Last night’s Spring Equinox, or Ostara as some may call it, wastes no time as she immediately ushers in tonight’s powerful new moon in Aries and the first new moon of our astrological year.

While January signifies the start of our new calendar year, in astrology Aries season is our astrological reboot, welcoming in those springtime energies and cultivating the wild and untamed spirit of new beginnings.

But aren’t new moons ALWAYS about new beginnings, you ask?
Well yes, you would be right, HOWEVER, this new moon is an incredibly special one, with new beginnings on top of new beginnings, ON TOP of new beginnings!

Double the Aries Energy = Double the Confidence, the bold attitude and the strong energetic drive to push forward toward your goals! 

Couple that energy with that of the total solar eclipse that is happening in conjunction right now, and you’ve got some real added power and force to make bigger moves, pivot through difficult transitions with greater ease and achieve those larger-than-life aspirations and opportunities that may initially appeared out of your reach. 

Both the Spring Equinox and returning to the beginning of the zodiac cycle signify the first “spark” of light after a winter of darkness, with the flicker of Aries’ fire lighting the match.

This revival of light literally serves as the “waking up and coming alive” after a long period of darkness and hibernation, setting fire to our intentions, goals and yes, even our relationships, as we enter into this new phase of the zodiac.

Aries brings in her FIRE, her CREATION and her CONFIDENT AND COMPASSIONATE SPIRIT, making for a magical and inspired energy promoting:


As the ruler of this specific lunation, Mars is coming in hot with what she brings to the table… power, motivation, sexuality, ambition, aggression and conflict.

Amidst all these fresh beginnings, make sure to take a look to see what is either in the process of dying away and or/ transforming.

  • Are there power struggles or conflicts within your relationships at home or at work?
  • Is a relationship or a pattern within it suddenly not serving you anymore?
  • Are you all of a sudden feeling as if there is a need (possibly one that you didn’t even know you had…) that is not currently being met?
  • Are you ready for a change at work or within the dynamics of your home?

In exploring this aspect of the new moon more deeply, we respectfully borrow this excerpt from Refinery29:

To use these vibes to the best of their abilities, Campos advises us to not lose sight of our long-term vision as we work towards our goals.”To manifest under this new moon, focus on yourself,” she says. “Do you have a particular goal in mind? Do you want to show up in the world in a more authentic way? Is there a risk you’ve felt called to take, but your logical mind continues to talk yourself out of it? How can you take better care of yourself spiritually, emotionally or physically?

These transcendental workshops will blend the restorative energies of Yin Yoga and the healing powers of Reiki to create a vibe that is both relaxing to the physical body and soothing to the nervous system.

Join Mel and Kat for this magical offering in our candlelit sanctuary. This calming combination of Yin yoga (slow deep stretching) and reiki energetic healing is incredibly nurturing. It will give you a renewed sense of health, serenity, openness, and clarity.

Benefits of these practices include:

⭐Assisting in the body’s natural healing processes

⭐Improving physical, emotional, mental and spiritual well being (Whole Body Reset)

⭐Reduced anxiety, stress and tension

The Reiki practitioner(s) will spend time individually on each person and on the room as a whole.

The healing energy of Reiki within the room will intuitively release any stress, tension and stagnant energy and bring you into a state of total peace and relaxation.
