The Moon is New in Aries on April 1, 2022, at 2:24 AM EDT. The New Moon occurs at 11° Aries 31′.
The following is the chart wheel of the New Moon in Aries occurring in 2022.
The New Moon in Aries marks the beginning of a new cycle. The Pisces New Moon cycle ends and the Aries New Moon cycle begins.
The New Moon in Aries is a good time to commit to personal goals that express the positive energies of the sign of the Ram. It’s time to take action – try something new and innovative, and go at it with gusto and confidence; be assertive without being abrasive; take charge of our lives; start a brand new project, and discover our own personal courage.
This is a strong cycle under which to re-evaluate our relationship with ourselves. With this potent Aries energy, we have the chance to make important changes in our lives. It’s time to make some solid yet realistic plans and to set the stage for reaping the rewards from our new beginnings, as little or big as they may be, in approximately two weeks’ time after the Full Moon occurs.
Aries is the first sign of the zodiac, and thus a New Moon in Aries is especially ripe with opportunity for new beginnings. We might consider acting on a constructive impulse and following a hunch or taking a risk.
Aries learns through experience and action, and we might treat ourselves to a little adventure now. It’s also a good cycle under which to discover the benefits of expressing ourselves with authenticity – expressing ourselves as we are, without putting on airs.
We might find ways to learn how to rely on ourselves and to be happy about doing so – it will go a long way towards finding inner happiness when we know that we can be self-sufficient without blaming others for not helping us out. It’s a time to revitalize ourselves through experiences that break the routine and that involve doing something new and fresh.
This New Moon aligns with Mercury and occurs when all major planets are direct, suggesting a courageous mindset and few obstacles. However, Mars, the ruler of Aries is applying to a conjunction to Saturn, and while we’re ready to work hard and pace ourselves, we can be combatting some fear of not being number one.
This phase of the Moon occurs at 11 degrees and 31 minutes of Aries, affecting people born with personal planets and points at approximately 8 to 16 degrees of the Cardinal signs (Aries, Cancer, and Libra, and Capricorn) most significantly.
I like to see two charts of the New Moon. The one above, using only the major bodies, is useful for seeing chart patterns and core influences. Adding additional points or bodies is helpful for seeing nuances, as follows:
