New Moon in Aries
We start the April cycle with the New Moon in Aries which really does take on the theme of ‘new beginnings‘ to a different level. Aries is the first sign of the zodiac and when the Sun shifted into Aries on 21st March we experienced the astrological new year. In the Northern Hemisphere we also saw the beginning of Spring, the season of growth, while those in the Southern Hemisphere experienced the autumn equinox and the start of release.
This new moon is more about starting something new than any other. We put so much weight on the ‘New Year’ and the 1st of January as a time to begin, however the lunar and seasonal cycles do not support this. I love this time of the year because no matter which hemisphere you live its a perfect time to start fresh.
What is a New Moon All About?
The New Moon occurs when the Sun and the Moon meet in the sky causing the Moon to go dark when viewed from the Earth. The New Moon falls between the Waning Crescent (Balsamic Moon) and the Waxing Crescent Moon phases.
The New Moon is all about new beginnings, planting the seeds for the future and making plans. This is a time for contemplation and planning rather than action. This phase encourages introspection and connecting with our deeper selves and to do this in the modern world it’s essential that we slow right now.
As we head towards the New Moon we find that our energy levels start to drop. I know I’m certainly feeling it. This dark phase we’re in now encourages slowing down, healing and soothing.
When is the April New Moon in Aries?
I’m in the UK and the New Moon is at 09:50 on Friday 5th April.

What does it mean when the New Moon is in Aries?
- Sign Element: Fire
- Ruling Planet: Mars
- Quality: Cardinal
The Moon in Aries brings a tendency for conflict. More than any other time during the Moon Sign cycle emotional tension grows and people become impulsive and short-tempered.
This is the perfect time to let go of anything which winds you up or doesn’t support your goals and dreams. At the same time it’s helpful to practice self-control, limit exposure to stress.
- This moon sign is good for: Getting things done quickly
- This moon sign is not good for: Quiet introspective time
Things to do on a New Moon
Lunar Cycle Live
The Lunar Cycle runs from the New Moon to the dark Moon (the day before the next New Moon).
In the below live event replay I chat through what to expect from the lunar and cosmic energies for the cycle ahead.
Take Your New Moon Journey Even Further with The Magickal Moon Club
Inside The Magickal Moon Club like to celebrate the New Moon in Style!
On Friday 5th April I am hosting a New Moon Live Event inside the private Facebook Group (replay available) with members of the Magickal Moon Club. We get together to connect with the power of the New Moon through a guided visualisation. We then talk about the specific energy of the coming lunar cycle to help manifest our goals and dreams through a New Moon wishes ritual.
Also inside this month’s New Moon Guide and Workbook I talk about a rare astrological event which is happening during the Aries New Moon and another lunar energy feature which makes this one a bit different from the others too! We also have three planetary retrogrades to work with during this lunar cycle so there’s a lot going on, which is why I’ve included a retrograde guide in this months content to help navigate the upcoming energies.
April is going to be extra special as we have our guest Trudie Core from Indigo Grace guiding us to become master manifestors and I can’t wait to see what we achieve this month!
