The New Moon will peak in Sidereal Aries at 27°09ʻ at 1:01 PM Mauna Time, and this symbolizes a fresh start! With the way 2020 went and how 2021 started, the energy doesnʻt feel very different, but with this Mahina Hou, you will feel a major shift. This isnʻt going to be a gentle nudging from Akua, youʻll either get thrown into something or feel a strong calling to do things differently.
The overall theme for this Mahina Hou—10 of Wands reversed and 9 of Cups—is to make sure youʻre not taking on more than you can handle, and also doing things that will give you a sense of liberation. Letting go of old baggage and moving into a direction that will invite abundance, because honey, weʻre tired of all this heaviness. Itʻs time to step into prosperity because WE DESERVE IT! But thatʻs not going to fall in our laps, we have to put in the work. We have to make the conscious choice to say “this isnʻt working and now Iʻm going to start living my life this way instead.” It might feel more like a Full Moon with all the release that will be happening but the main goal is for a clean slate to begin again.
The New Moon is a time of new beginnings and setting intentions because it’s the start of a new lunar month, kind of like how we have a solar month with the Gregorian Calendar which uses a solar dating system. With the luminaries in the same sign, theyʻre on the same page and working together as a unit. This makes it much easier for you to receive their signals and instruction. Think about what you want to achieve over the next 28 (or so) days. This can be a quiet and more inward time for you. Use this tie to nurture yourself, plant seeds of intention, and go easy; while still working on implementing new things. Use this week to strategize, and envision where you want to be by the end of the lunar month and since the Moon is in the sign of Aries, we’ll be planting seeds with Arian qualities.
This cardinal fire sign is ruled by the planet Mars and associated with the 1st hale. The energy is action-oriented, aggressive, adventurous, fearless, and impulsive. This will not be a time to sit still and contemplate life or play small. Weʻll be ramming through self-imposed limitations and external roadblocks. Aries is disruptive, assertive, and never asks for permission.
What to Expect
Since Aries is the first sign of the Zodiac, and the Mahina Hou is the first phase of the Lunar Month, expect to start something brand new. When the New Moon was in Pisces, it was a time for dreaming big and overcoming fears keeping you from those dreams. Enter Aries and now itʻs time to WERK!
with this Mahina Hou
Itʻs hard to find that balance between work and relationships, when to fight and when to keep the peace. The Aries/Libra axis deals with finding that happy medium between going after the things you want to accomplish and fighting for what you want, but also holding space for the important people in your life, being graceful/tactful and creating harmony. So set some boundaries by sticking to your “work hours.” Donʻt go over and definitely donʻt do less. Don’t be aggressive, pick and chose your battles wisely.
There are no major aspects happening on the Mahina during this time.
