Aries New Moon Goals: “Starting a new zodiac year”

So the moon is moving through Aries today (as a new moon), and this also marks the start of a new astrological calendar (as Aries is the first sign in astrology). We have started the second quarter of the year, and now is a time to reflect on the past quarter and decide to change things up if things haven’t been working.

So what are some of the things that one can do during the Aries new moon period?

            Take action on your dreams.

            Make a 12-month plan.

            Be courageous.

            Have some fun.

            Focus on yourself.

Then if I look to see what house/zone Aries is moving through as well—it is going through my sixth house: or the daily work and health zone. So this is also the time to focus on my daily work and health routines. This is the time to look at my current routines and make any changes necessary to ensure that I’m going in a more healthy direction (in both terms of work and personal health/fitness).

So what are some of the things that one can do during this time to help improve their sixth house?

            Recommit to some type of exercise program (either going to the gym or doing something on your own).

            Think about your eating habits.

            Help someone out this month.

            Talk to your boss about any work concerns you might have.

            Read a book on positive thinking.

            Eat healthy lunches or dinners for one month—no exceptions.

            Learn to meditate.

I do think that it’s a little uncanny how accurate it is that as the moon is transitioning, currently it hit on my sixth house. This is one area (namely more the daily health than daily work—though that is also an area that needs focus) that I really do need to try to focus more on, as I have let my fitness routines fall by the wayside the past six weeks or so.

So my small list of things to focus on during this new moon period will be the following:

            Making a 12-month plan. This is going to encompass both personal and professional area of my life.

            Recommit to a workout program

            Work on my eating habits (I do know that quite a bit of my bad habits stem from both stress and poor sleeping). Notice I didn’t say diet—but habits. I’m trying to work on basically having things in moderation and working on serving sizes.

            Read a book on positive thinking (I’m pretty sure that I have one or two on my large to-be-read e-pile; but I’ll look at amazon and see what I either have or I will purchase a book or two).

            Then finally, continue to try to mediate nightly. I’ve realized lately that my mind still races a little too much when I do try to mediate and I call it quits after about two minutes. Also I’ve realized that my racing thoughts have also made it a little difficult to do a accurate and decent tarot/oracle card reading—I may need to meditate for a few minutes before attempting to do a reading.

Taurus New Moon Goals: Update

So we’ve gone through yet another cycle of the moon. It has left Taurus, transitioned through Sagittarius (the past full moon) and will (or has) entered into the Gemini constellation. So before I look ahead to see what I should be trying to focus on within the Gemini new moon, I thought I’d do a reflection back on the few goals I set for Taurus new moon.

 

Those goals for the Taurus new moon included: (1) Drink my water, (2) try to mediate at least three times a week (bonus if I can do it daily—though that might not happen during vacation); and (3) remember that it is fine to disagree with people and that not every person is meant to stay in one’s life.

 

So I’ve been managing at least 40 oz. of water a day. This is less than the usual recommended amount of 64-80, but it is something. Most days I usually manage closer to 50 to 60 oz. Part of the problem is that when I’m busy working I may easily go an hour or more without getting a drink of water. Plus depending on my mood—I may not have finished my tea yet (I usually use that mug also for my water afterwards). But I am trying to make sure that I drink at least two mugs of water before leaving work (that way its at least 40 oz). Then in the evening I try to drink a little more. Obviously this is something that I still need to work on making sure that I get a good (somewhere between 60 and 80 oz.) amount in a day.

 

I’m trying to get back into the mediation routine (I’ve managed almost all this week—and that was with having not done it for almost a month). It may not necessarily be five minutes, but if I can even manage two or three minutes I take it as a win. Again, this is something that I’m trying to get back in the habit of doing more of, as I find I do sleep better after quieting my mind for a while.

 

There will always be people you disagree with and that can be hard to deal with. I’m just trying to remember that one should always try to keep the workplace a decent place to work (I won’t say happy because one can’t always be happy all the time), but it should be somewhere that you enjoy going to do majority of the time.

 

I managed some portions of all the goals, and I know that I’m still going to work on them continuously to try to help achieve that work life balance.
