So I’m a couple of days late with posting my goals for the Aries new moon. This is in part to the craziness that we’re dealing with now (the novel coronavirus pandemic; where the total numbers in the US have topped 100K), and as I’ve told several people—my two goals are to 1) not catch the virus; and 2) get through the insanity with my sanity intact. That said—posts are probably going to be sporadic again for the next couple of months.
So the moon moved through the Aries constellation earlier this week, and with it started a new astrological calendar (as Aries is the first zodiac sign)—therefore in a way we can try to start things over again, or start anew depending on your views.
So what are some things that one can work on during the Aries new moon (and actually in general since a good portion of the world is still under quarantine)?
Those things include:
Taking action on dreams and plans.
Make a 12-month plan
Be courageous in moving towards achieving your goals.
Have some fun
Focus on you
Then if one looks to see what house Aries is passing through—for me it’s passing through my 6th house or my daily work and health zone. So for me that means I actually should sit down and try to develop a daily schedule that will allow me to focus on both aspects of my life currently: fitness/health and personal/professional development (and job searching).
So what are some of the things that one can do during this time to improve things in their sixth house?
Recommit to some type of exercise program
Think about (correct if need be) 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
So I always find it a little uncanny at times how accurate the moons transition is through the houses (especially when I know there are certain things I should be focusing on). This is again one of the areas (namely the nutrition; though working on my transition plan is still high on the list as well). I am happy to say that I’ve been sticking with a workout program (I’ve only missed three days out of the last five weeks—two days last week and today).
So which things am I going to try to focus on over the next few weeks?
Making a 12-month plan. I tried last year and probably went too far into detail in some areas and totally overwhelmed myself.
Continuing with Morning Meltdown 100 (should finish it up in early June)
Work on my eating habits (try to start getting a few more servings of fruits and veggies in)
Read a book on positive thinking (or at least on positive psychology)
Continue to meditate nightly
And as the insanity continues to run wildly around—remember: Progress, not Perfection
