New Moon in fiery, and action-packed Aries!

Aries rising friends, this is your one chance during 2019 to tap into this fiery and action-packed Aries new Moon energy.

Creating an even more unique circumstance, is the new Moon in Bharani!

May 2016 was the last time we had a new Moon in the lunar mansion of Bharani, and we won't have another new Moon in Bharani until 2022!!!

For all rising signs, new beginnings and endings are extremely well supported since the nakshatra involved is Bharani!

Water signs (Cancer, Scorpio, Pisces) may feel more tension and the desire for change around this new Moon than others. However, this new Moon in Aries will represent a specific area of life for ALL rising signs!
