First things first: Aries is a cardinal sign, a modality within astrology that’s all about initiation. Guess what’s also about initiation? New moons. This lunation is already the perfect time to set intentions and start anew, and with Aries’ cardinal energy on its side, it’s all the more potent.
Let NYLON astrologer David Odyssey break down the ram: “Armed with the ram’s horns and its own ideas, Aries bursts through the academic nonsense, and rearms the individual with their own sense of purpose.”
The new moon in Aries is also conjunct the celestial body Chiron, known as the wounded healer. Named after the Greek healer, philosopher, and teacher who, ironically, could not heal himself, this placement sheds light on our deepest wounds and how to heal them.
