Aloha, magical kittens! Well, it’s that time again: time to clear our minds and hearts, to take a look at the the cycles of our lives, and reset our intentions. Remember, if you want to share the way you celebrated this New Moon with our #radicalselflovecoven, be sure to snap a picture and hashtag it!
The New Moon kicks off tomorrow, and it’s going to be gorgeous. No matter where you are on the planet, I encourage you to harness this energy: it is potent, powerful and glorious! As always, Mystic Medusa gives an astrological overview below, and I’ve got suggestions to help you make the most of what’s going on in the sky!

IN THE SKY… (Mystic Medusa)
FINALLY, a New Moon that is not an Eclipse nor even remotely connected with the Zap Zone (Uranus square Pluto mid-2012 until early 2015) that is now behind us and soon to be receding into the distance.
By now whatever revolutionary upheaval in your life it was that you needed is most likely done with and you’re now setting about the hard but awesome work of building the new paradigm.
Happily, this New Moon ushers in the most amazing ten days for building anything. A Grand Earth synergy blesses rebuilt rapport, new or rapidly improving relationships, shoring up home security and domestic stability or the making of money via a rebooted attitude toward prosperity.
It’s sensual, avaricious and grounded.
There ARE some Mars-Venus squares around the New Moon so if you’re basing your assessment of an attraction or a romance on dodgy data, you find out by the New Moon. But it’s not drastic astrology – it’s just SO good for self-actualisation that you’re not going to drag anyone unsuitable into this fab new terrain with you.
ON THE GROUND… (Gala Darling)
This has been a big transitional period for many of us. By now, you probably know what it is you need to do to evolve, and to align your day-to-day life with your vision and values. Like Mystic said, this is a wonderful time to do this — you are being totally supported by the Universe. Take a big breath, and start making plans!
MAKE A VISION BOARD
One of the fastest ways to bring your dreams to reality is to create a vision board. Don’t be intimidated by the name, they’re easy to make: it’s basically just a collage! You can either cut clippings out of magazines, or get really specific and use Pinterest or Google Image Search to find photos of the exact things you want. Tempting though it may be to make a digital vision board, there is something extra-magical about cutting out the pictures, sticking them down, and shaking a little glitter on it!
For bonus points, take a photo of your vision board, and set it as your wallpaper on your computer and phone. You’ll draw those things towards you with lightning speed!
GET INTO NATURE
This is a very grounded New Moon, so embrace that. Instead of meditating on a cushion, go outside! Instead of living in your headphones, listen to the song of the birds. Take off your shoes and scrunch your toes in the grass or the sand, give yourself a mud mask, pick flowers, buy some new crystals, spend time in a garden or up a tree. It will feel great to get connected with the Earth in a real way.
DO YOUR BEST ARIES IMPRESSION
Aries know how to make things happen. To celebrate the New Moon in Aries, try these…
Honour your head! Aries rules the head, so do something that makes you feel like you’re worshipping your own noggin. Try a radical scalp massage, wearing a beautiful flower crown, or spraying your hair with perfume!
Move your body! Dance ecstatically, go for a swim, jump a fence into your neighbour’s yard and “borrow” their trampoline for a little bit. It’ll feel incredible.
Do some brainstorming. Aries loves to invent and create new things, so harness this energy to get those creative juice flowing.
Own your decisions. You don’t need to apologise to anyone else for feeling the way you do, or wanting the things you want. It’s your life, and you are allowed to live it however you want!
Just start! No matter what you want to do next, take one little step towards making it happen. Remember, absolutely everything is progress.
I’m going to be spending my New Moon on a beach in Mexico… With a flower crown on my head, my toes in the sand, and a big smile on my face. I hope your New Moon is sensational. If you give any of these suggestions a try, I’d love to see what you get up to! Just post your photos to Instagram with the hashtag #radicalselflovecoven!
P.S. Mystic is on the cusp of creating month-long subscriptions, so if you want to pop in and out — check your Tarot, get the Scopes — but you’re not ready to commit, you can! It should be up and running by the end of April. Keep your eyes on her site, although you should be doing that already!
