The New Moon in Aries – The Astrological New Year
The Astrological New Year – will commence on March 21, 2023 at1:23pm.
Do you know how the energy of the New Year will affect you. I find that reviewing your personal Astrology Chart, compared to the New Moon at the New Year offers much insight. This comparison Chart is one of many that we offer. If you have not spent time reviewing your chart, now is a good time to look at it.
Try Something New
It is more than just a Happy Monday affirmation for today. It is New Moon at the end of the Astrological year. It’s time to figure out where you are and where you want to be.
This month do some things for the first time. Move out of your comfort zone, become a beginner again and get lost in your magnificent life.
Create a list of new to-do’s, and then, for the next month step out of the familiar and get lost in the possibility of new adventures. Here are a few ideas to get you started.
- Try a new restaurant
- Try a new type of cuisine.
- Find a new place to hike or trail to explore.
- Visit a new neighborhood.

Your comfort zone is what has gotten you to where you are today. Insanity is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting a different result. You can ask the question about where you may want to be in the furture. An exact answer may not come to you right away. But you might see a new direction. Rather than thinking you need a complete plan, start yourself along that pathway. Once you move forward, look around a bit and get your bearings. And start again. Small steps.
Oh, and it’s North America Day
In the US, we celebrate President’s Day today. It is on or about the third Monday of the month off February. We used to celebrate George Washington’s on the Third weekend in Feb, and Lincoln’s Birthday on the Second. There is some question as to whether it is a federal holiday or a state holiday. All I know is that when I was a kid in California, it was two consecutive 3-day weekends.
I think it all kind of resolved itself into a single President’s Day holiday when they had to find room for aonther holiday on the third Monday in January. So WTF, squeeze these two together and there you go. I wonder if that is how it worked for Juneteenth?
Also, to be equally as confuced and F’d up, most of Canada’s provinces have a holiday on the Third Monday of February. Some call it family day. Other’s Heritage day. Frankly it is about as made up as Boxing Day (you know, the day after Christmas that the Aristocrats allow their servants to celebrate with their families? Or is that the day they all jump in a frozen pond in their boxers? I have no idea.)
I would suggest one of two things. 1) Change it to Universal North America Day and invite Mexico to take part as well, or 2) Just call it Happy Monday!
