First quarter moons remind you to take initiative. This is a time to move things forward and create momentum. Change doesn’t happen from sheer will. You have to be proactive and do the work in order to see progress.
Aries rules the 1st house which represents your SELF.
With this first quarter moon in Aries, ask yourself:
How am I aligned with what I want to do?
What action steps do I need to take right now?
What are the challenges + obstacles in my way?
Do I really want what I want or am I in love with the idea of it?
How can I track my progress?
It’s time to take those ideas and turn them into action. Planning can only get you so far. At some point, you will need to do something about it and that time is now. Aries energy is all about action, taking charge, and bravery. Harness this energy to move your vision forward and step into your power.
Brainstorming and planning is not executing. It’s preparing for execution. This is the time to turn the switch into the on position.
Publish that blog post you have been working on for a while. Email that person you want to work with. Buy that domain name + web hosting.
In other words, take ACTION!
In this entrepreneurial journey, the path is NOT linear. There will be times where you may have to reverse course and start all over again. There may be times where you’ll have to trash all the work you’ve done because it’s either not applicable or you decided to go in a different direction.
This is not failing. This is pivoting. There’s nothing wrong with shifting your efforts. You are always on the path you’re meant to be on even when you feel like you’re going backward. Give yourself the gift of learning these lessons by taking action.
Launch before you’re ready. Publish before it’s perfect. This is the only way you’re going to learn how to improve and evolve. Success is rarely a one-shot deal. You have to work at it by taking risks and allowing those teachable moments to guide your next steps.
Aries energy can highlight your Imposter Syndrome. Don’t let it define you but instead use that energy to redefine yourself for yourself.
What can you initiate right now?
This quarter moon at the beginning of the year is so that you can take those new moon intentions and transform them into reality. Break down your vision and create concrete action steps.
The first quarter moon in Aries is inviting you to connect with yourself to make sure you are aligning with who you are and what you want to do so that you’re bringing into your life those experiences, people, and things that you want. This is not the start of a new journey. You are reaching the first mile marker. Use this time to cross the threshold.
If you still need to figure out those action steps, grab a piece of paper and brainstorm the following:
“What needs my attention right now?”
