New Moon Ritual – April 11th
Tonight’s New Moon comes in at 10:31 pm EDT in Aries.
This New Moon asks you to commit to personal goals. It’s time to take action, be assertive, start a new project and discover or grow your personal courage.
This is also a strong cycle under which to re-evaluate your relationship to yourself. With Aries energy, you have the chance to make changes, implement solid plans and set the stage for reaping rewards from new beginnings.
Aries is the first sign of the zodiac, which makes a New Moon in Aries especially ripe with opportunity.
It’s asking us to look at our life and evaluate what is worth fighting for: Relationships, career decisions, boundaries, personal beliefs — this is the time to reflect on what we’re willing to fight for.
Align your thoughts and choices to what you say you want most.
Get in touch with your WHY.
Why do you not follow-through to get what you want? Why do you allow what you know you cannot in order to elevate? Why do you ignore your own needs?
If you don’t properly channel the fiery energy of this new moon, you may find yourself frustrated and resentful.
Don’t waste this opportunity to embrace the higher version of yourself.
You’ll see super high flames in tonight’s spellwork. I used abundance ritual paper to burn collective blocks and limits and it burned like a mofo…
When I pulled cards tonight, I asked to be shown what we needed to see in order to keep moving forward the way Aries inspires us to.
Card 1: Knight of Pentacles – Hard work, productivity, routine
The Knight of Pentacles represents work, effort and responsibility. This Knight is the most hard-working, methodical and detailed-oriented character of the Tarot deck.
He may not be the most inspiring or creative Knight, but he’ll do the work to get the results he wants, even if that work is highly repetitive or routine.
When this card appears in a reading, you are working methodically toward your goals. You have a plan in place and are sticking to your schedule to get the job done. You are consistent, dedicated and committed to your goal.
This card asks you to continue doing what you are doing, plodding along and making gradual progress. No need to change your approach. Go with the flow, stick to your usual routines, and over time, you will reach your goals.
The Knight of Pentacles suggests that you are taking a moderated and conservative approach to life right now, and while you may be feeling that change is imminent, you are sticking to your tried and tested ways of doing things.
It may not necessarily be an exciting period, but at least you know you are on the right path. Even if you are growing tired and want to quit, this Knight invites you to keep at it, and you will eventually see success.
Card 2: 5 of Wands – Conflict, disagreements, competition, tension, diversity
In the Tarot, the Fives typically represent conflict and change. The Five of Wands is no exception.
This card indicates you’re in the midst of battle, tension or competition with others and it is impacting your ability to move forward with your goals.
Rather than being able to work towards a common goal, you are running up against constant opposition.
With the Five of Wands, everyone is fighting to be heard. But guess what? No one is listening.
If you find yourself in this situation, see it as an opportunity to rise above the chaos and disorder. Take a moment to listen to what others have to say – even if you agree to disagree. The key is to tune in to one another and allow each person to make their case.
Sometimes, this type of conflict and discussion can be productive, like with group brainstorming or problem-solving. Be open to debate as a positive contribution to improving the quality of your ideas and actions.
The Five of Wands also encourages diversity and differences of opinion. You may deal with people from different cultures and backgrounds and struggle to accept their way of living.
The Five of Wands encourages an enthusiastic approach to change. Transition (or even transformation) is coming whether or not you like it.
Card 3: 10 of Pentacles – Wealth, financial security, family, long-term success, contribution
The Ten of Pentacles is a VERY positive sign you have reached a point of completion in your journey. It’s likely to be the result of a successful career path, smart financial investments, a stable home environment or a possible committed, long-term relationship.
You have accumulated wealth and abundance through your hard work and dedication and can now relish sharing this wealth with others. This is one of those cards that promise everything will eventually come together and you will be proud of everything you achieved.
When the Ten of Pentacles appears in a reading, you are surrounded by wealth and blessed with financial abundance. There is no wanting for any more. You have everything you need, especially within the material realm.
You are financially secure and trust that, because of your personal successes and accomplishments, you will always have what you need and desire. You express sincere gratitude for fulfilling your material goals and dreams.
This card reflects permanence and creating a lasting foundation for future success. It is a card of commitment to a sustainable future, taking into consideration not just the short-term gains of a particular venture but also the long-term benefits.
Get your shit done – even the mundane. Stay the course. Hear people out, but most especially listen to YOURSELF. And success is inevitable.
Clarifying card – 6 of Pentacles – Giving, receiving, sharing wealth, generosity, charity
You may be like the wealthy man in this card, sharing your wealth and abundance with others. You have accumulated great wealth and are now in a position to offer financial assistance to those in need.
Even if you are not financially wealthy, you offer up your time, energy, love and support to those who are in need, knowing it will be appreciated. Giving of your time or your wisdom is often just as spiritually fulfilling as giving away money or gifts, and the intangible gift of your presence is received just as well, if not better.
There may be times when you wonder if you can truly afford to give generously to others – and the wise advice of the Six of Pentacles is to trust that every contribution you make is valued and will come back to you threefold.
On the other hand, you may be on the receiving end of other people’s generosity, accepting these gifts with gratitude. This will help you to get back on your feet and to eventually repay the charitable organisation or individual, either with your time or your restored wealth.
You will also need to identify ways in which you can become more self-sufficient in the long run.
Finally, the Six of Pentacles is a card representing financial harmony. The amounts flowing in and out are in balance, and you are thankful for what you have and happy to share with others in need.
