The New Moon is the time to begin new projects;
whatever house it transits in the birth chart will
be the prominent theme for the month. Usually, the
twelve houses are "visited" by the New Moon around
the same time each year, and when the New Moon
transits the First House, it signifies the querent's
Lunar New Year, and the beginning of a new cycle.

This marks the Lunar New Year for the sign of Aries.

The New Moon in Aries represents energy,
enthusiasm and new beginnings...

Aries is a sign known for strength, initiative, and
courage; Mars, the ruler of the sign Aries, represents
the "warrior" archetype, and is a powerful planetary
energy to invoke when one needs courage as well as
focused leadership. Aries is ruled by the element of
fire, so matters ruled by that element can be a focus
now as well.

Matters ruled by the fire element: light, illumination,
energy, spirit, heat, life, will, healing, sexuality,
purification, banishing illness, contests, creativity,
protection, success, strength, candle flames, sun,
deserts, volcanoes, explosions, courts, law.

Following the path of the New Moon through the natal
houses can give an indication of where the focus will
lie, not only as far as external events, but what to
expect on a psychological level as well. By observing
the lunar cycles, you can attune to the spiritual
aspects as well as the practical, following the Moon
as it passes through each of the twelve houses.
Each one of the astrological houses represents a
particular domain in the querent's life, and by
focusing on the energies of that house, it can be
an auspicious time to start new projects or deal
with the everyday issues of that house.

Read your rising sign as well as your Sun sign, for
a more accurate forecast.

More advanced:
Look at your birth chart. Where does 11 deg 38'
Aries fall [what house]? When you figure it out,
find the corresponding forecast below [depending
on the degree, it will most often be found under
your rising sign, but sometimes it is for the
sign either immediately preceding it or following
your rising sign... so if your rising sign is
Taurus, it will be under Aries, Taurus or Gemini...
but you need to look at your birth chart first.]

This month marks the end of the Lunar Year
for you, where you have one more month of
working out the old issues during this New
Moon cycle. This is a time to get ready to be
reborn anew, during the New Moon NEXT
month in your sign. Focus now on how you
want to approach your next cycle, and work on
removing any mental or psychological
obstacles that stand in your way. The twelfth
house rules the subconscious realm,
and can be an excellent time for holistic
healing work and many forms of therapy. The
twelfth house represents the unconscious
drives and urges that greatly affect our lives
even when we are not consciously aware of
them, as well as our desire to "return to the
womb" and become "one with everything". A
great time for spiritual and meditative
practices, as well as all forms of therapy or
holistic healing.

TWELFTH HOUSE: solitude, introspection,
research and investigation, therapy, the
subconscious realm, psychic abilities, dreams.
