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 New Moon cycle finds you focused on
your home and family, and could signify
changes in the home environment. One or
both parents may be more of a major focus
than usual. A positive use of this energy is to
focus on adding beauty to your "temple", both
outer and inner. If you've been putting off
beginning a regular spiritual practice, this
would be an excellent time to begin. The New
Moon in the fourth house is about integration:
taking what you have learned and finding a
way to apply it to your own life. This is also a
time to just stop and take inventory of our
own feelings, needs and dreams, and
meditative practices can be especially
beneficial at this time.

FOURTH HOUSE: home life, parents,
remodeling, relocating, clearing old business,
plans for the future.
