Energy Forecast: New Moon = Fresh Perspective!



“My life is going to look nothing like it did before the Pandemic, so what have I got to lose?” 

My client made this profound statement as she explained why she was able to speak up and express her relationship “deal breakers” to a guy she had been dating.

She asked more clearly than ever before for what she needed to move the relationship to the next level–seeing him indoors. 

Crazy, the considerations we have to make these days. And yet, look at how it can provide such clarity about your heart’s needs.

She needed to know he shared her Covid safety measures and that he could be open and honest with her about how he was feeling.

While we are all sick and tired of the limitations the pandemic has placed on our lives, these limitations create the opportunity to be more present to your feelings and voice; if you see it this way. 

This all came about because he missed a walk they had planned. 

When she called to see if he was on his way and he was clearly going somewhere else, she was taken aback but said nothing.

Then, she was pissed at both herself and him.

Being brave enough to speak from her heart brought them closer together. 

This could have gone a different way. 

While the world is trying to get “back to normal,” I invite you to look for the the new possibilities and opportunities to honor your heart in every Covid Consideration—

Especially right now!

The choices, words, and emotions we put out into the world are always coloring our reality, but at the time of this New Moon their influence is accelerated.

Be mindful of your thoughts, words, and the choices you are making at this time. Be sure they are aligned with that which you wish to attract. Be sure that you are focusing on what you want, rather than what you don’t want.


Someone in one of my classes asked me, “Nothing I am working on right now is panning out. Everything is taking longer than expected. I know a lot of the hold-up is Covid related and out of my control, but I can’t shake my upset about it. Why am I getting so frustrated and annoyed?” 

At the time of this New Moon, we have Venus, ErisCeres, Mercury, Chiron, the Sun, and the Moon all in the sign of Aries, making for a strong dose of fiery energy.

The energy of fire is about passion, moving forward, and allowing our desires, rather than out fears to guide our way.


With this fiery energy, you may feel more pressure to make things happen and to get what you want. 

If or when anything happens to thwart your plans, see if you can take the space this setback provides to get more present.

Even if you don’t like it, there is power in being in acceptance of what is and what is in your heart, simultaneously.

When you find yourself upset about something that doesn’t come through when you want it, take some time to journal and answer these questions:

  1. What do I want now? 
  2. How can I get my needs met in this situation?
  3. How can I give myself what I want in this scenario? 

Regardless of what happens, if you can get your needs met as things shift and change, you will be OK, maybe even better than before!

Practically and astrologically, it is the time to get more intimate with your own heart. 

Rather than judging how life is going by what is happening, I invite you to pay more attention to how you are feeling through it all.

Presence = Power 

Giving yourself what you want right now has the power to dramatically transform your life for the better.

Nightly Aries New Moon Ritual:

To take advantage of the manifesting energy of this New Moon, for the next week, do this ritual to help you get present to the power of your own heart before bed. 

With your fingers touching in a cone shape, place the fingertips of your right hand on your Heart Chakra, and place the fingertips of your left hand three inches in from your under arm on your upper left chest. Feel around in that general area for a tender spot. This is a key Lung Meridian Point that, when held with your Heart Chakra, can help you have more faith in the power of your own heart.

Rest your fingertips on these points until you feel strong matching pulses in both hands and your body relax, as you repeat this phrase:

As I honor my heart, I can trust myself and my life. 

It may take three to five minutes to feel pulses. 

So much love and power,

  1. Thank you Lara,
    I recently needed to tell my hot fiery Aries sweetheart that his temper outbursts were hurting our relationship. At first he was taken aback by what I said, but then he and I resolved to communicate better.
    We also lost my 21 year old pygmy goat, Barney last week, a sudden big stroke right in front of both of us and the barn cat. This loss has brought us much closer together. We are getting a pair of new kids, in a month. There is renewal and transition happening in our lives. I am grateful.

    1. So glad you were able to take a difficult situation and turn it into something positive. So sorry to hear about your goat. Sending my love.
