As we enter the Spring Equinox on March 20th, 2023, it’s a perfect time to refresh your body, mind, and spirit. Spring is traditionally the time for growth, renewal, birth, and fresh starts. Last year there was a full moon at the Spring Equinox. This Spring, it's a new moon. Last year's moon energy was perfect for releasing and completion, this year's new moon energy offers an amazing opportunity to start something new.

Here are three powerful tips that can help you make the most of this unique opportunity.

Tip #1 Utilize the Moon Energy

The potential for renewal is immense during this season as we are given a chance to reset our intentions and begin anew. Tuesday, March 21st, the Pisces New Moon cycle ends and the Aries New Moon cycle begins. Embrace the fierce spirit of the Ram, as you set your sights on personal goals that can help you re-evaluate your relationship with yourself. Dare to be honest and have the courage to make the necessary changes to clean up any messes you may have made -- or put up with -- and make plans that set yourself up for success.

  • Clarify Your Intentions: Use the new moon energy to gain clarity on what it is you want to manifest in your life. Take some time to set intentions, and focus on what is important to you. Be bold like the Ram, and create a plan of action that will help bring those intentions into reality.

  • Reflect and Release: Take time to reflect on your life and release any negative thoughts or feelings that you may be holding onto. Take a few moments to meditate and visualize yourself releasing those things which no longer serve you, so they can make room for new energy in your life.

Tip #2 Capitalize on Spring Energy

Spring is the season nature chooses to start anew. Capitalize on that energy and start a new life for yourself. Use the power of the Spring Equinox and get creative.

  • Give birth to your goals by putting your ideas down on paper. Writing them down helps solidify them. Be clear and concise.

  • Set realistic goals based on your work that clarified your intentions. If your intentions are to head West, don't start walking East! Check your goals against your intentions to insure you are setting yourself up for success.

  • Start working towards making them a reality. Get up off the couch, write that email, create that video, or put in your first deposit toward your financial goals. Take your first steps. This helps your commitment to your goals.

Tip #3. Find Balance

This is the perfect time to balance all aspects of your life and refresh any areas that need attention. You may feel both energized and overwhelmed by the power of the Equinox and Moon energy. Setting goals and clarifying what is important to you may also have you excited to get going! But remember balance. Take your time. Be mindful of your actions. Some things that might help:

  • De-clutter. Get busy and clean up your physical space. Straighten up your living quarters, your desk, your altar, or your yard. If you can't or don't have the time and energy to do them all, pick the most impactful area to start. It's easier to be successful in a clutter-free environment.

  • De-clutter your spiritual space. Spend some time reflecting on how you can achieve a more harmonious lifestyle. What thoughts, habits, and actions are not supportive of your desire for a new life? Negative self-talk is counterproductive and won't help you succeed. Stop it. You CAN do it. You ARE worthy.

  • Make choices. What supports your new goals and intentions, and what sabotages them? Some changes may be hard choices.

The Spring Equinox and the new moon energy this week offer a unique opportunity to refresh your body, mind, and spirit. By utilizing these 3 simple tips – utilizing New Moon energy, capitalizing on Spring energy, and finding balance – you can make the most of these powerful energies and create a fresh start in your life. Strive for harmony between internal and external elements by making choices that support rather than sabotage your goals. Embrace this special season of growth - it’s time to start anew!
