What is the April new moon and what does it mean?

The April 2022 new moon is almost here. The significant new moon marks the beginning of the astrological new year. 

The new moon will peak on March 31 and April 1. If you’re looking to reboot your new year’s resolutions, the upcoming lunation would be a great time. New moons signify a fresh start and are an ideal time to set goals new or revisit old ones. Here’s what you need to know. 

What does the April 2022 new moon mean? 

“Astrologically speaking, this is the best time for beginning new projects, forming new relationships, as well as leaving behind things that might hold us back,” astrologer Lauren Ash told Bustle.

The new moon is a time to take stock of personal growth and to start manifesting your intentions. It also is a time to be a bit selfish. The April new moon is in Aries, the first zodiac sign known for its competitive nature and ambition. So it’s also a time to practice self-love, self-acceptance and self care. Finally take all that you-time you’ve been putting off. 

How to harness the power of the April 2022 new moon

Aries is a fire sign, so you’ll want to whip out your favorite candles for some fire manifestations. Simply light a candle, gaze at the flame and meditate about your goals and repeat some confidence-boosting affirmations. 

On a more practical level, if you’re career-oriented, now is the time to update your resume, apply for your dream job and tap into those LinkedIn connections. 

April might feel full-speed ahead with so much boss energy going around so be sure to take care of your mind and body by maintaining your self-care and wellness practices.
