Happy New Moon! This Aries New Moon becomes exact on Friday, April 5 at 4:50 AM EDT (08:50 GMT).
Are you ready to kickstart your destiny? I know that may sound like a paradox, but what if your destiny is waiting for you and just needs for you to turn the ignition key, so to speak? This is what Aries is all about: as the first sign of the Zodiac, it is the igniter, the starter. It's the Ace of Wands, if you are familiar with the tarot.
I have dubbed 2019 'A Breakout Year for Lightworkers'. So many of us are really meant to make big leaps and bounds this year in business, wellness, relationships, and more. The first quarter of 2019 was all about clearing out our proverbial backpacks of those things we don't need the burden of carrying forward with us anymore.
This Aries New Moon is kindling the fire of springtime, providing the perfect energetic gateway to get moving on new projects that could end up providing long-term support and benefits for both us and our fellow man and woman. Furthermore, with Mercury finally going back Direct, the confusion about our individual futures—which was such a commonly shared experience in March—is giving way to a sense of clarity about our futures.
These prevalent energies may be asking for you to take a calculated risk. I say calculated, because one of the shadow aspects of Aries is the propensity to take unnecessary or unwise risks. The energies are ripe for opportunities to appear in front of you this month, especially around your business/career, but also possibly around relationships too.
The difference between taking a calculated risk that pays massive dividends and an unnecessary risk that either doesn't pay or even sets you back is often predicated on how adept you are at utilizing your intuition. This type of Aries energy is really asking you to trust your intuition rather than capitulate to old fears.
The most accurate mechanism for your intuition is unequivocally your body. Your body holds the records of all things within, and it knows which possible futures are most aligned with your Highest Destiny. Trust any possible decision that feels good, warm, safe, or exciting. Question any possible choice that feels murky, uninteresting, 'old', or stale, or if it feels like you're being forced into something.
It takes a tremendous amount of courage to follow your intuition—especially if it means taking a leap of Faith that the Universe will provide for you all that you need, even if the 'how' of it is unclear. This is the type of courage that will really pay off this month and may literally set you up for your future. For example, you may find yourself taking a new job in a new city which you end up falling in love with, and two weeks after moving in, you meet your Twin Flame and live happily ever after!
These energies are setting us up for something 'big'. They are delivering us to exactly where we need to be to either begin in earnest or really accelerate and amplify our Service Work.
YOUR SERVICE WORK: THE REASON WHY YOU'RE HERE
As I have said many times, the Highest vibration of 5D is not Joy, Celebration, Bliss, or Ecstasy: it's actually Service. As Angels-in-Training here on this Earth plane, each and every one of us has come here with a specific type of Service Work to do. This is not a chore, or something you should be dreading; it's literally the reason why you're here! When you create or 'fall into' your Service Work, it is a great feeling of satisfaction, and at times—yes, Bliss!
I work probably about 65 hours a week (or more) in between working directly with clients, writing, researching, and taking care of the other parts of my business. I can absolutely say that I enjoy every minute of it—it's pretty much all I think about! I find myself daily experiencing moments of complete gratitude, as I realize how amazing it is that I've created/'fallen into' my Divine Service Work. I am in awe that God/Creator/Source has chosen me as a channel to assist so many other beautiful Souls. There's no other work in the world for me, except this. I've found my calling and my reason for being.
I wish for each and every one of you reading this to discover the same for yourself. You deserve it, and we need you to find that! Or more accurately, for that to find you, which it most certainly will. It's actually so crucial that you find/create/'fall into' your Service Work that the Ascension process cannot actually complete itself without your contribution! If there are steps that you are feeling called to take this month that may bring you closer to that Service Work, then do it! Take that leap!
Each and every one of us has a specific Service Mission. And not every single one of us is meant to be a life coach, spiritual teacher, or Reiki Master, although many of us are. There are an infinite number of avenues that your Service work could take. There is so much suffering on this planet. Gaia needs so much help. And we are the ones who are on the front lines fighting this battle for her.
So if you feel called to work helping people to heal, then do it! Take that course or that class. If you desire to work with and help animals, then go volunteer or look for a job at the animal shelter. If you feel like you have a book or a YouTube series within you, then get started! If there is art inside you waiting to burst out onto a canvas or a photograph, get creating! One of the 'rules' of your Service Work is that it it is always something that you enjoy. If you don't enjoy it, and it doesn't fill your Heart with a sense of well-being, purpose, and gratitude, it's not your true Service Work. Perhaps it is an avenue to your true Service Work—a connecting flight, so to speak. Every skill you learn, and every job you ever work, is by design. Each and every skill or job is either training you with skills that will somehow apply to your Divine Service Work, or, it is providing you with the feedback that that skill or job isn't for you, providing you the fuel to search for what is for you.
A big part of my Service Work on this planet is serving as a catalyst for others. When others come into my field of influence, whether as a client, a friend, an acquaintance, or just someone perusing my website or watching my videos, they often have something 'spark' inside them. I am intending to provide you with that spark that helps you to access your inner courage this month to step forward and take a leap in some area of your life!
If you are feeling called to work with me directly, I would encourage you to consider my Spiritual Mentoring Program. I have assisted many dear Souls in discovering their Divine Service Work and stepping into their Soul's Highest Destiny. If you have been considering starting a spiritually-themed business, I also offer energetic and practical assistance in getting this from a concept in the mental realm to a successful business in the 3D/5D. You can check out my Spiritual Mentoring Program here.
