A Spiritual-Bath Recipe For the New Moon in Aries

This New-Moon-in-Aries Baño Will Help You Climb to New Heights


Aries breathes a breath of fresh air into all that we do. The newness in every step provides us with a sense of acceptance for the things we've done in the past and how we'll rack up those lessons to guide our future. The new moon in Aries is a wonderful time to set intentions and plant the seeds for all the things you want to call into your life.

The Virgo full moon's ambitious approach to just about everything eases us into this Aries new moon, which inspires action and movement beyond words written on a page. Think of Virgo as creating the spreadsheet of to-dos and Aries checking things off the list. Ride this wave of powerful energy that the full moon in Virgo provided into the new moon in Aries where it all begins. The first sign in the zodiac is the starting line for greatness, as long as you keep aggressive maneuvers at bay. It's the spark that lights Virgo's earth element on fire, purifying and transmuting energy.

Represented by the ram, Aries continues to climb mountains, even when it seems so steep, there's a risk of serious injury. It's as if Aries is oblivious to danger and confident enough to look fear straight in the eyes until it's blinding. So know when to fall back, reset, focus, and then proceed with intelligence. Dream big under the Aries new moon, knowing there's no mountain too high to climb and what lies on the other side may be everything you've ever wished for and more.

The good news is, we get a double dose of the Aries new moon in March and April. So get ready to really plant, nourish, and harvest your garden of endless dreams.

When Is the 2023 New Moon in Aries?

March's new moon in Aries peaks on March 21 at 1:22 p.m. ET. You won't see it in the sky like you would a full moon, but trust that the energy is just as powerful. There is true magic that lies within the darkness.

What Is the Meaning of the 2023 New Moon in Aries?

Whether you're on a journey of self-discovery, self-focus, or independence, the Aries new moon is the secret sauce you need. It's also a great time to wish for courage and authenticity if that's what you desire. Aries rules the self, so don't shy away from putting yourself upfront and centered on all the wonderful things you want to bring into this life. Because this fire sign also rules self-absorption, you can wish to disengage from lower vibrational energy like impatience, anger, and impulsive actions. As with everything, there's a balance that's needed to take full advantage of the new-moon vibes.

Since Aries rules new beginnings, you can wish for new trails you want to blaze and things you want to initiate. If you've already got these things in mind but been sluggish to get started, wish for the Aries high energy to take action. Sometimes that means getting up and moving. Incorporate a brisk walk into your day to charge your battery or dance hard until you break a sweat. Then stand still and observe the movement of energy flowing throughout your body.

Let this new moon be a reminder that you are perfect in all your flaws, so embrace them. Aries rules our warrior nature, providing us with a platform to call in courage, boldness, strength, leadership, and vigilance.

Just like the ram climbing the steepest mountain, don't look down; keep a steady gaze ahead on your goal to destiny.

Spiritual-Bath Recipe For the New-Moon-in-Aries Baño


  • Sage and palo santo
  • Garnet or citrine crystals
  • Honeysuckle and/or thistle flowers
  • Black pepper, orange, jasmine, or geranium essential oils
  • Spearmint and/or rosemary herbs
  • Pink Himalayan salt
  • Pink, red, or white candle


  1. Spring cleaning is in order. So turn up the music, stack a messy bun atop your head, and get to it. Move furniture around if you want to. This shifts energy so nicely in your space that newness is inevitable. This is an excellent place to create your Aries new-moon baño.
  2. After you've cleaned your space, walk through with a stick of sage lit, allowing the smoke to gracefully fill the space. Follow that with some palo santo to seal in the beautiful energy the sage created.
  3. Next, fill your bathtub with warm water, and add two cups of pink Himalayan salt. Mix it in with your hands until it's dissolved. Pray, sing, and speak out your wishes as you do so.
  4. Add several splashes of Agua de Florida followed by drops of the essential oils you'd like to use. Breathe deeply, and allow the aromatherapy to soothe you.
  5. Grab a few good handfuls of herbs, and sprinkle them on top of the water before dipping your hand in to mix it all together.
  6. Cover the top of the water with flower petals to indulge fully in your natural goddess vibes.
  7. Light a candle, and place a crystal and a vase of flowers near it for a beautiful Aries new-moon altar.
  8. Soak for 20 to 40 minutes. Allow yourself to air dry if you can, or pat dry with a light-colored towel. Adorn your fresh skin with silk or a soft, smooth fabric.
  9. Sit and intentionally write down 10 wishes you'd like to see come to fruition over the next six months until the full moon in Aries on Sept. 29.
