Correct Beginnings

Correct Beginnings

Under the Aries New Moon, we can reflect on the magic of new beginnings. But what about correct beginnings?  

– by Tiffany Harelik

Sometimes we find ourselves in a bad sequence of events. Consciously, or unconsciously—we repeat patterns and cycles with the same people, with different people, in the same place, in different places—no matter where we go, there we are. We work on core healing, go through therapy, talk it out, come to new understandings—and still find ourselves stepping in the same hole. Is it possible, we just haven’t mastered the mechanics of new beginnings? Here are some ideas to help you work your New Moon—and experiment with New Beginning Magic.

Step One: Aura Mechanics

The first step in creating something new, is to understand your aura type in your *Human Design bodygraph. This is the tool that tells you how to make decisions, interact with others, and move through the world. Did you know that most of the aura types are not designed to initiate? 

The strategies of the four main aura types (full article)

  • Generators & Manifesting Generators: are here to know themselves and wait to respond to what life brings, so they get the satisfaction of using their life force for what is correct for them.
  • Projectors are here to know the other and learn to wait for the invitation to share what they see, so they feel the success of guiding those who are correct for them.
  • Manifestors are here to know their impact on others with their strong initiating power. They are here to correctly initiate by informing others, and to feel peace by having the correct impact on others.
  • Reflectors are here to wait a lunar cycle in order to know their environment, to sample different activations and reflect back to others what is there, bringing surprise to their life. They are not here to work like a Generator, as this leads to disappointment.


Wait, what? I’m not supposed to initiate unless I’m a manifestor? How can I start new things ‘correctly’? Well, it’s nuanced, friends. Experimenting with Human Design helps us shift into ‘passenger consciousness.’ Instead of being the driver, we become the passenger here to enjoy seeing what life brings to us. This doesn’t mean we can’t create, collaborate, or bring new things into the world. Rather, it allows us an opportunity to have correct beginnings. Do you want to experiment with your aura type to see how things unfold with a correct beginning versus other beginnings you’ve tried in the past?

Step Two: Identify Best Astrological Timing. 

Astrology enthusiasts know the best time to launch a product, create something new, or start a new routine is centered around the dark skies of a New Moon. What sign that New Moon is in can offer insight and extra layers to what parachutes out of the sheets when they billow down on the bed. For example, Aries New Moon themes include things ruled by Aries: action, energy, passion, war, blood, leadership, etc. New Moon Astrology by Jan Spiller is the best book in the market for understanding New Moon magic, by each sign. In this book, Spiller explains the best time to work with New Moon magic is on the moment of the New Moon and up to eight hours after (not before). 

In addition to New Moons, astrologers using a horary chart can help identify advice based on the time the question was asked. We can look at astrocartography to understand optimal locations to initiate projects, connect with particular communities, schedule tours, build a home, etc. And we can give new life to relationships or projects by giving them a new birth chart all together. Here are twelve astrology life hacks you might love.

Do you want to experiment with using the strategy and authority of your aura type to help determine if astrology and the akashic records are a good fit?

“You were born wise, with the ability to make correct decisions for your life. All of life is about decisions, both large and tiny. Inner Authority helps us navigate those decisions as our true self. Spoiler alert: the logical thoughts, the pros and cons lists, the this-and-that of the Mind, while very helpful and amazing, are no longer equipped to make decisions to navigate our life correctly. Authority in HD is beyond the Mind; it’s a deeper intelligence within us that shows us what decisions are correct. This is unique for each person. When you start practicing your specific Strategy and Authority, you align with your unique geometry. Your uniqueness and purpose in this life are all expressed through you by you being your true self, and things start to naturally and gracefully fall into place.”
-Leisha Barnette

The Authorities are: Emotional/ Solar Plexus, Sacral, Spleen, Ego Manifested, Self-Projected, Ego Projected, Sounding Board, and Lunar. Want to book a session to learn more about your internal decision making process that helps you find those correct new beginnings?

Step Three: Check the Records.

The Akashic Records already know. Consulting the records through a professional guide can help you identify the magic of new beginnings, and the season of new beginnings.

Your energy has always existed since the beginning of time. We all experience the impact of that epically long history without a clear roadmap of how to navigate it all. Enter the Akashic Records! The Akashic Records serve as a metaphysical library that archives all the information you will ever need about your soul’s history. I like to think of them as an external hard drive that lives in another dimension, waiting for you to plug in.”
