New Moon in Aquarius | Time to start dreaming


This New Moon invites us to start dreaming.  Aquarius is the visionary of the zodiac, capable of imagining a better, brighter future for us all.  We each carry this Aquarian energy in some part of our lives depending on where Aquarius falls in your chart.  Now is a perfect time to ask yourself “Is there some part of my life I really want to be doing differently?  Is there some part of my life where I want to try something totally new?” 

In a Great Sextile to Jupiter in Sagittarius and Uranus/Mars conjunct in Aries, this moon carries the energies of Fire and Air.  It is full of opportunity, potential, fuel for growth.  Jupiter in Sadge encourages us to express, expand and explore our own Truths (because believe it or not, truth can be subjective!)  How we live our truths can be as unique as our fingerprints - and this lunation is providing us with a chance to develop our personal life philosophies and actually LIVE by them, so that we can move into a place of more authenticity which is what Aquarius energy is all about.

Uranus and Mars conjunct in Aries can feel like an earthquake in many ways.  Uranus is the disruptor, the wake-up/shake-up energy of the zodiac - and when paired with headstrong, fiery Mars then prepare for some big changes!  In order to move towards the life we dream for ourselves, we must always be looking at what needs to be recalibrate as we set a new course in uncharted waters.  Things are up for review, recalibration, reconfiguration - especially in the realm of independence, interdependence and co-dependence.  Are we claiming autonomy over our own destiny?  Are our sacred boundaries healthy and in tact? Are there people, places or things that are dragging us down rather than lifting us up?  In a tense aspect to a Saturn/Pluto conjunction in Capricorn, we can expect old ways of being and old paradigms to continue to fall away.  Some aspect of our lives is being restructured.  Where anything is out of balance, Mars and Uranus will be sure to let you know.  Pay attention to their lessons.  

As the first sign of the zodiac, Aries is all about new beginnings and these can often be disguised as difficult endings.  In its element in its own sign, Mars has a huge amount of energy at its disposal here.  Positively aspecting the New Moon and Jupiter, there is a natural flow to what happens this month IF we are willing to commit to the process.  Remain present to our experience.  Create space for surrender and allow the Universe to take the reins for a while.  This isn’t about having everything figured out (Full Moon in Virgo in a couple of weeks will help us here!) - this Moon is the first step on an unfolding path, we learn as we go.  The Moon asks us to set out with an open heart and a spirit for adventure.

New Moon Journalling

☾ Write down a list of all the people, places and things that make you feel alive

☾ What ‘truths’ are you expanding into/exploring/discovering/sharing?

☾ What is your relationship to your independence/autonomy?

☾ Is there a part of your life where you are or you want to set out in a new direction? If you are - how does it feel? If you aren’t - how does that feel?

☾ Write down your vision for your life. And for the world - be brave!

☾ If the vision is the tree and this New Moon we are planting that seed - what actions could you nourish the seed with in the coming days/weeks/months/years?
