With today’s New Moon in airy Aquarius...we’re supported in zooming out + looking at the big picture of our lives with healthy Aquarian detachment. When we're lost in our emotional landscape, we easily lose touch with our true intentions + this month, we’re supported in seeing things from a clear, elevated perspective. We’re given further reprieve from our emotions with no Full Moon at all in the month of February (this only happens a few times every century) + our focus is on welcoming the start of a fresh cycle. Allowing us to build, plan + manifest with exceptional clarity. This New Moon is also a partial solar eclipse, meaning:
“a turbocharged New Moon. Generally, New Moon rituals are perfect for planting new seeds and starting afresh. We are essentially working on the blank canvas of the dark moon where our ideas can gestate in the new moon soil. But with an Eclipse, the Moon comes between the Sun and the Earth. Therefore the lunar interrupts the flow of energy. It breaks our habitual behavior and gives us a kind of cosmic reboot.
“The Moon blots out masculine/left brain energy for a while, so the feminine/right brain is flooded with instinctual and intuitive energy. This makes the unconscious, conscious, like when you become aware that you are dreaming. During an eclipse, like the lucid dream, we get that same sudden feeling of hyperawareness. We could do anything!” (Marina Macario, Darkstar Astrology)
With the moon on the opposite side of the sky as the August 2017 total eclipse - we can expect issues + matters from then to come back for completion or the next phase of addressing.
With love + light,
