Wow it’s a big lunar month with both Chiron and Uranus changing signs this month, something that they only do every 7 years or so!!! 

Thanks to everyone who joined me online for my webinar on The Astrology of 2019, it was fun!   If you missed it and you’d like to see it, the recording is now available on my website.

I’m really excited to be starting my 2019 Astrology courses this week!  There’s still time to jump on if you’d like to join us, or if you can’t make classes, you can study ONLINE through my Stargazer Astrology Academy on the teachable platform, which is a great user-friendly learning platform.


The New Moon in Aquarius is an opportunity to begin a new cycle in authenticity.  To what extent are you really being true to yourself?  Do you feel free to be true to yourself?  Aquarius is a sign associated with freedom, authenticity, and equality at both the individual and collective level.  It is strongly non-conformist, needing to be different and unique, free of society’s expectations, a natural rebel (I can hear all the Aquarians cheering!!!)  It is also focused on social responsibility, connection at the level of mass consciousness and global humanitarian concerns.

Aquarius is an air sign, loving to debate ideas, the more original, inventive and zany the better.  Aquarians are very sociable and tend to be known as the party animals of the zodiac!

The New Moon falls on Tues 5 Feb, exact at 7.04am Queensland time (AEST) which means it will fall on Mon 4 Feb in Europe and the Americas.  Remember to set your New Moon intentions within 24 hours of the New Moon.

If your birthday is close to this date (within a day either side), this is the beginning of an important new cycle in your life in terms of your sense of identity and your purpose in the world.

Wherever you have 15 degrees of Aquarius in your birth chart indicates the area of life that will be most affected by this New Moon – for example, if this New Moon falls in your 10th house, this signifies the beginning of a new cycle in your career or professional life.

This New Moon also brings in the Chinese New Year.  Like many traditional cultures, the Chinese New Year is based on the lunar calendar, and this New Moon marks the beginning of the Chinese Lunar Year of the Earth Pig.

Happy Chinese New Year!!

With love
