New Moon in Aquarius 2020 – Happy Chinese New Year!

Aquarius the water-carrier

New Moon in Aquarius   Sat 25 Jan 2020, exact at 7.41am Queensland time (AEST) at 4 degrees Aquarius (the previous day in Europe & the Americas)

Full Moon in Leo   Sun 9 Feb 2020, exact at 5.33pm Queensland time (AEST) at 20 degrees Leo


Skywatching   Venus can be seen as the Evening Star twinkling in the western sky after sunset.  If you have a clear view of the western horizon, you’ll also be able to see Mercury low in the western sky just after sunset, especially from the beginning of Feb for a few weeks.  Mars is a reddish Morning Star in the east before sunrise, quite high now, with Jupiter and Saturn below Mars.


The New Moon in Aquarius on Sat 25 Jan 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 is exact at 7.04am Queensland time (AEST) which means it will fall the previous day 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 4 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 Metal Rat.
