The New Moon in Aquarius falls on Sat 10 Feb at 8.59am AEST.  This Aquarian New Moon marks the Chinese New Year.  Like many traditional cultures, the Chinese use a lunar calendar and this will be the Year of the Wood Dragon.

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.

Uranus, the ruler of Aquarius, is making a challenging aspect to this New Moon, increasing the Uranian energy, challenging you to be authentic and to break free of any restrictions – anything that’s holding you back – and be really true to yourself.  Freedom is the battle cry right now!

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 8.59am Queensland time (AEST) at 20 degrees of Aquarius.

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 20 degrees of Aquarius in your birth chart, this 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.

Remember to set your New Moon intentions within 24 hours of the New Moon.
