New Moon in Aquarius 2023

We have a New Moon on January 21st, at 12:53 PM PST. The Sun and Moon share 1 degree Aquarius 33 minutes. It's a new opportunity to begin something fresh in our life, be it a journey to wellbeing or a new study. Aquarius, the Water Bearer of the zodiac, is a Fixed Air Sign of high humidity. This means it lands in the second month of Winter (fixed), and is a sign of high intellect with a heart:) Air.

Aquarius is the sign of the professor, one who learns and loves to share what they know. It is a caring sign, a great humanitarian energy, and lands during a period where we need this most. It is ruled by the planet Uranus, the activator as planets go. It is such a restless energy that it seeks our rigidity and frustrated energy and shakes it out of its complacency. Without Uranus rattling our cage now and then we would settle into destructive and limiting patterns. This influence brings about a unique way of seeing life, and an eccentricity that allows one to push past the barriers of normalcy.

This New Moon encourages us to set aside time to contemplate, consider and review what we think we know. We can open our minds more easily now and see things more clearly. Aquarius energy is detached, objective and impersonal, allowing us to study a situation rather than get lost in it. Freedom is the most important thing to an Aquarian, and they care about friends and others as much as family. Jealousy and possessiveness have no place here.

Under this influence the goals we set, we shall get when the Moon is Full in Aquarius on August 1st. That is, if we do what it takes to manifest our goal. It could be as simple as, “I wish to open my mind to accept more wisdom without judgment”, to as big as, “I surrender to the knowing I am here to do ____, and I am beginning my serious investigation of what that will take.” When we create a plan, using the energy that supports a certain part of life, we work with the cycles and they work for us! Intention is the name of the game here. So when creating with this New Moon, let it include the Aquarian effect; the intellect, compassion, friendship, humanitarian acts, philosophy, groups/organizations. It is a time for equality for all through humanitarian efforts. To see the world as our family and work toward its highest manifestation.

On this occasion the Sun and Moon are sextile Jupiter at 4 degrees Aries. This blend brings optimism, tolerance, generosity from the heart. We can approach issues with wider eyes, and keep our emotions clearly supporting the truth. A little give and take. But at the same time, the Sun and Moon are conjunct Pluto stationed at 28 degrees Capricorn. This combo can dredge up compelling feelings and desires that need to be addressed. Your emotions are very intense, but often hidden with this conjunction. Like a volcano, one minute you seem quite peaceful and the next you are exploding with great force and unexpected fury. Sometimes this explosive energy can relieve a lot of pressure, if it’s handled right.

This is a very high minded New Moon, she wants you free from limitation and fear. Clear the cobwebs in your emotions now and set an elevated plan that you can follow through with. Not like those “New Year's Resolutions” we’ve all tried, but a true and honest promise to yourself. Say to yourself, if I set it, I get it!
