Burst the Clouds! New Moon in Aquarius

When I see you sky as I kite
As high as I might
I can’t get that high
The how you move
The way you burst the clouds
It makes me want to try
~The Cure “High” Wish

On Monday, February 4, we had a New Moon in the sign of Aquarius which gives you the chance to burst the clouds.

With last month’s Solar Eclipse in Capricorn, we got serious about our goals. Now, with the Aquarius New Moon, we get to fly when it comes to their implementation. Achievement is accelerated with brilliant, out-of-the-box ideas; ascending and expanding in tandem with our feet on the ground will make shift happen! Gone are the days we have to suffer to achieve our ends: Success now comes from being inspired and KNOWING you are the author of your life and, if you dare, can make the dream come true.

All New Moons in Aquarius put the spotlight on hopes, dreams, wishes, ideals, and expectations. This is 11th House territory — the house of “Why not?” Why not have the vitality, happiness, peace of mind and unlimited abundance you want? Why not have the love of your life, the fortune, the amazing career, the house? If you can imagine it, it must exist somewhere; line up with it energetically, feeling like you already have it, and follow your excitement, taking inspired action on the way to your goals. This New Moon, give yourself the permission slip to have what you want, and know that you deserve it.

Aquarius New Moons also pertain to friends and community — your family of choice and your tribe. The feeling of sisterhood and brotherhood is cooler than romantic relationships, but provides the crowdsurfing-like energy to catapult you toward your goals. Don’t underestimate the power of collective energy! Find your friends and find your tribe to fuel your flight.

The Sun and Moon harmoniously sextile Jupiter, the planet of luck, this new moon. With your dreams in place, follow your excitement and impulses. Make sure to SHOW UP — i.e., go where you need to go and do what you need to do! Help God help you! There are ecstatic coincidences around the corner if you come with an open and light heart. Remember, all miracles are based on love, so stay in your appreciation and notice the abundance all around you. Be grounded (practical, reliable, trustworthy) while allowing yourself to fly.

To see which life area this new moon will affect, look to where 15 degrees of Aquarius appears in your astrological chart; likewise, read your sign and/or rising sign below. For a deeper look at your current astrological transits and what the upcoming months look like for you, check out my website and book a reading. I would love to show you what I see to help make your dreams come true.

ARIES: The Aquarius New Moon will transit your Eleventh House of Hopes, Dreams, Wishes and Friends! Over the next two weeks, take time to consider your greatest hopes, dreams, wishes and ideals. Remember, the 11th House is the house of “why not?” Why not achieve your lofty aims? It’s time to look at the limitless sky and give yourself the freedom to claim it as yours. Since we can’t imagine non-existence, anything you can imagine must exist somewhere, right?! So give yourself permission to go after your big dreams. Help along the way will be your friends or groups of like-minded people also inspired about life and all it has to offer. Put yourself out there and find people with whom you can relate. Spend time with friends you can support and can support you. Once you tap into your DESERVABILITY and WORTHINESS that allow you to believe your greatest hopes, dreams and wishes are possible, prove to the universe your belief by COMMITTING to actionable steps to make them happen. Even if a specific strategy doesn’t yield the results you desire, remember that the energy you put forth doesn’t just evaporate — it’s put toward your end-game in a way unbeknownst to you. Do everything you can to stay clear this month, keeping up with diet, exercise, and rest so the power of universe can easily run through you to help you manifest your miracles. All miracles are based on love, so love, love, love, love — love everyone and everything. Love as much as possible.

TAURUS: The Aquarius New Moon will transit your Tenth House of Career! Over the past month’s eclipses, you may have experienced some shifts in consciousness. Remember that new awareness gives you the wherewithal to bring you further than you would have gone before. Use this New Moon to glean more understanding about how you want to be perceived by your public and what you want to achieve professionally. You’re in an advantageous position to make shift happen, so plant seeds and take action over the next two weeks (the sooner, the better). Whether you want to rise in the ranks in the career you have now, or embark on an exciting new trajectory, this is the month to do it! As a Taurus, you can be extremely practical, but being imaginative, too, is key to how far you can go. Perceive in your mind the end result of what you desire, conjure up its feelings and pretend that it’s already happened; then take inspired action as if you’re just “rewinding” to the beginning of the movie. Prove you believe that it’s going to happen by the actionable steps you take. Belief combined with practical action based on your belief is all you need to do to reach the top.

GEMINI: The Aquarius New Moon will transit your Ninth House of Expansion. This is the time to allow your spirit to soar across the universe! You are likely to have “itchy feet” now, craving something fresh, new and unfamiliar for a reboot. During this time, you’ll want to identity with life itself — perhaps by being larger than it! One way to do this is to publish, broadcast or somehow share your perspective with the world, so you can experience your presence everywhere. With the world having access to you, by reading your work or hearing you speak, for instance, you experience yourself as you really are — truly infinite. Another way you can use this transit is to literally go across the world, by planning a trip to a far-off place that’s unfamiliar. Or you can experience expansion by broadening your horizons right where you are: reading new literature or experiencing new art can transport you to a different world, just as learning philosophy and developing your spirituality can widen your perspective. Consider what you want to experience this month, as well as how you’d like the world to experience you. Gift yourself a sense of limitlessness now, and you’ll go far and wide.

CANCER: The New Moon in Aquarius will transit your Eighth House of Rebirth. The only constant in the universe is change; change, therefore, is stability, and that’s what this transit for you is about this month. Do you want a brand new life? Or just some minor changes to the one you have now? The point of this transit is empowerment through transformation. Often, such a transit relates to boundaries: which ones will you set and which ones will you dissolve? Make the decision based on how you feel: if your resources combined with someone or something else empowers you, move in a little closer; if your joint resources with someone or something else disempowers you, draw some lines in the sand. Empowerment is the name of your game this month and key to that now is letting go of what you have to have more. What might you release to make room for your heart’s deepest fulfillment? As you seek this answer, stay in your gratitude, stay in flow, be flexible and gentle with yourself. Realize the unfamiliar could be better than the familiar. Everything and anything can be yours so long as there’s enough room for you to let it in. Keep top of mind that love is letting go of fear.

LEO: The New Moon in Aquarius will transit your Seventh House of Partnerships. This month, you’ll have a great opportunity to strengthen the partnerships you’re in, or find some new ones that will help make you stronger. Whether you want empowering personal or professional partners now, the universe is queued up to deliver, waiting for you to be ready. Life may have been shaken up a little last month with the eclipses; now you’re given the green light to get things in order in a much stronger way: Have those important talks that will allow your relationships to flourish; mend fences if you feel a partnership is salvageable and worth another go. If you want to attract into your life personal and professional partners who really get you, make a list of all the qualities you want, and start your search! Further, some great strides can be made with this transit if you spend some time in the shoes of others in your life: Consider what they need and how you can help. Focusing on the energy you’re flowing into your relationships is the best way to leverage this New Moon, especially over the next two weeks.

VIRGO: The New Moon in Aquarius will transit your Sixth House of Lifestyle. Welcome to “This Is Your Life,” Virgo! This transit is typically about “health” and “work” — what we do day in and day out. With the New Moon transiting this area of your chart, you’re in the perfect position to really improve your daily goings-on. If it’s a new job you think would make life easier, consider what that looks like and take action over the next two weeks. If your current job could use some changes, implementing those now is also likely to be successful. Additionally, you may want to direct your attention to how you feel physically, using the new moon’s energy for more vitality and better health. This transit is ideal for starting a new exercise routine and/or diet so you feel as perfect as possible. Essentially, you can use this month to get your life running like a well-oiled machine. Figure out the combination of things that would make you well and happy: What work would you do, how would your body feel, what recreational activities would restore your spirit on regular basis? With the right balance of things in place, you’ll find everything supports everything else. A game-night with friends on Wednesday, for instance, can lead to a magnificent Thursday at work; a great morning workout can give you the mental sharpness you need for a presentation, etc. Everything is all connected, so start implementing into your day-to-day those things that make your heart happy to gain the most from this New Moon.

LIBRA: The New Moon in Aquarius will transit your Fifth House of Pleasure! This life area encapsulates so much of what you really love: romance, good times, and creative endeavors. Over the next few weeks, you’ll likely feel really creative, ready to laugh and have fun. What will make your heart happy, Libra? The energetic field around your heart is way more powerful than the brain, so the more you make your heart feel good, the more energy you’ll have to create your best life. Once you have an idea of what lights you up, go out there and experience it full tilt! Now that eclipse season is over, these two weeks are perfect for manifesting love, romance, good times, and whatever else brings a smile across your face. During this transit, you’ll get a chance to really get in touch with your inner child. By embodying the kid within, you’ll see how creative you can be in every life area: exercise and diet, achieving more wealth, having more fun in your relationships — the list goes on and on. By focusing on what makes you happy, you’ll be more alive and experience life more fully. Really use the next two weeks to discover what makes your heart happy and gets your lights on.

SCORPIO: The New Moon in Aquarius will transit your Fourth House of Emotional Security. Now’s the time to find your “happy place” inside yourself. Though this transit can pertain to your home and family, your true “home” you take around with you wherever you go. Thus, take some time to “nest and rest” over the next two weeks, really nurturing yourself. Once you feel good, consider what might make you feel even more comfortable: Is it a new home or simply a new comforter and pillows? Is it deeper relations with your friends and family, or do you want to deep dive into a relationship? Every relationship you have is reminiscent of the relationship you have with yourself, so start there! Soothe yourself and find your inner peace, and everything else will fall into place. Further, when it comes to “security,” a relevant topic during this transit, realize that insecure feelings are about the fear of collapse. You can’t get true security from money or a relationship, for instance, as there are plenty of rich and partnered people who are insecure. High energy is what brings security, for when you have high energy, it’s a far cry from the vibration of collapse. Thus, do whatever you can to rest, exercise and eat right so you can express your highest energy. Having vitality will help you feel more emotionally secure, which is what you’ll want to get out of this transit.

SAGITTARIUS: The New Moon in Aquarius will transit your Third House of Communication. Now that eclipse season is over, you have the ability to find your groove and let the good times roll! This should be an especially busy month for you, with work stuff to do and a full social calendar. Though it may be tempting to say “yes” to everything, be discriminating to make the best use of your time: If you sense attending an event is a bad idea, for instance, trust yourself, as you’ll want to make sure that all the stuff you do makes you happier! The same for work stuff: Decide what deserves your time and attention and what does not. Communications can also be made more efficient during this time: Be clear with what you say and make sure people are clear with you; since this period is so communication heavy, it wouldn’t hurt to write follow-up emails to ensure you and colleagues are on the same page. This transit is an opportunity to really strengthen your communication skills and build a better rapport with others. Remember, though, the most important person you communicate with is yourself, so make sure you’re focusing on how spectacular you are and how abundant life is! Your self-talk should be empowering, as the way you talk to yourself is what the universe hears and responds to. Make your inner voice your most supportive, inspiring friend ever, and you’ll experience more abundance ahead.

CAPRICORN: The New Moon in Aquarius will transit your Second House of Self-Worth and Finance. This is the perfect transit to create more abundance in your life. Abundance is a flow. To achieve physical evidence of it (i.e., prosperity), keep your energy flowing. You Capricorns have a leg up when it comes to creating wealth: You’re practical, strategic, hard working and not easily deterred! But there’s another thing you can use to increase your financial flow: Your voice! The throat is your center of self-worth, which relates to self-expression and correlates with your money-making potential. By expressing yourself more fully, you’ll increase the power of your outflow which results in more inflow. Sometimes we have throat chakra/financial blocks because we’re not speaking up about something. Even if you can’t, for instance, tell your boss to take a hike, you could write him/her a letter that you don’t send, just to release the energy there. Further, even in the bible it says that those who have, more will be given: like attracts like and abundance begets abundance, so be vigilant about perceiving all the abundance around you— oxygen, the food you eat, the people you know, the warmth of the sun, the sustenance of water, etc. In affirming that what you have is abundant, you negate the possibility of lack. Live fully and abundantly now, and you’ll be aligned with vitality and a surplus of money which you’ll very much like!

AQUARIUS: This is a very powerful New Moon for you, as it transits your First House of Identity. Everything you want in the world starts with the subconscious belief that you already have it. Thus, changing your self-construct this new moon is the name of the game. When you “attract” more love, money, vitality, etc., you’re really just embodying and expressing those aspects within yourself already. And this is the gift you’ve been given this New Moon: the ability to tap into who you want to be to change your life. Your sign represents the power of fixed, consistent thought, so think thoughts that put you in the state of having what you desire. If you want more love, focus on how loved you are already; if you want more money, focus on the ways you are already rich. If you stray from such empowering thoughts, redirect your focus. Be disciplined. Rule your mind, don’t let it rule you. Since the First House rules not only your perception but your physical body, take measures to feel better physically over the next two weeks. Use workout time to acclimate your cells to the new you. Treat yourself to new clothes or a new look, styling yourself to “look the part” of the new you you’re wanting to play. Motion creates the self, so as you start to embody Version 2.0 of you, act like it! Take action from this state of new awareness — live the dream!

PISCES: The Aquarius New Moon will transit your Twelfth House of the Subconscious. This is an important transit for you, Pisces, as you gear up for your next birthday year! Since in life we get what we subconsciously believe we are, this is the perfect time to empower your inner dialogue. That’s what the universe hears — your inner conversations with yourself. Over the next two weeks, take time to meditate, rest, and turn inward. Dial into how you want your life to be. Tap into the feelings you want to experience. Use your imagination to visualize having what you want…perfect health, a surplus of money, an amazing mate, etc. The subconscious can’t differentiate between what’s being imagined and what’s actually happening, and when there’s a discrepancy between the two, the subconscious cannot rest until it makes them coincide. While moving through life from that space of fulfillment, take inspired, actionable steps toward the goal. You’re magical, Pisces, and can tap into the divine (and your subconscious) like no other, so try it: Shortcut your manifestations by convincing yourself that what you want has already happened. Give yourself the relief you desire — surrender to the dream and the dream will surrender to you.
