It’s officially a New Moon in Aquarius on January 30, 2014 at 4:38 p.m. EST.
This is the second New Moon we've had this month. The last one was on January 1st.
Supermoon: This New Moon is considered a supermoon, meaning it's a bit closer to the earth so usually appears larger in the sky. However, since this is a New Moon, and thus on the same side of the Earth as the Sun (both in Aquarius), you'll have difficulty seeing it. Of course, supermoon's are most noticeable during a bright Full Moon. Astrologically though, consider that since this New Moon is closer, it will be extra potent.
This New Moon reminds us to bring new-found joy into the future.
What do you think the future of the world holds?
What if more of those ideas you have actually became reality? What would your life look like?
So many ideas only remain in the realm of ideas. Many people think about and talk about their ideas but don’t follow through. A lot of people are afraid of their own success and afraid of failure while others simply don’t know how to get from point a to point b.
Now we get a chance to let go of the thoughts that are holding us back to make room for a freer mind. Merging reality with fiction opens your mind to new vistas unleashing greater creativity.
Mercury’s winged helmet and feet touch embrace the droplets of rain, the mist of the fog and the dip of his toes in the waters of Pisces on the 31st. On February 6th Mercury in Pisces begins his retrograde phase, appearing to go backwards in the cosmic sky and returns to the embrace of Aquarius on February 12th. He rises high out of the waters and returns to the airy sky. Watch for patterns in the clouds.
The higher, cosmic association with the waters is the abyss, the unknown void where all light comes from. Our minds reach into the mysteries and the realm of dreams and then return back again to bring those thoughts and ideas back into our world. Through this dance we get in touch with the hopes and dreams we have for ourselves and for our future as we reconsider and rethink what was and what will be. We can dream big, go inside our minds and then, we can slowly but surely refine our approach.
When you are coming from a creative place that feels stable and secure in yourself, free of doubts and full of hope, you are better able to follow through instead of procrastinating. Honor and connect to your gifts.
So, what if more of those dreams of yours actually became reality? What would your life become? What is it you’ve been wanting to do?
Now is a great time to hone in on developing your internal wisdom and your bright ideas and fine tune them. You may be surprised by the insights revealed now. It is certainly a great time for brainstorming. This is a time to daydream, to collect your ideas, and come up with new ideas.
Whatever you’ve been thinking about over the past week will certainly be revisited over the next couple of weeks so enjoy the thinking process and write down your ideas before they dissipate and are forgotten.
Aquarius is very much a big picture, broad thinker. What if the collective consciousness became reality? What would the world look like?
If only a small percent of what we think about actually becomes reality because we don’t bring those ideas into the world, what are we missing out on?
Not only does this New Moon emphasize the power of Mercury, but with Venus finishing off her retrograde phase also on January 31, snuggling close to Pluto in Capricorn, it’s a major turning point for all of us in major areas of life concerning material wealth, career and love.
As the power of this New Moon in Aquarius starts to grow new possibilities in our lives so we can have a brighter future, we get to take the gift of Pluto and Venus with us. We get to assert that we will do what we love and we will do it because we know it will transform our lives for the better. We can achieve our hopes and dreams and this is the perfect time to start. We will also realize that we deserve to have and to be who we desire to be.
This is a great time for writers, poets and artists to go deep into their work, knowing that the creative realm is worth your time and can bring great value into your life and the world. Dreams will be visually stunning and deep with metaphors, so write and rewrite as you develop your vision. Remember to allow yourself to feel free mentally, emotionally and spiritually.
Those of you interested in divination could find yourself drawn to some light learning of tarot, astrology, numerology and runes. Reading sci-fi, technological and mythical books will change your perceptions of the potential of humanity. Have fun with light reading and learning. Explore and go beyond your usual train of thought.
Everyone will do well to consider the height of their dreams merged with reality and tap into the higher consciousness of the third eye and crown chakras. Meditation with a focus on the breath while sitting by a trickling water fountain is the perfect space to tune into the current astrological climate.
Venus and Pluto in Capricorn connect with Jupiter in Cancer as well now signifying the release of what was and to embrace a life that is transforming for your higher good. Don’t place too much emphasis on expectations. Remember that the universe has surprises and bigger plans than you have on your own. Trust that it has your back. Focus on feeling whole in all that you put yourself into and the rewards will arise. You will likely find that you feel drawn to philosophies and worldviews that open your heart which in turn makes you feel more grounded and connected to the world.
It really is a time to feel inspired and connected to your higher self deep within. It’s a time to certainly expect surprises as Uranus, the ruler of Aquarius, is connecting with this New Moon. Enjoy what the surprises have to offer and the energy they give you. They are leading you towards your destiny. To make the most of this New Moon you will have to put in the effort to move forward by opening yourself up to possibilities and not being afraid to grow. Dip your toes in the water, and fly high in the sky.
Let go of the fears that hold you back and embrace a world that you can help create and infuse with your hopes and dreams for the future.
