New Moon January 2015

New Moon in Aquarius

New Moon Aquarius

The Aquarius New Moon occurs on Tuesday, January 20, at 7:13 am. Aquarius is an airy sign so this New Moon could be very mental. Mercury has already slowed for its turn on Wednesday morning, retrograde, until February 12th. Mercury is also in Aquarius.

The question will be how we can shift into mental energy in a creative way without utter chaos. Fortunately, the New Moon is supported by Saturn on Tuesday, and Saturn is very grounding.

We start the month in a mental frenzy that needs to be controlled by pulling in the grounding energy of Saturn. Saturn offers us the ability for patience, planning, buckling down. This is a time for reflection on our goals, a time to remember that one step at a time is the only way we make it to the destination.

All of us are letting go of what isn’t working for us. When our souls can no longer be rejuvenated by a thing, it’s time to step forward – often into the unknown. Often we must detach from a situation in order to see objectively – Aquarius gives us this objectivity.

What is it that aligns you with your inner nature? How fearless must we be in order to move forward? How aware must we be in order to create the future in line with natural law? Aquarius is a humanitarian sign. How can I flow into humanity and align with my true and highest calling?

Mercury gives us the ability to think and communicate logically. With Mercury involved with this New Moon we all need to slow w.a.y down. It’s interesting that with the New Year we all want to catapult forward, and then the universe aligns with retrograde Mercury right off the bat.

We’re planning a new future, on a grand scale. We must slow down and use our ability to plan and reflect. We need patience and objectivity. And all of this can be found through surrender.


Please, if you like, I invite you to write down affirmations during the first 48 hours after the new moon. GUIDELINES for working with the New Moon energy are here.
