On Friday 9th February at 22:59 in the UK and Saturday 10th February at 09:59 in Melbourne, Australia we have a New Moon in the air sign of Aquarius. In Chinese astrology this also marks the start of the Lunar New Year, the year of the dragon, which is considered a lucky year, full of new found confidence, purpose and success! So, firstly, wishing you all a wonderful, successful, purpose filled and very Happy Lunar New Year!
FREEDOM - SELF-EXPRESSION - SHINE BRIGHT - HEALING
This New Moon wants you to set yourself free! It wants you to express yourself authentically and be true to who you are. It wants you to shine your light bright for all to see, feel and heal from. It wants you to release yourself from old beliefs, old versions of yourself and old ways of being, that aren't working for you anymore. It wants you to pay attention to your emotions, to where you're being guided, to the little niggles within you, it wants you to trust, to trust in the process and to trust in yourself. It wants you to know your worth, to not settle for anything less than you deserve and most importantly it wants you to love yourself, wholly and truly. Because you are one incredible human, with so much to offer and the world absolutely needs you to shine bright!
ACTIVE ASTROLOGY UNDER THIS NEW MOON
PLUTO - PLANET OF DEATH, REBIRTH & TRANSFORMATION
Pluto has a strong energy around this New Moon, having just started its new 20 year cycle in the sign of Aquarius, it's encouraging you to get deep, to release what's no longer working, to make and embrace changes and to get clear on what you choose for your life over the next few decades, both globally and personally.
What do you want for your life?
URANUS - PLANET OF UPHEAVAL & CHANGE (RULES OVER AQUARIUS)
Uranus is also very active under this New Moon, which may cause some instability and things to be shaken up, especially where change needs to be made. This could be both personally and/or globally. Uranus may also have you feeling inspired to make your own changes, you may feel a deep push towards greater freedom and self-expression. Where possible, release control and go with the flow, trust in the process and the perfect timing of your life.
What's no longer working in your life? Where does change need to be made? Where can you release control and surrender to the flow?
CHIRON & THE NORTH NODE - DEEP HEALING
Chiron and the North Node are also very active under this New Moon, getting closer and closer together, where they will officially conjunct just a few days after the New Moon on 11th February. This signals a deep healing, both personally and globally. Pay attention to what's surfacing for you, what old wounds are coming up, where are you being triggered, where do you feel trapped, suffocated? It's in diving into these deeper wounds, emotions, feelings that we often have the deepest healing and through healing ourselves we then have the ability to help, teach and inspire others to heal!
What's surfacing for you? Can you give yourself space to feel your emotions and get curious about where they may be guiding you?
