Aquarius New Moon
Aquarius is the star sign of the year and it’s now that Aquarius’ planetary energy peaks. The key date is the New Moon on the 11th, a symbol of new beginnings.
Aquarius is your communication sector, ruling the spoken and written word and linked to study and teaching. You may be considering a new course of study or want to train as a teacher and pass on your wisdom. This is a strong transit for writing and becoming a voice of authority.
For some of you, this could coincide with taking on a more significant role in your community, your neighbourhood. Aquarius rules siblings and close relatives.
Plus, your planet Jupiter is active during the New Moon phase. It teams up with Venus on the 11th and Mercury on the 14th. Both connections feel social for you and when you make the right moves, good fortune follows.
There could be good reason to celebrate during this month’s New Moon. Or, you receive the information you’ve been waiting for. Alternatively, you could go viral on social media or become an overnight internet sensation.
The real green light takes place a while later. This is because communication planet Mercury is retrograde in Aquarius for the first three weeks of February.
At least, Mercury, the planet of the mind, works better in a fellow air sign. You might be overly busy with commitments but you’re learning to be more structured and organised.
That’s not to say that things will always work out the way you want them to but it is a good month to prioritise list-making and learn to manage your time well.
Mercury’s change of direction comes on the 21st. For you, this is a positive date to chase up correspondence or get back in touch with someone who’s gone quiet on you. Reopen the lines of communication once Mercury’s back up to speed. You can make decisions with confidence after this date.
Also this month, action planet Mars is busy in Taurus and your work and health sector – another nod towards February being a hectic month. Learning to juggle a busy schedule is key.
There will be times when less is more and too much stress or overwhelm could quickly lead to arguments. Try not to flare up on the 1st, 10th or 19th when Mars is unusually active.
The Saturn-Uranus clash on the 17th flags up a similar theme. Saturn holds you back and halts you in your tracks whereas Uranus wants and craves freedom.
You could find yourself feeling frustrated with what’s happening at work or within society in general. It will be hard this month not to speak up.
There’s a gentler flow after the 18th when the Sun enters Pisces. The ebb and flow of family life, your legacy, your connection to the past will draw you in.
The Full Moon on the 27th highlights these key issues and the foundations of your horoscope. This is when the Sun in Pisces and your home and family sector opposes the Moon in Virgo and your career and vocation sector.
During this Full Moon, you may feel more emotional as your sentiments are stirred. It’s a good date for making decisions related to your work and family. You might find your priorities shifting.
Or, perhaps external circumstances mean that you need to rethink your working life and your commitment to loved ones.
