This is the first official New Moon of the New Year and can bring about some intense emotions and dynamic mood swings.
This New Moon is square Uranus which can cause some big changes, unpredictable energy, and intense moods.
This New Moon is in Aquarius and Capricorn depending on your location and time zone. Aquarius gives you an imaginative outlook and Capricorn can help you focus that into something tangible!
The moon turns to new on the 24th of January in the sign of Capricorn and Aquarius depending on your location and time zone. This is the beginning of the Sage Moon cycle and is our first new moon of the new year.
This new moon will have you wanting to take charge, make changes and stay disciplined. The Sun in Aquarius is fueling that “new you” energy that is motivating your desires and dreams to take shape.
You might be wanting to find a brand new way of expressing yourself as well with the moon in Aquarius for a short period of time. Spring is on the way with Imbolc being right around the corner… but we do still have a few more weeks of winter. Imbolc takes place on the 2nd this month and represents the midpoint in the winter season, meaning “In the Belly.” This means that your ideas are forming and taking shape, but it’s not quite time for physical growth just yet.
This new cycle is all about clearing away the old in order to make room for the new growth you are cultivating. It is important to clear away what might be standing in your way. We must decide what we want, so we know what we need to give up to get it. What kind of life do you want to create this new year? How do you want to live? What seeds are you wanting to plant this spring?
Aquarius energy is all about expansion and enlightenment. The desire for progression and new knowledge could be at the forefront of your mind. You might even feel pulled inward towards mediation in order to receive messages from your higher self or guides during this week.
Use this new moon in Aquarius to tap into your intuition and reconnect with your higher self. The moon waxes in Pisces later this week which can help shine even more light into your subconscious and intuitive side.
