Love, Zodiac

We get to design our own lives.

On February 15th, we will experience a new moon solar eclipse in Aquarius. This will be the accumulation point from the January 31st super blue blood moon lunar eclipse that shook up our lives. 

Since that specific lunation, we have been within the seismic and chaotic atmosphere of the window between eclipses. During this time not only is anything possible but it is guaranteed. This is good new for your zodiac sign, as it will be bringing big changes to your love horoscope and relationships.

Think of the last full moon and lunar eclipse as the breaking point where we opened up and brought light to something that previously had been hidden within the darkness. After that initial shakeup, we’ve been in unchartered territory where we have to redesign our lives, do the work for what we want, and be willing to imagine an ending different than the one we had previously imagined.

We have also seen a plethora of planets move into Aquarius where this new moon will be joining them. Aquarius is an independent and free-thinking air sign that enjoys doing things differently and likes communicating and working together to think of the best possible approach to a situation, not just the easiest.

But there also are some other important factors that we see with this moon including a conjunction with Juno and Hygeia.

Juno is an asteroid that governs soulmates, true love, marriage, childbirth, and younger women, and Hygeia rules unions, marriages and health, so there will be a strong aspect of commitment associated with this moon.

But it’s not really as simple as that. On the scene is also Uranus, which is still in Aquarius, who likes to do things differently, rebelliously, and is responsible for many of us breaking with the status quo and the long-standing expectations of others, including those traditional family values we have been raised with.

New moons signify a new beginning and life phase, and combined together with a solar eclipse, this means the energy will only be magnified. It’s not just something new we'll be starting, but it’s that brand new chapter we’ve all been craving for so long that is just about ready to begin.

Looking at all of these together, we have the new moon signifying beginnings, Juno and Hygeia on the scene with wedding bells, but Uranus is too tired of doing things the same old way just because everyone else is doing them.

These types of transits are responsible for many of the alternative families and different types of unions and commitments that we see around us today such as same-sex marriage, couples with different religious backgrounds, biracial couples, and even blended families with divorce and children present.

It’s not that the unions matter less or that they are more difficult in this transit; rather, it’s like marriage outside of the box.

So often when we think of marriage, we all have the same idea: rings, white dress, and tux — you know the drill. But Uranus is asking what any of these really have to do with the meaning of marriage itself. What this translates to is us questioning what we have always been doing and instead gravitating toward more untraditional unions and marriages that meet our core needs and life experiences.

Yet, even with this transit that is heavily influenced by marriage and commitment, it doesn’t mean that we will all end February hitched. Instead, it may be a conversation that takes place. Perhaps you and your partner are going to create a new state of togetherness that fit your needs, or you will move in or take a trip together.

All of these aspects are forms of commitment and are done just like Uranus prefers: untraditionally, spontaneously and without much thought to any sort of expectations of others.

For those who are already married, it will be more of a focus on the health of the marriage that already exists, and if there is anything that one or both partners can do in order to better support one another. There might be a shift as far as career goes, although there could be a focus on children and pregnancy thanks to Juno.

If we are attached with no commitment, this new moon solar eclipse in Aquarius will affect us the most because it gives us the opportunity to be able to redefine what any sort of union truly means to us and lets us write our own rules when it comes to our hearts.

When it comes to those of us who are single or just dating, this moon will be ushering in a new chapter of love and will be there helping us redefine how we view ourselves and our own personal view points about what commitment and relationships mean to us.

This moon will be the point at which we will look back six months from now and realize that this is where everything began, or at least the moment that we chose to acknowledge it. It will usher us further into the phase between the super blue blood moon and the next full moon in March by asking us to not only become clear about what it is that we want thanks to the Aquarius energy, but taking time to plan exactly how to make it a reality.

"Because everyone else is doing it" is no longer is a valid reason for any option in this life. Instead, we have to strongly believe in a choice that we make and see the significance in making it happen according to our own hearts.

We truly have the ability to design our lives according to what feels best for us. Not everyone will like it and even fewer will understand, but that’s not what’s important any longer. Because what truly matters is living a life that we’re satisfied by, regardless of what it took to get us here.
