What The New Moon In Aquarius Means For All Signs
Love, Zodiac

Maybe it’s not what we want to hear, but the new moon in Aquarius on January 24th brings with it the energy of making sure we’ve tied up any loose ends from our past before we have that new beginning we’ve been dreaming of.

Typically a time of starting something new, in astrology, new moons are a time for beginnings. But because of the challenging aspects involved with this one, it’s bringing with it not just an energy of reflection, but also caution.

Aquarius is a zodiac sign that loves to walk the path less traveled. It's an intellectual but fiercely independent sign that encourages us to not give into the wants of others, and to have the courage to stand up for what we believe in.

Often associated with powerful new beginnings when we see the moon transiting through her, this time is no exception. Although, we are being warned that we may have to slow down a bit on this new path and make sure we’re not overlooking anything from our past.

During this lunar event, both the Sun and Moon will be squaring Uranus, which signifies that we will to have to reflect on matters of our past and how it relates to the plans we’ve begun to make for our future; there's also an element of surprise associated with this moon.

Uranus is the planet of change; also known as shock and awe, he tends to bring change and surprise to where we least suspect it, but where it is also deeply needed.

What is also interesting to note is that since the Sun represents our external self and the Moon internal, whatever changes this moon helps begin will be in all areas of our lives. This new moon isn’t so much beginning something that will be unexpected, but rather taking on the energy of the cluster of powerful astrology we saw mid-month and continuing with it.

Everything is set up this month just to make sure we know we can no longer go back. But that doesn’t mean we still don’t need to deal with situations we’ve created or that have brought us to this point in our lives.

Venus, Neptune, Jupiter and Mars are all heavily associated with this new moon, which will bring its own level of intensity and the connection to the divine masculine and feminine, affecting those deeply spiritual intimate relationships like soulmates and twin flames.

Venus in Pisces at this time will only magnify these feelings because of the musical and dreamy energy they create. It’s likely we got a little too caught up in being excited a few weeks ago with the eclipse energy (among everything else) and missed a few steps on this new path we had begun. In many ways, it’s not a horrible problem to have as it indicates we’ve finally moved forward and made progress in letting go of what no longer serves us, but it doesn’t mean we can just leave things as they are.

When we move homes, we don’t just knock on someone’s door and inform them we’re moving in. We don’t leave behind our clothing, our belongings or our pets. We plan it out, decide on why we want to move, make sure our budget is stable, and then begin looking for a suitable place. We pack our things carefully, throwing out what we don’t want to take, and clean up.

It’s no different when we make big life changes. We need to carefully pack up what we want to take with us, throw away (not abandon) what no longer does, and then clean things up. Leave things properly in their place and uncluttered.

This is truly moving on, personal growth, and how an awakened conscious adult makes big life changes. Sometimes things do happen more quickly than others and we don’t always have the time to do things as we would have liked. But we can still do our best, and we can still admit when we haven’t done that.

Take the time around this Aquarius new moon to reflect on what steps might have been skipped towards this new beginning, even if it’s just a conversation with an ex, friend or family member. Consider if it feels like you made the changes with honesty and integrity; if not, take the steps to correct it. It’s always okay to apologize when we make mistakes, it’s just unacceptable to act like we don’t make any.

But it’s also important to make sure the changes or direction you’re moving in are the ones that are calling to your soul. Make sure you’re not in denial or trying to ignore signs from the universe, and that you’re not forcing anything to work in your own life.

What we often don’t realize is that the Universe makes it obvious who belongs in our life and who doesn’t. Yes, there will challenges, but those true soul connections that are divine will be effortless, even if to choose them is wracked with difficulty.

During this Aquarius new moon, be aware of anything you’re forcing, pushing, or that may have claw marks from being held on too tightly. And trust where you’re guided and to whom.

There is a great deal of fated divine high frequency energy coming in this month that is all about directing you on the path of purpose and destiny. Don’t miss it just because you were afraid. Don’t miss this chance to have it all just because you still doubted you deserved it.

Most of all, don’t mess it up because you didn’t want to deal with tying up loose ends. Because the only thing worse than missing an opportunity is messing one up before it’s even begun.
