Aquarius’ liberating energy graces us on February 8th (9:39 AM EST) with a new moon at 19’16 degrees. New Moons are the beginning phase of a cycle. During this time we plant seeds and hopefully they develop and come to fruition during the Full Moon phase. This is the reason why setting intentions during the new moon can be a powerful tool towards bringing awareness

Aquarius is the sign of liberation and freedom. Above all else during this time we need to question what we’re willing to fight for and what our place is when it comes to humanity. The new moons sextile to Uranus/Vesta in Aries brings about a forceful and radical approach to what we’re passionate about and the kinds of sacrifices we’re willing to make. Uranus’ conjunction to Vesta is encouraging us to take an innovative approach to how we master our inner flame and what we hold sacred. The Part of Fortunes placement with Uranus/Vesta points to success when we take a stand and dare to be different.

While the new moon chart is not a personal natal chart, the Sun/Moon in the 11th house of of groups, hopes, friends and our ambitions, is quite revealing. Friendships and alliances may be reformed during this period giving us a fresh perspective on what it is we really want from the people we associate with.

Uranus’ participation may bring about some unexpected changes that are sudden andAquarius New Moon bring with it some breakthroughs that are desperately needed. The new moons square to Mars in Scorpio has us striving to break free from anything that we may perceive is holding us back; There’s a strong sense of revolt with this new moon and a great need to take action, even if it’s done covertly (Mars in Scorpio) This need for extreme liberation may rear its head when it comes to relationships/commitment as well: Juno in Scorpio close to Mars in the 8th house of sex/death/transformation may have those of us who are feeling controlled, and possibly manipulated  by those we’re intimately involved with, looking for the nearest exit.

This energy is further supported by Mars’ quincunx to both Uranus and Vesta. If any attempt is made to control us or box us in or threaten our dedication (Vesta) to doing things our way, we’ll certainly show individuals what we’re made of.

The Sun/Moon in Aquarius also forms a quincunx to Jupiter/North Node in Virgo. Whether the need to reform is on a personal level or a universal one, it’s our souls purpose to expand and grow during this planetary phase. We’re being challenged to dare to be ourselves and we’re more than willing to make that happen. Expect flashes of insight, changes that are more than welcome, and creative juices that flow more freely than usual.

Healing crystals for the Aquarius New Moon: I’ve chosen stones that for me embody the electric and liberating energies that Aquarius possesses.

  • Amber – Aligns both the ethereal and physical energies in the body. Transmutes negative energies.
  • Amethyst – Balances the intellectual (Aquarius) emotional and physical. Clears the auric field.
  • Angelite – Raises consciousness and assists with astral travel.
  • Garnet – Aids in expansiveness, awareness and manifestation.
