Each New Moon falls in one sign of the zodiac or another, and as a result, each New Moon acquires a certain “flavour“ as it takes on the qualities of the sign. The New Moon on Thursday February 15, 2018 occurs in Aquarius.
And not only that! There’s also a partial solar eclipse on the very same day. The next day there is another major event – Chinese New Year of the Yang Earth Dog. What an interesting week!
Below is a guide to the top 5 things to do at the time of the New Moon in Aquarius.
Release and let go of attachment at this New Moon. Aquarius is the most detached sign of all. People get confused about Aquarius because although it’s the Water Bearer, it’s an Air sign and as such, it tends to live a lot inside its own head. This has its drawbacks of course, but overall, the place where we have Aquarius in our chart is where we can be pragmatic, as opposed to overly emotional and too led by feelings only. Sometimes logic is called for.
2. Be true
Use the New Moon in Aquarius to ask yourself if you’re giving yourself the space to be your true, own unique self. Aquarius is the sign that does not care about convention as much as the rest of us. It actually makes sense that Valentine’s Day falls in the Aquarius period since people fall in love when they see someone’s real self, weird bits and all.
3. Be inventive
If you’re feeling stumped by someone or something, harness the New Moon in Aquarius to come up with a new idea or invention or solution. The Aquarius energy is all about looking forwards to the future and what’s next. It’s a fashion-forward sign that also rules technology and progress. If you’ve become stuck in a rut, this is the time of year to acknowledge that and make some changes. Make like the Aquarius energy and care less about society’s norms.
4. Be charitable
If you only make one charitable donation a year, make it when the New Moon in Aquarius is taking place. Aquarius is an energy that wants to work for the betterment of the human race and this is the time for all of us to do our bit.
Be sociable this month too. Aquarius is a funny sign that it’s almost better at relating to large groups of people than it is one on one. That’s why it’s such a humanitarian sign. So when the New Moon in Aquarius takes place, it’s a great time to check in with your friends and social circles. Aquarius has a real sense of people getting together for a common ideal, so seek our your tribe.
