February's New Moon in Aquarius is Full of Surpises

February's New Moon in Aquarius is Full of Surpises

Stay flexible and expect the unexpected.

What better way to begin a new month than with a New Moon?

Our second New Moon of the year takes place on February 1st in the sign of Aquarius, and it will allow us to set new intentions geared toward creating a new and better future.

Aquarius is a sign of innovation, invention, rebellious thinking, and breaking the mold.  Ruled by Saturn (traditionally) and Uranus (modernly), Aquarius is about forming new structures that are anything but conventional.

Speaking of Uranus, this New Moon puts Uranus front and center, and you know what that means...surprises and unexpected changes.

Here's everything you need to know about this New Moon.

The Astrology

New Moons

Astrologically speaking, New Moons are when the Sun and Moon are conjunct, meaning that the Sun and Moon occupy the same space in the sky.  

When this happens, the energies of both luminaries mix together.  The Sun represents our ego and conscious mind, and the Moon represents our emotions and subconscious.  During the New Moon phase, we typically experience a time of complete awareness of our entire selves, inside and out.

The New Moon signifies the beginning of the lunar cycle; seeds are planted, and intentions are set.  The slate is wiped clean, and so are we.

Uranus Makes Things Uncomfortable

If this New Moon brings up feelings of uneasiness or anxiety, you have Uranus to blame.  The planet of sudden shifts and surprises will be square to the New Moon, making things generally a bit uncomfortable.

That feeling of anxiety may be due, in part, to the fact that inherent in every new beginning is an ending.  In relation to the New Moon, Uranus is likely shaking up things that you've held near and dear and that you've come to rely on. 

With Uranus in Taurus, don't be surprised if physical items break or get lost.  The loss of these items will spark you to think of a new replacement, perhaps an updated version.  Being innovative and inventive is the Aquarius way.

Venus Trine Uranus Brings Pleasant Surprises

One of the benefits of this New Moon is the harmonious trine between Venus and Uranus.  This aspect allows the Universe to surprise you concerning love and money.

Venus recently went direct, so things in the love department can move forward.  

With Uranus in the mix as well, pleasant surprises await you.  Perhaps some unexpected money comes your way, or a love interest buys you a gift "just because."  The possibilities are endless.

This pleasant surprise may be just the spark you need to set some new intentions geared toward the future.
