The new Moon arrives on January 30 in the sign of humanitarianism, friendship and long-term goals. This is an invitation to set your intentions for your higher goals over the next six months. Aquarius is the sign where we move out of our own selfish and limited concerns and realize the power of interdependence and interconnectedness. We’re keenly aware of our “tribe” and where we feel we belong and where and with whom we feel like an outsider.

This particular new Moon is especially intense because Jupiter in Cancer and Pluto in Capricorn are moving into an exact opposition just 12 hours later. This is a time when we will see many family and domestic issues coming to an emotionally dramatic head. Power struggles, shadow selves, letting go of past hurt and dealing with fear and lack of forgiveness all arise during this new Moon.

Where do you want to start fresh and let go of the past? Venus will finally come out of retrograde the day after this new Moon. This is a powerful opportunity to use the last day of the Venus Retrograde revisionary relationship period as it coincides with this new Moon to end destructive patterns with our loved ones and to move forward with the commitment to handle things differently. We don’t have to repeat the same cycles with lovers, friends or families.

This new Moon is about coming together and celebrating the differences between us as we break through any stubborn emotional knots, grudges or grievances that keep us in the illusion of separateness from others. The sign of Aquarius is symbolized by the Star archetype in the major arcana of the Tarot. This is a sign of the calm, objective reflection that arrives after an ego storm. Aquarius represents our ability to step back and discern the situation from a less emotionally biased perspective. Harness the powers of discernment, reason and tolerance for every freaky, bizarre, irrational and eccentric unique being out there.
