NEW MOON IN AQUARIUS :: A New Adventure • The Great Reset

By Lexi Marie of @primally_cosmic_yoga

 

On Saturday January 21, 2023 at 12:53pm PST there will be a New Moon in the sign of Aquarius. With the Sun, Moon, and Saturn all in the Air Sign of Aquarius this energy will be extra powerful. Chani Nichol’s calls this a “major reset”. But wait—there’s more! The following day we will see ALL of the planets go direct for three consecutive months! There will be a fertile time of creation and manifestation. This is a call to action from our solar system telling us to wake up from our slumber and push it full steam ahead! Forward momentum is upon us and it is time to embark on a new adventure.


Aquarius is ruled by the planet Uranus, the Great Awakener, and is the zodiac sign of the innovator, the mad scientist type whose genius is undeniably obvious --however misunderstood at times. Aquarius honors the inherent individuality within us all, full of quirks and uniquities that we sometimes can’t quite wrap our human minds around. This is the sign that symbolizes the connection of all humanity. @farahmsiddiq makes a beautiful interpretation of this energy, “Aquarius: unity consciousness is about finding similarities not differences with one another. Break through the labels conditioned upon you. Expand into totality”


GET UP AND GO


After the Full moon in Cancer earlier this month and the slow start to the year with most of the planets retrograde, we are getting an exciting amount of energy back. Allow your spirit to be replenished. With a burst of inspiration, we are given a jolt of light from the cosmos to help invigorate our spirits. This Air Sign represents the Water Bearer, the divine visionary who enlightens us with its celestial wisdom. We can allow these energy activations to assist us in creating intentions that align with our higher selves and the creative genius that exists within each and every one of us.


Each New Moon we experience every month grants us the opportunity to plant seeds of manifestation and intention. However, this particular New Moon is highlighted by a beautiful aspect with Jupiter, the planet of abundance and manifestation to give us that extra dose of magic we desire to catapult our visions and dreams into manifest reality. Astrologer Chani Nichols says, “because this lunation happens in a friendly aspect to Jupiter, it will pour Miracle-Gro over all our seeds of intention”.


Some themes to consider…


Routine vs. rebellion

Astrologer, Sarah Vrba expresses these two ideals as central to our reflections this New Moon. By defining for ourselves how we view these two concepts we will have a better understanding of where we can make some tweaks to honor both of these polarities. This is a great time to ask ourselves- what is our relationship to these opposing forces? Let us dance between these polarities until we come to a graceful and steady place. Often we feel like we need to choose… the constraints of our physical realm demands decisions on our behalf. How can we bring space for more balance in our lives? It is said that as humans we become creatures of habit and it is true that consistency can provide us with comfort and security, yet sometimes we can get stuck in our routines. They become prisons of stagnation instead of stable and secure foundations. We may have felt this way the past few months with the planet of action, Mars, in retrograde motion. All planets are leading us forward into the future now and establishing a safe routine where we can also honor the rebel within. This is going to be a major key in taking advantage of this vibe.

Trying New Things/Individuality


Allow the unique life force within you to beam with pride. You are divine and you have come so far. You are a powerful presence in this life and no one on the planet is quite like you. This is a fabulous time to invest in those qualities of your personality that help facilitate your true unique nature. Shine like the bright star that you are and join forces with like-minded individuals and soul tribe during this special time.

 

NEW MOON RITUAL :: Ground and Connect with the Collective

With so much energy in the air signs it is important to ground for this new moon so our manifestations and intentions can be planted securely.

1. Connect with your heart chakra.

2. Breathe into this space for a few moments.

3. Visualize a glowing ball of green light emanating from your heart.

4. As you continue to breathe watch this green light grow beyond your body.

5. Imagine this green ball of glowing light spreading throughout the entire room you’re in.

6. Imagine this green light emanating throughout the entire city you’re in, then state, country and eventually it all glows up, the entire planet and beyond.

7. Send love and peace to all beings everywhere.

8. Plant your seeds of intention in the stars and make a wish.
