This Weekend's Super New Moon
Invites Us to Look FORWARD
The Cosmic Winds are About to Pick Up Speed!
With Mars in Retrograde the last 11 weeks and Mercury in Retrograde the last 3 weeks, we have all felt a significant pull back. The Stars in 2022 heightened our sensitivity~ leaving many of us feeling "over-charged". The last few weeks have invited us inward, to process the last year and reflect on our past, present and future. Think of Retrogrades to be like a sling shot~ They first pull you back so you can get a broader perspective, a greater view of what is around you. From this vantage point you can clearly see the direction you wish to be headed~ before you are "shot" ahead...
And the Stars this Weekend are Full of Sparks
~ With the Intention to Catapult Us Forward!
We cannot control the Universe, but we can work in unison with it. Connecting with the Moon Cycles is an easy way to connect with the Universal rhythms. Each month the Universes gifts us with a New Moon and an opportunity to rest, reflect & re-set. It is the ideal time to plant new seeds and set intentions. New Moons bring us Optimism with the idea of a "fresh start" and potential of New Beginnings ahead. Saturday is a SUPER New Moon, the 1st of 3 Super Moons in a row. Super Moons (Perigee) are Moons that are closer to Earth. The proximity enhances the gravitational pulls on the ocean's tides, the earth's tectonic plates and our emotional bodies as well. In other words, it intensifies the Moon's energy!
Not only do we have a SUPER New Moon this weekend, but we have a number of other transits that mark a New Cycle & New Beginnings ahead.
Friday January 20th: Sun enters Aquarius. A New Lunar Month shifing our focus to Progression & Reform
Saturday January 21st: We have our 1st New Moon of the year, the Aquarius Super New Moon marks the beginning of the Chinese Lunar New Year. A New Moon is the 1st of 8 phases of the Moon, the time to plant new seeds & set new Intentions.
Sunday January 22nd: The Planet Uranus (Aquarius' ruler) Stations Direct after 5 months of Retrograde. Watch for sudden Insight, unexpected events or significant shifts. Look for Signs, consider them personal guidance as to how to set your stage for the month and year ahead. I trust that Uranus will bring the unexpected changes we need.
January 22nd: The Planets Venus & Saturn meet in Conjunction at 24° Aquarius. Jupiter will Conjunct Juno in Aries. ~ All Conjunctions mark a new cycle.
January 23rd- April 21st: All Planets will be moving forward giving us a Green Light to Go!! Trust me, we will feel this! Are you ready? Remember... The seeds we plant over the next couple of New Moons, have potential for accelerated manifestation!
With the Sun, Moon, Venus and Saturn all in Aquarius this week, we all get a jolt of Aquarius energy. Aquarius shows us the value of Networking, Brainstorming, Collaboration, Freedom and Equality. Aquarius reminds us that we can go much farther when we work "together". Aquarian's are Unique, they are Innovative, they think out of the box. If you were born with significant Aquarius or 11th House in your chart you were born to be an agent of change, that is why you don't fit in. We all have Aquarius in our chart somewhere. Where Aquarius is in YOUR chart is where YOU approach things differently, where you can make a positive change and where you have the power to better manage your Destiny. This month, we are all encouraged to embrace and express the unique parts of ourselves!
Saturday's New Moon marks the Eve of the Chinese New Year! 2022 was the Year of the Water Tiger- reminding us that it is a time to AWAKEN! 2023 is the year of the Water Rabbit reminding us to focus on what is REALLY important. The Rabbit shows us the value of stillness, listening, gentleness and harmony. The Rabbit brings us a very different year, a time to rest, heal and recharge.
We have come through a couple of very heavy years, and an Aquarius New Moon brings the Optimism, Enthusiasm and Excitement we (desperately) need to feel motivated about the year ahead. In a few weeks when the Planets have picked up their speed, we will be in a heightened manifesting time. Accelerated change is necessary right now on a Global level. On a personal level, we need to keep up with it. It is very important for us to "set the stage" right now, to be prepared once the pace picks up.
My Mantra for 2023:
"What Helps You Remember WHO You Are?
Do more of that!!
What Lights You Up?
Do more of that too!!"
My advice to everyone is to put these answers at the top of your 2023 Intention List. This will give you clues as to what your Destiny is and on how best to set the stage for it. Think about how much harder it would be to set the stage in the dark and having misinformation on the lead character!?!
"Understanding WHO you are, acknowledging who you are and expressing your Innate Qualities is what gives you CLARITY, CONFIDENCE & HEIGHTENED INTUITION! Truly “knowing” yourself is what gives you POWER! ." DONNA FLOOD~ Aquarius Moon
