We will experience a New Moon today, January 24, in the sign of Aquarius at 4 degrees. Aquarius is a fixed air sign. Aquarius has to do with innovation and futuristic ideas that in many cases are revolutionary.

Aquarius is an air sign so conversation and open dialogue is highly suggested under this new moon’s influence. Being open is key because Aquarius is known to spread insight and its symbol is the water bearer, spreading the word and sharing information to the multitudes.

Aquarius can be impartial although considered quite fixed in opinions and learned knowledge, therefore during this period, getting involved with groups can be quite beneficial and much can be learned at this time as long as we remain open to new ideas and concepts.

This certainly does not mean that we should be swept away by what others might share with us. Take a grain of salt approach and form your own opinion but don’t become fixated to the point that you believe that your opinion is the only possible correct one. Other people will have their own personal beliefs as well and we can all learn from one another.

The New Moon’s energies suggest that it is a time of new beginnings, a time for a fresh start or the implementation of something that we might have been contemplating for some time. Now is the time to launch these ideas and move ahead as the energies are favourable to push ahead with our endeavours. Perhaps this might be the time to move ahead with something considered unique and original. Sharing common ideas and spreading the word would be favourable under these conditions.

Much more information would be available with a view of our own personal chart of course but having a look at any planets or important angles that might fall within a few degrees and connect by conjunction, opposition, square, trine and sextile to the lunar event will supply us with information as to what energies are involved. The house position will be the area of life involved as well as any connections and their house positions.

There is a square to the moon from transiting Uranus at this time as Uranus is located at 2 degrees Taurus. Uranus tends to be disruptive and fosters much needed change. Although Uranus often speaks of upheaval, when in square to this New Moon’s position, the energies are powerful and there is likely some difficulties associated with what is in place. We will have to work our way through the intrusion in order to achieve what we are setting out to do. Uranus is ruled by Aquarius so what needs to be altered may find a more easy way to be altered than if it were linked to one of the more outer planet.

Often times there is a new sense of direction implied by the energies of Uranus as things have become dormant and we need to move beyond what might feel comfortable even though it offers no clear direction at first. Uranus pushes us where we need to go and will often impact our life in sudden and unexpected manners. The change that may be uncomfortable today will turn out to be a blessing in disguise down the road, but it may take some time to see where it takes us.

Aquarius is farsighted so whatever our plans might be, these plans are likely to receive some opposition especially by those who oppose change. Have a look at the house placement of Uranus at this time and also the natal positioning and aspects to it to get a clearer picture of what is unfolding under this influence. Uranus is the awakener and the New Moon has to do with new beginnings. Who knows where life will take us. Most times we just need to hop aboard without any reservations, knowing that life always takes us to where we need to go.
