New Moon In Aquarius

Tonight is the first New Moon of the year. A new moon, a new year, and a new you. This is the time to cast off 2016 once and for all and start our journey into 2017.

The January New Moon is one of the significant starting energies to the year ahead, and is going to help blow away the cobwebs of 2016.

As you have probably heard by now, 2016 was a year of endings, which means that 2017 is a year of new beginnings. This death and rebirth cycle is playing out in all of our lives in some way or another, and perhaps in the coming weeks you are going to start feeling the “rebirth” occurring. This rebirth energy won’t fully shift into gear until the Spring Equinox, however the January New Moon in Aquarius is definitely going to start setting the wheels in motion.

A new cycle is beginning for you. The Aquarius New Moon can empower you to move in a bold direction. You may break free from bad habits and relationships. You are no longer distracted by fear and doubt. You are ready to be who you were born to be. This is a time of great luck, so go out and try new things. Use this lucky time to grow businesses, start new jobs, go to interviews, find a new love. Often when things don’t feel good in our lives, we want to change everything all at once, but take small steps, just change one small thing at a time.

Our emotions will be high and confusing for the next few days, we may be feeling happy and overjoyed one minute, then sad and crying the next. You may have problems sleeping and you may have weird, vivid dreams. Our nerves may be on edge, and arguments and misunderstandings could flare up. But don’t worry, as this will pass soon. This is our body, mind, and spirit aligning.

If you start to see your challenges from a different perspective, you will see your challenges as opportunities for growth, they keep your life fresh and lively. Your life can be much freer than you may have realized. New opportunities will emerge. Believe in your dreams coming true. Believe when you wish upon a star. A star is probably shining on you right now. The New Moon is opening up a new pathway for you. Perhaps it was there all along and now your eyes are fully open.

This New Moon will strengthen the impact for change. It is setting the tone for the New Year. Don’t allow anything to hold back your dreams and desires. Listen to your intuition. We know intuition is your inner knowledge, so allow your Higher Self to guide you to new relationships and goals. Sudden unexpected opportunities can come to you from out of the blue at this time, seize them and make the most of any opportunity that comes your way.

There are new perspectives to be enjoyed now and this reminds us that no matter how far we may have strayed from where we want to be, we can always get back there as long as there is hope and the will to move and grow.

Aquarius is ruled by the element of Air, use the energy of this New Moon to allow the winds of change to come. 2017 is going to be an amazing and lucky year, so take this moment to enjoy the new vibration and the fresh start that this New Moon offers.

Have a Blessed New Moon and may the Goddess watch over you.
