Aquarius New Moon 2019

February 4, 2019 4:04 PM NYC

This is a positive and empowering new moon that gives the resourcefulness and drive to commit to your new goals and projects. The sun and moon at 15 degrees of Aquarius unite with Mercury at 19 degrees. These three planets working together in the innovate and forward-thinking Aquarius encourage a dispassionate and logical analysis of your objectives and the steps you will need to take to get there.

The sun/moon/Mercury combination is also in positive relationship to several other planets. Jupiter, currently at 18 degrees of free-spirited Sagittarius, is in a close sextile to all three. Your confidence in your vision is growing, and you may even be surprised to see your dreams, and your sense of what is possible expand further now.

Mars and Uranus, currently conjunct in “act first, think later” Aries, are also in positive sextile to the new moon. You may be ready to take bold and drastic action towards your dreams. The line between inspired momentum and reckless impulsiveness is thin now so use your Aquarian analytical skills to take a pause and consider if the things you feel like you NEED to do RIGHT NOW are truly in line with your longterm strategy and objectives.

The co-rulers of the new moon, pragmatic Saturn and disruptive Uranus, are loosely square to one another in the signs of Capricorn and Aries, where we see the continuing tension and frustrations that has been boiling over in these two signs for the past few years. The tension between a desire for freshness and change, and the intractable ways of the old paradigm, continues to be the background.

But with so much energy in the bold, optimistic and future-oriented signs of Sagittarius, Aquarius and Aries, you can craft a new vision of how to process now, despite whatever obstacles are in your way.
