It is the New Moon in Aquarius on January 21 in the northern hemisphere. It is time to set intentions for what you want moving forward in your personal healing and what you hope to accomplish or is your purpose in this lifetime. This lunation is ruled by Uranus the “Great Awakener.” When setting intentions you want focus on your fate, destiny and serving others. Know what you set in motion, the power of spirit, God, your higher power will steer you toward what is meant to be. So trust as you create and be open to new directions when inspired and it feels true.
The Aquarian is very much an individual, innovative, inventive, futuristic, intelligent, eccentric, humane, their ideas are geared toward the greater good of a free society & has a scientific view of life. Stereotypically, they can be more inclined to have a lot of acquaintances than close friends, by choice. However, they do rely on like-minded individuals to help them grow and bring their ideas to life. They will retreat if their ego is challenged and prefer to stand away from the crowd rather than be the one who gets the recognition. They are happy with only a few selected close friends. They are not one to infringe on the rights of others and very much believe in personal freedoms and independence as sovereignty is a big part of their foundational self. The Aquarian cycle is a great time to kick new ideas into action that are for the greater good of all.
With the influences this lunar cycle, we are surrounded by forward moving energy and you can possibly feel the buzz to act. Mars the planet of action is no longer retrograde along with Mercury the ruler of communication and on the 22nd, Uranus, the great awakener turns around as well. The ideas or longed for changes you have been trying to launch in the past year that felt were never going to materialize, now have the energy & support to move forward. With the support of Aquarius, you can fine tune your dreams into ideas that will benefit the greater good. Or perhaps you’ll be inspired to change directions toward something inventive and humane more aligned with your truth. This is a great time for the inventive mind to feel empowered to create. To gather with community, communicate and create inventive ideas for the good of all. It is also a time to study, learn and try new things. But most of all, you need to trust that spirit has your back and will give you a push in the right direction if your intentions are not fated.
I encourage you to set your intentions toward accomplishing what is in your heart, serving community and empowering authenticity and freedom of expression. Let’s see what the cards say we need to know about opening ourselves to creativity and exercising freedom of expression while serving community. I drew a card from the Wisdom of the Oracle by Collette Baron-Reid. The card is: “Breathe.” The essential meaning of this card is patience, waiting, going slowly, all is well, meditation and trust. The book says now is the time to allow this life-giving element of air to replenish your life, your light and your very essence. Stop to smell the roses, breathe in the light, release the darkness and the miracles will appear. I say, this is very much aligned with Aquarius as it is a fixed, Air sign. One of the most powerful tools in creating and feeling freedom is to clear your mind and follow your inspirations. Then allow that same freedom to the people in your life and community by letting go of judgement and control. Allow yourself to move about your life focused on what is in front of you at that very moment, focused on what you are doing at that very time, motivated by inspiration from the heart. Trust! Believe you will be divinely guided if you clear your mind as in meditation! Let go of the busy chatter and worry less as these disempowering actions cause stagnation and a lower vibration. If we can let go and allow the inspirational, true/heart choices to present themselves, we can reach our fated purpose. Remember, when in doubt, send love as that is the highest vibrational energy and we are all energy. Love, trust and faith are a strong replacement for the unknown.
