Collective energies:

This next lunar month begins with the new moon in innovative and quirky Aquarius. Aquarius energy invites us into possibility, originality, and if we’re lucky, our zany and eccentric side. It may stir up restlessness or give us sudden insights into unconscious and conscious aspects or patterns of ourselves we may not have been able to access before.

Aquarius seeks freedom and awakening and pulls us into future versions of ourselves. Another important aspect of Aquarius is its concern with the collective consciousness and communal thinking. Although its often tech savvy ways cannot be ignored as many prominent entrepreneurs also have this as a Sun or Moon sign. The air sign connects us to energies of originality, eccentricity, freedom, radical expression, and epiphanies of all sorts. It concerns us with the realm of humanity, community and invites us to ponder our place within the whole.

When activated, Aquarius compels us to consider social justice and the collective experience of humankind. However, Aquarius isn’t all creativity and humanitarian, as even the sign of expansion has a shadow. When in its less desirable expression, Aquarius can be aloof, non-committal, or detached. Because it likes to create things, it may also be difficult to keep interest in them long enough for completion. Another aspect to watch out for with Aquarius detriment is the sense of being completely unique in such a way that it feels it can’t relate to others.

Mercury sits next to the new moon offering an analytical angle or an invitation into intuition. In the sign of Aquarius, the thinking planet aligns with “forward thinking” and outside-of-the-box ideas. Though watch out for the monkey mind and restless tendencies this combination may evoke.

Jupiter also adds a supportive energy to this new moon through a subtle sextile angle. This energy may be felt as a heart opening or sense of gratitude and optimism. Other current astrological energies of influence include a Neptune square Jupiter tension of illusions and ideals and the subtle Saturn sextile Neptune grounding our visions into reality. This new moon is also the Chinese Lunar New Year and while the Eastern and Western zodiac systems are very different though they both evoke a sense of renewal. With the recent Imbolc Pagan holiday we get closer and closer to the astrological new year of spring season.

Perhaps the greatest gift of this Aquarius New Moon is the possibility of evolution both personally and collectively. Be prepared for potential epiphanies or a stirring up of your own inner rebel, with or without a cause.

 

Everyday ritual recommendations:

DO // Start a new creative project or restart an old one, or do something, anything you have never done before.

BE // Any meditation that calms the nervous system, soothes the monkey mind, and opens the way for sparks of insight. Try the Tranquility & Peace Ritual Kit perhaps!

WATCH // Films or documentaries that highlight those who dared to step out of the norm.

READ // Your smart phone manual to up your tech savvy game or any article or magazine geared towards entrepreneurship, creativity, or art.

Happy New Year! We have initiated a brand new cycle with fresh and fertile possibilities (and a lot fewer major transits) to engage with in 2022. The busiest planet this year is Jupiter, versus Saturn and Uranus the past couple of years, which is a massive (literally) refreshing energy that ushers in luck, optimism, expansiveness, and joviality. Here’s a quick astro recap to start the year to ensure solid understanding of planetary transits:

Season’s greetings! We can look forward to enjoying the expansive and optimistic energy of Sagittarius most of the month, then will cap off the month (and the entire year) in solid, structural Capricorn energy. Although this month has a LOT of activity, it will feel lighter, more exciting, and more action-oriented, as we have Neptune and Chiron stationing direct, a solar eclipse that breaks up stagnant energy, and inner planets Mars and Mercury switching signs. One big retrograde to pay attention to is...
