January 22-25 we have a waning crescent moon. That signals the end of old things. You may find yourself wanting to withdraw from much social interaction. That is okay to do. This is a time to rest your mind, renew your spirit, and be ready to purge. It is time to get rid of the way things used to be done and prepare for new things.
January 26-29 the new moon is in Aquarius. Aquarius is an air sign although it is the sign of the water bearer. Ruled by Saturn and Uranus, this is a sign of emotional expression, which can be deep, introspective, and independent. They may be abrupt, aggressive, and hate feeling constrained. So undoubtedly, you will feel a tug and pull during this new moon. On one hand, you may want to stay in, be alone, think. On the other hand, you may feel like you need to throw caution to the wind and go for what you want.
With the new moon, prepare to set your intentions and goals for the next moon cycle. This is why New Year’s Resolutions aren’t important! You have the chance to reset your intentions with each moon cycle. Be open to new ideas, explore new friendships and partnerships. Be very clear in setting your goals.
Release the things that no longer serve you. This week is full of strong air and water elements. There is a sense of deep emotion and freedom. Intellect and emotion intertwined will make a difference this week.
Eclipse season begins January 27. The first lunar eclipse is a full moon in Leo 2/10.
