I love new moons because they have so much potential; they're the beginning of a new cycle, and with that comes optimism, hope and the opportunity to plant new seeds. New moons offer a wonderful time to set intentions around new beginnings.
The New Moon in Aquarius
Aquarius- an air sign- rules the mind, thoughts, vision, imagination, self expression. Aquarius also tend to be great visionaries and inventors- their minds and ideas are vast and unique. Even though you may not be an Aquarius, you have the ability to tap into these qualities with the energy of this Moon. The image that keeps coming to me for this new moon is that of the hawk; soaring high in the sky, surveying the landscape and being guided by its inner compass. Aquarius has the ability to see "the whole" (rather than the individual).
So ask yourself: where is the hawk (you inner compass) leading you and what do you see? What is the bigger picture and where do you need to direct your energy and focus to begin this new cycle? Connect deeply to that inner compass and really trust what direction you are being pointed. Use your imagination, let your visions carry you to create the flight path on which you're being called.
4 Steps to WORK WITH the New Moon in Aquarius
1) GET OUTSIDE, commune with nature, and feel the wind on your skin. This can really help to connect you to your inner being and guide, as well as give you clarity of mind as you move forward setting your intentions.
2) Use your inner eye to ENVISION the direction you're heading or the seeds you're planting. Really see your intentions coming to fruition and unfolding around you, and whisper those intention into the wind!
3) If you work with CRYSTALS, try carrying some high vibe stones that really resonate with your third eye to open up that inner vision. Amethyst is the big one that comes to mind, although Apophyllite is also wonderful, as is Lapis Lazuli, Fluorite, and Clear Quartz is always a go-to.*
4) And finally, to really connect to "the whole", make a conscious effort to LIFT THE ENERGY of the community around you today. Try looking people in the eye as you pass them on the street. Try smiling at strangers, or giving someone a compliment. I know it sounds cheesy, but honestly, smiling at someone on the street (even if they don't smile back) and just generally being friendly can really create a shift. And that's the whole point of lifting our own energy and consciousness! Why bother unless we can effect those around us and make a positive impact?
Wishing you much love on this New Moon and may your visions be blessed!
