For those of us on the West Coast, this is our second New Moon of the month—also called a Black Moon—but for everyone, this is the first New Moon of a new lunar cycle and this one is bringing ch-ch-changes! Ruled by Uranus, the planet of revolution and change, Aquarius is planting its freak flag on Mother Moon and is asking you to wave yours. The rebel of the Zodiac, Aquarius sparks new ideas, visions and ways of approaching things, so it’s time to shake things up and think outside the box. This might be a little tough for fixed signs—Taurus, Leo, Scorpio and Aquarius—who don’t love change, but do you really expect to become an even badder bitch doing the same things all the time? INSANITY (literally)! And just because you mutable signs (ya'll hear me, Gemini, Virgo, Sagittarius, and Pisces?) can roll with the punches, doesn’t mean this is a get out jail free card. This is a time for every sign to push out of their comfort zones to become their most badass selves!
Now enough about you; it wouldn’t be very Aquarian to not discuss the collective at large. After all, as the ruler of the twelfth house of networking, groups and wishes, Aquarius is super socially- and community-oriented. So set your intentions to include collaborations, connecting with friends, and humanitarian efforts. Aquarian energy is the kind that starts revolutions and leads movements, but they ain’t in it for the clout, they really want to make the world a better place for all of us to live in. But no boss babe gets to the top by themselves (or if you do, bet it’s lonely up there all alone). Think “help me, help you.” And with Mercury Retrograde coming to an end February 3rd, the New Moon in Aquarius’ surrounding energy will supercharge your manifestations!
Rainbow Fluorite - Collective Consciousness
Rutilated Quartz - Forward-thinking
Lepidolite - Change
Suggested Essential Oils:
Jasmine - Innovation
Cedarwood - Humanitarian
Lavender - Soothing Transition
Cleanse your crystals (note: do not use water for Fluorite or Lepidolite) and place them next to your bath. Put a few drops of one or more of the suggested essential oils along with 1/2 cup epsom salt into a hot bath. As you soak, consider friendships, collegial relationships, group projects, and humanitarian efforts you want to collaborate with or take action on and how these will not only help you become the best version of yourself but also do the best for the world around you. If you’re able, consider answering the journal prompts while soaking. Otherwise, do so after getting out, and place your crystals near a window for the New Moon in Aquarius to supercharge them!
