SYMBOL: THE WATER BEARER
RULING PLANET: URANUS
HOUSE: ELEVENTH HOUSE OF FRIENDSHIPS + INNOVATION
Now that Mercury is no longer in retrograde, we can finally get into that “New Year, New Me” vibe with the help of the New Moon in Aquarius! Ruled by Uranus, a planet of progressive forward thinking and revolution, the water-bearer wants you to lean into your unique, rebellious side to reimagine a new path forward. The expansive energy of this New Moon encourages you to dream big when it comes to setting your intentions because where there is Aquarius, major breakthroughs are sure to follow!
Air sign, Aquarius, is also no stranger to standing up for the greater good. How can your manifestations benefit both yourself and the collective at large? Surround yourself with those you can trust, who share your values, and hype each other up! Maybe this is a time to cut ties with toxic people, jobs, or situations. Hold onto the ones that encourage you to live your best life and embrace you for who you are, in true Aquarian style!

Aquarius New Moon Ritual:
Gather and cleanse your crystals, placing them near a window to charge under the Aquarius New Moon’s energy. Revisit the 2023 goals you set during the Capricorn New Moon (or write them out now). Next to each goal write one way you can start the path to achieving it—but think outside the box! Think of methods you normally wouldn’t use and get out of your comfort zone! Then, list the name of a trusted person you can use as a sounding board while working towards achieving your goal (if you can’t think of anyone you currently have in your life, write down how you could go about manifesting a new community/support system). Keep this list handy to check off your gains throughout the year and keep your charged crystals with you until the next New Moon!
