A new lunar cycle welcomes us this Aquarius season. Luna gets reborn on Feb. 4th at 15˚ Aquarius at 1304 PT / 1604 ET. The day before, the planet of harmonious connections, Venus, entered Saturn’s territories joining the pile up in Capricorn. Venus changes her vibe from hopeful to hardworking. This New Moon receives help from Jupiter in Sagittarius by way of a right hand sextile and is also supported by Mars and Uranus in Aries from the left. This feels like a therapeutic hot steam for your aching muscles with the meeting of fire and air. Hosted by Saturn in Capricorn, this New Moon is ripe with so much productive potential. A New Moon in Aquarius is a truth and knowledge seeker. The fixed air sign of the water bearer carrying the collective wisdom of the universe. It aims to unlock the wisdom of equality and the truth in justice. She’s independent and intelligent just like “Miss Luzon” below.
The next two weeks moves on with Mercury being stuck between a rock and a hard place in Pisces. Mercury normally stays in a sign for just a little over 2 weeks. Mercury moves fast and likes it that way. But because of their upcoming retrograde phase, they’ll be staying in Pisces starting Feb. 10th until (gasp!) Apr. 16th. Mercury prefers dimensions that can be neatly categorized. In Pisces, all that form dissolves into an ether of confusion and imagination. This time is best spent getting lost in poetry and magic.
A few days later, Mars leaves his dynamic home for Taurus on Feb. 14th, a place he has a hard time being in. If Mars signifies separation, in Taurus, ruled by Venus, she signifies connection. This makes Mars’ job very hard. Mars will be hosted by Venus who is ultimately received by Saturn in Capricorn. This reception and a sign based trine helps to mitigate Mars’ potential for harm.
The first two weeks of February 2019 has so much fertility and possibility for giving shape to our plans. There’s a good enough mix of practicality and a touch of intuition and magic. For cultures in the East and Southeast Asia, this time is celebrated as a new Lunar New Year. May we all flourish and plant new seeds of abundance. May all beings know freedom and have enough to sustain their lives.

Be filled with anticipation for new pleasures. All this play ultimately serves all the work you desire to get done. Allow yourself the space to have more fun.
Get into your past and uncover the memories of your early life. Get into your ancestral lineage and ask them for help and guidance.

This is a new opportunity to objectively look at where you come from and how you can merge that into your understanding of where you’re headed. Build new sacred spaces for remembrance in your home.

You are blessed with a renewal of self this year. Let all that grace flow through you. Let others hear what you have to say.

The eclipses from 2017 to last month has been monumental and possibly life changing. Do you recognize yourself compared to 2 years ago? You’ve had to shed old skin and now you’ve arrived at the dawn of a new day. Steadily dig through the hidden corners of your memories and hard past. The dark soil gives you plenty nutrition to bud new narratives of who you are. If lucky, you’ll find yourself supported by the people who have witnessed your painful and glorious rebirth. This month will inspire you to keep excavating the roots of your existence. Keep searching for the truth as you embody a new identity, a new path, a new future.
Pay closer attention to your sleep-dreams and flashes of memories. You may start to remember clearly what was once elusive and out of reach. The New Moon is steadily exploring the hidden truths buried deep down in your layers of consciousness. This is a good time to cultivate more magic in your life. Give yourself space to nourish a deep and transcendental internal life. This process can help you make sense of your forward direction. The public recognition you’re to receive this year equally requires that you also spend as much time behind the spotlight. Make time for sacred solitude. Take care of your wounds.
