New Moon in Aquarius – Year of the Dragon

Updated: Feb 12

The New Moon in Aquarius is the beginning of the lunar new year in Chinese astrology, heralding the year of the Wood Dragon. The Dragon energy is powerful, charismatic and confident; and the wood element carries a very ‘yang’ quality with the vitality of spring. This signifies a year of growth and new beginnings.


On this new moon, you can expect the unexpected, with the Sun and Moon in tight square to Uranus, the ruler of Aquarius. With Mercury in this sign, thoughts turn to humanitarian ideals and new earth projects; and this is an ideal time to plant the seeds of new beginnings. Pluto is still at 0* Aquarius, at the dawn of this great Aquarian era.


The sign of Aquarius is the Water Bearer, who carries the sacred water of life, and pours forth the waters on all humanity. This water is of course the Life Force itself: the glyph of lightening is the ancient symbol for electrical life force energy. The magnetic energy is symbolised by wavy lines.


The Sun is in detriment in Aquarius, being the opposite sign to Leo, the sign of its rulership. Leo represents the self-conscious individual, and Aquarius the selfless individual who is living for the community. The wonderful creativity and heart-centred magnanimity of Leo is channelled into the selfless service of Aquarius.


With the square to Uranus, we are tapping into pure creativity and inspiration. It is no accident that today, we have had the strongest solar flare in years. The dynamic lightcodes are flooding the earth, and we can download and upgrade more efficiently than before. We can shift in an instant what would have taken years. Time to cut out karmic loops and power forward. There is no time to waste.


With the heightened solar frequencies, it is vital to get adequate rest, hydration and proper nourishment according to your individual needs. Listen to your body and honour your need for rest, otherwise burnout and confusion could occur.


Mars and Venus, the divine masculine and feminine, are together in Capricorn. It is time to be strong as brothers and sisters of the new earth, building for the future in a correctly aligned way. What we build now counts. It is important to clear your mind of fear and illusions, so that you can tune into the guidance of your soul and manifest according to the sacred templates within. We build from within and we will not be swayed.


As Venus approaches Mars, she is moving into a sextile with Neptune in Pisces, bringing Divine Feminine magic and higher guidance to relationships. It is time for the feminine to lead the way, with strong boundaries and inspired manifestations of destiny.


Today the collective North Node is conjunct Chiron in Aries. The North Node of destiny is encouraging you to take the lead, to be the pioneer of your life, and to take charge rather than being swayed by others. Chiron is calling us to heal the wounds of the Divine masculine, caused by anger, aggression and control. So when they come together, great healing can occur. Trust the lessons and guidance. Have the courage to learn and move on, releasing the trauma and beginning anew.


This new moon is a powerful time to release the past, give thanks for the past year, and make a fresh start. Anything can happen – the possibilities are endless. The great creative power of the universe can manifest miracles.


Let us hold space for Divine miracles to occur.


New Moon Blessings
