New Moon in Aquarius

New Moon in Aquarius

The moon is on her way to being new this Saturday January 21 in the airy sign of Aquarius at 2:53 pm CST. New moons are the perfect time each month to make wishes and set new intentions.  If we’ve gotten in wrong or we feel things are a mess in our lives, the new moon gives us an opportunity to begin anew. Friday January 20 will be the dark moon and this is a great time to get some down time, maybe clean out a drawer or get rid of some of the things in your closet.  This is the time each month with our psychic vibe is on high so the day before the new moon is a great time to ask ourselves, “What does the next month have in store for me?”
