The moon is on her way to being new this Friday February 9 in the airy sign of Aquarius at 4:59 pm CST. New moons occur every month when the sun and moon are in the same sign at the exact same degree; in astrology this is known as a conjunction. For this particular new the sun and moon will both be at 20 degrees Aquarius. New moons are about new beginnings and it’s the perfect time each month to make wishes and set new intentions.

Keywords and the New Moon in Aquarius: uniqueness, originality, eccentricity, idealism, perversity, hope, humanitarian, revelation, independence, rebellion, experimentation, rigidity, deviation, bohemianism, technology, freedom. As you look over the keywords; do any of them describe your life and circumstances right now?

Elements and the New Moon in Aquarius: Each astrological sign belongs to one of the four elements; fire, earth, air or water. Aquarius belongs to the air element meaning thinking, analysis, communication, connections and curiosity are of utmost importance. This cerebral approach to life can make the air signs seem detached on an emotional level. All this mental stimulation needs an outlet hence the reason you’ll find the Aquarian sharing their ideas with anyone who will listen. In relationships Aquarius can have a difficult time sharing their feelings; like fellow air sign Gemini, they also have a need for freedom so they can be hard to pin down when it comes to commitment. This detached attitude is actually a necessity for Aquarius because they’re the “unicorns” of astrology meaning the Waterbearer is here to be different. Aquarius is here to shake up the status quo with their originality.

Aquarius must embrace the role of oddball. Playing the role of odd one out requires a certain level of emotional detachment; otherwise the Aquarian would be in danger of getting their feelings hurt on a daily basis. So, at its most basic level we could say a new moon in Aquarius dares us to be different and original regardless of what others may think. Celebrate your individuality. Fly your freak flag and accept who you are.

The 11th House and the New Moon in Aquarius: Not only are there twelve signs but there is also twelve houses in astrology. Each astrological house represents certain areas in our lives and each astrological sign is linked to one of these cosmic houses. Aquarius is linked to the 11th House the angle of the astrological wheel that rules our hopes and wishes; the vision we have for our lives. This week’s new moon in Aquarius and it’s link to the 11th House makes this the perfect time to envision your dream, speak your dream, write your dream down on paper and then remain open to the possibilities. If you’ve lost your confidence and hope the new moon in Aquarius is an opportunity to reconnect with the higher powers of the Universe and restore your hope and faith in life and love. There’s no need to worry about where the answers are going to come from; Aquarius energy is erratic, “out-of-the-blue” energy meaning the answers to your prayers can come from the strangest people and places.
