Continuing from my January blog post about the first New Moon of the year, and getting into New Moon wishing, here we go February.
First, can I just mention, that my wishes from January just blown me away. 9 out of 10 is already fulfilled, in a single month! I am definitely going ahead with my wishes all through the year and I may start to aim higher.
Just to recap, the New Moon is the time to set your intentions for the month ahead. By getting clear on what you want, you will effectively be sending out arrows of desire that cannot help but start to manifest. For detailed tips on New Moon wishing please read the blog above.
The second NEW MOON of 2018 is on Thursday, 15 February - 21:05 and it is an Aquarius New Moon. The moon is void of course between 21.05-02.41, which is not a good time for new starts, so I would recommend getting a good sleep and make your wishes early in the morning.
What areas are connected to the New Moon in Aquarius energy, the Water Bearer, as any wish connected to them will be extra supported:
solve a problem that requires thinking “outside of the box”;
look to the future with a brand new, positive, and hopeful vision;
brainstorm and socialize;
focus on extending a friendly hand, receiving support, and expressing platonic love for those around you;
give your emotions and passions a “break”, as you develop more objectivity and some detachment from past haunts;
learn how something (or someone) works;
revitalize yourself through experiences that are new or simply different;
reach out to people in your social circle and in your community, and recognize the value of your friendships and social networks;
recognize that some level of detachment and distancing ourselves from our habits and attachment to the past will help us break away from destructive behaviors that are holding us back.
goals that involve networking, making connections with others, joining or strengthening ties in a group project/activity, and nurturing good will
Yasmin Boland (Moonology) suggests the following action plans for the Aquarius New Moon:
◗ 1. Detach
Release and let go of attachment at this New Moon (see Part III). Aquarius is the most detached sign of all. People get confused about Aquarius because although it’s the Water Bearer, it’s an Air sign and as such it tends to live a lot inside its own head. This has its drawbacks of course, but overall, the place where we have Aquarius in our chart is where we can be pragmatic, as opposed to overly emotional and too led by feelings only. Sometimes logic is called for.
◗ 2. Be true
Use the New Moon in Aquarius to ask yourself if you’re giving yourself the space to be your true, own unique self. Aquarius is the sign that doesn’t care about convention as much as the rest of us. It actually makes sense that Valentine’s Day falls in the Aquarius period, since people fall in love when they see someone’s real self, weird bits and all.
◗ 3. Be inventive
If you’re feeling stumped by someone or something, harness the New Moon in Aquarius to come up with a new idea or invention or solution. The Aquarius energy is all about looking forwards to the future and what’s next. It’s a fashion-forward sign that also rules technology and progress. If you’ve become stuck in a rut, this is the time of year to acknowledge that and make some changes. Make like the Aquarius energy and care less about society’s norms. (Within reason, mind – do no harm!)
◗ 4. Be charitable
If you only make one charitable donation a year, make it when the New Moon in Aquarius is taking place. Aquarius is an energy that wants to work for the betterment of the human race and this is the time for all of us to do our bit.
◗ 5. Connect
Be sociable this month too. Aquarius is a funny sign in that it’s almost better at relating to large groups of people than it is one on one. That’s why it’s such a humanitarian sign. So when the New Moon in Aquarius takes place, it’s a great time to check in with your friends and social circles. Aquarius has a real sense of people getting together for a common ideal, so seek out your tribe.
Go ahead, make your wish! And then sit back and relax. Even better, take action to make them a reality!
