Greetings earthlings – happy new moon! This month the moon and sun dance together in energetic Aquarius. It is this new moon which demarcates the Chinese New Year (second new moon after the winter solstice).
2021 is the year of the Metal Ox. If you are an Ox, 2021 is considered unlucky for you. The year of your own animal is known as tai sui. Traditional advice for warding off the negative influence of tai sui includes wearing red underwear and making an altar pointed in the cardinal direction associated with your animal. The Ox occupies the northeast, which is also considered the “origin of bad influences” according to one interpretation I just read?? I’m sure it will be fine…
Children of the moon, we must be nimble and move with the wind. This new moon is all about navigating unforeseen circumstances. With Aquarius we never know what’s coming. Say goodbye to how you think your plans will unfold; Aquarius is here to change everything without notice. Here’s the message bristling in the breeze: it’s time to be fearless. It is time to ask: why not? Real freedom comes from adaptation, optimism, and detachment from what we thought we knew.
Aquarius is a striking original thinker. He is unique, extroverted, and adventurous. Aquarius is associated with travel, technology, science, and living creatively. Now is the perfect time to start a blog, get behind a camera, or gaze into a microscope/telescope. You may learn more about alternative medicine, genetics, social justice, or environmentalism. No matter what, the Aquarian path is eccentric, it’s weird, it’s not “normal.” For this reason Aquarius is inherently exciting and revolutionary.
There will be a total of six planets in Aquarius on the day of this new moon (Sun, Moon, Mercury Retrograde, Venus, Jupiter, and Saturn). What makes this really crazy is that they will be in exactly reverse order according to their distance from the sun, starting with Saturn at 6 degrees and ending with the sun at 23 degrees.
Good news first: this new moon coincides with a conjunction between Venus and Jupiter. This is a wonderful influence for love, friendship, and physical exercise.
Ok now for the challenging news: this new moon will square Mars in Taurus. Indecisive and fatiguing influence. Treat this new moon like a mini Mercury Retrograde – within a real Mercury Retrograde. Ahhhh! Give yourself extra time to do things.
