New Moon in Aquarius 15th February 2018


Inventive, Different, Humanity

On February the 15th there’ll be a New Moon in Aquarius, but before look what the Aquarian New Moon means let’s look a little closer at the Moon itself and what it represents in astrology.

The Moon in Astrology

The Moon represents our inner world: our emotions, mood, feelings of inner security, sensitivity, the unconscious and intuition.  In astrology the Moon is one of the most important planets as she is also mother, home, family, feelings and habits and how we instinctually react to life.

In your natal chart (the time of your birth) the Moons location tells you your emotional tendencies while the Moon’s current location as its moving across sky impacts on our feelings and behaviour in the present.   She speaks to us through our feelings.

About the Sign of Aquarius

Aquarius is the sign that focuses on the greater good, the world, the animals and humanity.  This sign is known as the rebel of the zodiac, when it is not satisfied on how things are it will instigate change with its brilliant ideas and thoughts.

Individuals who born under the sign of Aquarius or have active Aquarian energy do not like all to be seen as one of the mob, they believe they are different to everyone else.   Aquarians are very friendly and helpful however they can be detached and aloof and that prevents others from getting close to them.  This can frustrate relationships because of the lack of intimacy.

Aquarians can be too objective at times only looking at the big picture because they incorporate the good of the many after all they are the humanitarians.  They can really come up with wild and big ideas that can be absolutely brilliant, but they need to come down to Earth to look more at the details to keep them on their quest.

Aquarius loves to break the barriers, to rebel to feel totally liberated so it can push us to take risks.   This is good news, it allows us to add some spice and pizazz to our life and get out of our comfort zone.  Don’t be afraid to burst out of limiting ways, Aquarius will give you the permission to be totally different and inventive.

Day 3:  PMS seems like a distant cloud now; your Oestrogen is on the rise and is known as the super power hormone.  It makes you feel optimistic, energetic and full of life, perfect time to welcome those way-out ideas and dreams of the Aquarian New Moon.   From now to day 14, your Oestrogen will only rise higher and higher.  Today is a good day to write down a major project that you’d like to accomplish in the next two weeks.

Day 14:  Ovulation is the key event in your cycle and if you are like many women, today is your day!  What this means for you is your up and down and the days to follow can bring you crashing to the ground because of your plummeting estrogen levels.  What different, radical things can you think of that would help you during this time?  It could be related to nutrition or meditation…it’s worth thinking about.

Day 15:  This day can really be tough, society focuses on PMS, but women also experience a low day or two after ovulation. The reason is right after ovulation feel-good Oestrogen crashes abruptly.  Some women can feel even more dramatic then PMS… fact, you went from super Oestrogen high to a major low within a matter of hours.   The good news is this will help you see an issue you’ve been grappling with in a new light, and a major break-through is on the horizon.

Day 19:  Few can catch the creative out of the box thinking today.  You’re able to solve problems in new and clever ways with rising progesterone and oestrogen impressing your colleagues and friends.  Today is a good day to work on a creative endeavour.
