“The first New Moon of the year is making an impact–Falling in the sign of Aquarius on January 24th, this New Moon may bring abrupt change or a sense of unease that we are likely to have felt brewing this week leading up to it.
This is because just a few days before, on January 22nd, the Sun and Uranus got into a tense alignment known as a square, which is then further triggered on the New Moon.
Uranus is ruled by Aquarius and is the planet of change and awakening, but the changes we feel on this New Moon are more likely to be emotional ones.”
As I always say, upset is access and any emotional upheaval you may be feeling as a result of the cosmic events of the week are an opportunity to gain new insights into what your heart truly desires.
You would change nothing for the better unless you were uncomfortable. Any upsetting emotions you are feeling–anxiety, anger, frustration, overwhelm, guilt, and sadness–are all helpful signs from your body that something happening in your life is NOT in alignment with your heart’s desires. Consistently ignoring these signs and subjugating these emotions can cause your body to express them in more intense, nagging ways like pain or dis-ease. So, it is very important to listen to what your body and emotions are trying to tell you now, before your body feels it needs to express its discontent in a more extreme way.
Tonight, I invite you to use the power of this Aquarius New Moon and feel into what your emotions are trying to teach you–How to tap into the abundance of love and energy present in your own heart and allow it to guide you.
