Aquarius New Moon & Imbolc
Updated: Feb 17, 2022
We hope you had a lovely Aquarian New Moon on Monday (31st) and have had time to set some intentions for the coming season ~ Spring is only six weeks away (44 days to be exact), and we are creating visions for the future, as we imagine what we want this coming year to hold. We are SO excited to announce our Valentine's Day offering & the collaborations that are lining up for this coming Spring. We will make several announcements soon, so stay tuned for our newsletters! (You can sign up via our home page; bottom right corner).
Back to our focus on Aquarius ~ this New Moons energy is all about clearing out the old - both clutter physically, and mentally, to create space for stillness. Clearing the mind of limited beliefs and doubt, to expand awareness into a more abundant mindset for new perspectives to be possible, is a key aspect of what can be achieved from the energies coming forth with this new moon cycle. Bigger brighter horizons, with new opportunities, will be supported by the harmonious alignment between Uranus and Jupiter. Uranus is the planet of awakening, and Jupiter carries expansive/lucky energies - these signify that the general energies that will be available during the entire month of February are conducive to growth, progress and forward momentum in our endeavors.
Another place to lend some attention to during this moon cycle, will be the influence of Saturn. There is opportunity for growth and success, but through hard lessons. Challenges and obstacles could arrive with this New Moon, and simultaneously we will be provided the stamina to move through. And on the other side of it, Saturn leaves rewards when it brings forth lessons to our lives that we take the time to learn. Taking charge of this energy and using it to persevere is the best choice. Making long-term commitments, now that both Venus and Mercury have stationed direct, will be fully supported. It is the perfect time to get clear on what you want and need, what you need to do to get there and holding trust in the process.

We have been sharing with each Moon Cycle - both New & Full - the qualities, associations and herbal allies for the cycle. You can use this information to find balance for yourself, reflecting upon where you may have imbalance, integrate the information and implement change through conscious action, to balance oneself out during and beyond the cycle. The idea in short, is that each cycle has energetic qualities to it that infuse the time frame that is unfolding within each sign, carrying different elemental effects. We share both herbal solutions, and action oriented healing practices that will aid in restoring alignment.
This information applies to both Aquarius sun signs, but also to others. Some may find that (if imbalanced) they REALLY need the recommended guidance. It may be more dominant for some than others, depending on where Aquarius falls in your chart, what it is aspecting and how dominant of a force it is for you as an individual. Enjoy!
