The new moon on February 8th at 6:38 am PST in Aquarius, is bringing some wonderful energy for us to explore! When the moon is in this sign there is an instinctual need for improvement, which could bring about a chaotic change in direction. As an added bonus, it is Chinese New Year, bringing in the year of the Monkey!
Time to explore something new and unusual. Typically, I suggest “moon” rituals that are solo, but this moon begs us to get out with some friends, do something we have never done before. Perhaps have dim sum and celebrate Chinese New Year. Basically, welcome this new moon in the company of good friends or family, catch up on each other’s lives and have some laughs.
For about a three-day period you will be open to new methods of doing things. Welcome this energy! Even if it is a chaotic change in direction, it could be just what is needed to change your paradigm. We all want change, either in our personal lives or globally, and yet typically we keep doing the same actions over and over with the result being things staying the same. It will not necessarily be easy breezy, however, if you embrace and accept the effort it takes, you will be pleased with the results down the road.
As we honor this new moon, let’s use the Aquarius energy and manifest improvement in our overall health, wealth and cheer for the rest of the year. Nothing elaborate, just a simple chat with the moon will suffice. Allow the energy of having been in good company tonight to lead the way, light a candle and simply state your intent for a year of good cheer, a year of good health, and a year of prosperous wealth. Don’t go into imagining how any of that will look, just intend it and let it go. Pour yourself a cup of tea, and enjoy the flickering flame of your candle until you are ready to head to bed.
Be open to receiving new ideas that will bring your desires into being. All that is required of you is the willingness to embrace and accept good cheer, good health, and prosperity – no matter how it comes to you.
