Hello beautiful souls!
Love is in the air… and so is February’s new moon!
February is filled with many things: the sabbat of Imbolc, Aquarian New Moon energies, Mars, and Venus dancing as usual, a Full Snow Moon…and, of course, V’Day. The New Moon in Aquarius rises on Friday, February 9th at 6PM ET/3PM PT) just a few days before Valentines’ Day.
According to the Chinese Zodiac, we now enter the Year of the Dragon ushering in not only a fierce awakening but one of the most anticipated astrological events-
Pluto, a planet that spends 12 to 31 years in each zodiac sign, has moved into Aquarius. This transit is rare and significant as the last time Pluto was in Aquarius was in the late 18th century. The planet moved into Aquarius on January 20th and will remain there until September 1st, take a brief hiatus, and then return on November 19th, where it will stay until March 8, 2043. This shift is expected to bring about significant changes and opportunities for growth and transformation in various aspects of life.
What impact will this have? We can already feel the electricity surging around us! There will be a call for change- revolution, innovation, independence, and humanitarianism are Aquarian themes. Pluto tends to raze and rebuild the areas it transits. Overhauls are always necessary, so it’s best to just get on board. Here is where Kali comes in. Her presence in your life might feel dramatic or extreme at times, but in the end, you will be born anew. With Aquarius and Pluto one thing’s for sure: It is time to focus on how we can use our unique talents and perspectives to make a positive impact on the world around us and in our own lives.
Are YOU ready to embrace the magic of Aquarius? The fact that this New Moon is also a supermoon may enhance intuition and awaken the fire within.
This is the perfect opportunity to let go of the past and open yourself up to a new chapter in your life. Air signs can help you access deeper levels of consciousness, allowing you to express your authentic self. This month of love let's start a revolution of the heart by practicing self-love and deepening our connection with ourselves. Let's embrace the magic of the Aquarius New Moon and supermoon to awaken the fire within and enhance our intuition.
We are the healers needed for this new world. It is time to follow the beat of your own drum. To BE unique. To BE original. To BE who you really are…. To love your weird self. The change you want to see in the world begins with you. Change your mind and you change your life and those around you. A whole new world can open to you if you choose to take the leap into the unknown!”
In honor of the New Moon & V-day celebrate this month of love with some New Moon Rituals with a twist of love.
Self-Love Bath- It’s said that at this time the waters of the holy river Ganga become like nectar, and taking a bath or offering prayers into water is highly auspicious.
Water symbolically washes away the old. Fill a sachet with lavender flowers and rose petals. As tub is filling, add 1/2 cup Pink Himalayan Salt (infused with your favorite potion) directly to the bathwater. When tub is filled, drop sachet into bath water to steep while you soak. Light a candle and turn the lights out. Focus on what you would like to manifest and what you would like to release. Get specific. Breathe deep. Soak in the New Moon energy.
Drawing Down the Moon Goddess
Stand and raise your arms above your head. Let your palms face each other and curve slightly toward the moon. Feel as though you’re a sacred chalice, drawing the power of Mother Moon into every cell of your being—from your toes to your womb, to your breasts, to your jaw, and your eyes. Feel the pleasure of this energy. It is vibrant with the power to give, to receive, to nurture life, and manifest what is possible.
Draw your hands to your heart. Massage this area. Like the moon, dance with the rhythms of life as the Goddess that you truly are. When you are ready, bring your hands to your sides, palms facing the earth. Send your divine light deep into the earth. Blessed be.
