The New Moon in Aquarius will fall on 31 January or 1 February, depending on where you live. This is a great New Moon to think outside the box and clarify what you need to change. Communities and friends come into focus.

The New Moon in Aquarius will be happening at 12 degrees Aquarius, and it is the start of a new Lunar Year, the year of the water tiger in Chinese astrology.


The New Moon will be conjunct Saturn, the planet of commitment and solid work and co-ruler of Aquarius. Saturn spent the whole of last year arguing (in a square) with the modern ruler of Aquarius, Uranus, the planet of radical change and the unexpected.

What would you like to commit to changing this year?

This New Moon might bring some clarity on what you have been struggling to change this last year.

Is the answer you need outside your comfort zone?

With Uranus sextile (in good terms) Jupiter, the planet of expansion and luck is your chance to commit to new ways outside your comfort zone.


This New Moon in Aquarius is happening while Mercury is still retrograde. Mercury is the planet of your thinking and communication, and while in retrograde, you look at your internal communication, inner voice and mindset.

How do you talk to yourself?
Is it empowering or disempowering?
Is it helping you to believe in yourself or doubt yourself?

It is time to clear out those thoughts that keep you feeling small and unworthy and adopt a growth mindset instead.

Know that you are worth it.


Venus, the planet of love and worth, has just turned direct and will be in a pleasant conversation with Uranus (trine) and Jupiter (sextile). This will bring a lot of cosmic love to your intentions to radically change (Uranus) your beliefs (Jupiter) about your inner worth (Venus).

No one can give you a true sense of worth other than yourself.

You are worth it just because you are; There is nothing wrong with you. You are enough.

Heart’s desires

In the zodiac wheel, the sign in the opposite end of Aquarius is Leo, your heart, ruled by the Sun.

It is hard to figure out what you want with so much social conditioning.

What you want is it you or your upbringing? Your family or your friends’ wants?

Focus on what your heart tells you in the coming weeks leading up to the Full Moon in Leo, trusting that the answers will come.

The more you believe in yourself, the easier to know what you truly desire.

Setting intentions

Set intentions knowing that you are worth it and it is possible and available to you.

Remember, whatever you are doing, you are getting better and better at it every day.

New Moon ceremonies to set intentions is an ancient practice. When we consciously write down what we want, we co-create with the Universe. And in the process, we dissolve our inner resistance. It is the time of the New Moon, and the following 8-12h AFTER are the most potent hours to set intentions. Up to 3 days is ok.

Wishing you a magical Lunar Year ahead!
