February 8 welcomes in the second New Moon of the year in the sign of Aquarius, as well as the start of the Chinese New Year and the year of the Yang Fire Monkey.
As most of you know, a New Moon is the perfect time to initiate, plan and manifest your highest dreams, desires and wishes, however this New Moon is a little different.
The energy of this New Moon is more about allowing and accepting the winds of change into your life. Rather than plotting what you want to happen, this New Moon requires you to embrace the energies of the Universe and to simply remain open to the many possibilities.
Sometimes when we align ourselves with the power of the Universe, our life can change and shift in ways beyond what we could imagine for ourselves.
One of the ways to align yourself to receiving the highest good during this New Moon, is to fully release and let go of all the baggage that is weighing you down.
Thoughts, emotions and feelings that have become heavy and are blocking you from moving forward, lower your vibration and make it very hard for you to embrace positive change.
Using the energy of this New Moon, work on releasing these burdening thoughts by accepting and journeying within to discover what pains you need to heal. Sometimes it is through accepting your situation or situations of the past, that allow you to really pave the way for healing.
Because Aquarius is represented by the water carrier, it is important that our emotions (water) is fully released before we can welcome in a fresh new start.
Being an air sign, Aquarius energy is also eclectic and this New Moon will help you to think outside the box and how you can best be of service to others.
Aquarian energy supports uniqueness, truly being yourself and standing up for what you believe is right.
To fully embrace the energy of this New Moon, don’t be afraid to let your true self shine without the influence of the ego.
When you fully align with your soul and embrace all that you are, your energy and light becomes a force that can truly help others.
Aquarius energy also rules innovation, which also makes this New Moon the perfect time to buy electronics, a new gadget, a car or launch something in the technology or entrepreneurial space.
Uranus, the planet of change and unpredictability also features strongly during this New Moon, however in order for these changes to be fully received, an internal shift may have to happen first.
Trying to change your life when your internal environment has not yet shifted, can be a fruitless exercise that eventually just leads you back to the same place that you started out from.
This is why it is important to use the energy of this New Moon to make internal shifts first, before you can really go ahead and manifest any external ones.
February’s New Moon truly kickstarts what is set out to be an amazing month. Using its energy, this New Moon can help you to embrace your direction for 2016 and to pave the way for a strong year ahead.
