New Moon in Aquarius
Friday, January 24th at 4:42 pm ET we welcome the New Moon in Aquarius. It’s the first new moon of 2020 and coming off the heels of our first Full Moon and a Lunar Eclipse...you can bet it’s going to pack a punch. New Moons are known for bringing in new energy and fresh opportunities for the next 28 days. That being said, it’s best to focus your energy on making a fresh start or turning over a new leaf in any area of your life that needs some fine-tuning.
This New Moon is supercharging our awareness and could bring some deep revelations about ourselves and the world around us. Take some time to reflect in the areas where you feel stuck or stagnant. You may find yourself questioning old habits, behaviors, and beliefs as you search for new and inventive ways to make progress. Be open to what the Universe brings you during this time - you might be surprised at the paths presented to you...but if you trust, you could end up exactly where you need and want to be. It’s time to shake the dust off of our hearts and minds and take our first step into manifesting the life we desire.
Now let’s dive into what these energies mean...
New Moon in Aquarius Aspects
Aquarius is represented by the water bearer, the mystical healer who bestows water, or life, on the land. It’s open-minded, full of inspiration, and the most humanitarian sign of the zodiac. As such, we’re encouraged to exhibit flexibility, caution, restraint, and common sense in our interactions with others.
Astrology King notes that because this New Moon in Aquarius is square Uranus, we may experience unexpected changes, unpredictable behavior, and crazy mood swings. The fixed star, Dabih, is said to make these matters worse with crises and more crazy or out of character behavior. Yikes. Of course, this could cause some uncertainty, anxiety, and insecurity for some. Be prepared for you and others to overreact to these changes and try to show compassion where you can.
We know that sounds like a lot, however, there are some very positive aspects that we can take advantage of. The Fixed star Dabih also offers patience, wealth, success, trust, and faith. If you can keep your mind focused and your emotions stable, you’ll be able to react quickly and decisively to changing conditions to find wealth, success, and true love. Should we be able to remain calm and collected, Venus sextile Jupiter promises to reward us with good luck, love, and money. See? Good news after all!
Trusting your instincts and reacting quickly to changing conditions will be crucial under this New Moon in Aquarius. It’s time to really feel into the frequency that we’re carrying and emitting because this is what shapes and defines our world around us. As we work to expand our consciousness we commit to developing a deeper understanding of ourselves and our place in this world. Remember, you are an energetic being with a full spectrum of vibrations so it’s important that you watch your thoughts and your feelings. Look at your relationships to find out what the world is mirroring back to you. It can provide insight into our shadow side and things that we may need to change about ourselves in order to ascend to the next level of evolution. Do the people you surround yourself with have similar goals and dreams? Do they encourage you? It’s time to move towards people who share in your vision.
Aquarius Season will help you see the big picture which will serve as a wonderful tool as we chart our path towards our dreams. Now is the time to start understanding what that means for you and how to cultivate a frequency that will help manifest those dreams.
Third Eye Chakra
Because this New Moon in Aquarius calls for us to better understand our own vibration, we urge you to tune into your Third Eye Chakra so we can adjust our vibration in accordance with our highest vision for our lives.
The Third Eye chakra is our sixth chakra and is located between the eyebrows just above the base of the nose. We like to think of this chakra as the bridge between your soul and the Universe. It allows us to tap into both our inner and outer worlds through our inner guidance system or intuition. When open and in balance, we have the ability to see our lives with clarity and possess strong intuition, insight, and self-awareness.
LonerWorlf notes that if our Third Eye chakra is imbalanced, we could struggle with issues including anxiety, depression, paranoia, negativity, or other mental illnesses and mood disorders. If you feel like you're battling any of the above issues, your Third Eye could be out of balance. Since this chakra is key when making new plans, we’ve put together the following ritual to keep you aligned with your inner north star.
New Moon & Third Eye Chakra Ritual
To begin this New Moon in Aquarius ritual, make sure that you have 10-20 minutes of uninterrupted quiet time for yourself.
- Find yourself in a comfortable seated position with your spine straight and your shoulders up and back
- Grab your favorite Kailo Third Eye Chakra product and rub the oil or body butter into your hands.
- Close your eyes while directing your energy and attention to the area between your eyebrows. Inhale the aroma from your hands as you connect with your Third Eye.
- Begin to deepen your breath and with each inhale, imagine a deep, indigo glowing light expanding around your third eye center. As you exhale, watch it decrease in size and then grow bigger and brighter with each inhale.
Once you’re settled into a good rhythm, repeat the following mantra: I am connected to my higher self. I know that I am always guided. I make decisions with ease and grace. I accept and trust the path I am on. My intuition is my guide. OM.
- (OM is the bija mantra for the third eye chakra, so feel free to chant it more than once and really draw it out!)
- Repeat the mantra as often as you want.
- Once you feel this is complete, release your eyes, release any control over your breath, stop the mantra and rest for a few moments.
If you’re on the go, you can always use our Third Eye Oil Essence as you recite the following affirmations.
Third Eye Chakra Affirmations:
- I am in touch with my inner guidance.
- I listen to my deepest wisdom.
- I seek to understand and to learn from my life experiences.
- I am wise, intuitive, and connected with my inner guide.
- I nurture my spirit.
- I listen to the wisdom of elders.
- I trust my intuition.
- I forgive the past and learn what was there for me to learn.
We hope these rituals and tools help you manifest all that your heart and soul desire.
To You. From Us. With Love.
