On Feb. 9th at 5:59pm EST, a powerful New Moon in 20.5 degrees of Aquarius becomes exact; this is the beginning of a new Moon cycle. I also recommend you watch my video on the subject.

Please note: there are some Membership changes that went into effect on Jan. 24th with some new Membership features and some minor price changes. You can watch a brief video about those changes here.

This New Moon is also a SuperMoon — the first of three Super New Moons in a row, when the Moon is nearest to the Earth, increasing its gravitational effects on ocean tides, tectonic plates, and our emotional body. If we allow it, Super Moons can lead to significant shifts in consciousness.

Since this one occurs in Aquarius, this Super New Moon invites us to go out there and connect with “our people”– with a tribe that resonates, a cause that feels aligned with our values and our need for stability and comfort. This connection serves a larger vision for our financial future and the future of our planet, etc.

This New Moon takes place only 6 hours before the Chinese New Year begins, marking the beginning of the Year of the Yang Wood Dragon. This symbolizes vigor, charm, and strength. It also represents royalty (the Emperor), wisdom, and prosperity. Therefore, a Dragon Year brings good fortune, power, passion, and new opportunities.

The Wood year is a time for quick growth and development. There can be sudden breakthroughs and fast changes. The Wood and Dragon energy combination could be overwhelming for some of us.

Anticipate a year that is exciting, creative, and transformational. Risk-taking and forceful pursuit of our goals will yield great results. Life’s pace is fast and dynamic; anything can happen in a Dragon year. Be prepared for an unpredictable and possibly volatile year. The motto for this year could be: “Never a dull moment.”

Ask yourself: Where am I ready to take a risk? Where do I feel the calling to pursue a goal passionately? Where do I need to step outside my comfort zone for a new adventure?

Coming back to Western Astrology, until April 1st, all planets will be in forward motion. This indicates an accelerated time of manifestation — especially connected to new projects or ideas.

It will be extra important to stay focused and grounded and regularly check that we’re moving in the “right” direction.

Ask yourself: What in my life is asking for accelerated progress? What do I wish to manifest with the support of the Universe?

Here is what we will cover in connection with this Super New Moon: 

* Uranus (the planet associated with breakdowns, breakthroughs, and innovation), modern ruler of Aquarius, is currently in Taurus and still exalted in this Super New Moon chart. It will also make a powerful Square to the New Moon and a Trine to Venus in Capricorn.

* Saturn (the planet associated with building sustainable structures), the traditional ruler of Aquarius, is currently in Pisces and is still in a Sextile to Jupiter in Taurus (due to Jupiter’s Station and Retrograde phases, this has been going on since Dec. 7th of last year)

Venus is part of a planetary Line-up (Stellium) that includes Mars in CapricornPluto in Aquarius, and Mercury in Aquarius.

This will also be Pluto’s first New Moon since changing signs from Capricorn to Aquarius on Jan. 20th — and the New Moon will also be in the same sign as Pluto.

With all this, we are being asked to be extra-mindful about connecting to our physical reality (our body, our finances, and the planet) in an innovative and unique manner.

We are also being asked to bring integrity and maturity to our connections with others, to our collaboration, and to be extra conscious about how we interact with others: choosing Love over fear, whenever we can. More about all of this and more below…

Let’s first talk a little bit about Aquarius and what this energy represents before jumping into the aspects of this Super New Moon chart:

The highest vibration of Aquarius is to experience unity in diversity — to know ourselves as both an individual and an integral member of the human race. It’s a place where we…

Do you have your Ascendant (or any personal planets) in 18-23 degrees of Aquarius, Leo, Taurus, or Scorpio? If so, you may feel the effects of this New Moon more strongly. This is also true for those of us who have our Ascendant or Sun-sign in Leo or Cancer (the Sun rules Leo; the Moon rules Cancer).

Finally, let’s talk “New Moon Intentions… The New Moon is the best time to set some powerful intentions for this month’s Moon cycle; this is best done soon after the New Moon becomes exact and not during a Moon void of Course phase.

There will be a Moon VoC starting with the New Moon on Feb. 9th, which means we are best off waiting until the next day to set our intentions.

That means that this month, the best time and most potent time to set intentions would be any time between 8:42am on Feb. 10th and 5:59pm on Feb. 11th – (New York Time/US Eastern Time)

If you live in a timezone other than EST (US East Coast) and converting time zones isn’t your thing, I suggest joining my Facebook page, following me on Twitter or Instagram. I will post reminders to let you know when to set your New Moon intentions.

**We will also have another Soulivity Today Morning Show: “Hot Astrology Topics” coming up, on Feb. 16th at 8am EST. Watch our show live via Youtube (or later as a recording), or if you live in California, you can listen in via KMET Radio (98.1FM) at 8am PST.

==> I will be interviewed the lovely Brian Westley Johnson, and I will give a preview about what to expect for February with Venus making a powerful connection to Pluto in Aquarius on the 17th and Chiron to the North Node in Aries on the 19th!
