The new moon in Aquarius is here to inspire us to look towards the future and let our unique ideas and individualism shine. Aquarius is unique, innovative, intellectual, and forward-thinking. Aquarian energy craves freedom, equality, and radical ideas to solve traditional problems. Intellectual by nature, Aquarius has no qualms about letting their creative side dominate to show the world how one of a kind it truly is. Along with the moon, there are five other celestial bodies that will be in the sign of Aquarius, making this Aquarian energy especially potent. Here are some things you can focus on to set some powerful new moon intentions.
BREAK THE STATUS QUO
Aquarians loves to stand out in a crowd. They are unique thinkers who don't follow the status quo and they want you to know it! Being uniquely themselves is one of the key traits of Aquarian energy. To keep it simple, GET WEIRD. This is your chance to dig into your authentic self and find what sets you apart from others. Your quirks, interests, hobbies, and preferences that may not fall within "the norm" are what make you YOU! If you struggle with or reject aspects of yourself that don't "fit the mold" of who you think you should be, set some intentions around embracing and reclaiming aspects of yourself that you have traditionally rejected.
PUSH THE BOUNDARIES
Aquarius is known for being progressive, innovative, and creative problem solvers. This Aquarius new moon will inspire you to reach beyond the bounds of your imagination. First and foremost, now is the time to be very honest with yourself and your needs. Once you have an intention in mind, spend time analyzing all sides of it. Think of different and unconventional ways to approach the task at hand.
Maybe you've been working hard on setting the same or similar new moon intentions moon cycle after moon cycle and you don't feel like you've made much progress. This is your chance to break the mold and think outside of the box. What can you be doing differently that still supports your intentions? There's a whole world to explore just off the beaten path that is ripe for the taking if you're willing to change your mindset and explore the unknown.
CONNECTION + THE COLLECTIVE
One of Aquarius' defining traits is the progressive work they do for humanitarianism and the collective at large. Freedom, independence, equality, and social justice are key themes of Aquarius. When setting your intentions, think about how you can use your unique gifts to make a difference in the world. Spend time thinking about the world you want to live in and what you can do within your means to support this dream. With injustice, racism, inequality, and division being in the spotlight for the last year, there are many things you can do and causes you can support during this moon cycle. I should mention that this is work you should be doing all the time, not just when a new moon supports it. Use this new moon energy to amplify the social work you are already doing.
Aquarius is also a known social butterfly who loves to collaborate with others to discuss intellectual topics. Consider your inner social circles. Do the friends and collaborators in your life have similar ideals? Do these relationships support you and your dreams? If not, it may be time to re-evaluate your relationships so they are more in line with your values.
