New Moon in Aquarius, 1st February 2022 at 12 degrees. Breaking Free!
Powerful revolutionary and evolutionary forces are brewing at this New Moon, stirring up our life force and our desire for freedom, that serves as a catalyst to break with the shackles of the past. The Saturn-Uranus square that has been dominating the astrology of 2021, calling for radical change, awakening and reinvention, makes one last powerful aspect at this New Moon. Although no longer exact, this challenging aspect calls for any last changes to be made that have kept us stuck and stagnant.
Venus now direct, followed by Mercury moving direct just two days after the New Moon, give us a unique chance now, to see things from an entirely new perspective, helping us to identify how and why we have been stuck, finally enabling us to break through the chains of fear, negativity and stagnation. We can use these energies as a catalyst to initiate change and expansion in our lives.
With all Planets in direct motion from the 3rd February until the 28th April, we can let the power of this energy lend us the wings that we lack.
It’s time to leave the past behind and reinvent yourself. Celebrate your uniqueness and your individuality. It’s important to stay flexible, open to new ideas and prepare to think out of the box. The freedom to evolve and be yourself in all things and will take priority.
As the Moon renews its self, so too can we, renew and reinvent ourselves. With so much concentrated energy this is a powerful time to set our intentions. Saturn in Aquarius conjoined to the Sun and Moon is eliminating all that hinders your personal growth, teaching us to release and detach from every person, every circumstance, every condition, and every situation that no longer serves a divine purpose in our life.
“All things have a season, and all seasons must come to an end. Choose a new season, filled with purposeful thoughts and activities.”- Layanla Vanzetti
As the Saturn-Uranus square will no longer be in a challenging aspect for the rest of 2022, we will see the restrictions of the past two years begin to loosen and the shake ups give way for more calm, on a personal and collective level. We can also expect the Corona Virus and the restrictions surrounding it, slowly fade into the background in 2022.
Mercury in Aquarius retrograde, has given us the power of self-awareness and therefore more emotional intelligence, helping us to detach from and release, toxic thoughts and emotional patterns.
True freedom is freedom that comes from within.
We have awakened to the parts of ourselves that have been defined by society and the expectations of others. We have learned to recognize what no longer aligns to our true heart’s desire. All of which leads to a feeling of empowerment and knowing that we alone can take destiny into our own hands and determine the path ahead.
“When patterns are broken, new worlds emerge.”- Tuli Kupferberg.
The sign of Aquarius is known for their revolutionary qualities and we have a chance to revolutionise the way we think, live and love.
When being faced with major decisions let the truth of your free spirit guide you.
“The free soul is rare, but you know it when you see it – basically because you feel good, very good, when you are near or with them.“-Charles Bukowski
The combination of this New Moon as well as Venus and Mercury turning direct, is a wake-up call, and we may gain sudden insights, like flashes of lightning giving us fresh, new inspiring ideas about how to do things differently in the areas of our lives that have become stuck and stagnant.
Where have you gained more wisdom in your life, especially around issues of deeply ingrained emotional patterns that you may have repeated time and time again?
In what areas do you feel more emotionally secure within yourself and how have you learned to set healthier boundaries?
Saturn conjoined to the New Moon calls upon us to be more ambitious, to take better, more deliberate aim, and to accomplish something of true and lasting significance. Within and without, as we have been building stronger emotional resilience and foundations.
We feel the evolutionary push to embrace change as Uranus the ruler of the New Moon is in a tense aspect. We can feel inspired and creative and have a heightened sense of our own special uniqueness with a strong desire for self-expression of our individuality.
The tension of this powerful aspect can propel us into action while the visionary brilliance of Aquarius can help you to envision your life anew.
Every dream come true, starts with a vision. The law of attraction starts with a visualisation of our potential future.
What have you liberated yourself from and what do you need to keep on releasing and letting go in order to move forward?
Uranus in aspect to the New moon, represents freedom from our all too fixed ideas and to what we have been holding onto for too long. This can be negative thoughts, old habits or staying with people or in situations that we have out grown. Uranus teaches the gift of non-attachment. .
As we learn to practice non-attachment, we can accept what comes allowing it to leave when it’s time. Trusting that what’s meant for us will come to us effortlessly.
At this New Moon, take the time to reflect upon what you have been holding onto for too long and consciously work on releasing and letting go.
Letting go isn’t about having the courage to release the past – it’s about having the wisdom and strength to embrace the present and the person you have evolved too.
We are granted at this new moon with the serenity to accept the things we cannot change, the courage to change the things we can, and the wisdom to know the difference.
One of the most rewarding and important moments in life is the moment you finally find the courage to let go of what you can’t change. When you let go of how it “should” be, you ignite the full potential of how it CAN be from this moment forward. Happiness, then, is ultimately letting go of what you think your life is supposed to be like right now and sincerely appreciating it for everything that it is, and making the very best of it.
The Aquarian is a free spirit, where ideas of freedom, tolerance, and humanitarian values are high on their list. They seek freedom of expression and believe in living together in a brotherhood of man/women based on equality.
It’s time for Idealist and dreamers to unite. Find your tribe and come together with like-minded people, for we understand now, that we can achieve so much more by working together, than alone. That’s how we bring power to the people.
The New Moon in Aquarius reminds us that our true essence is that of a free spirit. It’s our birthright and our innate nature to be completely free. We find happiness when we have the freedom to be who we really are. True freedom starts from within.
