Aquarius New Moon – Newborn

The Aquarius New Moon on February 4th bears optimistic, generous and philosophical energies. As Aquarius is the free-spirited rebel, this New Moon brings everything you need to set your intentions for a fresh headstart into a life full of freedom and self-expression.

Aquarius New Moon – Humanitarian Rebels

This New Moon, the airy qualities of Aquarius carry a lot of fresh winds into our lives. We crave for renewal, we want to shed old skin, so we can feel free and stay true to our inner callings. Freedom and individualism are typical aquarian topics. These energies can show you in what aspects of your life you are stuck and need some new perspectives on things. Also, this New Moon gives you the opportunity to express yourself truly and freely. Go for the things that bring you joy. Aquarius is a Chameleon and likes to change, to be innovative. Don’t be shy. We are all unique diamonds with our own way to shine.

As much self-expression is important within the Aquarian energies, as important is the social complex. Connecting with like-minded is refreshing and nurturing but you should also explore how you feel concerning society/community. The Aquarian nature is to be humanitarian, to bring change for the benefit of mankind. How could you contribute? Every small step is important!

Spiritual Growth & Manifesting Visions

There are some good aspects adding up to this New Moon constellation. New Moon trine Jupiter calls for social gatherings, having fun and enjoying life. Be generous to yourself and others!

Moreover, New Moon conjunct Mercury gives us a boost in our logical thinking that can help us to keep an objective eye on what we are going to do next. Being the martyr isn’t helping anyone. The Aquarian energies on their shadow side tend to bring distance into relationships if you feel attacked or constrained. Instead of blind rebellion think through what other possibilities you have to overcome differences or to bring balance.

Also, the Aquarius New Moon takes place exactly between Saturn sextile Neptune. Both planets are in their home-signs and this constellation gives us a boost to bring our dreams into reality. Neptune represents our dreams, visions and best qualities while Saturn represents structure, wisdom and planning. Break your goals down into little steps and follow them. Stick to the little things, celebrate every win and over time the Universe will give you for what you have asked.

How to Work with the Energies

New Moons are perfect to set new intentions for the coming moon cycle. You should definitely meet some likeminded people around this New Moon, because this could give you some very interesting new input and perspectives. But yet take some time to ground and set your intentions for the path you wanna walk. These questions can help you to tune in with the New Moon vibe:

  • Do I balance my intuition and logical thinking when it comes to decision making? On what side could I work to bring more balance?
  • Do outside events trigger/influence me easily? Do I use these situations/feelings as guidance or do I feel negative about them? What triggers me/makes me feel uncomfy? Can I dive deeper and explore what is hidden beneath these feelings?
  • What things in my life are running in circles? Where am I stuck in old patterns? What was my “old behaviour”? What other possibilities do I have to react and create more positive experiences for myself?
  • What type of person do I want to be? How do I envision my “highest self”? What is my version of a perfect world?
  • How can I help and support others? How can I contribute to make the world a better place?
  • Do I give without any conditions or expectations? Do I stick to my own ethics/morals?
  • What are my talents? What things do I enjoy? What steps can I take to bring my dreams and visions into life?
  • What is freedom to me?

On the mat: The sign of Aquarius is connected to the lower legs and veins. Everything that reverses the blood flow is here beneficial. From easy inversions like viparita karani or downward-facing dog to more advanced ones like headstand, choose as you like. The warrior sequence is nice to cultivate concentration and focus and you can combine your intentions into your practice here. Use them like mantras. Don’t forget to ground yourself and still the mind, so practice some seated forward folds with extended legs, hip-openers if you like and go for some minutes of breathing meditation.

Shedding Old Skin

I hope this New Moon you can find the courage to bring your light to the stage and let it shine brightly. Gather with your tribe, establish supportive relationships and express yourself without minding what others might think. Staying in the box prevents growth and is kinda boring. Outside there are endless opportunities that want to be explored. Go for them.

I wish you a happy Aquarius New Moon,

Lots of Love, Namaste ❤ 🙂

Capricorn New Moon – Setting Intentions

On January 6th, 2019, there will be a partial solar eclipse/New Moon in Capricorn. This is the day when the mystical “12 days after Christmas” or “Rauhnächte” end. The time between the years is over, the gap to the mystical realms widens again. This first New Moon of the new year is ideal to put some intentions out into the Universe for a magnificent year 2019!

Team Meeting in the Sign of Capricorn

The new moon constellation is settled directly between Saturn and Pluto and Mercury resides in Capricorn too.

Capricorn is known to be good at planning and organizing and business/career is a topic here. What are your dreams and what can you bring to the table? From there, what are your next steps? All the transformations from last year showed the idea of a path you could walk on. Now it’s time to pack your backpack wisely. Saturn adds some extra seriousness to the pot but smoothing energies are just around the corner. Mercury enhances the ability to put some logic into our planning and helps to communicate clearly which direction you have to go.

Sweet-Sour Side-Dish and Dessert of Choice

The energies at the beginning of this new year give us excited and optimistic feels. With all this new energy pouring in we could easily lose our mind which way to go. Neptun in Aries trine Mercury sends innovative and pioneering energy but with Mars in Aries square Mercury this could lead to over-impulsive decisions or just an overload of projects to run after. There are a lot of shiny new ideas but listen closely to the voice within, it tells you which ones are the diamonds you should go after. Neptune sextile Capricorn New Moon brings a lighter, sweeter note to the energy mix. We’re fueled from within, we just have to let it out purely. Also, Neptune gives us a boost in creativity & sensitivity which helps to create plans from within.

In this a-bit-of-everything mix, it’s important to clarify what is the fuel behind your goals. Is it personal growth or just the need to gather more material things? Is there a hole inside yourself that you just want to fill or is there something inside yourself which you want to bring to life? The world is in a critical state and we should overthink the status quo and ask ourselves what is REALLY important to us.

How to Work with the Energies

The energies around this New Moon bring a lot of fresh new winds and with a little bit of effort and structure you can fly high this year.

Off the mat: Practice gratitude. Even if you have it done already, again, practice gratitude. Let go of all grief, negativity and competition from last year and give thanks to every experience. See them as teachers. You are always at the right place at the right time doing the right thing. Then, work with these questions:

  • What are my dreams and wishes for the coming 12 months?
  • What is the intention behind every wish or dream? Which things truly resonate with the life I want to live and the person I want to be? And what is just stuff that’s not deeply needed? Go for the inner callings, not trends. Travel with light but important baggage.
  • What are my abilities and talents? How can they help me on my way? How can I nurture and expand them?
  • What are some new things I want to experience?
  • What are first mini-steps to make my dreams come true?

On the mat: The sign of Capricorn is associated with the knees but even more general with all the bigger joints in the body. Flexibility is the working field here. Find a balance here between flexibe but strong muscles that support you in the best way. Asanas like the warrior series are nice (they also give a lot of focus), trikonasana, side plank, tree pose, garudasana and stretches for the wrists.

Meditate. Create peace of mind before you fall into crazy planning. Remember you don’t have to set out the master plan that’s waterproof. The stillness of the mind bears a lot of answers. Get a clear vision that comes from within. This will show you the way. Trust in the process.

Happy New Year 2019

May this year be full of blessings. May this year be the year of change. Change towards more love, fun, togetherness, lust for life, adventure, friendship, equality and justice. I wish you all the best experience on your way and the energy to handle whatever the universe may serve you. The outlook is positive. Fall in love with yourself, with others, with life. Then stay there.

Happy New Year 2019!

Hari om, Namaste ❤
