We are in the first moon cycle of the year - and the decade - with the New Moon in Aquarius arriving on Friday, January 24th, 2020 at approximately 4:44 pm EST. 

Curious about what this new moon brings? Here are 5 ways to honour the New Moon in Aquarius.


The New Moon in Aquarius is a great time to connect with your friends and social circles. Aquarius has a real sense of like-minded people gathering for a common purpose. It is a time for honouring and finding your tribe.


The new moon in Aquarius is a time to detach from our emotions. Release and let go during this new moon. As an air sign, Aquarians tend to live a lot in their own heads. When we detach from our emptions, it allows us to be more pragmatic and logical in our decision making.


During the new moon in Aquarius, it is important to check in to ensure you are allowing yourself the space to just be you. Let go of conventions that say you must be a certain way. Set boundaries with those around you who have certain expectations that don’t fit with your truth.  Embrace your real self, weird bits and all.  


Harness the energy of the New Moon in Aquarius to come up with a new idea or solidify an idea already in the works. Aquarius is all about looking ahead to the future. If you feel stuck in a rut, this is the time of year to acknowledge it and find ways to move forward.


A great time to make a charitable donation is when the New Moon in Aquarius is taking place. The energy of this moon is all about the betterment of society and it’s a good time for us to contribute to that. You may also feel included to include a wish for world peace or the good of someone outside of yourself in your new moon wishes.

Lunar New Year

The New Moon in Aquarius also marks the Lunar New Year and 2020 welcomes the year of the rat. The rat symbolizes fertility and abundance. Recent birth years include 1924, 1936, 1948, 1960, 1972, 1984, 1996, and 2008. People born during the year of the rat are believed to be intelligent, creative, and adaptable, sensitive, and kind.  They also have the ability to form strong social bonds which is especially useful during this new moon of social connection.
