New Moon January 28 2017

January 28 2017

The New Moon in Aquarius occurs at 00:06 (UT) on the 28th January 2017 at 8 Degrees. At the New Moon in Aquarius, there’s a drive towards planting seeds for the future. Aquarius is a cool, objective sign, given to friendly detachment and occasionally downloads of cosmic inspiration. A need to stand strong and think outside the box will be highlighted. It’ll likely come out strongest in our relationship dynamics.

To help us along, courage will be readily available. A turning point will be happening alongside this New Moon. Mars, the planet of courage, will be operating in the 29th degree of Pisces which indicates an important turning point. The New Moon makes no major aspects to other planets but sits around the midpoint of Venus and Saturn’s square, semi-square to both. Meanwhile, modern Aquarius ruler Uranus is still opposing Jupiter and squaring Pluto so the urge to develop and reform are powerful. Most importantly, it may be a shift of perspective more than anything else that makes you interpret your experience differently, which in turn opens up alternative solutions. Venus in Pisces is soft, dreamy, romantic, idealistic. Saturn in Sagittarius is constructing borders, narrowing vision, defining destinations and insisting on a realistic approach to expansion. The natural exuberance of Sagittarius is toned down. Another underlying theme in this New Moon is about how we deal with loneliness and being alone. Aquarius likes its space but with Venus square to Saturn, some may feel unsupported by loved ones, especially if you are looking to go in a significant new direction.

The January 2017 New Moon will also coincide with the Chinese New Year – the Year of the Fire Rooster. It officially begins on January 28th, 2017 (the day the New Moon occurs in Asia) and brings a firey “show off” kind of energy onto the scene. The celebration will extend until the Full Moon on February 11th, 2017 (which will be an eclipse!) and close out with the spectacular Lantern Festival. This January New Moon will highlight the place in our lives where we are being pushed to think differently or take on a new perspective.

The Year of the Rooster will be a powerful one, with no middle of the road when it comes to moving forward. This year, impressions count. You’ll want to look your best and be clear on your intentions concerning love, money, and business. Stick to practical and well-proven paths to ensure success, rather than risky ventures. In a Rooster Year, all of the Chinese animals can reap great rewards by tapping into Rooster traits. Loyalty, commitment, hard work, family values, and top-notch appearances are just some of the characteristics that will be rewarded this year.

There’s an inherent toughness to this Aquarius New Moon and whilst it’s uncomfortable, we all have a chance to embrace our own unique talents, views and ideas in order to open up fresh vistas for the year ahead.
