The New Moon in Aquarius (Monday, February 8th) signals new beginnings around friendship, networks, groups, connectivity, and how those relate to long-term plans and big dreams. Aquarius has a humanitarian bent, and its genius and creativity work toward solutions that serve the collective.
What dreams and plans for the future have been surfacing in your thoughts in the past few days? How can you bring some intentionality to to these? How can you bring your dreams down to earth, and make them real?
This next couple weeks is the single best time this whole year to take action, and start moving your dreams forward. With Mercury now direct (although still in the shadow of its retrograde), and Mars entering its retrograde shadow soon, there is a window in which the energy supports action, initiation, beginning, connection, plans, movement.
