New Moon in Aquarius
This New Moon in Aquarius asks us to set some intentions around how we can expand our dreams and use the clean slate to focus on new projects.
January was a long and exhausting month, with great highlights but also big endings. Frankly, it was exhausting. We should all be excited to see not only a new month start but one with a New Moon in Aquarius. It’s arriving just in time.
Aquarius is one of my favorite signs. Every Aquarius I have ever met is unique and beautiful. They are wicked smart and seem as if they live on earth but at the same time take up space in the greater Universe.
This New Moon is no different. It’s connected to home but also to the greater world and your biggest dreams.
I am so ready for this New Moon. January graced me with my first Full Moon dinner which was beautiful and exciting and then the same week, I closed my office, which was sad and necessary. You could say that January sure delivered when it came to emotional energy. I have needed and wanted to close my office for a while but it’s always a shock when something ends. I’ve also decided to only make products on a small scale. I will hand make each product specifically for individuals, which allows me to put my full magic into the product and for my customer to know that it is unique and truly magical. There will be no more than one product at a time. I also switched coaching clients to Skype sessions only. This became a necessity after my illness, and I soon realized that my office no longer carried the energy I needed. I have been working on creating my home into a dream space where I can work, live, heal and grow. Leaving home to go to my office became a burden and so it was time to let go (Hello, KonMari method). Plus, my office had no kitchen and since cooking has become such a large part of my journey, the space just did not have what I needed. So I let it go while I embraced these changes. This allows for the clean slate that this New Moon requests of us.
A Clean Slate
In Latin the phrase ‘tabula rasa’ means a clean tablet, document or slate. When people spoke Latin, these items were used for inscribing words. The phrase has come to signify the complete and open possibility of the future. What are we ready to put on our clean and empty slate? Did you use last month to create this clean slate or are you just getting started? Luckily, this New Moon embraces all parts of the journey and you can use this energy to decide what you need to put on this clean slate. Could it be words or thoughts around your career or job? Are you ready to take steps? Or are you perhaps further along in this journey and have already started to fill in slate. Get specific about what you want to put into this area? Get specific.
This New Moon also happens to rule travel, international affairs, media and philosophical areas. If you can, now is the time to start mapping out that world trip you have always wanted to take. It’s time to book that flight to Australia so you can write your book. It’s time to go on the volunteer trip to help others. Maybe it’s time to write that book proposal or capture the start of your idea. It is now time to create your international marketing plan or to take that job in another country and experience a new way of living.
This New Moon is also a great time to look at new ways of being in our bodies. Are you ready to detox from sugar? Are you ready to give up foods that hurt you and learn what helps your body? Are you ready to see food as healing? We want to set some intentions around healing and helping our bodies to function better. Maybe you should start that celery juice routine, or try eating Kiwis daily to help with blood sugar. Why not create some magical salads to nourish your body this month and begin to change into the next season. Do all of this with the intention of love and healing. You deserve it.
Ritual for a Clean Slate
This month we are going to use visuals to set our intentions. You can create a physical vision board if you want, or a Power Point deck with images you find online or you can tag me on Instagram or connect with me on Pinterest so you can share your ideas and images with me. I will be creating my dream board on Pinterest since I want to play with my vision and love the idea of pictures I can share. Whatever feels right to you is the goal. Write down your intentions for this New Moon and then choose images that connect with them. Push deeper to only show images that specifically connect with your intentions.
I am working on visualizing myself spending time in Australia. One of my oldest and best friends lives there and I want to go spend some quality time with her. We first met in high school and quickly became fast friends. She even traveled with me to California to spend time with my family. I would like to have an extended visit with her doing rituals, cooking with her and experiencing life down under while I continue to plan the evolution of my company. I would also love to connect with my readers there. This is something I have been turning over in my mind and coming to realize it as a desire of mine. Now the time has come to create a vision board.
What will your vision board look like? What part of your dream might include traveling? Are you like my friend that has a dream of one day living in Japan and starting his own video game company? Are you working towards creating your vision? Do you feel ready and confident enough to dream?
I would love to see your vision so I can help hold it with you. Spend some time creating these beautiful visions and then let them go into the Universe. Let’s see how they start to manifest in your life. It may happen quickly, or it may take years. Be open to the timeline. Just know we are putting these visions out there and then slow down enough to see the synchronicity.
Have a beautiful New Moon!
