The New Moon falls on the 11th of February (19:06 GMT) with the moon joining the pile up of Sun, Jupiter, Saturn, Venus AND Mercury retrograde in Aquarius (phew!). The Aquarius stellium is also squaring off against Mars and Uranus in Taurus.
The change that we have been resisting, on both a whole world scale and in our individual lives, is coming. Time to recalibrate, shed the dead stuff, breathe in the new possibilities.
“Pain in this life is not avoidable, but the pain we create avoiding pain is avoidable.”
― R.D. Laing
Divination/ Journalling Prompts
*How do I currently approach change? *How can I embrace change? *What change do I need to welcome now? (don’t be freaked out of you get the death card here, 99.9% of the time it’s a metaphor – but heed that metaphor) *How does a recalibrated me look/ think/ feel/ do? (you can take a card for each, or one card to represent the whole recalibrated you)
Ritual/ Spellwork/ EveryDayMagic Suggestions
*Purification ritual, a smoke bath using incense would be Aquarius appropriate *Burn and release spell work (which is exactly what it sounds like, more info on how that might look here) *Creating space for change, and new ways coming in, by doing the mundane time management type stuff
The new moon lands in Aquarius (Jan 24th, 21:42 GMT) joined by the Sun (obviously) and Mercury. The planets are shifting signs and the pressure is starting to ease. Change is still the main theme, as it has been all month, but it is starting to feel more doable, more acceptable.

This would be a good time to find the others. But not at the expense of (your) truth. That is probably not an oxymoron.
“A group experience takes place on a lower level of consciousness than the experience of an individual. This is due to the fact that, when many people gather together to share one common emotion, the total psyche emerging from the group is below the level of the individual psyche. If it is a very large group, the collective psyche will be more like the psyche of an animal, which is the reason why the ethical attitude of large organizations is always doubtful. The psychology of a large crowd inevitably sinks to the level of mob psychology. If, therefore, I have a so-called collective experience as a member of a group, it takes place on a lower level of consciousness than if I had the experience by myself alone.”
― C.G. Jung, The Archetypes and the Collective Unconscious
