Hidden Insights: 22 January 2017The New Moon in Aquarius arrives this Friday, 27 January 2017. It’s forming a sextile to Mars, which is still in Pisces.

Aquarius is already a very individualistic energy. It’s eccentric and tends to be drawn towards the new or unusual. New Moons mark personal beginnings in our own journeys and evolutions. They are doorways through which we can move, and portals through which we can invite something new into our lives.

Each New Moon is coloured by the sign it’s in. With Aquarius, the energy is already highly geared towards self-expression and originality. But with this Moon’s aspect to Mars, I think its energy will be even more daring and outgoing. It can be a time when some people feel a need to break out of their shell, or stop keeping up appearances within a stifling job role or relationship.

It can also be a time to explore how you might want to move into a more creative or assertive way of being. If you are feeling that your self-expression is constrained in some way, or you want to do something strange and inventive, this Moon offers the chance to dance with your ideas.

Here’s a look at what’s coming up for your sign this week:

Aries (21 March — 19 April)

The portal you can move through this week is one of death and rebirth. Your ruler, Mars, spends its final day in Pisces when the New Moon in Aquarius arrives. Mid-week, when the Moon is at its darkest, sit down and reflect on what you’ve processed throughout the past several weeks. Your spirit might have one final key to hand over to you before you can walk through the door you find yourself standing at. When Mars heads home to Aries on Saturday, you’ll be ready to go.

Taurus (20 April — 20 May)

The portal you can move through this week is one of courage. If you are so inclined, choose a fear or insecurity that you feel holds you back. Once you’ve identified it, decide what its opposite might be, and then imagine that that’s what can be waiting for you on the other side of this New Moon. Remember that Aquarius can be a bit of a rebel, so you might need to rebel against your old ways in order to embrace the transformation that can begin this week.

Gemini (21 May — 20 June)

The portal you can move through this week is one of visions. It looks like this New Moon can help you get a slim glimpse of what the future can be if you fully immerse yourself in your creative energy. This Friday’s energy can help you to acknowledge your ability to master the art of manifestation, knowing full well that you are the engine that drives your success. Dream it, be it.

Cancer (21 June — 22 July)

The portal you can move through this week is one of service – first to yourself, then to others. What are the elements you need in place for yourself? What makes you feel your best? Don’t be afraid to begin putting those measures in place, and making sure you can protect them once they’re there. When you are of service to yourself, then you can be of service to the world.

Leo (23 July — 22 August)

The portal you can move through this week is one of vitality. What’s going to make you feel like you are standing on the right kind of edge – not a place of tension, but of possibility and strength? Start a new process  or ritual for yourself with this New Moon, Leo. Think about what kind of transformation it can lead you to in the next six months and just start going for it.

Virgo (23 August — 22 September)

The portal you can move through this week is one of inspiration. You might want to look into a writing workshop or some kind of creative seminar that can help you uncover a whole other intellectual dimension that’s hiding within. Something is waiting to be expressed through you, Virgo, and it might put you down a very personal path of self-discovery once you open up to it.

Libra (23 September — 22  October)

The portal you can move through this week is one of assertion. Do you silence your voice? Do you overlook others’ questionable behaviour, or cut people too much slack? There is such a thing as being too flexible. Don’t dim your own powers, Libra. Let them rise up. Don’t worry, it won’t upset the imbalance – too much.

Suggested candle to burn for the New Moon: Red

Scorpio (23 October — 21 November)

The portal you can move through this week is one of intensity. Especially when it comes to the presence you are bringing into the world, and the forms of expression through which you work. It might be time for you to do something that will really set you apart from the crowd. Pen that experimental play. Write that new album. Push yourself towards a precipice that scares you as much as it thrills you.

Sagittarius (22 November — 22 December)

The portal you can move through this week is one of learning. If you’ve been thinking of signing up for a class or workshop, this New Moon would be a wonderful time to make that happen. And if the classroom isn’t your thing, maybe you want to get lost in your local library, or book a quick weekend getaway where you can take in the sights of someplace you’ve never seen before.

Capricorn (22 December — 19 January)

The portal you can move through this week is one of mentorship. What kind of knowledge have you gained over the years, Capricorn? You might want to take inventory of it, because there might be a way for you to share it with others. Maybe you want to host a workshop, or just offer some good advice, pro bono, to someone who reminds you of your younger self. Packaging up some lessons for a blog series or even a book can also be a way for you to hand down your wisdom.

Aquarius (20 January — 18 February)

The portal you can move through this week is one of expansion. Especially when it comes to your surroundings and your experiences. What have you yet to see, feel, hold, taste, or do? This New Moon is acting as your new year, Aquarius, and with that comes the push to decide what new avenues you have yet to explore. Think big on this one.

Suggested candle to burn for the New Moon: White

Pisces (19 February — 20 March)

The portal you can move through this week is one of compassion. Aquarius’ energy can be radical and rebellious, but it always has the best of intentions for the world at large. What kind of random acts of kindness might you bestow on your community? What kind of action do you feel compelled to take? What is your soul encouraging you to be of service on your spiritual path?
