This New Moon in Aquarius occurs on Wednesday, February 2, 2011 at 9:31 pm EST (Thursday, February 3 at 2:31 GMT). New Moons are a time of fresh starts and new beginnings, and there will be a focus on the high-tech, intellectual, and humanitarian. Perhaps now is the time to begin planning for the arrival of your new iPhone, deciding on a new class to take in the spring, or beginning new work with a charity or other organization.Â The Sun, the Moon, and Mars are in Aquarius, letting us be a little daring and step outside of our intellectual and humanitarian comfort zones. Mercury will remain in Aquarius through the end of the month, making our journey to discover new things and ideas exciting. Be sure to check which house in your chart is highlighted with this New Moon, as this will be your focus of change.
The New Moon in Aquarius also aligned with Chiron (within a degree), so there will be an element of spiritual and soulful healing; perhaps that which you are driven to investigate or those you choose to help will help heal some of your past hurts. Now is a powerful time of change and rejuvenation.
