Aquarius New Moon Energy

AQUARIUS is an Air Sign (Fixed), and is ruled by Uranus & Sirius. Aquarius relates to the Universal Gateway Chakra & the 11th House of Community, Humanitarian Pursuits, Hope, Friendship, Groups & Society.   Aquarius loves to Dream & Think Big, envisions ‘out-there’ solutions to life’s problems and loves to reach far & wide with her juicy-big humanitarian heart.

During a NEW MOON, the side of the moon that remains invisible to us here on Earth is being illuminated by the Sun.  Thus our own ‘invisible’ side, our inner feelings, emotions and desires are also being illuminated during a New Moon.  During this illumination, we are given a window of opportunity to start a fresh, let go of the energy of the previous cycle and set our intentions, dreams & inner-most desires into conscious action.




Year of the Yin Water Rabbit

Our Aquarius New Moon welcomes in our Chinese New Year 2023 – Year of the Yin Water Rabbit.   Chinese New Year is a spring festival that begins on the second new Moon after Winter Solstice (Summer Solstice in Southern Hemisphere), with the Sun and Moon in Aquarius.   Hence in the Gregorian Calendar the date of the Chinese New Year differs year to year.  Celebrations last for 15 days and end with the Lantern Festival at the full moon.

The Chinese Calendar is the Solilunar Calendar – which means it integrates our solar cycles (revolution of Earth around the Sun) and our Lunar Cycles (moons movement around Earth).  This Chinese New Year will be the 4720th Chinese New year in the Chinese Calendar.

The Chinese Zodiac is based on a 12 year cycle, and each of the years relate to a particular animal – Rat, Ox, Tiger, Rabbit, Dragon, Snake, Horse, Sheep, Monkey, Rooster, Dog & Pig.  The sign you are born under will potentiate personality characteristics, challenges, learnings & gifts.  

Yin Water Rabbit Energy

Water is all about flow, intuition, moving into uncharted waters, wearing away ‘old’ energy, and deep feeling, emotional sensitivity and transformation into the call of the moment – think how water can change from ice, to liquid to steam.  Not to mention the 4th phase of water consciousness.And after two years of metal energy (2020 & 21), in 2022 & 23 we now enter two years of blessed flow through the Water Element.
