Aquarius Season & New Moon in Aquarius: Embody the Maverick Within

By: Narayana Montufar 

Mantra: “I now know how my actions affect the overall collective vibration; I embody the maverick that lives within me.”


An exciting new beginning is in store! After a long period of deep pause and introspection, the energetic pace picks up as the bright light of the Sun illuminates Aquarian skies, starting Friday, January 20th at 12:30 a.m. Pacific Time. As the second to the last zodiac sign, Aquarius is a fascinating sign, and one astrologers continue to have feuds about to this day. 

Archetypally speaking, Aquarius is a sign that has strong connections to the past due to its traditional planetary ruler, Saturn, the Planet of Tradition and Boundaries. In modern astrology, however, Aquarius is ruled by Uranus, the Planet of Genius and Sudden Change. When we merge both planetary influences, Aquarius is the sign that has one foot in the past, and the other stepping towards the future. It represents the yearning human desire for freedom, but also its fixated fear of change. In 2021 and 2022, we got a big dose of this sign’s influence, as we saw the past foundations of our lives, as well as our society, collapse to make room for new ones. In 2023, we will continue to be influenced by Aquarius and its collective vibration of freedom and rebellion (more on that in March). 

One of the highlights of Aquarius season arrives the very next day with the New Moon in Aquarius, happening on Saturday, January 21st at 12:53 p.m. Pacific Time. This is a very special lunation, as it is the first New Moon occurring after the retrogrades of Mercury and Mars. New Moons are new beginnings—and this one, in particular, is opening the door to energies no one alive has ever seen before. 

If you experienced low energy or drive as well as setbacks in the past couple of months, this New Moon was made for you! It brings you opportunity, requesting that you think big! However, to make use of it, you will have to follow through on your intentions, which might require you to take a big leap of faith! Are you ready? At this New Moon, embody Aquarius, the sign of the Maverick by leaving the past behind and stepping into the future. 2023 can be a year of major growth, so yes—you’re more than ready to step into the new you!
