“When I free my mind, I liberate myself.”
“That bright, new beginning I was expecting, is finally here!”
Welcome to the real beginning of 2022! If you’ve been reading our previous astrology posts, you’ve been aware that January had a unique astrological tone to it. Bringing three powerful lunar events and the overlap of two major retrogrades (Venus and Mercury), January’s astrology theme was to prepare us for what’s to come.
As we enter February, Venus is now direct and Mercury goes direct on Thursday night. So, from Friday on, there are no more retrograde planets in the sky… yay! This means that from this moment on, there is only forward movement. As we begin to integrate all the valuable learnings from January, a new beginning arrives on the last day of the month. On Monday, January 31st, there will be a New Moon in Aquarius at 9:46 p.m. Pacific Time. What’s special about this lunar event is that it marks the arrival of the Lunar New Year, bringing the Year of the Water Tiger.
In Asian astrology, the Year of the Rat (2020) was about survival, and the Year of the Ox (2021) was about anchoring to a new reality. In 2022, the energy of the Year of the Tiger will be about making big changes, having more fun, and welcoming new adventures. And funny enough, this is what this New Moon in Aquarius is all about!
Over the week ahead, there’s electricity in the air! And as we stand in the liminal space between the past and the future, this week’s astrology has a clear message for us: “Free your mind and the rest will follow!” As we embrace this new beginning, we are so, so ready to leave the past behind! We are being gifted the opportunity to detach from a situation and see it from a new perspective. Life has changed dramatically—and it will keep changing. The difference is that the word “change” no longer feels scary—it feels exhilarating!
Under this astrological weather, it’s easy to understand that change is the only constant in life. And that when we embrace it, we set ourselves up for success. This week, as the Moon renews herself, so are you, too! As you sit in ritual to embrace this beautiful, new beginning, repeat the following mantras:
