What does it all mean?
Aquarius is ahead of his time, he is capable of thinking and “seeing” things in a different way then the rest of us. This makes the Aquarius moon phase and inventive one.
Aquarius is ruled by Uranus, the planet of shock and chaos. His original ruler was Saturn, until Uranus was discovered. And like Uranus, Aquarius folks can surprise us sometimes, they can be rebellious and “cranky” or open minded and extremely helpful.
We may feel more inclined towards kindness, especially on a “global” level or towards animals, the elderly and those worse off than us. Aquarius has a distinctly humanitarian streak.
The time may be right to understand/learn about new technology, such as a new phone, tablet or t.v. coding or crypto.
We may be feeling more rebellious than usual, prompting us to try new things and/or meet new people.
Be careful not to break tradition just because one feels like being different. Teenagers may feel the need to express themselves, so parents be for-warned.
Personal freedom and individuality is very important now. Partner’s try not to restrict each other’s movements. Parent’s, it might be a tight line you walk now. Employer’s give your “worker’s” a little “slack”.
Being organized might not go as planned, so expect weird schedule’s and interrupted meetings…
Changes may be in the air…if you are o.k. with change, or you absolutely have to make changes, now could be an excellent time to go ahead with your plans.
Maybe a goodtime for inventions.
When the moon is in Aquarius she will have more of an effect on those who have the following in their charts. along with those with strong Leo placements in their charts.
The next few days may be positive for the following: Joining a club, borrowing money, fixing cars, hair care (colors and chemical treatments), moving, painting, pouring cement, starting a new job or new construction.

New Moon in Aquarius, 3:53 pm (ET) 12:53 pm (PT). When the moon is new, it is said to be a good time to begin new projects, jobs, relationships, anything that we have not had the pleasure of experiencing before. Because the new moon is in the sign of Aquarius this month, technology, transportation, humanitarian and creative projects may be on the agenda. We can bring new energy into our lives during a new moon. Do a New Moon meditation or write a list of the things, people, places and situations you would like to bring into your life this month, read it, believe it and then burn it and leave it all up to the Universe. 😊
In astrology, the moon is connected to our emotions and reactions… how we are feeling on a given day may well be influenced by the sign that is visiting the moon… Each sign stays with the moon for up to 2.5 days…. 🙂
The Moon Void-of-Course:
There are times throughout the month when the moon isn’t fully immersed in any sign… this is when we say the moon is Void of Course, during these times, we may not be sure how we are truly feeling about a situation or a person. Therefore it is not recommended that we make long-term commitments or important decision’s while the moon is Void of Course…. However there are 4 signs in the zodiac which may prove positive during the Void-of-Course moon…
There are other periods throughout the month that are known as opportunity periods, when it can prove to be a positive time for most people, however if you have challenging aspects happening within your own chart you may not be able to make use of opportunity periods.
