Aquarius New Moon & The Year of the Monkey!
Aquarius New Moon, Monday, February 8th 6:38pm PST: I’m calling this new moon, the same day as the beginning of the Chinese New Year—The Monkey Moon! The sign of Aquarius, like the Monkey, is innovative, forward-thinking and loves to shake things up. This new moon illuminates your Bigger Picture, and is an excellent time to get moving on new projects, go outside your comfort zones; take some risks and most importantly trust your instincts--they're super in tune now. It’s not an excellent moment for relationship building, however. You’re going to want extra space, to focus and nurture your inspirations.
The 2016 Red Monkey year carries the energy of invention, intelligence, global change, creativity and breakthroughs. Which fits with the 2016 western astrological landscape as well. The Year of the Monkey is a good year to break free and take calculated risks. The Monkey is impatient, ingenious and doesn’t stand on convention. He is a rebellious trickster and encourages us to be strategic, and follow our heart’s desires!
Here’s the forecast for each of the Chinese Astrological signs (from astrologyclub.org):
Amazing Year for: Rats, Dragons, Monkeys—brings charm and confidence. Unstable but dynamic!
Positive Year for: Goats, Rabbits, Oxen—improvement in all area of life. Progress finally!
Exciting Year for: Rooster, Horses—Tricky situations abound. Enjoy the stimulation!
Complex Year for: Tigers, Snakes, Boars, Dog—strong focus and objectivity bring the best results!
Happy Illuminations and let the Monkey Business begin!
