Aries Through Pisces: The January Super New Moon’s Effect on Each of Us.


Something new is in the air.

Energy is about to be kicked up a few notches and it’s exciting to think about all the possibilities in store.

A New Moon will take place on January 20, 2015—but this isn’t any ol’ New Moon. This is a Supermoon and it can be radically empowering if you’re considering embarking on something new.

Supermoons always tend to heighten energy and you might be feeling the effects already.

Supermoons actually occur when the Moon is a little closer to the Earth. This makes them appear bigger and brighter than regular ‘ol New and Full Moons—which is kind of neat if you’re into the visuals.

You don’t have to take my word on it either, just look up into the night sky around the 20th and you will see it. The closer we get, the more beautiful it will become. You won’t be able to help but feel like something around you is happening.

New Moons, in general, are great times to set new intentions and this one will work more to your advantage if you think outside the box. Since Aquarius is the sign that dominates this super-charged New Moon we’re tapping into a zone where different dominates. This New Moon highlights the place in our lives where we are being pushed to think differently or take on a new perspective.

Maya Angelou once stated, “If you are always trying to be normal, you will never know how amazing you can be.” This ties in precisely with the energy of this Supermoon in play. Whether we admit to it or not, we’re all a little different, radical or rebellious (Aquarian traits) in some way or another. Sometimes this side of us can be a little tricky to explore…or even look at. It’s different and most often it’s uncomfortable—but these are the parts of us that are the most amazing.

This New Moon can help us to not be so afraid of going outside our normal comfort zone and tap into that something different within. The planetary combinations peaking at this time are quite rare, suggesting that many of us are pushing way beyond limits in order to find what our amazing and different potential actually is.

You may already be conjuring up some thoughts as to how you personally may be affected. I have to be honest, however, and tell you that what comes out of it may surprise you in more ways than one. Another hint to ponder is that your something new could be something that you’ve thought of doing before since we’re approaching a Mercury retrograde period (January 21st-February 11th). Mercury retrogrades are good times to revisit things you thought about or did in the past.

For additional personal insight, here are the themes associated with the Supermoon energy for each Zodiac sign:

Aries: Mixing up the friend scene may be at the forefront of your mind—or perhaps you are embarking on a new friendship or joining a new group. On a deep level, you may be in the beginning stages of manifesting something that you’ve wanted to for a long time.

Taurus: A new and possibly different type of career opportunity or type of public recognition could stem out of this something new. There’s also something pushing you to go into the public eye and come out from working behind the scenes so much.

Gemini: Your beliefs could begin to be altered in some way shape or form. New ventures involving going back to school, learning and teaching could suddenly take on new meaning.

Cancer: A joint opportunity or help stemming from others could come out of the blue. Matters of intimacy could also be explored in different ways. Perhaps it’s time to get a little kinky. 😉

Leo: Something new with your partner could crop up—including meeting someone new. You may also find new and creative ways to deal with anybody you work with on an intimate level (business partners included).

Virgo: A new routine or something involving your living/working environment could be in the works. This is a good time to mix up the things you do every day and play with the idea of approaching certain routines a little differently.

Libra: Your creative energies may get a reboot as well as your ability to let loose and have a little fun. This is the perfect time for you to having fun by going on a few dates or out on the town. There’s also a focus on children or the children in your life.

Scorpio: The home and family scene are highlighted for you. Perhaps you decide to change things around in your home or toy with the idea of purchasing real estate. Family is also another highlighted theme and something new may that involves your home or family.

Sagittarius: Communications and your ability to say what you really want is a focal point. Freedom of expression is your aim here. A short trip could also be in store or a new venture involving a sibling or cousin.

Capricorn: Money and your resources are in play for you at this time. You begin thinking of new and creative ways to make money or use your resources more wisely. An opportunity to make more money could develop.

Aquarius: You might be in just the right mood to switch up your look. Perhaps you’ve been thinking about changing your hairstyle or revamping your wardrobe. Something having to do with your appearance is in play for you here. This is the perfect time for you to make a change for you.

Pisces: Something totally out of the blue or unexpected could find you with this energy. Your mysterious sector is being highlighted so this is a good time to tap into your subconscious or dive within yourself to find what it is that you really want.

No matter what area this plays out in for you—the key theme is different and stepping outside of your comfort zone may end up feeling more comfortable than you think. Play around with these areas and see just how amazing you can truly be.
