New Moon in Aquarius

By Kathy V. Crabbe


New Moon In Aquarius – February 2, 2011.


This month’s New Moon is in the sign of Aquarius, a fixed air sign. You know the type…usually on the outer edge of everything peering in, or lost in space, or surrounded by a large group of friends, but not really too close to any of them.


Aquarians are known for their independence, individuality and detachment. Their shadow side comes out in contrariness, rebellion and emotional unavailability.


Moon in Aquarius calls us to the circle, collaboration and collectivization. We recognize that what one does effects us all. We are asked to tend the web of community as natural team-builders.

More About The Moon Phases


The New Moon is the dark time of the month and so it’s an appropriate time to plant our seeds of intent for the month ahead and watch them grow and bloom as the Moon waxes to Full.


The Moon changes signs approximately every 2 ½ days, going through all twelve signs of the Zodiac every 29 ½ days. The sign that the Moon is in reflects qualities of your inner self and being-ness. Each month there is at least one New Moon that will rise at sunrise and set at sunset. Astrologically speaking this means that the Sun and the Moon are in conjunction.


Learning to work in concert with the phases of the Moon is an excellent way to add structure to your life, you are not only connecting with Mother Nature through the Moon’s reflection of the Sun and the Earth, but with human nature and especially with feminine nature who’s natural cycles resemble the Moon’s own.


My version of Aquarius




Abraxia is part of a series of non-dominant hand drawings called The Creative Soul Cards® (aka the ‘lefties’) that I created over a period of five years. To me Abraxia represents the essence of Aquarius – independent, unusual, and “Nut-like” – as in the Egyptian Goddess Nut, ruler of the night sky. It’s a good idea to keep Abraxia in front of you as you prepare to answer her questions, and yes, she does like an audience although she may not admit it! So keep a pen and paper handy to take notes starting off with how she makes you feel – first impressions are best.


Abraxia’s Questions


When have you gone out on a limb recently and how did it feel?


Choose a symbol to represent how you feel.


As you sit and ponder your New Moon intentions (you have written them out, haven’t you?!) ask yourself what first step you could take to bring your symbol to life.


Describe that first step in detail.


Now, to take this exercise even further I’m going to ask you to be very Aquarian with your plan and to share it with the world-at-large or at least with your friends so that we can all learn from you. How will you do this? How does this idea make you feel?


An Abraxian Exercise


Go outside (especially at sunset) and wave your arms in the air as you let your fingers tingle and shimmy. You are Goddess Divine upholding the sky. Repeat 3 times after me:






Now, get out there and save the world, as only you can!


Aquarian Gemstone Messages



A Message from Opal:


Let yourself be colorful in a subtle way and then one day surprise yourself by doing something wildly colorful, no holds barred! Let your inner imp out to play and feel the freedom that accompanies your decision.


Now congratulate yourself on being brave and remember you can always switch gears and tone things down at any time, especially if you start to get carried away (and are having too much fun!)



A Message from Obsidian:


Don’t be afraid to take a chance on love – you’re worth it!


Sparkly Blessings to All!
