New Moon in Aquarius Chinese New Year ☾ A new dawn...

Mandala Oracle Card Reading ☆ New Moon in Aquarius

Today marks a new beginning, with the New Moon in Aquarius and the Chinese New Year of the Fire Monkey! This is an excellent time to set intentions for the coming year that highlight your best self and the unique offerings you, both alone and in collaboration, are here to bring to light.

So put out to the universe what it is you intend to create, then put your party hat on and dance around because we are here to celebrate!


Although we are still healing from all the deep inner work of the past several months, a new dawn is appearing just over the horizon. In the northern hemisphere, Spring is ever closer, and in the South Autumn is approaching. Wherever we are, change is upon us once more as we launch into the year of the Fire Monkey. As we transform and prepare to engage in this bold new space, we must give ourselves plenty of rest and time for rejuvenation. New beginnings ask us to conserve and redirect energy.

This does not just mean getting plenty of sleep and making time for self-care in the sense of physical and spiritual practice, but also exhibiting a willingness to be flexible, celebrate, and to let go of the need to control and know how everything will work. Give up trying to figure it all out and instead take a break and go for a walk, laugh until you cry at silly videos or call close friends and share a great meal and conversation.

Although we may be getting a lot done and feel committed to seeing the dream through, watch out for stubbornness and force yourself to break up any behavioral pattern that feels heavy with healthy distraction, connection and fun. Your power lies within free will and the ability to set the intention. After this is done, we must disengage and relax. So choose wisely, let the universe know who you are, what you need and what you intend to create and then let it go.

We need to trust that the universe has everything worked out in the long run, even if it doesn’t seem that way now. Let’s lighten up and open our hearts to the new growth that is just around the corner. The days are getting longer, buds are appearing on trees and the ground is getting restless. Rejoice, rest, release, connect and prepare for the longer, warmer days ahead.
