Aquarius New Moon February 8th 2016 - Reinvent Yourself
Whenever I think of Aquarius, I think of someone who is different, who doesn’t follow the crowd and who doesn’t mind saying what they think – popular or not.
Aquarius is all about the unfamiliar, the unpredictable, the unknown. The New Moon is always an opportunity for a new beginning, but for something to be truly new, it has to be unexpected. We get bored with the status quo and yet we fear change. How about making a conscious effort to observe where you feel stuck and proactively encourage yourself to make changes?
This is the challenge of the New Moon in Aquarius.
David Bowie, who had Aquarius rising said:
‘If you feel safe in the area you’re working in, you’re not working in the right area. Always go a little further into the water than you feel you’re capable of being in. Go a little bit out of your depth. And when you don’t feel that your feet are quite touching the bottom, you’re just about in the right place to do something exciting.’ Every single time I put out a new video, I am always a little nervous and excited. Will you like it? Will it get lots of dislikes as my David Bowie video did? The same with every newsletter. I always want to come up with something new and interesting, otherwise, with all the other competition out there for your attention, you’ll soon stop reading…….
What are you doing to keep on reinventing and renewing yourself?
This week, in preparation for the New Moon, I have been observing how many things I do out of habit that are completely unconscious. For example, eating. I tend to sit in the same seat, hold my cutlery in the same way, eat without stopping for breath in between………..
So I have forced myself out of this little comfort zone to eat in different parts of the apartment, to eat on the floor, to be completely immersed and focused on the act of eating, to make ooohing and aaaahing noises when I am really enjoying a tasty morsel, and last but certainly not least, I gave myself permission to eat an entire meal with my fingers!!! My father (had he been alive) would have been quite disgusted, but he’s been gone for nearly 20 years and yet I still find myself abiding by what he considered appropriate behaviour.
What can you do that is different? What new choices can you make?
I have chosen to become left-handed after nearly 60 years of being right-handed. I am aware that this is creating new connections in my brain and is enabling me to be more creative and come up with new and interesting ideas.
Look carefully at your life, especially the areas where you’re feeling bored or uninspired, or areas where you’re feeling stuck, and see whether or not you are doing the same thing over and over again and expecting or hoping for a different result.
“The definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over again, but expecting different results”.
Aquarius is an Air sign and all the Air signs are concerned with mental activity. Your mind is extremely powerful and when you begin to think differently, you can change your health, your finances, your relationships, everything.
Mars is square to this New Moon in Aquarius This can bring frustrations and angry outbursts, OR it can give you the ability to accomplish anything to set your mind to do. Set a clear intention to utilise this energy to your advantage.
I mentioned three famous people in my last newsletter: Oprah Winfrey, Ellen Degeneres and Eckhart Tolle, all of whom I have later found out are Aquarians!! They are not particularly ‘traditional beauties,’ but by being themselves, they have attracted huge worldwide audiences.
Maybe you think you look a bit odd sometimes, but often strange-looking animals and people are quite adorable! Try seeing all your idiosyncrasies in a new light.
| Wishing you an inspirational New Moon in Aquarius!
Go on! Dare to be different!! Stand out from the crowd!!
