Happy New Moon in Aquarius! This New Moon becomes exact at 4:42 p.m. New York time (21:42 GMT) on January 24.
The Wolf Moon, as the January New Moon is known, marks the first moon following this most recent Eclipse Season....meaning we made it! Eclipse Season can be a rocky time for everyone. Some of you may have already experienced major shakeups in your lives during the past six weeks; for others, the shakeups and shifts were energetically programmed into your field over the past six weeks and you'll see them manifest in physical reality soon.
This Aquarius New Moon is all about new beginnings and anchoring the Future into the NOW. This second half of the month of January and the first half of February provide an energetic gateway for accelerated manifestation, as all major planets are moving forward astrologically speaking. This is a rare occurrence, and it is best that we take advantage of it to seed the futures we are dreaming of—individually and collectively—in the NOW.
Aquarius is optimistic, idealistic, and hopeful. It has a powerful forward-pushing edge of let's-get-it-done kind of energy. Take advantage of this energy to really push forward with courage on any projects you are beginning or thinking about beginning. What type of life do you want to set yourself up to be actually living in 2021, 2022, 2023, and beyond? What might be realistic for you to accomplish in 2020 that will set you up for that kind of life? How about getting started NOW?!
This month is really about making progress on all levels. No more waiting, no more holding yourself back, no more self-sabotage. Get out there and make new connections. Start a new business. Start a new cleanse or healing diet!
Courage and commitment will really pay off at this time. 'Making moves' (as the millennials say) will pay off big-time. Start anything new that will set you up to live a great life over the rest of the decade. The time is now!
If you're the type of person that accomplishes more when there's a bit of pressure on you, then I highly recommend hiring a coach or mentor to help you. I'm a mentor for amazing people around the world, however even I have coaches and healers that help me every week (in fact, most high-level coaches and healers also have other coaches and healers that push them).
One thing that you'll need to work on if you really want to use this time to you're fullest advantage and begin (or continue to) make your dreams a reality is overcoming any patterns of self-sabotage.
The theme of overcoming self-sabotage is something that has been coming up for a lot of Lightworkers recently. This is because we have been in the process of 'clearing house' of those patterns which are no longer supporting us stepping fully into our individualized Divinely-designed Service roles—especially following the January 10 Lunar Eclipse in Cancer.
What I have discovered about self-sabotage is this: the self-saboteur within is only active and with you to provide you a gateway into seeing your own Shadow. The Shadow is the aggregate of the unprocessed wounds within, whether from this lifetime or others. When you become aware of that part of you which has often sabotaged good things from manifesting through lower-vibration choices, you then have the power to transcend that pattern.
Of course, on another level, there are no such thing as bad choices and every choice made out of self-sabotage was only made to help you advance spiritually, BUT once you become aware of these patterns, there is no longer any need to carry them forward anyways. It's as if you have discovered that you have been carrying a brick attached to your back and once you recognize that, you can put the brick down and go about your life feeling lighter and like things can come more easily and with less struggle.
Remember, you always have Free Will in every moment. It's just that the types of internal and external reactions that you have become accustomed to over and over and over again (which you inherited from those who raised you) keep you stuck in a feedback loop that is called a program. If you have a history of self-sabotaging yourself, that is part of your program. To stop the self-sabotage, you simply need to step OUT of the program, and that's something you need to practice in every moment. Think to yourself, what would the HIGHER-dimensional part of me choose/think/say in this moment/situation? What type of words/choices/thoughts would likely TRANSMUTE my karma? Which words/choices/thoughts would likely keep me stuck in the same karmic loop?
It's time to get all parts of you on board with your forward momentum. If there's any parts of you that feel stuck in the past, stuck in a lower-vibrational timeline, or just STUCK in general, ask those parts of you what they need from you? How can you Serve them? What these parts are really looking for is safety. It can be scary to parts of you that have been scarred and injured by the past to move forward into a new project, new relationship, new location, new career, higher income, new hobbie, etc. The more you can make these parts of you feel safe, like a loving parent would to an anxious child, the easier it is for you to get fully integrated and feel more 'together' than ever before.
The self-saboteur also tends to show up when someone has an inclination to be less than forgiving with themselves. This lack of forgiveness towards oneself really hurts and injures the Inner Child, who already has been hurt by that parental figure who was less than forgiving with them or with the other parental figure (or with his or her self, as we can literally feel the vibrations of those who raised us when we are very young). The Shadow's job is to show itself in inconvenient ways in order to get you to recognize where the Inner Child has been hurt. If you are very harsh on yourself, you will tend to self-sabotage yourself as well.
So, learning to also be more forgiving with yourself is another important aspect of transcending self-sabotage. When you gift yourself with the freedom to make as many mistakes as possible and Love yourself just the same, the self-saboteur within will evaporate and never need to return.
ENVISIONING A BETTER WORLD FOR ALL
Let's talk about harnessing this powerful Aquarian energy to precipitate changes on the collective level. Aquarius is forward-thinking, progressive, and demands equality. The vast income disparity between the haves and have-nots on our planet is something that just won't be able to last too much longer during this planetary Age of Aquarius. The Aquarian pressure, energetically speaking, will simply become too great and change will occur one way or another. This differs dramatically from the dualistic, all-or-nothing shadow energy of the Age of Pisces, which we have graduated from.
It might look like a pretty impossible task to shift this planet from its current economic system to something that will be able to support the proper nutrition, medical care and spiritual health of all human beings, but this is not something that is meant to happen overnight. The Age of Aquarius began in 2012 and shall last for just over 2000 years! It's not realistic to think that it's all going to change in under a decade. We need to have patience and faith, while doing what we can do to shift the collective consciousness.
With so much Capricorn energy setting the stage for 2020 (Jupiter, Saturn and Pluto), there is going to be a lot of focus on economic matters this year. The income inequality is going to be at the forefront of the discourse surrounding the 2020 election in the United States, as will the environment. The United States finds itself coming up on its first Pluto return as a nation, which means we are going to see a lot of changes coming politically. While those in power over the past few hundred years have largely gotten away with serving only the needs of the mega-upper class and large corporations while exempting themselves from following the same rules as the proletariat, the game is going to shift. We are going to see the political organization of the United States reform into something that listens more to the desires of the people, which will send ripples throughout the politico-economic structure of the entire world.
For most of us, the most effective possible thing that we can do to help shift the collective consciousness and to help accelerate this storm of reform that is brewing here in the U.S. is to shift the consciousness within our own vessels. You do not have enough power to shift the entire collective consciousness with your will, but you DO have the power to shift the entirety of your individual consciousness with your willpower. One of the laws of the Universe is that whatever you have the power to affect is whatever you are meant to have the power to affect. When you try to shift something that you don't have the power to shift, you end up feeling disempowered and victimized, which puts you right back down into that lower vibration where the powers that be don't mind you being.
When you take control of what you can control and nothing more, you move into that high vibration of Empowerment and Self-Responsibility (which by the way also alleviates self-sabotage) and you become an energetic broadcaster for that high vibration. Like the '100th Monkey Syndrome', that vibration of Empowerment propagates and begins to have an exponentially larger impact on the collective consciousness itself. As the collective consciousness shifts into higher and higher vibrations, it moves to higher and higher timelines where the control structures that are based on fear, trickery, and abuse can no longer vibrationally stand.
It's crucial to remain optimistic about things, both in regards to your individual journey and the collective journey. If one thing's for sure it's that pessimism will not increase your chances of living the type of life you want to live, individually or collectively. We really need to have that wide-eyed, childlike naivete of 'everything is possible', because in reality, it is!
You probably know by know that we live in an infinite multiverse, in a holographic projection, and that nothing is as totally concrete and real as it might seem. You know that miracles happen—you might have already experienced a few in your life. Use this New Moon time to re-align with that energy of believing in, embracing, and even expecting the miraculous. Find ways to recognize the little miracles in your day-to-day life. Every synchronicity is a miracle. Every loving embrace, every ray of sunshine, and every laugh is a miracle. Be the one that recognizes the little miracles every single day, while the other 99% of people stay in limbo, waiting to be liberated by their own mind. The choice is yours.
