Supermoon: New Moon in Aquarius

On February 18th, 2015, there will be a Super New Moon throwing a little magic—or something extra special—into the air.

The planetary energy behind this powerful new moon is energizing, rare and challenging all at the same time. It’s a combination of two signs in one and its power will have the potential to affect each of us in different ways. Thinking about the possibilities is where the magic really begins.

Whether or not you believe in the hocus pocus of magic is a rather personal question. It’s kind of like asking someone how much they weigh, their age or how much they make. How people respond to these questions is anyone’s guess. Some may feel offended by the question and choose to not respond at all. Plus, it’s never 100 percent that those that actually do will tell the truth.

If you want to ask me if I believe in magic—I’ll respond with the answer that “I do.” However, in my mind magic goes beyond turning a frog into a prince or finding a genie that’ll grant you three wishes. Magic to me means…believing in the unbelievable and the unbelievable has the potential to happen every day.

I believe that we all have the potential to make our own magic every day no matter what the influences. However, it’s up to us to begin somewhere, plant our seeds and set the magic in motion. This super new moon sets a stage where our potential to begin something new becomes a little greater—especially since creative energy will be so high.

The reason behind what I’m saying has to do with the number 29 because this particular Supermoon falls in the 29th degree of Aquarius. It marks a moment right before the Sun transitions into the magical, empathetic and caring sign of Pisces (quite literally since the Sun enters Pisces approximately two minutes after it takes place).

In Astrology, the 29th degree is the last degree of a sign and it marks a significant turning point. I like to call it Magic 29. Turning points are important and critical to us getting ahead and achieving our goals. They mark new roads and unexplored territories in the map of our lives.

Given the planetary circumstances it’s probable that a major turning point is upon us and it will likely continue through the March Solar Eclipse also taking place in the 29th Degree (occurring on 3/20/15). This particular super new moon begins the motion of transition from Aquarius (thinking about things collectively from a group stand point) into the waters of Pisces (feeling the empathetic and creative nature of one-on-one relationships). It could also take us into a higher consciousness where we begin to connect the things that we perceive into the things that we intend to now do.

With the overabundance of Pisces energy in play, going within yourself is important no matter where this particular energy is affecting you. What you do now sets the stage for the next 6 months ahead.

Combining with these influences are heavier planetary energies that have been around us for some time. Over the last several years, many of us have been wrapped up in change and challenge. The root of all of it has to do with two planets (Pluto and Uranus) fighting it out since 2012 creating a big bru-ha-ha in the Zodiac. Thankfully, the fight is nearly over and a new way of operating is in the works. Endings create drama and beginnings are never that easy to embark upon. This Supermoon marks the point where energy heats up and we can actually visualize and take action on the things we’ve been wanting to do.

Something in the universe is pushing us to do something new and this is where the magical part comes in. One could even argue that Supermoons themselves are magical. If you’ve been aware of their presence in the past you would certainly agree. They create higher awareness, consciousness and unexpected events.

A Supermoon in the 29th degree, however, is more than just that. It’s the point when things you never believed possible become possible. It’s up to us to begin thinking about what our intentions might be for this powerful new moon. Maybe we even decide to think outside the realm of our personal possibilities as to where we go from here. We’re in transition mode and if you look hard enough…there’s a sprinkling of magic mixed in the planetary mania that we’re all about to find.
