Here's What The Aquarius New Moon May Mean For You

The wait is over for the first new moon of 2023. Beginning tomorrow, the moon will take its position in Aquarius, and shall remain there until January 23rd, according to Tarot. If you're unsure as to what a new moon actually is, it's basically the counterpart to a full moon. Where a full moon lights up the night sky, a new moon is much darker — practically invisible to the naked eye. It's a sign the lunar cycle has begun, and each month, we receive a new moon in a different astrological position.


Even though the Aquarius new moon only lasts a short while, its presence has a lasting effect on each of us (whether you believe in astrology or not). You may be surprised to learn what an influence it has on our day-to-day lives and sense of self. With that being said, it's time to embrace the energy the new moon in Aquarius has to offer.

You'll develop stronger relationships

Don't be surprised if you're more inspired to take action while the Aquarius new moon is here, as it's expected to create a sextile aspect with the planet Jupiter. As the two work together to form the sextile, you'll feel a surge of motivation, Astrology explains. Perhaps, you still have a suitcase that needs unpacked, or maybe you've been procrastinating a major presentation for work. Even if you've already given up on your New Year's resolutions (no judgment), this new moon could help kick things back into high gear. 


Additionally, you might develop an itch for change in your life, says Tarot. A new moon in Aquarius often brings up a sense of spontaneity, which can create an urge to start over. You might realize your job isn't fulfilling enough and decide to quit, or your relationship doesn't satisfy you anymore and you want to move on. Maybe you're tired of your living situation and are dying for a change of scenery. Whatever the case, if your spontaneous side begins to emerge, we say roll with it!

Your social life will improve

Aquarius is hands down one of the friendliest signs in the zodiac (seriously, they get along with pretty much everybody), PrepScholar states. So, with a new moon in Aquarius, you may notice a change in your social life and how you interact with people. No matter your sign, you should feel an increase in energy around others. However, Aquarians often have trouble opening up, so don't feel any pressure to let your guard down if you aren't comfortable doing so. Remember, you can still be a social butterfly without getting too deep.


This coincides with what we talked about earlier — how you're more likely to take action and embrace your spontaneous side. Now is the time to say yes to more opportunities of all kinds. All in all, the 2023 Aquarius new moon will bring out parts of you that you may not have explored before, and we're totally here for it.
