It’s time to break free from the past, and welcome in the fresh visions and energies headed our way. Prioritize your individual freedom—Aquarius brings emphasis to the meaning of sovereignty.

The sun and moon will form a chaotic square to changemaker Uranus, Great Awakener and planet of unexpected breakthroughs. Remember, while sun represents our physical identity and external reality, the moon is symbolic of our emotional landscape and innermost feelings. That said, holding space for your intuition is essential for your new-moon manifestations, as this cerebral lunation will bring a newfound sense of awareness, nudging you with significant insight and perspective. Erratic and brutally honest, messages are crystal clear when surrounding your community affairs, sense of belonging in the world, and the future you’re in the process of creating.
Consider Aquarian themes such as friendship, technology, social networks, the world wide web, to name a few. Uranus in Taurus has been revolutionizing our value systems and sense of security since 2018; hence you’re well-aware of what you don’t want, and what you’re no longer willing to put up with. This could trigger the sudden urge to break free from a network, community, or group, while others of you decide to go your own way. The influence of Uranus in Taurus is also highlighting the people, places, and situations we continuously rely on, or believe we “need” to get by. *Alexa, play “Better off Alone” by Alice Deejay*
Despite the inevitable challenges surrounding this chaotic synergy, the square to Uranus is here to liberate us from what’s been keeping us stagnant when in regards to our values, finances, and sense of stability. Taurus sees the value in what is practical, tangible, and long-lasting. Slow and steady wins the race and sometimes, less is more. You’re stepping into a brand-new era—don’t doubt your worth. You are capable of so much more than you realize… and within the next six months, these seeds of intention could start coming into fruition. Trust the process, and commit to a plan of action. This is a supercharged new beginning, and the cosmos is supporting you every step of the way.
