The wacky, weird, and one-of-a-kind energy of the Aquarius season peaks during the February 2022 New Moon, which occurs on February 1 at 12:46 a.m. ET/January 31 at 9:46 p.m. PT.
For those of us on Central, Mountain, or Pacific time, this will also be a rare “Black” Moon, as it technically marks the second New Moon in a calendar month, which just adds to its quirky Aquarius flair.
This powerful lunation is a great time to set intentions that stick, so you’ll want to know how the February New Moon affects your zodiac sign. The upcoming New Moon, which also launches us into a new month, has the Sun and Moon aligned in the territory of the fixed air sign of Aquarius.
Aquarius energy is innovative, forward-thinking, and likes to march to the beat of its own drum so we may find ourselves rebelling against our personal standards and more willing to shake up the status quo in this lunation.
Aquarius is also the sign that rules the community, so this New Moon is the perfect time to set intentions related to our collective growth, start volunteering for a good cause, or start a collaborative group project. Think big and remember that working together can get us where we want to go twice as fast.
The February New Moon will form a tight conjunction aspect to the ever-responsible planet Saturn, giving us firm resolve when it comes to pursuing our New Moon goals. If we’re willing to put in some time and effort, we can bring our most innovative visions to life under this New Moon.
The wise and serious presence of Saturn reminds us that we need to work hard and have patience for the magic to work but the visionary energy of Aquarius will keep us inspired and energized throughout the process. Read on for the full scoop on how the February New Moon will affect each zodiac sign.
