Supermoon + Year of the Horse

What a week! What a Friday!

Last night was a supermoon (when the moon orbits closest to the earth, in direct line with the sun and earth) AND it was the second new moon for the month of Jan. That’s pretty auspicious. Harbinger of change, in fact… and also big emotions. TIDAL waves of feeling for some. Hey, no problem. It’s ok to be loony. Or, more accurately : luna-y.

This supermoon is in Aquarius and there are many astrologers and bloggers sharing their thoughts on what that means. I find it all very interesting and thought you might like this snippet (below) that I’ve pinched from Mystic Mamma. Regardless of how you feel about astrology, I think it’s a good message and also a powerful affirmation.

A new cycle is beginning for you. The Aquarius New Moon can empower you to move in a bold direction. You may break free from bad habits and relationships. You could awaken to your divine destiny. You are no longer distracted by fear and doubt. You are ready to be who you were born to be. You are prepared to stand in your divine power and shine your light.

This supermoon also brings with it the start of Chinese New Year, the beginning of the Year of the Wooden Horse. Apparently a Horse year is considered a fortunate one, bringing luck and happiness. A year of running wild and free, just like a horse. Sounds good to me! Over the next two weeks there will be celebrations all over town to welcome in the new lunar year. I plan on cleaning our house from top to bottom – to create a fresh start for the big year ahead AND because it really needs it – plus eating as many feast foods (hello, dumplings) as I am able.
