This New Moon has been variously called an Aquarian New Moon and a Pisces New Moon, as it’s at 30° Aquarius – which some astrologers are calling 0° Pisces. While this is a debate worthy of some discussion, the upshot is this: a funky week is on the way, and this debate is testament to that in itself!
And, while you’ll enjoy getting used to new parameters in your life, the Sun’s move into philosophical and dreamy Pisces just after the New Moon will no doubt encourage you to think big; think romantically and take this week’s inspiring events into a new realm.
The down side is that this week’s events could feel a little disorientating, as the New Moon really will mark a shift into your deeper understanding of a particular issue in your life; or into a deeper understanding of your life in general.
Luckily, astro aspects towards the end of the week will encourage open, candid and practical talks which could bring favourite interests to a happy outcome.
