The 2nd New Moon in the same sign in a 30 day period is called a Black Moon. Those who believe in the power of magic say this Aquarian New Moon (at the last degree of its sign) is extra potent for bringing things into fruition. It is also a Super Moon with the moon’s path being at its closest point to the Earth. As I suggest every month, during the dark new moon, take time to set your intentions for the next 30 days.

One of the Chinese customs for this holiday is to honor the animal that is a symbol for the new year following Chinese astrology. 2015 is the year of the “Wood Sheep”. It is a year to connect more with the feminine side of life and open up to creativity, beauty and love. A great time to seek solutions to last year’s problems by opening up to new sources of inspiration.

Are you ready to shift to a new way of being? To really start manifesting your dreams? The New Moon is an opening to our future by supporting our connection to something larger than ourselves. To honor Chinese New Year and inspire you during your meditations for the next 2 weeks, I leave you with music from Asian Dreamland:
