Welcome to the second New Moon in the month of January! It will arrive at 4:39 pm Eastern Time on Thursday January 30, 2014, within 10 degrees of Aquarius. Not only are we blessed with an additional New Moon, it’s also a Supermoon—and in many circles it’s known as a Black Moon. So be ready for some sweeping personal changes.

Bad Moon Rising?

You might be reminded of that old Creedence Clearwater Revival song “Bad Moon Rising,” but there’s no need to fear this Black Moon/Super New Moon—it’s far from bad.

This is a magically potent New Moon. It is an excellent time to begin new goals because you’ll get the added punch of energy from this rare alignment.

No doubt this New Moon is unique and special. According to many Pagan and Wiccan traditions, a second New Moon in a month is called a Black Moon, and like a Supermoon, it will appear closer to the Earth than normal. Don’t be surprised if you hear about higher tides and severe winter storms, as they tend to occur during a Supermoon.

This is a magically potent New Moon. It is an excellent time to begin new goals because you’ll get the added punch of energy from this rare alignment. So if you missed out on the first New Moon on January 1st, here’s your second chance.

The Black Moon is also considered an omen or harbinger of change. Hidden truths will come to light right now, but have no fear; anything you come across will propel you towards new growth.

Age of Aquarius?

Well, this New Moon is not exactly about hippies and bell-bottoms, but it certainly relates to some late 1960s attitudes.

The Aquarius flavor of this New Moon suggests new beginnings around personal freedom and liberation. It says, “Do your own thing, man,” not unlike what you’d hear during the Summer of Love days. This lunar transit reminds you to march to the beat of your own drum.

If you’ve been untrue to your authentic self, the Moon’s energy will highlight it now. You’ll take a bold stance and drop any façade you’ve been hiding behind these days. It’s time to let you be you!

Break free of anything that doesn’t feel right or won’t make your heart sing. The Aquarius New Moon will empower you to begin a brand new chapter in your life. Find your bliss and live your truth!

Let this Black Moon/Super New Moon light up your life, so that you may live it to the fullest!
