New Moon in Aquarius – Chinese New Year of the White Metal Rat
The New Moon on Friday, January 24, 2020 at 04°26′ Aquarius is square Uranus. This New Moon also falls on the Chinese New Year – the Year of the White Metal Rat. The Chinese New Year’s Eve is tonight, January 24, 2020. The Chinese Festival (also known as Spring Festival) is 15 days long. The last day is the Chinese Lantern Festival, which is on February 8, 2020. Rat years are energetic years to pursue ambitious goals, business initiatives and opportunities to make things happen.
Therefore, the January New Moon augurs inspiration, spontaneity, emotional and creative breakthroughs, and the realization of one’s conscious will and individuality. So, trusting one’s instincts and reacting quickly to changing conditions and seeing things from a new angle is the key to navigating this New Moon.
The New Moon’s close aspect to Uranus can coincide with unexpected developments and surprise, that will cause one a change in their plans, or cause a much-needed change in one’s immediate personal life or living situation. However, those changes will be positive and very be constructive in the long run. The purpose of the Sun-Moon-Uranus archetypal energy of the January New Moon is to introduce aliveness and radiant enthusiasm back into one’s life to keep it from settling down into a dreary and banal routine.
