New Moon in Aquarius 2024 Horoscope: What’s in Store for You Come February 9

Prepare for unpredictability and excitement!

Although February feels very much like the heart of wintertime, it’s hard to ignore that springtime and new beginnings aren’t so far off anymore. And steering toward our dreams for the new year with a full month of lessons and experiences under our belts, we’re more apt to have breakthroughs and to be open to changing course if necessary. For that reason, February’s innovation-spurring, eye-opening new moon in Aquarius 2024 is perfectly timed. 

On Friday, February 9, 2024, at 6 p.m. ET/3 p.m. PT, this enlivening, rebellious new moon falls in Aquarius, the fixed air sign whose modern ruler is Uranus, the planet of revolution, originality, freedom and electrifying change. The 2024 Aquarius new moon is the starting line for setting a thrilling intention stemming from your unique perspective or talents. Because there’s a surprising, erratic energy around this new moon, epiphanies and goals could occur to you in a way that feels completely out of the blue. And with the moon forming a tense angle to Uranus itself, in fixed earth sign Taurus, it’s best to keep an eye out for impulsivity and stubbornness. But by learning about what this lunar event has to offer, you’ll make the most of it.

What is a new moon?

The new moon occurs once — less frequently, twice — a month when the moon and the sun meet up at the very same spot in the zodiac (for example, this month, they will meet at 20 degrees of Aquarius). Because the two celestial bodies are so close, the sun’s vibrant light doesn’t reflect off of the moon at all, and from our perspective on Earth, the night sky appears to be completely dark. For that reason, you can think of a new moon as a blank canvas on which you can paint your vision for the future. And you can take advantage of new moon energy by getting clear on and setting those goals for four days before and after the event occurs. 

In astrology, the moon speaks to your emotions, intuition, nurturing style, and when it’s new, you could feel a heightened sense of possibility, hopefulness and connection to your feelings. New moons also present a chance to plant seeds that you can watch grow over the following two weeks (up until the next full moon) and the following six months (when we’ll experience the corresponding full moon).

What is the new moon in Aquarius?

February’s new moon in Aquarius asks you to open yourself up to groundbreaking, game-changing realizations — perhaps especially related to how you can better celebrate what makes you unique, connect with a group of friends or colleagues or take action that promotes the greater good for your community. 

That’s because Aquarius is associated with the eleventh house of networking, groups and long-term wishes, so this lunar event fuels humanitarian pursuits and team efforts. It’s a chance to feel more connected, nurture platonic bonds and embrace progressive, future-minded ideas.

The 2024 new moon in Aquarius: Prepare for unpredictability and excitement 

The new moon occurs at 20 degrees of Aquarius, while Uranus, the planet of originality and invention, sits at 19 degrees of fellow fixed sign Taurus, meaning that the two connect in a challenging but also activating square. The moon oversees our intuition and how we process our emotions while Uranus’ job is to shake up anything mundane or stagnant. For that reason, you could be caught off-guard by shocking feelings that pop up out of nowhere and the impulse to act on emotions or a gut feeling without spending too much time thinking it through.

Aquarius itself, as a sign ruled by Uranus, is already associated with innovation and striking out against convention, but you add this square to the game-changing planet to the mix, and you can easily identify a bright, shiny, out-of-the-box approach to achieving your aspirations. At the same time, both Aquarius and Taurus are two of the fixed signs, meaning that both are innately resolute but also obstinate. In turn, around the days of this new moon, you may notice a tendency — in yourself or others — to engage in stubborn, black-and-white thinking. The fix: doing your best to be adaptable and open to unexpected twists and turns. 

The 2024 new moon in Aquarius: Boosts your confidence 

Just after the moon squares off against Uranus, Mercury, the planet of communication, traveling through Aquarius will square off against Jupiter, the planet of expansion and abundance, in Taurus, which powers optimistic thinking and interactions. If you’ve come up with a winning strategy that you simply can’t wait to kick off in order to hit your new moon goal, Mercury’s connection to lucky Jupiter can set the stage for you to make a presentation or send in a proposal to get the ball rolling. You’ll feel fired up as your self-assurance soars. 

And as the new moon energy dissipates, Mars, the planet of action and energy, pairs up with Pluto, the planet of power and transformation, in Aquarius on Wednesday, February 14. This planetary meet-up amplifies any desire to make your mark and make your most ambitious dreams a reality. Given just how intense the Aquarian energy is now, the more you can embrace marching to the beat of your own drum, the greater and more fulfilling the upshot. 

Here, how the Aquarius new moon will affect you based on your sign. (Be sure to read both your sun and your rising sign if you know it. If you don’t, you can find it in your birth chart or by using this CafeAstrology calculator.)
