The First New Moon of the decade takes place on Friday, January 24 in air sign Aquarius. A new moon is a time when the Sun and the Moon come together, marking the first lunar phase. This particular new moon is especially good for air signs (Aquarius, Gemini, Libra) and fire signs (Aries, Leo, Sagittarius). However, the water (Scorpio, Pisces, Cancer) and the earth signs (Taurus, Virgo, Capricorn) may find it more challenging.
At the time of this new moon, both the Sun and the Moon square Uranus in Taurus, the natural ruler of Aquarius, urging us to breakthrough from our routine and our comfort zone and realise what matters most to us and what has to be changed for something new to happen.
