With the excitement of the new year winding down, and with January's lunar cycle behind us, we have the February 4, 2019 new moon in front of us — bringing forth a very different energy. January's lunar cycle was all about making big changes, confronting ourselves boldly, and mapping out new paths, but February's lunar cycle is different. Before you get overwhelmed, rest assured that I'm here providing you with mediations for the February 2019 new moon, so you'll be fully armed with tools and resources to handle whatever shifts or challenges arise. That said, February's new moon (which rises at 4:03 p.m. ET on Mon. Feb. 4) won't shake you if you know how to anticipate it.
Because January was all about self reflection and resolution, not just astrologically, but socially, there was a lot of momentum. We had energy coming from the universe, ourselves and our peers, all propelling us to look for truth and be progressive. By February, the excitement quells and people are set in their ways again. There's not this constant flood of energy that inspires you to look inside of yourself. Quite the opposite, February actually inspires you to close up and power forward. It becomes easier to lie to yourself and sit with unhealthy behaviors and elements rather than fight against them as you would have in January.
To ensure that February's new moon is a reflective and honest experience, you'll have to make some additional efforts to open yourself back up to the universe. If you don't take the time to look at yourself and your life and the choices you're making for yourself, you might risk overlooking toxins that are no longer serving you. To help you see clearly during the February new moon, I've put together a list of meditations that will open up your mind, inspire you to take a good look at yourself, and help you to see as clearly as possible.
