Last month, we had an incredible New Moon in Aquarius, and after the first New Moon Magic post, #radicalselflovecoven on Instagram went crazy! How did you celebrate the New Moon? I woke up just before the New Moon went direct, lit candles, set intentions, and did some spectacular goal-setting with a hot pink marker. It felt divine!
Well, it’s that time again! The New Moon happens next Wednesday/Thursday. Below, you’ll see that Mystic Medusa is giving you the rundown on what’s happening in the sky above, and I’ll tell you what you can do in your daily life to harness the power of the stars!

IN THE SKY… (Mystic Medusa)
This is the second New Moon in Aquarius in a row – so double-extra-awesome doses of innovative, electric fresh starts.
It is conjunct asteroid Hercules for oomph, guts, heart and tenacity – think Heroes Journey. But the key thing here is that it pings off the Mercury in Aquarius cycle, which began in early January and ends in mid-March.
This whole phase has been an innovative process, one in which we got to lucidly and with detachment gaze upon aspects of our life, routine and/or persona that you may have FELT were hard-wired into your psyche but no.
Not only have you been regenerating all this time –- a situation, relationship or attraction that needed space is most likely about to clarify. Many a nebulous situation is a hell of a lot more clear after this New Moon.
It’s also a quickening –- late Feb and through until April is the most intense and volatile time of this year –- the climax of the Zap Zone -– survival of the most innovative. So be ready, things move fast from this New Moon onwards.
Warrior Mars will be in Aries, his home base and the synch between Jupiter in golden Leo + Uranus encourages brazen expansion. You’ve been subtle, you’ve battled your demons and now it’s time to push forward in full Awesome.
ON THE GROUND… (Gala Darling)
Enjoy this time: things are about to start changing quickly, so this is the perfect New Moon to fill your mind with positivity. Let’s focus on what we want, rather than what we don’t want. Let’s go forward with happiness, optimism, and a sense of possibility!
HARNESS THE DAY
Different days of the week are good for different things. In this case, if the New Moon falls on a Wednesday in the part of the world you’re in, it’s ideal for spells or rituals related to your job or career, classes or education, travel, and research. However, if the New Moon is on Thursday, it’s better to do magic relating to money and finances, anything legal or related to the courts, spirituality, or personal development. This shouldn’t limit what you focus on, but it can give some additional guidance!
PURIFY YOUR DREAMS
What is it you want to bring to fruition? This is an ideal time to dream big and get ready to take equally bold action.
Find a quiet place where you can focus without interruptions. Take a few deep, grounding breaths, and start to think about what you’d like to bring into your life. On the top of a piece of paper, write “I accept these things — or something better — into my life now, for my highest good, and for the highest good of all concerned.” Underneath, write down everything you’d like to manifest and create in your life.
Once you’ve emptied your mind onto the page, visualise the paper glowing with a white, purifying light. Imagine that this glowing light is burning away all the angst, worry, and fear that is associated with you bringing these dreams into your life.
Supplement this process by burning a purple candle (great for ambition and dreams!) and keeping a selenite (excellent for mental clarity and decision-making) or citrine (helps with optimism, motivation and manifestation) crystal nearby!
When you feel like the paper has been cleansed, fold it up and put it somewhere meaningful. You might want to put it inside your pillowcase, place it underneath a crystal on your altar, or keep it in your wallet. It doesn’t matter where you keep it, as long as it will be close to you.
ALLOW YOURSELF TO EVOLVE
Over the past month, you may have noticed that the old stories you’ve been telling yourself are just that: stories. The great thing about stories is that we can change them whenever we want. It’s tremendously empowering to discard those old stories.
Take a cleansing magical shower, by thinking about all of the old stories that have held you back, and visualising them washing down the drain with the water. When you get out of the shower, fill your mind with positive affirmations and think them as you apply lotion or oil to your body. (I use Aura Glow after every shower, and it is sublime.)
EMBRACE ALL THINGS AQUARIAN
This is the moment to try out the Aquarian way of life. Aquarius is about shaking up the status quo, spending time with like-minded people, being your own guru, and freedom. Make time to:
Hang out with creative people who “get” you
Brainstorm solutions to any problems that are plaguing you
Meditate, do yoga, go within
Wear bright lipstick, or anything else that symbolises glamour
Figure out how to get more freedom in your life
Be yourself, gloriously and unabashedly… And stop living for an audience, whether real or imaginary!
Will you be giving any of these a try? I would lovelovelove to see and hear about your experiences! Just post them to Instagram with the hashtag #radicalselflovecoven!
Big dreamy hugs,
P.S. Happy Friday the 13th!
