Harnessing New Moon in Aquarius Manifesting Potential through Wishes and Affirmations! Friday, January 24th, 2020

New Moons are a time for rebirth, new beginnings and new opportunities.  Energetically, this time carries powerful potential for focusing your intentions, allowing you to plant the ‘seeds’ that will bring your dreams into reality.  

The 2020 New Moon in Aquarius will occur at 2:42pm EST on Friday, January 24th, at 4º22. This New Moon will occur on the cusp to Capricorn, and so you can also tune into Capricorn energy as you perform this month’s manifesting rituals!

Aquarius Vibes

Aquarius energy is distinctively unconventional, rebellious, independent, strategic, objective and emotionally detached. It represents breaking away from traditional ways of thinking, as well as the REDISCOVERY of ancient wisdom. It’s focused on the ‘big picture’ and issues we face collectively as a society.

This New Moon is a great time to reflect on the trajectory of your ‘big dreams’, as well as the communities with whom you most identify.  It’s time to objectively evaluate whether your circle of friends and acquaintances truly reflects your personal values and ideals in life.  See more below about what to wish for when the New Moon is in Aquarius!

This can also be a time to cleanse or let go of associating with anyone who does not align with your highest vibrations.

Capricorn Vibes

Capricorn energy is expressed through your pursuit of respect and recognition in the world. This energy rules your ambitions and who you are as a leader, as well as the rewards that come with accomplishment. It rules your idea of success itself.

Capricorn vibes represent discernment, precision and integrity in action. This archetype lives to play the game and does so with remarkable patience and self-discipline. It’s also highly strategic, instinctively recognizing and seizing opportunities. Shadow expressions to be mindful of will include shrewdness, emotional detachment, a prohibitive emphasis on rules, and cynicism masked as realism.

In its highest vibrations, Capricorn energy represents bringing your personal gifts and ideals into the world through the role you play in your public life.


New Moons are the time to set or refocus your intentions, making wishes for the future and even meditating on positive affirmations which support these developments.  New Moon energy is the most potent time to ask the universe (or spirit) to support bringing your dreams into reality.  Developing a personal New Moon practice or ritual to tap into this energy, you can consciously plant your energetic seeds for the future.

Before making your New Moon wishes and affirmations, reflect on all that you are grateful for in your life.  You may even reflect on how you can let go of past grievances you are holding onto through a gesture of forgiveness.  Allow yourself to let go of energetic attachments to the past so that you have more energy to focus on your intentions for the future.

This time is generally optimistic and ripe with powerful potential; take a moment to tune into the subtle energy of new beginnings with a sense of curiosity and excitement.  This is a time to be willing to receive new opportunities that align with the greatest expressions of your gifts in the world.

Give yourself time to daydream or meditate on the ‘best possible outcomes’ for yourself, you may be surprised at what comes up!  From this meditation, write down your New Moon wishes.  These are the goals you are setting (or reaffirming) for yourself, whether personal, relationship, career, financial, family or otherwise.  Once you have done that, go back over each one and feel the feeling of that wish coming true.  Beside each wish, write a statement, in the present tense, which encapsulates how you will feel once the wish has come true.

You can also use the energy of the New Moon to ask for the ability to balance any shadow expressions of Scorpio energy, or to tap into the highest expressions of Scorpio vibes (see some suggestions for Scorpio New Moon wishes below!).

Awareness of how Scorpio energy is expressed for your personally through your natal chart can also to help guide you in setting your New Moon intentions.  A personal reading can reveal these as well as other insights.

In the days following the New Moon, do what you love and invest your energy in what truly motivates you.  Feel fully alive and know that you have the power to create positive changes in your life, whatever they may be.


When you make a wish, you feel hope, desire and intention. Your thoughts, emotions (and wishes) create energies that you send out into the universe and through the law of attraction, the universe works to echo the same energy back to you to make your wish come true.  When you make a wish on the New Moon, the energy of ‘new beginnings’ AMPLIFIES the energy of the wish you are making – it gives your wish more power to manifest!
