How The January 2 New Moon Will Affect You If You're An Aquarius

There's only one thing that represents new beginnings quite as powerfully as a new year — and that's new moons. It's no coincidence that the very first new moon of 2022 falls on the second day of the year. Right when the new year's resolutions are floating in the air, and the passion for change is in the wind. What better time to take a moment to reflect on the changes you're planning to make and bask in the new moon's energy to help you commit to them for the year.

2022's first new moon on January 2 is actually a super new moon in Capricorn, and it brings with it the motivation everyone needs to actually put some action behind their resolutions (via StyleCaster). It's important to embrace its energy and put it to use — here's exactly what this new moon means for you if you happen to be an Aquarius (January 20 – February 18).

It's time to be real with yourself and face your feelings

The Aquarian symbol represents truth and purity which is certainly accurate in terms of how upfront and real an Aquarius can be (via Cosmopolitan). Aquarians aren't ones to wear their heart on their sleeve, and tend to bury their emotions deep down — and this new moon it's time to dredge them up.

Use the power of this healing and renewing new moon to cope with the past, face the emotions you may have avoided over the past year, and clear your emotional path for all the good that is to come (via InStyle). Be as real with yourself as you are with others, get in touch with your inner desires and what you want to achieve this year, and manifest it into reality (via Bustle). New moons are perfect for setting new intentions, but really questioning yourself and hearing your inner desires is imperative to make the right moves to ensure you're where you want to be in a year's time.
