How The February 1 New Moon Will Affect You If You're An Aquarius

The new moon on February 1 is set to appear in the sky at 12:46 a.m. ET. However, for those who live in the central, mountain, and pacific time zones, the new moon will actually occur on Jan. 31, making it a rare "black moon." A "black moon" is a term used when there are two new moons in the same calendar month, per Forbes. The term is also used when there is no new moon in a month.

The lunar event falls under the sign of Aquarius, which is known for inspiration and innovation. The sign also rules community, which means that many members of the zodiac could feel the pull to get involved in their own communities by volunteering, donating, or even starting a brand new group of their own. "In western astrology, the spiritual meaning of this new moon is very similar — it's ideal for breaking away from the old and inviting in the new, while building foundations that are more aligned with who we are becoming," astrologer Narayana Montúfar tells Bustle.

For Aquarius, the full moon in January was a time of hustle and bustle. However, February's new moon will be a time to recharge.

Aquarius should take stock of their amazing qualities during the new moon on Feb. 1

According to Woman and Home, those born under the sign of Aquarius (Jan. 20 – Feb. 18), will have a strong sense of self during the new moon on February 1. The lunar event will be the right time for Aquarians to work on their self-confidence. Be sure to take some time for yourself and think about your worth, talents, skills, and all the things that make you amazing. Choose something that you love about yourself and focus on it to see how you may prosper from it.

Meanwhile, Bustle notes that embracing your one-of-a-kind traits will not only have you feeling confident and refreshed, but also push you to believe in your own power. This means that big things could lie ahead for Aquarius as they look to start off the new month with a bang and a fresh perspective about what they want and where they are headed.
