From an astronomical perspective, the New Moon corresponds to the lunar phase during which the moon is situated between the Earth and the Sun. It is very difficult to observe the New Moon because it is located too close to the Sun. Indeed, the New Moon marks the point at which we turn over a new leaf and is the ideal time to start new things or initiate new projects 💪. During this period, we are encouraged to sow our seeds, so, if you’re planning for a baby, it's worth knowing that the New Moon is the ideal period for conceiving a child.

February 10, 2024, New Moon in Aquarius
During a New Moon, the Sun and Moon are next to each other, on the same degree of the Zodiac, so it's a Sun/Moon conjunction. Here, the Sun and Moon are conjoined in Aquarius. A New Moon always represents a renewed opportunity, sometimes a fresh starting point! 😎 Under the sign of Aquarius, it broadens our perspective, stimulating our spiritual openness and receptivity towards others. It encourages us to focus on our relationships as a whole, encompassing our social network and friend circle. Often, it makes us more flexible and sociable. Simultaneously, it awakens our inventive spirit, guiding us to discover original ideas and new concepts.
By encouraging reflection and planning, it encourages a pragmatic approach to achieving our goals. The New Moon in Aquarius encourages us to take our destiny into our own hands, laying solid foundations for personal and professional growth. It's a good time to cultivate discipline, focus and persistence, qualities that are essential for overcoming obstacles.
What can we expect on the evening of February 10?
This New Moon in Aquarius is Square Uranus. A Square is a tense aspect, often considered negative, but it's also a dynamic aspect because it creates tension that urges action. With Uranus, this month's New Moon can therefore prompt us to break free from conventional paths, to gain audacity, to launch an initiative we haven't dared before, to project ourselves into the future.
What's my advice? 🗒️ It's not about staying stagnant; it's rather the moment to seize our opportunity, change our habits, knock on new doors if we want assistance, approach where we haven't yet, free ourselves from a relationship holding us back, etc.🚀🔥
👉 Everyone is impacted by the "New Moon" but the signs most affected here are Aquarius, Leo, Gemini, Libra, Aries, Sagittarius, Taurus, and Scorpio. Our ascendant signs are also impacted too; if you are unsure of yours, calculate your rising sign here.

What is the New Moon, and what does it actually do?
From an astronomical point of view, the New Moon occurs when the Moon finds itself in between the Earth and the Sun, meaning it's impossible to observe in the sky because the illuminated side shines away from us. During this stage, the Sun, and the Moon are next to each other, on the same degree of the zodiac, forming a Sun conjunct Moon composition.
This monthly cycle has huge impacts that we must pay attention to, especially with regard to our moods and bodies 🤸. Indeed, it symbolizes a second chance and blesses you with a clean slate. That's why it's the perfect time to meditate, plan and organize your next steps towards success. In short, its purifying energy helps you in your reflection and analysis.
Despite this dimly lit phase, we know that the sky hasn't been abandoned and that the Moon will appear again. The absence of light during this phase can be destabilizing, although, if you embrace the darkness, you'll soon understand that it can be a doorway to any possibility and the energy contained in your intentions will soon manifest.
What are the benefits of a New Moon?
In short, this cycle gives us the courage to make the most of our new beginning. Indeed, it's a time of darkness and pause, yet it's full of possibilities, for us to write a beautiful next chapter to our lives. It embodies the essence of a new beginning, or searching, pausing, preparing, and planning processes that set our plans in motion 💃. Furthermore, it can also be seen as a time when the beautiful feminine qualities of reflection and presence take precedence over the masculine principles of action and dynamism. That's right, the New Moon encourages us to think and prepare before taking action.
If you have a professional or romantic project, delve into it during this phase, and then, 15 days later, the Full Moon will illuminate the sky, and it may bring you success and some good news!
