What does the Aquarius moon & year of the Wood Dragon mean for the new lunar year?

What a week we have, so much magic in the air and the planets brings us healing and a higher knowing, can you feel it and where in your life it effects you the most? ~ This Friday on the 9th of February do we have the New Moon in Aquarius and on the same day its a New start of the lunar year and also the year of the Wood Dragon begins. Wow so what does all this mean you might think?


If we start with the new lunar year that is a celebration of the arrival of spring and the beginning of a new year on the lunisolar calendar. It is the most important holiday in China, and it is also widely celebrated in South Korea, Vietnam, and countries with a significant overseas Chinese population. The new year bring us the energy of the Wood Dragon. It is the year where we build our foundation, we start something new and we want to gain stability and building new foundations for ourself. The energy of Wood in Chinese medicine stands for spring, growth, and knowledge and that is what you will seek this year for yourself and that can appear in many ways.

The Dragon is one of the most auspicious signs in the Chinese zodiac because of its ability to swim, fly, walk on land, and travel between between dimensions. The dragon represents power, courage and magic, but is also a symbol of peace and the need to come together as one.

The Year of the Dragon is said to be a prosperous and a year of luck where innovation and business can flourish, and we can step into a greater power and authenticity. The Dragon will help us to create new beginnings, plant new seeds, and allow our garden to flourish.


The Aquarius new moon will make us feel a longing for freedom, innovation, and doing things in a new and different way. Aquarian energy wants to play the game in our own way and rhythm. But it can also feel like a sharp energy that bring up feelings and wounds, of shame and not being good enough.

Aquarius ruling planet Uranus will also be active during the new moon, it may bring us a feeling of a shaky earthquake, so we might have to suddenly change our plans to get more creativity and freedom. Flow with the Uranus energy and trust in your own process. Chiron and the North Node will join the party just a few days after the new moon, but its energy will we feel already today. It will encourages healing on the deepest of levels, both on a personal and global level. Aquarius is also very much the sign of the healer and are are bringing the gifts of psychic and intuitive abilities, and spiritual insights. 

Aquarius our water bearer, the mystical healer who bestows water, or life, upon the land. This gift of transmutation that Aquarius bring us will be powerful to use for more healing and peace to our world. But remember it all starts with yourself. ~ Have a beautiful Aquarius new moon and may it bring you the healing you need. Love Hanna
