With the Lunar New Year starting with a New Moon, what lies ahead for you and what should you be mindful of? Tatler’s astrologer De Rui gives us a look ahead
Every Lunar New Year begins on a New Moon and the Year of the Rabbit kicks off on Sunday in the sign of Aquarius. This New Moon is a chance to set new goals and intentions for your independence, both in thought and in action. Insist right now on what you think is best, not just for you but for the bigger picture. The meeting of Venus and Saturn lends practicality to the atmosphere, and Uranus coming out of retrograde as well boosts our push for more freedom.
Long-term commitments, causes we are devoted to, and even our marriages give us something to believe in this week. We can be more optimistic about, and even romanticise, the things we care about for the long term. This is a time for re-commitments and renewals of faith in that which gives life a sense of meaning. Challenges to yours or others choices aren’t likely to be taken well.
Mercury came out of its retrograde last week but the potential for insulting words hangs in the air as the planet makes its way back over familiar territory. With Venus moving into Pisces on Friday, the potential exists for us to rise above any feelings of hurt from others’ barbs. The end of the week is a good time to tap into our powers of empathy.
