If You Run Into Your Ex This Month, Blame The New Moon In Aquarius

  • The new moon in Aquarius is happening on February 9, 2024.

  • This lunar event will push you to expected the unexpected and stay true to yourself.

  • The new moon impacts all zodiac signs, but Aquarius and Taurus will feel it the most.

You know the feeling you get when you run into an old high school classmate when you're out grocery shopping? Or maybe your dishwasher randomly stops working and all you feel is transparent surprise (and *possibly* some other negative feelings)? Well, you'll want to get acquainted with that discomfort because it'll be plentiful during this month's new moon in Aquarius.

This astrological event takes place on February 9, 2024, and it’ll make you want to avoid anything where you don’t feel like you can be yourself, according to Donna Page, a certified astrologer in Atlanta.

It’s a lot more complicated than that, though. Here’s what your zodiac sign can expect from the new moon in Aquarius, as well as what it means for your future.

What does the new moon in Aquarius mean for your sign?

Let’s back up a moment: The moon goes through different phases every month, and a new moon is when it looks all but invisible from the earth. In astrology, each new moon lines up with a different zodiac sign, giving it a certain feel. While this new moon will impact all of the signs, Page says Aquarius and Taurus will feel it the most.

This particular new moon is in the sign of Aquarius and is connected with Uranus, a planet that wants you to expect the unexpected. That sounds bad, but it's not (promise!). Just don’t be surprised if you happen to run into your ex on the subway and have a nice conversation—or your boss decides to make you the lead on a new project when there are more senior people on your team. Rest assured, these events won't be anything Earth-shaking, but they'll definitely be interesting enough to take note of.

At the same time, you’ll push back on doing anything that makes you feel restricted or just not like yourself. You might decide to skip a concert you're not that excited about, or opt out of a club with a dress code that's not your vibe. Heck, this feeling will even translate into your work situation, and maybe even have you rethinking it: While you always have to be professional in the workplace, do you feel like you’re still able to be yourself on some level, or is your current gig sucking the life out of you? Just something to consider…

Fortunately, you’ll also have a big desire to connect with people who get you. Maybe you prioritize spending time with close friends over an intimate dinner instead of going out in big groups during this new moon.

How will the new moon in Aquarius impact the rest of your year?

Well, the new moon in Aquarius will bring some unexpected events your way, so naturally, it’ll teach you to be a little more comfortable just rolling with things. Sure, you can’t be prepared for everything, but you can learn to be more flexible.

Also, leaning into your authentic self is always a good thing. While you're bound to feel a bit out of your comfort zone from time to time, making decisions based on what feels right to you—and not what everyone else is doing—will help you feel happier and more confident going forward.

Finally, spending time with the people you love who understand who you truly are will help you to feel supported in whatever is coming up next.

When is the next new moon?

The next new moon is on March 10, 2024 in the sign of Pisces. During this new moon, you’ll feel a little more creative than usual. For now, enjoy just rolling with things—because life happens.
