The February Aquarius New Moon (Supermoon) Awakens Magical Collaborations 

The February 9 Aquarius new moon is the first supermoon of 2024. Embrace the spirit of innovation and go find your people. Your horoscope for the Aquarius new moon and the start of the Year of the Dragon!

The spirit of unity is in the air!

The year’s only Aquarius new moon arrives this February 9 at 5:59 PM EST—an event that happens during Aquarius season each year. Break out of the box with style and social expression, connecting to community, activism and humanitarian work.

If you’re still searching for your 2024 dream team, pay attention to who shows up near this date. Aquarius is the sign of groups, which means you don’t necessarily have to start finding people one by one. Scout out existing organizations that mirror your values and ideals. It might be easier to join as a member than form your squad from scratch.

Log in and look around! Since Aquarius is the sign of technology you may vibe with an online community or mastermind.

And if you feel like generally getting geeky, this is one of the best days of the year to experiment with new technology and techniques.

The 2024 Aquarius New Moon Is A Supermoon

During a supermoon, the new moon arrives at the closest possible distance to the Earth. Its fresh-start momentum could be amplified, so spring into action when you feel the urge.

The Year of the Dragon Begins

The Aquarius new moon also marks the start of The Year of the Dragon!

The Aquarius new moon always dovetails with Lunar New Year’s Eve, the moment when our astrological animals post a change of guard. We say farewell to the spiritual, abundant Water Rabbit and hello to the fierce but structured Wood Dragon, from February 10 to January 29, 2025.

Everything “certain” is up for examination with an Aquarius new moon

That could lead to some lively debates. This is, after all, the zodiac sign that wants to give everyone a seat at the table. So: Where could you open your mind a little wider?

Inclusivity is more essential than ever during this open-minded lunar lift. Seek to welcome a wide spectrum of viewpoints and personalities. You don’t create a chorus with everyone singing the same note, right?

Love Notes About The Aquarius New Moon

While the moon is emotional, Aquarius is rational, so their dance can be an awkward one. Think of the Aquarius new moon as a day to unite heart and head. That’s a theme that everyone could benefit from in 2024!

If you could wave a magic wand over your love life, what would you create—and with whom? The new moon in Aquarius, the sign of hopes and wishes, evokes romantic idealism.

Why not visualize every possibility instead of simply settling for what’s in front of you? We’re all set in our ways. How you choose to level up your love life is up to you.

Aries (March 21-April 19)

No one crushes life alone, not even a self-reliant Ram, and on February 9, the Aquarius new moon offers some eye-opening reminders. With this fresh-start energy firing up your eleventh house of teamwork and technology, look around and see who’s is pulling their weight and lending inspiration to the squad—and who’s dragging others down with their toxic attitude?

You shoot, you score! The only Aquarius new moon of the year fires up your tenth house of professional ambitions beginning February 9. It could send you on an accelerated trajectory to the top of the food chain. It’s also Lunar New Year’s Eve—and it’s Wood Dragon time—so you’ll be ready to soar to new heights. That’s all well and good, but what, exactly, are you aiming for? You won’t be able to measure success if you’re not clear on your goals and desired compensation.

Over the next two weeks (manifesting time for this new moon), think long and hard about your desires and try to imagine where you’d like to be in six months. Once you have the picture, you can start taking the first steps toward your dream. Read more Taurus horoscopes.

But you have to make the effort and show the universe—and yourself—that you mean business. Fortunately, you’ll get some help from the dynamic and sexy Wood Dragon, who takes charge as the “guardian animal” of 2024 as Lunar New Year’s Eve begins at the Aquarius new moon!

The next two weeks are peak manifesting time, so come up with a realistic set of goals and timeline to achieve them, then slowly roll out the changes.

That said, you’ll be up for a fitness challenge—one that lasts longer than 21 days! February 9 is also Lunar NYE and the energizing Wood Dragon pumps you up with motivation and energy. Read more Virgo horoscopes.

Libra (September 23-October 22)

Your mojo is rising—palpably!—as February 9’s new moon in Aquarius electrifies your fifth house of amour and glamour and makes you quite the scene stealer. Come on out of hiding if you’ve been flying under the radar. It’s also Lunar NYE and the flamboyant Wood Dragon is leading the parade for the rest of 2024. (Farewell, fluffy, fearful Water Rabbit.)

Scorpio (October 23-November 21)

Regardless of who’s been showing you interest on Twitter, TikTok or at the grocery store, give your inner circle the highest priority. February 9 marks the year’s only new moon in Aquarius, and it’s heating up your sentimental, domestic fourth house. You might be fixated on spending more time at Chez Scorpio over the next two weeks. Cooking, baking, watching movies or feathering the nest sound like dream activities. If you have a safe friend group you’re seeing, you may be keen to organize a Hygge gathering or maybe get together on a food-based cleanse.

The Aquarius new moon also marks Lunar New Year’s Eve and the dynamic, inspiring Wood Dragon sets you up for maximum growth. Think about who belongs in your “thunder” (a group of dragons) for the rest of 2024. Pro tip: Give VIP access to confident superstars who know how to both shine AND be supportive.

Sagittarius (November 22-December 21)

If you’ve been feeling uninspired, February 9’s new moon in Aquarius and your curious third house can revive your spirits. You can bust out of any rut by dabbling with a new DIY project, teaching yourself something from a YouTube video or even signing up for a class. This new moon fires up your social life—and in experimental Aquarius, you could find your soul squad by dabbling in different spaces, both IRL and virtually. Steer clear of activities that put too many demands on your time though. It’s also Lunar NYE and with the independent Wood Dragon reigning for the rest of 2024, you’ll need to come and go as you please. Read more Sagittarius horoscopes.

Capricorn (December 22-January 19)

The Aquarius new moon stokes your second house of money and security, putting you on a mission to increase your bottom line. The next two weeks are extra-ripe with opportunity, but even when lucky breaks do come your way, remember, you still have to act on them. Start putting out the word about whatever you’re seeking: freelance opportunities, a new gig, investment advice. You’re ready to step up to the next level of prosperity, and as a future-oriented Capricorn, you are innately strategic!

Fortunately, you’ll get an extra dose of magic for any money moves starting the night of the Aquarius new moon—Lunar NYE—when the magic-making Wood Dragon takes command for the rest of 2024. Read more Capricorn horoscopes.

Aquarius (January 20-February 18) 

Ready, set, update your operating system!  The year’s only new moon in Aquarius on February 9 in your first house spreads some major manifesting seeds that will sprout over the coming six months. But don’t underestimate the power of this fresh-start energy, especially since it’s also Lunar New Year’s Eve and the powerful Wood Dragon begins to soar. While you might only be sowing seedlings, by the Aquarius full moon on August 19, 2024, they could be mighty beanstalks. Over the next two weeks, refine your master plan, revising as necessary. But then be ready to hit the ground running as you pursue this grandiose dream. Read more Aquarius horoscopes.

Pisces (February 19-March 20)

Focus, Pisces! You’ve been barreling ahead at a way-too-manic pace lately, and February 9’s Aquarius new moon in your restorative twelfth house will come as blessed relief. You prefer to mull ideas and really FEEL your way to an answer, and you’ll finally get that chance over the coming two weeks. While you’re meditating, journaling or taking long, bundled-up walks, think about whether it’s also time to let something or someone go.

That’s the first step before the deep healing process can begin in earnest. Think of it as “toughening up your scales,” which is an appropriate metaphor as the evening’s celebration of Lunar NYE ushers in the Year of the Wood Dragon. You’ll be in demand, making it essential for you to learn when to say yes and when to say no, thank u. Read more Pisces horoscopes.
