January's new Moon is a partial solar eclipse. A solar eclipse occurs when the Moon passes between Earth and the Sun, thereby totally or partially obscuring Earth's view of the Sun. A partial solar eclipse occurs in the polar regions of the Earth when the center of the moon's shadow misses the earth.
Occurring on January 30 in the United States and January 31 in Australia, the Aquarian new Moon is an interesting one that promises inspiration, change and a deeper understanding of ones' place in the world.

The Taurus new Moon is a very interesting new Moon, and, it's likely to be a very powerful one. For a start, there is so much earth energy in amongst it all, and, Pluto is almost exactly in a powerful trine aspect with it (= in a trine aspect with the Sun and the Moon).
It's a very meaningful lunation, and one that is bound to bring all kinds of energies to the table. The new Moon is in a trine aspect with Saturn, which can have us feeling the need to get organised, to lighten our loads, to free up energies that have been seemingly stationary for some time.
The Aries new Moon falls on March 31 in Australia and March 30 in the United States. This is a fairly firey new Moon with Uranus positioned just two degrees after it, which means that the hours and days following the new Moon could be rather interesting, perhaps unpredictable, explosive, revolutionary, life-changing, etc.
The Pisces full Moon occurs on August 31 and it brings some interesting messages with it. It is conjunct Chiron, the Wounded Healer and The Stories We Tell Ourselves, and it gives us a chance to figure out just what those stories are and how relevant they are to our lives. The next full Moon, occurring on September 30, is conjunct Uranus, so it seems that we can have a look at how to engage Chiron to effect a healing and then to make use of Uranus in order to make some decisions next month.
Occurring on April 10, the Aries new Moon is another very powerful lunation. With such a line-up in Aries - Uranus, the Sun, the Moon, Mars, Eris and Venus all in Aries - the energies are bound to be heightened, to say the least.
Occurring on October 23 in Australia and October 22 in the United States, October's full Moon is the second full Moon in a row in Aries. Last month's full Moon was on the first degree of Aries - this month's full Moon is on the last degree of Aries. The Sabian Symbol for this full Moon is Aries 30: A Duck Pond And Its Brood.
