SUPER MOON JANUARY 30 2014
The Aquarius new Moon on January 30 is a Super Moon, meaning it's the second new Moon within a single month. The Moon -- or Black Moon -- will also be closer to Earth than normal, accentuating its energy and influence.
This Moon also ushers in the Lunar New Year -- Year of the Horse.
For those born on the year of the horse, they will encounter the Year of Birth (Benming Nian). It is believed they will offend Taisui, the god in charge of fortune, so their finances may fluctuate. In terms of career, it is advised to keep the peace between colleagues.
For those not born on a horse year, the year ahead will bring health and prosperity. It is said to be an excellent time to travel, as the next 12 months will bring good luck. You are advised to mingle with the locals, savour authentic cuisine and discover somewhere you have never been before.
With so many intense lunar influences on this much-celebrated day, it's clear 2014 will be a year of much change and movement.
A Super Moon can lead to extreme tides. Symbolically water represents emotion, so you may experience more extreme highs or lows under this Super Moon phenomenon. With quirky Uranus aligning with this lunar equation, this may be a time of some chaos, but it also brings about the possibility for great change, innovation and invention.
