January’s New Moon in Aquarius

January 21st, 2023

The first new moon of the new year is ripe with fresh opportunities, dripping with inspiration and exploding forth like a shotgun filled with stars across the galaxy – electric and twinkling orbs of pure magic filled with our wildest dreams and our most free and untamed thoughts – ready to be unleashed into the new year.

Hasn’t exactly felt that way? You and us all, dear friend! With both Mercury AND Mars having been spinning around in retrograde, the energy has really sucked the motivation out from under our wings.

If you have been down on yourself asking, “Isn’t January supposed to be all about bright new beginnings, jotting down exciting plans and aspirations and charging headfirst into our New Year’s goals and resolutions?” only to be left feeling a bit… lacking?

Well, you are not alone! For most of us, it’s definitely been a bit of a slow start, BUT, the energy that culminates within this next new moon is going to make things a lot more interesting.

The unapologetic nature of Aquarius serves to let loose our rebellious energy, prompting us to:

Whether you are so bold as to be breaking a few outdated rules, saying screw you to a level of conformity that no longer serves you or giving the middle finger (metaphorically of course) to the man, the patriarchy, etc… or whether you are shaking things up more quietly by shifting your role at home, asking for that raise at work or presenting yourself to the World in a different way, now is the time to be fully unafraid to make your voice heard.

Now is the time to stop worrying about what other people think and break out of those self-imposed chains that society, or you yourself, has shackled upon you.

Once you realize that other people’s opinions are actually none of your business, you can be fully free to be your one-of-a-kind-Self!

With the planet Venus (with its focus on love) and the planet Jupiter (with its focus on commitment) orbiting around the perimeter, you may find yourself immersing yourself more deeply into your romantic relationships and furthering your commitments.

Although these kinds of deep dives into relationships can surface our shadow sides and patterning, this energy also brings the gifts of strengthening connection and unified support.

True partnership allows us to work with these parts of ourselves that aren’t always the easiest to look at, and recognize that our partners not only fully accept us, but at their best they champion our highest learning and growth on all levels – personally, and within partnership.


Exciting Clinic Updates!

You heard that right, Folks! Plans are now underway to begin preparations for an expansion/ renovation to build out two new treatment rooms into our workshop space in the Spring/ Summer of 2023!

Well Wishes to our Registered Kinesiologist Emely Cook

As she embarks on her Maternity Leave and Motherhood Journey!

This past year, we have been so truly honored to have had Emely do her practicum hours with us at The Garden, and then begin her career in working with us as a Registered Kinesiologist specializing in Emotions and Metaphysical Kinesiology!

As Emely prepares to take her Maternity Leave come mid-February to welcome her son with her husband this March, we want to send Emely a heartfelt thank you for having shared her beautiful energy and her educational skills with all of us at The Garden, practitioners and patients alike!

Wishing you and your sweet family ALL THE LOVE, Emely!
