February 2019 Astrology ~ New Moon, New You!
The New Moon on Monday February 4, 2019 at 15° Aquarius is very fortunate. The New February 2019 astrology is the best of any moon phase for over a year. Sun, Moon and Mercury sextile Jupiter bring good luck, good news, optimism, generosity and happiness.
The February 2019 new moon also sits at the midpoint of Saturn sextile Neptune to bring spiritual wisdom and help make your dreams come. This is a generous, charitable and philosophical new moon of hope and goodwill.
New Moon Meaning
A new moon represents the end of one cycle and the beginning of another new 28 day cycle. Sun conjunct Moon gives an invigorating burst of energy and initiative. So this is an excellent time for making a fresh start, turning over a new leaf, or starting a new project. You can also question old habits, behaviors and beliefs as you search for new and inventive ways to make progress.
The effects of the February 4 new moon will last four weeks up to the March 6 New Moon. The best time for making a fresh start and for beginning new projects is during the first two weeks of this new moon cycle. This waxing phase of the Moon lasts from February 4 to the February 19 Full Moon.

There are no major fixed stars conjunct this new moon. But I will discuss the minor stars in Delphinus Constellation after describing the most important planetary aspects.
Mercury Sextile Jupiter
The new moon conjunct Mercury brings a focus on thinking and communication. The new moon sextile Jupiter adds hope, goodwill, generosity and happiness. Opportunities for material and spiritual growth can increase your wealth and bring success and contentment. The orbs for these two aspects are not particularly strong but they combine as Mercury sextile Jupiter, which is strong at only 1°32′.
Mercury sextile Jupiter gives positive thinking, a broad outlook and good decision-making skills. You can clearly visualize the preferred path ahead to plan your future. Good communication skills and open self-expression improve relationships. This is a good new moon for socializing and making new friends and business contacts. Diplomacy and tact are helpful for business negotiations and legal matters.
The easy uptake of ideas and good concentration mean you can study or sit exams with less stress than usual. You could also increase your general knowledge and expand your horizons through travel and adventure.
Good news and good luck can increase your level of happiness and satisfaction. This new moon should foster cordial political and religious discussion. Social and humanitarian causes should gain positive media attention.
Saturn Sextile Neptune
Saturn sextile Neptune brings material gain from spiritual pursuits. You can make your dreams come true with hard work and a sensible, realistic approach. You will understand your own limitations but be optimistic at the same time.
Spiritual wisdom brings the patience and self-discipline to sacrifice short-term gratification for long-term success. You can also help make other people’s dream come true through practical help and spiritual support.
New moon February 2018 is ideal for self-reflection, dreaming and meditation. You could make prayer and ritual part of your daily routine. Devotion and service to others will bring satisfaction and contentment at the spiritual level.
New Moon Stars
The star chart above clearly shows the new moon in the middle of Capricorn Constellation in the Sky. But new moon February 2019 is at 15° Aquarius Sign in the Zodiac. This is because Capricorn Constellation lies between 3° and 27° Aquarius Sign.
When our Zodiac was invented over 2000 years ago, the Signs roughly aligned with the Constellations from which they were named. But the precession of the equinoxes has moved the Signs backward relative to the Stars by over 27°, or nearly one whole Sign.
New Moon February 2019 is conjunct two stars in the minor constellation of Delphinus the Dolphin.
Delphinus gives cheerfulness, pleasure, travel, and love of hunting and sport in general. But also little happiness, dissembling and duplicity, and danger of suffering from ingratitude. 
The Dolphin is the sky emblem of philanthropy. It denotes an individual devoted to his children and of a very religious nature. The constellation presages good fortune in regards the sea. 
New Moon February 2019 conjunct asteroid 29 Amphitrite may not add so much to the astrology but it sure is interesting given the close association between the Dolphin and Amphitrite in Greek mythology.
Amphitrite was a sea goddess and the queen of the sea. Once upon a time Poseidon saw her dancing in the waves and was so turned on he proposed to her. But she was shy and fled far away to preserve her virginity. So Poseidon sent his messenger the Dolphin to find her and persuade her to marry him, which he did, and they all lived happily ever after.
