Moon in Aquarius Cord Cutting Ritual
When the Moon is in Aquarius it is a great time to cut the cords of attachment/negative emotions because there is no better sign than Aquarius who knows how to set healthy boundaries. An Aquarius full moon is best, but this ritual will work at any time.
You will need:
- 1 Tumbled or raw Citrine Crystal
- 1 Yellow Candle
Light the candle, hold the stone in your dominant hand. Call upon Archangel Michael and ask him to clear all the unhealthy energetic cords that are between you and the person (you know who he or she is).
Now focus on your Solar Plexus Chakra (3 inches above the navel) and the Solar plexus Chakra of the person you are working on and visualize Archangel Michael cutting the cords (you can even use your hand as a virtual scissor and act like you are really cutting the cords and Archangel Michael is helping you with it, either way is fine). Place your virtual scissor right at your Solar Plexus Chakra and cut it thrice.
By cutting the cords you are not cutting any relationship with that person but you are clearing away all the unhealthy negative energies like co-dependency, jealousy, possessiveness that are tied to you. Once the cords are cut you will enjoy a healthy relationship and you no longer absorb that person’s energy.
You can do this exercise whenever you feel its required. If you are an Empath its even more important to do this exercise because you tend to pick up people’s energies easily.

Aquarians are believed to be sympathetic, peace-loving, and strong-willed. They are independent, tolerant, broad-minded, intellectual humanitarians. Aquarians are progressive thiners, and are constantly looking ahead. They sometimes give the impression of being detached or aloof, as they can remove their emotions from everyday events.
From 365 Goddess, we have this for today:
- Themes: Justice; Tradition; Zeal; Femininity
- Symbols: Fire; Water
- Number: Nine
- Presiding Goddess: Oya
A Yoruban mother goddess and spirit of the river Niger. Oya flows with us through the last day of January, strengthening our passion for and appreciation of life. She is wild and irrepressible, like the fire she’s said to have created, yet Oya presides over matters of fairness and custom, using that fire as the light of truth. Artistic depictions of Oya show a nine-headed woman whose bosom speaks of fertile femininity.
To Do Today:
Enjoy a glass of water when you get up to begin generating Oya’s zest for life in your body and soul. This is also very suited to the energies of the day. Aquarius represents the Water Bearer who continually pours inspiring, creative waters from celestial spheres into our lives.
Get out and do something today. Invoke Oya through your pleasure and pure excitement. Dare to dream; then try to make that dream come true somehow.
If there’s some area in your life that needs more equity, try making this Oya charm:
Take any small candle and carve Oya’s name into it. Have a glass of water nearby. Light the candle to invoke the goddess. Hold the water over the candle, saying:
What injustice consumes,
Oya’s waters quell.
Drop a little water on the candle, then trim off the taper, carrying it with you to draw justice to you.

One of the standout characteristics of those born under the Sun Sign of Aquarius is their unwillingness to follow the beaten track. With advancement and progress on their minds, there can be an irreverence to old and outdated ways of thinking and doing things.
Many Aquarians aim to free themselves of personal and social conditioning. Although open to change in theory, Aquarians can be surprisingly stubborn. Their idealism runs strong, but they can be very fixed in their opinions.
Often a bit aloof and even standoffish, Aquarians nonetheless are usually well-liked. They are curious and observant, and tolerant in a broad sense. Prejudice and bias is offensive to the typical Aquarius.
Aquarians are generally very clever, witty, and intellectual. They value progress and frankness. It’s difficult to throw Aquarians for a loop—they’re generally on top of things.
There is a bit of reformer in Aquarius. They’ll try to get you to see through superficiality, and encourage you to be open and forthright. “Be true to yourself” and “Don’t follow the crowd” are mottos we easily associate with this sign.
Aquarians need space and value personal freedom. Any attempt to box them in will likely fail. They’ll happily return the favor; and they will treat people from all walks of life as equals. Equality and fairness are hallmarks of the sign. If you’re quirky and “different”, all the better.
