Hello dear ones. The New Moon in Aquarius is just about upon us. Things are shifting more than ever. As I write this post. Much is going on that is leading up to a major Solar Eclipse in early March.. On February 6, Venus and Pluto were conjunct in Capricorn and squaring Uranus in Aries. This is part of the New Moon chart. That may explain many quirky kinds of behavior. There may be unexpected events or other energy that has an effect upon your love life or finances. And in the news- There was a 6.4 earthquake in Taiwan. North Korea apparently has launched a long range missile. Wall Street is still on its roller coaster ride.
Let’s look at the New Moon in Aquarius which arrives on Monday, February 8, 2016 at 9:40am EST; 6:40am PST; and 2:40pm GMT in 19 degrees 15’. The Sun is also in Aquarius. Both the Moon and Sun are in sextile aspect to Saturn in Sagittarius and Uranus in Aries. It is time to take a breath as you move forward from the last Full Moon in Leo where you had lots of fun and some new creative workings. It is time to say good-bye to your old ways. Stop sitting in that fear that shows up more often than not as you give into it instead of releasing it. With fear there is no love. Just remember that the next time it comes around. You know that nothing from the past is working anymore so why hang on? Step into your own truth and look at where your life is taking you. Stop and look and ponder the next months.
This New Moon in Aquarius is about being the visionary as a typical Aquarian would be. If you didn’t jump into the play mode when the Full Moon was here a couple weeks back then you may choose to do that now with this New Moon. At least take time to really sit back and reconnect to your new efforts for the next month. The New Moon is saying to you to look at your own unique abilities and talents. Since Uranus rules Aquarius it is a good time to look within and see the genius, mad scientist, the individualist, the independent thinker. Aquarius the water-bearer is pouring more and more universal consciousness into each and every one of you. Open to it.
This is the time for you to look at your own originality and how you can use it to better yourself and the world out there. No one will do it for you and it is about your individuality and sharing those unique ideas so others can benefit. This is time to move out of those old beliefs and patterns that you have had since childhood and open to the authentic you. This is not the time for being a martyr in relationships since it may be a time of rationalizing any problem. By the way, Mars in Scorpio is square this New Moon in Aquarius, You can take the combustible energy and direct it into some project or it will explode in ways that may be destructive emotionally. This can seep into a sexual arena and if either partner is unwilling to express sexually then a deep anger can emerge Of course, this depends where it is in you natal chart. And watch out for ego conflicts. Who is trying to rule you? Lilith is trining the New Moon so you may want to take your any unexpressed pent-up energy and create something out of the box. You many feel a bit more sensitive than usual and not especially like anyone’s critical remarks. While Mars brings the sexual aspect to this New Moon, dear Venus in Capricorn is saying to use her trine to Jupiter/ North Node in Virgo to purify yourself through creative projects that truly represent you.
Remember that any New Moon is about manifestation. So be careful what you think and put out there for the Universe to act on. It can happen quite quickly as long as you do not overthink. This is a time for listening to your gut feeling but you need to discern whether this is coming from old beliefs or truly your uniqueness and knowing. Mercury (thinking) does rule this 2nd decan where the New Moon in Aquarius sits.
The New Moon in Aquarius is saying to you to recognize that new directions are staring at you in love and money. There may be some interesting interactions and surprises with the Sun in Aquarius sextile Uranus in Aries. Also coming from this aspect is something that may bring an exciting new path. Don’t forget that Venus sextiles Mars at this time. Good indication of love flowing. Socializing is great and so is chasing your desires. Balance is there if you allow it. If any dissonance occurs from the square to Uranus then just stay out of the fear place and you can resolve anything.
Signs of Aquarius, Taurus, Leo and Scorpio are most intensely affected especially birthdays February 4-12; May 5-May 13; August 7-15; and November 7-15. Any planets that are aspected are also affected.
Here are some tidbits about the Sun/ rising signs at this New Moon time:
Aries- Lots of networking and promotion light your fire. Watch that those around you aren’t expecting you to foot the bill as you lead the group. Dreams can become reality.
Taurus- New Moon is the emotional trigger to build a new direction in professional or social (possible combo of each) matters. Need to bring work and love into balance. Passions (can be a roller coaster leading up to New Moon) are big on the table.
Gemini- New visions are presented in love and learning, spirituality and travel. Transform work and health routines. Opportunities for change in thinking combining old views with new.
Cancer- Shared benefits and resources come into play. Watch your secret dealings including sexual and financial ones. Narrow your options and square up the budgets.
Leo- Intense interaction with home and family members with good auspices coming out. There is romance highlighted and love in capital letters. Pushy people may show up. Compromise major differences.
Virgo- Make some good nutritional changes in your diet. Change your work habits for better results. Reach out to others if they need help. Transformative energy shows up.
Libra- Triggers possible romantic feelings for someone who is a friend. Those in relationships can reignite the flame of passion. Your creative projects come to the forefront.
Scorpio- Domestic action is stirred up a bit. Is there a new living space coming your way? Home remodeling or renovations in the works? There is a security you are feeling now.
Sagittarius- Good opportunities may show up which are transformative and innovative. Good news regarding travel or creative pursuits. If you feel like lashing out and do, then something may be amiss subconsciously.
Capricorn- This is a good time for finding innovative ways to increase your financial holdings to help make things more secure. Romance shows up. Maybe also some adventure.
Aquarius- You are in the limelight and you enjoy the balance of both past and future. A call from the heart is better than a call when you are working. Your outer world may be taking you away from a commitment.
Pisces- It is time for rest, retreat, hanging out whatever you wish to call it. Take time for yourself and enjoy you. Is there a dream waiting to happen? Fortunate alliances show up.
Let your independent thinking take you to new vistas. The world awaits your innovativeness. Stay tuned for the Full Moon coming up February 22nd. Thank you for reading and sharing if you will. If you have any questions please comment. Many blessings to you as you allow the energy to transform your life. Until again. Love, Jan
