NEW MOON IN AQUARIUS
Chinese New Year
Year of the Fire Monkey
February 8 @ 9:39am EST
Let the purifying waters of objectivity wash over you.
Stepping outside of our instinctual urges and embracing a path that serves our highest principles.
The New Moon is a time for planting new seeds.
Where can you implement new ways of being into your daily actions that are more in agreement with the visions you hold for yourself but also for humankind and the planet?
Do you feel ready to step outside of yourself and participate more actively in the collective? What contributions are you willing to make to help humanity get out of its archaic ways?
Since this New Moon is square to Mars in Scorpio, we must watch for self-righteousness and holding on too firmly to our point of views. It highlights the contrast between our lower instinctual nature and the voice of reason.
We must be willing to step outside of our navel gazing activities and into a meaningful participation with the collectivity. Is it possible to be passionate about a cause that is dear to our heart while simultaneously making space for others to participate and contribute with their own visions?
A lot of things are wrong with the world and we are all contributing to it.
What steps are you willing to make to implement small but important changes?
We will be entering some dark territories over the weekend. Our relationships will be the prime battle ground for the darkness that is trying to emerge and come into the light. Remember that precious gems are not found above ground. Keep that in mind and take a step back from whatever is happening. There is a New Moon on Monday and a definite shift for the better.
Live for the next 2 days: Mars in Scorpio sextile Pluto in Capricorn.
Welcome to the big league if you can handle it.
Warrior planet Mars is super strong in Scorpio and his power is doubled when backed up by Pluto.
Regeneration means that you are able to renew where loss has occurred AND you become stronger in the process.
Use the next few days to reaffirm your goals. There is much determination AND POWER available to us at this time.
The image is from a novel called: The Revenant which recount the true story of adventurer and frontiersman Hugh Glass.
”With shocking grit and determination, Glass sets out, crawling at first, across hundreds of miles of uncharted American frontier after being left for dead by companions, following his mauling by a grizzly bear.”
The Moon is in Taurus today, the sign of her exaltation and she is ruled by Venus in Sagittarius which is in turn applying to square Jupiter in Virgo.
In the last few weeks, the soil has been tilted not without difficulties revealing some buried treasures but also many rocks. We are now walking on an exposed landscape and we can see clearly where the foundation needs to be set.
The Moon in Taurus for the next few days can help us survey our assets. What are the resources available to you at the moment that will help you carry out some of the big ideas you have? We are still very much in the planning phase and it is not time to sit on our laurels.
The Moon in the Earth sign of Taurus helps us filter our experience through the five senses:
Am I comfortable? What do I need to feel relaxed and at peace? There can be a desire for ease and an ability to find a deep satisfaction with simple pleasures. The downside of this indulgent Moon is that we can become complacent not pushing further and becoming somewhat self-satisfied.
The hard aspect between Venus in Sagittarius (the ruler of the Moon in Taurus) and Jupiter in Virgo denotes a carelessness or perhaps missing out on some important details. Since Jupiter is retrograde in the sign of its detriment we might be overwhelmed with everything that needs to be accomplished and get lost in the various details of our daily existence. It could also be that we do not attend to the nitty-gritty stuff and we skip out on some important steps.
While the Moon is in Taurus for the next few days we might notice a need to find the balance between work and rest. If we become mentally overworked, we can become careless. If we only indulge in our passions we can become lazy. There might also be a tendency to become stuck in our views making it harder to keep an open mind. The back and forth is between broad visions and microscopic perspectives.
Know when it is time roll up your sleeve and know when it is time to stop. Do not bring your work in the bedroom and don’t let your lower instincts override your judgment. But most important of all with the Moon in Taurus: cook a delicious meal and enjoy!
Today, Mars in Scorpio is applying to a trine with Neptune in Pisces and this will be felt into next week. Mars in Scorpio tends to unearth what is hidden. Secrets are exposed, a light is cast on shadows and we have access to our buried desires and unconscious motivations.
Mars in Scorpio trine Neptune in Pisces is a doorway, a threshold into other means of understanding. Intuition runs high and we have access to the shadows that dances behind the veil of our everyday awareness. Pattern emerges and synchronicities unfold.
