Lunar New Year February 8, 2016 6:39 AM Pacific Standard Time
It is the time of year that the Moon has completed 12 New Moon’s orbiting the Earth and will now begin a new cycle of lunar rotations. We think of the Moon and we think of feelings, family, emotions, and the ties that affect our emotional bodies, the spectrum of emotional experience. During the Lunar New Year, we are encouraged to connect with our hearts, our family, and our emotions. While the Sun rules our sanity, our radiant selves, and our vitality- the Moon rules our happiness. It connects into a deeper part of us that we may reference as the soul, a part that affects our mood and flavors our experience through our hearts engagement. Emotional moments are timeless; igniting a certain quality of feeling in us that floods our hearts and marks our being. We can be forever changed from things in life that touch our hearts. This New Moon in Aquarius will be grappling with our will, trying to determine what we are really passionate about and are willing to go the extra mile for to see the truth, and what we are willing to let go of that may not be aligned with our desire. There is a lot of focus on that which we may want to commit to and be responsible for in our relations, our communication and in our soul’s transformation. There is a push to have some inspiration around that which we can stay true to and really believe in while still being open to the unexpected and the uncharted territory of experience. Being willing to connect with our hearts, and with the spirits that guide us, our beliefs in that which lies beyond us or in us that is not the tangible but can profoundly impact our sense of duty and our sense of purpose. If we can find that which is authentic for us, developing our compassion and empathy, and bring that forth to flourish in our daily acts of grace, we can begin to find the meaning of it all. Finding a goal, a life choice that requires discipline and hard work looks promising if the commitment is followed through daily. What is it that your heart longs for if the sky were the limit? How can you push beyond what you hold true if all things were possible and give of yourself wholeheartedly? How can you let your heart dream and grasp your passion?
During this New Moon in Aquarius, we find the Moon at 19 degrees. Where this falls in your personal birth chart will indicate where New Life and New Beginnings are birthing. Here is where you may choose to open your heart wide to all things possible, plant seedlings for the fruits of your labor, and take a moment to offer the recognition of your true heart’s desire. To reflect on your many loves, loved ones, and the bridges and mountains of love you can build each day fulfilling that which brings you joy and peace. Happy Lunar New Year!!
