As unusual as Aquarius can be, this month the sign Aquarius claims two New Moons in a row! The first was in the early degrees calling forth young, uncharted energy whereas the New Moon tomorrow is in the final moments of Aquarius at 29 degrees 59 seconds! This pivotal point calls forth energy of remembrance to carry forward what we have learned and mastered while leaving behind what is no longer useful. As Aquarius can bring about flashes of insight, take a moment to breathe and pay attention to any brilliant or wild ideas that may arise around or leading up to this New Moon. For your personal influence from the New Moon, look to the house 29 degree Aquarius falls in to see where in your life you may experience your intuitive flash of inspiration. Aquarius encourages us to be” freaky” which is essentially to be the unique individual that you are. We all come from the same ingredients; however, we still carry markers of our own individualism such as our fingerprints, our voice, and our scent. Lately the energy of the Universe, with 4 Planets in Pisces, has been activating dreaming and sleeping, motivating us to look beyond physical reality to the sky above and to the synchronicity of things. Getting lost in time and the drifting about has been encouraged. Letting go as life may have reminded us that gripping tightly and trying to control the unfolding just does not work. When we are centered in a space of allowing like a shell in the oceans tides, we don’t drown, but we float effortlessly, trusting and flowing with, rather than against the current.
After the Moon’s kiss with the Aquarius Sun, the Sun moves 48 seconds later into Pisces. Three minutes after that, the Moon joins the Sun in Pisces with Mars, Venus, and Neptune. As Venus and Mars approach the 29th degree of Pisces, what is driving our vision, our relationship with the mystical world, and what is ending? On Feb 20th, Mars, Venus and the Moon will move into bold, courageous, and adventurous Aries shifting out of the somewhat complacent and floating energy of Pisces. We can be fueled by the fire’s glow to ignite ourselves forward, gathering up the will and drive to “get a move on” once again and relate passionately with others and encouraging our warrior within. The Sun will spend time shining in the Pisces constellation for a month, keeping the vision alive, the compassion and sensitivity to dream and while reigning in the tendency to float away. Saturn in Sagittarius and the Arian energy of Venus and Mars will add fire to get that Piscean water bubbling and boiling, keeping it engaged rather than stagnant, and still but percolating into effervescence! Dream big and with courage as we embark on the Year of the Goat!
