Aquarius – the Exile, the Genius, the Scientist, the Truth Sayer, the Revolutionary, the Flake, the Iceberg. Natural ruler of the eleventh house where we find our friends, hopes, wishes, social groups and true unconditional love. A Fixed Air sign ruled by Uranus and symbolized by the Water Bearer a metaphysician pouring water from their vessel to heal the land and inspire Spiritual growth. Represents being unique, eccentric, unconventional, progressive, disruptive and inventive – “I know”.
Crystals such as amethyst, garnet, turquoise, jade and aquamarine are best to have for the Aquarian lunation. In the human body, Aquarius represents the ankles, circulation, and calves. Good circulation is about being in flow with the universal vibrations of energy waves. Herbs that help circulation and reduce cholesterol are cayenne, garlic, ginseng, borage and oats.
This New Moon will bring creative freedom, more awareness to humanitarian projects, and we may feel the urge to reinvent how we do things and how we perceive things. A very fast paced time with feelings of renewed passion. The Moon within a few degrees of Pluto offers intensity towards long term plans for both completion of matters as well as strong starts for new beginnings.
The environment on the planet Uranus runs hot and cold and Aquarius can turn on and off quickly. One minute you may feel like being in a group and socializing and the next minute have a desire to be alone. We are here to learn compassion and tolerance without loosing our self-identity. Striking a balance to tame extremes is the task at hand. Using intuition to determine what times to participate and when to recluse. Honor and integrity insure a true path to balance and well-being.
Mercury, Mars, and Uranus all station direct within the week and will accelerate movement forward. It may feel a bit like shrugging off a heavy wool blanket and feeling free to explore new possibilities. Opportunity abounds with Jupiter in Aries making a sextile to the New Moon. Find the inner pioneer – travel, further your education, get moving. Consider a new way, an inventive, unconventional way to do mundane chores and routines. Give yourself permission to play, reconnect with the light-hearted child within and rearrange time. It’s never too late to have a happy second childhood.
Moon moving into a conjunction with Saturn and Venus – what lessons have you learned about responsibility, love, structure and finances? Emotions are running high and it is important to navigate with a level head and a clear heart. Much like traversing white water rapids down a river weaving around the rocks and steering towards calm waters. Namaste.
