New Moon in Aquarius
Around 1 PM PT on Feb 4th we have a New Moon in Aquarius at the midpoint, 15 degrees. Closely aligned to the conjunction between the Sun and the Moon is Mercury sitting at 19 degrees. This means new thoughts, new ideas, new ways of communicating. Since Uranus is seen as the ruler of Aquarius, then this can mean technological advances will come to the forefront during the 6 months between now and the full moon in Aquarius. But over the next few weeks, you will feel the impetus to put these new actions into place.
Aquarius sits across the sky from Leo. This is the We compared to Me energy. For the previous 18 months you worked on this energy when the North and South Node were in Leo and Aquarius respectively. Now you get to apply what you learned. Our goal with this new moon is to understand how to better connect to the Collective. So your mission should you choose to accept it, is to go within and determine what keeps you from joining in. If you are already good with this connection then how can you bring it to the next level? How can you reach more people, help expand your cause, bring solutions to those in need? How can you bring out your Sir Isaac Newton, your Mad Scientist, or perhaps your Albert Einstein.
Jupiter in Sagittarius is teaching us how to expand our horizons and start to see the bigger picture. How do we fit in? What is the impact if we don't? How is our thinking and energy all co-mingled? Why does it matter what I think if I don't say it out loud?? All these things and more that have us connected and calling our attention to them is what Jupiter is all about as it sextiles over to the Sun, Moon and Mercury. Jupiter wants us to expand then our ego, our emotions, and our thinking. That's a lot of things to be focused on at one time, but Jupiter is big for a reason, and you have all the support you need to do the work.
This new moon is sitting right in the middle of the sextile between Neptune and Saturn. Again this is very supportive energy. The discipline, the structure you need comes from Saturn, and the inspiration from Neptune. This is a great month for getting your dreams off the ground. Do not let this pass you by. Truly one of the last times this year to launch something successfully that doesn't require a lot of heavy lifting. But give it a few days until you see the light of the moon again.
Use your 10 new moon wishes to strengthen your resolve for anything Aquarius related as mentioned above. Write them down, say them out loud, and then do whatever speaks to you. But this is an Air sign, so work that into your ritual.
