The New Moon in Aquarius is and invitation to philosophize about a better more unified world. This is a call to action for all of us as a collective. Now we must open our eyes and hearts in order to think and act globally. Aquarius is not always the most sensible of energies to deal with. Therefor it is of the utmost importance that we remain grounded and in tune with our own needs and those of others.
Each lunar cycle the Moon travels in an elliptical pathway at times closer and others further from the earth. When Luna is very close in what has come to be called a “Super Moon” our feelings become intensified. Today’s New Moon is in very close proximity to the big blue spaceship we call home.
The sign of Aquarius can easily make our feelings hard to pinpoint and identify. This nebulous quality is disconcerting for Lunar ruled and influenced beings. This is defined by the Moon or the sign of Cancer on an angle in the natal chart. If you have never learned about your personal astrology, now is the time to dive in with a private consultation. Contact me to create yours. If you have been extra moody or feeling frustrated lately, use this month as a working opportunity to sort through these blockages in an active and responsible way.
Added to the cosmic soup this month is the fact that we have four planets meeting up in the sign of Pisces. Together they are concocting a recipe for confusion. Thank goodness Saturn turned retrograde yesterday in intense Scorpio and is acting as a rudder of reason to guide us through this misty pool.
January 20 the Sun enters Aquarius turning our collective consciousness to a new and unexpected direction. This is a great time to reconnect with friends. Why not try stretching beyond your normal comfort zone and trying something completely different?
Mercury takes his first retrograde of the year January 21 which lasts through February 11. This is sure to create more delays than usual. Aquarius rules electronics and communications so please be sure to triple check your work and back things up! I suggest keeping on track with current projects and wait until next month to begin anything new.
Venus floats into the dreamy pond of Pisces January 27. She urges us to go on creative dates and to dive into our craft. We could purchase concert tickets or attend a cultural event. Any and all of these suggestions help to satisfy her longing. In a few days on February 1, Venus connects in an intimate conjunction with nebulous Neptune. This fogs up our vision and makes it challenging to see ahead. In this type of situation it is best to move very slowly and without strong definition. Just be patient.
The Full Moon in Leo February 3 insists we get out and play. Parties with food and opportunities for performing are the best way to quench the lion’s command. Take some of your extra energy and choose to invest it in your spiritual future. Why not plan to join me in Peru this June on the Magical Mystical Journey of a Lifetime?
Feb 11th Mercury turns Direct in the first degree of Aquarius having drifted backward since the New Moon. In the coming weeks we have the opportunity to continue forward in a new light.
Aquarius wants us to realize we are cosmic beings having a human experience. Lighten up on yourself and those around you.
I wish you a month of spontaneous freedom. The energy of Aquarius challenges us to decipher and feel the difference between entrapment in the mind and true bondage. It is easy to get caught up in the non-reality of Maya-illusion. Contact me for your appointment today so I may help you navigate these waters.
I invite you to read on for my predictions for the 12 signs.
Aries March 19/20 to April 20/21. Health can be delicate so be gentle with your demands. When the people around you slow down and appear in reverse, take this as a signal to shut down. Take a few days off. It is better to have a wellness break than be forced into days off due to stress related situations. When your energy pack fills once again, treat a special someone to a night out. It has been a long time since you were the instigator of fun. Is it really worth it being so serious? Tap into your intellect for guidance and use your gift of gab to get you going in an upward motion once again.
Taurus April 20/21 to May 21/22. The state of your health is improving and with it your level of happiness is rising. Be sure to share cheer and good vibrations with everyone who has been standing by you and picking up the slack. Now is a good time to keep your socializing to very small groups rather than large gatherings. This helps to avoid a particularly unruly situation with a challenging personality. If you have been scheming a career move, hold off until the latter part of February. Right now is too bumpy to get your ideas across and solidify an agreement.
Gemini May 21/22 to June 21/22. That electrical piece of equipment that has been giving you early warnings signs of failure is sure to quit. This is echoed in your central nervous system. Heed all early warning signs and by all means take yourself to a massage or Reiki session. Then, take that tired electronic device to the repair shop. This is no time to practice denial. Catching the early stages is key in create health and happiness. Get real and use your wit and wisdom to rise above any perceived challenges. You have strokes of genius this month so be sore to capture them when they flash through your mind.
Cancer June 22/23 to July 22/23. You feel as if you are due for rest and renewal but there is no time right now. The busy spell has you feeling exposed at times. Realize this is helping to get you into financially fit shape. Stay as frugal as possible and you can easily get out of the red and into the black. When you least expect it a new patron or donor shows up. You are not in synch with what is required but you have the ability to read the situation and act. For goodness sake be sure you are resting well and up for the needed surge of energy to follow this through.
Leo July 22/23 to August 23/24. You are in no mood for conforming or letting things just slide. Though you are most likely in the right it is still a good idea to back off a bit as others cannot keep up with you. You must learn to trust your feelings and not take the criticism of others so profoundly. Sparks and fireworks may have sputtered and cooled down in your primary relationships. Rather than feelings blocked or stagnated by recent relationship shifts, see this as an opportunity to set stronger and more long lasting foundational stones. Instead of blaming things on others ask yourself what you can do to keep things going.
Virgo August 23/24 to September 23/24. Let go of your naughty little habits and make the changes that you have known you need to give into. This way you end the annoyances that have become menacing. You are able to easily see the mistakes of others so rather than gloating over the corrections you easily made, just quietly work behind the scene. This is a much better way to serve those around you. Take time to really look at where you want to be and then take a small step toward this.
Libra September 23/24 to October 23/24. The desire to reconnect with an old friend is hovering overhead so go ahead and reach out. Venus, your ruling planet is gracing your solar fifth house of lovers and creative projects. Use her power in a positive way. Single scales whether looking or not are about to be side-swiped by love. Those of you in relationships utilize this magnetic force to skillfully and creatively spice up your love life. You are a hot fire of burning love. Now go out and light up someone’s life!
Scorpio October 23/24 to November 22/23. Take the leap of faith and plunge headlong into all new projects. Your level of trust has steadily increased. This has in turn equally strengthened your ability to surrender. Continue to utilize bumps and challenges as opportunities to witness and allow. Know that you are not the making things happen. This accelerates you on past being the authority figure. Now it is time to relax and enjoy the solid ground you have created. If the love bug has not bitten you yet it is about to! Weed through the options before diving in for a full commitment. If you already have done so, then be prepared for intensification.
Sagittarius November 22/23 to December 21/22. It is indeed time to open your mouth and roar. You have every right to let others know what you think and feel regarding their recent actions and inactions. Use this as a much needed lesson for days to come when you must speak up. This is a lesson in doing so sooner. You have great allies to help in times of need. Listen to their opinions and take extra time to soak it all in before making a move. If needed, engage a seasoned advisor to stand for you and put some heat on the frozen negligence. Take your feisty energy to the bedroom and into your creative outlets.
Capricorn December 21/22 to January 20/21. The change you have been scheming is ready to be placed into action. Be sure before doing so that you comb over every little detail to assure perfection in your presentation and choices. When elevated and provoked be sure to take a good long time out. You must develop new methods to release these feelings in such a way that you do not effect and infect others with frustration that is not theirs. Some of these feelings are coming from outside forces. There is nothing you can do but accept and adapt. Once you are cooled down, get back to work and steadily moving forward.
Aquarius January 20/21 to February 18/19. You have many visitors in your house both physically and cosmically. Some are quite fond of practical jokes so lighten up and roll with it. It is likely you are in the mood for a makeover so think things out before changing drastically. Though times may feel a little thin now, the investment of energy in future projects is valid. Make every effort to gather a new group of like-hearted individuals together for the adventures ahead. It is not necessary to understand how your new level expression is materializing. Just know that it is very close to presenting itself and be ready with an open heart.
Pisces February 18/19 to March 19/20. Creativity is the song you are dancing to with lovers and friends. If you have been holed up alone it is time to get out and meet new people. You are magnetically attracting so many opportunities for which you may want to engage the advice of a trusted friend to help you sift and sort through. This way you can relax and enjoy all the sensations while being guided to make the best choices. Take care to keep clear boundaries so as to avoid unhealthy habits. Keeping your schedule and diet steady are important components for health and well-being. In addition money comes rolling in. Be sure to stash some away for the future.
