Imagine the four planets, Sun and Moon in Aquarius are pouring the iridescent, pearlescent, luminescent light of inspiration upon us. The image for Aquarius is the water bearer, but just what exactly is in the vessel this star being holds? Is it the nectar of immortality from Saturn? The light of inspiration from Venus? The vaccines to save lives from Mercury? The awakening to our already innate immortality from the Sun? The genius spark within each of us from Jupiter? Whatever gifts or blessings are showering upon you now, may we all open to receive them and be prepared to set powerful intentions to honor them this New Moon.
Inherent in all of these images is the connection of our human selves to something humanity has deemed to come from above- be it in the form of lighting, starlight or a burning bush high on the mountaintop; this powerful Aquarian Age, ushered by the Saturn-Jupiter alignment on winter solstice is a ripe and fertile plot for the planting in the dar of this New Moon. May we open ourselves as clear, heart centered channels for the truth and inspiration to flow for the highest good for all beings.
Uranus, modern ruler of Aquarius is in the Earthly sign of Taurus which reminds us to honor the sacred senses of the body, pleasure, beauty, the Earth, Cosmos and our humanity. To activate the gifts of this Aquarian stellium we must move our bodies.
Aquarius as an archetype is sometimes called the ascended human or cosmic human in its light, in its shadow it can be the cyborg or dictator who has disconnected from their humanity. With Uranus, the ruler of Aquarius in the sign of Taurus for the next several years, we are being asked to anchor our ascension as “inscension”/awakening to include honor for our human form and the Earth it is actually a part of. We are being reminded that as we advance as a species not to leave the body and the Earth behind. May we remember what it is to be human in these times. May we remember the importance of connecting with the people we love- in these times that can change in every moment. Forgive your family and loved ones where you need to, the gift of our togetherness is the greatest gift we have in this life.
Mercury’s retrograde in Aquarius currently is asking that we review everything we think we know about ourselves as modern humans and the modern life we have become complacent within. Aquarius is the sacred rebel, here to challenge, tear down and upset the status quo in service to the highest evolution of the species as a part of the Earth and Cosmos. Bless the inclinations of your sacred rebellious heart at this time as it serves the highest good.
This is without a doubt, the moment of the great transformation of society. Or at least it must be, if we wish to awaken to our highest potential as both Cosmic and Earthly beings. This lunation offers a profound opportunity for the great activation of new communities, groups, allegiances and ideas that promote humanitarianism as well as honoring the Anima Mundi- the world soul. To take this to the next level we must address the shadow of Aquarius as elitism and exclusivity within groups. May we also address where we can have an identity and a community that does not place itself above others, but ensures its vision and mission is inclusive of any who want to be a part of it and are aligned with the vision and purpose.
These groups and their structure may require us to draw upon the examples of our ancestors who were closer to remembering their humanity than the majority of the westernized world in the past 300 years. Who did not see themselves as separate from one another, or the world. Who remembered our interconnectedness not only with one another, but with all living and non-living parts of this great giant organism we are a part of, called Earth, and the heavens above, called Cosmos.
Perhaps it was the steady separation of humans through modern thought that has inevitably lead us to this forced separation that we may remember our way back to our true selves.
The modern mind, as it has progressed since the Copernican revolution and the last Enlightenment is now facing its shadow. It is time to evolve with the Earth, or the Earth will evolve us out. Like an organ found only in ancient, prototypical stages of development in a species that eventually outlived its purpose. Or rather, that became utterly confused on what exactly that was and tried to destroy the rest of the organism.
Jupiter is with Venus for this New Moon- it is a highly positive, loving and spiritual aspect, but they are in square to Black Moon Lilith in Taurus. The hopes, visions and new dreams we are seeding now cannot be experienced without honoring the reality of how our disconnection from our bodies, one another and the earth are fueling them. The rage, pain and mistreatment of the Earth, the species of this planet and the human body must be acknowledged in order to find new solutions. In order to truly find gratitude for what it is we have with one another and in this life that is so very precious.
The more we become clear about how true wisdom is knowing what you don’t know, the easier it will be to step through the illusions of the past, gather the pearls of wisdom they produced and move into a New Age with values and philosophies intact, albeit malleable, that will pave the way for a world that we truly want to live in. Let love guide you, let yourself dare to think differently than the status quo. Your specific creative intelligence is being activated now, and it is a crucial part in this chapter of humanity.
Use this New Moon is aligned very closely with the asteroid Pallas Athena- Goddess of wisdom and creative intelligence. It is a huge opportunity to open to receive as well as set intentions around your highest and brightest hopes, dreams, visions, inspiration. If something has been calling to you for some time and you just can’t seem to shake it- listen. This is the moment that genius is born out of. If you haven’t been clear enough to hear, this is an opportunity to open to receive the vision.
The following practice has transformed my life and is an offering as a ritual you can use on this New Moon and into the future: Spend 30 minutes visualizing the version of yourself that you are committed to becoming. Sit and visualize until you can see yourself clearly, how you look, feel, dress, your habits, diet, routine, schedule, partner, who you surround yourself with, where you live, how you spend your time etc.
Now bring that person into yourself and merge with them. Feel all the feelings you feel as your highest self- your joy, gratitude, peace, contentment, excitement or whatever emotions you feel.
To really anchor in your Aquarian Vision Manifestation, write out your vision and read it out loud every morning followed by the 30-minute visualization daily. You will be amazed at the changes that emerge.
By the dark of this New Moon, may we find the endurance to soften. The courage to develop our gifts and visions. The clarity to open to receive the channellings form the heavens and the grace to give the deepest thanks for the connection, togetherness and loved ones we have in our lives <3 This can change all too quickly in this time.
Blessings and Cosmic-Earthly Visions,
