Capricorn season has broken forth into the high, crisp upper stratosphere of Aquarian vision with the Sun, Moon and Mercury all now in the sign of the water-bearer. We have been collectively sifting through ancestral karma for the past year, and the image for this New Moons speaks to where the strengths and lessons of our past, both personally and genetically lend their support to the new visions being birthed now.
With the New Moon in Aquarius we have an opportunity to plant the seeds of all we wish to break free from and all we wish to honor from our past. All we seek to be liberated from and that which we hold in reverence for getting us here are united. All of the higher visions that we keep deep and quiet within us have their place and now, some vision wishes to be written, heard or spoken. The conversation is important, both within and without.
Mercury is with this New Moon beckoning the innocent, curious and brilliant child within us to be heard. Being a New Moon, this is the time for seeding, gently and deeply into the fertile void our intentions around speaking the truth of our own vision and speaking up for those who seek to do the same and are being oppressed or cast out for being different or without privilege.
In aspect to Chiron in Aries this is a time for claiming our right to be healers and mentors in the world. It is about letting our freak flags fly and daring to be boldly you, regardless of others’ opinions. It is learning more deeply the value and worth we each hold to transform this world and that it begins with our own healing first. Sometimes the most healing thing is to just accept and love ourselves, and give ourselves permission to exist as we are. This example can heal and inspire others alone.
With Saturn and Pluto nearby, the planets are still reflecting a story about integrity and transformation. As we seek to live more deeply in our truth, it may not be so much about rocking the boat for fun, although it could be, but more about the deeply resounding truths that we must allow to merge forth from our subconscious.
This Aquarian Moon asks us to dare to hold space for our highest visions, hopes and dreams and also to honor the traditions that brought us here, the work it took us and countless humans before us to build. May we be unwavering in our sense of right and wrong, and yet honor the truth that there are as many truths as there are people.
With Uranus in square to this lunation, new technologies and breakthroughs are being called for as Earth changes are sure to continue to drive us as a species to become more adaptable. Being a fixed air sign, Aquarius hold the changeability and quickness of air with the steadfastness of mind. From such a vantage point we can expand our scope of vision in 2020, we can dare to glimpse the impossible, and even though practicality and wisdom are crucial, we must sometimes stretch ourselves past our point of comfort, past the line that society tells us to stay behind if we want to evolve.
Kick the line of chalk into dust and watch as what seemed like a defining barrier becomes like stardust refracting rainbow light potential in the Sun. This starlight is you and all things simultaneously. Dare to imagine and to believe in the visions you receive now- those that light your fire of inspiration so bright it could be seen for galaxies. This is the brilliance of Aquarius, the higher starlight body that connects us like a never-ending grid of spirals- the mind of the universe, the multiverse and all of the dimensions.
Venus is moving in to square Mars in Sagittarius. Mars in Sagittarius wants to adventure, experience, learn and grow according to our personal truth. Venus in Pisces seeks sweetness and healing through connection. The drive for meaning and purpose and the deep nurturing of a sweet embrace can meet now with some effort. If we look more closely, are they both not seeking to touch the Divine in their own way? Our sense of independence and of connectedness are seeking reconciliation. We can touch the Divine both through expanding into new personal experiences and surrendering deep within ourselves. We can be both nurturer and provider, grow together and independently of one another while co-weaving the great tapestry of life.
Venus in Pisces opens the heart into deep spaces of vulnerability, compassion, tenderness and understanding. She is approaching Neptune at this New Moon- receiving mystical transmissions. There is healing, bliss and creative inspiration in Piscean waters. There is escapism and distraction too. Channel this into your art, poetry, lovemaking and relationships. Creativity is enhanced as well as intimacy. Boundaries and balance should be minded, as vulnerability is a channel into the soul that must be held with integrity and intention to carry it through. Choose consciously what you surrender to and what you let go of at this time.
This is not a time to lose hope, check out or give in to pessimism or discouragement of others. Likewise, support others when and where you can in their own visionary genius. Be open to witness and experience things that may have previously been shocking to you. For it is the way of Uranus, ruler of Aquarius to trigger new awakenings through bringing to sight things previously too shocking to look at. Imagine the power we hold when we can stand resolute in our truth and simultaneously remain open to its transformation.
Blessings and Stardust,
