It's an interesting New Moon indeed, that culminates at 7:07pm this evening! When the two "lights", Sun and Moon, join at the start of a new lunar cycle each month, they usually make several major aspects to other planets. However, this time they align at 9 degrees of the sign Aquarius, out of orb for aspecting the other planets!
What can that mean for our focus during the current soli/lunar phase that kicks off the next month? It is my opinion that the Aquarian expressions of freedom, individual rights, communication and knowledge will best be served by focusing our efforts through group energy in order to serve the greater good.
The Moon takes the pulse of the public as emotional tides ebb and flow, so when she is joined with the Sun in the only Fixed Air sign of the zodiac, people have an opportunity to operate from an intellectual perspective rather than just reacting from their feelings.
The impersonal nature of unconventional Aquarian tendencies may put some off at first, but it's the friendly, idealistic attitudes of this freedom-loving sign that draws others to ask how they can help further the cause! One individual can enlighten another and together a whole lot of like-minded individuals can reach a larger whole.
Another interesting thing to note in tonight's New Moon chart, is the absence of any planets moving in retrograde motion. If all the planetary energies are in Direct motion, imagine what can be accomplished if we get out of our ruts and adopt a new point of view! The revolution sometimes needs to begin in our minds and hearts before constructive change can be made.
So, while you are deciding how to make the most out of your part in your group, organization or community, you can send out thoughts and prayers for a beleaguered world, that we may remember we are all One. Oh, and please keep your feet on the ground while your head is in the rarified air of Aquarius!!
