The New Moon in Aquarius is on February 10th at 2:20 am (Eastern US time). So begins the Year of the (Water) Snake!
Water, Water Everywhere!
A lunation in the sign of the (cosmic) Waterbearer, comes with a stellium in oceanic Pisces. There’s harmonious flow to the healing force of Saturn in Scorpio (more water). AND it’s the first day of the Year of the Water Snake. The emotional-psychic waves churn deep, and bring much that’s drifted to the bottom (denied, repressed) to the surface. Keep the purging effect in mind, if you’re experiencing unusual highs and lows.
On an individual level, and then in the various circles ever wider outward, there’s a reckoning, and a chance for authentic healing. But there can be some raw crazy churned up — avoid crowded places if possible. Much will depend on the atmosphere you choose for yourself. Give yourself the gift of calm, to stay present through the inner tsunami. The right friends, music, environmental input makes all the difference.
Dream or Nightmare
The air element is in square to the water element — for rare objectivity, and ability to shapeshift the traumas of the past, into something new. It’s a time of experimentation, moving into new fascinations and inspirations. The penetrating insight into currents of the psyche can be translated and broadcast in some way.
The Messenger and Waterbearer (Gemini-Aquarius) are symbolic allies, to tune in to a new narrative for what’s happening. The deep insights inform your genius, and might even give you a warped sense of humor — to laugh at the absurdity of it all!
Jupiter now in full-steam ahead direct mode (in Gemini) is square to the Pisces planets (Mercury, Mars, Neptune). And Venus in Aqua is squaring Saturn (nearly exactly). If we are able to ride the waves, some of them shockwaves, the rewards are huge! A new sense of freedom is possible, from this catharsis. The path to growth is through being adaptable and releasing energy knots.
The intensity of the New Moon will likely last through early next week, that begins February 11th. New Moons always come with the advice to surrender, to the process, and this is especially important here. Ask for highest healing, and listen to your own guidance moment-to-moment.
This New Moon is considered auspicious as a doorway to finer cosmic vibes. It’s Lunar Imbolc, or Candlemas. It’s time for idealism, and welcoming fine fresh vibes and possibilities. All is new, as the Sun grows stronger everyday. At Imbolc, we light candles and ask for faith. The New Moon is a time of beginnings. You can set intentions or do a New Moon Ritual that grows with the lunar light and reaches fruition at the Full Moon.
Aquarius is about shared energies, in groups, making this key for coming together in ritual. You’ll want to be sure you’re on the same wavelength, since group harmonics play an important role now. If you’re not in synch with your current circle of friends and colleagues, go out and seek those that are an inspired match. This New Moon is about allies for the future, who are tuned in to the highest vision for the whole.
