Aquarius New Moon
New Moon at Aquarius 4°21’, January 24, 2020 at 4:42 pm EST.
The exacting pressure of Capricorn is giving away to the revolutionary perspective of Aquarius. If Capricorn is the voice of experience, Aquarius is the field of possibilities. Most of us prefer to spin visions of the future over feeling bogged down in a present that does not want to change.
The energy of this Dark Moon Window is tightly held between Mars and Uranus, both in challenging relationships to other archetypes. Uranus/Wadjet – the Great Awakener – is squaring the New Moon, indicating an ongoing sense of unpredictability. At its best, this aspect describes breaking out of outworn forms that no longer serve. And, this energy is anxiety producing as we continue to feel like we’re on the precipice … and when the heck is that other shoe going to drop?
Mars is aligned with Set, the Warrior King. Loyal, protective, dangerous and cruel - all in one big powerful and overwhelming package. Mars/Set is in a challenging relationship to gentle and imaginative Venus and Neptune in Pisces. It’s hard to get our needs in alignment with our actions. We want to experience compassion and love, and The Warrior is pretty pissed off and not bringing us what we long to receive.
This Dark Moon window is a good time to go within and connect with your Inner Visionary. Set an intention to stay connected in the days ahead. There will be anger projected into the world and that feeling of something lying in wait will continue. We cannot change the circumstances of this world but we can change how we respond to them. Go within, breathe and connect with your deep desire for positive change. In that connection, you will find your allies.
