This lunation is surrounded by a cluster of planets in Aquarius, the likes of which we haven’t seen since the revolutionary Sixties. Over the past two months, Each planet has passed through the gates of Saturn and Pluto. We’ve undergone significant sandpapering and hard lessons, which have helped us grow and mature. Now, the winds of Aquarius are whipping us, pushing us toward lasting change and breakthrough. All of this Aquarian influence can feel destabilizing.
The sign, after all, is marked by unpredictability and chaos. Knowing this, we can make time to ground into our bodies, taking advantage of Mercury Retrograde to slow down and turn inward, integrating all that we’ve been feeling and experiencing. We may need to revisit problems from the past before leaping ahead. Leo, opposite to Aquarius, holds medicine for us now. We can focus on healing our inner child, working through any difficult emotions or thoughts with creative expression, playfulness, humor, generosity, and joy. Meanwhile, Venus is now conjunct Jupiter, blessing our relationships, sparking justice and balance, and clarifying our value systems. We have the chance to experience positive perspective shifts and expansion of mind. If we’re struggling, we can place our hands on our hearts, remembering what is truly important to us. Who can we call to support us in feeling our shared humanity? How can we work together in inspired collaboration? This New Moon is also conjunct Pallas, the Warrior Goddess asteroid, who helps us strategize, problem solve, and negotiate. High intelligence can guide us forward as we clarify our visions and hash out details for how we will accomplish them together.
The Sabian Symbol for today’s New Moon is particularly apt: “Blown Inward By The Wind, The Curtains Of An Open Window Take The Shape Of A Cornucopia.” The electric winds of change are disruptive and uncertain, but they also hold blessings of richness, if we can find our ground.
