Hello lovely ones and happy almost February!
Here we are almost one month into 2019, out of eclipse season (but perhaps still feeling the after effects) and in Aquarius season (the season of change!) with a New Moon around the corner.
Next Monday February 4 sees the second New Moon of 2019 which takes place at 1.04pm PT (adjust for your timezone) and falls at 15 degrees of the air sign of Aquarius.
In the natural zodiac, Aquarius rules the eleventh house.
This house is the house of friendship - groups we belong to (sometimes official organizations) - our tribe as well as our hopes, wishes and dreams for the future.
Our tribe here is about those we relate to on a deep soul level -people who may look and be different from us on an external level, but with whom we are intrinsically connected to on a cosmic DNA level.
These are people we share values with and align with on a moral level.
Often we come together with these people, not just to enjoy the pleasures of friendship but to also make a difference for the collective.
Us being friends with these people means we not only progress on our own path but also means we help progress the path of humanity in some way.
Which in turn leads to us fulfilling our hopes, wishes and dreams for the future - in short, our destiny!
Regardless of your zodiac sign, these themes apply to each of us at this New Moon.
As always, to know exactly where this New Moon falls in your chart please see the Soulstrology zodiac guide below and don’t forget to read for both your Sun and Rising sign as well as to check for any planets you might have in Aquarius as they may be getting activated by this New Moon.
Now, as Soulstrology souls you will hopefully be quite aware that the recent set of eclipses since February 2017 were activating the Leo/Aquarius axis in our charts and therefore lives.
We should therefore have experienced a significant amount of change in the Aquarius ruled parts of our charts over the last two years.
Now, we have the opportunity to embrace an entirely new chapter in these areas of life.
And the cosmos is conspiring to assist us with a truly beautiful New Moon!
This New Moon makes a stunning sextile aspect to Jupiter who as you know is in optimistic Sagittarius.
This harmonious aspect between the Sun and Moon in Aquarius (who as you know by now, join together at every New Moon) - a sign that at its core represents humanity and indeed the evolution of humanity - to justice seeking, generous, optimistic Sagittarius is the essence of the Soulstrology theme for this Aquarius New Moon: believing in something bigger and better, for each of us as individuals, as well as for humanity as a whole.
Mercury is also in Aquarius and is in conjunction to this New Moon (meaning he is close enough by to the New Moon that his energies are blending with the New Moon) so he too makes a lovely harmonious aspect to Jupiter helping us to think and believe in a better future for ourselves and humanity.
After all Jupiter is the great glass half full optimist and he/she who believes, is he/she who shall receive!
Believing is half the process in manifesting anything in our lives as well as for the world at large.
Jupiter is also a great healer so his connection to Mercury at this time can help us to heal our thoughts and communications regarding the Aquarius ruled areas of life (both in the natural zodiac and in our unique charts) and hint: if you’ve been feeling sad about the state of the union (literally!) or the world, then I have empathy as I have too, but here is the time where we can trust and believe and be optimistic (all Jupiter in Sagittarius themes) in a different future for our beloved world, AND that we can play a role in that positive future (and fulfill both our own dreams and destiny in doing so!).
At the time of this New Moon practical Saturn in Capricorn makes a lovely sextile aspect to dreamy Neptune in Pisces, bringing both spiritual and creative insights to our plans at this time as well as the practical foresight to make those dreams a reality.
Venus (newly in Capricorn as she moves there this Sunday February 3rd and stay tuned for the blog coming on that by wonderful Soulstrology contributor Lexie Rollet!) makes a stunning aspect to Uranus (the ruler of Aquarius and this New Moon and stay tuned for your brand new Uranus/Earth Soulstrology Soundbath dropping this weekend!).
Uranus turned direct earlier in January and is slowly moving his way out of Aries and back into Taurus where he will spend the next seven years.
This aspect between Venus and Uranus allows us to combine practical creativity and abundance (Venus being in earthy Capricorn) with innovation, individuality and leadership (Uranus being in the first sign of the zodiac Aries).
The two aspects to watch out for at this New Moon, as it could have us falling into the slippery shadow of the cosmos - are Pluto in Capricorn squaring Mars in Taurus which could make us a bit too headstrong, stubborn and pushing our goals too forcefully (think of the person who campaigns for the greater good but ends up causing chaos in the process due to fights, forcefulness, being too headstrong and controlling - aka - I am right and you are wrong. No bueno, right?!)
Also to watch out for is Jupiter in Sagittarius squaring Neptune in Pisces…this can have us being overly optimistic and idealistic in a way that has us being unrealistic and even a bit delusional. Think over stretching oneself, being duped, duping ourselves.
The thing to do here is to perhaps run your plans/ideas by a pragmatic friend (think an Earth sign) or just to check yourself and make sure you are harnessing the positive and powerful energies of this New Moon but in a way that has some structure and pragmatism.
So much to think about in the lead up to this New Moon and so many powerful cosmic energies to harness to not only believe in something bigger and better, but also to EXPERIENCE something bigger and better, in our individual lives and as a collective.
More to come on this via your cosmic coaching, a unique ritual for this particular New Moon, your Soulstrology Scopes AND your new Soulstrology Soundbath.
But for now, check out the Soulstrology zodiac guide for this Aquarius New Moon below and see the life areas which are coming into the cosmic spotlight…
More soon :)
