New Moon in Aquarius: Embodying the Authentic Self
Monday, February 4th, 2019 (at 4.04 pm est - 15 deg 45’)
This New Moon in Aquarius gives us a burst of energy to implement a new way of being in the world.
What new insights did January bring for you?
The back-to-back eclipses last month have shaken things up, bringing surprising insights and unexpected changes. How has your world view been altered? Have you implemented changes in your life that reflect your newfound identity?
The eclipses of the last two years or so have been on Aquarius / Leo axis … so the areas in your chart that are affected by those two signs have undergone major shifts during this time.
The Blood Wolf Super Moon Lunar Eclipse of January 21st gave us a dramatic end to that cycle with the Lunar Eclipse in Leo!
Now, we can take a deep breath and focus on embodying the changes we know we must make to live our authenticity. What rigid structures or beliefs are you ready to challenge?
The Sun / Moon conjunction at 15 deg 45’ Aquarius is conjoined with Mercury, the planet that represents communication and the mental realm, as well as Black Moon Lilith, who invites us to embrace our shadow, and make peace with our authenticity and “dark side.”
What part of your psyche have you suppressed in order to “make nice”?
Both Mars and Jupiter are in supportive aspects to this New Moon.
Mars is currently in Aries, one of the signs He rules, so He is fully charged and ready to add courage and energy to the work you do now. Mars is in a sextile aspect to the new moon, a helpful aspect that can boost your courage and confidence to leap any hurdles that are in your way.
Jupiter is also in a favorable sign all year; in Sagittarius, one of the signs under His rule, He adds expansion, growth and good fortune to any ventures dedicated to His realm, and is also in a helpful sextile aspect to this New Moon.
With this New Moon sandwiched between Mars and Jupiter in signs they rule, you can plant seeds of intention this waxing cycle to EMBODY YOUR BAD SELF. Who would you be if you only dared? JUST ASK LILITH.
NOTE: As always, these forecasts are generalized for each of the twelve rising signs; for every individual the forecasts may be more or less favorable depending on one’s specific natal chart.
IF YOU KNOW YOUR RISING SIGN, READ THE FORECAST FOR THAT SIGN, IN ADDITION TO THAT OF YOUR SUN SIGN.
