Aquarius new Moon…again…

Chinese New Year greeting

Hi there,

Just thought I’d check in on you all…

I haven’t been around here much lately- combo of deadlines in the partition job, deadlines on the novel front and deadlines on another commissioned job. I’m about halfway through the astro writing and hand in the novel to the copy editor at the end of the month, so the light is gleaming away at the end of this particular tunnel.

There’s some big stuff happening in the sky over the next couple of days.

First up is the New Moon tomorrow. Technically it falls at 29 Aquarius 29′. Less than one minute later, the Moon moves into Pisces. Just a couple of minutes after this, so does the Sun. It’s so close it’s almost unbearable. At the time the Sun moves in, the Moon is at 0 Pisces 01′. There’s a lot about this that I love- that whole blurring of boundaries thing.

I won’t put up a DIY post on this one- but here’s the link to the last Aquarius New Moon post.

Then, on the 21st, Venus moves into Aries, followed quickly by Mars.

It’s all happening.

This New Moon also marks the New Chinese Year. This one is in the sign of the sheep…or the goat…or the ram- which, of course, is the same as a sheep, just more gender specific.

From the useless book of knowledge, I was born in the Year of the Goat- so was anyone born after Chinese New Year in the following years: 1907, 1919, 1931, 1943, 1955, 1967, 1979, 1991, 2003.

I don’t know too much about Chinese astrology, but it fascinates me. I love the ceremony and the traditions that go along with it.

Like rolling oranges and coins over the threshold of the front door on the first day of the New Year- to bring in prosperity.

Like the panicked call from my friend in Malaysia on Feb 4 to go and deposit money for Li Chun Day. Apparently that’s the day where depositing cash rather than withdrawing it is lucky for abundance in the year ahead. I just wish he’d told me a day earlier!

Something else for the useless book of knowledge.

Anyways, it’s 6.30am here in Sydney and I have to get up and do the hi ho hi ho thing.

Until next time…
