Aquarius New Moon and Solar Eclipse

New Moon 27 Aquarius 08′ Solar Eclipse

8.06am 16 February, 2018 (Sydney AEDT), 9.06pm 15 February 2018 (GMT)

There are a few aspects to talk about in the days leading up to this New Moon, so I’m scheduling this post a few days earlier than I normally would. When you set your intentions though, take those aspects – the ones I’ll be telling you about in the next couple of days – into consideration.

Given that it’s the 2nd New Moon after the solstice, the Aquarius New Moon also coincides with Chinese New year.

I don’t know a lot about Chinese astrology, but I do know that this is the year of the Dog. I just googled my Sheep/Goat horoscope to see what the Year of the Dog had in store for me (don’t ask me for the site, I seriously was just googling around) and apparently I need to be wary of accidents when scuba diving and mountain climbing. Seriously though, it seems there are some surprises and successes, and I need to make health my top priority and watch also for shoulder injuries (just when I’m getting back into swimming).

Anyways, I’ll clean the house this afternoon and wash my hair – part of the whole new year thing is to go into the new year with a clean slate and clean hair. Washing your hair in the first couple of days of the new year can apparently wash your prosperity away. I’ll also roll oranges…or is it mandarins?…over my threshold…just to be sure.

A new Chinese lunar year means a new moon for us all – and that new moon is in Aquarius…so what perfect time to think about your connections.

We’ve been here on the Sunshine Coast for almost a year now and I can say that the only thing I miss about my life in Sydney is friends and family. Working from home I haven’t had a lot of opportunities to meet new people – not yet. I may never have met some of the people I actively “talk” to every day on Facebook, Twitter, or Instagram (mostly Instagram – I’m rarely to be found on Facebook these days), but there are a number of people in social media and the blogging community who are part of my sprawling connection network. They’re in my life in some way for some reason. We’ve all connected for a reason.

Everyone that we connect with teaches us something about ourselves, and – good or bad – is there any better gift? Perhaps the greatest challenge we have is to grow into our own skin…to become who we need to be…who we are meant to be.

Sure we have issues with fear, and desire, and hunger and power, but at the end of the day, the only person whose opinion of us really matters to us is our own.

Most of the time we don’t think too much about this. Why would we? Every so often though, something rings our bell. An issue with authority, someone threatening our independence, someone forcing us into the category they believe we should be in, a cause we passionately want to band together with others to pursue.

Yes, what I’m talking about here is the Uranian story. It tends to come up each time transiting Uranus triggers something in your chart, or each time Uranus itself is triggered.

To an extent, it’s also being triggered now – at the Aquarius New Moon.

Wherever 27 Aquarius 08’ (or thereabouts) is in your chart is where issues of independence, individuality, attitude to authority, conformity and connectivity are being raised. It’s also where you now have an opportunity to set intentions to tweak these issues.

The thing about New Moons is that it’s dark – you don’t know what’s around the corner. You have to take the first steps into the dark without knowing what’s around the corner.

The other thing about New Moons is, very often nothing happens to you, it happens within you. You’re the one who needs to set the intention and see what happens.

This New Moon happens to also be a solar eclipse – reinforcing the Uranian themes of this New Moon. (If you want to know more about eclipses, I posted something a few weeks ago.)

To be really technical, this one is from the same series of eclipses (Saros Series 1 South) that last came around in January and February 2000, and before that in January 1982.

To quote from Bernadette Brady’s The Eagle and the Lark:

‘This family of eclipses is concerned with ideas and their enthusiastic expression. If this eclipse affects your chart, you will be flooded with ideas or options. There may seem to be an element of haste, but if you can go with the new ideas, they will have positive outcomes.

Doing it for yourself…

As you probably know by now, this site isn’t about telling you what will happen, but rather giving you the tools to attempt to identify the themes for yourself. That’s the DIY part of the tagline. If you’ve been reading along, you should know how to find where the New Moon is happening in your chart. If you’re new to this site (welcome), duck across and check out this post before you go any further.

The position you’re looking for is 27 Aquarius 08, or thereabouts. This is the area of life that you’re being asked to look at your connections, your individuality, your future.

Now, let’s set our intentions. Think about the area of life you’re focusing on and set small achievable targets. Make sure that you do at least one thing towards this goal this month. If you’re unsure where to start, check out this post.

  • How do the concerns of this house make you feel?
  • How would you like to feel about them?
  • What positive steps can you take over the next four weeks to minimise the gap between how you feel about this are and how you’d like to feel?

*****Write it down!!!!!!!!!!******

This is the 12th house for me, so I’m focusing on how I relax, unwind – and the fact that I rarely do either – and those habits that continually bring me undone. The 12th is a house whether things tend to be done subconsciously and, as Aquarius is a fixed sign, the habits are, shall we say, well ingrained.

Make like Aquarius and think future, think authentic and think outside the box. What can you do over the next 28 days to change this situation? Are there any quick wins to be had? Be a little progressive and left-field when you’re setting intentions.

If you don’t have any idea about your birth time, or can’t be faffed working it out, you can follow the solar guide:

  • If your Sun or Ascendant is in Aquarius, this New Moon falls in your1st house.
  • If your Sun or Ascendant is in Pisces this New Moon falls in your12th house.
  • If your Sun or Ascendant is in Aries, this New Moon falls in your11th house.
  • If your Sun or Ascendant is in Taurus, this New Moon falls in your10th house.
  • If your Sun or Ascendant is in Gemini, this New Moon falls in your9th house.
  • If your Sun or Ascendant is in Cancer this New Moon falls in your8th house.
  • If your Sun or Ascendant is in Leo this New Moon falls in your7th house.
  • If your Sun or Ascendant is in Virgo, this New Moon falls in your6th house.
  • If your Sun or Ascendant is in Libra, this New Moon falls in your5th house.
  • If your Sun or Ascendant is in Scorpio, this New Moon falls in your4th house.
  • If your Sun or Ascendant is in Sagittarius, this New Moon falls in your3rd house.
  • If your Sun or Ascendant is in Capricorn, this New Moon falls in your2nd house.

If you haven’t been doing so, why not try journaling your lunar journey- you’ll be surprised how, in hindsight, more has been going on than you might have thought.

Gong xi fa cai- happiness and prosperity…

 

 

Mercury in Aquarius

Mercury moves into Aquarius later today or the wee hours of tomorrow morning – depending on where you live.

Yeah, so what? I hear you say. ‘I’m not an Aquarian,’ you say, ‘so it can’t affect me.’

Yeah…nah. The thing is, the movement of the planets provides the planetary or astro weather forecast for all of us. That means that like it or not, Aquarian or not, for the few weeks that Mercury is in Aquarius, whatever part of your chart is ruled by Aquarius will be where you start to ask more questions, look for more knowledge, want to know stuff.

It’s also a good few weeks to do some future planning, get your head around the latest and greatest app or social media platform and to have that relationship talk that you’ve been needing to have. Actually, I lied about the last one. It’s not a great time at all to do communication that is deep and meaningful in nature. Wait for Mercury in Pisces for that – and bring tissues….just saying.

Want to know more? Of course you do – especially if you have Mercury in Aquarius, or Mercury conjunct Uranus. Duck over and have a look at something I prepared (much) earlier. The link is here.

Doing it for yourself…

Happy Birthday Aquarius

Tomorrow the Sun will be in Aquarius. This is possibly the most misunderstood sign of the zodiac – although I often say that about Scorpio as well – so if you want to know more about Aquarius, you’ll find it here.

Doing it for yourself…

We all have Aquarius somewhere in our chart. It’s in this part of life that we need to approach with a vision of tomorrow rather than yesterday. Check in on this part of life – can it be approached with a quirkier, possibly less conventional attitude? Does it need to be mixed up a bit?

Aquarius is in the 12th house for me, so this month is always one where the energy is utilised to finish off and ease into my new astrological year ie when the Sun comes into my sign. For me, it’s what I need to leave behind and what I’llbe taking forward.

Check out where Aquarius is in your chart – that’s where you’re getting the warmth of the Sun’s energy right now – why not use it to do a health check on this part of your life? Are you applying sufficient focus to this part of life?

Not sure where Aquarius is in your chart? Check out this post or follow the solar guide below. Don’t know what the houses mean? Check out this post. If you’re new to this site (or new to astrology) start at the beginning of the Toolbox lessons.

  • If your Sun or Ascendant is in Aquarius, the Sun is shining in in your 1st house.
  • If your Sun or Ascendant is in Pisces, the Sun is shining in in your 12th house.
  • If your Sun or Ascendant is in Aries, the Sun is shining in in your 11th house.
  • If your Sun or Ascendant is in Taurus, the Sun is shining in in your 10th house.
  • If your Sun or Ascendant is in Gemini, the Sun is shining in in your 9th house.
  • If your Sun or Ascendant is in Cancer, the Sun is shining in in your 8th house.
  • If your Sun or Ascendant is in Leo, the Sun is shining in in your 7th house.
  • If your Sun or Ascendant is in Virgo, the Sun is shining in in your 6th house.
  • If your Sun or Ascendant is in Libra, the Sun is shining in in your 5th house.
  • If your Sun or Ascendant is in Scorpio, the Sun is shining in in your 4th house.
  • If your Sun or Ascendant is in Sagittarius, the Sun is shining in in your 3rd house.
  • If your Sun or Ascendant is in Capricorn, the Sun is shining in in your 2nd house.

Venus in Aquarius

Venus is about to move into Aquarius. In Aquarius, she takes pleasure in the quirky, the unusual, the non-conventional.

If you want to know more about Venus in Aquarius, you’ll find the post here. If you have Venus in Aquarius, Venus in close aspect to Uranus, or are (or know) an Aquarian woman, you might want to have a glance.

Doing it for yourself…

We all have Aquarius somewhere in our chart, and it’s this part of life that Venus will be bestowing her presence on. It’s this part of life that you’ll find pleasure in. Consider the avant-garde, something you haven’t done before, people or places that are different to the people you usually associate with and the places you usually go. Experiment, play, and look forward, not back.

Of course, how this manifests for you will depend on what part of life Venus is transiting while she’s in Aquarius. In my chart, Venus is transiting the 12th house (I’m working with whole houses more and more these days). I’m trying meditation on for size at the moment – and looking to restart a yoga practice after about 10 years (or is it more?) away from it. I’m exploring my inner hippy a tad more.

If you don’t have your chart, read this post on how to get one.

Venus will be in Sagittarius until 11/2/18.

Aquarius Full Moon…and Lunar Eclipse

Let me tell you something about ants.

We know that they work together in order to transport that bread-crumb or piece of cheese from your picnic table to wherever they need to. What we didn’t know is how they worked together.

(Those of you who know a little about Aquarius can see where I’m heading with this- am I right?)

The ant who found that breadcrumb knows she (and most of the heavy lifting in the ant world is done by the females) can’t do what she needs to do on her own. That’s where the community comes in.

There’s no jockeying for poll position under the spotlight when you’re an ant. Nor is there a specific hierarchy or pecking order that needs to be followed. Rather than just knowing what to do or following a leader, they actually display a mix of conforming and erratic behaviours.

Some ants go with the flow, others run around looking for a new path forward. Sometimes the direction changes markedly. The leadership changes seamlessly without argument or grandstanding. It’s a little like the ant equivalent of kids sport where everyone has the turn to be the captain. In kids sport it’s supposed to help build individual courage within the structure of a team. I’m not sure what the purpose is in the ant world- other than to get that breadcrumb off your picnic blanket and to wherever it needs to go.

This all leads me (of course it does) to the Aquarius Full Moon. It’s that balance between the individual and the collective, between self-expression and the joining of like minds, between creativity and collaboration. It’s the point where you take what you’ve created and send it out into the world to meet your hopes and dreams.

The Full Moon in Aquarius is all about acknowledging all the bits and pieces that make us individual, yet also all the bits and pieces that we have to work with in order to co-exist in society. The Full Moon in Aquarius is that point where we acknowledge that we quite simply can’t do it alone.

Socially cohesive tribes who have common goals, watch each others backs and trust each other have an awful lot of advantages. It’s not just about ants. Even fish know this. Just watch schools of fish wheeling and turning together, presenting a united front to the shark who sees them simply as entrée course. The individual is less important than the tribe. All of their differences are all brought together to form the whole…yet each still continues (assuming they don’t end up as dinner, that is) to exist and express themselves as an individual- however it is that fish express themselves, I guess…

We are also tribal. To exist we need others. To achieve our personal goals we need interaction with others- regardless of whether we like them, tolerate them, agree with them or can identify with them. It’s not surprising that the cooperative has adapted and flourished and adapted and flourished. And yes, the repetition was deliberate.

The problems begin when two groups compete with each other for something that the other wants…when egos get in the way.

The thing is We each bring to the table something different for the melting pot. As individuals we form that conglomerate that is humanity, and as humanity we need to recognize that every individual plays a part and deserves to be treated humanely.

It’s all too easy to share with and associate with those only who reflect ourselves- the person we see in the mirror. Yet just how rich and fulfilling can it be to also identify with those who don’t?

I have conference coming up next weekend. It’s for the romance writers of Australia – and as far as romance writers go, they (and astrologers) should be my tribe. I’m presenting at it, and I’m catching up with some friends at it, yet I know that I’m going to feel (hopefully only a little) that I don’t belong or that I have little to contribute.

I‘ve never felt that I fitted neatly into any specific tribe. And, with most planets in my chart hitting Uranus, I’m actually quite proud of all the little weird quirks that make me who I am. Yet at times like this, I wish that I did both belong and stand out.

Wherever 15 Aquarius 25 falls in your chart is where you need to be thinking about the balance between self-expression (or ego) and the collective. I know that there will be times over the weekend where I’ll need to retreat to my own space to get my own energy back. Aquarius is in the 12th house for me, so this makes absolute sense.

Given that both Leo and Aquarius are fixed signs, achieving this balance and breaking through to the next level is probably going to involve turning some preconceived idea on its head. That’s ok- it’s stepping outside the group and doing a little erratic running around that can help you find a new way forward.

You just need the courage to do so- and that’s your call.

One last thing, this Full Moon is also an eclipse – which makes it an uber Full Moon. If there is something that needs to be exposed or realised, there’s a good chance that it will happen – or at least begin to happen. Just saying.

Doing it for yourself…

By now you should know the drill. If not, check out this post and refer back to Tuesday Toolbox lesson 1 and 1.1 if you need help drafting or reading your chart.

If you want to know more about eclipses, refer to this post, and if you want a personalised eclipse report, you can get one from Big Sky Astrology – the link is in the sidebar on the website.

Full Moon/ Lunar Eclipse 8 August, 2017 at 4.10am (East Coast Australia) 15 Aquarius 25’. If you’re in the northern hemisphere, that will be sometime on the 7th August for you.

A note on the Saros Series…

If you’d read my recent Toolbox post on eclipses (it’s linked above) you’ll know that each pair of eclipses belongs to a Saros Series (SS). This eclipse, and the one on August 21/22 (depending on where in the world you are) belongs to SS North 1. This series was last active in 1999, and before that, 1981.

Bernadette Brady, in The Eagle and the Lark, writes this about it:

“Unexpected events involving friends or groups place a great deal of pressure on personal relationships…The individual would be wise not to make any hasty decisions since information is distorted and possibly false. The eclipse also has an essence of tiredness or health problems about it.”

Of course, the extent to which you’re impacted will depend on how closely the eclipse aspects your chart – and the points that are being aspected. Remember, eclipses are unpredictable little buggers – which make them, well, unpredictable, but if you want a clue and can remember that far back, you could find it in the events around or following July/August 1999.

 

Mercury in Aquarius…

Mercury moves into Aquarius today.

Yeah, so what? I hear you say. I’m not an Aquarian, you say, so it can’t affect me.

Yeah…nah. The thing is, the movement of the planets provides the planetary or astro weather forecast for all of us. That means that like it or not, Aquarian or not, for the few weeks that Mercury is in Aquarius, whatever part of your chart is ruled by Aquarius will be where you start to ask more questions, look for more knowledge, want to know stuff. It’s also a good few weeks to do some future planning, get your head around the latest and greatest app or social media platform and to have that relationship talk that you’ve been needing to have. Actually, I lied about the last one. It’s not a great time at all to do communication that is deep and meaningful in nature. Wait for Mercury in Pisces for that – and bring tissues….just saying.

Want to know more? Of course you do. Duck over and have a look at last year’s post. The link is here.

Mercury will be in Aquarius until February 26.

 

Aquarius New Moon…

New Moon 8 Aquarius 15′

Gong xi fa cai- happiness and prosperity…

It’s the Australia Day long weekend here – well, with Australia Day falling on a Thursday, plenty of people have turned it into a long weekend. Our house went “live” on the market on Wednesday and I’m using this weekend to get some real words done. At least, I’m hoping that’s what is happening – given that I’m writing this at 5am on a hot Tuesday morning a couple of weeks ago.

Given that it’s the 2nd New Moon after the solstice, tomorrow is also Chinese New year.

I don’t know a lot about Chinese astrology, but I do know that I (and many others) found the Year of the Monkey tough. I just googled my Sheep/Goat horoscope to see what the Year of the Rooster had in store for me (don’t ask me for the site, I seriously was just googling around) and apparently the first half of my year will be tough and the 2nd half will start to even out. It will also require much hard work and prudence with money. No shit, Sherlock. (For any non Aussies out there, that pretty much means something like tell me something I didn’t already know, or that wasn’t obvious.)

Anyways, I’ll clean the house this afternoon and wash my hair – part of the whole new year thing is to go into the new year with a clean slate and clean hair. Washing your hair in the first couple of days of the new year can wash your prosperity away. Now I know where I went wrong last year.

A new Chinese lunar year means a new moon for us all- and that new moon is in Aquarius…so what perfect time to think about your connections.

With the move imminent, I’ve been thinking a lot about mine. ‘But you don’t know anyone up there,’ people say. ‘Oh, but I do,’ I reply. I may never have met some of the people I actively “talk” to every day on Facebook, Twitter, or Instagram (mostly instagram – I’m rarely to be found on Facebook), but there are a number of people in Brisbane and in the Sunshine Coast who are part of my sprawling connection network. They’re in my life in some way for some reason. We’ve all connected for a reason.

Everyone that we connect with teaches us something about ourselves, and – good or bad – is there any better gift? Perhaps the greatest challenge we have is to grow into our own skin…to become who we need to be…who we are meant to be.

Sure we have issues around fear, and desire, and hunger and power, but at the end of the day, the only person whose opinion of us really matters to us is our own.

Most of the time we don’t think too much about this. Why would we? Every so often though, something rings our bell. An issue with authority, someone threatening our independence, someone forcing us into the category they believe we should be in, a cause we passionately want to band together with others to pursue.

Yes, what I’m talking about here is the Uranian story. It tends to come up each time transiting Uranus triggers something in your chart, or each time Uranus itself is triggered.

To an extent it’s also being triggered now- at the Aquarius New Moon.

Wherever 8 Aquarius 15’ (or thereabouts) is in your chart is where issues of independence, individuality, attitude to authority, conformity and connectivity are being raised. It’s also where you now have an opportunity to set intentions to tweak these issues.

The thing about New Moons is that it’s dark- you don’t know what’s around the corner. You have to take the first steps into the dark without knowing what’s around the corner.

The other thing about New Moons is, very often nothing happens to you, it happens within you. You’re the one who needs to set the intention and see what happens.

At this New Moon, with Mars poised to tear off into Aries, and Mercury moving ever closer to Pluto in Capricorn, and Saturn squaring Venus, now is the time to dream your goals into life. How do you do that? Take your dreams, write them down, set some intentions, and commit to them. There. Done.

Doing it for yourself…

If you’ve been reading along, you should know how to find where the New Moon is happening in your chart. If you’re new to this site (welcome), duck across and check out this post before you go any further.

Now, let’s set our intentions. Think about the area of life you’re focusing on and set small achievable targets. Make sure that you do at least one thing towards this goal this month. If you’re unsure where to start, check out this post.

  • How do the concerns of this house make you feel?
  • How would you like to feel about them?
  • What positive steps can you take over the next four weeks to minimise the gap between how you feel about this are and how you’d like to feel?

*****Write it down!!!!!!!!!!******

Some suggestions are below, but make like Aquarius and think future, think authentic, and think outside the box. What can you do over the next 28 days to change this situation? Are there any quick wins to be had? Think outside your normal boxes for this one, and reach out. If you’ve been neglecting friends- even your virtual ones- now is the time to make a little effort to stay in touch.

  • If Aquarius falls in your 11th, you might need to ask yourself whether your hopes and dreams are truly yours, or are you conforming to someone else’s idea of what you should be aiming for.
  • If Aquarius is in the 7th, look at your relationships. Do you have freedom to move, to breathe, to be yourself? Is this a conversation you need to be having with someone else? What about the 1st? Does your personal style fit who you are, or are you wearing the uniform of someone else?
  • What if the New Moon falls into the 8th house, you might be concerned about, say, your credit card debts. Are you spending too much of other people’s money? Do you want to feel more in control over this part of your life? Maybe a good 4 week goal might be to monitor your spending, or consolidate your credit cards, perhaps see a financial advisor, take responsibility for your own actions.
  • If the New Moon falls into the 4th house, you might find your concerns are around home- how secure, stable and comfortable you feel, whether you feel that past conditioning is somehow holding you back from what you want to do now. Maybe home is draining your energy rather than replenishing it. Consider any quick improvements you can make, perhaps read up on feng shui to see how you can improve the flow of positive energy, maybe see a counsellor over family related problems. A quick fix might be a clean up or de-cluttering session.

Want a shortcut?

  • If your Sun or Ascendant is in Aquarius, this New Moon falls in your 1st house.
  • If your Sun or Ascendant is in Pisces this New Moon falls in your 12th house.
  • If your Sun or Ascendant is in Aries, this New Moon falls in your 11th house.
  • If your Sun or Ascendant is in Taurus, this New Moon falls in your 10th house.
  • If your Sun or Ascendant is in Gemini, this New Moon falls in your 9th house.
  • If your Sun or Ascendant is in Cancer this New Moon falls in your 8th house.
  • If your Sun of Ascendant is in Leo this New Moon falls in your 7th house.
  • If your Sun or Ascendant is in Virgo, this New Moon falls in your 6th house.
  • If your Sun or Ascendant is in Libra, this New Moon falls in your 5th house.
  • If your Sun or Ascendant is in Scorpio, this New Moon falls in your 4th house.
  • If your Sun or Ascendant is in Sagittarius, this New Moon falls in your 3rd house.
  • If your Sun or Ascendant is in Capricorn, this New Moon falls in your 2nd house.

Remember…

Often times absolutely nothing will happen…or seem to happen…even if you are receiving a direct contact. When it comes to the moon, the effects are usually quite subtle.

If you haven’t been doing so, why not try journaling your lunar journey- you’ll be surprised how, in hindsight, more has been going on than you might have thought.

Something about hard places and Aquarius…

Thursday January 19, 2017

Moon in Libra

Mars square Saturn

Did anyone say rock and a hard place? Yeah, possibly, but both Mars and Saturn are in mutable signs, so these two are more likely to forget to hold their ground.

Mars and Saturn aspects are generally about caution, and often about fear. The advice is that instead of charging off you proceed slowly, and if you’re making excuses, ask yourself whether it’s because you’re scared. Be honest.

Another thing that can get thrown up under this aspect is problems with superiors – or, rather, people who might be in a position of authority over you. Again, though, this mightn’t be unreasonable – it could just appear so. Again, be honest.

What else? Early tomorrow morning the Sun moves into Aquarius. This means it’s warming whatever part of your chart is ruled by Aquarius. Want more info? Here’s a link to last year’s post.
