New Moon in Aquarius:  Uncorking the Bottle

New Moon in Aquarius: Uncorking the Bottle

Aquarius New Moon Image

The new moon is in Aquarius on February 4 (2:03pm CDT). Aquarius, an air sign, lifts up and detaches from the weightiness in the planetary placements. Pioneering toward uncharted terrain and raising the middle finger to oppressive systems is motivating. Original ideas come into consciousness on how to fix problems, personal or societal. Connect and share ideas with like-minded friends! The new terrain is rich in seeding philosophies that embody the humanistic perspective that sees beyond just muscle and bone.

The pressure of making the grade, making the cut, and getting it right can serve the purpose of productivity. Yet a boundary-setting, wall-building philosophy can function on over-drive and smother the natural creativity it’s meant to enhance. The urge to impatiently charge ahead on a quest is strong, but be aware of encountering obstacles that trigger irritability. This frustration does not completely block progress per se, but pushes toward it.

An effervescent rebelliousness breaks loose of its constraints. The instinct to put the pedal to the metal and drive is hot behind the wheel, yet the gears are still in park. What bottle needs to be uncorked, shaken loose, or shaken free? A wild and unbridled force bursts forth from its cages. There’s a feeling of being so close to freedom that you can taste it…

To cool down anger and exercise patience, try some of Eye of Horus’ Meditation aromatherapy oil. It’s designed to help bring a calm, contemplative atmosphere. To help connect with friends and like-minded groups, try energizing yourself with Coventry Creations’ Happiness candle. It’s bright, cheery scent helps encourage a sunny outlook and optimism. To blow off steam in healthy ways, consider carrying a piece of tourmalinated quartz. It’s an excellent aid for transmuting the negative to the positive.

New Moon and Solar Eclipse in Capricorn:  Emergence From Underground

New Moon and Solar Eclipse in Capricorn: Emergence From Underground

The new moon is in Capricorn on January 5 (7:28 pm, CDT) and shortly thereafter, a solar eclipse transpires (7:41 pm, CDT). Pluto and Saturn fuse with the sun and moon, a powerful catalyst for re-birth.

The process of falling apart occurs in tandem with re-building and fortifying new structures. The roads, the buildings, and our government are going through a radical makeover. This could be applied to our personal lives if it triggers sensitive points in our natal chart. The toxins and poisons in our culture are purged as the collective shadow is faced. We feel our way into the territory of the unknown, a daunting task for a culture focused on the finite and bottom line.

The first new moon and eclipse of 2019 spurs the urge to push off and sprint in a new direction. Ample energy fuels ideas into action! And yet a rule-bound approach slows the process down, demanding accountability. If the demands of a results-oriented paradigm get too heavy, it’s up to us to create the boundaries we need to function and stay healthy in this pressure-cooker technology driven culture.

That which is buried deep underground decays to enrich the soil. What new formations will start to emerge from underground?

To create boundaries where needed, consider carrying a piece of prehnite. Prehnite is excellent at helping us set up energetic and especially empathic boundaries. For protection during times of change, consider adding Eye of Horus’ Dragon’s Blood oil to your routine. Dragon’s Blood helps add power to our energetic work while adding a strong protective element. To find joy in the dark of winter, consider lighting either the Joy incense or Hope incense from Shoyeido’s Angelic line. These Japanese incense blends are subtle, easy to light, and help provide a lighter, brighter energy to any atmosphere they’re burned in.

New Moon in Sagittarius: Dusting Off Photo Albums

Bounteous jolliness and optimism spark up during the new moon in Sagittarius on December 7 (1:20am, CDT)!

The warmth of fire crackles as we revel in the holiday season, for better or worse. The extra fieriness in the cosmos reflects the actual fires igniting in our country. This new moon opens the heart to empathize with the suffering of others, such as those affected by that devastation.

Getting lost in a movie, a painting, a song, or a dance stirs the imagination and channels the angst of difficult times. Dream of the future, envision changes for the better.

The holiday season is filled with nostalgia. Take a stroll down memory lane. It’s a time to reminisce about days gone by. A yearning for yesterday seeps into our holiday punch bowl. Dust off the old photo albums, discovering long lost messages. A fogginess and romanticism permeates the atmosphere…
