New Moon in Aquarius:  Zany Beats

New Moon in Aquarius: Zany Beats

The moon is new in Aquarius on January 24 (3:42 pm, CST). Popping out new patterns spontaneously? Eclipses in December and January help to define limits and boundaries, with practical concerns and realities weighing in heavily. This is the first new moon after them. What clean breaks (or starts) restlessly edge into the picture?

Aquarius asks what is best for everyone, acknowledging the diversity of the group. What is fair and just for all, taking into account the unique background of the individual? Judgmental behavior is rampant now, but this new moon in Aquarius hints at something different. Saturn in Capricorn is good medicine for accountability and work ethic. Having a rule-bound approach can be useful. But it can also become dogmatically rigid where scales tip out of balance and compassionate humanity gets side-checked. These themes are highlighted when Saturn enters Aquarius in March of 2020.

Icicles and snow cover the landscape in the deep winter; how can freedom be found in this climate? Is it through winter sports like skiing and skating? Or is it through a riveting new novel or television series that opens doors and adds a fresh perspective into life? Perhaps music or a painting will provide a portal out of the blizzard and into another world.

For help in setting up your boundaries and strengthening your reserves, try carrying a piece of prehnite with you. This stone is excellent for setting emotional and energetic boundaries as well as enhancing dreams and intuition. To help determine what’s best for the greater good and avoid judgmental attitudes, light one of Coventry Creations’ Truth and Justice candles. This blend of frankincense, myrrh, and sandalwood helps us ease chaos into order and enhances perception of reality. Finally, to get an energetic boost that would encourage you to seek out freedom in a chilly time, try adding the Eye of Horus’ Van Van Spray or Van Van Oil to your daily practice. This bright, lemongrass-leading scent is designed to increase positive vibes and help open the door to new adventures.

Jupiter, the planet of luck and abundance, ingresses from Sagittarius into Capricorn on December 3!

Will the landing be smooth? What journeys in the outer limits of Jupiter in Sagittarius become useful lessons? Jupiter in Capricorn asks for flights of fancy to be grounded and is associated with prudence regarding financial economics. It asks how wealth may be expanded using forethought.

Night and day are of equal length on the Fall Equinox as the sun enters Libra and emphasizes equality, fairness and justice. Libra is represented by the scales.

In what context can teamwork be a helpful ingredient? The dreaming wheels are turning, showing visions of what salve needs to be placed on what wound. Make a fix-it plan based on where it hurts.
