Jan 27, 2017, 4:07 pm PST
Happy New Moon, Everyone!
The sign of Aquarius is the sign associated with the “Dawning of the New Age”, bringing hope for the future and a catalyst for breakthroughs. Uranus, Aquarius’s modern ruling planet is known to be a planet of liberation, revolution and chaos; it also inspires unity through diversity. Aquarius traditional ruler, Saturn, on the other hand lays down the law of rules and regulations and promises trials and tribulations for incompetence and lawlessness.
During this New Moon in Aquarius fresh and brilliant ideas will be highlighted. Unexpected opportunities will be revealed that can enhance our goals and vision for the future. Enthusiasm will be apparent in which the majority of us will be seeing a ‘spark of light’ for alternative ways to be a part of the whole community.
Later in the evening of this lunation the doer planet Mars hurries into his home sign Aries, and will remain in the same sign until March 10. This will greatly impact our decision making such as implementing new ways to protect /defend the self, principles and public standing (Mars and Uranus are closest to 10th house cusp).
Uranus/Aries in opposition to Jupiter/Libra could prevent us from seeing others’ point of views; we only see the difference between ‘them and me’. The Moon is always darkest during the New Moon. At this time period, Mars is at the tail end of Pisces (entering Aries). Being gentle with our ways, ideology, opinions, and standards may not be priorities around this period. Give it a few days to gain a better insight of the future.

9 degrees Aquarius indicates, “A flag is turning into an eagle; the dynamic incorporation of new social values individuals who exemplify the spiritual potential and the greatest significance of these values.
There comes a time that collective social ideals are no longer acceptable, and Man decides to turn his back on them. That’s being eccentric! You will be strange. You will be odd. At times, you will be shunned. But you will be You!
