Aquarius Lunation Cycle Feb 11 – Mar 12
Chart for the Aquarius New Moon
Sabian Symbol for 24º Aquarius:
“A Man, Having Overcome His Passions, Teaches Deep Wisdom In Terms Of His Experience” This degree symbolizes the importance of communicability in order to share knowledge learned from previous personal involvement. — from An Astrological Mandala © 1973 Dane Rudhyar
Highlights of the New Moon at 23º Aquarius 17′:
An air sign with an emphasis on abstract thought and idealism, Aquarius is ruled by the planets Saturn and Uranus. Practicality, the ability to focus, futuristic thinking, and dedication to humanity are qualities that become highlighted during this cycle. Add four more planets to the sign and you have a full house of weird. Expect the unexpected.
There is an open door to favorable exploration (Venus conjunct Jupiter). This could be a wish-upon-a-star cycle, if you are ready to make a clear commitment and can resist the urge for immediate gratification.
The caution, especially with Mercury retrograde in Aquarius, is to take it slow. Revisit innovative ideas, abstract ideals, and traditional concepts to see if they have value before rushing ahead. Finding humor in the oddity of the situation will help alleviate the stress (Saturn square Uranus). Observe, analyze, act. All actions have consequences.
Advice for this cycle:
This is an excellent cycle for experimentation. Embrace every moment as an opportunity for discovery.
Heal old relationship wounds by opening to trust and intimacy. Have the courage to see the beauty in human weakness, including your own, and witness the creativity found in forgiveness and compassionate action.
The cleansing process of the last cycle has opened the space for reinventing dreams. Aquarius correlates to Renewal on the Medicine Wheel. Continue the process of bringing the annual cycle to completion while re-imagining the future.
Get in touch with your wishes. Reawaken your hope and find inspiration by releasing the fear of being different and embracing your uniqueness. Trust that what makes you different is in service to your purpose.
