There will be two Aquarius new moons this month. This one is at 0 degrees and its new at 0.14am here, just making it into Wednesday. If you have any zero degree points in your chart – this will aspect it. If you want to get your chart, Astro.com is a free site to generate charts that I haven’t mentioned for a while.
Aquarius is ruled by both Saturn and Uranus. It’s a quirky, sociable energy that encompasses community, friendship, technology, the future, humanitarians and making the world a better place generally.
New moons are fabulous for setting new intentions and this new moon asks what do I want for the future ? How would I like the world according to me to be? How are my friendships travelling? Could I broaden my social circle to add more to my life?
April Elliott Kent is spot on when she says:
“Social networking sites are not about deep, personal friendships. They’re not even really about friends, in the strictest sense of the word. Rather, they’re about belonging, and being part of a community.” This is the vibe of Aquarius.”
Exploring Facebook as an Aquarian vibe as a manifestation of much of what Aquarius personifies. The Big Sky Astrology: New Moon in Aquarius: Friend Me post also goes on to say
‘Aquarius’ talent lies in those friendly connections with others who cross our paths – the relational grease that keep society’s gears moving smoothly and that joins us in together in collective identity, purpose, and responsibility.’
It’s a great reflection on this moon and I recommend it to you.
Jessica Shepherd describes another aspect of Aquarius in her post Moonkissd: Aquarius New Moon: Liberation Moon, the Uranian energy, that’s disruptive and tends to shift us to more authenticity – ready or not.
“Seek out Soothsayers and Truthsayers – friends you trust, to tell it how it is. Heed the spontaneous call of your intuition. What we label as “crazy talk” is often our intuition trying to burst out and bring more clarity and truthfulness to a situation.”
