The Aquarius new moon is conjunct messenger Mercury, which takes Aquarius’ lofty ideals and starts making quick intellectual transactions.
It’s talkative. It’s innovative. It’s a plan so crazy it just might work – especially as Jupiter is offering good luck and visionary support from Sagittarius. Bright ideas abound.
Aquarius is ruled by Saturn, so we need to talk about that line-up of Saturn, Pluto, and the South Node in Capricorn.
I refuse to sugar-coat this combination as ‘transformative’ or some other New Age fluff word.
It’s a tough situation. Difficult decisions will need to be made. Avoidance is not an option. It’s a survival situation. You will survive and you will emerge with the resilience that only endurance of loss can give.
No-nonense Saturn is softened by the sextile to Neptune in Pisces. Neptune takes the edge off the hard-nosed ambition of Saturn in Capricorn – or, perhaps, numbs you to the worst of the pain and loss that is continuing to build in this sector of your chart.
At best, Saturn helps Neptune structure the dream and manifest it in the material world. Nothing comes of this aspect without real work, but if you lack a soulful connection to your inspiration there is nothing to work towards.
There is a fresh influx of genius at this new moon. Unfortunately, without practical implementation, it comes to nothing.
To put it crudely, you’ve got to get off your arse and out of your head, and get dirty in the material world.
It also has to be ethically sound. Run some ‘what if’ scenarios to test your manifesto against the broader impact.
Are you doing the right thing? Do you make a difference? In a good way. And not just to you.
What is the broader consequences of the change you wish to make in the world? Do your intentions have a positive impact for humanity, for the Earth, and all living beings?
Connect with your vision; then, walk your talk.
