A Blue-Blooded Aquarian month begins Tomorrow!
The new moon that happens tomorrow morning (January 20th) EST begins a super-charged Aquarian month. This is because the next new moon (Feb. 18th) will also happen in Aquarius. Normally each new moon begins in the next successive sign but very rarely two new moons happen together in the same sign. So instead of Aquarian themes blending into Piscean themes in the month as they usually do, we start with Aquarius and end with Aquarius.
My experience as a professional astrologer leads me to anticipate these types of month a little differently. I consider them like running the full cycle on your dishwasher. Normally you run a quick cycle and that is sufficient to clean your dinner plates but once a year or so you go the full route and run it on full cycle. The full cycle not only cleans the dinner plates but cleans the whole machine, maybe even the room as well, who knows, these “full” cycles are super-powerful. So during this type of month I would expect Aquarian themes to run “full cycle.”
That’s not all that adds to the Aquarian super-power of this upcoming month. The ruler of Aquarius, Uranus, will connect with the nodes of the moon and will be in a close square to Pluto the whole month. Wow! Hold onto your hats, let’s add extra soap!
What are the Aquarian themes that I would expect to get emphasized?
–Revolution/Politics/Rebellion.: Everything political gets charged with rebellion against those “in power” forces. The small guy gets championed over the mega-corporation. The son stands up against father. Conspiracy theories gain momentum. Time to share the wealth more equally. The true themes of democracy and human rights get a boost.
–Wake Up!: The spiritual ideas that we are deluded, asleep, not aware of who we really are in terms of our soul or spirit get taught and experienced directly. Connection with past lives and with other worldly relatives. A sense that we are greater than these bodies leads to less emotions and greater courage.
–Impatience.: We have to do it now! There is no time to lose! Change is already way late. We can’t waste time with negotiation or diplomacy.
–Spontaneity.: Connected with impatience. Not a time of deep thinking or discussion. A willlingness to let go and engage action in whatever way “feels” right.
–Grin & Bear It.: The truth that I have witnessed is that under Aquarian influence we lose a lot, things change and that means sometimes they die or disappear so we are forced to grin and bear a lot of loss.
–The Internet and Technology.: Nothing needs to be added here. This is obvious.
–Alternative Innovation in Science.: Alternative methods to everything. Break-throughs that trounce what we think we knew. The solidity of our science breaks down revealing cracks in our thinking.
–The Experts compare notes. There is cross-communication between disciplines. The priests talk to the doctors. The women right’s group talk to the Native American group. The neurologists talk to the psychologists. The Dalai Lama talks to Rupert Murdock (alright maybe not that extreme, but you get the picture).
So here’s to an exciting month. I hope you are able to use it to give birth to those new ideas and new perspectives and that you don’t get too frenzied in destroying the old guard within your life.
