New Moon In Aquarius
Psychologist Carl Jung described the spiritual path as an unfolding into wholeness. Rather than trying to deny the emotions that make us uncomfortable and keep us in a constant battle with ourselves, personal maturity requires that we embrace all of ourselves, even our messy, broken, imperfect sides, if we want to burst free from the cage of self-judgement and fear that we build around ourselves.
The New Moon in Aquarius is here to remind us that we are our own prison guards.
Our lives are defined by the stories we tell ourselves. Some of them are empowering, and help us live a fulfilling life. Many if not most of them are limiting walls that hold us back from realising our full potential. Saturn in Aquarius believes he has thought of everything and has all the answers. In the middle degree of a fixed Air sign he rules, he is strong and dignified, but his mind is closed, his thinking serious, and his thoughts inflexible. He favours logic over emotion, finds certainty in 'rightness', and looks on our imperfections uncompromisingly.
Saturn rules the knees. And bending the knee when dealing with authority. And Saturn is so strong right now, with four planets in Capricorn and three in Aquarius. All the planets are currently sitting tight within the same 120° of the zodiac, reflecting the intensity and focus of this phase of our lives. We are still shackled and humbled by the demands of the tiniest of tyrants, a virus so small you cannot see with the naked eye and yet so powerful to bring the whole world to its knees.
Today's New Moon is all about sowing the seed of possibility. Saturn undeniably pins us down, but he also offers us the chance to build resilience and a realistic future. It is not going to be easy, as these things never are, but then again our most enduring successes are never overnight or accidental. Jupiter in Pisces and Uranus in Taurus both represent the future, and are supportive of the strategies we devise over the next four weeks. While Jupiter in Pisces encourages us to unleash our wildest dreams, Uranus in Taurus wants us to take radical steps forward in pursuit of increased resourcefulness and financial or physical security.
