Dear Friends,

It is time to set your intentions. What would you like to accomplish during this lunation? This New Moon is at 29 degrees Aquarius. This New Moon is in the last degree of Aquarius. There is something that needs to be mastered. You either embrace it or let it go. It is probably the elephant in the room and you must embrace it. This is friendship, groups, and how you fit into the world at large.  

THE NEW MOON LAW OF ABUNDANCE is on FEBRUARY 18, 2015 6:47 PM EST at 29 degrees AQUARIUS 59 minutes. It is the CHINESE NEW YEAR OF THE SHEEP

The sign Aquarius is a fixed air sign. This is the sign that breaks with tradition to establish something original. Break with old patterns, old ideas and those things which have outgrown their usefulness, in every area of life. New ideas, brilliance, and inventiveness show us a new way. Public affairs become more important, as there is an interest in the welfare of others. People will tend to be very friendly, but impersonal. The house where Aquarius is in your chart is where you are encouraged not to conform. Free to be different and the need to get comfortable with who you are. You must dare to break away from established customs, to go one step further, and investigate the potentials of tomorrow.

Each sign is divided into three ten degree sections called decanates. This New Moon is in the Libra decanate of the sign Aquarius. This sign brings the power to debate, relate, and connect with others.  Beauty, balance, harmony, equality, and justice are important where this is in your chart. This sign focuses on our issues around relationships. Do we play well with others? All lessons of Libra involve the realization and integration of opposites, particularly those contrasts found within personal relationships. The primary purpose of this sign is one of sharing with others. The house that Libra is on in your chart is where you need to develop a healthy balance.

Each sign is divided into 12 2½ degree sections called dwads. This New Moon is in the Capricorn dwad of Aquarius. The sign of social responsibility and where we build our foundations in the outside world.  Capricorn describes the need to define your social territory and to find security in the outside world. Its house describes where you are territory-conscious, where you need to feel secure. Here, you need respect, recognition, and approval. The challenge for this house in your chart is perseverance and hard work. Patience is necessary.

The rulers of this lunation are Uranus and Saturn because they rule the sign Aquarius and Venus because it rules Libra the decanate this lunation is in. Uranus indicates the way in which a person’s urge for freedom and individuality is manifested. Saturn indicates our need for structure and boundaries.

The big news is Uranus is at 13 degrees of Aries joined with the South Node of the Moon. This is not an invitation it is a demand that you bring out the best side of yourself in all current activities. This New Moon is bringing the opportunity to face some things that you have avoided but maybe on the other hand things you have waited a long time for. Change is in the air and you have to step into it.

Saturn also rules this lunation and Saturn is just beginning its journey through Sagittarius. This will open some doors and opportunities for the future. Saturn wants us to learn new things so we can move forward in a confident way.

The only Planet in an earth sign at this time is Pluto and it is square to Uranus in Aries challenging the new you to fit into a changing system. 

The Moon, Sun, and Mercury are in Aquarius an air sign. These are energies that promote circulation with others. Uranus in Aries, Jupiter in Leo, and Saturn in Sagittarius are activating the fire signs. This brings enthusiasm and passion. Mercury is keeping company with Mars at the end of Pisces. Movement will come through inspiration.  You are already there. It is time to get over being a victim. It isn’t anyone else’s fault. It is just life.

THE SABIAN SYMBOL: AN UNSEALED LETTER

This is a symbol of the spiritual integrity of all things in and of themselves, dramatized here by the remarkable extent to which reliance may be placed on the discretion of others in even the most trivial details of day-by-day living. Suspicion is a poison to the mind whenever it becomes a set of temperament rather than a normal competency in applying the lessons of experience, and in consequence man must trust his fellows in general and in spite of his frequent disillusionments in order to discover how far he may do so in every given case. The keyword is CONFIDENCE.  When positive, the degree is a completeness of quickening to inner instincts of the being and a real willingness to trust them, and when negative, a lack of discrimination and an awkward insensitivity.

Astrology is an ancient and sacred language. It is the study of planetary cycles and their effects on human behavior. Understanding the daily movement of this energy helps you to be on time in your life with the right attitude.

The earth turning on its axis gives us night and day. The Moon orbiting the earth in 29.6 days gives our monthly cycles. The Earth orbits the Sun in a year and gives us Seasons. Astrology is the study of seasonal changes. Everything moves with this energy. Everything runs its course.

When you look at a model of the Universe Mercury, Venus, Earth, Mars, Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus, Neptune, and Pluto are all orbiting the Sun. They all have seasons. This creates all the energy that is moving that collectively effects what we are experiencing.
There's a metaphysical principle dealing with the relationship of the microcosm and macrocosm that says, "As above, so below. As within, so without." What is going on in the sky at any given time is telling the story of what is going on below at that moment. The information that Astrology provides helps us understand what is going on. It helps us know what time it is. Is it time to plant? Is it time to reap? There is a time a place for everything.

A soul comes into life at exactly the moment in time when the planetary conditions are perfect for what that soul needs to experience. The map of the sky at the exact moment that you took your first breath tells your story. Do you know yours?

Every New Moon, Full Moon and Planetary alignment is telling us day after day the energy we are dealing with. My intention is to describe these energies to help you have a smoother flow with your daily life.

Blessings, Brenda
