On New Moons release the past, any habits, conditioning, thoughts, beliefs that aren’t authentic or no longer serve you. At this time the Moon and Sun are united at the exact same degree in the sky, both their lights blocked from our sight, merging both conscious and unconscious aspects of our mind. Energy is bought into a contemplative and quiet mood. This makes rich soil for contacting your inner/higher self, planning and setting foundations for your path.
Write down what you are releasing, then burn them as you visualize and feel yourself let go with love and gratitude for how they have served you up until now.
New Moons are about Manifesting, so next plant the seeds of intention you want to sew, then water them with action. Write up to 10 intentions or affirmations to bring into your life over the next six months, by the Full Moon in AQUARIUS. This is when the Sun & Moon are opposite each other at their extreme ends of mutual polarity.
Focus on areas and approaches that AQUARIUS rules, such as:
- High/New Technology
- Humanitarian efforts
- Peer Groups
- Sudden change
- High voltage energy
- Exciting experiences and ideas
- Unique expression
- Genius/lightbulb moments
- The Mad Professor/Inventor
- “I easily express my genius in ways that others accept and support”
- “I easily give myself and others permission to fully express our unique individuality”
- “I easily have and act on inspiring, new, genius ideas”
- “I easily find innovative solutions to new and old problems”
- “I easily find myself revolutionizing my life”
- “I easily create the change I need in my life”
- “I easily yolk what is best to me with what is best for the greater good”
- “I easily feel a sense of equal ground with everyone I meet”
- “I easily maintain freedom in my relationships”
- “I easily find myself open to others points of view while maintaining my own”
- “I easily find myself enjoying exciting, revitalizing experiences”
Aquarius rules both detachment as well as group efforts that involve a common ideal.
While the Sun and Moon, aka, our conscious and subconscious minds, are in unison this is the perfect time to set your goals on ‘being the change’. With Politics devolving into farce, the power of the group to make change is no more relevant than now. The rights and freedoms we enjoy every day have been hard won by people banding together in common cause, standing up for what they know they deserve at both a personal level and for the greater whole.
Where in your life do you need to stage a revolution? Your finances, career, relationship, your community? Is it time you pushed your mind outside of your daily routine/rut to beat a new path with a different way of thinking and feeling?
Since thoughts create a chemical response we experience as feelings, and feelings tend to work as a feedback loop to creating similar thoughts to the ones that made them, then hacking this system = different results in perception, behavior, and action, at this point, you just changed your reality.
In the 70’s, part of the women’s movement for gender equality involved ‘consciousness raising groups’. What kind of group can you experience or even form that would help you change your reality to something more in line with what your heart knows it needs?
Chiron is conjunct Venus and in a slightly uncomfortable position to the New Moon. So this is a time to set intentions in terms of healing wounds of the feminine principle. With Mars conjunct Venus there’s likely to be actioning, albeit surreptitiously and behind the scenes as Chiron, Venus and Mars are all in Artistic and gentle Pisces. Meditation group anyone? Art for change?
Trump’s election has catalyzed women into non-violent gatherings, making a show in numbers that are too large and plentiful to ignore. How can you catalyze and consolidate your own natural resources to make the change within yourself and your life that free you to reach your potential. Eg, mind mastery, lean into the positive, expose yourself to new ideas with an open mind, start your own consciousness-raising group, make your personal statements public etc.
This is a great opportunity to focus on empowering yourself and others by embracing your own authority. Don’t wait, check information and beware of blindly accepting fiction as fact, or other peoples realities as your own. This is where change can start.
YES. WE. CAN
In unity and solidarity,
