New Moon in Aquarius – February 2013
“Search for the seed of good in every adversity. Master that principle and you will own a precious shield that will guard you well through all the darkest valleys you must traverse. Stars may be seen from the bottom of a deep well, when they cannot be discerned from the mountaintop. So will you learn things in adversity that you would never have discovered without trouble. There is always a seed of good. Find it and prosper.” ~ Og Mandino
“The reason most people never reach their goals is that they don’t define them, learn about them or even seriously consider them as believable or achievable. Winners can tell you where they are going, what they plan to do along the way, and who will be sharing the adventure with them” ~ Denis Waitley
The Aquarian symbol is of a woman pouring water over the land, representing our dreams and visions being manifested in the physical world. At this time we are germinating our projects and creative endeavours that we have been rooting over the past few months.
The New Moon in Aquarius gives us a much needed boost of energy to get motivated and creative so we can shake off any sluggishness. Inspired, our perception can shift outside the box and we are able to see solutions to some of our most pressing challenges. Being an air sign it fuels our creativity and reduces our mental rigidity so we can see the bigger picture and our interconnectedness with the world around us.
Aquarius energy stimulates the consciousness of collective cooperation, so that we can start working together from a more harmonious, collaborative and supportive perspective. As we become more aware of our part in the web of life, how our actions affect others and the planet, and how everything is interconnected, feelings of alienation and isolation may arise if we are in an environment that fosters greed, self-interest, and exploitation.
Urged on by Uranus to ‘go our own way’ and take a stand against injustice and prejudice, this moon insists that we follow our authentic path. We also become more sensitive and aware of the underlying energy around us, as if the veil is lifted and we can see reality as it is and not as we would like it to be. We can no longer fool ourselves and now more than ever before, those that are not living their passions, in line with serving humanity and Mother Earth will find that this moon will bring up some uncomfortable truths.
The situation on Planet Earth is becoming more tenuous and we are now waking up to our past actions and realising that we must change. The Aquarius moon deepens and strengthens this thinking. The rebel within arises and we can feel invincible and ready for action. For those who have been awakening over the last few years, living with a lack of integrity is no longer an option. When we begin living in harmony with who we truly are, the Aquarian moon can bring deeper clarity, connection, devotion, passion and a deep desire to serve others and the planet.
I will end this with the wise words of Buddha :
“Thousands of candles can be lit from a single candle, and the life of the candle will not be shortened. Happiness never decreases by being shared.”
