Mother Moon is double- dipping this month with TWO New Moons, this second one in Aquarius on the First of February at 12 degrees.
The two luminaries, Sun and Moon, will reset their agenda in more high-minded realms as their vision is recast in a broader humanitarian perspective.
Saturn is in the mix of this new lunation cycle. Let's invoke the self-reflective and contemplative aspects of this Master of Time and allow slow and patient approaches to any challenges.
It's time to take a deeper look at where we've been these last two years and what we've garnered by reigning in the fast pace we were used to.
Aquarius can bring a more celestial, long range wisdom which will assist us in staying objective as global shifts are occurring.
It's time to acknowledge and honor that, not only is humanity a unity, but that we are part of the organism of Earth. We are her network of thinking!
But let's check in on Aphrodite, the love Goddess. She's part of the annual pile up in Capricorn, the traveling caravan of Mars, Mercury, Pluto AND the Moon. Mars is approaching her and they'll come together next week.
What we can hope is that Aphrodite will soften whatever impulse Mars has to acquire territory and defeat its imagined foes.
May her love nature prevail. In Capricorn she has the wisdom of many years of experience to help quell the fiery, impetuous Mars.
Be a lover, Mars, not a warrior!
Our Aphrodite will be opposite Black Moon Lilith during this New Moon. Lilith is at 11 degrees of Cancer, shepherding the Earth, Gaia, as love Goddess Venus engages with Lilith to help construct a more equitable system of Justice on our planet.
On Friday the 4th, the Sun and Saturn conjoin at the midpoint of Aquarius, 15 degrees. This is a Royal degree of a fixed sign and will be the beginning of a Saturnian cycle that will create long-lasting new social structures.
Let's make these new structures express the broad-minded ways of Aquarius and enlist the thrill of the electricity of quantum jumps!
Let's take the leap together!
