With so much happening in my life, and “behind the scenes,” I figured I’d draw up the this chart for the New Moon in Aquarius (Sun and Moon in Aquarius at 19 degrees). As you can see in the image, Aquarius is ascending for this New Moon in Aquarius as well. Further adding to the energy of Aquarius is its modern ruler, Uranus. Uranus has a lot of play right now. So there’s lots of creativity, electricity, unexpected surprises, and the wacky-weird “flashes of insight.” Where’s the group? How is our tribe?
- Sun and Moon conjunction Sextile Uranus “new teams, groups, connections”
- Mercury “communication” and Venus “values” Squaring “new-fangled” Uranus
- Mars Quincunx Uranus – “awkward starts” “sporadic energy”
- Uranus Square Pluto – Yep, not exact, but still super-active; revolution
With Mars Quincunx Uranus we may have a lot of fizzle – energy, but a little wobbly confusion about our initiatives. This is okay, simply because Mars will be retrograding in a couple of months giving us plenty of time to re-consider how we “start”, “motivate”, and bring our energy to our new projects. Then, where does the energy come from to continue?
For me, I’ve got my natal S. Node in Aquarius highly activated right now. My desire to post today further strengthens my sense for my past-life astrological tendencies. There’s been a long time soul’s movement with groups and energies surrounding the collective. I have lots of contacts and friends with Aquarius as Sun, Moon, Ascendant, or both. Plus, my natal Uranus is highly aspected (which means it gets a lot of play).
For those who are familiar or not, in many circles, Aquarius-Uranus is considered as the sign/planet ruling astrology, but many also in the classics look to Mercury. Many schools of astrological thought consider both to some extent because astrology is a communicated perspective – involving thought, analysis, and of course intuition and experience; it’s an art, after all. Believe me, the more I learn about Chinese medicine (and differing theories, (and traditions that are not-Chinese…aka…Japanese… etc!!! but are indeed unified wholes and community conversations) the more I realize I am simply doing more of the same thing as astrology!
Chiron’s involvement with Jupiter and the Nodes
I want to add that right now, Chiron is forming a conjunction with the S. Node in Pisces ~ speaking of intuition, art, and the transcendent qualities of spiritual intelligence. Chiron is referred to as the wounded-healer, etc. etc. What is interesting me now is how transiting Jupiter has been more or less in opposition to transiting Chiron. That sense of “bigness” ought to be tempered, and I think Chiron highlights to us where we’ve got that constant wound-that-won’t-be-healed – the remaining expression of our fragmentation– confronting our sense of bigness (Jupiter), while also addressing separate aspects of self “fitting inside of a body” (Virgo) are themes.
Astrologers aren’t sure what sign to give Chiron’s rulership, but many agree on Virgo. Also many refer to Chiron as “Shamanic.” At present all these terms are a bit to vague to be relegated to the “precision” of “rulerships.” What we are still really dealing with is that Pisces/Virgo divide in need of union; or at least agreeing to disagree that “the big picture” and “details” cannot, and should not, be in competition! Also, craftsmanship and mastery can be limiting at certain levels in creation, and even hindering creation if the focus is narrowed too quickly! Sometimes Pisces saves us from being too “square and peg,” despite the fact that most egos love to marvel at a “Virgoan” masterpiece, my advice is don’t get there too early! Yes, there is such a thing!
One has to begin somewhere, though, and I think that Pisces at the South Node gives us some intelligence on the issue, and suggests: starting out vague is not only OKAY, it is necessary. When we talk about Jupiter, we are talking about the big picture – something that some with heavy Virgo tendencies – as Virgo is currently in Jupiter, find challenging to allow.
For me personally, I have natal Jupiter in Virgo, so gestalt thinking doesn’t bother me, unless it does. From experience, and from art lessons, the vague, simply, just comes first. The details come later. First, bring the stuff out of you, then improve upon it all later with fine-tuning, interaction, building, etc.
Finally, for me personally, there’s something about this lunation for me that has to do with endings. There’s a big change, and release of the old perceptions. Pisces is an ‘self-undoing’ sign, and ruler of the 12th house. Pisces is where the current S. Node of the moon presents. The surrender to surrender – the final white flag. ::chuckles::
There’s a deep sense of peace and rest in this allowing of old perspectives, traditions, and the changing of an era in my family. I’m feeling a lot of gratitude for what has come before us… even the vagueness of this particular written article. I’m surrendering to its mixed pronouns and the challenged adjectives and nouns, which seek for more clarity to be “presentable.” I enjoy each moment I get to dance in public with symbols. So, thank you, dear reader. Everything is comfortably unfinished herein.
All my very best wishes for New Moon in Aquarius – and of course for the Fire Monkey New Year! I have put out a few red envelope gifts for my unsuspecting friends, and even friends I may one day soon meet. ❤
That said, I’ve had a lot of new followers joining up lately, and I want to give you all a big, warm welcome hug! Come in, come in, and let us have some tea. We can share our flowers, our petals, and whatever we’ve brought with us from our journeys. Will stack plenty of wood by the fire, and focus on growing more trees.
