Astrology Article: An Abundance of Inspiration

Our Aquarian New Moon brings a high degree of inspiration along with an increased desire to fully express what inspires you. This article explores the best ways to access this inspiration and ideas for how to express your inspiration and take action in ways which support your personal growth.

Will Power and Momentum

This month’s astrology is offering you success in areas of your life where you may have struggled in the past.

Currently, Pluto is conjunct Venus, both are in opposition to Jupiter which is supporting the Moon’s energy for self-expression in new ways. In other words, there is a strong pull to transcend your current circumstances through new inspired activity.

This “pull” or “desire” to leave behind the old and embrace something new provides extra momentum you can tap into. The easiest way to tap into this extra momentum is through your own will power. There is an increased ease in accessing your own will power for positive changes during this Lunar month. In other words, you can definitely use your “extra will power” to propel you into inspired action.

Don’t just “think” about this – it’s necessary to take action. In order to access the type of success the Moon is offering, it’s necessary to do more than think about success, you must act on any desires you’re feeling.

Innovation and Creativity

What inspires you? The Aquarius New Moon has the potential of getting you in touch with what inspires you, but it’s particular degree (11°) in Aquarius also requires an openness on your part to receive it.

The archetype of Aquarius is often illustrated as a “Water Bearer.” In this depiction, the water is usually flowing out and downward from an urn.

This Aquarian symbolism has confused many into thinking that Aquarius is a water sign, emphasizing feelings, but Aquarius is in fact an air sign, emphasizing new ideas and innovation. This is innovation that helps you come to a new level of mastery in the world.

To support this process, Aquarian energy flows “downward” as inspiration and creative power. It also flows “upward” with an open mind and a desire for something better. Mental clarity and an openness to guidance from above is what allows for the genius and innovation typically associated with the energy of Aquarius.

New Moon Manifesting for the New Year

To access great inspiration this month, start with an open mind.

Ask your Higher-self for guidance, look around to see where there’s a need for something better. Hold the awareness that all of the humanity is reaching upward for guidance. It’s the same quality of energy that also pushes you toward wanting to experiencing higher levels of consciousness. Holding this awareness makes it easier to access the powerful Uranian energy within Aquarius.

Accessing the brilliance of the planet Uranus, which is the ruler of Aquarius, provides a extra connection to your guidance and your Higher-self. Uranus helps you to see beyond the confines of 3D reality.

Once you have accessed a little inspiration, use your mind to help you figure out how to express it. Think of new ways, or innovative ways, to chance your circumstance into something better. New inventions aren’t the only forms of inspiration, but innovation is as it taps into the brilliance and higher guidance available through Uranus.

Moonrise Jan Full Moon 2014

Current Lunar Cycle

The Full Moon illuminates and activates whatever was released with the manifesting wave of New Moon energy two weeks ago. In the coming two weeks look for ways to celebrate and take inspired action, especially from whatever you have embraced or experienced since the New Moon. Be patient with challenges that emerge in the coming days, recognizing that they are also a necessary part of your expansion.

Astrology Article: How to Secure the Resources You Need

There’s an abundance of inspiration and resources available for you to use now that the Moon has reached its full phase in the Zodiac sign of Cancer. As you begin to integrate these Full Moon energies you’ll have the opportunity to realize how to better establish yourself in your life path. You may also notice your attention naturally beginning to shift toward acquiring the education or knowledge needed to establish yourself in a more fulfilling way. This feeling is natural and directly related to our current Full Moon energies.

How to Take Advantage of this Month’s Full Moon Energies

This month’s zodiac energy of Capricorn works naturally with your ability to secure resources for moving forward and achieving your goals and dreams. The current Cancer Moon is providing a way to expand your perspective on Charting Your Own Path in the World (the New Moon theme).

Energies are aligned to make it easy to integrate your emotions and intellect.

To successfully gather together these additional resources, you may need to focus on your ability to separate “what you need” on an emotional level, from “how to get it” on an intellectual level. It is important this month that your mental focus be  fully involved in the creative process..

The Moon is all about feeling, and there are times when “feeling” through your intellect can be a very effective strategy. This is one of those times. For the next two weeks, until the New Moon on Jan 30, the planet Mercury is activating your creativity through the ability to visualize symbols of inspiration in the mind. Without this mental inspiration to guide you, your desire for stability may work against you and hold you back from accessing the mental creativity needed to move forward on your life path.

The Need for Stability

Stability is a cornerstone of healthy expansion. We all need it. The most creative way to harness a greater sense of stability right now is through involving the strength of your mind (Mercury) to understand what type of information is needed to support resources, acquiring what you need in life. Resources can be money, things, or information.

With Mercury being extremely active in the mental realm, studying, learning, and observing are especially important types of resources available during the next two weeks. All of these gifts of Mercury will lead to your experience of greater stability.

Sources of Inspiration

With Mercury in the sign of Aquarius, look for inspiration in all of your authentic relationships.  Not just in your personal relationships, but in your connection to cultural leaders, and in any relationships where you can see new cultural developments occurring. For example, take note in individuals who are putting themselves on the line for a cause which inspires you. During this two week window, access creativity through inspiration from the individual or cause.

To help narrow down your sources of inspiration during this two week period, try identifying with others or with a group which shares your world view or who resonates with your path in the world. Use your intuition (Cancer Moon) to recognize that securing resources this month will be best accomplished through figuring out what you don’t know and then learning it.
