This month’s New Moon Astrology is bringing all of us to a crossroad of sorts. It’s a crossroad where one’s personal life choices intersect with the direction in which the world is headed. This is an annual event that occurs each year at the Aquarius Moon, when our personal vision comes into alignment with the larger Aquarian potentials for change. The Aquarius Moon marks such a significant shift in consciousness that it is celebrated as the time of Chinese New Year.
Each of us holds a personal vision of a better tomorrow. The most significant question now, at this year’s Aquarius New Moon, is whether your vision for a better tomorrow will become fully activated when it reaches our New Moon tipping point. The more you’re able to connect with your internal feeling of power, the more you will be able to add your personalized contribution to the arena of a better future for us all.
Our Full Moon astrology has an unusual emphasis this month based on the natural conflict between the energies of Capricorn (Sun) and Cancer (Moon). When these two powerful zodiac energies collide, there is often a showdown between what’s best for the individual, and what’s best for the established order. This is the case with our current Cancer Full Moon.
The specific showdown this month is especially related to systems of political power within the establishment. What the individual needs for success in the world can oftentimes be at odds with those who make the rules, especially if those rules are for political gain and not the greater good. This is the classic conflict between the individual and collective, specifically that portion of the collective with agendas set by a ruling elite that isn’t in alignment with the greater good. When goals and agendas collide, the individual’s power can be squashed with the power of a co-opted collective.
This month’s New Moon Astrology is unusual in that each individual’s experience will be quite different. The reason for such a high degree of variability in our New Moon energies stems from a highly compact group of planets working together. In astrology terms, we call this planetary grouping a “stellium.”
Stelliums, with their nature of competing and diverse energies, are complex and as such are often inherently difficult to work with.
The overall signature of this stellium includes an underlying experience of happiness and joy. When looking closely at the pattern of current New Moon energies, two possible paths emerge. The first is a superficial and generalized response to this impulse of happiness, while the second is more complex and personal.
Our Full Moon astrology for the next two weeks holds a rare configuration referred to as a “Temple Pattern.” The temple pattern, as outlined in our current astrology chart, takes the shape of a building. The name comes from its ability to hold and distribute high frequency energies. With the Full Moon in Gemini, these frequencies will contribute to support for greater understanding and perspective in all areas of life.
This Full Moon temple pattern is the dominate signature for the next two weeks and sets the stage for a new level of experience and opportunity. This is the culmination and full expression of our New Moon theme for the month, releasing new insights into “the true nature of reality.”
