Though it is by mere minutes, today’s New Moon actually takes place in both Aquarius and in Pisces. By the time the Sun arrives in Pisces, the Moon is just ahead of it there, but at the exact time of their conjunction (which is what defines a New Moon) they both were still in Aquarius.
So this New Moon will have the combined influences of both of these signs, which according to Eric Francis at Planet waves, go together quite nicely
“ What is this telling us? Well, the implication is a seamless union of Aquarius and Pisces, two signs that benefit from one another’s presence and mutual awareness. That is handy — Aquarius is the sign of the water bearer and Pisces is the sign of water. Pisces has the vessel that it needs and Aquarius has the water to fill that vessel. This is an image of fulfillment, of contact, of completion.”
A New Moon is a seed time where the Sun and Moon enact what alchemists the ‘conjunctio’… the sacred marriage of masculine Yang energy (Sun) and feminine Yin energy (Moon). This energy radiates out into the coming month filling us with the energies of the sign this meeting occurs in.
With this New Moon in both Aquarius and Pisces our ideals (Aquarius) will get infused with inspiration (Pisces) and love. Keeping the dream alive and following your bliss are all part of this New Moon’s mandate.
Ok it may take a bit of time. Many of us have experienced delays during Mercury's Retrograde motion back through Aquarius, but it gave us a chance to rethink our plans and revision our intentions for 2015. Now Mercury is again moving slowly forward and as it gets back to its starting point things will begin to speed up. That plus next month we have an eclipse in Aries right on the Aries point (beginning of the zodiac) that will kickstart whatever it is you have been working on.
Till then , we can use this Aquarius/Pisces wave to carry us forward via our intuitive and creative processes. Part of the lesson is to relax and trust the flow. It may not be quite the time for full-on action, but the seeds are stirring underneath the frozen ground and soon we will be in the full thaw of spring.
Till then, set your intention, hold onto your vision and have faith that what is meant to be will be.
Here is the sabian symbol for 30 Aquarius:
Deeply rooted in the past of a very ancient culture, a spiritual brotherhood in which many individual minds are merged into the glowing light of a unanimous consciousness is revealed to one who has emerged successfully from his or her metamorphosis.
Sounds like a wake up call to me. Wouldn’t that be lovely!
