The New Moon in 27° Aquarius 08’ is happening the 15th of January 2018 at 2:06 PM (CET +1:00) or 8:00 AM (EST -5:00).
And with the Sun-Moon conjoined with Mercury in Aquarius we begin a New Lunation Cycle. This time more liberating and more associated with our true nature as individuals. This time fresher than before, and loaded with a lot of dynamism to put our creative ideas and potential into real concrete action out there in the world.
In addition, there is a partial solar eclipse on this day, as a continuation of the bombastic eclipse of the past Full Moon in Leo. A continuation of our mission in this world, of our evolution as individuals. What we discover now about ourselves, will come into fruition in the next Full Moon in Virgo.
Let us welcome the New Moon.
Footprints are walked memories;
molded cerebral impressions
of traced tracks—telling
tinted stories of freedom’s journeys;
like running rivers between banks
leaving trailing residues of liberation.
tell tall towering tales
of those who’ve passed this way.
May the Most High
let mine tell tall tales
of the jubilee journey jogged
as I passed this way.
And may my marvelous ones walk
proudly in the depths of my footprints.
The element for this Lunation is fixed air, or condensed mental ideas and capabilities. But this condensation of mental power represented by Aquarius is higher than our normal mind functions and at the same time, deeper. It is about our true calling and potential put into concrete actions in the outer world, for ourselves and our community.
It can be indeed, quite a radical time, in which our inherent creativity or inventiveness as individuals just wants to pour, no matter what the status quo or the external authority might think. It can be a rebellious time in which we just go out our pure flow, passing over all obstacles.
Now, creativity itself does not mean only art. Creativity is the ability to create something new and special. It can be something physical, or it can be an action. It can be a product or it can be a service. It can be an object or it can be a way to communicate. It can be an idea, or it can be the manifestation of this idea and how it comes to manifestation. It is something we create by making use of our mental, intuitive and emotional faculties (our imagination).
It can be quite an authentic time in which we come up with new ideas, new solutions, and new powers that we never thought we had.
It can also be a time in which some might experience mental flashes, sudden thoughts, sudden ideas, sudden memories, and penetrating feelings coming from within our soul’s memory. Synchronicity and manifestation can be a theme in people highly connected with their own essence of being and personal transformation.
Uranus is the ruler of Aquarius and he represents our higher mind. But Mercury is the lower octave of Uranus. Mercury is the vector associated with our lower mind, or the mind we just commonly use 24/7 for our daily activities, the mind that thinks, assimilates, evaluates, creates and questions. But also the mind that when overly abused and negatively exposed, becomes stressed and even distorted.
So with Uranus sextile to the Sun-Moon-Mercury conjunction, we see a cycle that activates our lower and higher mind, our capacity to consciously think and create, but our capacity to consciously think and create by pouring out the creative contents of the deepest party of our soul’s source.
So if we pay attention to the position of Uranus, the ruler of Aquarius,
The degree for the beginning of this Lunation is 27°, and the Sabian Symbol says:
“An ancient pottery bowl filled with fresh violets”
Dane Rudhyar in An Astrological Mandala: the Cycle of Transformations and its 360 Symbolic Phases, adds: “The importance of traditional skills and artistic values deeply rooted in man’s instinctive feelings as frames of reference for man’s most authentic emotions”.
This has to do with the liberating the flow of our deeply rooted authentic potential. The feelings, and the emotions that come are pure and authentic, because they have been brought by the liberation of our genuine identity as creative human beings active on this planet, active on our communities.
With Jupiter in Scorpio sextile Pluto in Capricorn, tuning with our true nature and identity as uniquely gifted human beings can shake the ways we see our world and our reality. In addition, this placement can bring a strong desire for achievement, but focus on the original benefit that this achievement will bring to our world.
With Venus in Pisces approximating Neptune, there is more love in the world than the one we experience with our closest persons. There is more love we can feel, give and receive from just the mere act of being presence and aware about the wonders of the world we live in.
Felling the world, reality and existence is a powerful way to experience the ultimate infinite love. Meditation techniques, observation of nature and even of people, can make us experience this warm genuine feeling. Every little action we do for the other is a manifestation of this ever-present love.
If you can, give a hand to someone who needs. For example, some actions we can do, is to talk with someone who needs to talk and give our support and wisdom; express our appreciation and love to a person we haven’t talked since a long time but who we value and esteem; surprise someone with a nice detail; help someone who you don’t know; work for a cause. Kindness brings charm, and charm brings good rewards.
Finally, during this time, try to join with like-minded people and friends. Share ideas and thoughts together. You might not notice, but every contact we have with other people, has a door to knowledge, and a door to more discovery.
Let the power of your mind manifest. Let the unique creative stream pour from within your soul. You can always feel this creative source that beats within you. You just have to let it speak.
