New Moon in Aquarius (11 Feb)

Tomorrow's New Moon in Aquarius (February 11th,12:05 pm MT) shares space with Mercury, Venus, Jupiter and Saturn. This is an extraordinary lineup that implies Big Changes and New Beginnings. Of the seven traditional planets only Mars is absent. In Taurus, Mars stands for the outsiders and those who have been abandoned, abused, neglected, oppressed and marginalized. All beings are part of our Earth community and we are asked to develop a cosmic consciousness of belonging.

Venus in Aquarius as choral director of the planetary line up asks us to harmonize for the betterment of the world. Aquarius is the sign of social reform, community, innovation, and solidarity.

Ask yourself: How can your story help shape a better society?

Mercury retrograde until Feb 20th asks us to reassess and fix what needs to be fixed before moving forward. When Mercury is retrograde we can't rely on “logic” or data. We have to pay attention to feelings and follow our intuition. At this time we continue to be of service to others and to our communities not necessarily with words, which may be misinterpreted, but via actions. This is "actions are louder than words" astrology. Mars squares Mercury (and in fact all the other planets in Aquarius) making this provocative energy that can easily lead to arguments and disputes.

Pallas at 21° degrees conjunct Sun and Moon asks us to be practical and apply wisdom in situations that may arise at this time.

Venus conjunct Jupiter at 12° Aquarius is a meeting between love and abundance, creativity and spiritual intelligence. An auspicious pairing that can be celebrated by giving thanks and making a donation to a charity. Remember to thank the Creator, preferred deities, Ascended Master or saints and then family and friends who are supportive. Best causes to give to on this day would be charities helping women, children, artists and educational projects.

Reality is shifting and we must transform ourselves. Ask yourself: What role do you intend to play in the New World?
