New Moon in Aquarius, 2/11/2021, 11:03 am, Portland, OR.
23.17 degrees, Sabian symbol: A man turning his back on his passions teaches deep wisdom from his experience
This new moon is part of a fixed air stellium in Aquarius composed of the Sun, Moon, Mercury retrograde, Venus, Jupiter, and Saturn with enough spread that the entire sign is activated from early to late degrees. It is Aquarian season with a bang, opening channels to flashes of intuition, sudden insights, a heightened ability to recognize patterns, and a creative urge to communicate, spread ideas, and connect with genius—your own and the spirit of the moment. It is serendipity’s stage and the background scrim sparkles in a rare way.
Other than the Sun and Moon, the closest conjunction within the stellium is Venus with Jupiter. This generous pairing invites big attraction, big love, big money, and inflation of art markets. As my first yoga teacher used to say, this should feel good. But it won’t all be strawberry kisses. Thorns live in this rosebush, too.
Uranus is squaring Saturn, triggering an ancient conflict between tradition and radicalization, old and new, society and utopia, container and chaos, history and time. This rough dancing is social, generational, political, and sets the tone for fashion trends and tastemakers.
The universe is threading the needle with an opportunity right now: Uranus in Taurus trines the asteroid Opportunity in Capricorn. Both Opportunity and Uranus sextile Abundantia (Abundance). Abundantia is in Pisces.
Piscean abundance is the stuff dreams are made of but make no mistake: this won't be spun sugar. With the goat and bull involved, you can count on real value. These earthy beasties facilitate materialization. This is about making dreams come true. The thing about this opportunity is this: you will not have been planning for it. What is not planned for sometimes goes unseen.
Be on the lookout for SURPRISE OPPORTUNITY. It opens a channel to ABUNDANCE.
The sky is dominated by fixed energy in air and earth. It is hard not to mention the notion of stubbornness with this sky, but stubbornness can be a tool in your infinite toolbox. It can be powerful to stand firm, be consistent, and carry a project, or an ideal, through to completion.
Productive social thinking is encouraged during this time. Stubbornly hold space for Otherness, for outsiders, for aliens, for the entire spectrum of light and being. This is advocacy energy. Fight for humanity with humanity.
