THE NEW MOON LAW OF ABUNDANCE is on JANUARY 20, 2015 8:14 AM EST at 00 degrees AQUARIUS 08 minutes
THE SIGN AQUARIUS: This is a fixed air sign. This is the sign of the rebel or the individualist. In Aquarius you approach life through your intellect. You break old molds, old concepts, and those things which have outgrown their usefulness, in every area of life. New ideas, brilliance, and new inventions show us a new way now. Aquarius is the sign of spiritual rebirth. Public affairs become more important, as there is an interest in the welfare of others in a social sense. People will tend to be very friendly, but impersonal. The house where Aquarius is in your chart is where you are encouraged not to conform. You are no longer limited by conventional boundaries; therefore, you are free to be different, to be inventive, and to be yourself. This is where you can be truly creative, truly unique, or contribute your utmost to humanitarian progress. You must dare to break away from established customs, to go one step further, and investigate the potentials of tomorrow.
Saturn and Uranus are the rulers of this New Moon. Uranus indicates the way in which a person’s urge for freedom and individuality is manifested. Saturn indicates our need for structure and boundaries. Uranus is at 12 degrees of Aries joined with the South Node of the Moon. This is not an invitation it is a demand that you bring out the best side of yourself in all current activities. Saturn also rules this lunation and Saturn is just beginning its journey through Sagittarius. This will open some doors and opportunities for the future. The only Planet in an earth sign at this time is Pluto. The Moon, Sun, Mercury and Venus are in Aquarius an air sign. These are energies that promote circulation with others. Uranus in Aries, Jupiter in Leo, and Saturn in Sagittarius are activating the fire signs. This brings enthusiasm and passion.
Mercury is stationary in Aquarius going retrograde on the 21st until February 11th. This could be a review and adjustment period so we don't jump too quickly. That brings me to Mars. Mars is the Planet of action. Mars is in the watery sign of Pisces keeping company with Neptune. It will be hard to get moving if you are not motivated from within. Will power alone will not do it. Also if you have any dependency on drugs or alcohol it is time to let that go. This New Moon is all about the freedom to be yourself. So, what is in the way needs to be released. It only makes you weaker. Celebrate what this New Moon brings you. Mercury retrograde will be a retrieval of what you thought you lost. Renewal!!
THE SABIAN SYMBOL: AN ADOBE MISSION This is a symbol of everlasting sustainment, and of the necessity for both an over-all orientation and an underlying stability in all personal existence. Implicit in the static symbolism is man's heritage of enduring ties which he must neither neglect nor underrate, and so a call on him t remember his own true state at all times. Here is emphasis on the unbroken continuity between the psychological and physical certainties of his being, and a reminder of their continuing value to him. The keyword is DURABILITY. When positive, the degree is effective breadth of vision and a respect compelling depth of character, and when negative, lack of ambition and blind adherence to superficialities.
