Snowy Owl had been invited to visit the Council of Twelve so she would not be here for this New Moon celebration. In the past Shooting Star would have felt fearful and very alone when her sister was away but now she was happy to be the only one to receive Sister Moon’s message. She felt honoured that Great Mystery believed in her and the ability she had to talk with the Starry Ones and the Animals and deliver their messages.
On this New Moon day the young woman awoke before Grandfather Sun had risen. She wanted to visit the Otters, her Totem guides, before going to the Star Temple to receive the message for this New Moon cycle. As she made her way down to the river the eastern horizon was filled with pinks and golds as Grandfather Sun made his appearance. This was going to be a beautiful winter day here in the North Country.
When she reached the river bank a tall young man was there watching the Otters guide the Salmon Tribe up the natural dam in the river. He turned to her and she realized it was Runs With The Salmon, her friend from the other side of Turtle Island. “The Otters told me this New Moon is one of co-operation and support” he said “that is why they are helping the Salmon Tribe reach their destination to create new life. They understand that nothing in the Universe is standing alone. All is intertwined. By helping the Salmon they are also helping themselves.” It was then Shooting Star realized her friend could also speak with the Animals and hear their messages. The bond they shared just grew stronger. She thanked the Otters for showing her this.
The two friends sat on rocks on the river bank watching the Otters continue to guide the Salmon Tribe on their journey home to create new life. Then they realized they needed to go to the Star Temple to hear Sister Moon’s message. But as they stood up to hurry to the Star Temple they heard Sister Moon’s voice. “No need to leave where you are. When you are in tune with the Universe you can always hear the messages wherever you are. The Otters understand that even though Salmon is a food source for them in the physical world in the world of spirit they are interconnected. By helping Salmon on the journey to creating new life it ensures that both tribes will be sustained. All life is intertwined.”
Sister Moon continued “Eons of time ago Creator and Great Mystery were looking for a place in the Universe to experience the compassionate heart. The Earth Mother cried out ‘pick me, pick me’ and so they did. At first they experimented with the dinosaurs. But that species exhibited a need to dominate and control each other. Not what Creator and Great Mystery had in mind so when the dinosaurs became instinct Humans were created to express love and compassion. In the far away time this a lesson still to be learned. Some two leggeds are following the path of love and compassion but many, many more are choosing dominance, control and conflict. This has to change to co-operation and support for all. That is what this New Moon cycle is about. To recognize all is intertwined and family in the eyes of Creator and Great Mystery. Each human is unique and special but when joined with others Love is the Guiding Light. Go now my friends and share this message so the Compassionate Heart is awakened in all before it is too late.”
Aquarius is the sign of friendship, group associations, and the collective consciousness. It is the sign of the individual, the innovator, the visionary. It rules Astrology. But it is also the intellectual, the scientist, and the inventor. In my opinion it is the most multidimensional sign of the Zodiac. The key phrase for Aquarius is: I KNOW. It is the sign associated with the Third Eye and seeing into the unseen world. The “I know” is the psychic ability Aquarius has. We all have Aquarius somewhere in our Natal Mandala so we all can tap into that ability. This New Moon is asking us to see a future where the Compassionate Heart is awakened in all humans and we start treating each other, and all the Earth Mother’s Kingdoms, with Loving Kindness.
The planetary dance at this Aquarius New Moon (19 degrees Aquarius) is offering us the opportunity to choose harmony. The planetary ruler is Uranus at 17 degrees Aries travelling with the Asteroid Vesta at 18 degrees Aries (being your Authentic Self). They are sextile (ease and opportunity) the Sun/Moon (being centered in the Compassionate Heart) and trine the Earth at 19 degrees Leo (inner strength and courage to be your Authentic Self). They are also trine (ease and harmony) Saturn at 14 degrees Sagittarius (building a strong spiritual foundation). They are also semi-sextile (being in tune with possibilities) Chiron at 19 degrees Pisces (healing the world wound) which is also semi-sextile the Sun/Moon (the Compassionate Heart). The Sun/Moon is also semi-sextile Pluto at 16 degrees Capricorn, Venus at 19 degrees Capricorn, and Mercury at 23 degrees Capricorn (focusing on your Soul Purpose to help heal the world). Lots of opportunities to choose harmony.
But there is also dis-harmony at this planetary dance if that is what you wish to choose. Mars at 18 degrees Scorpio is in a T SQUARE (feeling backed into a corner) with the Sun/Moon in Aquarius and the Earth in Leo. The shadow side of Mars in Scorpio is the controller and manipulator. He does not like being backed into a corner and will fight and destroy what he perceives to be trying to control him. He is also inconjunct (adjustment and letting go) Uranus and Vesta in Aries (unexpected loss of personal power). They in turn are square (motivation for change) Pluto, Venus and Mercury in Capricorn (transformation and embracing personal power in the world). Squares ask us to find new ways of doing things. Some people need challenges to break free from old patterns and behaviours and the Universe is providing that with these planetary interactions.
But Great Mystery is kind and caring. The positive side of Mars in Scorpio is the healer and transformer. He is working with Snake Medicine, shedding the old. He is sextile (ease of opportunity) Pluto, Venus, and Mercury in Capricorn (transformation and focus on our Soul Purpose Path) and trine (ease and flow) Chiron in Pisces (healing our own wounds and the world wound). He is also sextile (ease and harmony) Jupiter at 21 degrees Virgo and the North Node at 22 degrees Virgo (the Rainbow Bridge of Healing into Wholeness) and they are trine (ease and flow) Pluto, Venus, and Mercury in Capricorn (Soul Purpose). So if you are choosing challenge and conflict you need to ask your ego why? It is your personality choosing that, not your Spirit. This New Moon is the opportunity to set yourself free.
Our Animal Totem guide for this Aquarius New Moon is Otter, companionship, curiosity and joyful sharing. For the Earth in Leo it is Salmon, courage and determination to create the new. For the Sun/Moon in Aquarius the Clan Mother is Wisdom Keeper. She is the guardian of honouring the truth in all things. She is the keeper of the Stone People and their wisdom. She also teaches us to honour each person’s Sacred Point of View. She is the keeper of Sacred Traditions and their wisdom. The Clan Mother who guides us for the Earth in Leo is She Who Heals. She is the guardian of serving the truth, the keeper of the healing arts, and all rites of passage. She guides us through the experiences of death and rebirth. We use “death” here as the process of letting go what no longer serves us so we can create the new. You can find more insight about these Clan Mother guides in The 13 Original Clan Mothers or Earth Medicine both by Jamie Sams.
Leo and Aquarius are found on the Tarot Constellation of Strength; the principle of courage and self-esteem. The theme is courage of your convictions and discovering your inner strength for Leo and courage to be yourself and connecting to Source for Aquarius. In The Tarot the sign of Leo is The Strength card and the sign of Aquarius is The Star.
This Aquarius New Moon is active on the 5th Ray of Knowledge and Healing. The Archangels who guide us are Raphael, the shinning one who heals, and Mary, Divine unconditional love. The Earth in Leo also activates the 1st Ray of Divine Will and Power with Archangels Michael, protector and spiritual guide, and Faith, trust and belief in self, as our guides. For anyone interested in The Ageless Wisdom Teachings (the Rays) I recommend Soul-Centered Astrology: A key to your expanding self by Alan Oken.
My wish for everyone is for you to embrace the gift this powerful New Moon in Aquarius is offering, to live in your compassionate heart center with Loving Kindness for all, especially yourself.
This is also the beginning of the Chinese New Year of the Fire Monkey. The year of the Monkey is symbolic of intelligence, enthusiastic curiosity, and to be a free spirit. This New Moon is the opportunity, as we said, to set yourself free.
