As they usually did before a Moon ceremony Snowy Owl and Shooting Star went to visit the Shaman’s Cave. He always gave them wonderful guidance and information that helped them prepare for the coming Lunation. As the sisters entered the Cave they felt his caring presence welcome them. The Shaman told them Sister Moon would partly cover Grandfather Sun at the time of the New Moon but they would not be able to see this meeting as it was happening in the extreme south of the Earth. It was much too far away for the sisters to travel and witness the meeting. But the Shaman told them Sister Moon had a very special message for them and he told them it was time for them to climb the path to the Star Temple and wait to receive that message.
When Snowy Owl and Shooting Star reached the Star Temple even though it was still winter in the North Country they felt the warm rays of Grandfather Sun. It was a welcome warmth and held a promise of new beginnings to come. As the sisters contemplated what those new beginnings might be Sister Moon began to speak. “You are right. This Moon cycle holds the promise of the new. It initiates a theme for the next five Moon cycles. It is time for all two leggeds to see in a new way. It is time to open the Inner Eye and know even though you are a separate and distinct individual you are also a Cosmic Being of Light that is interconnected with All That Is. It is time for all two leggeds to embrace the gifts of healing they carry and share those gifts with the world. It is time to release the illusion of separation and come together in a Love that unifies and supports the sacredness of all life.”
Snowy Owl and Shooting Star felt the inner connectedness to All That Is. They made a commitment to showing others the only way forward was to honor the Sacredness of All through Love.
This Aquarius New Moon has a feeling of “good vibrations”. Even though it is only a partial Eclipse it still influences our journey to July 12, 2018 when we have the next New Moon Eclipse in Cancer, the path of spiritual destiny. This Aquarius Eclipse is the integration of ourselves as individuals (the Sun) and our Cosmic Being-ness (the Moon). It is time to be our true selves in all we do and let our actions be guided by Cosmic Love.
Our Animal Totem guide for Aquarius is Otter, companionship and joyful sharing. The Earth is in Leo at this New Moon and her guide is Salmon, determination to reach our goals and create the new. (These Totems are reversed for the Southern Hemisphere but available to us all through the Sun/Moon and Earth connections). The Clan Mother who guides this New Moon in Aquarius is Wisdom Keeper. She is the Mother of Friendship, Planetary Unity, and Mutual Understanding. She teaches us to Honor the Truth. (The 13 Original Clan Mothers by Jamie Sams). Because this is a Solar Eclipse she guides us for the next 5 Moon cycles along with the other Clan Mothers for each coming New Moon. Human kind definitely needs to listen to the teachings of Wisdom Keeper.
The Tarot Constellation this Aquarius New Moon activates is Strength; Courage and Self Esteem. It is courage of your convictions, finding the inner strength to be your true self, and connecting to guidance from Source. It is about balancing the material plane with spiritual consciousness. (Who Are You In The Tarot by Mary K. Greer). This New Moon activates the 5th Ray of Concrete Knowledge and Healing. The Archangels who guide us are Raphael, the shinning one who heals, and Mary, love’s power. The Earth in Leo is 1st Ray, Divine Will and Power. The Archangels who guide us Earthlings are Michael, protector and spiritual destiny guide, and Faith, trust and belief in self.
This is a South Node Eclipse and asks us to release the past with love so we can move forward into the new. The energy in Aquarius (new consciousness) is ruled by Uranus at 25 degrees Aries (breaking through to the authentic self). Uranus is sextile (easy opportunities) the Goddess Hygeia at 24 degrees Aquarius (health and Energy Healing) Mercury at 25 degrees Aquarius (thinking outside the box) Juno at 26 degrees Aquarius (committed relationships including friendships) and the Sun/Moon at 27 degrees Aquarius (Cosmic Consciousness). They are all squared (finding new ways of doing things) by Jupiter at 22 degrees Scorpio (healing and releasing what no longer serves you). In turn Jupiter is sextile Pluto at 20 degrees Capricorn (transforming society) and trine Chiron at 26 degrees Pisces (healing the world wound).
There is another subtle pattern here. Saturn the traditional ruler of Aquarius is at 06 degrees Capricorn (building a strong foundation for personal empowerment) and he is sextile (easy opportunities) Venus at 06 degrees Pisces (compassionate love). Venus is travelling with Neptune at 13 degrees Pisces (illusion or illumination). They are squared (motivation for change) by Mars at 12 degrees Sagittarius (dogmatic thinking or spiritual vision) who is travelling with Vesta at 14 degrees Sagittarius (commitment to your spiritual path). Mars will be in that exact square to Neptune on Feb 17. The theme is what is true, what is not true, what was never true. And on Feb 25 Mars and Venus (relationship dynamics) enter their First Quarter Phase. The focus is make a decision, take action, and break free. This Aquarius New Moon has already set the issues of truth or illusion into action. It will be interesting to see what manifests.
In her book “Predictive Astrology; The Eagle and The Lark” Bernadette Brady gives us these insights about the theme of this Eclipse. “This family of Eclipses is concerned with ideas and their enthusiastic expression. If this eclipse affects your chart, you will be flooded with ideas or options. There may seem to be an element of haste, but if you can go with the new ideas, they will have positive outcomes.” Aquarius asks us to go with the flow.
And so New Moon blessings to all. The Chinese Lunar New Year begins tomorrow. It is the year of the Earth Dog. Strength, loyalty, and unconditional love.
