A reawakening is afoot and the New Moon in Aquarius 20° 41’ on 9th at 2:59 pm
this week is at the foundation of that rebirthing. It isn’t a rebirth in the traditional spiritual sense, where you go through the dark night in order to find the nugget of the soul, this is more of a reawakening of the creative life force within that may have been dormant for some time. If you have been feeling dull, drab, boring or humdrum in any area of your life, this is the week to bring new life and excitement by blasting away the cobwebs in your mind. Aquarius brings bright insights and shocking awareness, opening up new neuropathways which have become over used and played out. This New Moon will bring much needed life in places that feel as stale as an overtold dad joke because the New Moon also makes a distinct aspect to Uranus in Taurus. Due to the nature of the aspect between the New Moon and Uranus, we might try to be proactive in this change rather than resistant because whenever change is afoot and we hunker down even harder, resisting the inevitable, then the harder and more painful it becomes. Loosen the reigns and let the electrical insights flash through your being to elevate your awareness to new levels.
There are quite a few major astrological aspects happening throughout the week aside from the radical New Moon in Aquarius:
Mercury conjunct Pluto
Biannual Sun square Uranus
Mercury square Jupiter
Mercury and Uranus are the star players of the week and these two planets are the directors of the mind and collective imagination. At the very beginning of the week, Mercury and Pluto make contact forcing our perceptions to go through a major wakeup call and begin a new process of understanding. Whatever we have been holding onto regarding our limited belief systems will need to be reevaluated and purged through a more future-oriented lens. This can look like letting go of an old storyline that you have been telling yourself for years and years around your relationships with friends and other groups of people. Let go of any bias or preconceived notions of how or who other people are within a certain group dynamic and you will see your mind expanding in new arenas of acceptance. Not just your fellow human but also for parts of yourself that you may be rejecting.
The Sun square Uranus also brings up how we identify and connect within our groups of friends and the collective. Because social media is such an integrated part of human nature at this point, we can’t ignore that there will be some realizations and understandings of where you stand with social media and how you would like to connect with others moving forward. Maybe you decide that you will begin calling people on the phone more often than dming them on social media or that you would like to see new forms of connection amongst your friends and you take the initiatory steps towards cultivating that new way of relating. Either way, the Sun square Uranus always brings in a greater ability to see oneself amongst the crowd in a way that is enlightening and impactful.
We are anxious to overcome hurdles within our relationships and to squash issues and situations once and for all. Venus and Chiron meet up to create a dynamic situation where we have to adjust our expectations of the people that we love. We may be more able to see someone’s limitations and have to push through any upset in order to access empathy for them and the situation. Pluto and Mercury are linked today, eliminating old ideologies that have remained stagnant and time wasters. This is the day to be very mindful of the thoughts that you tell yourself and to not fully identify with them as truth because the Pluto is acting as an enema of the mind and flushing out the toxic waste.

Today we are conscious of what parts of our ego need to change in order to feel more fulfilled within our loving relationships. The Moon enters Capricorn today, stationing our emotional realms into the concrete and true. We may be feeling more rigid in our expressions compared to yesterday and wanting more structure in order to feel comfortable approaching new circumstances. There is an ego sensitivity today that is being brought up with the Moon in Cap and the Sun placement, try to not take things too personally.

There can be some very interesting information that comes our way that will help us to make clear decisions in what direction to go in. Today is the time to make those radical adjustments in relationships for the purpose of a greater future. It is also a great day to make changes to diet, but especially with finances. A great new idea or opportunity can come through unexpectedly, either in the form of a business contract, relationship or idea that will help to build up confidence in the financial realm.

Moon enters Aquarius and initiates the New Moon energies. We may be feeling a bit internal, recluse and just needing time alone. The Moon conjuncts Pluto and can put us in a little bit of an existential tail spin. Don’t worry, this is just a part of the process for letting go and starting anew. Surrender to the tides and let yourself feel everything that your body is trying to tell you. The nervous system may be activated today as well and so making sure to comfort yourself in ways that feel nurturing and safe is of high importance.

A good journal prompt for the New Moon in Aquarius is to ask yourself whether you have been a good friend to yourself or not. If you feel that you haven’t been a good friend to yourself then this is a great time to question why you are a better friend to others than you are to you. See where you can show up for yourself more often and make a pledge to enact the same kindness and compassion that you show to others to your inner self.

The Moon moves into Pisces and we are now at the point of assimilating all of the New Moon themes that had come up for us over the last couple of days. We may be getting mixed messages from outside ourselves, so be very wary of news, media and any other collective jibber-jabber that doesn’t feed the soul – if that is at all possible. If that is not possible, try to be discerning with your energy and protect your psyche from extremism. The Moon in Pisces makes us all a little bit more susceptible to the collective influences and our sensitivities are heightened. This may also be a good day to explore new areas of belief through other religious practices and systems that can help bring some comfort and ease.
Moon > Pisces at 5:42 am, conjunct Saturn, sextile Jupiter, Mercury square Jupiter.
Today is a mild day energetically, especially compared to the last few days. Let yourself flow and bask in the Venusian and Neptunian realms of art and inspiration. A pleasant day for recalibration, grounding and cup-refilling.
Moon sextile Uranus, sextile Venus, conjunct Neptune.
