I was waiting to write about this Aquarius Ingress and about the New Moon at zero degrees of the 11th sign which is on Jan 20 @ 8:14 a.m. EST.
I received a channeled message about this New Moon. “I sing the body electric” which is a Walt Whitman poem- see below
Aquarius, means River of Stars. It is not a water but an Air sign. The symbol of the water-bearer is based on Hyas who was killed by wild beasts while fetching water from the river. His sisters make rain when they weep for him, hence the sign’s association with air.
Here is part of this epic poem;
“The man’s body is sacred and the woman’s body is sacred,
No matter who it is, it is sacred—is it the meanest one in the laborers’ gang?
Is it one of the dull-faced immigrants just landed on the wharf?
Each belongs here or anywhere just as much as the well-off, just as much as you,
Each has his or her place in the procession.
(All is a procession,
The universe is a procession with measured and perfect motion.)”
It sounds very Aquarian. Each one has their own place and are all equal. Don’t you think?
AQUARIUS’s message of Higher Consciousness, seeing the BIG PICTURE is looming large in the Stellar firmament these days for a number of reasons.
There is VERY RARE Karma to this New Moon.
Firstly, URANUS, the planetary ruler of Aquarius is in an exact conjunction to the SOUTH NODE of the Moon and still in a tight square to Pluto in Capricorn.
Conjunctions to the Nodes mark evolutionary karmic turning points.
In Aquarius these are initiations into new higher levels of consciousness and awareness.
The last time Uranus conjoined the South Node in Aries was June 2, 1847 at 17 degrees. Pluto was also in Aries at 26 degrees then. This coincides with the California Gold Rush in 1848.
How is this similar to now?
Samuel Colt sells his first revolver to the U.S. government. -guns
The Mexican American war ends.- Mexico/U.S. and foreign relations
The Birth of San Francisco as it changes its names from Yerba Buena.
Wars in New Zealand.
The American Medical Association is Founded.
U.S. issues its first postage stamps.
Liberia gains its independence. Symbol of independence for blacks in Africa.-still is happening.
Brigham Young establishes Salt Lake City in Utah.
The Vegetarian Society is formed in England.
The last time Pluto in Capricorn squared the South Node in Aries was on November 14, 1772 at 19 degrees. Uranus was in Taurus at 22 degrees at the time. This was during the American Revolutionary War. -Revolution is Aquarius’s middle name.
The last time Uranus was conjunct the South Node in Aries with Pluto squaring the South Node from Cancer was on Jan 17 1680 at 12 degrees. The Pluto placement is exactly opposite of where we are now.
The great comet of 1680 which was spectacularly bright. We are having Comet Lovejoy amongst many others.
The Pueblo Indians capture Santa Fe from the Spanish.
The Comedie-Francais is founded by decree by King Louis IV.
But the last time this particular alignment of Uranus with the South Node and Pluto in Capricorn hasn’t happened in more than 2,600 years! The rarity of this specific event suggests that this year could be one of the most pivotal times in human history.
The New Moon also squares the degree of the last Solar eclipse on October 23 2014 at Zero degrees + of Scorpio. This New moon amplifies the energies that were seeded then. Check out where that degree falls in your natal chart.
This New Moon features Mercury and Venus cheek to cheek in Aquarius with the Sun and Moon.
Mercury is spending twice as long as usual in Aquarius from Jan 4- March 12.
4 Aquarian planets is a quadruply Aquarian message of bringing in new ideas, new ways to communicate and understand other people’s’ ways of thinking. Freedom, thinking about the use of our new technologies, revolution, detachment and to remember to breathe. All air signs relate to breathing as well as mental, analytical and communications functions.
MERCURY is turning Retrograde on Jan 21 @ 17 degrees 05 minutes at 7:54 am PST/ 10:54 am EST. 3;54 pm GMT until February 11th @ 01 Aquarius.
Nothing to fear here. Mercury Retrograde’s are always GOOD medicine.
Rx, the symbol of Mercury Retro is a prescription to slow down, to re-analyze, revisit, review, relax, relate, renovate, you get the message.
You know the don’ts – Don’t buy anything new. Don’t start a new project. Don’t sign on the dotted line.
Do Double and triple check all communications and messages.
Saturn in Sagittarius in an applying square to Neptune in Pisces
Saturn in Sagittarius brings a sobering message combining hope and optimism. Neptune in Pisces asks us to open our emotions and surrender our egos. To reconnect with Bliss and in Oneness consciousness. Very much like Aquarius’s mission. We are bringing our highest intentions down to earth.
Aquarius is group mind.
Meditate this day and for the next three days. Set your intention to connect with all other minds and the cosmic collective mind. Feel your consciousness expand out and sense you’re connecting with others. We are here to support one another to raise our consciousness higher.
Aquarius rules faith healers. Have faith that you can heal yourself and that collectively we can heal the world. As each individual raises their vibration it affects everyone else for the better.
Create new intentions on a broad perspective. Draw out an 8 spoked wheel and outline what you want to create and how you can expand your vision and your effect on the collective this year.
2 AQUARIUS NEW MOON’S IN A ROW
The Next New Moon is also in Aquarius on Feb 18. It;s rare to have two consecutive New Moons in the same sign. In a month we can check into our AQUARIUS collective progress.
Please share widely.
