Where’s your p-p play passion portal to looovve. If the New Moon lunar cycle delivers one message during the next few weeks it’s along the axis of love and celebration. Of you, of romance, of play, of overcoming doubts and setting the authentic stage of your life. Now is the time. The grace of you is here, lean into your light and divine creative sparking - - desire, desert, delicious, delicacies. Make aspirations and voice the true longings and whims of you. The trine from Venus to Chiron sensitizes us to those in need and to the hesitation and fearfulness that may be present around particularly a sense of “I”. Even if we’re roaming like a lion king in dreams, a sense of confidence can glow and light up the world. Roam with confidence this New Moon beckons, surrender control of the external values that might obscure your heart’s truth. Leo celebrates the profound passion and play of heart and light. Emanate you to others, not because you need the confirmation, but because you are a glowing portal of royalty and an emissary of the Sun’s radiance and goodness. Relationships. Celebrate them. Surrender those which aren’t serving you so they may re-arise more glowing or nourishing. Chiron gives us the thoughtfulness and transcendent insight to learn about where we’ve kept our heart closed. Chiron now can turn the key to let love flow. Trust you. How and where is love and relationship ready to flow? Love doubt, love need, accept even your own narcissism, in a dance and proclamation of courage and command. And all this on repeat until the next Full Moon. We are setting the stage for the next phase of our lives with the eclipse season portal having closed. Mercury is also Direct, so anticipate sexy veggies in forward motion.
This New Moon make sure to set your pure heart and spirit’s content/intent for this lunar cycle and beyond. We start a fresh cycle, though we are in the process of structuring what we value, are willing to work for, and create. What is the sound of our spirit — can we raise the vibration of that? Listen, seek not answers, but elegance and literary taste - not of books - but of phenomena. As your perceive, may you delight. As you listen, may you surrender to a pure light. The ground beneath us is going to crack wherever we are lacking integrity. Check Capricorn’s house in your chart and let this New Moon’s light and intelligent energy uplift that journey. Gemini’s ability to sketch humor into anything is absolute. Let joy/play be your twin - the mischievous kind. And again, align with pure heart, love, intention - and then - stick to the schedule.
Take a courageous and open hearted step. The New Moon is the first of the astrological new year and inspires us to authentically individuate and trust our paths while respecting commitments, family, traditions, and the consequences we are reaping from the past. We don’t need to be limited by past dogma or structures however and Aries is a fiery reminder of our freedom to tread as we are inspired to. The presence of the Saturn and Pluto in Capricorn will be effecting us through the year and calls us to bring consciousness to especially the areas Capricorn influences in our birth charts. Intense reckonings are certain to occur so how can we practice discipline, patience, integrity, maturity, and wisdom? Our romantic hearts are likewise inspired and while we may sense our connectivity with and love for all beings, Capricorn insists on boundaries to protect our souls’ missions. This month we are coming out of the hazy yet healing lunar cycle that insisted we spend time in rest and recuperation mode. Consider that this month imagining is still influencing our mode, especially let the heart cleanse, forgive, and make aspirations. While we may be swept away into exalted ethereal states, the Aries Moon celebrates initiation and energy. Celebrate your life force, body, and presence this lunar cycle and begin again where fresh starts are in order. Visualize the peak with your heart, wear a red dress, dance, and blissfully indulge the butterflies of your perception. #newmooninaries
The lunar cycle this month inspires the dawn of vision. Look forward and wide, see what you intend to create alone and with others. Let it surprise you. Let events this month churn the depths of your heart so that your sight becomes authentic.
Aquarius has moonlit flashes of thought for the benefit of all, while a square between Mars and Pluto intensifies our anger, will, and passions. We are at once envisioning beauty while we must face who we truly are. Observe and let any shadows into the light of cosmic humor and loving absurdity. We need be light with whatever circumstances arise. We can play and delight. Powerful energies are showing up now. They can humble and transform us, if we allow, allow, allow, our hearts to break even. Heart must guide vision. Aquarius highlights community and family, belonging. Apply your cutting and off beat way of seeing things. While celebrating the group, realize true individuality. Things are not as they seem. Embrace or release whatever energies to spur you forward. See the big picture. Aquarius seeks an enlightened society but mindful of when this ideal becomes a hindrance to progress. The antidote it to #feelitall and work with others, without following blindly nor dismissing detachedly.
February 5th is also Losar Tibetan New Year / Shambhala Day. It’s the year of the Yin Earth Pig. The combo is said to be nurturing and strengthens our ties with community, health, and nourishment. Celebrate the feminine wisdom embodied and your receptivity.
This month is for dreaming. We are on the precipice of new beginnings and fast changes. If we tend towards confusion, it is time to learn about sensitivity. While this New Moon passionately encourages our faith in adventure and expansiveness, she is closely linked with imagination, divine sensitivity, and unconditional love. Draw on her creativity and vision to tend to the seeds of your work and relationships in 2019. We are connected with magic. Let your heart be full and your visions wild. As we prepare for the end of the year, indulge in dreams. Projects and passions can ignite. However, if the traditional symbol of Sagittarius is half human-half horse with bow and arrow, this lunar month we are half human-half deer. Our vision will not clear unless we are able to connect with tenderness and feeling. We need be willing to feel, everything, with courage and acceptance. As our sufferings and disappointments touch us, righteous fury transforms into imaginative and intuitive vision. If you are instead inclined towards escapism, numbness, or moralism of any kind, still yourself. Touch in with awareness of presence, have a love affair with, for example, the space around you in a sunlit room. Or the sensations in your pelvis and feet. Move with your hips. Dance out of any pattern of habitual victimhood. Your perception can reveal your sensitivity to you, and even re-acquaint you with your heart. Let the archer’s arrow shoot for awakening of unconditional and creative spirit. May we soften to our passion, instead of acting out impatiently or reactively. May our love be an invitation. You will access a depth of unexpected insight about yourself, your path, and intimacy. Mercury’s station direct in Scorpio in quincunx with Uranus in Aries, delivers these gifts.
We are here to surrender, learn, and explore. The cosmos delight in our dance and timeless spirit. We can offer ourselves for a larger purpose. We can feel into ourselves, and hidden pain. To give to this world, we need taste feeling. To learn from this world, we need to shape our beliefs from genuine experience.
As Hiroki Niizato so well describes, “When you have the courage to feel, your sensitivity will allow you to see things more clearly, rather than less. Your imagination turns into vision, aided by your intuitive understanding of all things”.
We are rich with boundless philosophical vision and the spirit of openness and adventure. Do not be swayed by emotionalism, instead greet her gifts with kindness and inquiry.
