What better time to return to my blog than at a new Moon. And this is the SECOND new Moon in Aquarius. It’s time to remind you to prepare for the new year. The New Moon, a time of new beginnings, is February 18th. The Chinese New Year is February 19th. The astrological New Year (vernal equinox) is March 20th. Lots of “new” events in the next thirty days.
It’s a perfect time to energize the ‘now’ in our lives. Astrologically, the Sun & Moon are united; Venus & Mars are united. The emphasis on the yin/yang energy is strong. Also, this is the Chinese year of the wood goat, and Saturn, the goat, is in a “give a little” relationship with Mercury, the thinker. That is, Saturn is not asking you to give up your point of view. It’s asking you to be flexible enough to yield a little in the name of peace. This applies to all the activities that reflect our tendency to tighten our grip and hold our position at any cost – love, money, relationships, etc. The Sun/Moon-Venus/Mars combination is all about seeking balance and harmony to achieve joy.
During this lunar cycle you need to reassess the past 12 months. Take time to formulate resolutions that enhance and promote your physical, mental and emotional well-being. But, take your time.
Remember, at the new Moon the earth is dark. We get to see the stars. In short, we get to see the forest of heavenly lights. Time to contemplate the bigger picture. Formulate your dreams, hopes and wishes for the next cycle – habits/activities you want to end and those you want to add. Begin thinking about the new year you’ll create at the vernal equinox. If you have a dream board, look it over. It’ll soon be time to revitalize & update it. If you’ve never made one, go to my website, CyclesofLiving.com; click on the Article Archive tab in the right hand column and choose Your Dream Board.
Until next time.
