In the dark of this Aquarius New Moon, we are called to plant the seeds of our revelations. The ones that maybe you’ve not dared to tell people or share with others, the ones that–if given voice, structure, and a platform–might actually be brilliant!
And if they’re not for everyone, so be it.
When a revelation arrives fully blown in our minds, it’s as if a light bulb has snapped on, illuminating instantly what before was completely hidden—or in the dark.
Possibility is born through revelation. And revelation hits when it hits–which is to say, often unexpectedly.
Our job is simply to recognize it when it does hit.
Once I Was Blind But Now I See
Seeds of advancement, seeds of change…seeds of allowing the ideas that arrive “a priori” into the mind to be tested and found possible.
At this Aquarius New Moon we’re going to be asked to test our aha! moments out in real life. Up until that aha! eureka! moment we weren’t 100% sure that our hypothesis or postulate was provable.
When we allow ourselves to think outside the box, to not get bogged down by our fears, our prejudices, our insecurities, think what life would be like!
What if we all had faith in our beliefs to the point where we are unafraid to express our differences?
If we poo-poo, nay say, or doubt it away, how can we ever know if these revelations can stand the test of time when put to the test?
So in the dark of this Aquarius New Moon, plant the seeds of these revelations.
Aquarian energy is about the tribe, the group, and–by extension– the community. It’s also about our friends, and our hopes, dreams, & wishes.
How can we have hopes, dreams, and wishes if they simply lie dormant, never to be struck by the spark of lightning or the flicker of a match? As that’s what’s needed to bring these ideas, hopes, dreams to life–into their full blown glory, into a raging fire.
“High” Mars Energy Vs. “Low” Mars Energy
Mars squaring this Aquarius New Moon (when the Sun and the Moon meet up in the sky and set the stage for the tone of the next two weeks until the Full Moon occurs and she once again begins to wane in preparation for the next New Moon) provides its energy with extra oomph!
Our hearts and minds are now in alignment because the two luminaries are together at this precise moment of the Aquarius New Moon in the sky. This helps us give birth to the impetus we have behind our ideas, projects, philosophies, etc.
So we must push past the frustration in which Mars square this Aquarius New Moon may result, without succumbing to it. Rather let’s use this energy and put the wind behind our sails in order to benefit most from it…
We must try to use the unifying strength of being on the same continuum–both mentally & emotionally, ego & soul, mind & heart–so that we may lift the brightness of our ideas (illuminated under that revelatory flash of lightning!) into something real, manifest, concrete, and capable of lasting.
Using Mars energy in a way that accentuates and defines the “high” side of Mars–as motivation, ambition, assertion–rather than the “low” side of Mars—aggression, uber-sexuality, and violence–can only work in our favor now…
So, hold your torches high. If they are for the purpose of lighting your way, and the way of others–and not to harm, hurt, cheat, or in any other way use this martial energy negatively–they may be used to galvanize—to forge in steel, so to speak—these reflationary & revolutionary ideas in order to manifest them.
Write that article, work on that book manuscript, create that software, paint that painting, sing that song, dance that dance, enjoy, and most of all, do it in your own unique way…because individual expression is part of the Aquarian archetype as long as the motive is high-minded and in the best interests of the community or the world or humankind at large..
So, what is our idea and how do we make it manifest?
Remember that Aquarius is not only ruled by the planet Uranus in modern astrology, but traditionally by the planet Saturn, which represents structure within the group.
When we utilize both sides of the archetypal meaning of the sign of Aquarius we have the capability to not only recognize these ideas that arrive whole into our brains, but we find a way to concretize them by bringing them down to earth and actually testing them within the group.
Warning: It is of course possible for those of a distinct Aquarian nature to go a little too far.
Aquarius is an air sign—hence rational, thoughtful, objective–capable on the negative side of the spectrum of becoming too fixed in its ideas.
So when one who carries an abundance of Aquarius energy believes she has truth with a capital “T” I wholeheartedly recommend that she take a step back, particularly on the eve of this Aquarius New Moon, and redefine for herself the who, what, where, how, and when’s of her conclusions.
Aquarius is also a fixed sign, so expressing your ideas with conviction is all well and good. Just make sure you put your hypothesis to the test and that it indeed is capable of surviving this test not only to benefit YOU but to make life better for us all…
