New Moon at 0-1 Aquarius: Initation and Vision. Dreams and Intentions. The Collective. Preparing for launch.
Hello friends and welcome to the first New Moon of 2015! This new moon in the “1” month of the year always has a certain quality of heightened potential and possibility, this year even more so. This is also the third new moon in a row (since November, 2014) at 0-1 degrees of the sign which gives it a powerful initiatory quality, setting the stage for the next moon cycle ahead and even further out than that.
The Tarot symbol for Zero is “The Fool” which is also a great image for initation, trust and setting out on a new path. The Fool has only a and a dog as a companion as s/he sets out into a new, unexplored world. This “8” Universal Year in the numerology takes us even more deeply into the Aquarian Age so this big of dose of Aquarian energy is certainly significant and has tremendous potential.
One theme I spoke about in the First Quarter Report (see the Cosmic Keys blogs area of my site,) is the issue of breaking out of the “box” of our own limited thinking; both about ourselves and others. In the first three months of this year we will be given a tangible opportunity to look into our own “view,” and areas of limitation and illusion. Aquarius energy allows us to rise higher and see the bigger picture of things which certainly can be helpful.
Positive Application: Healthy detachment. Seeing the bigger picture. Genius. Freedom. Honoring uniqueness. Releasing personal constraints.
Shadow potential: Detachment at a Vulcan-like level. Freedom at the expense of others. Rebellion for its own sake.
Another aspect of this new moon that has been showing itself quite clearly is the aspect of POWER, namely the loss of it on a personal level to people or events of the past. A simple word for that may be a “grudge.” A grudge though it can be buried and not take up much space in our daily consciousness can actually be siphoning off quite a bit of energy which can manifest in a loss of joy and presence.
When you base your own happiness on the workings of your own internal universe, it lets others “off the hook.” This is not to say to condone or ignore the misgivings or unconscious actions of others, but they will not longer disturb your own inner kingdom. What if these very people were here for the purpose of helping you develop the pearl that is your own soul? This is what is meant to be the King or Queen of your own domain. There is no better time to embody this truth. ~ Cosmic Love: Keys for the Path of Light, page 83
The Sabian Symbol for this new moon is Aquarius 1: An Old Adobe Mission In California. The indications of this being: spiritual retreats in nature, the Brother/Sisterhood and structures that protect and support spiritual growth.
Interestingly our next New Moon will be at 29 degrees of Aquarius which though it is not a classic “Blue Moon” because it falls in a different month, it still has some of that unique magic attributed to it. The Sabian Symbol happens to be one of my favorites: A Butterfly Emerging From A Chrysalis. This taking place right before the entry of Sun in Pisces is significant also. Pisces is often a time of karmic “ripening” and can have its challenges emotionally and spiritually. So we start our current moon cycle with pure potential and by the time we get to our next new moon our current transformation for this particular cycle is complete.
The Cosmic Tune is “Got Nuffin” by Spoon, because we’ve got nothing to lose but shadows, hangups and patterns that are no longer productive.
Happy New Moon friends and remember to keep it Cosmic!
NOTE: The New Moon in Aquarius is 1/20/15 at 5:14 am PST/8:14 am EST.
