If a man bestowed with a fart synonym for a surname can become president of the United States – what’s holding you back?
Could Donald have done us all a favour?
The New Moon will exact on 28th January at 10:06:57am here in Brisbane (AEST); bringing forth a potential new beginning in the area of your chart where 8degrees and 15seconds of Aquarius resides.
The Sabian Symbol for this degree is: “A Flag Is Seen Turning Into An Eagle” and it’s very in-keeping with the energy of Aquarius.
What flag are you waving and is it time to embody all the ideals and beliefs that you keep talking about?
We tap into a huge amount of personal power when we choose to be that which we aspire to.
Instead of just talking about it, which can lead to stagnant and frustrated energy and can bring on a sense of being the victim (disempowerment) and the feeling that we are being thwarted by life.
So, what is it that’s holding you back?
Fear of being different?…
… that you’ll suddenly be seen as a sponge cake short of a trifle?
Worry of others’ judgement, ridicule or jealousy?
Or maybe you’re keeping your inner innovator on lock down, because you fear the isolation that going it alone may mean when you literally have to stick your neck out above the crowd.
Perhaps you stifle your spontaneous quirkiness through shyness or a feeling of inadequacy …
… or perhaps you’re still living with a belief system that you inherited in childhood that being different is somehow wrong?
We all have Aquarius energy somewhere within our psyche and we all need to embrace our individuality if we are to truly feel whole …
… so go on!!, let your strange shine out and embrace your eccentric side 🙂
The Sabian Symbols for this New Moon seem very in-keeping with the political climate in America at the minute; especially with the quest degree of this symbol being :”A Man Who Had For A Time Become The Embodiment Of An Ideal Is Made To Realise That As A Person He Is Not This Ideal”.
Seriously, let that sentence sit for a while.
Read it again and think about it…
None of us are perfect and yes, we can be very quick to judge others for their foibles; especially those in the lime light.
But consider this for a minute – how much energy are you expending on the drama that is being emitted from the NEWS right now?
And… if you look at your own life – are you really the true embodiment of what you know you could be?
How about you turn off the TV, put down the Newspaper and stop letting yourself be distracted?
What are you not doing to honour your unique and separate self?
Where do you need to do more walking and less talking?
and where do you feel the need to break out right now and shake things up a little?
Aquarius is the sign of the humanitarian, the rebel and the progressive game changer, but as a fixed sign, it can also lend itself to rigidity.
We can get so caught up in our own ideas of what should be that we forget that not everyone is on the same page.
Astrology (also ruled by Aquarius) reminds us of that.
When we look at the variances in people’s energy fields (as indicated by their individual birth chart) it can really help with understanding the different journeys that we all walk.
I’m not one to watch the NEWS often, so I’m really no expert on politicians, but if history has taught us anything it’s that propaganda can be very real.
Therefore, I err on the side of caution and choose not to be overly judgemental about anyone whom I’ve not personally sat down with for ten minutes.
However, if a man bestowed with a fart synonym for a surname can become president of the United States, I say he’s done us all a favour
Seriously – the World is made up of many people and there will never be a one size fits all – because we are all so different!!
So, stop trying to be like everyone else and let yourself stand out from the crowd for once.
Strong Aquarian energy in a person can make that person appear aloof and emotionally-distant and with a Venus/Saturn Square in operation under this New Moon, you may feel like you need some space or, alternatively, that you’re being pushed out or excluded in some way.
Is it time for greater independence?
Saturn teaches us lessons and when he squares up to Venus we’re talking relationship lessons or perhaps financial ones.
Venus in Pisces wants romance, rose-tinted glasses and to merge with another – to literally dissolve into their essence.
It wants to lose all boundaries, to escape into a fantasy World, to be rescued and to avoid that dreaded ‘R’ word that Saturn does so well – ‘responsibility’.
Saturn teaches us limitation and reminds us that we exist in a material World.
In Sagittarius, he’s asking us to take responsibility for our own freedom, our personal beliefs and our individual growth; to not wait for some projection of an idealised politician to come and save us.
Saturn in Sagittarius wants us to work on bringing our own, personal vision to life so that we can live as an inspiration to others.
So that we can become the embodiment of the dream that Venus in Pisces has placed up on the pedestal.
Note that Aquarius is idealistic and individual, innovative and independent…
… All words that begin with ‘I’.
What can you bring to the group (to the society that you live in) as an Individual?
What does your unique imprint offer to the World and where can it Improve it?
The negative side of Saturn in Sagittarius can present as harshly judgemental and moralistic whereas Venus in Pisces is gentle, forgiving and compassionate.
Venus in Pisces can have a tendency to disappointment when disillusionment strikes and the beloved falls from the pedestal, but Saturn teaches that through commitment things can be worked through and evolved.
When these two energies form a difficult aspect it can be difficult to marry them, so be aware of where this dichotomy may be sitting with you and in your life right now.
