The Aquarius New Moon and Solar Eclipse at 27° Aquarius.
This New Moon in Aquarius takes place in a month where there is no Full Moon. We just had two Full Moon in January and there will be two Full Moons in March. A month with no Full Moon traditionally was sometimes referred to as a dark month, or a Black Moon.
The New Moon partial Solar Eclipse is at 27’08 Aquarius. Although Aquarius is an Air sign, she makes connections with Juno and Mercury. Juno is the ancient goddess of partnerships, love and commitments and Mercury is the planet that rules our mental realm, communication and thought process. This means for us that these areas will be highlight during this New Moon phase.
Lets back track and reflect the Lunar Eclipse that opened the portal on January 31st. Eclipses are in the sign of nodes. Typically Eclipses are always within 18.5 degrees of the node. The North Node aka the lunar eclipse and the South Node aka the solar eclipse. Node’s astrologically speaking are connected with karma and evolution and eclipses are all about change. We have and will feel the amplification of these energies this month. The North node last month, was in relation to our destined path of growth and evolution and now we have the partial eclipse in the South Node which is to do with our Karma and Karmic patterns.
Eclipse are great at illuminating where change and growth is needed and if we are off our path. It’s about rectifying our actions and doing what is needed to make things whole again. This can seem a burden to some in order to grow and evolve we must something let go of something and someone.To reorient ourselves this upheaval of situations and relationships in our lives is a necessity. To get a more in-depth look, you need to search in your personal natal chart for a deeper answer and a grasp of what these eclipses mean for you personally.
Although Aquarius is usually quite a detached Air sign when it comes to matters of the heart such as feelings, emotions and connections. This eclipse as I mentioned is tightly conjunct with both Juno and Mercury. Soulmates, love and communication will be brought o our attention. Also bringing into focus is not only our personal relationships but partnerships of all kinds romantic, committed, business, financial and otherwise.
Lets have a quick run down on the asteroid. Juno is the wife of Jupiter. Her and Venus share the theme of love and relations but as Venus is all about making connections and attractions , Juno is about soul mates committing to them. Juno is related to soul mates, marriage, long-term relationships and beauty. She is the patron mother of relationships and true love. The energy is feminine, soft and diplomatic.
With the Juno energy closely linked. Romantic relationships will be the main theme at this Eclipse. Yes, this means our romantic self and relationships will be up for review. You may deepen your connection to your special someone, or it can bring to surface that you are both at the highest place you two can journey to and that in order for you to move up you may have to move on.
With Mercury the planet known for ruling communication added into the mix, it is highly possible that this New Moon talk of love, loyalty, devotion, moving in with someone, making plans for the future, romantic holidays, travel and possibility of engagements and marriages will be on the cards. Especially as the New Moon’s energy radiates intensely for a few days, before and after.. Hello Valentines day!
Typically New Moons ignite new beginnings, are a starting point to make changes and manifest what we want to bring into fruition over the next lunar cycle. However, we need to remember that this New Moon is aligned with the South Node so in order to bring into our life our desires, we need to figure out what needs to end or be completed first in order for something new to take hold. With any change we need to remember that we need to work for it!
During this New Moon Eclipse the veil will be thin, our illusions will be lifted. This makes it an amazing time to really get to know yourself, seek out your authentic genuine self even if it makes you feel uncomfortable. This Aquarius New Moon Solar Eclipse carries a positive and loving energy that is going allow us to awaken to the fact that we are all connected, we all have similar needs and that we all need each other to thrive.
incorporate all the themes and energies I have mention into your New Moon wishes this month.I can assure you, you wont be disappointed! Nurture them and watch them blossom! Happy manifesting!
