New Moon in Aquarius Jan 30, 2014
The New Moon of Jan 30th 2014 falls in the sign of Aquarius. All New Moons are about setting new intentions and planting seeds for the future. This is the second New Moon in the month of January (see the January 1st, 2014 New Moon Update), which means that 2014 begins with a double dose of energy for moving forward and creating new situations. Aquarius is the sign of the New Age, and “Evolution” is the theme. The symbol for Aquarius is a man (or woman) carrying the vessel of light, the Grail, which is being poured into human consciousness. Where has your inner quest led you? What are your dreams and your aspirations? Aquarius says: Don’t be afraid to think yourself out of the box; sometimes being truly free means leaving the herd mentality behind. Do you have the courage to become a “rebel with a cause”?
The ruler of the sign of Aquarius is the planet Uranus, the “Great Awakener”. It is time for us as individuals and as collective humanity to “wake up” and realize that there is more to life than the 3D Matrix tells us…..we are connected by threads of light to all matter in the universe. Aquarius is the sign of the group of “enlightened minds” working together to change the world. Where would you like to create a paradigm shift in your own life?
Take a deep breath and know that the Universal Mind speaks to everyone. Aquarius says that you are a channel of your own deepest truth; you just have to have the courage to listen! January 31 also begins the year of the Wood Horse in Chinese astrology signifying a year of fast action, unexpected events and quick decisions.
The Aquarian New Moon is an air sign (not water) which symbolizes intuition and perception. Aquarius is the sign of the progressive thinker, the bohemian artist, the political reformer… as well as the scientist, the astrologer, the computer whiz, and closet rebel. If you have the Moon in Aquarius, this is your personal full moon. Aquarians are usually very cool, calm and collected personalities, which make them very interesting to other people. They can also be great humanitarians working for a cause or philosophy, whether it is in the arts or sciences. (Famous Moon in Aquarius personalities: John Lennon, Russell Crowe, Lady Diana Spencer, JFK, Jar, Caroline Kennedy, Oprah Winfrey (Sun in Aquarius). Although they are “group minded” with a diverse array of friends, Aquarians often prefer to be alone. You can usually find them working alone, but in the midst of a crowded, bohemian coffee shop.
If you have any planets in early degrees of Leo or Aquarius in your birth chart, you will also be affected by this New Moon. The Moon in Aquarius heightens our intuitive abilities. It’s a great time for an astrology reading, reiki or energy work. You are more receptive to receiving (or giving) information on a body/mind/spirit level. Your inner radar is working at plus ten! Trust your inner voice at this time. We all have a soul purpose; an authentic Self, not what family, friends, or society have imprinted on us. Take a personal inventory; are you following your own path? We all have responsibilities and duties in life, but self – expression does not necessarily have to be stifled in order to take care of them. Voicing your opinion and taking a stand on something that you believe in can make a difference in the world around you. (Just be sure to allow others the same privilege).
Creativity comes in many forms. We don’t all have to be successful artists, but volunteering your time and energy to a worthy cause is a rather unique way to share your talents with others. In this age of technology, our thoughts and ideas can be transmitted globally in a matter of seconds; it is important to remember that “with knowledge comes power AND responsibility”. This New Moon is a great time to set goals for the future and to expand your vision. It is a time to break free of old limiting beliefs and breathe new life into our cells. The “zero” degree of both the luminaries can set you free from all pre-conceived limiting beliefs. You are the Fool in the Tarot deck fearlessly stepping into new territory…make a wish upon the Moon tonight…it just may come true!
Egyptian God Thoth Meditation:
In ancient Egypt, the god Thoth was associated with the Moon as well as Mercury. He was the god of wisdom, medicine, writing and all sacred knowledge. The Greeks knew him as Hermes and the Romans. Mercury. In Egypt, he was depicted as a tall man with the head of an ibis bird and holding a long reed pen (stylus) and scribe’s palette. He was considered a magician, and the author of the “Emerald Tablets” considered to hold the keys to all creation. During this New Moon, you may want to call on Thoth as a Guide to help you access your inner wisdom and creativity.
Light a white and/or yellow candle. If you have a particular crystal(s) for meditation, use it. Find a comfortable position where your body feels at ease. Close your eyes and begin to breathe deeply. Concentrate on a golden ball of energy floating above you, and encircling you from the soles of your feet to the top of your head. Continue breathing. Feel the golden spiral of energy spinning inside your heart chakra and filling your body from the inside out with a warm glow. As your body begins to feel lighter, you see the form of Thoth standing before you. You have now entered his Crystal Temple, which contains the Hall of Records. In his hand he holds a pure white scroll with your name written in golden letters. He tells you this is your time of “graduation”. You have passed some extremely difficult tests in the past 6 months, and now you are ready to start a new cycle. Take some time to meditate on what it is that you really wish to manifest in the coming weeks. Try to be as specific as possible. Thoth reminds you that your words and thoughts are extremely powerful. Thoth now places the scroll into your hands. There may be a symbol; word or sound that comes to you when you feel it. This is part of your “soul signature”, and you are now ready to recognize it. Your heart expands with light at his words, and your mind feels crystal clear. You are energized and excited as you come back to your full consciousness and realize what an extraordinary adventure awaits you!!
