Aquarius is the opposite sign of Leo, where the full Moon was a few weeks ago. Zodiac signs are sometimes best understood in pairs. Star Trek's Captain Kirk and Mr. Spock are well-known exemplars of the archetypes of Leo and Aquarius.

Kirk is bold, courageous, creative in his strategies, emotionally motivated, warm and romantic (even a little melodramatic at times.) He's the golden-boy King of the Enterprise, just as Leo the Lion is king of the beasts.

Aquarian Mr. Spock is his complementary antithesis. He is a paragon of logic: calm, cool, rational, contained and detached. He's highly tolerant; the Vulcan philosophy "Infinite Diversity in Infinite Combinations" drives both his curiosity and non-judgmental objectivity. Meditation and moderation are his hallmarks (except when struck by the 7-year itch). And he is (despite his parentage) a humanitarian, claiming "the needs of the many outweigh the needs of the few, or the one."

As evidenced by the enduring success of the Star Trek franchise, both archetypes need each other to find understanding and completion.

What can we make of the new Moon in pointy-eared Aquarius in our own lives? New Moons are a time to plant seeds and begin new habits related to the sign in which the Moon resides. And so a new Moon in Aquarius is the logical time to adopt or assess our lives from a detached, Spock-like point of view.

If you wish to follow the Tao of Spock, here are a few questions to contemplate during this new Moon:

·        How do you embrace diversity in your life? Where do you embody tolerance, patience and understanding for others, and for yourself?

·        How comfortable are you with being different? Could you be happy in your own skin as the only alien on a ship?

·        How aware are you of yourself and your environment in each moment? Have you ever considered beginning a mindfulness practice?

·        Can you observe your own actions as if you were an external, non-judgmental observer? What would such a practice teach you about yourself?

The new Moon in Aquarius occurs on Feb. 9, 2013, at 11:22 pm PST.
