New Moon in Aquarius

New Moon in Aquarius
New Moons offer us a chance to immerse ourselves in a sign’s energy. Aquarius is a fixed air sign, and is concerned with ideals and archetypes, the group Mind and our ability to work together as equals for the future. Our Aquarian nature helps us strive for freedom, community and equality. 

The constellation of Aquarius is called the Water Bearer, and is most often symbolized by the figure of a man pouring water from a jar.  The ancients imagined that this whole section of the night sky was a great celestial sea: the constellation of Aquarius is surrounded by the constellations of the Whale, the Fishes, the Dolphin and Eridanus — the River Po. For when the Sun passes through the sign of Aquarius, it heralds the rainy season in these ancient lands. The symbol for Aquarius, two wavy lines, seems to represent undulating lines of water.

But the astrological sign of Aquarius is a fixed Air sign, representing rational intelligence and social interaction. Aquarius is more concerned with ideals than feelings — the awakening of the mind and its vast potentials, as well as the urge for true freedom. The brilliance of the Aquarian mind seems to reflect the working of the cosmic mind. That’s why Aquarius is so often related to the Archetypal world. Carl Jung saw the coming Age of Aquarius as an age when the archetypes are lived consciously by humanity. If this is the truth behind the image of the Water Bearer, than we can say he is pouring out the watery contents of the collective unconscious for us to access.

Aquarius calls us to stand up for our ideals.  And it does this through community.  When we band together, we create a stronger energy than when we stand alone.  The water of our feeling life connects us to each other and to our ideals. That’s why the symbol of Arthur’s Round Table is so apt for this sign. We are called to become a community of equals.

And Happy Chinese New Year of the Water Snake to you!

Until next time,

Sweet Dreams!
