You were born with wings, why do you prefer to crawl through life? ~Rumi
Blessings this new moon!
New moon in Aquarius has the potential to trigger our remembering that our personal gift is the uniqueness of our beautiful self and that nothing need ever be given precedence over living true to our personal integrity. The Sun and Moon united at 12:39am MST 1-23-2012 in "We are all neighbors in eternity" Aquarius and they connect with Jubilantly Expansive Jupiter and Radically Reforming Uranus while the Sun is also parallel Peeling-Away-Pretenses Pluto.
Whew, if that were not enough excitement to fuel the month, Mars is feeling antsy at this new moon because he must exercise patience while he retraces the steps he's been taking through self-refining Virgo since mid-November 2011. Our dreams are growing but a necessary part of the process is that Mars must be astute in self-examination to ensure that his actions are aligned with where we intend to grow our life. (For more on Mars retrograde, see Mars Retrograde newsletter.)
This "we are all in this together" Aquarius new moon inspires you to let your light shine brightly while celebrating with and appreciating all the brilliant lights shining around you. This is the month to hook up with your spiritual allies--those people who share a common mission with you--to deepen those bonds and brainstorm exciting possibilities to engage together. Jupiter's influence encourages you to catch the rising tide of opportunity with a spirit of enthusiasm that's infectious and inspiring to others in all situations.
If you follow your bliss, doors will open for you that wouldn’t have opened for anyone else ~ Joseph Campbell
Uranus advocates standing up to the pressures of conformity and nudges at your comfort zones in order to create a bit of chaos that prevents you from falling asleep at the wheel. Uranus is satisfied when he witnesses the Divine in you expressing itself through the unique nuances of your individuated self, engaging the authentic, the pure, the distinctly integral. Every shape and size and color is welcomed into the fold, each individual has something special to offer to the whole.
Make room for
surprises. Make room for multidimensionality. Make room for all the unexpected
twists and turns life takes,
for all the emotions it generates, for all the guidance you will receive from your intuition and body.
Make room for all the growth you’ll achieve and the people you will touch and who will touch you.~ Melody Beattie
As cosmic energies that support the transcendence of the personal while encouraging individuation within the whole, both Uranus and Pluto urge you to drop the serious world and its pretenses so that you aren't distracted by any of its nonsensical, trivial, limiting and energy-draining temptations. Live each day as if it is your first--give it your best. Pluto is famous for finding the cracks in everything so that the light gets in. It must in order to illuminate the roots of any self and other-undermining tendencies. Pluto rewards sharing power because power shared empowers all.
When the power of love overcomes the love of power, the world will know peace. ~ Jimi Hendrix
Pluto also encourages you to call your spirit back, to welcome home and reintegrate and regenerate those parts of you that have been neglected, sacrificed, sublimated, destroyed, or lost in space. Those that pass the test that stymies many--able to sublimate and channel the ego's controlling, manipulating and "an eye for an eye" tendencies--achieve personal mastery and make the world a better place for all.
There are, of
course, no guarantees. From the viewpoint of fear, none are strong enough.
From the viewpoint of love, none are necessary.~ Emmanuel
Exciting possibilities to cultivate! Celebrate this new moon by writing down every experience you welcome having. Start a "bucket list" if you haven't already. Visualize your dreams fulfilled--trust that they are being orchestrated by Great Mystery. Don't think about the how. The unprecedented is never on our radar screen. So, release the how and just trust that you'll be guided each glorious, synchronous step.
Your focused intention plants the seeds—kernels of possibilities that will be nurtured not only by your thoughts, affirmations and visualizations, but also by this new moon. Remember, it's not seeing is believing, it's believing is seeing!
Believe even in your "impossible" dreams. In so doing you welcome having a direct experience that there is no order of difficulty in miracles!
May the sun be in your heart and life’s magic and abundant blessings be with you this new moon,
