Arriving here perhaps not so fashionably late yet quite intact. Recovering myself from the fascinating challenges of the Zero degrees Leo Moon intensity. That was some powerful opposition I must say, as it triggered powerful forces in my own chart and my life personally as well as in the National and Global community. The affects of which will probably not even begin to be made apparent or understood at present yet shall unfold in their due course of time.
Personally for myself in my own life, that zero degree point of Leo opposed Chiron in my natal chart which is zero degrees Aquarius located in my eighth house. This opposition sent remarkable challenges whose soulful purpose, it seems, was to challenge my own resolve to so strongly affirm my commitment to fight through and learn from whatever the challenges were that were set before me.
Being an Astrologer & Astrological Life Coach I was able to catch myself, ground myself and center my Qi. It was the only thing that I was able to do as I was reeling through some seemingly serious setbacks I was able to know that it would calm down. I also knew that all those seemingly insurmountable challenges were was just a detour. Seems to be the initiation process that one must undergo as one is about to take a step forward.
Yes it was the “Demon at the Gate”.
The “Demon at the Gate” is that shadow part of our own inner teacher & guide whose energy, usually in the form of various intense challenges and setbacks, gets set in motion as one is about to move forward towards new horizons and growth. It’s an initiation process that tests us.
It is through the process of undergoing these challenges and coming out the other side which causes us to summon up our inner steadfast persistence and commitment so that we develop strength and wisdom. We establish faith in ourselves and faith in our process, becoming healthier, wealthier and wise.
It good to be aware of ” the self instructors sharp and tender love”.
However I have witnessed and became aware of a gradual yet markedly noticeable shift in energy which I am attributing to this New Moon. The darkened New Moon has begun its journey into light and a new cycle on the 4th of February at 15 degrees Aquarius. That brief but potent moment of the Moon/Sun conjunction in Aquarius, the Cosmic disrupter, and liberator which is in the service of seeking dignity and wholeness of being. A being realized as a respected individual.
Ultimately Aquarius is seeking to bring into being the development of a healthy sustainable “I” that supports a healthy dignified well nourished and balanced “We”.
This New Moon in Aquarius has in it an electromagnetic glint of the potent inventive energy of the planet Uranus grounded and supported by the earthy elevation of Saturn. Throw into the mix the delightful influences of the manifestations of dreams, hopes and desires coming into fruition as Jupiter, the planet of buoyant expansive hope, faith and optimism formed a sextile angle to the New Moon at 15 degrees Aquarius, along with the Sun and Mercury. Even as the Moon has since moved on, the Sun and Mercury have still been forming a sextile to Jupiter.
“Breathe in deep, you’re not asleep, open your eyes”.
The New Moon brings to us a moment in time of possibility.
It is rich in fecund growth and possibilities.
I encourage you to make a wish, an affirmation that supports focusing on what you want in order to create, strengthen or begin anew.
I encourage giving yourself the time to reflect on the month before. Ask yourself what was your journey like last month. Then beginning anew at this moment what would you like to create?
What in your hearts desire needs the light of your resolve and commitment?
Write it down.
I am suggesting a practice that is a way to become in synch as the Moon alights and unfolds as she does in her never ending infinite cycle in relationship to the Sun and Earth. In this way you too can use the energy of this Moon to bring into your life what you would like to manifest for this month.
Write it down.
Then watch it unfold.
