“We have it in our power to begin the world over again.” Thomas Paine

Most of us may already know the standard  “New Moon” drill: New Moons signify “new beginnings.” A New Moon occurs when the Moon, in its monthly orbit around Earth, lies between the Earth and Sun, and is therefore “in conjunction” with the Sun as viewed from Earth.

The New Moon on February 2nd at 13 degrees of “liberating” Aquarius (9:31 pm EST) is more powerful than the norm because it conjoins “initiator” Mars, ruler of the aggressive urge. This could propel us into more of a “manic” phase, or launch at warp speed. A “do, do, do” mode. Mars represents the physical energy in the body. A caution here is that we don’t overtax or overburden our systems, or lose our tempers. Anger management may be very wise now for all of us. Remember, too, that expansive Jupiter is in Mars-ruled Aries which can also raise up our activity level, as we scurry about conquering new horizons. Aries is very pioneering and does not want to be restrained. Neither does this New Moon in Aquarius.

Also we may be tempted to take a walk on the “wild side” now because beatnik Aquarius can be somewhat of a rules-breaker, and is prone to experimentation. Additionally, during this lunation, “love child” Venus in “spontaneous” Sagittarius is forming an exact square to electrifying Uranus, the ruler of Aquarius, in “spaced out” Pisces. With Venus-Uranus, we are looking for more “freedom of expression” in our intimate encounters and also in our social life. A good time to maybe radically spice things up in the bedroom. We are also able to accept or tolerate, or may even become entwined with people who are vastly different than ourselves. This, too, is partly because we are much more bored with the tried-and-true, and restless for excitement.

Also, connector Venus is simultaneously trine to fantasy Neptune, giving us no shortage of phantom lovers to help us make it through the New Moon night. Whether that perfect specimen of a man, George Clooney, will be among this fanciful procession, remains to be seen. We can only hope and fervently pray that this is the case. 🙂 Neptune represents creative types of people: dancers, writers, actors, singers, painters, etc. So Venusian alliances could pop up with these types of folks.

The New Moon in Aquarius also forms a harmonious trine to ambitious Saturn in “Beatles hold my hand” Libra. Not only are we pumped up to begin our lives anew, to take charge and make our defining mark (Mars), we also have the blessing of paternalistic Saturn, who is helping us to adroitly organize our affairs with precision and self-discipline so we can mightily ascend that exciting ladder of success. This trine to Saturn is big. Very big. No reason now why we can’t score that little house on the prairie with the white picket fence.

Too, even though a New Moon conjunct Mars can be fully self-absorbed, the trine to Saturn in relationship-building Libra suggests that we progress the most now by including others somehow into the cryptic equation. Busy little love goddess Venus is also pointing to the same thing. This is not a time for us to be an island. We want our personal freedom, yes, but we also are more inclined to be around other people now. With perhaps a marked preference for “new” other people who are unusual types. Also, Aquarius rules team orientation. This could be a key time to assume a leadership role in a group setting. Additionally, a wonderful time to immerse ourselves in positive, humanitarian causes for the collective. Our efforts can make a difference now!

“Individual commitment to a group effort – that is what makes a team work, a company work, a society work, a civilization work.” Vince Lombardi.

“What we call the beginning is often the end. And to make an end is to make a beginning. The end is where we start from.” T.S. Eliot
