Aquarius Season/February 2018
Looking ahead: Aquarius season
After a powerful New Moon in Capricorn, the Sun moves into the visionary sign of Aquarius and urges us to push our ambitions into more personal territory, reminding us that success is most satisfying when it is a true reflection of our authentic individuality. Ruled by the explosive energy of Uranus, the planetary liberator of the solar system, Aquarius wants to break down old structures and systems that are no longer serving the progression and fraternity of humankind in order to reveal that the unlikely is more than possible with enough vision and community support.
During Aquarius season, feed your unique vision of success and trust in the possibility of magic and unexpected forward motion. This sign has a profound investment in pulling away the material layers of collective reality to reveal the divine animation of what is underneath the surface. It’s time to be a little bit rebellious and take a risk in standing out, as it is your unique gifts that are exactly the medicine your surroundings require. Aquarius reminds us we are all central to the divine plan, and we each need to communicate our truth in order for the spiritual evolution of our planet to progress.
Lunar cycles: Eclipse season
The Lunar cycle accompanying Aquarius season sends us into eclipse mode! Highlighting the Leo-Aquarius axis, this eclipse pattern is all about stepping into our individuated notion of completion or self-realization (Leo) in order to be of service to humanity and inspire the journeys of liberation belonging to our fellow human beings (Aquarius).
Full Moon/Lunar Eclipse in Leo January 31st, 2018
The Full Moon on January 31st heralds a lunar eclipse because of the Moon’s conjunction to the North Node in Leo. The North Node is a destiny point, signalling aspects of the collective self that need to be developed. In Leo, a sign ruled by the Sun, the heavens are asking that some major work be done in bringing forward our creative gifts and allowing ourselves to radiate more freely in the outside world. Be brave and fierce in self-expression, sharing love generously with those who warm your heart. Courageous Leo longs for less boundaries around the way we approach and express our true selves (our inner Sun/soul nature), in order for us to more fully connect with one another.
New Moon/Partial Solar Eclipse in Aquarius February 15th, 2018
The New Moon on February 15th creates a partial Solar Eclipse because of the Sun-Moon conjunction with the South Node. The South Node is an indicator of release or revision, and asks that we reconsider the way we approach our community and friend group, reeling in any non-authentic ways of being in order to more fully embrace the lessons of the Lunar Eclipse in Leo. Set your intentions for the kinds of people you would like to be surrounded by, who are in support of your unique vision, and don’t be afraid to honestly embrace your way of doing things, as your vibe will attract your tribe. It is important that we are able to share what we earnestly love doing in service to the greater whole, and this energy serves as a reminder for that truth.
