How do you know when you are on the right path to make your dreams come true? Well, one of my favorite tools for prediction is astrology and we have a New Moon in Aquarius, Sunday the 25th of January at 10:55 PM PST. Your dreams, wishes, friendships, charitable interests and organizations will be front and center for the 28 day run of this lunar cycle. Remember, New Moons are for starting new projects and all Aquarian themes (see above) are highlighted for extra power and success.
We will have to contend with the retrograde motion of Mercury (till 1 February 2009) and Saturn (till 16 May 2009). Communications, computer problems, and issues around transportation will continue to cause problems off and on till the first. Be prepared for delays by padding due dates on your important projects; this way, you’ll be covered (hopefully) in the event of a car, computer or communications issue until the retrograde ends. I would even consider stalling new projects until as late as the 21st of February when Mercury finally clears its retrograde shadow and you get an all clear from the celestial Gods. If you cannot wait that long, take extra precautions with your new endeavors (read the fine print!) to insure that you won’t wind up on the short end of the stick.
Aquarius is symbolized by the water bearer and is ruled by the planet Uranus, planet of explosive change. Since this New Moon is also a solar eclipse, Aquarians born early in the sign, plus early Leos, Taurus’ and Scorpios, may all find that they experience some earth shaking changes during the next six months or so.
Aquarius (and Uranus) bring sudden change, they rule technology and ironically old fashioned, traditional values (think Ronald Reagan). Aquarius also rules astrology, and if you’ve been thinking of learning more about this ancient science check out http://stevenforrest.com and check out a book called The Inner Sky. Mr. Forrest is a knowledgeable teacher and you will be in excellent hands as you learn the basics of astrology—albeit with a decidedly unique twist.
As I’ve indicated in previous blogs, I highly recommend developing the ability to intuit trends for yourself, as these are interesting times we live in…I think you’ll find astrology is a phenomenal tool to add to your life tool kit…
P.S. Happy Birthday to my Aquarian friends!
