New Moon in Aquarius

Sudden Insight

New Moon Aquarius

Light Bulb Moments

It’s time to carry a note pad, maybe tie it around your neck. The 3x5 size is a little less distracting than the 11x8, but do what ya gotta do to keep up with these flashing insights. Aquarian insights pop in quick and then they’re gone, in a flash. Ever have an idea and before you can write it down its gone - like turning on a lamp and having the bulb pop and flash and there you are standing in the dark, momentarily stunned. This is Aquarius, and it is especially prevalent with this New Moon.

Aquarius is the flash and Mercury is the messenger, and Mercury, currently also in Aquarius, is going to barely make it to Pisces the first of February, as it retrogrades February 5 back into Aquarius until March 18. Jot everything down. Your plan will eventually move into high gear, but with the action planet, Mars, retrograding March 1 until the third week of May, initiating major projects until then - could bring less than desirable results.

It has been noted that inspirational thoughts that simply won’t leave you alone are Aquarian messages that want to be dealt with NOW. When you have an inspirational thought that rises to consciousness and is remembered several weeks or months later – that is something in your life that is to be created in the future, usually two to three years out.

This New Moon on Thursday, January 30th kicks off a month long deluge of inspiration and merging of consciousness with Universal consciousness. This can be genius inspiration so by all means jot down all your ideas. As the ego personality steps out of the way, these sparks fly in. Pay attention while you’re driving, the veil is thin this month. There’s a need to ground. Take those walks and keep your feet on terra firma. We’re learning to walk in both worlds, and the wash still needs to be done, the groceries bought, - in other words there’s work to be done here, on the planet, so “do your best, don’t shirk your duties – and leave the rest to God.”

Virgo energy reminds us to slow down and to rest our bodies, and our spirit, and our minds. Health, diet, and sleep are major concerns when Virgo energy is called upon. Ever notice when you just can’t finish a project ‘right’ and you push away and take a walk or lie down – in pops the answer to the dilemma, and renewed you return to the project and voila, dare I say ‘perfection’? I’ve read that when we open ourselves to spirit – the third eye is activated. That’s integration.

Please, if you like, I invite you to write down affirmations during the first 48 hours after the new moon. GUIDELINES for working with the New Moon energy are here.
