I try to make my lunarscopes as positive as I can but this New Moon has an insidious energy to it. Other Astrologers are proclaiming this to be one of the best new moons of 2019 but I can’t ignore my intuition which is telling me something else.
We must always remember that a New Moon is a black moon- she’s invisible and thus our mind, feelings, and subconscious are susceptible to this darkening as well.
Aquarius energy is detached and naive but when channeled properly is engaged with its emotions. I have found Aquarian new moons to be of a trickster energy, the wolf in sheep’s clothing, a fake smile, and weak handshake etc….It’s about wanting something but purposely making it unachievable. In order to remedy these negative influences, we must not be afraid to look past our murky thoughts in order to arrive at the understanding of these emotional constraints.
New Moon conjunct Mercury- dark thoughts
New Moon sextile Jupiter- misrepresentation
Mercury sextile Jupiter- moonlight reflecting off of water
Saturn sextile Neptune- grounding deception
A black Aquarian moon will increase maliciousness and intentional deception. Occurring at 15 degrees Aquarius- it is an Imbolc new moon, a time when nature’s detox begins after a long winters nap. This degree marks the point where the water cascades out of the water bearers vase. With the sextiles to Jupiter and Neptune, the water is purifying so long as we are ready for it to remove our toxins.
16º Aquarius: A ship running before the wind with bare poles. The sea, black and angry, is illumined by a ray of moonlight which shines through a break in the heavy clouds.
Denotes one of a trusting spiritual nature who will have trials in life threatening and bitter, and who will often be storm-driven and held in the grip of hard circumstances. Now and then there are breaks in the storms of life which bring relief, no matter how small. But he must go on; his way is difficult and the night is dark, but in the morning light will come. It is a symbol of Experience.
So why all the negativity? The stormy essence during this NM represents an internal churning, a conflict between our need for progress and our fear of failing. It is these two opposing forces that causes us to be vulnerable to deception and manipulation. This is a message from above that we must start facing reality because even the most treacherous storms have an eye that acts as a way out of rational programming. The deeper you push yourself into the Aquarian fear of emotionality, the faster the storm will pass.
We cannot trust our thoughts or information during this NM, but everything changes when we come to understand that we are the storm that has come to clear our path. 😉
