Aquarian energy at its strongest…
The next lunar month starts with the New Moon of February 11th.
It will occur at 23 Aquarius, accompanied by an extraordinary alignment of Mercury, Venus, Jupiter and Saturn in the same sign.
It seems quite obvious that humanitarian themes will reach an unprecedented climax between February and March. At the beginning of this year our collective attention visibly turned towards social issues and communitarian dynamics. The dismantling impasse of 2020, manifested under an extraordinary Jupiter-Saturn-Pluto alignment in Capricorn, has left very unstable territory behind. The succession of Aquarian/Uranian patterns in 2021/22 will deeply scrutinise and question last year’s social, judicial, financial, ideological and political dynamics.
The next lunar month will more clearly manifest the foundations of this new global/social reality which is still at its birthing phase. As I have specified several times over the last few months, soli-lunar cycles are fast, so they trigger background forces around the zodiac. This year’s main influences are linked to the Jupiter-Saturn-Uranus squares in Fixed signs. February further unlocks that revolutionary, humanitarian, communitarian and ideological energy.
At the New Moon, Neptune will be culminating over Washington DC. This means that some degree of uncertainty and confusion may become visible within governmental circles.
When Neptune is prominent within mundane charts, fascination often meets illusion. Especially during these Uranian times, rational and groundbreaking at their very core, Neptune can turn out to be a really confusing and destabilising influence for the community. Let’s not forget that Neptune often addresses humanity’s archaic need for idolatry and devotion. In DC the New Moon will fall within the 9th House of foreign affairs, as Jupiter features on a tight conjunction with Venus. The Sagittarian South Node and Mercury will form a partile sextile, while squaring both Neptune and the MC/IC axis. With this series of combinations foreign issues and large-scale judicial matters may be on the foreground.
On a general note, the wide square of this Sun-Moon alignment with Mars in Taurus denotes generalised dynamism, while the tight Mercury-Mars may bring fiery quarrels within a confused media community. All in all, this New Moon chart carries a powerful ideological and groundbreaking signature.
Interestingly, the New Moon will conjoin the USA national Moon, so the current energetic shakeup may directly affect the population, which remains dangerously split by two main currents of thought. Our rational judgement and ideological balance are powerfully tested during these Aquarian days.
