Tropical Astrology Update: Moon in Alkaline Aquarius

April 13, 3:44 am Sydney/Melbourne
We begin this week riding on a physical and mental buzz of ambition inspired by the Capricorn Moon. I know after that ride with “Sergeant Sagittarius” and “Coach Capricorn” you are ready to come off of Saturn’s scythe and ride the waves of a more heavenly, care-free vibe. Well the next few days will be an excellent lesson in compromise as the moon in Aquarius still has ties to Saturn in Classical Astrology. While it is divine, it is designed to bring out the divine within.
Why Should You Care?
Perhaps you shouldn’t, The cosmos knows that unless something is really important to Aquarius, they might not have any f*cks to give. For those of you that have a spare to give its because in modern astrology, Aquarian energy is known for its “higher minded” and “higher octave” link to Uranus “The Awakener!” In case you have been living in the bowels of Gaia, Uranus has earned quite the reputation as the “Shock Jock” of the cosmos. Discovered in 1781, Uranus 84 year journey orbits the solar system on its side at a 98º angle trumpeting its unique and very eccentric distinction from the other planets. Since Uranus rules Aquarius, the term eccentric is a two-for one special. The word “eccentric” could easily refer to the planets axis of rotation, with the north and south poles on its side, or eccentric could easily refer to the array of non-conventional personas that loosely describes most of our authentic Aquarians. Being a lunar Aquarian, you never know if you will get strawberry shortcake or punk rock, so always be prepared.
Why Must You Understand All This Nerdy Stuff To Understand Aquarii?
Because Aquarius is one of the many “sexy librarians” of the zodiac so when we pass through the Aquarius moon in Tropical Astrology, we experience a much wider range in the possibility of emotions we may encounter. Knowing Uranus is a large “ice giant” planet with lots of complex layers helps me when my Aquarian friends goes “off the script.” In fact, knowledge about Uranus’ details reminds me that one must never attempt to correlate a script of ANY KIND to your Aquarian’s behavior; or they might just flip the script on you and do the EXACT opposite of what they deduced you expected that they might do!
—I know! that hurt my head too—
How Does This Apply To The Beginning Of Our Week And March Towards The New Moon?
Like Aquarius’ symbol with the two waves on it, this week can have a few meanings. The two waves can mean water waves coming out of Aquarius’ water jug. The two waves can mean waves of electricity; the ethereal fire that obtains its oxygen from the AIR that fuels your intellectual thoughts. Look at this as the type of thoughts that you quickly put into action whilst you are still actively brainstorming. This approach may lead to a faster manifestation cycle when we allow our INTELLECT to work in HARMONY with our INTUITION. However you perceive of the function of these waves, they are supposed to purify our pursuits. Just be careful not to let your passions turn you into a zealot. Please be inclusive of those that you might not normally consider.
Since AIR is also METAL in Chinese astrology or blades/knives/spades in the Tarot, think of what it means to have a “sharp mind” or to “carve” creations out of ideas. Aquarius is about deducting and reducing any structure or process that does not serve us personally or collectively. This is one of the many reasons Aquarius’ ruler, Uranus, is a powerful transpersonal planet as its impact resonates effectively for the whole of humanity in a microcosmic and macrocosmic context. Since Aquarius has a classical association with Saturn, consider the notion that Capricorn’s relation ship is to define and set limits and boundaries for success and failure; while Aquarius’ role (or pole if we are talking polarity) is to defy such structure, guidelines and processes until they are refined enough to serve everyone.
Please excuse the oxymoron, but Aquarius energy is about taking Saturn’s abacus of accountability and smacking you on your big head until you come up with creative ways to serve a larger number of humanity based on morality, not fiscal accountability. You will see this playing out as austerity has become the new way to control the masses and support the tenets of the “business cycle.” This way “depressions” go away forever and get replaced by “recessions” so that the masses don’t truly understand the severity of the social and economic stakes at hand. If you don’t know the details, how does one make an informed responsible decision? Expect major social and political upheaval as Spain figures out how to protest using holograms, “hacktavist” begin targeting their next “tower” to bring down and the “kabuki theater” that is western world politics, continues its tour.
The Winds of Change
This week starts of with “IK,” in the Mayan cosmology. It also coincides with he beginning of a wave of 13 day signs and therefore defines the types of energies that will be heightened for the next 13 days. So we will be purifying how we flow over the next few days, reconnecting intention with its impact on life force. Think Prana, Chi, Ki, Kul, àṣẹ, and the multiple words and ways that we define life force energy on each continent of the world. Aquarius energy makes us see how big the picture is while reducing its size in one big pass. Since Venus moved into Gemini and turned into a rogue party girl, don’t expect that you won’t have passion for many things this week, so choose wisely if you want things to last. Conversely, with Mars in Taurus, don’t feel you need to hang on to everything that is not working out. Uranus already had its conjunction with the Aries sun so the potential for sudden change remains high with great potential for overnight success. Since Mercury is still in Aries, you will definitely be discussing the things you want to start, but by the 14th expect that you will be more focused on the tangible and sustainable choices, as Mercury joins Mars in Taurus.
The influence of the Aquarian moon this week may have us over-thinking, so please forgive yourself before you begin. I know that Aquarius comes with more Bat Sh*t that you can find in “The Dark Knight’s” cave, but our visionaries of courage and creativity deserve a pass as they will not rest until we clean up the “mess” that is the world.
This is the week of the cosmic seed of awakened awareness. For those of you that trust your intellect and intuition Aquarius’ wave symbol will act as a lightning rod of insight as you become a beacon and receiver for cosmic consciousness. This may open the third-eye chakra helping you to remember the ascended master from within and let go of the concept of any “gurus” outside of the self. Under the Aquarius moon, drink in the alkaline waters of divine guidance from within and take a quantum leap towards self-mastery.
Aquarius I Jan 20-29
The purist and the most zealous of the “shock Jock” crew. They are sweet and beautiful unless you are evil. If you are evil, they will make the term “hell on earth” seem like a spa day in the Bahamas. Like the Myth of Ganymede, they are as deadly as they are gorgeous. This is the decan that is 100% Uranus Aquarius; Straight up NO CHASER! If there is a tree-hugging bohemian with cosmic consciousness that extends beyond the boundaries of the known cosmos, you are likely to find it here. And don’t let the smart librarian thing fool you, like all Aquarians, being sexy is as easy as breathing while one sleeps. It just is!
Aquarius II Jan 30-Feb-8
This is the exceptionally brilliant visionary section of Aquarius that is Gemini like in that it is ruled by Mercury. Since Uranus is the “higher octave” of Mercury, this group has all of the strengths of Aquarius from the Bat Sh*t Cray to the “This sux, please torch it now” approach of Uranus. They can agree, agree to disagree and change their mind all in one stroke and seem like they are being shallow and duplicitous. In reality, this sort of insight just makes them so open to the array of possibilities that they often will give you an opinion with the option to change it. This is the epitome of the Aquarian that hates “labels.” Yuk! Who likes socialization boxes anyways? But beware, this one can be a tad more vain then the other two variety. I don’t blame Gemini, I blame Mercury!
Aquarius III Feb-9-18
This is probably the most honest, open and diplomatic Aquarian you will find as they are deep in the Libra sector being influenced by that social and sensual Venus. This Aquarius has strong fixed opinions, but they are more likely to listen than debate. And why not? To them its win/win. Either you present yourself well with substantiated facts and some persuasion in your game or you reveal just how deep your ignorance burrows into the shadows of the “twit-ocracy” of humanity. This brand of Aquarius doesn’t need to fight enemies or frenemies because they already wasted too much time listening to you in the first place. This Aquarian may “lose” your number to “gain” their sanity.
This Week Please Consider:
Not being stubborn, no matter how “right” you may be
Keep away from sexting or the NSA might acquire your “dick pic” or other private parts
If you are going to be “passionate,” listen to the opinions of others without interruption
What do you need to banish or change in time for an active new moon in Aries?
Have a great week!
