There is group mind, outer mind, and inner mind. There is past, present and future. There is right, wrong, and neutrality. There is love, hate, and indifference. Somewhere they all meet up, while certain ones meet up at certain times, but they are obviously not all the same. The New Moon on January 20th highlights the ways that each of these states of being both merge and break.
As the New Moon occurs at 0 degrees of Aquarius, its ruling planet Uranus makes an exact conjunction to the South Node at 12 degrees of Aries, which is still in a square with Pluto in Capricorn. There some definite endings taking place, particularly in the social, technical and political arenas, and for many in their personal lives. With Mercury slowing down to go Retrograde in Aquarius on the 21st until February 11th the outcomes of certain situations seem impossible to predict.
During this first New Moon of 2015 we are given a glimpse of what will unfold throughout the year. It has become so clear what we need to release in order to experience renewal. A deep evaluation of past experiences, actions and reactions can be useful but it’s time to move out of the ruts that keep us locked into the same-old, same-old.
It is as if the 6th chakra of the world is rapidly awakening, and this New Moon marks a new relationship to ourselves as spiritual beings having a physical experience. Dreams, visions, and intuition are all being heightened in ways that the current era has not yet seen. It seems scary at first to trust a dream, hunch or vision that comes as foreign, outrageous and unlike anything accepted as “normal”. It is precisely these dreams, visions and hunches that we must pay closer attention to, as we follow the threads of synchronicity and heart wisdom to guide us to more fulfilling lives.
