Explore Your Dreams: Aquarius New Moon and Venus

With Venus about to turn direct conjunct Pluto, this Aquarius New Moon indicates we need to include the feminine dimensions of life into our new vision of the future. Without the balanced equality of masculine and feminine, we are doomed to repeat the same mistakes. Venus has been retrograde in Capricorn since December 21st and goes direct the day after this New Moon, January 31. She is at her closest point to the Earth and disappeared from the night sky on January 5th and re-emerged as the Morning Star on January 17th. As Adam Gainsburg describes it in his book 'The Light of Venus', Venus is in her ‘birth’ phase, a time of a new awakening feminine spirit. The Goddess has returned in our times as we saw when Venus went across the face of the Sun in 2004 and again in 2012. We have just begun the 2nd of the 5 cycles of Venus, which started this time in 2012 and will end in 2020. Venus went retrograde in the sign of Capricorn, our collective structures. While Pluto in Capricorn has been revealing what is dead and decaying in our culture, Venus’ retrograde through the sign has brought the heart of compassion into the story, hoping to change our collective values. Are the values of 'The Wolf of Wall Street' something to emulate? Or will we finally see the emptiness of the capitalistic promise of continuing expansion and exploitation? Hopefully, Venus’ retrograde has opened our hearts to a new, more feminine compassion and collaboration, focused on care of the Earth and care for each other. At this New Moon, Venus will be stationing conjunct Pluto in Capricorn, opposite Jupiter in Cancer, squaring Uranus in Aries and Mars in Libra. She’s part of our on-going revolutionary square and grand cross. We’re adding our personal values to the cosmic revolution. Patriarchy often takes what we value and then uses it for its own purposes—just watch the ad that talks about our soulful essence and then tries to sell us an ipad! Patriarchal thinking uses the imagination to sell us things rather than learning to listen to the imagination to tell us things about our life. Perhaps Venus will help us stand up for our values as we head into the big grand square that’s coming our way in late April. Venus turns direct at 14* Capricorn: 'An ancient bas-relief carved in granite remains as witness to a long-forgotten culture'. This symbol asks us to unearth what is of eternal value and release what is superficial. We first do this within ourselves and then work together to bring about a new value system and a new paradigm of life, which is soul-full and attuned to the feminine dimensions of life. Some feminine archetypes have been added to astrology through the addition of the asteroids. At this New Moon, Juno, symbolizing our ideas of partnership, is in Pisces conjunct Chiron, the Wounded Healer and opposite Pallas Athena in Virgo. Our karmic patterns of relationship (Juno) are dissolving back into the Collective Unconscious (Pisces) and we are healing (Chiron) ourselves as we leave behind patriarchal ideals of marriage. At the same time, we have to use our analytical ability (Virgo) along with our creative intelligence (Pallas) to find new forms of relationship that fit a more individuated society. Her discernment and emphasis on superior workmanship united with imagination can help us manifest these new ideals. Ceres, the great Mother Goddess and Vesta, the goddess of fire and sexuality, are in the sign of Libra along with Mars. These energies can help us find ways for men and women to relate with each other in a more balanced and loving way, with mutual respect and courtesy. These feminine energies can teach us to trust ourselves and each other, if we each stay true to ourselves and bring our truth into the conversation. Honor your own inner vision this New Moon. Until Next Time, Sweet Dreams!
