Today, the Moon is in Aquarius ruled by quirky Uranus and solid Saturn. Saturn is the old ruler of Aquarius and connects to the fixed nature of this sign. It is both a strength and a weakness that Aquarius can adhere to its own point of view. It is unbending to the pressure of convention yet also can become so rigid in its ideas it perversely sticks to them just to be different. Uranus distinguishes the future-oriented aspect of Aquarius, the belief that the world can be a better place for everyone if changes are made. Uranus wants us to wake up and see how we all have a part to play in society.
It’s a good time to look at where how you fit in to the wider world. What is your place in society? Do you follow a conventional or alternative path? What do you believe will happen in the future – how can you create it or change it? Look at what is happening in your local community, watch the news, call your friends and arrange a get-together.
This Moon brings a friendly vibe with less emphasis on emotional attachment and more on bonding through common beliefs and discussion. Enjoy a meeting of minds. It’s a good time to explore how to move forward with plans and create a new mission statement. High on the agenda is fairness for all and a humanitarian outlook. Tolerance of those who don’t make this a priority may be sorely lacking. It’s the perfect time to present innovative ideas though guard against shocking for the sake of it.
This is the ideal time to be highly focused on the task at hand as emotions can be put to one side in favour of doing what needs to be done. In the natural chart, Aquarius is the 11th house opposite the 5th house ruled by the Sun. With the Moon in Aquarius we are encouraged to put our egos aside and attend to matters that affect us all rather than our personal concerns.
You may feel like being a little rebellious now and refuse to punch the clock for anyone. Sometimes this energy can evoke a sense of being scattered or ‘wired’. If you have been feeling in a rut, routine tasks may seem like torment and you may crave something new and different to spark your imagination. Flashes of insight may occur, new understandings of old problems. You may suddenly decide to break an old habit – or create a new one. Moon in Aquarius is a time of ideas and blesses taking a logical look at life. Dare to let your individuality shine.
As we grow as unique persons, we learn to respect the uniqueness of others. Robert H. Schuller
