Moon in Aquarius - The Dark Moon enters Aquarius this evening in preparation for the New Moon early tomorrow morning at 2:39AM EST. The Moon in Aquarius connects us to our community, reminds us that we are in this together. It asks us to make sure we walk our talk and integrate our philosophy with our politics. We abstract, communicate, and work the crowd, but may be less intimate. The Moon in Aquarius expands our circles and offers the magick of collaboration; spirit and politics weave together. We can get too farsighted now and need to stay aware of others' feelings. Let go of assumptions and find new, unusual allies. This is a transit of dealing with facts, organizing, political issues , desires to save the world through social actions, connecting with others in social situations, scientific pursuits, detachment and the need to come and go without restriction.
Aquarius monthly transit is a dramatic mood change. Where Capricorn values tradition and caution, Aquarius indicates anything new, innovative, different or unconventional. Extremes of behavior occur during this transit, especially extremes of optimism and pessimism. You may feel the need to be friendly and social but don't want to be too personal or go too deep. Aquarius Moon can be detached or rational rather than emotional, and will change only if it's logical to do so. Freedom is very important now and you need to live with as few restrictions as possible. Moon in Aquarius is the best time to work magick involving science, freedom, creative expression, problem-solving, extrasensory abilities, friendship and the breaking of bad habits or unhealthy addictions. Healing rituals for ailments of the calves, ankles or blood are also done at this time. Those born under an Aquarius Moon sign are far sighted with a gentle stubbornness; they understand group dynamics and may be more aware in the family tribe, community than they are in their most intimate relations.
Sun Day - is the Day of Intent, Creation and Renewal ...... The charms and spells that would complement this magickal day of the sun are ones for personal achievements of any kind - such as if you are seeking fame and wealth, working for that much-deserved promotion at work, pr being acknowledged for a job well done. Health issues, increasing personal power or simply sticking to your diet and being proud of what you have accomplished all fall under the sun's golden influence.
The Sun in Aquarius - Aquarius is a Fixed Air sign indicating thought, intellect and communication. It brings strong reactions to stimulus but also stability, reliability, and a certain amount of stubbornness.
Those born under this Sun sign are generally intense, self-expressive, progressive, spontaneous, communicative and energetic. The typical Aquarius has strong feelings and embraces humanitarian causes. They will put a lot of energy into a cause but may allow their opinions to blind them to the truth. They are generally intelligent, intuitive and full of ideas. They work well with technology and things science based. While they are usually faithful their detached manner and independent nature can lead to misunderstandings. On the negative side they can also be eccentric, contrary, tactless and erratic.
For Aquarius this period is one where both their strengths and weaknesses will be heightened, so they need to be careful to focus on putting their positive aspects to the fore. For this this is not the best of times to be working too closely with new people. They also need to be aware of the need to nurture their relationships and not to appear too distant or self-sufficient. Non-Aquarians will find this a good period for matters of the mind; thought, study and leaning new things, and also for communication. It is a good time for projects which involve helping others.
