New Moon Phase: set intentions, initiate, begin

Moon in Aquarius

Ruling Wisdom Goddess: Matangi

Skill: take a leap of faith

Negative Imprint: losing faith, hopelessness, unfeeling, betrayal, pretension, pushing one's beliefs, repeating the same behavior, too insulated, ungrounded

Positive Imprint: renewed faith, making progress, loyalty, sparks of creativity, safeguards, firmly grounded, spiritual awakening, assurance

Sabian Symbol for the Lunar Month: "an old adobe mission" (creating the Second Renaissance; spiritual retreat)

The New Moon that offers energy to create the Second Renaissance begins today.  The infrastructure of our future is forming.

The New Moon is in Aquarius and Aquarius energy dances an electric dance.  It is ruled by Uranus, the planet that has been the key factor in what has developed in the world and in our lives since March of 2014 (the beginning of the current astrological year).  Uranus storms through with lightning bolts and high volts of change.  He moves swiftly, decisively, unpredictably, and shockingly.  We've all been struck by lightning in some way or ways over the past year.

Uranus is masterful, however, in that the energy catalyzes whatever needs to happen in order for us to be in proper alignment with what is in our highest and best interests.  My teacher always says "Uranus puts you where you need to be."

Along that (electrical) line, this month we are putting things in place that need to be put in place.  This includes plans, links, relationships, projects, ideas, expressions, havens, gatherings - anything and everything that contributes to a world that is aligned with nature.  Sanity returns when we are more naturally-aligned.

Worlds do clash today when people feel that their way is the best and only way.  A "know-it-all" attitude only causes people to turn away.  The goal is acceptance and even reverence for everyone's right to freely make choices and freely speak.  This issue develops all month long and will no doubt be manipulated by anyone dominated by an internal struggle for power and control to maximize propaganda and conflict between people.  This happens at the global level of the world and the individual level of our lives.  Petty tyrants tend to show out.

Today's events foreshadow the issues and experiences of the upcoming month, especially as a "revisiting" of the past or feeling that the past is happening again.  The energy of the Black Moon brings opportunities to do things a different way.  We can get off the merry-go-round.

To do this, we might have to go in a radically different direction - way beyond what we have normally experienced.  Leaps of faith may be in heavy demand.

Today's energy is erratic and somewhat chaotic, so be prepared to ride the electric waves.  And remember what it truly is - energy to create the future.
