We're in the Dark of the Moon in Aquarius all day. The old hopes and dreams we held for our future and for the future of this planet - you know, that ones that didn't quite materialize - are folded into the Balsamic soup.
It's all OK, somehow. Listen to the Moon as it whispers to let go.
Our niches as elegant and freedom-forging Aquarian revolutionaries with Piscean sage mastery in our back pockets are unfolding. The times of our greatest relevance are still up ahead. Your life has more meaning today that it ever has. You're a thorn in the side and sand in the underwear of all those who want humanity placated, drugged, accepting, docile, handled.
The track you carve out stirs them, shows them how it's done, that it's still possible under Pluto in Capricorn. The weight and pressure you bring yourself through - immense - inspires. Taken to the breaking point and almost beyond a million times. You get through so others can, too. So we can't be broken. The most difficult links are strengthed by your efforts. The tightest and trickiest knots untied. Honour.
The icy coolness of five bodies in Aquarius soothes the hot and stormy mass of unrealized wishes and hopes flying around, quenching old, under-the-Piscean-veil desires with a sizzle and then a glorious wave-lapping neutrality as we wait to see what really unfolds.
The lists made of the Dream Guy, the Dream Girl, the Dream Home, the Dream Job are yellowed and old. Pictures torn from magazines of happy families with your specially chosen names for the kids written in. It's not so hard to let go now.
Things fade to black and we're relieved of our Balsamic soup-making tonight with the New Moon at 8:31 p.m. Central time. We rub our bleary eyes as a new sliver of light starts to reveal to us what the infusion of Aquarian planets has in mind from here.
The Sun, Moon and Mars are conjunct in mid-Aquarius with Neptune and Chiron bringing up the rear in the sign of the water-bearer. This marks the halfway point of our two-year Mars cycle.
The path has been twisty, turny, bumpy, scary, heartbreaky - but it's our's. It's meaty, heady, potent with meaning. Our time of being alive on this planet.
We're past the halfway mark in our series of Thirteenth Witch New Moons at four of six, moving through wave after wave of new territory in the domain of the denied feminine realities. The burst of forward movement we need to make it through. Translating and utilizing these insights - spoken in the language of emotion - is necessary from here.
The thirteenth floor of the building is suddenly becoming accessible to us, and it holds the final puzzle piece that makes the thing whole again.
