Lucky 13 Aquarius New Moon and Things are Popping

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.

Man o Man is life whirl-winding or what?

I'm a caffinated dervish screaming out my Happy Metal Rabbit Year, Candlemas, Imbolc, Brigid's Day-the hell else you got? Well Happy all of it. I want some of those whip guys riding camels on our side.

Tellin' ya, kids, it's a brain-fisting, face-fucking, shake-your-booty kinda time. You can nap but you can't sleep. Get up, get out and grab something by the astral balls. GRAB! NOW!

Wow! Thanks for this post. The Balsamic moon today. Born on one and I guess that's why I stayed home today...the energy is so familiar and time to let go of more stuff...the invidious, limiting status quo, and to envision even more freedom. So Aquarian!

I like this: "The times of our greatest relevance are still up ahead. Your life has more meaning today that it ever has." Very reassuring on this New Moon.

Chinese Year of the Rabbit. Native peoples associate rabbit with "fear," but I see it as abundance (they breed fast enough!) and cooperation.

Very interesting day, now that the balsamic gloom has dispersed.

I too had a lull, a calm in the storm after the New Moon. But something else is building up again. You feel it?

Blast some tunes and go with it. To a point.

I'm re-reading your last reports, Willow, and did I skip over the word "possession?"

Because there is an inhabiting presence in all this. The 13th floor is opening indeed and I feel it's energies may want more hosting than what they should be allowed.

From the active participants in a revolution to the housewife with hobbies, this energy wants IN. Discernment is key. But how do you discern all of this?

What are your suppressed energies? What could you be picking up from somewhere else?

For instance, a mob mentality after a sports game. A riot. A 4th of July gone wrong in Huntington Beach Ca. The average joe lights a car on fire, smashes some windows, punches some people because it just felt good. He gets home and thinks ohmygod, what the fuck have I done? Where did that come from? And he's one of hundreds that did such things.

I know I might just be projecting my own mania on ya'll but much has been disrupted and we are not who we were. Let's try to be on a reasonable path to who we are going to be. Our choice, not something elses we can get caught up in.

Hey, if you want to set cars on fire, let me tell you

I didn't explain clearly.

YOU, Willow, did not in the least say anything of possession.
I asked if you had skipped over the word because I did not see it present. I was feeling something I had not read in any of your articles and was throwing in MY krazy observances.

In hindsight I should have written something and just linked from here rather than trying to steal the soapbox and confuse messages.
