In Astrology, when planets conjoin, we experience a new cycle of their combined energetic forces, expressed through style of the zodiacal sign they are in.
Our Sun and Moon are always the “top news stories” what we are all feeling and experiencing in the cosmic weather.
This event in Aquarius brings up themes of equality, the uniqueness of and importance of each of our needs, as well as what is fair and not fair. Individual and unique needs may come up against the collective.
Although classified as fixed air, Aquarius’s symbol is the water bearer. It’s glyph features two wavy parallel lines, symbols for water and also energy. It’s Tarot card is The Star, featuring a young woman simultaneously pouring waters into a stream and the earth; Illustrating the beauty and grace of sharing our spiritual and material gifts with the world.
Aquarius has ever been associated with both detachment and service, and features traditional and modern planetary rulers, which are Saturn and Uranus respectively. These two energies blend to create structures (Saturn) that potentially do not represent old or hierarchal formations, but are created along the line of egalitarian and free (Uranus) organizing factors.
Our lunation presents with a friction based square from Uranus in Taurus, this is like the “crossing card” in a Tarot spread; What is the wild card energy in life that is preventing our ideals from forming?
What is at cross purposes with our aims?
Clues can be found in the Sabian Symbol for the Lunation:
A WOMAN DISAPPOINTED AND DISILLUSIONED, COURAGEOUSLY FACING THE FUTURE
This Symbol shows the ability, or the need, to be “Courageous” in the face of “Disappointment” or Disillusionment”..
There can be feelings of wasting energy, and thoughts of failure, but being strong and vigilant against negative thoughts can turn situations around quickly. It always helps to look on disappointment as a teacher. Reconnect with what is available and possible, and, although it requires courage to get back on track, we always return with greater wisdom and understanding.

What we have in this moment, the quality of this time, is an opportunity to face the sadness and disappointment of living in “Interesting Times” of great and accelerated change.
As Uranus AND Saturn disposit the lunation, Saturn’s helpful sextile with Jupiter is here to help. Remember the advice that in every “disaster” to “look for the helpers.”
We have jolly old Jove, bringing us hope and a philosophical attitude, combining with Saturn’s ever pragmatic and sturdy advice of “ this too, shall pass” to guide us.
It's a jangly weird energetic time- try and nurture yourself with an open and inventive mindset, and ground yourself and your body.
Wishes are best made along the lines of inventions, future thinking ideas, and group and community betterment.
New Moon Blessings,
