new moon in aquarius- freedom is found within (1/31/22)

by | Jan 26, 2022 | Lunar Insight

this year’s new moon in aquarius is a POWERFUL one as we have the new moon at 12’20 aquarius on monday january 31st, 2022 at 9:46pm PST. just hours later we have chinese new year on february 1st, calendar imbolc from february 1st-2nd and then we have solar imbolc- the precise midpoint between the winter solstice/yule and spring equinox/ostara when the sun crosses into the 15th degree of aquarius on february 3rd! the imbolc portal this year is TIGHT- from january 31st-february 3rd! this is the GATE OF EMERGENCE- and something HUGE is emerging personally where aquarius is in your chart (tune to horoscopes for more info) and also collectively.

(be sure to listen to my SOLAR GATE CALL for Solar Imbolc and my LUNAR GATE CALL for the new moon in aquarius/lunar imbolc. these calls are membership content. you can sign up to be a Galactic Benefactor member and access all gate calls, horoscopes and more here- https://divineharmony.com/become-a-member/)

chinese new year always falls a day after the new moon in aquarius (or the 2nd new moon after winter solstice). but this year the new moon in aquarius/chinese new year actually aligns with the calendar version of imbolc and the solar version is days later. (i go over the differences in solar, lunar and calendar holy dates in my gate calls).

add to this the fact that in the gene keys the only key in the codon ring of origin is when the sun transits 2’00-7’37 aquarius, which is the start codon from which all of life springs- considered to be the Prime Emanation and Source Code. and we see an interesting correlation here- a solar gateway, a lunar gate way, chinese new year and gene key new year all occur in the sign of aquarius- the water bearer or cup bearer.

(i talk about this sign in my webinar Anchoring the Age of Aquarius- which is available on demand here- https://divineharmony.com/astrology-blog/anchoring-the-age-of-aquarius-webinar-on-demand/ )

the water bearer is seen as male today but it used to be female- and is the Grail Maiden. you can see this maiden in the tarot imagery of the major arcana star card- the card associated with aquarius which has a name woman with two cups or jugs one pouring water into water, the other pouring water onto land. above her is an 8 pointed star symbolizing Sirius (tune into my masterclass on Sirius- the Spiritual Sun of our sun here- https://divineharmony.mykajabi.com/offers/BZJY638m/checkout) and around Sirius you see the 7 starts of the pleiades forming a vague symbol of a cup or bowl holding the Sirius star- with one of the 7 stars forming the stem.

the Grail symbol is one of deep and profound imagery. there is the Holy Grail which symbolize the Divine Feminine, the Soul, the cup that Christ drank from and the cup that collected his blood while on the cross. there are 3 Grails in the body (i teach this in-depth in my Embodied Astrology course)- the grail in the head (grail of wisdom), the grail of the heart (grail of Love) and the grail in the womb or hara (grail of power). to bear the grail is to be in service to the Divine Feminine, to Spirit, to awen- the Source of all inspiration. it’s a sacred honor to be a Grail Bearer- male, female or non binary. we all have the capacity to bear the Grail – but it requires that we do deep shadow work to clear and release what blocks us from being empty vessels/channels for this frequency to come through.

i was contemplating why the chinese new year would be during aquarius season and i had this aha- moment. the solar year starts with the sun moving into capricorn (winter solstice) as that is the lowest point of the sun in it’s cycle and after standing still (solstice means sun-stands-still) it starts to rise again and it is the rebirth of the sun. the lunar year is always going to start with a new moon (new moons are new beginnings)- and the new moon in aquarius is the other saturn ruled sign (capricorn and Aquarius are ruled by saturn, uranus is contemporary ruler of aquarius). before we had the technology to see uranus, Neptune and pluto- saturn was seen as the last visible planet and gatekeeper to the Great Beyond. the opposite of capricorn and aquarius are cancer and leo- the only two signs ruled by the moon and sun and the time of the highest point of the sun (summer solstice/litha) and mid summer (lughnasadh). so the new year (solar and lunar) starts during the time that the sun is traveling through signs that are opposite the time of the height of the power of the sun.

also interesting to note that aquarius houses an important fixed star altair (just shy of 2 aquarius)- contemporarily the eagle but more anciently the vulture (and a symbol of the primordial Mother to the ancient egyptians) and we also have a powerful stellar mass black hole Cygnus X-1 at 14 aquarius that beams extra-galactic rays towards our blue planet, the strongest X-ray sources seen from earth. it;s a collapsed star about 7,200 light years away and there are. cygnus is the swan constellation and the heart of the swan involves 2 stars gravitationally locked with each other- one of which is a MEGA STAR, 40 times larger than our sun and 300,000 times brighter.

being that we are FULLY IN the Age of Aquarius according to the ancient way of calculating ages by looking at the constellation rising before the sun on spring equinox (more on that in my Age of Aquarius webinar)- all this aquarius action and this VERY TIGHT imbolc/lunar new year portal is profound!!!!

now onto the actual new moon chart! ;)

this new moon at 12’20 Aquarius is conjunct saturn (the sun/saturn conjunction is on february 4th) and square uranus (the sun/uranus square is january 30th)- activating the waning saturn/uranus squares of 2021. yes the exact squares are over, but the planets are still traveling close enough together that when a planet triggers one it will trigger the other days or weeks later. last year’s new moon in aquarius on february 11th was right before the first square on february 17th- this new moon is after the last square on december 23rd. these aquarius new moons bookend a super powerful transit that dominated 2021.

it’s interesting to note that saturn and uranus are the ancient and contemporary rulers of aquarius. last year was dominated by the class between the old (saturn) and the new (uranus), the past and the future, tradition and change. it was like being between a rock and a hard place. what needed to change was clear but the resistance to change and stuck energies were at odds with it. this year we have uranus conjunct the north node (end of july) which means URANUS DOMINATES. this new moon in aquarius kicks off those uranian energies and is the lunar cycle in which the USA will have it’s first PLUTO RETURN (more on that here- https://divineharmony.com/astrology-blog/usa-pluto-return-transformation-of-a-nation-2022/). suffice it to say- we are revving up in gear and moving into new territory quickly.

we also have this new moon sextile chiron- activating one of the other major transits of 2021- the saturn/chiron sextile. in astronomy chiron links saturn and uranus with his egg shaped orbit- sometimes he is closer to saturn, sometimes uranus- and he links the last visible with the first invisible planet. with chiron involved this brings focus not just to the changes that need to happen (uranus) but also the healing we need to work towards in order to open up to the new.

this new moon is also semisextile venus who is now direct (as of the new moon, she stations direct january 29th)- reminding us that the FEMININE NEEDS TO LEAD (our receptive, intuitive, feeling oriented selves). yet the venus has been conjunct pluto 3 times and she is in the sign before aquarius- which is the last sign in the lunar year and about completion and endings. when venus and mars align at 0’01 aquarius on march 5th- a HUGE new cycle of the Divine Feminine will be coming in- as well as a new energy and frequency of balance of masculine and feminine within and without. keep in mind that with pluto the roto rooter activating both venus and mars before this conjunction- we have MAJOR ENDINGS of whatever is not serving our evolution and/or holding us back from our growth.

the only retrograde planet in the new moon chart is mercury and he will station direct 2.9 days after the new moon. after he stations direct ALL PLANETS ARE DIRECT for 84 days- almost 3 months of DIRECT FORWARD MOTION. how is that for revving up in gear and moving quickly into the future!?!

as the day after this new moon is chinese new year- we are moving into the year of the WATER TIGER. we cycle through the 12 signs every 12 years- but there are also 5 elements- so the unique blend of chinese sign and element happens once ever 60 years. the last water tiger year was 1962- and that new moon in aquarius had SEVEN planets in aquarius- all square to neptune. that new moon is often referred to as the kicking off of the age of aquarius (more on that in my webinar).

this is a LONG write up- as there is a lot that needs to be shared but i will wrap it up with one final thing to point out in the new moon chart. uranus is trine venus and mars and sextile jupiter- with the jupiter/uranus sextile coming up on february 17th. so uranus is interacting with 4 of the 5 personal planets- infusing them with revolution, rebellion and change. if you have not read my blog about URANUS IN TAURUS- the Revolution of Embodiment you can read that here- https://divineharmony.com/astrology-blog/uranus-in-taurus-the-embodiment-revolution/ the key to this age and cycle is not to go up and out, or use artificial intelligence to separate soul from body, or remove consciousness and put it in a computer. this is about activating full consciousness in the body we have that is our temple. not about going up and out but about fully coming down and in.

i leave with the Star Sparks degree for this new moon (read full text below)- entitled “A lidless granite sarcophagus. It is empty.” this degree meditation is teaches that “Death has no sting when we stay with life in an open and free fashion. We empty the grave of its terrifying power if we can find in our lives that which endures in the thick of change and be with this so lightly that it works its magic through us without our getting in the way by outer conscious mental process.” WOW! in this degree we can get “closer to the state of being free amidst all the apparent limitations that surround us”. “what is most tortuous here is the way in which the collective keeps snarling us back into yet another example of buying into limitation and struggle”. “The answer to this question of destiny is limitless times. For here we are unimpressed by the old tapes, even when we fall for them. We’re just playing it out, showing it can be done. When you are hot on the track of living in eternity, what’s one more illusion or setback? You do have all the time in the world truly.”

this is the frequency we are in and moving into and through more deeply. freedom is not found without- it is found within. and when you find it- the game changes!

blessings on your path of awakening and embodiment…

Aquarius 13 A lidless granite sarcophagus. It is empty

Death has no sting when we stay with life in an open and free fashion. We empty the grave of its terrifying power if we can find in our lives that which endures in the thick of change and be with this so lightly that it works its magic through us without our getting in the way by outer conscious mental process.

The carrying through on such a way of life is immensely difficult. We are magnetized toward tests and trials of every kind. For we must be sure that we can operate free of karmas and fixed worlds and death-like routines and syndromes. The only way to get there in this world is to check yourself out endlessly and refine the capacity to the utmost.

What is wonderful here is how resistant we are in coming back from each latest trial with an abounding sense of possibilities. We are always getting closer to the state of being free amidst all the apparent limitations that surround us. And if we can do this, we can spread our example far and wide.

What is most tortuous here is the way in which the collective keeps snarling us back into yet another example of buying into limitation and struggle. We are so adept in throwing off what no longer means anything to us. Yet how many times can we take on the world and its way and still be free as a breeze, un-scarred, somehow virginal?

The answer to this question of destiny is limitless times. For here we are unimpressed by the old tapes, even when we fall for them. We’re just playing it out, showing it can be done. When you are hot on the track of living in eternity, what’s one more illusion or setback? You do have all the time in the world truly.
