This is the New Moon in Aquarius. WE are THE People – on spin cycle.
And since it is Aquarius, we are connecting.
It is also the Lunar New Year, the Chinese year of the Fire Rooster, awakening us to a new dawn.

Mars enters Aries – January 28 @ 12:39 AM EST
Mercury conjuncts Pluto – January 29

Venus squares Saturn
Venus/Saturn = Sun/Moon
(Moon & Sun are at the Venus/Saturn midpoint; an easy one to spot as Moon & Sun are semi-square Venus and Saturn)
Where IS the love? On a social level, there is dissatisfaction, lack of fulfillment, separation due to not taking responsibilities seriously.
We can see all of this playing out in the headlines. And maybe in our personal lives.

– unexpected sources reveal secret information.

Since Uranus is the ruling planet of the New Moon, it rules the chart. Saturn and Uranus – both rulers of Aquarius – are opposing. Facts and information flip. The spin is lightning fast, leaving us uncertain – what’s real and what’s fake. We spin stories when we think telling an ‘alternate’ reality will get us over, help us win over the other guy – and winning is a MUST. What in ourselves is real, and what is ‘fake?’ The positive use of this experience is to shine a brighter light and gain more self-awareness into our real selves. All to let our real selves shine – brighter.

And there’s the Mercury-Pluto conjunction. It’s been a long-time coming…. Mercury & Pluto came within a degree of a conjunction on December 19 when Mercury made a Retrograde station. Now they’re making that conjunction – at the New Moon in Aquarius, as Mercury approaches a square to Uranus. Information is ready to surface, but there are powerful forces (Pluto) that are motivated to keep it hidden.

Mars is about to enter Aries – January 28 – putting Mars, planet of action, aggression, heat at THE MOST energized degree of the zodiac. This can intensify rage. And the role of the ego.

And here we have the situation – the ego in control. The ego is not automatically all bad. Or something we have to get rid of. Trying to get rid of it will only inflame and activate it. It has 2 functions. It keeps, or tries to, keep us safe. And it does that by being a master strategist. And then there’s the other side – the infant. It wants to have it all its way. And the more it complains, the more it often gets, so it equates complaining with winning.

Since Uranus is the ruling planet of the New Moon, it steers the chart. Saturn and Uranus – both rulers of Aquarius – are opposing creating social disruption. Venus squares Saturn, social attitudes are cold, lacking empathy – and not receiving any either. New styles flip with tradition. New ways revoke old rules. The potential for disagreement is GREAT, increasing the potential for disruption in relationships. Facts and information flip. The spin is fast leaving us uncertain – what’s real and what’s fake. We spin stories when we think telling an ‘alternate’ reality will get us over, help us win over the other guy. What in ourselves is real, and what is ‘fake?’ The positive gain of this experience can be to shine a brighter light and gain more self-awareness into our real selves. All to let our real selves shine -brighter.

What concerns me is the Mercury-Pluto conjunction. It’s been a long-time coming…. They came within a degree of a conjunction on December 19 when Mercury made a Retrograde station. Now they’re making that conjunction – at the New Moon in Aquarius, with ruler Uranus trine Saturn. Information is ready to surface, but there are powerful forces that are motivated to keep it hidden. Mars is about to enter Aries – January 28 – putting Mars, planet of action, aggression, heat at THE MOST energized degree of the zodiac. This can intensify rage. And the role of the ego.

This is the ego in control. The ego is not automatically bad. Or something we have to get rid of. Trying to get rid of the ego will only inflame and activate it. Ego has 2 functions. It keeps, or tries to, keep us safe. And it does that by being a master strategist. And then there’s the other side of the ego – the infant. It wants to have it everything its way. And the more it complains, the more it often gets what it wants, so it equates complaining with winning.

Information can purposely be withheld to create a standoff. And to undermine the power of information. Which may be the intention behind keeping it secret.

The spiritual teachers I read tell us to resist nothing. Yet, at this time, we need to question the concept of resisting. Resisting nothing is also resisting. What we CAN resist is provocative bullying. We can also resist anger, hatred, and keeping our mouths shut when we know we have to speak out – all this is crucial to RESIST.
