29 Aquarius 59
You will find the whole article on MargaretWendtSite . This is a weird new moon for sure. But it is also important. Where do you find your inner light? How does it connect with others? How are you connected to other people even if you don't know it? What is your piece? Where do you fit in the cosmos?
Here is a snippet but go to the link for the whole article.
Happy Lent! And Happy Chinese New Year to all of you! May you have a great Wood Sheep Year.
This is a weird new moon.
It is a brand new moon but it is at the last degree of Aquarius. In fact two minutes after the new moon launches the Sun and the Moon move into Pisces. Technically, it is an Aquarius New Moon at 29 degrees but it is being influenced by Pisces. The last five months have been auspicious with four new moons at Zero degrees (October through January) and then the last two at 29 degrees (March 20th will be at 29th degree of Pisces). These new moons highlight the knowledge and power of being at the very beginning of a journey and the knowledge and security of being at the end of the journey. When you start a road trip you are excited with anticipation. When you are in the final miles of a road trip you are excited that your journey is completing. Having a new moon at the final degree of a sign is a little bit like starting a journey on the edge between a desert and a jungle. Two entirely different terrains and one journey connects them. We are going into a new land. Like a boy scout we should always be prepared.
So, what is the focus of this, our second Aquarius New Moon?
When we launched the first Aquarius lunar cycle 29 days ago we were finding our tribe of like-minded people, we were focused on finding our brilliance and our weirdness. We found our own inner beautiful weird compass. Great. Now we begin another 29 days and we should once again, not be afraid of our brilliance and weirdness and our ‘tribes’. But what is the point of being brilliant and weird and finding our tribe if it does not elevate us? With Pisces lapping on the shores of this new moon we need to ask bigger questions like how does our brilliance, weirdness and oddness help connect us to the Universe? How are we finding our place in the cosmos?
Pisces knows that we are apart of a much bigger picture. There is something far greater going on. We need to pay attention to synchronistic events. Look at all coincidences that come up in the next 29 days. You should continue to be brilliant and weird but not lose sight that you are apart of a bigger story.
And how do your friends or your tribe connect to this bigger picture? Recently, I had a friend of mine win an award for her writing. I could not have been more excited if it had been me. And in fact I found myself getting misty when I heard the news. I was standing in the market when I got the text. Right there at the cash register I welled up. And I realized that I had been in a tribe drought. None of my friends have had a really good thing happen to them in the last few years. I didn’t even realize it until I felt something swell inside me. Pride for my friend. Pride for my tribe. Pride for “us”. To be fair, I am a bit numb to marriages or the birth of babies and of course they are happiness and depending on the circumstances they too can elevate a group. But this felt different and at that moment I thought about our second Aquarius New Moon. What does it mean to be connected to a larger group? How do your peeps elevate you? How do you elevate them? How do the actions of others put wind in your sails? And how are we connected to one another in a cosmic sense?
If the last Aquarius new Moon asked us who is our tribe? Maybe this new moon we ask ‘how is our tribe doing?” If we were asking to find our brilliance and weirdness maybe now we ask to use both in a way that connects with the bigger, hidden world. Use this 29-day cycle to send beeps out to the universe and see what comes back. What person or situation shows up? Maybe some of our tribe is out in the wilderness looking for us. Maybe we hold a missing piece to a puzzle. Maybe there is a person holding a missing puzzle piece for you. See who pops up in your life in the next 29 days and see how it all fits in a cosmic way.
