A New Moon in Aquarius - So Much More Than it Appears


During the dark, balsamic moon phase, a shift arrived as the moon entered Aquarius yesterday evening @ 8:33 PM Pacific. From the point when the signs changed from restrictive Capricorn into more open and progressive Aquarius, folks began to anticipate and intuit that there are some massive changes ahead. As I will discuss below, the Chinese Year of the Horse begins tomorrow January 31st. Today's New Moon occurs @ 1:38 PM Pacific/4:38 PM Eastern in the sign of aviation on many levels, electric waves, migratory birds, space weather, esoteric thought, freedom revolution and a whole lot more occurs at 1:38 PM Pacific/4:38 PM Eastern. By the late afternoon/evening, we may feel like clearing the decks, jettison those old and tired ideas and eliminate the dead wood to make room for a type of Novus ordo seclorum - no I am not talking about the infamous New World Order. For many the effects of the moon actually occulting the Sun may appear to bring on that dreaded totalitarian state. Since Mercury is at the last degrees/minutes and Void of Course in Aquarius (shifting into Pisces on January 31st) close to Neptune in Pisces, movies about conspiracy realities have come out of the closet and to be seen as full fledged documentaries. The Horse has been released from his stall so to speak and too many people are learning the truth about TPTB and their efforts to control via surveillance, propaganda, weather modification and more. And now a word from Chemtrails Watch where more than enough proof has surfaced of Geoengineering Projects - from 2012 
But what are they anyway? Here is an answer that might surprise you, take you into an insidious futuristic version of Star Wars.
We are dealing with Star Wars. It involves the combination of chemtrails for creating an atmosphere that will support electromagnetic waves, ground-based, electromagnetic field oscillators called gyrotrons, and ionospheric heaters. Particulates make directed energy weapons work better. It has to do with “steady state” and particle density for plasma beam propagation.

More technology ala Mercury-Sun in Aquarius sextile the longer term Uranus transit in Aries, ground breaking sign - a pioneer.  Astrologically since even though Mercury (out thinking process/communications)  is moving into Pisces on January 31st and will temporarily be out of orb of a square with Saturn/ Except  on Feb. 6th. the cosmic messenger, Mercury appears to stand still and move backwards.  Then on Feb. 18th. another exact square between Mercury in fixed, eccentric Aquarius and Patient Saturn in Scorpio. The first Square was on January 25th. one day after an initial Mercury-Mars trine - with the Warrior Ares/Mars now in a sign related to decision making, Libra - a card player.

This is also a time of great spiritual opportunity when signs are everywhere. Per example the January 30th. New Moon Chart for the UK. London specifically has Libra rising @ 3 degrees - "A group of young people sit in spiritual communion around a campfire." And in February it will be this feeling of unity, community, local gatherning, from concerts to dancing to flash mobs to Twitter gatherings, smoke ins, love fests,  to  sweat lodges to building cob structures, planting fields, digging swales together and more that will change things.  - you got the picture.  In the chart below, Mars is in the first house near Vesta, an aggressive placement yet toned down in Libra - Make love not war.
At Mid-Heaven is Cancer and Jupiter is placed expanding topics involving parents, families, nurturing, cooking, restaurants, hotels will be prominently facing in the news. Along side obscene profits, extreme
With a powerful opposition to Pluto in Capricorn and Venus in the 4tth. land, water, resources, family cultural traditions

Since the Nodes cross with N. Node in Scorpio on 2nd House 
Financial debt and death of those two JPM bankers represented by the opposing S. Node in Taurus in the 8th.  but the big breaking news 

A VIOLENT and destructive storm is hurtling across the Atlantic and will smash into Britain tomorrow.

Yes this is hidden on the IC. @ 5 Capricorn which squares the Ascendant in Libra with Pluto -Venus 
also adding to weather conditions in the 4th. Only hidden for those that have no eyes to see. 
Note that Mercury, the trickster is located in the 5th. house relating to entertainment, concerts, gambling, speculation, the arts, children and theater. 

 Today's excitement continued to be generated with this combination of Moon-Uranus. As always with Uraanian alignments and this one will be unique adding to more novel conditions. For weather watchers it has been unique to say the least since rain finally came to the SF. Bay Area while the entire Western United States is feeling the power of Winter Storm Maximus which is Bringing Snow, Ice to Over a Dozen States, Including Drought-Plagued California Since Mercury (day to day weather planet is at the last degree and minutes of Aquarius and Void of Course, nervous energies will be building along with unusual conditions in worldwide weather. Since Mercury will not quite reach a conjunction with Neptune in Pisces till March 22nd.due to retrograde motion on Feb. 6th. , fantasies, creative imagination, dreams and fears will all be blending. In fact Mercury re-enters Aquarius on February 12th. right before the Sun trines Mars in Libra so the call for individual courage, equality and pulling ourselves out of the darkness will be intense.

When the Sun-Moon-Mercury are in Aquarius and square Saturn (the ancient ruler) and with Saturn continuing in the sign of shadows, extremes, desires and obsessions. We have seen a number of comments about the now infamous Katy Pery Grammy's Performance. In fact Katy born a Scorpio on Oct. 26, 1984 with Pluto/Sun/Mercury/Saturn all in the sign of the occult Scorpion also has Moon-Venus-Uranus-Neptune all in the sign of deliberate sensationalism, Sagittarius. In fact in many ways Katy is a poster child for the generation born with Pluto in Scorpio always ready to push the envelop into the extremes of symbolism, mostly dealing with darkness, death and even Satanic innuendo.

The Black or Blue Horse
The horse pictured alongside  is an image from the 32 foot high statue of a stallion which greets visitors to the notorious Denver Airport. Whether or not it is the Pale Horse from Revelations is debatable but is is both ominous and disturbing... It is obvious that Katy is attempting to connect the Black Horse she rides in her music video with one of the Four Horseman of the Apocalypse. From Revelations: "When the Lamb opened the third seal, I heard the third living creature say, "Come and see!" I looked, and there before me was a black horse! Its rider was holding a pair of scales in his hand. Then I heard what sounded like a voice among the four living creatures, saying, "A quart of wheat for a day's wages, and three quarts of barley for a day's wages, and do not damage the oil and the wine!" The third horseman rides a black horse and is generally understood as Famine and with both Pluto-Venus close together in Capricorn opposing Jupiter now in the sign most connected to food, domesticity and families there are eerie, supernatural implications.

2014 Year of the Wooden Horse
 Perhaps and even more significant symbol in her performance is the allusion to the start of the Year of the Green, Wooden Horse in the Chines Calendar. Tomorrow January 31st. is the start of the new cycle as the Year of the Water Serpent ends. Per Raymond Lo: "The Year of the Horse, 2014, in the Hsia calendar, is symbolized by two elements – with wood sitting on top of fire. According to the cycle of birth and destruction, which governs the inter-relationship between the elements, wood produces fire and so they are on the productive cycle and have supportive relationship. Normally such mother and child supporting elements means harmony. However, it seems such theory may not be able to apply in 2014 as the nature of the elements are not that peaceful. Yang wood symbolizes a tree which is stubborn and sticking to principles, hard to compromise, and Horse is very powerful elements of fire energy bringing explosions and gun fire..." From my perspective as a Western astrologer, the ongoing Cardinal Cross triggered by Mars retrograde in Libra starting March 1st. (difficult to reach agreements) till July 2014 and opposing Uranus and in April Venus in fierce Aries, a dangerous time is ahead. By February, I expect that international conflicts and struggles could lead to fierce fighting and battles. Add in Jupiter in protective, water sign Cancer opposing Pluto and crossing Warrior Mars and explosive, technological Uranus and the Year of the Horse won't be dull that's for sure.

 Most likely with Uranus so prominent in this lunation and the rest of the year, technologies, are will continue to be a double edged sword having evolved into entities way beyond our control. For a quick preview of today's New Moon which sextiles ruler Uranus here is a chart set for 1:38 PM Pacific in San Jose, California (techno center of Silicon Valley) Notice Gemini is rising @ 23 degrees - Three fledglings in a next up high in a tree. A Sabian symbol which speaks of a time to get ready for independence, sibling rivalry and working at getting along. Gemini connects to communications It is interesting that the San Jose council proposed to allow residents to voluntarily offer police access to their private video surveillance camera recordings. Mercury ruler of this chart infers prescient and important news sits close to Mid-Heaven At Mid-Heaven a dream-like bizarre, wacky and super musical Neptune in Pisces near Mercury will continue to bring us weird news stories and far out fantasy. Below is the new moon chart set for San Jose, California.

Today's primary astronomical/astrological features include a Super Moon. Astrologically this is a New Moon filled with the promise convergence of energies in unpredictable Aquarius. Not only do we have a time when the Sun and Moon meet but an event marking a single calendar month which harbors two supermoons, something we won't see again until January 2018.. Just to make today even more unique, this New Moon is a Lunar Transit or occultation of the Sun only seen from space. Per On Thursday, Jan. 30th, the Moon will eclipse the sun for almost 2.5 hours. You have to be in space to see it. NASA's Solar Dynamics Observatory s set to record the "lunar transit," which begins at 1331 UTC or 8:31 EST. Below is a video simulation of this event as seen from space when approximately 90% of the sun will covered

 Alpheratz and Pegasus In conclusion, we see multiple forces and implications on the move with this novel new moon which in the end will reflect the Aquarian need for freedom of thought and movement. It turns out that both Venus and Mars (those two planets representing desire and action) are in paran/alignment with fixed star Alpheratz in charts set for the West Coast of the USA. Alpheratz is a double star found in Andromeda, the Chained Woman's head. Alpheratz is derived from the Arabians' Al Surrat al Faras, aka "the Horse's Navel", is a star formerly associated with Pegasus,the winged horse. Going further with this symbolism connecting the year of the Horse and today's Aquarian Gateway We see that Hevelius, Firmamentum, 1690, depicted the head of Aquarius (Ganymedes) encroaching onto the heads of the two horses; Pegasus and Equuleus.
The mythological significance here relates to the compensation of two horses given to the father of Ganymedes, King Laomedon of Troy, by Zeus for abducting his son. I expect that forces of reform, revolution and liberation will be flying high with Alpheratz and fighting abduction of any kind. . Per Robson with Mars - Alpheratz brings a Sharp energetic mind to business success and with Venus, a more contemplative life, good health, fond of pleasure and society and fortunate for speculation.

Full Moon in Cancer with the the Wolf at the Door


Another Wolf Moon appears overhead tonight almost full and just separating from Jupiter (exact @ 9:06 PM PST) when generosity and cheer adds to abundance. Now the next stop for Luna is a rather restless and edgy square to Mars on the early AM of Wednesday, January. 15th. By now we all now that this Full Moon in January was appropriately known as a Wolf Moon by the Algonquin tribes from New England to Lake Superior. This name reflected the wolf packs who howled hungrily outside Indian villages while the ground was frozen and the air frigid.

Speaking of frozen and the effects of the recent polar vortex, this recent event in Norway speaks of some of the extreme climate which have besieged our planet in early 2014. This rare and recent incident told of the sea freezing so fast that it instantly killed thousands of fish. Norwegian public radio (Google-translated) reports on the instant dead of thousands of fish in a bay in the island of Lovund, Norway. An air temperature of -7.8 C (17.96 F) combined with a strong east wind froze the sea water instantly, trapping and killing the fish you can see in this fishapocalyptic image:

Last year's January Full Moon wasn't till January 26th. even though it was in the royal sign of Leo, it was still a Wolf Moon. This year of 2014, it will be Cancer, the Great Mother for 1-15-2014. Since Jupiter flowed into the sign of home, hearth and family on June 25th. it also seems that nature has been under greater  attack.  Those accumulated strikes have come  with the planet of expansion and ethics, Jupiter thrust into a T-Square with the chaotic Uranus-Pluto waxing square. In what might seem like another of those ground hog day events as the doomsday clock is firmly set at 5 minutes to midnight symbolizing humans' destruction — for the year 2013, scientists announced today (Jan. 14). With Mars T-Square this combination and transiting in Libra a sign related to fairness and legislation, toxic waste (Pluto) is now going unchecked. In fact relating to the Koch brothers and the Freedom industry mess in West VA.,the US House passed a bill raving much needed toxic waste laws. As West Virginians were learning Thursday of a devastating chemical spill in the Elk River that has rendered water undrinkable for 300,000 people, the US House of Representatives was busy gutting federal hazardous-waste cleanup law.

 Despite man's best efforts to screw things up, Mother Nature is not sitting back as we see with the quakes shaking Puerto Rico, after Sunday's 6.4 tremor set things off or on the West Coast today's sudden 4.4 shaker in Fontana, CA. Actually as dramatic as volcanoes, floods, quakes or tsunamis seem, I would be more worried about the food supply and clean water with Jupiter in Cancer opposing Pluto (exact again on January 31st.) Already in Florida, the iconic source or orange juice a new threat emerges and it isn't the frost as a tree cancer threatens the orange trees. About 80 percent of America’s orange juice comes from Florida orange trees. And now roughly half of them have tree cancer. If this keeps up, the $9 billion citrus industry in Florida might have to start making your morning OJ from fruit that’s been genetically modified to withstand bacteria. Yeah you read it right, it sounds like Monsanto, that corporate demon who endeavors to control and profit off Gaia's bounty has designs on orange groves. In case you missed it this recent Supreme Court ruling per Mars T-Square Venus (Capricorn) and Jupiter (Cancer) handed Monsanto a victory over farmers on GMO seed patents..

Finally  a small but bright, deeply feeling Cancer Moon will opposes the Sun in pedantic Capricorn @ 8:52 PM. Pacific Time. In contrast to the perigee Super Moon on January 1st. this apogee moon is as  much as 14% smaller and 30% dimmer than other full Moons of 2014.  Full Moons are always turning points, the culmination of two weeks of massive climactic change since the last new moon on January 1st. Yes this lunation represents critical junctures for all of us especially those born with Aries, Cancer, Libra and Capricorn Sun or Moon being the first of 2014. The moon is full @ 26 degrees Cancer (the Summer sign) framed by this Sabian Symbol: "Guests are reading in a library of a luxurious home." Briefly this image relates to indulgence, superficiality but also to sharing...with obvious references to the elite or people of privilege residing at an extensive, castle-like home where even controversy can follow per Downton Abbey where lives change like the seasons via passage of time (Cronus). With this full moon, women are taking on new leadership rolls (Venus retro. in Capricorn) not just in the world of "opiated" entertainment but in real world of average folks.

On the other side of the solstice axis is winter with the Sun @ 26 degrees Capricorn represented by this Sabian: "A nature spirit dancing in the mist of a waterfall." This symbol tells of carefree nymphs, dryads or faires who effortlessly rising above or perhaps evading problems. The theme of nature is powerful with the Capricorn Sun at this degree which can also relate to embracing a more escapist attitude even fearing the shadows of humanity's failure as a steward of mother nature's domain.

 Below is a chart set for January 15, 2014 @ 11:52 PM. in DC. has Mars rising @ 18 degrees Libra Justice will be done, peace at any price with this fateful Sabian:
"Two people who have to give an accounting of their acts before a tribunal of society." All the facts need to come to the light as terms seem unacceptable to a jury of their peers. Severe judgements could be coming to some important political figures not just scapegoats like Gov. Christie. Venus is the ruler of this chart and retrograde in Capricorn and sits at the IC Imum Coeli (Latin for "bottom of the sky") Most obviously Venus relates to women, fashion, the arts, entertainment, music and other social pleasures but also to what is associated with both peace (soft aspects) and with war - especially when a war is being fought to right wrongs or change a balance of power With Mercury now intercepted in the sign of shocking news, Aquarius and trine Mars and in the 4th. house which relates to nationalism of course but covers a broader scope including agriculture, crops, land, houses, real estate, coal mines the weather expect some sweeping progressive change. Also with libra rising, there will also be negotiations with a foreign power who is hostile per Aries on the cusp of the 7th. house.

The chart above is also highlighted by the Moon and Jupiter at the Mid Heaven (top of the chart) representing the masses, our population from commoners to the influential but especially women in general.  In fact this Cancer moon relating to caretaking is square both Ceres and Vesta now in Libra found in the first house. Ceres representing nurturing/food and Vesta symbolizing a devoted effort are in the house relating to interior affairs, urban population, domestic affairs, general and physical conditions.  To this list I am adding health conditions since the many times over helpful Cancer moon is also in a sesquiquadrate or a  135° aspect to Chiron the wounded healer. Sesquiquadrates reveal stress and the need for adjustment.  Chiron is of course in Pisces near Juno relating to potential disease out breaks and this recent story about FEMA seeking bio-disposal for 1000 tent hospitals brings up lots of questions.
  Perhaps this is just another product of over active imaginations or hysteria but still with all that is happening the first part of 2014 including the Mars retrograde starting March 1st which keeps the forces of swift change spinning around the Uranus-Pluto waxing squares it is best to be vigilant. 

 Most importantly  the moon in this Full Wolf Moon chart is definitely afflicted which brings up issues around food constraints, famine, water pollution and birth control will be on for the next two weeks till we move toward the Aquarian New Moon on January 31st. Remember that this is the last Full Moon for the year of the water snake, when not all the cards are on the table. Then on the 31st of this month a whole new cycle begins with a much more upfront time period framed by the Green Horse or in the case of revelations one of the four horsemen corresponding to the Four Cardinal Signs now in play big time for the first half of 2014 with Mars continuing in Libra till July 2014.
