New Moon Solar Eclipse in Aquarius – February 15, 2018 at 1:05 PM PST – Prepared For Life

Thursday, February 15, 2018 we have a new moon in Aquarius which is a solar eclipse at 27 degrees 07 minutes at 1:05 pm PST.  This degree is opposite of last year’s massive total solar eclipse in Leo at 28 degrees August 21, 2017.  This eclipse is about 12 degrees from the south node in Aquarius, and Mercury in Aquarius is about a degree away from the sun and moon in this moment emphasizing the mental energetic impulse in the moment.  Have you experienced a heavy flow of thoughts, thoughts on past relationships or conversations you’ve had that for whatever reason seems to have surfaced in your stream of consciousness? Perhaps there’s something there to reconsider or you might be opening to a new thought on the subject and the conversation reminds you that you are growing away from a point of view you’ve held for some time.  New information has invited you and compelled you to consider something new, so here it is and you get a moment to look once again at how you used to think as you walk into a new paradigm.

The sabian symbol for this solar eclipse is 28 Aquarius which is, “a tree felled and sawed to ensure a supply of wood for the winter.”  This reminds me of having done what you needed to make sure you have what you need, especially in this case warmth in the midst of winter.  It’s an action taken for ensuring what is needed in the future.  Aquarius is future minded and this connects to one making sure their loved ones are prepared for the cold days ahead in winter.  This to me speaks of planning well and knowing what you will need, having foresight.  For those that lack planning, this may be a bumpy time for you.  With Saturn in Capricorn at this time, hard work is part of the everyday theme.  Without a plan, you may find yourself out of resources when you need them most.  Planning and working the plan is important for sustainability, not just your resources you use, but also your own energy!

Venus is in Pisces is applying to a square with Mars in Sagittarius, where artist dreams stand-off with a love for adventure.  Venus is in trine with the Ascendant in Cancer (for those on the west coast) and by element with Jupiter in Scorpio. What comes up for dreamy romance?  Neptune just beyond the midheaven at 13 degrees Pisces is quite the invitation to the dream space or at least a bit of imagination, though with Mars and Neptune in a square it can end with a bitter disillusionment or disappointing betrayal if we’re not careful who we invite in our sacred space.  Pluto in Capricorn at 20 degrees 16 minutes continues his strong arm demand of relinquishing our old paradigms, his wake-up call is rude and long winded, you’ll never look at it the same way again after his visit through Capricorn.  Uranus at 25 degrees Aries 23 minutes is juiced up with extra fire as Mars applies to approaches a trine from Sagittarius this next two weeks.  It may tend to allow things through the open gate you weren’t intending, so be mindful of words and actions that may slip easily during the next three weeks, they are exactly in trine March 11th.

In the spirit of this Aquarian new moon and eclipse I end today’s sharing with this quote about friendship, as Aquarians are known for making and having many friendships, enjoy the day and share your wisdom and love with your friends you meet along the path of life.  I believe if you have a supportive group of friends you have the love capacity to be prepared for most anything.

“Love is friendship that has caught fire.  It is quiet understanding, sharing and forgiving. It is loyalty through good and bad times.  It settles for less than perfection and makes allowances for human weaknesses.”  – Ann Landers
