The Moon in Aquarius decan 1. The needy embryonic Moon is not comfortable in a decan that is so much about cutting the umbilical cord to freedom. It is also one that will tend to rebel against its mother country and feel at odds in whatever home they find themselves. The Moon here is continually searching for the ‘Promised Land’ but rarely finds it. This New Moon Aquarius 1 is so idealistic, that it finds squaring its high expectations with earthly domestic reality extremely hard.
New Moon 27/28 January 2017 at 8º Aquarius Decan 1 Aspects: None. Fixed Star: Alpha Tucana In the Toucan.
However, by the end of the month any alienation that is felt matures into great self-sufficiency. The ability to look after oneself then is in turn bestowed upon the various waifs and strays that this New Moon can attract. At this time we might find ourselves providing temporary accommodation for those making difficult life transitions. A cosmic home is found amongst other outsiders.
Fixed Star Alpha Tucana
At 9º Aquarius we have Alpha Tucana in the comical looking Toucan. This adds kookiness and a garish mask to the New Moon. Toucans toss objects such as berries in the air and jest around with each other playing ‘catch’. It’s a behaviour that earned them the title of the joker of the forest. Toucans can actually pitch and are said to never miss their target.
This behaviour reflects the focused aim of Sagitta the arrow which is also found in this decan. Toucans use their long sharp beaks to duel with each other much like a fencer. The word bicker comes from beak. The New Moon in Aquarius decan 1 enjoys a good verbal fencing match. This is a great time for political rants. Entertaining though these pundits are, they might be accused of going too far with the vitriol. Toucans are known to be one of the noisiest birds in the forest…
Venus Square Saturn At The New Moon
With Venus square Saturn, love and money will be taken very seriously. Expressing affection could be difficult at this New Moon, not because we don’t want to but because we fear rejection. Personally or in the wider world, potentially difficult clients are best approached by going through a third party or from behind some form of safe shield. Until you feel confident to confront these people directly, take time out to work very, very hard on your self-worth.
