New 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 rebel 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.

By the end of the month however, 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 full 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 for those of us who are more Aquarian/Uranian in nature.
new Moon Tarot Card
The tarot card associated with this decan is the five of swords. Its Tarot meaning is not that pleasant, and it is seen as being self-serving or as someone who profits from the anguish of others. Karmically we have to look at this card as this decan having suffered abuse from ruthless actions or even of having been the perpetrator of harsh behaviour. Altair’s Eagle in this decan is a predator so it is not surprising there can be a sharp edge to this decan.
“The Five of Swords can sometimes symbolise the overcoming of inner demons and negative mindsets. The battle fought for personal freedom would not have come quickly or easily….This battle may have been a personal challenge for you and one that others believed you could not succeed in.” ~ teachmetarot.com This new moon will give us the tools to fight deftly with intellect. Swords generally represent swift and decisive thinking.

Moon on ALTAIR 2º “INTEREST IN A STRANGE OR ANCIENT DISCOVERY, DISAPPOINTMENT AND LOSS OVER PROPERTY AND GAIN, SOME PROFIT AND PREFERMENT, FRIENDS BECOME ENEMIES, TROUBLE THROUGH COMPANIES OR PUBLIC AFFAIRS, DIFFICULTIES THROUGH OR MISFORTUNE TO CHILDREN.”  “TO ADMIRE BOLD INDIVIDUAL; TO SEEK TO EMULATE STRONG AND INDEPENDENT WOMEN. HAVING LITTLE REGARD FOR PERSONAL SAFETY IF LOVED ONES ARE THREATENED.”
Altair is found in the constellation of Aquila. Robson says “No astrological influence was suggested for this constellation by the ancients, but it seems to have been associated with the ideas of passion, love and friendship” . We all know Aquarians in general love their friends. Robson goes on to say “It has also been said to give a love of swimming, and to be connected with certain sex irregularities, catamite-pedophilia associations, involving young boys and older men..” Every constellation has a negative side and powerful Aquila is no exception.
Regarding the positive sides, Robson says “It is said to give great imagination, strong passions, indomitable will, a dominating character, influence over others, clairvoyance, a keen penetrating mind and ability for chemical research.” The main star in Aquila is Altair. “It confers a bold, confident, valiant, unyielding, ambitious and liberal nature, great and sudden but ephemeral wealth, and a position of command, makes its natives guilty of bloodshed and gives danger from reptiles.”
