New Moon January 2015

The New Moon on January 20/21 is at 0º Aquarius and falls in Aquarius Decan 1
Mad Professors & Visionary Upgraders. Decan rulers: Venus & Saturn. Deity: Dike.

“ A visionary Moon intent on chasing new horizons. As we hover above the clouds, our mind is free to catch an innovative idea from the ether. Capricorn’s horns work like antennae, picking up insights brewing in the collective consciousness. This is a futuristic decan at the cutting edge of change yet still has a foot in the past”

New Moon JanuaryThe New Moon falls on fixed star Altair in the constellation Aquila. “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.” [1] The New Moon here is about cutting the umbilical cord to freedom. It may make us rebel against our mother country and feel at odds in whatever home we find ourselves. This Moon spurs us to search for the illusive Promised Land. This is only possible if we are realistic with our ideals. This moon brings a crisis with squaring high expectations with our earthly domestic reality. With this moon the collective learns that any alienation experienced at this time develops into great self-sufficiency if we are willing to find a greater connection to the whole from a higher perspective.

Moon sextile Saturn Despite the harmonious quality of the sextile, Saturn is still Saturn and it can be melancholic. Not only that, but it doesn’t get on so well with the Moon either. Therefore the connection is always a tad sweet and sour. Creatively it is quite an interesting mix for the collective because Saturn adds dynamic edges to the sticky and clingy blancmange-ness of the Moon. We can also use this Moon to sugar-coat any bitterness from a bleak and withholding Saturn.

New Moon January 2015 Meaning

New Moon JanuaryThis Moon has quite a nostalgic flavour in contrast with this decans thrust into the future. At this New Moon we could be drawn to ancient artefacts and antiques. Uranus square Pluto is making a T-square with the modes, so it’s like we are at a crossroads, looking back at the past before we boldly step into the future. This is a New Moon for time travellers! We may have to go backwards before we go forwards because this New moon takes place just a day before Mercury stations retrograde. This is an ideal time to start a revival, renovate old things and resurrect ancient wisdom. You might find a new way to look at an old problem and be able to revitalise a relationship that was on its last legs. Black Moon Lilith opposite Neptune is even tighter than at the last full moon and joined by Mars. Intuition and magic are extra potent yet again, but make sure your boundaries are strong, you don’t want to let the wrong one in!

Suggested items for your altar:

The tarot card 5 of swords, the feather of an Eagle, some copper or lead, sweet and sour prawn balls, an antique ring, a framed portrait of an ancestor, something wrinkly, an old bat, a photo of a rather grand, yet modern duchess (Eg Wallis Simpson.), a violet heart, some coral, Patchouli or Sandalwood incense, the bark of a silver birch, rose quartz, jet, a goats horn, some ivy.

    • Thanks Marina. Happy Birthday to you too, its my solar return chart as well, so good luck to both of us. lol Maybe we should compare notes this time next year. : )

  2. Hi..Altair is not listed in If I want to locate mine any suggestions where I could? Thanks

    • I mentioned for those who needed to draw up a chart.It wont show Altair on the chart, you have to do it yourself. Not everyone has anything on Altair . It needs to be within an orb of around 2 degrees.
      The positions for Altair:
      1900 – 00° Aquarius 22′
      1950 – 01° Aquarius 04′
      2000 – 01° Aquarius 47′

    • Thanks for clarifying..

    • Hi Marina! Awesome post. Does it count if the new moon and Alatir fall within the two degrees on one’s progressed sun? How would this play out then I wonder? hmmmm The progressed sun is in my progressed fifth house chart.


    • Hi Hemisha,

      Altair is a fixed star, not an asteroid,its at 1.47 Aqua and i dont think shows it in the charts :)

    • sorry didn see marinas answer :)

    • Thanks ella for kindly telling me.

  3. This is and gonna be so on point for me right now, New Moon on my ASC, rallying up to face my bullies, i have no other choice, cause i am stuck, caught between a rock and a hard place and i do not like it, good job on reading this one!!!!

    • Sorry for the unsolicited advice Ella, but I have coped with bullies at my University for full one year. I did not like it either but the what worked for me was remembering that they have power over me ONLY if I react. Be calm and strong in front of them – don’t let them see you hasseled. that will cook their goat. Vent in private. Jupiter magic will hopefully help too. Be there for yourself girl..You can survive this and will emerge a better and stronger person. All the best! Sorry for the speech :))

    • thank you so much, it really means a lot at the moment, will heed your advice, best to you 😉

    • This is really good advice for me too…as I have found myself in holiday rental situation where the owners are real bullies & I want to leave asap! Off to check a new place tomorrow…new moon! So am anticipating confrontation when I tell them i’m leaving. I have always hated aggressive confrontation and tended to be flexible and endure the grief or put up with stuff! So guess I am having to learn from this one! Can’t believe how accurate Marina’s description is…must get my chart read! Keep up the fab work guys! Wish me luck everyone…seems one can’t always be nice! :)

  4. 22nd Jan 1962. I’m 50 this year! Aquarius 2 degrees 1’31” Detr. Libra Rising. Leo Moon. It feels like it’s going to be a tumultuous year with change around every corner!

    • Hey Michelle –

      26th January 1962 here. My Saturn is at 3 deg. Aq., 28 deg. Leo Asc and Libra Moon. let’s hope that change is tumultuous but productive and, eventually, positive.

    • Wow! That’s amazing how our Asc and Moon are switched! :) I vacillate between believing the tumultuous changes will be positive and/or scary freakin’ out there crazy! Everything pans out for the best in the end though we only see that “for the best” stuff through the misty eyes of memory mostly. Learning to surf these planetary waves is what its all about eh? :)

    • wow! we’re almost exactly astro twins… sun is 2deg31′ and i’m also turning 50, born in NYC with virgo rising. Please respond if you would like to compare life notes. I met a male astro twin once (within 7 hrs)and curiously enough we had the same name (Michael/Michelle.

    • My goodness! That’s extraordinary to meet ones astro-twin! Feels like it could be significant but that might be because I’m right at the end of my birthday celebrations here! (It’s 11:15pm Daylight Saving Time Eastern Australia here as I write, 22nd January 2012 – which is a Number 1 day in numerology!!! 😉

      And we share the same name too? Good heavens! It WOULD be interesting to compare life notes indeed. I’ve set up a new email address so we can correspond about this. email me at the following: (I’ve written the numbers as words – go numerals though). miksixytwo@mail dot com This should be very interesting!

      OH… HAPPY BIRTHDAY for your tomorrow! :)

  5. Try living the last ten years without the “mark” AKA social security number, surrounded by a whole country of braindead morons who’s blind obedience to a facist corporate dictatorship known as the ” United States Federal corporation has lead America to it’s downfall. Thats what you call ” between a rock and a hard place ”
