This writing is dedicated to our humanity. May we wrap our arms around our brilliant human selves so that we may embrace humanity and our oneness with each other.
The New Moon Solar Eclipse arrives at 27 degrees of Aquarius on Thursday, February 15 at 4:05 PM EST.
During the past week, we have been experiencing the midpoint between the eclipse cycle that has been upon us since the Full Moon Lunar Eclipse in Leo which occurred two weeks ago. Midpoint periods are especially potent times linking the past to the present; while at the same time catapulting us into the future. This eclipse cycle is part of an even greater eclipse cycle in close relationship to The Great American Eclipse in Leo which occurred on August 21rst. Throughout this entire time, we have been preparing for life changing events as pathways to the discovery of our own brilliance. Our greater personal expression and self- fulfillment have been ensnared within a dimension of suffering we have known all too well. We have reached the final conclusion; there is no other option other than to soar beyond the pain of past experience. It is a time of tremendous release.
This New Moon Lunar Eclipse in Aquarius is in exact opposition to the Full Solar Eclipse in Leo of August past, thus bringing us full circle to matters which we can no longer supress or ignore. It is a time of departures, reckonings, life changes, grief, and acceptance; all of which ultimately facilitate realignment to the true and authentic self. Full spectrum vision is activated as we reunite our soul’s inherent longing for the expression of our pure and unfettered essence.
Perhaps it has been a sorrowful time, or a turbulent time, or a remorseful time. Perhaps it has been a time of fearfulness. Whatever the case may be, it has not been an easy time. We have been pedaling backwards in an attempt to control a long past consequential outcome that still may cut to the core. Upon further examination, it dawns upon us that these very circumstances and beloved people have completely served our soul; and we have served theirs. Once we clear away the clouds of our distorted perceptions, we will greet with positive anticipation the luminous reawakening that awaits us.
At this time of excavating the rich interior of our lives, we crawl between the stalactites and stalagmites deeply embedded in the crevices of our psyche. These calcified impressions of disillusionment propel us to confront the pain that has been lying dormant within the confines of our psychic cave. Once we are down and in, there is buried treasure. Our tears have turned to jewels.
Aquarius The Water-Bearer is a fixed masculine air sign. It is the sign of humanity. In order to express our humanity within the larger collective, we must first embrace our own unique humanness. Within the realm of our own human dimension, we may feel flawed, wounded, remorseful, angry, and sorrowful. All of it is bubbling to the surface; a stew of multiple ingredients that only serves to release us if we fully partake of life’s feast. As we digest all that is there, we savor what is both joyful and sorrowful. Through the grace of acceptance, we free ourselves of what no longer serves our higher good or the good of all concerned.
What has been stirring within these turbulent and uncomfortable feelings are the tides of change; rip tides that are pulling us beneath the frothy oceanic depths of emotion. We may feel as though we will be swept out to sea, never to emerge again. The magnetic waters are cleansing us; setting us upon a new uncharted course; one in which our wisdom and compassion will navigate with skill and heart. We will propel to the surface cleansed and renewed. Such has been the experience of the current times as we stride through a most prolific, profound and emotional eclipse cycle. Eclipses portend irrevocable change.
At this juncture, this solar eclipse is propelling us toward complete release. Release the past. Release the present. Release the future. We have within our capability, an opportunity for a newly awakened life shimmering with the brilliance of our being.
As we mount each day with courage, pray that someone else may walk in our moccasins. Pray that we may walk in the moccasins of another. Step by step, we will know each other. Step in step, we will together sail the skies of enlightenment. We will land upon the Aquarian cloud where the Water-Bearer is pouring forth the holy water of our salvation.
Aquarius New Moon Blessings Upon You.

“If our hearts are ready for anything, we can open to our inevitable losses, and to the depths of our sorrow. We can grieve our lost loves, our lost youth, our lost health, our lost capacities. This is part of our humanness, part of the expression of our love for life. ” ~ Tara Brach ~
