When the Moon conjoins with the Aquarius Sun at 2:20 am EST Sunday, they will make more aspects than you can shake a stick at. Because of that legion of associations, and also because a New Moon symbolizes a beginning, the implied question this weekend is where to begin. Since it will be an Aquarius conjunction of the luminaries, the answer will probably be “with other people.”
Connecting with other people is easier if you know their astrology as well as your own. The most reliable way to do that is to read all of the horoscopes Eric conveniently provides to subscribers week after week. Have you ever wondered how you might get that Scorpio to open up? Or how to get real with that Gemini? A subscription membership to Planet Waves horoscopes can help you make as many connections as the New Moon will when this week draws to a close.
Astrology’s indications are that you should be proactive while both expanding and tending your social circle as the luminaries hook up. That’s because Mars, the cosmic bellwether of recent months, will be breaking the Pisces ice with both Uranus and Jupiter.
The Martian semi-sextile to Uranus just over the Aries point next door will be the warmth you feel. Mars’ square to Jupiter in Gemini will be the heat you need to overcome. So, pay attention when your psychic antenna goes up like an infield fly, lest you miss the hottest thing since sliced tamales.
Speaking of hot, that’s how the lunar nodes have been. Slowly working their way back through the fixed energy fields of Scorpio and Taurus, the perpetually opposing points where the solar and lunar paths cross have been making connections of their own. Since lunar nodes are where eclipses take place, some of those associations have been to eclipses of the past and future, both recent and distant. The trend will manifest in spades this weekend.
Precisely in time with the Aquarius New Moon, the North Node will conjoin, to the degree, the point in Scorpio marked by the most recent solar eclipse back on November 13, 2012. You may remember that one. It was a week after election day in the United States, Mercury was retrograde, and Karl Rove was still looking for where Anonymous hid his cheeks, after losing face and getting spanked by voters.
At the same time, the South Node will closely cuddle with the location of the next solar eclipse, in Taurus, this coming May 9. It gets better.
In addition to being coordinated in time, the Sun and Moon this weekend will make a profoundly precise aspect to the concurrent conjunctions of the opposing lunar nodes. The New Moon squares both nodes (since the nodes are opposed to each other) forming a T-shaped configuration on the zodiac. That aspect is called a T-square, and it means that you will have the opportunity to begin the next lunar cycle in some exciting company, if you do your part to make it happen.
Eclipses are points of departure. T-squares are times of decision. Put them together in fixed signs, and wherever you are, so long as it is ‘with other people’, you will be in the right place. Heck, this combination of Sun, Moon, nodes, place and time is one of those situations where the proverbial mountain is willing to meet you halfway. Just as the Sun square the nodes indicates we are halfway between eclipse cycles, however, you must emulate the Sun and actually move into place.
Mercury, and its manifestation of mind, will help you find that place if you don’t kill the messenger. Tomorrow, the fleetest planet enters the echo (or, ‘shadow’) phase of an all-Pisces retrograde that will commence on Feb. 23. That means you should soon get a call or an e-mail from your past or future. Please don’t ignore it.
It may have already happened. If not, it will probably will happen before the New Moon of March. It could be a message from that person you used to see all the time, and haven’t seen for a long time. It is just as possible for it to be somebody you will spend a lot of time with in the future. Either way, there is likely to be some emotion involved. Please do not wear those emotions as goggles. Please consider the appointments made or kept this weekend to be where the rest of your life can begin.
