Less than 24 hours after the Sun moves into the sign of Aquarius, the Moon is full and fully eclipsed. The Moon is conjunct the North Node, giving us a reset of our path forward. January 20th at 9:16 PM, PST, with the Sun at 00 degrees Aquarius conjunct the South Node and the Moon at 00 degrees Leo, conjunct the North Node, the Sun and Moon join two corners of the ongoing grand square. Mercury and Pluto are pulled into conjunction with the Sun and South Node by square from Pallas, the third corner of the square, Uranus being the fourth. This marks a shift to intuitive navigation, transformation of mind and employment of wisdom if we are to end up in sync with the reset of energies in progress. The entire eclipse of the Moon will be visible in all of North and South America, parts of the Pacific Ocean, all of the Atlantic, Britain, western Spain and Portugal and all of Iceland, Greenland, and parts of northern Scandinavia, including most of the Arctic Circle. This kind of total eclipse can result in a 180 degree turn from the direction we thought we were going. Dust may take a while to settle. Fed by Uranus as one corner of the grand square in which the Moon/North Node are involved, more change is imminent. Old foundations and static conditions we have become accustomed to continue to crumble. With Mercury conjunct the South Node for the eclipse, the Moon and North Node are also cut off momentarily, from the energies of the mind, entering the realm of feeling, reflection, and instinct, without analysis. We can consider it a reality check of sorts.
Chiron and Ceres each trine the Moon/North Node eclipse. A sense of wholeness, removal of obstacles, nurturing and compassion flow easily to the eclipse, catalyzing these qualities in the energies of the reset. Our new path is infused, catalyzed and facilitated to carry these characteristics.
All major planets and many asteroids continue direct motion. On the day of the eclipse, Venus is approaching conjunction with Jupiter, separated by only one degree. Both are novile the Sun, South Node, Mercury and Pluto, showing a completion of a new kind of consciousness, infused with love, beauty and values that are larger than life. Venus and Jupiter are exactly conjunct January 22nd at 16 degrees Sagittarius, as one corner of a grand trine with Mars and the Moon. A full Moon is always a peak experience, but the energies of the lunar cycle always fall into place on the back side of the full. This conjunction colors the outcome of what we have in motion this cycle.
The Sun and Moon have moved out of orb and are no longer involved in the continuing grand square by the 22nd. The Nodes continue to pin the square, with the South Node, the Akash, conjunct Mercury and Pluto, parting and approaching respectively. Pluto and the South Node will be exactly conjunct for a transformation of our collective past, on April 4th, but we are feeling it now in the grand square, by mutual aspect.
The back side of this full has us making a lot of adjustments with inconjuncts between the Moon and Pluto, the North Node and Vesta, Juno and Pallas, Uranus and Ceres, Pallas and Chiron. There are no proper Yods involved, but many adjustments and multi-faceted forced focus. Emotional body aberrations, ownership of our path, wisdom in relationships, a shift to compassion, and wisdom involved in which wounds we decide to address are all under pressure to be looked at and resolved.
By the 29th, Mercury catches the Sun at 09 degrees Aquarius, sextile a parting conjunction of Ceres and the Moon. Another infusion of compassion and nurturing running through the mass consciousness in a visceral, emotional, active and dynamic way as The Divine Feminine, The Mother principle, makes her presence felt and penetrates our minds and consciousness. Three interlocking Yods dominate the sky that day. One to Juno from Pallas and Venus, one to the North Node from Venus and Vesta. and one to Venus from the North Node and Juno. Clearly, Venus is the fulcrum for the predestined events that set in motion required adjustments and forced focus on wisdom, relationships and how we will get where we’re going. Love has always been the glue that holds our molecules together, beauty has always been evidence of the Creative Source that runs through all, and values based on both are, collectively, the common thread in the focus and adjustments being made.
On its way to conjunct the Sun for the new Moon on February 5th, the Moon will conjunct Jupiter on January 30th, Venus on the 31st, Saturn February 1st, Pluto early on the 2nd, and the South Node later the same day. Hold the focus through the bumpy emotional ride, culminating in the Moon joining one corner of the ongoing grand square that is still with us. We are reshaping the way forward.
