Monday, Feb. 8, is Aquarius new moon (19 degrees) and Chinese New Year of the Red Fire Monkey (an imaginative, intelligent and vigilant creature).
Festivals and Feast days are rituals celebrated by all of humanity everywhere around the world, in all cultures and throughout all civilizations.
The Sun enters Aquarius on Wednesday, January 20th. The energies shift and change in our unpredictable world.
This is our last week of Capricorn. The Sun enters Aquarius next Wednesday, January 20th. Then we will enter the Gate of Aquarius, sign of World Servers.
Wednesday is the feast of Epiphany (Greek for “manifestation). Walking with the Three Astrologer Kings (world messengers) since Christmas, following a star (Sirius), seeking a newborn child, on January 6th, 12 days after Christmas, holding gifts of gold, frankincense and myrrh and the 12 signs, we discover the holy one.
The new year of 2016 begins Friday. Adding the numbers 2+1+6 equals nine (9). Nine signifies endings, completion, fulfillment and a major initiation (all year) into a new cycle of learning.
Monday, the 21st, at 8:48 pm (west coast time) the Sun enters Capricorn. The days before solstice (and Christmas) are days of quiet expectancy.
Wednesday, December 9, Pluto opposes Sirius (13 Capricorn/Cancer joining the US Sun, 12 Cancer).
The full moon of Wednesday brings light to Thanksgiving (Thursday) under the Sagittarius Sun and Mercury. Mercury in Sag offers humanity the message (Mercury) of thankfulness and joy (Jupiter).
When we study and apply astrology in our daily lives, we are anchoring new Aquarian thinking. Study, application and use of astrology, understanding its language, builds the new world, the new culture and civilization.
