A New Beginning? Aquarius New Moon, February 11 2021 — Astrology Musings

The astrological climate continues to suggest great changes are underway.

And one doesn’t have to be a lover of star signs or a psychic to believe we are living in extraordinary times, although the problems we all face are faith and finding some clarity.

Take the Aquarius New Moon on February 11 2021. Here we have half a dozen planets in the fixed air sign (Aquarius), which is striking.

The Old and the New

Now I am one of those astrologers who do not assign Uranus as ruler or even co-ruler of Aquarius. I am a bit of a traditionalist in this respect. There are two sides to Saturn, ruler of both Capricorn and Aquarius. In the cardinal earth sign of Capricorn, Saturn is materialistic, practical, systematic, realistic, all necessary functions of our lives. In his Aquarian mode, however, Saturn’s ‘gravity’ turns to forward planning, practical and realistic thinking in preparation for the future of humanity.

The Uranian side of Aquarius, I contend, is wrong, as is Neptune’s rulership of Pisces and Pluto’s of Scorpio. These three so-called outer planets are invisible to the naked eye, after all, and I agree that they do not represent anything positive at all. They are in fact forces which we should not knowingly dabble with, merely try to overcome and understand.

Hope, Dreams, Wishes

So, accepting this premise, what does all this Aquarian energy mean? Aquarius, traditionally, is the sign of hopes, dreams and wishes — it plans ahead, reflecting the sun at this time of year moving steadily north in preparation for the vernal equinox.

In other words, this New Moon on February 11 represents a new beginning of hope, where our dreams and wishes can be planted like seeds, with full expectation of a flowering, soon. One of the most beautiful aspects of this New Moon is that at the same time, the two benefics are in an almost exact conjunction in Aquarius.

Venus loves Jupiter — but platonically, idealistically in Aquarius

Jupiter, the greater benefic, and Venus, the lesser benefic, enhance one another, creating a beautiful idealistic, platonic vibration, strongly tinged as it is with the Aquarian energy, forecasting peace, justice and freedom for humanity as whole. But we must be patient. This is only a step.

And of course it’s not straightforward either. At this time Mercury, also in Aquarius, is retrograde, so there is a sense that nothing much is happening, or being heard; information is not clear and things keep going wrong. Aquarius demands a free flow of data.

Mercury turns direct on February 20, so we may not begin to see too many signs of a ‘spring thaw’ until around then, or into March as Mercury exits post shadow. Also, the Jupiter/Venus conjunction is loosely square (difficult) both Mars and Uranus in Taurus. The latter has been bringing chaos to financial markets in recent times and will continue to do so, whilst Mars steaming through the same sign has only agitated the situation — none of this to the benefit of humanity, whose hopes are invested in this Jupiter/Venus love-in for all.

Impasse

In other words, there continues to be an impasse between these two forces, those who want to ‘progress’ to that restoration of true human values, against what could be some chaotic ‘manipulation’ which has led us into this crisis in the first place.

We should not forget Saturn’s continued presence in Aquarius either, the true ruler of that sign. Interestingly, he is in challenging aspect to Uranus in Taurus in this chart, perhaps bringing a touch of stability which we might not have had; Uranus is saying ‘I want to turn over the financial markets’, while Saturn is saying ‘slow down!’

Lack of Clarity in America?

The first chart above is set for Washington DC, so might cast light onto the situation in America. I won’t say too much here, except that using my favoured house system, all that Aquarian energy is housed in the eighth house, which in mundane astrology represents other people’s money, i.e. investments, big finance, and thus business — but also secrets.

We should expect to hear a lot about these issues in the coming weeks, especially when Mercury goes direct. However, in this chart, Neptune is also almost exactly conjunct the midheaven, bringing little clarity, confusion and outright befuddlement in governmental issues and circles. The actual truth may be very hard to discern.

Nevertheless, with the Moon being the ruler of this chart (Cancer rising), it makes the importance of this new moon paramount. And what happens in America invariably affects the whole world.

The above chart, set for London and therefore the United Kingdom, shows the Aquarian energies within the sixth house, strongly emphasising public health and work related issues, perhaps also the armed forces. Neptune’s presence in the seventh house could also leave the United Kingdom wide open to deceit in regard to diplomatic issues over the next month.

Most intriguingly too, the fixed star Aldebaran is exactly conjunct the midheaven on this chart, emphasising possible success in trade and/or military affairs over the next few weeks.

It is also worth bearing in mind that soon Pluto will reach the exact same degree it was in the USA Declaration of Independence chart, July 4 1776. Pluto warns us of surreptitious behaviour on a grand scale, although one can’t help but wonder what this might mean for the constitution — we shall see over the next year or so.

There’s Hope — But Don’t Expect Too Much

I believe the February 11 New Moon represents another step along the way of some form of transformation, which may only reach top gear by around 2025 when Pluto itself enters Aquarius. By then I truly hope that we will be on the way towards creating a peaceful federation of locally based communities within our countries, which can stretch the hand of friendship and cooperation worldwide — now these are true Aquarian values.

This New Moon could be quite interesting and enlightening, therefore, but don’t expect too much. We may have to wait until after February 20 to get some more clarity. Hang on in there.

The Upcoming Age of Air — Embrace Positive Change

On December 17 2020 Saturn leaves one sign of his rulership and enters the other — Aquarius.

On December 19 Jupiter also enters the Waterbearer, where the two conjoin exactly in 0 degrees Aquarius on December 21, the day of the winter solstice. The two are already effectively within orbs of a conjunction in the latter degrees of Capricorn.

The symbolism could not be more emphatic, in my opinion. This is the true date of the Great Migration, where the Grand Conjunction, which occurs every 19.6 years, moves into another element, on this occasion from earth into air.

Threshold of the Age of Air

This, I contend, is the threshold of the Age of Air, where gross materialism will finally be let go. For two hundred years humanity has been led blindly from one disaster to another, in an almost endless sequence of war and revolution. Whilst there has seemingly been an improvement in certain material conditions and a great growth in our population, we have never been more misled, or confused.

Aquarius and air signs in general (Libra, Gemini), represent thought, the mind, communication, relationships and equity. There will develop a lightening of our civilisation, away from materialism and more towards the merging of science and spirituality, which were always effectively the same discipline.

The Great Migration

The last time this Great Migration occurred in the early 13th century, that is moving from the earth element into air, we had developments like the Magna Carta (1215) and the birth of great men and philosophers, such as Thomas Aquinas and Roger Bacon. According to the extant records, the 13th and 14th centuries represent the gestation of what we now call the Renaissance.

Whilst there were naturally many negative aspects, it was generally a time of cultural flowering, more openness, experimentation; yet it was also a highly spiritual age. Life was far from perfect, of course, yet our understanding of the past is not always accurate. We are victims of thinking that everything in the past has to be less advanced than our own times. This is not true.

One Step Back — Two Forward

So the way I see it, the first twenty years of this new Age of Air, influenced by the fixed air sign of Aquarius, will be a time of making new foundations in philosophy, science and spirituality. There will be new modes of governing ourselves; in fact, the concept of government is about to change fundamentally.

Whilst we will begin to slowly free ourselves from the previous grossly materialistic culture, we will also start to harken back to previous ages and realise that much wisdom has been foolishly and forcibly removed from our civilisation. We must go one step back to go two forward, so to speak.

The Birth and Death of Kings

This change, I believe, is inevitable. Traditionally, the Great Conjunction every twenty years represents the ‘birth and death of kings’. The migration into another element strongly indicates deeper, more fundamental change, spiritually and structurally.

It will not be easy, of course, but it is absolutely necessary for our long term well-being, culturally and spiritually. We shall be able to look forward towards freedom, whilst working within certain eternal, fundamental spiritual realities which cannot be ignored.

Let us embrace this change — it is, after all, ‘written in the stars’ of our Creator.
