There are three Mercury retrogrades in 2015, all in air signs, and I've created a special handout, offered first to you, my valued newsletter subscriber. Look for the link to my 2015 Mercury Retrograde Tune*Up below.
Opening the Door to the Age of Aquarius
The New Moon of January 20th occurs in the very beginning of the sign Aquarius. I think most will agree that collectively we have entered the Age of Aquarius. I found it quite interesting to read the results when I googled 'when does the Age of Aquarius begin.'
'The Age of Aquarius begins when vernal equinox point moves out of constellation Pisces
and into Aquarius. There's no definitive answer as to when that will be.' EarthSky.org
The only agreement is that nobody knows the exact date, but I think we're well into it. One of the best confirmations that we have entered the Age of Aquarius is evidenced by our obsession with the qualities of Leo, the sign opposite Aquarius. Through YouTube and selfies - everybody gets to be a star of their own show.
None of this is a one day, or one year process. and Mercury is helping the process; this time Mercury retrogrades back to the first degree of Aquarius, stations direct on February 11th, and next ushers us into the final Uranus/Pluto square on March 16th.
Kabbalah teaches the Age of Aquarius began as much as 400 years ago! Rudolph Steiner said it would begin in the year 3574. I think we're there now. Regardless of the exact date, this New Moon at 0 degrees, the very beginning of Aquarius, is symbolically opening a door. I envision it as a big, creaky door being finally and fully opened. We are invited to leave the darkness of the Age of Pisces and to enter a world of possibility, but also responsibility, within the new Age.
Maybe Mars conjunct Neptune in Pisces on January 19th closed out the old Age of Pisces - sending it off in a display of underwater fireworks. When Mars and Neptune join forces, it's time to and fix what is broken and clean up your act. Positively, these two also offer healing through art, dance, and music.
Attitude of Gratitude
In this world of yin and yang, day and night, sometimes it's hard to leave the darkness of world events behind. However; you can choose the room in which you live. Why spend your days in the dungeon of an old age?
Compassion for self and others is one of the gifts of Pisces. You have the tools for self-healing, and the feeling of gratitude is one of your greatest empowerments. Gratitude costs nothing, yet it gives everything. And, it opens the door to Light, your entry into the Age of Aquarius.
The Sun, Moon, Venus, and Mercury are all in Aquarius for this New Moon. In addition to compassion for humanity, another special quality of Aquarius is the ability to transcend time and even space.
Mercury in Aquarius helps you hold steadfast in your convictions. You can move beyond the duality of this world, of night and day, black and white, and maintain focus and purpose.
This is the gift - find it, hold it, and don't let go. You will experience miracles; you can create peace - in your mind - every day.
Happy New Moon - this one's a special gift - for YOU.
