The Women in the New-Moon Mirror

Today’s New Moon is in coolly compassionate Aquarius, and is defined by a square between Venus in Pisces (love, love and more love) and tough-lesson Saturn in break-the-mold Sagittarius. In English (not asstro-speak), this new moon is all about impersonally dealing with your personal blocks, especially in terms of how they hold you back from embracing humanity-at-large. Astrological shifts tend to occur just when we need them most, and it’s time for us to check our privilege, our personal biases, and our laziness so we can more fully resist this anti-humanitarian (read: anti-Aquarian) regime. In other words, this will be a powerful lunar cycle if we use it to march into a bigger picture. Goddess knows I’m looking at the woman in the mirror and lacing up my combat boots.
