The Mood of Aquarius

Friend to All

When the Moon is in Aquarius, we don't want to be bound to routines. There's an impulse to break out of claustrophobic situations and relationships. We are friendly, but in a more detached way.

Aquarius is the sign of the visionary.  So when the instinctual Moon is here, there can be emotional outbursts to go along with the inspiration.  Thoughts about humanity as a whole, and ways to be a contributor to its evolution are on our minds. We want to connect with everybody, and are more open to those from very different walks of life.

We crave cutting edge ideas, and may go seeking it in people and our own investigations.  It's a time of going beyond the usual perceptive filters.  Winding down under this Moon means reading or following a thread of fascination.

Aquarius relates to currents of the body, as well as the mind and spirit.  This is a good time to schedule energy healing or acupuncture. 

Social Scene

The Moon in Aquarius can bring blessed relief from too much emoting. It allows us the distance to see the big picture. The mood takes us down tangents of thought, or brings exciting flash ideas. It's a great time for tuning into the popular memes out there. 

It favors social networking via the net, or experimenting with other technologies that keep you connected. It's time for embracing the new, the futuristic and innovative.

It is the right mood for turning into group energy. It encourages a respect for each person, along with a cohesive awareness of the group as a whole.

You can see your place in the bigger scheme of things, when the Moon is in this air sign. You can get an abstract take on how the different strands fit together. The Moon in Aquarius tunes us into the group psyche and soul.

Beat of Own Drummer

And yet, Aquarius is unpredictable and the Moon is too.  I know many with Aquarius Moon in their natal chart who retreat into books and solitude.  One striking thing I've noticed is they make no excuses -- they simply go their own way.  This is a strength of the fixed sign Aquarius -- a sign that settles into its own atmospheres, often very deeply.  It's why it's known for being in its own world.

With Moon in Aquarius, it's time to be in your own world.  There's a sense of freedom that comes from stabilizing yourself in your own thoughts, no matter where they lead.  That makes it a stellar time to honor your need to get lost in your own world of the mind.  And in that atmosphere, there are often glimpses of something new at the edges, as Aquarius is a sign of the future.

Some power activities now: getting energy work, like acupuncture or reflexology; attend a community-building event; conceptualize a plan; brainstorm at work; send a mass email to friends and family; update your social networking profile; break free of a social convention; mix with those outside your usual circle; conspire to rebel or reform; break out of the matrix!

Follow the Moon!

The Moon sets the emotional tone as it transits through the Zodiac signs. It changes signs every 2 1/2 days. You can work with this rhythm to "go with the flow" of the Moon. You can use it to know the general feeling tone to expect.
