New Moon 8 Aquarius beween Venus and Saturn by expressingyourtruth  


New Moon Aquarius

New Moon in Aquarius ~ brainstorming new ideas with love and grace

On January 27th, the Moon is New for the first time in 2017.  The Sun and Moon are conjunct at 8 degrees Aquarius, which is represented by Pink Diamonds (keyword Impact).  The Sabian Symbol for that degree is "Beautifully Gowned Waxed Figures."  A new moon in the earth sign of Aquarius suggests setting intentions, unusual, radical new activities, brainstorming new ideas.

"I am in contact with my source and am creating my life as I desire it to be."

The Sun and Moon are conjunct at 8 Aquarius.  Venus at 24 Pisces is squared by Saturn at 24 Sagittarius.  Venus is also part of a Pisces stellium that continues, with Neptune at 10, Chiron at 22 and Mars at 29 Pisces.  The North Node is at 3 Virgo.  Jupiter at 23 Libra is still opposing Uranus at 20 Aries. Mercury at 15 Capricorn is conjunct Pluto at 17 Capricorn.
Beautifully Gowned Waxed Figures


When the Moon is in Aquarius Moon 
Aquarius Attraction to all that is new and unusual, and an instinctive need for improvement, characterize the Moon in Aquarius. Reactions are more intellectual than emotional, and interactions are more impersonal than personal, under this influence. This is a time that promotes social gatherings, dealing with group ideals and goals for the future, brainstorming, new ideas, and progressive changes. We are open to new methods of doing things and we have our eye on the future. It can be hard to stick to schedules now, as personal freedom is most important to us. The Moon in Aquarius generally favors the following activities: Unusual or radical undertakings, social pursuits, group projects, trying something new, joining a group.

Venus square Saturn

The New Moon is between Venus in Pisces squaring Saturn in Sagittarius.  She wants to be forgiving but he can be critical.

"Venus square Saturn is the strongest influence in the New Moon January 2017 astrology chart shown below. This most challenging of planetary aspects connects to the New Moon via two semisquare aspects (45°). These minor aspects indicate irritation that generates action. The semisquare may be a minor aspect but two of them together is very significant. This is because the New Moon sits at the midpoint of Venus square Saturn. Venus square Saturn can add stress to intimate relationships because of negative feelings, distance or other relationships problems. Most of these hindrances will stem from your own fears or criticisms, but you may face the same from others. It is common under this influence to feel lonely and depressed. Money may be tight so avoid a tendency toward wasting money and other resources. Although motivation may be lacking and you would prefer to be lazy, hard work is needed maintain your present relationship, career or other valued part of life. This is no time to be ignoring your responsibilities, especially for loved ones. Although you will be feeling low and in need of love, someone close to you may lean on your for support and would be greatly disappointed if you let them down." http://astrologyking.com/new-moon-january-2017/

Venus in Pisces: "Pisces never sees the world in black-and-white terms. Rather, Pisces sees all the colors of the rainbow. With the goddess of love in Pisces, our love is all-embracing, we are able to forgive and understand, we are seducible and seductive, and we show compassion to our partners. Venus in Pisces is tender and affectionate, although hard to reach nevertheless, as there is a longing for something that is hard to define and hard to satisfy. Borders and boundaries blur under Venus in Pisces. The shadow side of this position is allowing ourselves to be victimized or deluded, as well as evasiveness."


Saturn in Sagittarius (2014-2017): "Saturn demands simplicity, definition, realism, and truth wherever it touches our charts. Saturn in Jupiter’s sign, Sagittarius, is contraction versus expansion in motion. Finding a satisfying balance, lying somewhere between being too lax and too controlled, can consume a lot of our time and energy. We seek out growth, but Saturn sees to it that we do so in a disciplined manner. Saturn in Sagittarius asks us to take on the responsibility of living according to our personal truths and principles, and to be loyal to these. This is a time for turning a critical eye to those beliefs and principles that don’t accurately reflect our authentic selves."

The Sun and Moon are conjunct at 8 Aquarius.  Venus at 24 Pisces is squared by Saturn at 14 Sagittarius.  Venus is also part of a Pisces stellium that continues, with Neptune at 10, Chiron at 22 and Mars at 29 Pisces.  The North Node is at 3 Virgo.  Jupiter at 23 Libra is still opposing Uranus at 20 Aries. Mercury at 15 Capricorn is conjunct Pluto at 17 Capricorn.


You can always look at "This Week in Astrology" at Cafe Astrology to see if there is a significant lunation in the week.

What is happening at the lunations?

Every new moon (and full moon) is different because it falls in a different sign.  When the moon is new it is in the same sign as the Sun because, by definition, they are conjunct and the moon is between the earth and the sun.  When the moon is full it is in the opposite sign from the Sun because, by definition, they are the farthest from each other, with the earth between them.

"This is the best time of the month to observe faint objects such as galaxies and star clusters because there is no moonlight to interfere."



New Moon in Natal Houses

What house is this moon occuring in for your natal chart?

So an important thing to consider is the house in your natal chart where the lunation is falling, as well as any planets that might be nearby.

So you will need to look at your chart.  I recommend pulling it up at http://astro.com (use the free extended charts, natal and transits option).

Here is my chart showing the Moon (conjunct the Sun) in my 1st house:

my chart


Not sure what all those glyphs (symbols) mean?

So for me, the moon falls in my 2nd house.  You can look up the meaning here, among other places: New Moon in the Houses

Example  
New Moon in the Second House 
"Heightened sensitivity to the world of the five senses, to your physical environment, and to the security you gain from the solid ground you have built for yourself is in order for this period of time. Attunement to, and appreciation of, the physical world of the senses is the focus, and this is a time to start fresh in terms of how you arrange your life in order to feel a sense of value and worthiness. Financial issues come into focus. Setting realistic financial goals, as well as formulating such things as budgets and other sensible financial planning projects, will be favored during this time. Discovering ways to increase your income is featured. It is also a wonderful time for taking moments to pleasure yourself through earthy, tactile, and comforting endeavors."

Second House: not only are our values, sense of self-worth and financial resources (and how we use them) effected, but also our use of spiritual resources or prana, and resulting freedom and abundance.

Saturn Square Venus in my chart

Saturn in 1st house:

"Saturn transiting the first house begins with a Saturn conjunction to the Ascendant, a transit of personal significance. The first house is a fire house, a house that rules our personal identity. We concern ourselves with how we come across to others on a personal level with Saturn here. Our physical body becomes a focus as well. Depending on the age of the native, it may be a time when we feel our age, or it is a time when we see our bodies quite clearly. This is an excellent time for beginning health regimens, diets, and the like, simply because it is a time when we look in the mirror and see ourselves clearly—not what we want to see. Our outlook on life changes to a more serious, responsible tone. In the beginning stages of the transit, you may feel frustrated with yourself, let down, and lacking in self-confidence. You might reach out to others in an attempt to validate yourself, looking for ways to boost your confidence. When these attempts fail, you may feel temporarily let down and discouraged. Rest assured that Saturn will re-work these feelings, with your help of course, until you reach a point (as Saturn moves through the house) where you have a stronger sense of self. This transit acts to transform your self-confidence in such a way that you question the source of your confidence to date, and discover a more solid base for pulling up inner strength. Saturn here acts to rip away the superficial. Illusions about the self, the body, and personal abilities will no longer be tolerated. The end result is a newfound identity and a realistic understanding of the self. In terms of career and projects, outward signs of progress may not be as forthcoming, yet the work that you do during this transit will lay a foundation for future success and progress! For example, some years ago, a client began a hobby/project during a Saturn transit to her first house, something that took up a lot of her time and energy and that yielded nothing in terms of immediate financial gain—until later! In fact, this “hobby” turned into her career in the years to follow."
https://cafeastrology.com/saturntransitinghouses.html

Venus in 3rd house:

"You are mostly cheerful in your approach to others, and perhaps somewhat intellectual, during this transit. Essentially, you are quite companionable now. You enjoy talking about what interests you, and you find great value in the exchange of ideas. Sometimes this transit brings benefit through siblings, communications, or short trips. During this period, you are most attracted to wit, cheerfulness, and verbal rapport. You are especially good at mediating conflicts. Smoothing over differences using your diplomacy skills figures now. "

Pluto in Capricorn

Pluto in Capricorn


On January 27, 2008, Pluto entered into Capricorn for the start of his long stay in that sign (until January 2024). In 2017, Pluto starts out at 16 Capricorn and ends the year at 18 Capricorn.  Pluto goes retrograde on April 20th at 19 Capricorn and direct on Sept 28 at 16 Capricorn.  When Pluto makes his way into Capricorn, we will deal with aging, material resources, money, power, our desire for status and our response to security issues.

http://astrology.about.com/od/plutoincapricornto2023/qt/PlutoCap.htm


Pluto Transits

"Pluto takes approximately 248 years to come full circle. This slow-moving planet’s transits are long-lasting, and each transit takes its time to unfold. As Pluto transits a point in our chart, retrogrades back over it, and then hits it again in direct motion, it imparts its own special wisdom upon the point in question—the areas of lives and parts of our psyches ruled by that point. How Pluto affects our lives depends very much on whether we resist its influences or we try to work with the planet of rebirth and destiny. Whatever part of our lives and of our psyches that Pluto touches, especially by hard transit, is an area that Pluto compels us to explore more deeply. Superficiality is not acceptable for Pluto. Pluto transits insist that we get in touch with our core purpose and our deep sense of power. New levels of intimacy, not only with others but also with ourselves, are discovered and uncovered." source

Pluto in Capricorn

Pluto was last in Capricorn 1762-1778, which includes the time of the American Revolution.
Pluto (to transform) in Capricorn (Prudent and Reserved) (Natal Interpretation): You transform in a prudent and reserved manner in areas related to power, business and careers. This generation may be against authority and wish to become independent of some authority (powerful country, convention, etc). You delve beneath the surface in matters related power over others and in a practical, common sense way seek to remove it (earth). You may move out into the world to make changes (cardinal) and you are motivated from the outside (passive), which might be social conventions. The transformation is resisted because of a tendency to cling onto the old and a tendency to carefully and prudently make changes, which tends to make them even more powerful when they break through. (1762-1778, 2008-2024) source

Pluto Retrograde


Pluto is retrograde for 160 days and is stationary about 16 days before and 16 days after retrogradation.  During this time, you will need to rectify any issues from your past.

Pluto Retrograde

Pluto Capricorn transiting the Second House: (House of Taurus and Venus) A test of your values and how much you invest in your own natural talents, possessions and sense of place. Getting to the heart of money beliefs -- where is flow and where is the energy backed up? Events possible that intensify fears about being able to provide for yourself and others. Big transformations to do with earning power. A revamping of what 'security' means, and trust in your own resilience, self-sufficiency.

Neptune in Pisces

Neptune in Pisces


The planet Neptune will be in the sign of Pisces from February 3, 2012 to 2025. In 2017, Neptune moves between 9 and 11 Pisces. Neptune retrogrades on June 10th at 14 Pisces and goes direct Nov. 22nd at 11 Pisces.  Neptune rules Pisces, no separation or boundaries exist between who we are as separate beings and our oneness with all life.

Neptune Transits

"Neptune takes approximately 164 years to come full circle—too long to complete a cycle through our natal charts. This slow-moving planet’s transits are long-lasting, and each transit takes its time to unfold. As Neptune transits a point in our chart, retrogrades back over it, and then hits it again in direct motion, it imparts its own special wisdom upon the point in question—the areas of lives and parts of our psyches ruled by that point. 
Whichever part of our lives and of our psyches that Neptune touches, especially by hard transit, is an area where we may feel “up in the air” and confused in the initial stages of the transit. Boundaries are not as clear, commitments are elusive, and perception is confused. If the Sun is involved, we don’t know where we are heading and we have a hard time defining what we want and where we want to go. If Venus is involved, our love life is unusual or confused. As the transit progresses, and certainly by the time it is over, we should have a more refined understanding in the affected areas of lives. What begins as confusion can eventually actually augment our perception and our understanding. Sometimes people experience a burnout of sorts that eventually leads them to take a different path–often a more spiritually rewarding and fulfilling one. Neptune acts to dissolve what it touches." source

Neptune in Pisces

"During the Neptune Pisces transit, we can expect ego needs to dissipate, if not dissolve to a great extent; such that globally, locally, and personally, hubris is humbled and little, or no separation or boundaries exist between who we are as separate beings and our oneness with all life.
Of course, this is a 14-year process, so we may start with feelings of disorientation, possibly abject weakness and helplessness, self-doubt, and confusion where we once felt total confidence and security — or vice-versa. Some may, on the other hand, immediately experience creative and/or spiritual inspiration as never before. The effect depends on the House involved in one’s birth chart and the planets/luminaries it transits." source

Neptune was last in Pisces April 4 to August 4, 2011.

The entire history of Neptune in Pisces:
"In this article I am going back in time to Neptune in Pisces in 376, 702, 866, 1029, 1193, 1357, 1522, 1684 and 1848 to see what to expect this time. Neptune will leave Pisces in 2025."

Neptune Retrograde

Neptune is retrograde for 160 days and is stationary about 16 days before and 16 days after retrogradation.  "Reasoning and all logic may be tossed aside in favor of mysticism, intuition and the esoteric."

Neptune Retrograde


my chart
Look up the house where Neptune is transiting your chart:
https://cafeastrology.com/neptune_transits_houses.html


My example:

Neptune transit third house: During this cycle, you learn to rely on your intuition. You may have some problems arising from your inattention to details, practical matters, and facts and figures. Others may find you less reliable in terms of making appointments on time or remembering them at all! Some challenges putting your thoughts into words likely leads to a stronger appreciation for such things as musical lyrics, poetry, and other art forms that experiment with modes of expression. You are likely to discover more imaginative means of expressing yourself. Neptune stimulates your imagination and intuition. Your words are more poetic and perhaps even inspirational."
Look up any transits Neptune is making to your natal planets:
https://cafeastrology.com/neptunetransits.html

My example:

"Neptune Transits Conjunct Saturn +Problems could lose some of their definition and appear less difficult now. You might have a sense of living in a dream world or of being awake in your own dream. Everything seems less solid and definite. The spirit world seems real and possible. 
Neptune transits square Moon You could get the wrong idea, develop false ideals, and let your imagination carry you away to the point that those who support and care for you are neglected or hurt. Walk a careful line when it comes to dreams versus realities. The dreams can be bad. Your sensitivity and imagination increase tremendously at this time, and you are much more easily influenced by images, the psychic and emotional energy of other people, and the psychic atmosphere around you. You may find yourself wanting to retreat from the abrasiveness, ugliness, or harsher realities of life, and to seek solace and comfort in nature, spiritual company, meditation, or your own inner world. Strange moods and feelings that you may never have experienced before come and go during this time period. Part of this is that you are absorbing others’ emotions and/or subtle psychic energy. Your sensitivity, receptivity, and empathy is so great right now that you may need to avoid negative, intensely emotional people, or even films or music depicting negative and unhappy imagery. You are opening psychically at this time and it’s very important to do it in a balanced way, and in a positive, supportive, or at least non-threatening atmosphere. 
Neptune transits square Venus You are more sensitive than ever to emotional stimulus at this time, as your love and pleasure nature is heightened, open, and perhaps vulnerable to influence. You are opening up your heart, which can also mean you are more vulnerable to romantic illusions, to being swayed, and perhaps misled. You are easily charmed, and you must watch for a tendency to see what you want to see in romantic partners, rather than for who or what they are. You may gloss over important details and practical concerns in favor of idealistic visions and perceptions. Your desires are tender and compassionate. You are responsive to all things pleasurable, possibly to the point of carelessness or laziness when it comes to tending to practical affairs. Finances can suffer under this transit if you have a tendency to live on credit. Try not to borrow from your future, not just with regards to finances, but also when it comes to emotional matters. For example, you might throw yourself into a new romance that others warn you is not realistic. Force yourself to consider practical matters, even though you may resist it, while opening your heart to new possibilities. And, while opening your heart to new possibilities, be sure to use some common sense. Sometimes this transit makes us so vulnerable that we can too easily be taken advantage of or deceived, and this can happen with regards to money and in love, and sometimes both. There can be a lot of sadness as this transit can stimulate a deep yearning for something more than “just ordinary” life. We might attract challenging situations or relationships into our lives because of a deep longing for more drama or glamor in our lives, or for a soulmate connection. This transit can also do a number to your value system. The values you have cherished to date may change quite dramatically now, or you might be tempted to throw them away, or bend your morals, in pursuit of some pleasure or fantasy. As you chase something different, unusual, and otherworldly, you may lack discrimination in your choices of purchases, people, and pleasures. 
Neptune transits square Mars *Work and important projects undergo difficult changes now. You are likely to feel very frustrated and disheartened at times, but don’t completely lose faith and throw everything out the window! This is certainly a time of questioning your values, goals, and directions in life, but try to come to rational decisions rather than act simply out of frustration.

Uranus in Aries

Uranus in Aries


The shift of Uranus into Aries occurred on March 2011 and will stay until 2018.  Uranus begins 2017 at 20 Aries and will end the year at 24 Aries.  Uranus will retrograde at 28 Aries on August 2nd and go direct January 2, 2018 at 24 Aries.  Uranus in Aries brings the self forward in ways to create revolution of self and require new, innovative ways and means.

Uranus is retrograde for 150 days and is stationary about 16 days before and 16 days after retrogradation.  "Abrupt, forceful and extreme change that takes place in your mind, heart and moves your life in a new direction."

my chart
Look up the house where Uranus is transiting in your chart:

My example:

"Uranus transit Fourth House: Your home life may be in a state of flux during this cycle. It’s possible that you move house, but even if you don’t, there could be some disruptions to your domestic routine or erratic elements on the home front that you need to deal with now. Your life speeds up, and decision-making can be very hasty now. You definitely feel the need for action, but if you don’t know where you’re headed, you might take the wrong turn. Unexpected changes in plans or events can test your patience, and you could feel a bit out of control at times, particularly if Uranus is also transiting square to your Ascendant. However, events could stimulate you to try new approaches and they certainly act to cut boredom. Letting go of old family conditioning is a theme."

Saturn will get to within 1 degree of the cusp of the 2nd house in April and May 2019 and will actually enter my 2nd house on Dec 29, 2019.

Look up any transits Saturn will be making to your planets:
https://cafeastrology.com/saturntransitaspects.html

My example:

Exact Dec. 23, 2016 and within 1 degree in January and August 2017 (accounting for orb, much longer):
"When Saturn transits conjunct Venus: What has carried you to date in the world of your social and romantic relationships may no longer feel satisfying or worthwhile for you during this transit. It’s time to assess your relationship needs, attitudes, and capabilities. You may be withdrawing yourself emotionally as you become more serious, critical, and concerned about a significant relationship in your life. You may begin to see serious flaws, and any superficial interactions may begin to bother you. You might temporarily have a hard time “going through the motions”. Fears that you might get hurt could be self-fulfilling prophecies if you are not careful now. While you should definitely take some time to come to terms with what you are now seeing, you should also understand that in the initial stages of this transit your thinking is skewed towards the negative. You are losing the rose-colored glasses and eventually you will be able to see your relationships in a most realistic light–you will see them for exactly what they are. However, the first stage of this process is rather severe and unforgiving, so take your time before making any major decisions. Differences in values between you and a partner may be glaring now. How each of you approaches the relationship in terms of commitment, loyalty, and pleasure are likely to be issues on the table. As well, you are now especially concerned with how a partner makes you feel attractive and wanted. The quality of your relationships is most important to you now. Saturn has a way of identifying weak links or weak foundations and applying pressure on them. Thus, relationship tests may occur now. It’s time to work to improve and strengthen these weaknesses. Letting go of things that truly do not work for you anymore may be necessary, but there is also a strong probability that an existing partnership can be redefined and strengthened. This can also be a time when you begin to question your ability to attract others or what you want from life. Questions of beauty, attractiveness, social charm and grace, and financial power can be themes now. You may no longer be comfortable with the ways you have employed charm or attractiveness in the past. You may become very self-critical in these areas. You no longer see yourself for what you want to see. This can all take place in your inner world, but for many, there is an external trigger in the form of an event or circumstance that changes your perception of things. Eventually, you will come to a point where you are more confident of how you go about attracting love, money, favors, and pleasure into your life, and this comes from arriving at truths and realities. It’s a strong period for reassessing your spending habits. Financial stresses may be part of the picture now, leading to a more conservative, mature, and realistic approach to handling your finances."

Testimonial: 
"Thanks Jane for the really quick result!  A lot of very helpful information here, which will take me some time to digest.  I like the way that both Taurus and Scorpio seem a little in sync — Scorpio's classic vintage (which I love) and Taurus's classic luxury would both seem to work for a modified type 4 — a yin type 4 if you will.  I must say again that I appreciate all you do.  You are such a resource for those of us who like the idea of a type but can't completely fit into one system."
