A state of human life vaguely defined by the term “Universal Peace,” while a result of cumulative effort through centuries past, might come into existence quickly, not unlike a crystal suddenly forms in a solution which has been slowly prepared. –Nikola Tesla
There is an opportunity to breathe some rather rarified air during this New Moon in Aquarius. And while we are in it, we might glimpse what apparently lies beyond our mundane grasp—the true nature of Self. With 8 planets occupying the last 3 signs—Pluto in Capricorn, Venus, Moon/Sun in Aquarius and Neptune, Mars, Mercury and Chiron in Pisces our perspective will be of the big picture, community and a deep sense of well being we all, as one, may feel/experience.
Though free to think and act, we are held together, like the stars in the firmament, with ties inseparable. These ties cannot be seen, but we can feel them. I cut myself in the finger, and it pains me: this finger is a part of me. I see a friend hurt, and it hurts me, too: my friend and I are one. And now I see stricken down an enemy, a lump of matter which, of all the lumps of matter in the universe, I care least for, and it still grieves me. Does this not prove that each of us is only part of a whole?—Nikola Tesla
Nikola Tesla (July 10, 1856 Smiljan, Croatia–inventor, electrical engineer, mechanical engineer, physicist, and futurist best known for his contributions to the design of the modern alternating current (AC) electrical supply system.) has Chiron in Aquarius aspecting Jupiter, ascendant, Pluto, Saturn and the Black Moon Lilith. His list of accomplishments and eccentricities exemplify a Uranian type—unique independent and absorbed in his research but also highly aware of the intrinsic nature of all things.
What we may experience in these few days before, during and after this New Moon is a deeply evolving sense of collective unity. Meaning of course that we all share in what happens here in every moment whether we are consciously aware of this or not. Everything exists within “that” which I am. Sun/Moon in Aquarius, last decadent, (ruled by Venus) allows us to experience the aspect of attraction through a detached lens, the unequivocal evolutionary and electric energy of Uranus. It happens that Venus in this chart is at 10 degrees Aquarius. Emotionally we are in for a freeze or the ability to remain logical rather than emotional, a valuable gift in the ‘pursuit’ of freedom from the relative and repetitive nature of our existence here.
Nikolai Tesla, a Cancer, never married and was not known to have been in relationship. He worked excessively long hours and reportedly slept only 2 hours a day/night. Tesla, with Chiron in Aquarius square to Pluto in Taurus conjunct the ascendant would have experienced ample energy to disrupt normal functioning.
The closest aspect to this New Moon is the square made to the north and south nodes in Scorpio/Taurus. It is exact within 9 minutes and would suggest a union of consciousness/innate consciousness being the vehicle through which we attain a deeper understanding of physical existence and the energies that define the human being. As we approach this understanding our view of physical reality turns inward to a discernible infinite landscape spreading in all directions and enveloping all of physical reality. There is awareness of the blinking eye but no sense of to whom the eye belongs.
Our sense of self worth and value and our notion of relationship to what exists external to the self is being radically altered now so that a sense of being struck by lightning may ensue; blinded to illusion. Tesla ‘suffered’ from intermittent brilliant flashes of light that were followed by a vision relating to a pertinent project. People thought he was insane. These same people did not have the advantage of examining the powerful influence of the outer planets in his chart. Given such an opportunity would have resisted peeking into the frightening depths that might lead one to madness themselves.
To further describe the influence of this New Moon it is helpful to observe the semi-sextile of Pluto to Venus. The intractable presense of the ‘redeemer’ signifies an inevitable dumping of unnecessary waste material as regards our relationship issues. Is it a good thing? You betcha’! Relationship issues have driven human beings to significant distraction and generated an abundance of less than positive emotions for centuries. Time to clear the collective grid and whisk our selves into a place of greater harmony. Resistance is futile! Thank goodness. Have I said that before? Probably.
No wiggle room. Saturn square Venus is sure to grind out those inefficient patterns of co-dependency or work them into submission. How can one fly when there is a need to be attached to someone/thing else? Not possible logistically. Aquarius=logic.
Aquarius is an interactive hierarchical logic simulator designed to run in a multiple window (concurrent processing) environment on an Engineering Workstation. This approach lets an engineer iterate conveniently between simulation and modification of the logic model or input patterns. Because Aquarius is hierarchical, any subtree of the model…(website: IEEEXplore)
This is what came up when I looked up the preceding equation. It seemed appropriate to the point. Cold hard facts and just words that we have created to describe what we think we are experiencing which typically happens through a rainbow of filters.
Four planets in Pisces square Jupiter in Gemini. Wisdom and the big picture is the message and wins out over the ego that thinks it knows everything and spreads superficiality from coast to coast. The messenger rides the alternate current of telepathy and empathy in service to the highest good. Mars= 6 deg. Pisces Uranus= 6 deg. Aries and Jupiter= 6 deg. Gemini. Will you believe what you ‘see’? There is a high probability that you will blink rapidly in confusion before slowly letting go of preconceived ideas that only limit you to a limited and tiresome perception of what is going on here. Mercury in Pisces assists in elevating the intellect to—an indefinable source of knowing that ultimately pre-empts the need for knowing any thing. And you thought it was complex. On the contrary, it is so simple that in fact we need do nothing here except surrender to whatever one feels needs surrender to. Then again that would be nothing. Now you have a ticket to be free in this lifetime!
This New Moon=freedom from concepts that define or limit
.brilliant insight into the nature of Self
.no need for substantiality
.no desire for individual identification
.the overwhelming sense that all exists in perfection so must I be “that”
It is a glorious breath that slips silently from one exhale to the universal inhale. One that has carried us beyond all possible vagrancies into the terrifying abyss of annihilation and out into the realization of Self as the eternal and infinite awareness that is, just is. I embrace you. You embrace I and everything collapses into nothing.
NB: outlook for Valentine’s Day? The goddess of love remains in Aquarius until 02.25 this year that doesn’t promise sweet nothings being whispered or sentimental embraces. And with Moon in Aries there could be a definite attitude of me first and instant gratification. If romance and commitment are your heart’s desires don’t dispose of them just relax on the expectations that go along with them.
