I am so excited once again to provide you all with the low down on this months Aquarius new moon! Now there is a lot going on here, many themes, and many downloads influencing our behaviours, our thoughts, and our feelings.
Those of you who are familiar with my work, know that I like to work out the significance of the date, and the number, that these Luna cycles fall on, because I am just that much obsessed with numerology!
I’d also like to note that the theme of Valentine’s Day, and lovers is present, as we are in a (2) month, the 14th, also signifies a period of change 1+4= 5.
So, let us take a look at what the number 8 actually presents, and how this fits in with what we have been experiencing, and what we are working toward. After this, i will move on to how the energy of Aquarius is influencing us at this time. There will also be a tarot reading available at the bottom, to further offer us some clarity, and affirmation about our feelings, and emotions.
Okay, so, looking at the number 8..
In numerology, possibly the most popular explanation of the number 8, is associated with business strategy, and success. This is often viewed as the number most likely to become successful, through business enterprise, entrepreneurship, or some type of management role, the reason being, is the number 8 does not really like to be told what to do, or bossed around, they tend to come from a past/background of being repressed, or suppressed, usually in regards to finance, or social/cultural conditioning, and toward the prime years of their life set out toward sustaining autonomy, independence, and enough financial security to not fall back into deprived ways.
I find this particularly interesting, as Aquarius is also associated with individuality, and creative spontaneity. Let us consider the term, ‘age of Aquarius’ which refers to a time on our planet where numerous activated soul groups, (like myself), will reveal themselves, and do their best to shake things up! This is the very nature of Aquarian energy, and also the energy of the number 8, the mind of individuality that breaks the rules, just by being themselves.
This energy inspires us once again, to tap into our own inner knowing, the responsibility that we hold toward ourselves to be authentic, and this leads us into the theme on detachment.
In order to be fully authentic, and present the side of ourselves unlimited by society, or restriction, we must detach from all of the persons, activities, circumstances, situations, and belief systems that keep us tied in, that keep us limited.
Because of this, you may find that lately you are struggling against persons who are so obviously stuck in 3D consciousness, and limited to the propagated images and entrapment that ego consciousness have to offer. The things, and the people that you could endure before, seem ridiculous to you now! You begin to wonder how you ever put up with this stuff, and you look back at the past you, all in horror, confusion, misunderstanding, and slight admiration.
Wow, what a strong person you were to endure all of that, you may think. The superficial, fictitious relationships, the karmic attachments that bled you dry of hope and sanity, and the nay Sayers, who kept you both in fear, and stagnation, with all of their rules, control tactics and intimidation theories.
Which brings me back on to another prominent theme for the number 8.. Karma.
I once said that wherever the number 8 is present, a spiritual/karmic lesson is sure to follow.
During a period of separation from my twin, I was so distraught that my heart began screaming out, crying out for somebody to love, and somebody to prove to me that I was worthy of such love. Twin flame love. Well, I soon came across a man. He seemed perfect on paper to me. I even began to wonder if he was my twin flame, secretly I wished that he would be, so that I could release all of the pain, the hurt, and the confusion associated with my actual twin, who I was no longer in regular contact with.
This guy was interested in spirituality, psychology, and he was a life path 8. Jackpot I thought! Or not..
On our first initial date, he had articulated to me that he had broken up with his last girlfriend because she was far too sensitive, too easily hurt he said, and he felt like he could not be himself, and that he had to limit himself. A nightmare, as he described it.
I was shocked. Dumb founded. Left with the wind knocked out of me. Here I was. Sat opposite him, listening to the disdain roll of his tongue as he described a lady who sounded almost exactly like me, a description that sounded almost exactly like the situation that had unfolded between me and my twin.
Needless to say, I went home later that night absolutely devastated. Somehow, I knew that it was my twin sat before me, articulating his feelings, even though it was not him in the flesh. This is not uncommon for twin flames during separation stage. In the name of karma, other souls will come along who drop you gems, information about what your twin feels, is experiencing in regards to your union. The things that they cannot verbally tell you, will find a way to reach you.
The number 8.. Karmic returns.
This is the number that will show you first hand, the active role that you play in your karma, and your karmic transactions. How your thoughts, feelings, thought patterns, and actions create your life situations, and experiences. At that time, I realised how my over-bearing nature was really pushing my twin away, and how my unresolved wounds had caused him to feel restricted, like he couldn’t be himself. This was because of my own karma – my belief system that I was not enough.
You may have found yourself in situations lately that cause you to question your nature. If you have been perpetually playing the role of the victim, or the martyr, then you are asked to witness how you aid in these circumstances. If all of your karmic attachments have mirrored one sided relationships, involving you and a narcissist, then you must asses the ways in which your own brokeness, and thoughts about yourself attracted these individuals.
In what ways have you been aiding, and allowing these karmic transactions? These individuals who do not acknowledge you in the ways that you should be acknowledged, could this be because you are failing to acknowledge yourself?
Here once again, is where detachment comes in. In order to self heal, and actualise, we must detach from the set of feelings, thoughts, and limiting beliefs that cause our dense, and heavy karma to continuously exist within us, and manifest outside of us, attracting these painful relationships.
Because of the influence of this number, (8), we are also very likely to be experiencing twin flame themes, and motivations. The number 8 is a twin number because it represents infinity, and as depicted by its shape, two wholes coming together to form one whole. It is more prevalent than ever to both twins that they hold a mission, and a path before them is calling them, to reveal it, to reveal themselves.
They may be currently working toward business goals, and financial planning that will provide longevity, stable income, and that potentially leaves a legacy.
They are aware of the existence of something within them that continuously fuels their drive, and this goal visualisation very much helps the feminine, (stayer twin), to take her focus away from the pain of the Union, and transmute it into creative energy.
This is the kind of detachment that this energy calls for. Not the bitter kind that says, ‘he/she broke my heart, and now I want nothing to do with them’, but the type that says, ‘I will focus on what I can control. I will use this passion inside of me to prove to myself what I have always known deep down, that I am worthy’.
Aquarius is typically depicted as pouring jugs of water. Water is representative of renewal, cleansing, growth, emotions, and intuition.
Likely, our efforts toward detachment will bring us a sense of renewal, and cleansing. When we can let go of the past, we realise how the events in our past, no longer need to influence us, and how all of our painful experiences, are only concrete if we carry them along on with us. We can no longer go back to being who we were, or doing what we used to do, not knowing what we now know. We must trust in our intuition to provide us with the knowledge of where to go, and how to create a newer version of ourselves. A version more active, and determined.
Because Aquarians are so intellectual, and tend to rationalise things, they are known for their emotional detaxhment. However, Aquarians are not cold hearted, or uncaring, they are just willing to detach from their emotions, and think from an intellectual/logical standpoint if necessary – masculine energy.
This is most important for our feminine twins to incorporate. You can no longer allow emotional intensity to deter you from moving toward who you are, and achieving all that is destined to you, unlimited abundance.
It is your thoughts about being unworthy, and unlovable that have caused you emotional turmoil within this situation. Detachment from your former thought train will show you, that you are worthy and powerful, and no life circumstance can determine the measure of your worth. That is the type of old paradigm thinking that kept you in martyr complex.
You must divorce your old self, and deter your old ways. For they no longer serve you.
Detachment from concepts/labels.
One of the biggest detachments that I see occuring within this time, is the detachment from the label twin flame, and the stages, and promises that it represents.
The race to the finale, to surrender, to re-Union, has not served any good but to place you with greater feelings of anxiety, apprehension, and frustration.
Think about it. If you weren’t aware of any of these stages, or themes, you would be far more inclined to let your love flow naturally, fluidly, like the water that the sign of Aquarius pours from the jugs.
You would not be left so hurt, confused, or imprisoned by this Union if you didn’t hold all of your twins actions up in accordance with how far or how close you are to Union, neither would you fret over the descriptions/expectations that come with the label.
This new moon you are asked to let go, of all previous baggage that has been weighing you down, all thoughts that perpetuate a feeling of hopelessness, and the idea that you yourself, are the burden.
Aquarius represents this fresh burst of creativity! They can intellectualise, and disconnect from emotional burden when they need to. It is not that they are eternally detached, or emotionally cold. Much like masculine energies, they understand when and where there is a need for emotional expression, and often redirect these emotions in order to focus on creative, and financial proaction.
There is much pressure on the men in our society to achieve financial stability, and security, and this energy encourages all, especially the feminine to adopt this same drive, and pursuit. Number 8 is all about this drive, and pursuit for success! They may come across as cocky, or overly confident, because they are aware of their potential, and their efforts, and show their deserving of acknowledgement.
You are always deserving, and you must shift your energy to manifest this. When you feel deserving of divine love, you do not focus on the shortcomings so much in your experiences, and begin to take responsibility for your karmic assistance in the matters.
Tarot reading –
(Main theme, main goal, preferred outcome, masculine, feminine).
Main theme –
This card, is petty much self explanatory. The theme of this new moon is strength, mental, emotional, and spiritual. I feel it is significant that a woman is depicted on this card, as this is a strengthening of feminine energy, on both sides. The feminine embodiment must gain strength in her emotions, whilst the masculine must gain strength in his intuition, balance,and spirituality.
The feminine may recently have been dealing with themes of safety. In this society we are taught that it is a man who gives us validation, and protection from potential threats. This creates a really dependent nature on the feminine toward her father, and partners, and this will often cause her to feel disappointed, or neglected. She is being asked now, to accept that she is her own strength, and her strength is in her emotions.
Main goal –
Six of pentacles.
This card represents financial security, and the kind of stability that allows us to be generous, and openly giving. When we have enough, and we are full, we can offer more freely to others, without feeling tied down, or too restrained. Emotional freedom springs to mind. Many of our troubles are magnified by the feeling of being insecure, and unstable. When we can feel comfortable in our being, and rich, emotionally, spiritually, financially, and mentally, we express a deeper sense of gratitude and well being. Balance, and justice are also represented.
A time for rest where we can be granted the wisdom and answers that we seek. Much has been occuring within, and many changes have taken place. Now, we seek solitude, and the time alone to go fourth on our spiritual journey. The hermit can represent winter, and essentially a dark night of the soul. This represents wisdom gained through intense introspection, and investigation.
Masculine (main theme).
King of pentacles.
Just like I mentioned – finance. The King of pentacles is at the top of his game! Successful, graceful, and accomplished, he is able to express a sense of charity, counsel to others, and care giving. Because he has achieved his goals, and he feels in control of his life, he can focus on other areas, and eventually become balanced on a larger scale. Remember that the theme of this reading was strength, so this is the area in which he is gaining strength. This could also relate to how others see him, and his status within society.
Feminine (main theme).
Knight of cups.
Emotional confirmation/validation. The knight of cups often represents somebody who is highly sensitive, ideallistic, and easily led by emotional dramas, and the fluctuation of moods.
On the plus side, this individual is very much in touch with their emotions, and the beauty of life. Because of a magical perception, and intuitive imagination, this feminine vibration can create new worlds, and paint vivid manifestations. On the down side, if they become too absorbed in their idealisms of love, they may grow depressed, upon looking to others for salvation, and failing to receive it.
It is time for her to show the world what she has got, and not what she perceives that she is lacking. Remember that the main theme of this reading was strength, and it is strength that she is finding through these intense emotions.
I am creatively manifesting my visions.
I am in touch with my intuition, and thus my higher calling.
I am love, I am safe, and I release all resistances to this.
