The dark New Moon nights are the best in the month for sky gazing — enjoy!
Aquarius is a sky oriented sign. In Egyptian mythology, the sky was a woman, Nut. Her body was imaged as the starry firmament bent lovingly and protectively over earth. Nut was called The Great Deep, The Starry One, The Mother of the Sun, and Mystery of the Heavens.
If you have been in a winter cave of deep introspection as we approach this New Moon, the night of the eclipse may be the perfect time to bundle up, go outside and lift your face to the sky to receive your Nut-given inspiration. Like an open vessel, allow the light from the heavens to pour down upon your receptive spirit like a rain of stars.
Feel illuminated, awakened, and enlivened within and without. You may even feel the neurons that light up your autonomous nervous system shimmering with electricity, transforming your physical body into a luminous starry cosmos. This is the meaning of mystical transfiguration—the body transmuted into light.
Aquarius is a future-thinking star-gazing sign—which is another good reason to let this New Moon draw your attention to the sky. Renew your relationship with the extraterrestrial firmament. Nurture you imagination with thoughts of the planets, stars, the distant suns and galaxies. Open your soul to visions of the future. Nut may or may not send you celestial instructions. That’s between you and her.
