What do you want to know? What gets your curiosity going? These are questions you may wish to consider now, because soon you’ll have an opportunity to explore specific topics in depth for their own sake, in a way you previously might not have been able to. Your mental focus is about to become a force to be envied.
It is not possible to cover every eventuality with strict rules or with statistics. There will always be exceptions, hence the facility for laws to be altered and to allow for individual freedoms. It could be argued that the various permutations of the Golden Rule at times transcend everything else.
This year’s New Moon in your sign takes place at the very center of Aquarius, a special point in the zodiac known as a cross-quarter, which marks exactly halfway through the season and is thus of universal significance. You can therefore consider this event as a reminder of one important truth: you matter.
This week could be a big one for you in terms of focusing your self-knowledge and coming home to who you really are. At least some of that may be related to acknowledging parts of your identity without shame and without unnecessary concealment. Guilt is insidious, and you have no reason to experience any simply for being your natural, honest self, regardless of the way others might treat you.
Developing a just self-image can be tricky, because our opinions of ourselves are always subjective. The same is generally true of any outside perspective we might seek. This is why it’s so helpful to cultivate self-acceptance. In addition, if you worry that you’re not the person you think you ought to be, first notice that word “ought” and consider that you’re likely judging yourself unnecessarily — and, secondly, at least you care about what you manifest in the world.
We’re in a time when our individual differences are being emphasized, often at the expense of understanding what we all have in common. Love and respect that apply universally are decidedly not in fashion. Yet, while it’s true that we each have a responsibility for how we live, there is surely also a place for compassion that regards only the fact that we exist, we’re alive and we’re human.
Though your ruler Saturn has now been in your sign for about a year, you might be quite a way off as yet from any sense of feeling at home. Part of this may be due to certain memories or deep impressions surfacing and demanding your attention. This could actually represent a significant step toward a new phase of embracing who you are unapologetically.
