If Your Birthday is Jan. 27
(The Day of Precocity) | Aquarius Birthday Reading | All Other Signs
This is an unusually fertile moment for you — although it may require you to gather together some formerly cut-off facets of yourself. You likely won’t have to look far or work too hard at it, because you contain all of what you thought was missing, as well as the ability to put it back together. First, look inward and notice how you feel. Then, look around you, and stay conscious of who in your community can lend support to the process.
Written in the Planets
The Aquarius New Moon tonight into tomorrow morning happens to take place exactly conjunct the asteroids Osiris and Isis. If you recognize those names, you know they’re the primeval king and queen of mythological Egypt. In their myth, Isis puts the body of Osiris back together after his brother murders him; Isis gets help from the god Thoth to replace his missing phallus with one made of gold. The royal couple is then able to conceive the divine Horus. Does this New Moon therefore indicate a reunion between your inner Divine Feminine and Divine Masculine, in a way that you’re aware of both intuitively and consciously? Perhaps. At the very least, its placement in the sign Aquarius underscores both your freedom and your responsibility in this ‘seed moment’, and its connection to your role in a larger group.
