The new moon in Aquarius brings us a healthy dose of transformational visionary expansion. While any one of those three words could be considered potent, taken together transformational visionary expansion gives us the sense of how powerful the month of February and the year 2024 can be.
Let's begin with transformational. Transformation is one of the key words often associated with Pluto, along with death, birth, and manipulation. Let's start with that last word, since it's potentially the most "sticky."
Whoah, manipulation?! Ick, ugh, damn, poop... are some words that hold a similar vibration as manipulation for me as i write. None of these are words I like to use unless need be. But here, we remember that Pluto rules Scorpio, the sign known for helping us to see beneath the surface. Pluto and Scorpio both work in optimal ways to show us things that are unconscious, and they are likely to show us manipulations in our lives so that we can release them.
This brings us to the first of the three words: transformation. This helps us get a sense of the "why" for Pluto: the why IS transformation!! The how is death/rebirth. The "what" is manipulation or misuse of energy.. whether that be wasted, controlled or suppressed energy, Pluto loves to show us where the energetic wires are crossed when they should be open and free flowing.
Moving onto the second word visionary. Visionary is a word often associated with the sign of Aquarius, along with radical, freedom, unconventional and weird! I find it interesting to consider the earlier connotation to the word weird in juxtaposition to how we collectively often see the word today. In The past weird was associated with Wyrd, which was associated with things occult, magical and supernatural. Weird was a term of affirmation and upliftment in comparison to its connotations today (which are currently being reclaimed :):) weird 20 years ago was a bad thing for conventional .. those of us who have been weird for a while know that weird actually means unique and creative and free. Which brings us to the words, freedom, radical and unconventional... now we see the intended true meaning of weird!
Finally expansion. When the notions of transformation and visionary combined together we are invited and supported in expanding! Expanding not only our consciousness, but also ourselves and our energetic offerings to the world. I offer a meditation in the podcast to support us in this type of radical expansion. Radical because it IS new and needed for us to expand and shine more brightly than ever before in our lives. Now now now!
