Aquarius New Moon 2018
The Aquarius New Moon 2018 is exact at 1:05 PM PT on Thursday. When the Sun meets the Moon they enact the Royal Marriage, or conjuntio from Alchemy. Jung studied Alchemy extensively as an imaginative guide to the psyche. When the two become one they produce a third. That is the mystery and the beauty that stands behind the New Moon cycle. Each month, we have the opportunity to experience rebirth into a new self. This New Moon is also a partial Solar Eclipse. This is not as intense as a total Solar Eclipse, but it definitely increases the emotional and mysterious nature of the New Moon. Aquarius is fixed air. This is a sign that focuses on friendship, dreams, and wishes. This Aquarius New Moon 2018 is at 27.08° and conjoins Mercury and sextiles Uranus. The Mercury conjunction means that our minds and powers of observation are acute. The sextile from Uranus emphasizes the freedom-loving impulse of the Aquarius New Moon 2018.
