The New Moon on Monday follows a conjunction of the Sun to Mercury this weekend that has activated our intelligence and facilitated our reasoning. This New Moon is a majestic lunar event that includes not only the Sun and Moon, but also an exact conjunction of Mercury to Uranus within a degree of the Sun/Moon alignment.
Uranus is considered the “higher octave” of Mercury, and it represents the higher mind where Mercury represents the individual mind. Pisces, of course, rules over the realm of imagination and creativity, but also the spiritual connection that we all yearn for in one form or another. The creative impulse that is borne out of this New Moon is powerful and intelligent in its impact, and can be harnessed for great things.
New Moons are celebrated as times of new beginnings, and this New Moon is definitely worth planning for due to the inspiration that is unlocked here. The chart for the lunation shows an unaspected Venus in independent Aries which suggests that this is not so much time for collaboration as it is for initiating new ideas and new inner awakenings.
The influence of this New Moon will last for at least a few days until the Sun conjoins Uranus on the 17th, enhancing the sense of awakening and fresh newness in the air.
