I write to you from an Amtrak train heading back home from the Occult Humanities Conference at New York University. I had a great weekend meeting many new people and seeing friends, attending amazing presentations, and being in the presence of the work of magickal artists long admired. So inspiring! The train to Boston from NYC seems to be chugging along pretty well so far, despite the blizzard-like conditions that are forecasted to continue. It's a beautiful sight from my window! The internet has been cutting in and out, so in addition to the travel, there's been a delay in posting today. But here we are...
And its the New Moon! This one is electric, though it should probably be said that New Moons are energetic low points in some ways. Though it is a new beginning, it is also when the Moon does not have a great deal of energy. So the emotional pull is inward, bringing the conscious Will together with the unconscious emotional interior. It's a great moment to take a pause and notice your thoughts and feelings, seeing where you might be on automatic pilot. Maybe you can more consciously direct where things go. Or, maybe you need to just cry or have a fit. We're entitled to just be where we are.
You could experience conflicting drives today, as the Aquarius Sun/Moon squares Scorpio Mars. Or, conflict with someone else (same thing?). Rationality vs. Passion. Mental clarity vs. Emotional complexity. Distance vs. Intimacy. Friends vs. Lovers.
There are other points of view to consider, and some motivations can be hidden.
