Global Hot Spot: The Aquarius New Moon on Friday February 9, 2024

Dateline February 8, 2024: For those of you who are now enjoying the Astrology Cosmic Kalendar App one day at a time – but who have not yet subscribed to be able to look several weeks into the future – here is the calendar entry for a very significant date Friday February 9 and the day after. Because every day – beyond the current 24 hours that we define as one rotation of our celestial orb on its axis – has astro-zodiacal magic, mystery and wonder is why thousands of people around the world have been tuning into the Astrological Cosmic Kalendar for the last 42 years and since it was at the heart-center of our Welcome to Planet Earth pioneering astrology newspaper/magazine during the 1980s and 1990s.

The Aquarius New Moon – which arrives at 3:00pm PST on Friday February 9 – represents a super-charged energy-field that will dominate the psychic atmosphere of humanity and Mother Earth during the next 2 weeks until the Pisces-Virgo Full Moon arrives on the scene on Saturday February 24. At this Aquarius New Moon, all the traditional themes of the eleventh sign of the zodiac will be present and your job as an enlightened earthling is to take the best of these deeply-transformational archetypes and turn them into soul-uplifting vibrations that reshape the direction of our beloved home planet for the Highest Good.

In addition, inside this feature see the World Map of solar, lunar and planetary rising/setting above/below lines for this Aquarius New Moon as well as the horoscope calculated for Washington, D.C. 

When looking at the horoscope calculated for Washington, D.C., note the following very important planetary placements. The big celestial news at this monthly New Moon is that Uranus at 19+ degrees of Taurus is conjunct the powerful Midheaven or 10th house cusp, plus Uranus has been united with the USA Vesta placement for many weeks and will be on our Vesta over the next few weeks. Uranus has an 84-year cycle through the zodiac and the last time Uranus was on our nation’s Vesta placement was in 1939-1940 at the start of World War II.

The asteroid Vesta is virtually motionless as this celestial orb has just halted its reversal in the heavens to move into direct motion on the USA Mars at 22 degrees Gemini on February 8. Stationary planets wield what we might refer to as Superpowers that can be certainly utilized for the enormous benefit of humanity and Mother Earth. Regarding the potency of Vesta, look over this list of its major themes – safety and security, home and hearth, insurance coverage and rates, investment planning, fellowship and sisterhood gatherings, stoves and chimneys, first-aid, clandestine, occult or secret organizations (i.e. FBI, CIA, NSA, Freemasons, Sororities, Fraternities), the Eternal Flame of ancient temples and memorials. 

More about this Aquarius New Moon: The red planet Mars at 28 degrees of Capricorn is exactly conjunct the USA Pluto while Saturn at 8 degrees Pisces is activating the USA Ceres-Uranus intense square aspect. All of the above helps to explain the volatile conditions America is now involved in around the Middle East, the Red Sea and our own southern border. This Aquarius New Moon chart calculated for Washington, D.C. certainly focuses attention on the crucial decisions that our political leaders and the Supreme Court are embroiled with in our nation’s capital.

We are providing two entries from the Astrological Cosmic Kalendar App – for Friday February 9 and Saturday February 10– so you can read more about how this New Moon is influencing you personally and how you can take advantage of the various solar, lunar and planetary alignments to invigorate your life-purpose and higher-destiny patterns in a superlative manner.

Cosmic Kalendar Entries for Friday February 9 and Saturday February 10  (Times listed are in PST.)

Friday February 9  If you were looking for a solar-lunar union in Aquarius without a lot of stellar high-jinks, this is not that kind of heavenly occurrence. As indicated in Thursday’s calendar entry, the dark-of-the-moon monthly phase holds court until the New Moon happens at 21 degrees of Aquarius (3:00pm). However, before and after this time, many celestial alignments are in effect and the forward-momentum building vibes from the Sun-Moon merger are shaken up somewhat as a 14+ hour void lunar limbo cycle begins right at 3:00pm and continues until Saturday when the Moon enters mutable-water sign Pisces (5:43am). Do your very best to utilize the New Moon as a springboard for success over the next 29.5-day solar-lunar cycle. Celestial enhancements include the Moon parallel Venus (1:26am) and the Moon in Aquarius forming a supportive, 60-degree sextile alliance with healing-maestro Chiron in Aries (8:07am), plus Mercury in Aquarius making an inspirational, 72-degree quintile link to the Mean Lunar North Node in Aries (5:19am) and another 72-degree quintile connection between Pallas Athena in Sagittarius and Juno in Virgo (3:12pm). Watch out for a potential rise in tensions when Mercury forms a frictional, 135-degree link to Vesta in Gemini (4:50am) while nearly 12 hours later Venus in Capricorn makes an oblique, 150-degree tie to Vesta, now direct, in Gemini (4:04pm). Some of today’s celestial free-for-all can be a reminder of the aphorism “if you can’t take the heat, stay out of the kitchen.” Get ready for a 90-degree square between Mercury in Aquarius and Jupiter in Taurus tomorrow morning along with two other challenging sky cycles and a harmonious trine between the Sun and asteroid Vesta in air signs. Note: The Chinese Lunar New Year will be in effect over this weekend bringing the Wood Dragon archetypes to influence the next 12 months. [Note to readers: All times are calculated for Pacific Standard Time. Be sure to adjust all times according to your own local time so the alignments noted above will be exact for your location.] 

Saturday February 10  With the Moon void in Aquarius, Mercury in Aquarius squares Jupiter in Taurus (5:26am). While 90-degree aspects are usually considered as difficult by many astrologers, they can be utilized for hard work that needs to be accomplished. In this respect the hard work is in the fields of communications, literary, educational, and business pursuits. Once the Moon enters mutable-water Pisces (5:43am) for the next two days, reach out a helping hand to the truly needy. Compassion is the operative word and this is amplified as the Moon forms a supportive, 60-degree sextile alliance with nurturing Ceres in Capricorn (7:32am). While tensions can develop as Venus in Capricorn makes a 45-degree link to Saturn in Pisces (7:54am) and Pallas Athena in Sagittarius forms a 135-degree tie to Chiron in Aries (11:06pm), the Sun in Aquarius forms a harmonious trine to Vesta in Gemini (4:48pm) which can be a boost for soul-sister bonds, fellowship gatherings as well as investment planning and focusing attention on safety-security measures around your residence and office environment. The monthly Moon-Saturn union in Pisces (5:46pm) can help you reinforce professional gains made on February 6 & 7 when the Moon was in Saturn-ruled Capricorn. The Moon forming a supportive, 60-degree sextile alliance with Jupiter in Taurus (7:06pm) is a reminder that the Power of Positive Thinking is within your grasp. Note: The Chinese Lunar New Year of the Wood Dragon now begins and lasts until January 28, 2025. [Note to readers: All times are calculated for Pacific Standard Time. Be sure to adjust all times according to your own local time so the alignments noted above will be exact for your location.]
