Forecast 1/30 

pygmalionThe impossible seems possible today (and indeed it is, we just always forget that). Enjoy the incubation of the grand vision and allow it to cook to the point where you can smell, taste and savor the ideal.

Although it may get a wobbly start, it is well-worth recording your goals today. Venus goes direct tomorrow when reserve starts to tip to receive.

The Aquarius New Moon occurs at 4:39 p.m. and packs a lot of power for the ability to follow through with a goal. Aquarius as a sign supports your biggest dreams and visions, the ones you may not even dare to articulate. These are the dreams that create our tomorrows, that break through the barriers of status quo- so dream!

Dream big! Ideally this New Moon can ride on the coattails of the big dreams begun with the New Year’s Moon.

The Sabian symbol** for this New Moon is: “Man tete-a-tete with his inspiration”.

This brings to mind the famous myth of Pygmalion, who so loved his statue of Galatea that the gods took pity on him and brought her to life. Since Pygmalion had beforehand abused the concept of a female partner as being worthy of his time, the goddess Venus had her hand in his coming to terms with his hubris.

Humbled by the love he felt, he became a good partner to the gift brought about by his own desire. This story reminds us that we do have the power to create the ultimate dream, but with it comes the responsibility of gratitude to be deserving of the gift. Without that, there is no magic and we don’t even recognize the gift before us.

Make your New Moon dream a big one.

** We are still in the process of understanding the Sabian symbols, which were channeled in 1925. The spiritualist astrologer Marc Edmund Jones, took Elsie Wheeler, a clairvoyant confined to a wheelchair to a San Diego park with a project. He put a symbol for each of the 360° of the zodiacal wheel on 360 cards. She proceeded to come up with visual phrases for each one of them. They were done in random order and they have a magic that is hard to decipher, yet feels totally right.
