MOON IN AQUARIUS
What does the hungry Moon want when it’s in the sign of Aquarius? What are the emotional needs of the moody Moon in Aquarius? What does the Aquarian Moon need to feel happy and secure?
Aquarius energy doesn’t desire wisdom or safety necessarily–this energy seeks freedom and must not conform, not at any cost. Aquarian energy takes orders from no one and seeks, above all else, individuality.
Like Steve Forrest says, “Aquarius and conformity mix about as well as peace and nuclear warheads!”
When the Moon is in this sign, we’re liable to say what we see (and feel), regardless of the consequences, especially if it involves protecting our autonomy. And if that involves some sort of temporary exile, so be it. Aquarius is the truth sayer and revolutionist in us all and expresses itself in uncompromising ways. Aquarian energy does not compromise–no deals, especially if involves conforming to the expectations of society/culture, and even more especially if involves betraying one’s own personal identity.
Freedom at all costs is the name of the game and if it causes hurt or broken hearts, so be it–that’s the mood of the Aquarian Moon.
We may find that we think in different ways when the Moon is in Aquarius and we’re all the more apt to defend what we believe is truth. If the perceptions are valid, fine. But sometimes there can be a stubbornness that is not only unwarranted but is excessively eccentric and ridiculously rebellious.
When the Moon is in Aquarius, people may come off to others as being cold or indifferent. But it’s probably just a mood prompted by the sensitivity toward maintaining a sense of freedom and individuality. Unless we’re with a group of like-minded individuals who see the world the way we do.
Aquarius rules (is the natural ruler of) the 11th house of community and friends… it is also associated with hopes and dreams (goals). The 11th is about aspirations that give meaning to daily life and it’s also about connecting with people of like-mind. Some of those themes could come into play when the Moon is in Aquarius. Sort of like hungry to be with people who support our dreams and aspirations–this will satisfy the emotional needs of the hungry Aquarian Moon.
How to work in harmony with the Aquarian Moon? Be aware of how other’s may be sensitive to maintaining their sense of freedom and individuality. Give your partner or family their space if they need it. And take space for yourself too if necessary–and don’t feel bad about it. You may not feel like conforming to the expectations of the clan. Know that any rebellious or eccentric behavior (on your part or others) is likely to be temporary; for the next few days. Hang out with like-minded friends and work on your dreams and aspirations–the Moon will help you out with all that!
These are just a few thoughts… maybe you can think of more. Opps, well I just did; forgot a few. The Moon in Aquarius would likely trigger our sentiments toward anything or anyone with a “humanitarian” calling. And one more, and it’s a big one (how did I forget?)–OBJECTIVITY! We see the opposite in the polarity to Aquarius (Leo), which is very subjective energy (it’s all about me). The opposite then, has to do with the ‘others’ and usually the others in the clan or community–so this may be an emotional calling when the Moon is traveling through Aquarius and the internal (albeit sometimes subconscious mood) could involve humanity or humanitarian causes.
