What this blog is about...

This blog--Coming of Age in the Aquarian--has evolved into monthly reports of the new Moon/full Moon cycle for the upcoming month. These reports are usually published at the time of the current new Moon.

Charts are published with the monthly post and they're in the form of PDF files for you to download. There are two charts each for the new and full moons and two charts that show the relationship between the new or full moon to the U.S.'s natal chart. To see why I use the U.S. chart that has Scorpio rising, take a look at this article at Neptune Cafe.

Every three months calendars with astrological information are published, also for download.

My main purpose with this blog is to give you, the reader, information you will find useful in the coming month, particularly if you study or want to learn astrology. There is some interpretation of the charts included and references to interesting articles that relate to the current cycle or aspects in it.

Astrology is closely related to the sign Aquarius and many astrologers have Uranus, the planet that rules Aquarius, strongly placed in their charts.

2014 Cycle 8

image: cycle 8 new Moon chart

This cycle begins with the Sun and new Moon at 3° Leo 52′ and comes to fruition with the full Moon at 18° Aquarius 02′.

With this new Moon in Leo, a sign ruled by the Sun, issues are male-dominated, and recreation is highlighted. People influenced by Leo are playful, fiercely proud, and sometimes dramatic. As with many of the signs, a Leo person may be exactly opposite the natural tendencies of this sign. Leo's keywords are "I love."

Each new Moon indicates the start of a new cycle with promise of new opportunities. It's a time to try out new or different directions. This new Moon emphasizes taking a break, becoming more invested in creative self-expression, and finding your passion.
