Aquarius New Moon at 20° 40’
If the Internet really is ruled by Aquarius, then it totally did have a mind of its own with me today. Just like the fixed air sign. You ever find yourself reading an article and then feverishly clicking the hyperlinks; learning more and more about topic at hand? I went through four very different news sources today to find this idea today – “open and closed networks”. Aquarius is the sign of the network of people but I hadn’t quite yet wondered if there were distinctions of a network.
So in thinking about the New Moon in Aquarius, let us explore together. In order to understand the Aquarius “open network”, let us first cover the closed version. It’s a system of people who already know each other and are often tied together by the same industry, political affiliation, religion, alma matter etc. In these closed networks, it’s easier to be effective since you’re collaborating under a shared context so there’s theoretically some trust and mutual understanding. Michael Simmons shares that closed networks converge, “...on the same ways of seeing the world that confirm your own.”
In open networks, we collaborate and connect with people who are not in the same industry, politics, religion, and/or culture of origin. Interestingly, Simmons argues that closed networks are “...challenging, because it requires assimilating different and conflicting perspectives into one worldview which can often create feelings of loneliness.” The juice is worth the squeeze when understanding that open networks are the strongest indicator of professional success. With open networks, you’re uniting people with distinct experiences. You not only break free from the confines of a single group's echo chamber and prevent errors stemming from groupthink but also wield the capability to serve as a bridge or translator between various circles. This amalgamation of ideas from different fields unleashes immense creative potential. If this isn’t Aquarius I don’t know what is!
From the occasional loneliness to the innovative edge when integrating diverse ideas, I want you to ask yourself under the annual New Moon in this sign – could I stand to make my networks more open? The New Moon's square to Jupiter in Taurus signals a shift towards a more open and less closed network. The convergence of two fixed signs often triggers the swift formation of an echo chamber. However, by channeling the energy of the Saturn sextile to Jupiter, we unlock the potential within possibilities. This aspect substantiates that fostering collaboration amidst contrasts in character amplifies our capacity to collaborate across diverse groups. Such inclusivity becomes the cornerstone for gifting ourselves a competitive edge in any setting. As the New Moon reaches its exactness, we can navigate the currents of change, embracing openness and collaboration for a brighter and more dynamic future.
