We present, first, the New Moon chart for January of 2015, set in Plano and unfiltered (with regard to aspects):

We note that this is a complex and active New Moon with many aspects.  The Moon/Sun conjoin at 0 Aquarius, a particularly potent point that follows similar new moons in recent months.  Before we go further, let us say this: this is one New Moon you will “feel.”  It will not come and go unnoticed.  At least one major shift will happen in your life near this date.

We note that another New Moon in Aquarius occurs February 18th.  That is similar to an astrological “blue moon” (second full moon in a particular sign), and occurs a few days after Mercury goes direct.  Expect to push forward at that time with new projects and ideas that come to you between now and then.

Picking “where to begin” is difficult, but we start by noting a “hard rectangle” pattern:

Pluto, Venus, Jupiter, and Hygeia are involved.  While each contributes, Pluto is particularly important because of its tight square with the north node (fate, karma), to be discussed next.

Venus and Jupiter are typically benevolent.  Hygeia puts a healthcare spin into the mix.  We expect the expected problems here, namely a flu epidemic that involves a strain that this year’s flu shot does not protect against.  (I am not making a major prediction; I am merely echoing a confirmation of what we already know.)  What might change with this new moon (NM) is that the mortality / morbidity rate may be a bit higher than “we” had expected.

Here are the squares and oppositions (“hard aspects”) associated with this NM.  We note that the Pluto/Node square is particularly tight (powerful) on this occasion:

We note that this Pluto / Node (Death / Karma) line particularly strongly affects the Middle East at this time:

Wonder how that will play out.

This NM has grand trines, and it almost has a kite:

Uranus / Juno / Pallas form this one, and we are not sure what to expect from that mix.  Uranus is surprises, Juno is trust issues, this source describes Pallas as “strategic command in both the warrior and the peaceful general.”  The North Node potentiates this mix in a “near kite”:

Some people will have great advantage from this New Moon.  Many will be compelled to action.

The West Indies are active and interesting with a Saturn / Jupiter (financial changes, probably favorable and possibly involving Wall Street in New York) crossing happening near Freeport, and Mars + Neptune lines passing through Puerto Rico (much change of some kind there!):

Cuba continues to be an active part of this mix as well.

The U.S. map is interesting.  A Pluto line passes through the U.S. but avoids most population centers (except Denver).  Baltimore, and points east, is highly activated.  Here is the U.S. map:

Here is the New Moon chart relocated to Baltimore.

Note that Mercury is near Ascendant, Saturn at Midheaven, and Jupiter on the Descendant.  This combination indicates certain kinds of highly precise operations of some kind, possibly financial operations.  Sagittarians with late November birthdays living in this region will be particularly affected.  So will mid August Leos and late January / early February Aquarians.

Here is the map for Europe and the UK:

Here is the map for Australia / New Zealand.  While the many lines mostly go through the sparsely populated interior, Mars and Neptune lines do affect Perth.  Tasmania is also activated:

Here is the ever complex Southeast Asia map.  We withhold commentary except to say that Indonesia is highly activated:

In summary, prepare yourself for a new adventure, and gather what you learn in this cycle for the next change of pace circa February 18th.
