New Moon 1 degree of Libra
Wednesday 24
1:14am Chicago
7:14am London
6:14pm Wellington

New Moon in Libra sextile Mars in Sagittarius delivers one-on-one partnership and relationship changes.  Pluto stations direct shortly before, is square New Moon (wide orb of 10 – both luminaries ! )

Shifts in balance are most definitely incoming likely in regards to work/love/money and energetic trades.  Bonds and contracts both spoken and unspoken are engaging equality and juggling the facts, swinging the sword of justice.

This New Moon opens the window into not only a Grand Fire Trine (involving Mars in Sagittarius, Jupiter in Leo and Uranus in Aries) but also eclipse season – Oct 8 Lunar Aries & 23 Scorpio Solar (USA) more on those later.

Jupiter trine Uranus in addition to both trine Mars in Sagittarius amps up courage and passion to excel – sensitives start feeling energetic rush at New Moon.  This restless sky fires UP inspirations, creativity with a triple dash of guts and gumption.  We are getting the lead right out of any and all stagnant/low qi/draining situations that are no longer tolerable.

Be it forward or backward – this Libra New Moon demands balance be paid.
North Node of Destiny in Libra – fairness must be functioning for all to flourish.
Start anew in tandem with New Moon times above.

peace

pause to reflect

New Moon in Libra
Moon is void of course until it enters Scorpio at 7:06pm this evening CST, USA

Full Moon in Taurus
Monday October 29, 2:49pm CST, USA
:::::::::::::::::::::::::::::

New Moon signals a time of new beginnings; void moons a time of contemplation and insight.  

This Libra New Moon delivered me off the scale fluctuation of feelings, restoration of balance using the sword of truth . . . rapid-fire insights were incoming from all quarters.

Did you feel a shake up in your Libra house ?

Libra is my MC, Moon passed over my Merc on the way to the new phase – so women, public and my thoughts and feelings surrounding relationships, balance and reciprocation were either folding themselves up for good, or spreading their wings to fly like paper cranes all around me.

Beautiful Venus does love her mirrors.

When I drew the Mirror card in the Wild Wood Tarot it perfectly described my fluctuating thoughts, feelings, and perceptions revolving around status, power, fame and friendship during this moon phase.

She also describes qualities of both luminaries meeting in the sign of balance and fairness – the house of others.

Unlike the Hooded Man who chooses solitude, the Mirror indicates being forced to surrender personal will, forced to be open to the ways of the universe, forced to quietly, patiently await for insights to reveal themselves as they will.
::::::::::::::::::
The Mirror sees both sides, she is uniquely attuned to both the inner and outer realms.
She is aligned with the Hangman, sacrifice, insight, Odin and the runic alphabet.
The Mirror is the Lady of the Lake, keeper of the magikcal sword, Excalibur.

Swords represent AIR: thought, insight, clarity, truth and justice.  Very Libra.

The mirror brings gifts of emotional growth, clarity of purpose, the bare truth of subconscious made manifest in waking life.  She reflects a wounding, the keen instincts and insights that come from passing through the dangers of the shadow world where warriors seek enlightenment.  She is dual, polarity and reveals a complete shift in awareness.

Is this not true of all relationships ?

What was one (Sun), now becomes two (Moon), the shift in balance is ongoing thereafter.  Diplomacy and compromise, bonds and contracts, love and war are also present in the world of Libra, the world of two, the world of mirrors. (First house Aries – ME opposes seventh house Libra YOU.)  Oppositions often play themselves out in the form of projection / reflection. 

Libra New Moon (conjunct Sun – all new moons are conjunct Sun) is particularly geared for understanding developing relationships and creatively loving the seed of willpower that lies deep within ourselves.

Although every moment holds the promise of change, New Moons accentuate this promise, they urge us forward in the process by holding up the mirror to ourselves.

During New Moons we (conscious – solar / subconscious – lunar) are side by side looking into the mirror : two FEELS more like ONE.  Instinct and will are a team, setting intentions for growth during the coming lunar cycle.

New Moons force us to grow into the knowledge of the next full moon.

During Full Moons two FEELS more like TWO, because we are at odds with the other side of ourselves, at odds with the reflection, at odds with the OTHER.  (Full Moons are always opposite Sun) Instinct and will are in peace talks, they are AWARE of their separateness.  Understanding, illumination and growth is at a peak – knowledge courses in from all sectors.

The Full lunar orb reflects / mirrors the rays of the solar force.
Instinct and willpower are eyeball to eyeball.
Subconscious self SEES the conscious self SEES the subconscious self.
Our creations are locked and loaded – visible.
Full Moon illumination – new moon intentions – are manifest, realized.

One becomes Two.
Choice is inevitable.
Everything changes.
 :::::::::::::::::::::::
I choose the way of the Jedi.
I will use The FORCE for defense only.
I choose balance.
I choose peace.
I choose love.

namaste
May the Force be with you.

Manifest Destiny

Pictured below is Pluto, yes Pluto.  Not space object whatever downgrade term it got smacked with.  Check some of the Pluto posts here if you doubt this tiny planets whallop on the natal chart.

~~~~~~~~~~~~
I have it conjunct Sun/Uranus, trine Moon, trust me it has power, no matter what you call it.  Don’t let that freak you out, though.  Pluto rules metamorphosis and rebirth ~> think phoenix, or caterpillar to butterfly.
Not easy, but worth it !
Now on with the sky show…

~~~~~~~~~~~
11:00 UT, (6:00 CST) we will have a big pile up in the Cardinal (activity, action) Air sign (thinking, speaking) of Libra.  Two degree Mercury conjunct New Moon, and Moon conjunct Sun at 4 degrees- all square Pluto at 4 degrees.  Mercury is at 2 degrees opposite Uranus at 2 degrees, with Sun and New Moon opposite as well.  Uranus squares Pluto.  Those are some stressful aspects, but what growth isn’t..?

Look at it this way…

1= seeds, new beginnings   2=balance, duality    4= stability    5=change
6= harmony within flux  8= strength, new priorities  9=mystical, closure

The healers Chiron & Neptune are seeds, new beginnings.
Mercury (thoughts, communication) and Uranus (change) are balance, duality.
Saturn (responsibility) and Jupiter (visionary ideas) are mystical closure.
Mars (action) is change.
Venus (love, kindness) is harmony within flux.
Sun, Moon and Pluto are stability.
North Node of Destiny is strength and setting new priorities in the sign of Sagittarius the seekers of Universal Truth.

Quintiles are spiritual gifts straight from the universe.  There are several in the sky above… Venus Q Mars….Mars Q Saturn…Jupiter Q Neptune…Neptune Q North Node of Destiny (note that Jupiter and Neptune are bi-Q Sun, Moon, and Mercury as well)

This is a great chance to get some power behind all those thoughts of love, peace, equality, healing so they can manifest into your destiny.  The planet of action (Mars) is creating tension (change) from Leo of the Heart to the biggest planet in our sky the greater benefic, Jupiter in the dependable sign of Taurus that Venus (Love) rules.

Mars (action) is trine (harmony) changeable Uranus and sextile (opportunity) Sun, New (manifestation) Moon and Mercury (conscious, unconscious, thinking) in the Cardinal (active, initiatory) sign of balance, the sign of relationships, Libra.

Jupiter, Uranus, Neptune and Chiron are all Rx (retrograde), so these are changes that will perhaps bloom slowly, but are worth the effort.

The Dharma wheel represents the teachings of Buddha.  The wheel is round symbolizing the completeness of Buddhas teachings, the spokes are wisdom, the hub is discipline, nirvana.

Four Noble Truths

1. Life means suffering
2. The origin of suffering is attachment
3. The cessation of suffering is attainable.
4. The path to non-attachment, the Eight-fold path. (Middle Path)

The Noble Eight-fold path

1.  Right View
2.  Right Intention
3.  Right Speech
4.  Right Action
5.  Right Livelihood
6.  Right Effort
7.  Right Mindfulness
8.  Right Concentration

The Middle path is walking in balance between the worlds of self-indulgence and self-denial.  Through discipline of the heart and mind, nirvana may be reached by realizing all things are transient.
It is the art of  l e t t i n g   g o  . . .

Sun (ego) continues to oppose Uranus (changes) as both square (tension) Pluto (death and rebirth).
It is soon a dark moon and time to release the old and manifest the new.
All blessings to you in this dark moon of change.
