New Moon in Libra 2015

The New Moon on October 12th is 19 degrees of Libra in an opposition with Uranus in Aries, prompting our liberation from many past ties, encumbrances and influences. Although the New Moon generally indicates a time of emotional renewal and new beginnings the urge is strong now to release ourselves from both physical chains and mental fetters of the past – to decondition ourselves from parental or societal imprints, to unlearn and even uncreate what has limited the expression of our uniqueness, our realness, and our truth.

Libra, as the sign of relationships highlights the closest and most meaningful connections we have whether to lovers, coworkers, family members, friends or foes. For those who have recently experienced tremendous loss or their relationships turning inside out in some way, this New Moon offers hope for a brighter future.article-2138126-12DECFD5000005DC-985_634x947

Squaring Pluto and inconjunct Chiron, the feelings leading up to and immediately after this Moon are raw and intense, as vulnerable as gaping wounds. Venus in Virgo slowly edges out of a square to Saturn in Sagittarius and opposes Neptune in Pisces, reminding us that “a broken heart is an open heart”.  However one chooses to interpret it, we are finally ready to heal what has been aching within us for centuries.

Mercury in Libra is now Direct after a retrograde cycle that lasted from September 17 to October 9, but the post-shadow influence continues until October 25. Mercury is in exact conjunction to the North Node which is about to shift into Virgo one month from now after being in Libra for a year and a half. We have these next few weeks to clear up misunderstandings with friends, partners and associates and to review the many things we have learned in our close relationships over the past several months.

Mars and Jupiter in Virgo are paired together in a trine to Pluto, giving us a kick-start back onto the desired path we may have wandered away from in a recent twist of events. More energy is becoming available for the things that are important to us, but we have a few obstacles to clear out of the way first. Thankfully, that job will be easier than it would have been say a few weeks ago. Conjunct the fixed star Zosma, Mars in Virgo can either blow up the woe-is-me mentality or stimulate the heroic qualities within us to help and rescue those who are suffering at the hands of others.

Under the influence of Zosma, especially with a hardass planet like Mars, we either victimize, are victimized, or help to release others from victimization. The recent gun control issue in the USA for example is something that more people could afford a closer look at before exhibiting all their knee-jerk reactions. Gun or no gun is not the issue. The issue is that too many people are brainwashed by false statistics, not to mention who does what with their guns. Guns are designed for only two things – to injure or to kill. We need to recognize that in many cases, guns have saved lives, and guns have saved people from being raped or attacked. We need to remember that sometimes the guns that saved lives were not in the hands of police officers and that some police officers have attacked innocent people who became victims of the legal system. The biggest crimes are those committed by those who amass the greatest amounts of power and control over the populace, and the scariest part is that these crimes are often performed without recognizable weapons. Wake up America!

Saturn in Sagittarius in a trine with Vesta in Aries helps to bring our loftiest visions into manifestation and the inspiration to make each place that we inhabit our sanctuary, treating it with respect and gratitude. This influence is present before, during and immediately after the New Moon. Wherever we may live or travel, our relationship to home life is transforming and expanding to include greater and deeper representations of our spiritual realities. With Saturn in Sagittarius for the next couple of years the roles of the teacher, healer, shaman, priest, and priestess are becoming exalted, both internally and externally.

Overall this New Moon in Libra on October 12 is a time of reclaiming, reconnection, and regeneration both within ourselves and in relation to those we care deeply about.

Libra Equinox – The Power of Relationship

The New Moon on September 23rd of 2014 has a tone of potency and almost urgency about it. At just over 1 degree of Libra it forms a conjunction to the Super Galactic Center (SGC) – a voracious black hole that gravitationally organizes over thirty galaxies, our own included, as Philip Sedgwick has stated “at the cost of cannibalizing all of them”. This Autumn Equinox New Moon so close to the SGC indicates that we are being triggered toward a deeper understanding of our interrelatedness, as our relationships on Earth encompass so much more than mundane friendships and marriages, but include our extended family tree in all of life in this universe and even beyond. What does the word relationship mean to you and what sensations does it bring up? Right now we are evolving into both the question itself and the ever widening permeable answer.

There is a lot going on in the sign of Libra over the next few weeks and even months (you can tune in to my radio show on Tuesday morning the of the 23rd between 9:00 – 10:00 am PST for more info on the equinox, autumn season, and Libra/Aries polarity on KOWS radio), in addition to the Autumn Equinox with the Sun moving into this sign. Mercury has been in Libra since September first and Venus will enter on the 29th.

Libra, one of the most misunderstood signs is about relationship, and all that it entails. It indicates a duality between self and other, with emphasis on the give-and-take, the cause-and-effect, the positive and negative polarities within each relationship. In a word, we can say this sign is about Karma, particularly the growing sense of awareness or consciousness about karma and how it operates in our lives.

We have relationships to each other and also to seemingly inanimate objects that we use and abuse. We share relationships with the rocks, plants, trees, the homes we live in, with money, our neighbors, our audiences, our mail deliverers and internet servers, our perceived enemies, the planets and constellations and to this mysterious being some of us call God that we are all but extensions and reflections of.

We are shifting into the darker seasons with greater self-awareness than some of us have ever had before as well as the incentive to utilize and maximize both our latent and already manifest skills and abilities – and to do so in the spirit of cooperation. As lovely as it sounds this line of work is not for the faint of heart. We are achieving levels of success we didn’t know were possible before, that may even seem intimidating, disconcerting to our discontent. It is also exhilarating for those of us who have done the work to get where we are, and/or those willing to take up the challenge that life offers us now to create anew, driven by heart and soul. This is also the season of harvest, in which we will most certainly reap what we have sown.

Mercury has slowed down in Libra since the 14th for going Retrograde from October 4th to the 26th. Mercury enters Scorpio on September 27th, back-tracking into Libra on October 10th and completing its transit in this sign by November 8th.  Already you may have noticed quite a few miscommunications or irritating encounters with others that perhaps got under your skin or caused you to wonder “What’s in the air – did I – or did that girl get up on the wrong side of the bed or something?” Be careful about signing contracts or taking on new projects and agreements until the first week of November unless you don’t mind complications and delays. Ironically, Mercury is not necessarily at its kindest or most charming in the sign of Libra but can come across as simultaneously touchy and tough. There is also an underlying seriousness in our communications right now that thankfully can’t get too out of hand with Mars ablaze in fun-loving Sagittarius. Mars squaring Neptune during the past few days has added some colorful and bizarre additions to the mix.

With many hardships recently having passed and many blessings pouring in, we do not want to lose ourselves in either sorrow or ecstasy, anger or apathy, but to maintain a sort of non-attachment to objects and outcomes. We have gone from asking “Who am I” to now asking “Where do we go from here?” In Libra we need to keep it real and find a way to express our humanity, our truth, and our sense of justice without losing our cool. That’s all easier said than done, even though many with planets in this sign make it look like a piece of cake.

Libra is a sign that in its highest expression operates on the vibrational level of Ho’Oponopono, which is a Hawaiian practice for taking inner responsibility for whatever imbalances are both outwardly and inwardly perceived. The practice can awaken profound insights about our interconnectedness as well as lead to healing and transformation. The outer reflects the inner here quite quickly – thus indicating that the consciousness of the Law of Cause and Effect has become significantly heightened. We can either try to run and hide from that, blame others, or practice our own form of Ho’Oponopono. Here are a few relevant phrases to live by: “I’m sorry. Thank you. Please forgive me. I love you”

Pluto stations Direct after its annual six months of Retrogradation just before the New Moon occurs and approaches a square to it, and a T-square to rebellious Uranus in Aries. The collective creative impulse is greatly magnified as we seek to know and grow more fully aware of and into our purpose, as individuals and as a whole. We want to become more conscious and and on target with what kind of impact we have on those around us, as well as how we allow others to effect us.

Saturn’s continued mutual reception with Pluto and conjunction with Ceres in Scorpio during the New Moon emphasizes a need for many of us to reparent ourselves in regards to to emotional security, money, and the Mother Earth. Just as a black hole such as the SGC devours everything in sight, many of us in civilization have been born into a reality that bases its entire existence on consumerism and wastefulness of resources to the point of creating poverty on an otherwise rich and fertile planet.

The Sabian symbol for the New Moon of the 23rd is:

oneworld

“The transmutation of the fruits of the past experiences into the seed-realizations of the forever creative spirit; a repolarization of inner energies leading to a creative centralization of consciousness”

Creative centralization assists us in Manifestation, which is what we achieve more readily when we collaborate, cooperate and relate compassionately with others.
