Our Libra New Moon is the very day before Venus, in Scorpio, Retrogrades. New Moons are symbolic of ‘lights out!’ Time to see in the dark. Get used to the low light. Operate on intuition. Let go, start new. Venus is Libra’s planet, so we will be pondering, and sensually be feeling, if what we thought we wanted at the New Moon, feels like what we thought we want, for a good 41 days. Thought and texture need an alignment. Is it sand paper or silk?
This New Moon chart, Thursday Oct 7 at 11.44 AM Pacific, at 14 degrees Libra, has a Libra Stellium – 4 planets in Libra, Sun, Moon, Mercury and Saturn! That is four ways to learn about relationships, bringing balance, negotiating, doing public relations, seeking social justice. The Sun goes for heart and creative expression. The Moon nurtures and protects. Mercury tells the story, wondering how to think, how to say it. Saturn wants to do a good job, not waste time, take charge, Father it in.
The New Moon pair are woven with Venus and Mars, at 13 and 15 degrees of Scorpio! Relationships must have a deeper power, with a deeper love and grace, and the ability to take the action needed to defend and champion what was hidden but what has come to light in the last couple of days, last few hours! Let go of selfish vendettas, grumbling over not getting your way when you thought you had rights. See what can be shared, or if necessary, just stay quiet behind the scenes, yet, gradually, ever so carefully, proceeding until what you want known can be shown. The changes, the release, may be profound. There is likely to be a vulnerability as you come out into the open. It may pay to have a good friend literally stand by you.
Along with this, several factors in the chart are at 26 and 27 degrees. Makes for a tight chart. Neptune, Chiron in Aquarius and Jupiter in Pisces are at 26. The 26th degree is always important because it is the degree of the Galactic Center! Please see the ItsAstroLogical Newsletter 83, that was when they were all in Aquarius. Neptune and Chiron still are. Jupiter is now joined with Uranus, Uranus at the 27th degree, both in Pisces. Pisces is magic! Music, art, dreams and rest, spas, the Ocean – sports and sea commerce, and, on the sad side, addictions, denial, victims. Uranus breaks up old subtle patterns, like a scatter frequency! Thinking just doesn’t hold water in this case! Uranus is ahead of its time, the awakener, world community networker, the internet! Pisces really is Oceanic, and intuitive psychic perception is miracle matter, permeates even the unseen! Time is fractured to the future, meaning, new IS! Research and inventions are flying! Get onboard, and don’t let go! This is a ride you don’t want to miss!
