Libra New Moon

4 Oct

This New Moon is in Libra, the sign of balance and harmony and that is precisely what is difficult to come by now.  Since this particular Moon gets herself in a tangle with the ongoing square of Uranus and Pluto, this could be a very unsettling time.  We may be looking for peace, equality, agreements, justice or compromises but it won’t come easy and probably not without some surprises or reversals.  It could be that an opponent or competitor isn’t playing fair or comes out of nowhere and takes you by surprise.  Relationships could also be strained or difficult. 

Saturn in Scorpio and Uranus in Aries are in a quincunx aspect with one another at the time of this New Moon. This is their third meeting. This suggests that there is an adjustment needed between the old and the new as there have been many endings and beginnings and ‘new norms’ that we are still getting used to.  We know that there are old ways that aren’t working for us any longer but we’re still figuring out new ways that will actually work. We’re still in the process of deciding what to eliminate and what’s worth salvaging.  Uranus in Aries wants to be revolutionary and do it his way or on his own and wants it done quickly while Saturn in Scorpio is on a power trip and pulling rank saying “not so fast” being slow and very thorough.  It would work better to be able to initiate changes while eliminating the things holding us back, building trust and lasting structures that are progressive enough to move us forward.   

Mercury entered Scorpio at the end of September having our thoughts and conversations getting deep and penetrating to the core, possibly leaning toward being obsessive.  There could even be morbid thoughts, talks of death, wills, estates, insurance and contracts may be on the forefront of your mind at this time as well as financial talks where there is jointly held money or where trust is an issue.  Agreements tend to be all or nothing and it is possible there is some kind of ultimatum. Mercury meets up with the North Node within hours of this New Moon so thoughts, conversations, contracts etc hint at the path of the future.  Pay attention to these things at this time.

The New Moon is at 11’ 56” Libra and the Sabian Symbol is “Miners emerging from a mine”.  It seems we’ve been doing some digging around in the dark, to come into to the light.  It may hurt our eyes at first as we are still adjusting but if we’re lucky, maybe we’ve uncovered a few gems or something of value.
