OCTOBER 6, 2018

Dear Friends,

It is time for all of us to grow up. Saturn is in Capricorn from December 19th, 2017 until the end of 2020. Let’s step up and take care of things. What’s fair? What about justice? Cooperation and balance. Do you have the proper give and take that is necessary to have a good relationship? With Venus, the ruler of both Taurus and Libra, in Scorpio she is making a statement. She is revealing what lies beneath the surface. Uranus is in Taurus bringing change. In Taurus is it all about what we are worth. Or, self-worth! Uranus is an awakener. Venus retrograde in Scorpio is dancing around in opposition to Uranus. First on September 12th before she went retrograde then after retrograde she ends up opposing Uranus a second time on October 31st. A third time will occur on November 30th. At that time Uranus will have moved back into Aries and Venus will have moved back into Libra.  The first and second opposition is to reveal or show us what we are worth and what we want to share. The third opposition is to bring the results. We will be aware of ourselves and the choices we have made. Lots of feedback. All of this is to help us restructure and set goals with Saturn in Capricorn.


THE SIGN LIBRA: The power to relate is the energy of Libra. Beauty, balance, harmony, equality, and justice are important where this is in your chart. This New Moon will let us know where we need to bring things into balance. All lessons of Libra involve the realization and integration of opposites, particularly those contrasts found within personal relationships. The primary purpose of this sign is one of sharing, sharing experiences, sharing your life and sharing with others. The house that Libra is on in your chart is where you need to develop balance between what you want and respect for others. Libra shows where you need relationships, which offer feedback.

This New Moon is taking place in the Aquarius section of Libra called a decanate. This is a fixed air sign. This is the sign of the rebel or the individualist. Old molds, old concepts, those things which have outgrown their usefulness, in every area of life, are being shattered. New ideas, brilliance, and new inventions show us a new way now. The house where Aquarius is in your chart is where you are encouraged not to conform. You are no longer limited by conventional boundaries; therefore, you are free to be different, to be inventive, and to be yourself. This is where you can be truly creative, truly unique, or contribute your utmost to humanitarian progress. You must dare to break away from established customs, to go one step further, and investigate the potentials of tomorrow.

This New Moon is also taking place in the Aries section of Libra called a dwad. Aries is the sign of the pioneer and new beginnings. Springtime. Fire signs are goal oriented and concerned with future opportunities. Fire signs are inspirational, and fire signs, more than all others, show where you need goals. Aries never forgets the fact that they were born to lead the way. This sign represents the need to become strong and comfortable with who you are. The house Aries is on in your chart shows through the experiences that house offers you discover more about yourself and what is possible.

Venus rules Libra and Venus went retrograde October 5th, 3 days ago, at 10 degrees Scorpio 50 minutes. Venus will go direct November 16th at 25 degrees Libra. Well, this New Moon in Libra gets us started by having us go back over a few things. Scorpio is all about sexual issues, control issues, investments, power and money. Looking deeper into your financial goals and what needs balance may be the key here. Where have you given your power away? What steps to take to even it all out will be revealed with this lunation. Saturn is in Capricorn is trine Uranus in Taurus. This is good for getting practical things handled. Last but not least Mars in Aquarius is square to Venus retrograde in Scorpio. This adds efficiency but impatience. This New Moon brings you the opportunity to set your intentions for better relationships and work on what requires balance.

This is a symbol of the superficially unfriendly relations which exist between man as a person and the totally impersonal forces of nature. The reversed symbolism emphasizes the cosmic integrity as a continual attempt on the part of its over-all ordering to restore each phase of reality to pristine conditions. Here is not so much a thwarting of human effort as a stimulation to new accomplishment, and a freedom from whatever has exceeded its usefulness. Implicit here is a challenge to pure individuality. The keyword is RESPITE. When positive, the degree is a joy in bringing every self-competence to the recurrent emergencies of life, and when negative, frustration as an excuse for inaction.  “Sabian Symbols” Marc Edmund Jones.
