Libra New Moon2022
The New Moon is on 25 September 4:54 PM EST at 2 degrees 48 minutes Libra.
Libra is a Cardinal air sign. It makes sense that it is a Cardinal sign as it begins around the Equinox. Cardinal signs like to begin things.
We have a new season and a new time of the mind. Air signs deal with thoughts and ideas. Venus-ruled Libra likes to think of love and beauty. It has an understanding, too, of the opposites of those qualities and everything in between.
We talk of balance with Libra. As the first of the signs in the second half of the astrological year - it is learning about balance through relationships of all kinds. It looks at light and dark, night and day, sea and shore, self and other.
It sees an interaction, a behavior, a way of presenting, and makes an internalized decision on how IT would like to interact, behave, to present - having evaluated what it has seen and experienced.
Mercury is retrograde until October 2nd. It is retrograde in Virgo now, so revision of what is true, what is useful, what is helpful and what is good for a laugh is in order.
Mars is in Mercury-ruled Gemini for months to come so it’s a good time to sync up thoughts and ideas with the actions that are taken.
Jupiter has recently entered Aries. The way we will expand into optimism, a wider view of things - is to allow the self to get in tune with natural law on the instinctual level. This will serve the individual AND, in turn, the whole.
What is Natural Law? It is the seasons turning, it is the wind blowing, the fire crackling, the water winding in the way it chooses down the stream to the sea. It is the pulsating vibration of the earth that we can sync up with if we but stand on, sit on, and walk with care and listening upon it. It is what feels right on an intuitive level.
The elements run instinctually, with wisdom. And so can we.
Libra’s polarity is to Aries. They are both Cardinal signs. They like to start things. At a new Moon each month, we can begin again. This new Moon is more potent for beginnings as we have just experienced the Equinox. The wheel is of the year is turning to a new season regardless of where we live upon it.
Most planets are in retrograde motion, so the energy can feel like resuming a project/relationship/plan rather than a stark new beginning.
Aries is the first sign of the zodiac and Libra is the seventh. Libra is the first of the socially-focused signs. It is learning who it is by joining with others. From Aries through Virgo the self is developing. In Libra, it starts to relate and to define who it is not simply from its own eye view but through the view and experiences of others.
What view are we observing in others, in the world at large now? What do we try on for size – in the mind, the heart, in our actions.
Instinctually, what suits us – our values, beliefs, desires? Libra is Venus- ruled, after all. In Venus-ruled Taurus we looked at the real sense of safety, security, and survival. In Libra, we run through the mind, the idea, and the aesthetic.
Much effort is undertaken in this world for the beauty that will be made or delivered as a result.
What is your instinctually and aesthetically-attuned eye leading you toward? What fills your heart up when you drink it in? What causes you to avert your gaze or, even to squeeze your eyes shut so hard a single tear is squeezed out.
These experiences - these intakes of images, ideas and sensations are calling for special attention at this time. They inform us of what is important to us – what we want more of, what we can leave behind and what is calking us to action.
Do we feel called to express devotion? Do we want to create something of beauty? Or do we find our fist raised in the air grasping a shorn lock of our hair in solidarity with our sisters around the world. 💪
Time will tell. This time will tell. Follow the beauty – be it harmonious, glorious, mundane, or shocking. True Beauty leads to the heart. In the heart beats the power that strengthens and transforms all.
I stand with women and those who stand with the women.
Lots of Libra love to you.
PISCES FULL MOON
September 10 2022 5:59 AM EST at 17 degrees 41 minutes Pisces.
Uranus is pretty much Sextile the Full Moon. Neptune, Pisces ruler is not conjunct the full moon at 24 degrees Pisces retrograde but is definitely in the vicinity.
Mars is also in the vicinity of a mutable square to the Sun and Moon at 11 degrees Gemini.
The Virgo Sun’s ruler, Mercury, starts a retrograde cycle at 8 degrees Libra at the full Moon. As it stations, Mercury is opposing Jupiter in Aries. We can instinctually, and with a different kind of optimism, experience a different way of thinking, a new way to approach the tasks and adventures that are daily life. We can ask to proceed in a way that feels more natural for us.
Perhaps we have taken in a lot of outside information. We can take this time to sift through our own thoughts and ideas – weaving new ideas with treasured beliefs. We can release the info that doesn’t meet our internal truth detector test.
Mars is in Mercury-ruled Gemini until next year. It is an opportunity to make sure our actions – Mars – are in alignment with our personal truth. We can be aligned according to one’s own lights.
Certainly we are seeing the unmasking of those who don’t practice what they preach out in the world.
How can we bring our values, ideals, hopes and wishes into reality by living by our own thoughts and beliefs?
As the moon is full in Pisces and starts to wane toward a new Moon in Libra on 25 September, how can we move into an honest equilibrium and alignment. Can we calibrate our thoughts to our actions for our own good and the good of the whole. It could certainly be a big relief!
Mercury will dip back into Virgo and resume forward motion on 2 October so these next few weeks are a great time to get into step with ourselves unifying the mind, the thoughts, the beliefs, the actions, the self care, and the release of that which is simply not true for us. Phew! I like it. 🌻
We have the Pisces full Moon. Pisces, a mutable water sign ruled by Neptune, is the 12th and final sign of the zodiac.
As the 12th sign, it carries the wisdom and energy of all of the signs. We can experience a deeper understanding of the relationship our emotions have with our mental, spiritual and physical experience. Pay attention to what feelings are influencing the mind and body this weekend. More than ever, it is a good time to take epsom salt baths – even if it is a foot bath — as Pisces rules the feet. The purification and uptake of minerals is simple and helpful now. We have come almost through half the astrological year that starts with Aries.
We can review what we have felt, done and dreamed over the last six months.
With most planets in retrograde it is a good to for review, repair, release and many of the other “re” words. Tune into which ones work for you.
Pisces is our connection with spirit and we can say Virgo is how we go about our business on the Earth plane and our attitude toward that business.
How are we connected? Where are we wanting to take a break? Checking out can be a good thing. We may need to rest, recharge, regroup before we can even muster the energy to attend to daily life.
Pisces energy can key into love and compassion. With the opposition to Virgo we bring in healing.
It is a great time to give prayers or energetic offerings of purification and love to the Self first. We can imagine the full Pisces Moon shining on us in a lovely salt bath. Salt is a healer and purifier.
We can imagine that purifying bath being given to any persons, places and circumstances forward and backward in time and across all dimensions that come into our consciousness during this time of prayer or contemplation. Water is a conveyor of emotion. We can transmit our best and highest love and intentions to all people (that includes all living entities and those who have made their transition into the non physical), places and things at this time.
We can experience peace in this perfect temperature of water and we can allow good healing feelings to emanate out. The love is limitless. Those to whom we send this prayer can be numberless. Allow the self to be an ocean of space sitting in the pool of light that is the Pisces full Moon. If you can’t physically see the moon imagine it in the heart.
This exercise can be done any time of day and it can be done more than once over the coming days leading up to the equinox. This time of contemplation will bring us to a new experience of equilibrium, of balance and of clarity.
This will help us to prioritize in which areas we would like to focus our energies moving forward.
Dreams. True dreams. Heartfelt dreams. Real thoughts and beliefs. Personal revelation. Healing intentions. Useful actions. Release and respect for the emptied space to allow in the precious new.
Much love to all at this precious Pisces full Moon. Bathe in it. Swim in it. Release some dream bubbles and float.
