New Moon in Libra, October 4/5th 2013
Once a year, we have a New Moon in Libra. This is a wonderful opportunity to look at all your relationships and see how you can achieve more balance and harmony. This includes not only your relationships with other people, but also your relationship with yourself, your money, your health, your work, your spirituality.
This New Moon at 11 degrees of Libra is extremely intense because it is activating a Grand Cross in the heavens.
Added to this mix, Mercury is now in Scorpio, and we are seeing the stubbornness of opposing factions in US politics who couldn’t come to an agreement. This resulted in the shutdown of the US government. The US is building up towards a crisis. If the parties cannot come to an agreement before October 17th about the debt ceiling, we will see shock waves reverberate around the world that will undoubtedly affect the global economy.
With oppositions and squares in cardinal signs, we’re going to see actions that stimulate a crisis.
The polarisation in the heavens is playing out in US politics.
Where is this polarisation occurring in your life? What parts of yourself do you need to accept and love and stop fighting with them? What needs to be integrated?
Out of every crisis can be the seeds of an opportunity.
The square from this New Moon to Pluto will probably trigger some intense emotions within you and this is a great time to examine your relationships and see if anything is out of balance. What or whom to you need to let go of in order to start afresh?
With this New Moon, this is a great time to plant intentions in your relationships. Because Libra is ruled by Venus there will be an increased desire for love, harmony and peace in your life at this time.
Good questions to ask yourself are: How can I have more balance in my relationships?
How can I find more beauty in the world around me?
How do I nurture, love, give and receive love?
Some of your relationships may be tested. Some may drift away, with others you may make stronger bonds. If this New Moon is occurring in your 7th house of relationships, you might have to be blunt, more direct with someone. Libra doesn’t like conflict and much prefers nicey nicey, but you may have to risk the relationship and say what is on your mind.
We are in the build-up to the eclipse season when on October 18th and November 3rd we’ll have a lunar eclipse in Aries and a solar eclipse in Scorpio, so events are accelerating and picking up speed. I’ll go into more detail about the eclipses over the next few months, but with the Full Moon Lunar Eclipse coming up in 2 weeks in Aries, both Libra and Aries will be activated in your chart.
Look at them as a pair. For example, if your 1st and 7th houses are being stimulated, your identity and how you relate to others will be the main theme.
In my chart, my 2nd and 8th houses are being triggered, so I’m looking at my values and my priorities. I am looking at enhancing the one room that I am living in. For the last several months, instead of curtains, I have used some pieces of material that I hang up every night on nails on the window frames. The lighting in the room isn’t really sufficient for long periods of work and study, and I would really like a carpet to take the chill off the floor. These are things that will improve the way I feel in my room and are a priority for me now. They won’t cost much, but they will make a difference in the way I feel, so they are worth doing. They haven’t been a priority before, but with this New Moon in Libra coming up, they are now!
If it’s activating your 3rd and 9th houses, it will relate to communication, local events, anything having to do with the law and court cases.
If it’s activating your 4th and 10th houses, you will have an opportunity to re-evaluate your home life, your stability, the people close to you and balance this with your career and your work.
In your 5th and 11th houses, it could affect your children, your business if you are self employed, dealing with large groups of people or on a team.
For your 6th and 12 houses, it could affect your health, your work, anything on a subconscious plane, your dreams, and any unresolved inner conflicts.
Libra craves beauty and harmony. Do something uplifting. It’s a good time to do anything artistic, creative, go to the movies, the theatre, a concert, make something beautiful, give someone a flower.
Reach out and make eye contact with as many people as you can. Smile from your heart at them and give them a feeling of appreciation and love. It really doesn’t matter whether you get a smile back, what’s most important is that you are reaching out to others and connecting, no matter who they are. In this process, you will feel much better inside of yourself.
Even though it may not always seem like it, we are all connected. Each day, as I go about my business, I try to see that spark of divinity in everyone I meet. No matter who I am interacting with, I am looking for the best in them and am sending them positive energy and love. This has made such a huge difference to my relationships.
And at the end of every day, just before I go to sleep, I evaluate my day and go over every single encounter. I ask myself, what could I have done better? What would I have done differently? By doing this before sleep, I find that I wake up with an increased awareness of my surroundings and the people I meet.
See what would work for you to connect more with people and to feel that spark of love for each and every person. It feels so good! We need more positive energy on our planet to see us through these turbulent times. If we can go viral with this, together we have the power to turn things around.
New Moon in Virgo, September 5th, 2013
New Moon in Virgo September 5th at 13 degrees – time to clean out your closets!
Once a month at each New Moon we get another chance to start afresh, to get rid of the old and to make a new beginning. The house in which the New Moon falls in your chart will show which life area has the focus for this new start, where you should be willing to discard what is not working for you, and where you have the opportunity to start anew.
I find that whenever I discard something that I no longer need or haven’t used in a long time, something better and more appropriate for me soon comes into my life. I let go of owning a house and a car when I left NZ, and now I feel much freer just renting a very small room and owning no car. It’s cheaper, less responsibility and if I really need a car, there are several car-sharing schemes where I can either get one for a few hours or a few days very inexpensively. It’s much less hassle than having to maintain the whole thing.
In fact, I think sharing resources is the way of the future. We don’t need to own everything ourselves. When we come into this world, we don’t own anything, but gradually we acquire things that we think are indispensable to our well-being. What a wonderful surprise it is when these so-called important things are taken away from us, or we choose to get rid of them, and we find that our lives are better as a result. This has certainly happened to me with my move from New Zealand to Austria.
Where does this New Moon in Virgo fall in your chart?
(If you are unsure or you don’t have your chart, get a free one from my website: https://yourastrologysigns.com/free-chart and look for 13 degrees of Virgo.)
This New Moon falls in my 8th house which means I need to take a fresh look at my financial situation, especially anything relating to banks and financial institutions. I had quite a shock this morning when I went to pay a couple of bills with cash at the bank, and their fee for the privilege was 9 Euros! (USD$12.00). I had no idea that my bank charged me such a large sum for paying a bill in cash.
So I went across the road to another bank, and they wanted an even bigger fee!
If this New Moon is falling in your 8th house, you might want to check all your outgoings and see if there are ways of reducing the fees you are paying to financial organisations. This could relate to your insurance, stocks and shares, taxes, banking, mortgage payments, savings you have in a bank.
If it falls in your 1st or 7th house, this will involve you taking a fresh look at your relationships. If it’s in your 1st house, then it’s about your relationship with yourself, and if it’s in the 7th house, then it’s your relationships with other people. If it’s in your 4th house, it could mean having a heart-to-heart with your friends or family and clearing the air, or it could mean decluttering and having a good sort out. Maybe you want to have a garage sale, or give things to charity or recycle them? If it’s in your 6th house, this is a clean sweep for your physical health giving you the opportunity to create new daily habits that support your well-being.
With the New Moon in Virgo, this is an opportunity to analyse each detail of your life. Look at every part and ask yourself – is this in balance? E.g. your health, your family and close relationships, your finances, your work and career, your spiritual growth. Virgo likes the details and this is a good time to bring everything into the open and look at it from a practical angle.
Keep in mind that Virgo is the nitpicker of the zodiac. Are you nitpicking at the same things again and again and going round in circles? Are you trying to be too much of a perfectionist about every single minute detail of your life? Wherever this New Moon is falling in your chart, think about this, and remember that you don’t have to be perfect!
