The New Moon in Libra on October 7th is demanding the necessity to formulate new roles, new standards and new partnerships. Libra is the Goddess of relationships and her ruling planet Venus the Goddess of love, beauty and wealth are insisting we substantially upgrade our relationships. October is a time to stop and hit the reset button on our attitudes, assets and alliances. The New Moon is compelling us to adjust our affections, our friendships, and our work relationships. We will be changing and modifying our loyalties so that we can live and function more effectively and successfully. It may feel chaotic, confusing and uncomfortable at times, as we shift, adjust, and adapt our personal loyalties in keeping up with the swift changes of our social and economic situations. The Sun in Libra is emphasizing our area of growth over the next two years with Saturn in Libra. Wherever the transiting Sun and Saturn falls in your natal chart is where you are compelled to change, grow and evolve.
Venus the ruler of both Libra and Taurus is going retrograde in Scorpio less than 24 hours after the New Moon, highlighting the need to change how we do business and relationships. Because of Venus in retrograde motion, Venus spends five months (August 6, 2010 to January 7, 2011) transiting both Libra and Scorpio –the two signs most concerned with relationships, wealth and power. Venus retrograde gives us the opportunity to reevaluate the substance in each relationship, contract and situation to see if it aligns with our core values and truth. If it is not a match, it will not work. The rules of the road can change at lightning speed and you can find yourself pivoting in a new direction. Let go of old obligations and the expectations that are no longer serving you. Integrity is our spiritual backbone. Integrity is our shield and sword of protection from the ugliness in negative human behavior. It is our test to cultivate our inner power, fortify our character and strengthen the intuitive muscle. Do what makes you feel strong, safe and healthy. Practice patience with Self and others. We really are doing our best.
Venus in Libra wants to make love not war. Venus in Scorpio insists we face our shadow self (anger, self-doubt, insecurity and projections); including all of our issues around intimacy, money and power. Venus and Mars will remain together for twelve weeks this too is unprecedented igniting new social networks, new partnerships, and new alliances. The Libra New Moon chart is a couple’s party. We have all the planets partnered, starting with the Sun and Moon, Mars and Venus, Jupiter and Uranus, Neptune and Chiron, Pluto and the North Node. The cosmic message here is time to connect and reconnect for fun and work. There has never been a better moment for new starts in relationships, networking, education and travel. The universe will support our efforts if we do the groundwork, if we have commitment and self-discipline. We can form fortuitous alliances with those who are dedicated, hard working, practical, and committed. In fact, it is the key to our success now.
Adding to the mix, the New Moon has Venus, Jupiter, Uranus and Neptune retrograde creating an air of confusion and uncertainty. We have to apply trust and faith that we are on path and going in the right direction. I am being cautiously optimistic. I try to keep my Neptune in check so I do not get too excited followed by great disappointment. Saturn gets a bad rap being the deliverer of our karma and life lessons. Mr. Rules and Regulations; however, Saturn takes us to our goals and ideals. Neptune represents your highest ideals such as your ideal relationship, your ideal job, and your ideal place to live. Yet, Neptune does not give you the knowledge in how to get there. Neptune does not offer you the day-to-day practical tools in getting what you want. Saturn builds the road to your ideals and goals; through patience, perseverance and determination you can achieve your dreams. Saturn rules the tenth house of destiny, status, and profession in the world. Venus rules what you love: your attractions, flavor of ice cream, décor, style, your tastes and favorite smells. Venus retrograde compels us to reassess what is true for us. What do we really want and need to flourish? We are laying the groundwork for the next two years of growth and activity in our personal and professional lives.
October presents infinite possibilities and the opportunity to form substantial relationships. This positive energy is here to lift everyone and not just anyone sign. We have been in a phase of breakdown in our beliefs and institutions and with little forward movement. The tide has to pull back to make the new wave. When the tide is out to sea, there is no energy to build something new and wonderful. The energy and drive for the massive expansion needed to employ the millions has not been here, we see this in our new economy. However, that is about to change. We get the first of three new waves of light on 10-10-10, the second wave of light is 11-11-11 and the third wave will be 12-12-12. Each new wave of light will ignite the passion, the ambition, the brainpower and the expansion that we need to move forward and experience something amazing. This will be an empowering energy to uplift and inspire people to break out of the old roles, limiting structures, atrophy and move forward with the courage to resolve the current challenges. Breakdown is an accelerated method to completing our 3D (third dimension) karma. We can balance karma rapidly through health issues, job loss, relationship endings, and moving. Breakdown to breakthrough can be the next step into expanded consciousness, being effective and experiencing a happy life. Moreover, we do not always have to experience a breakdown to have a breakthrough. This is why it is so important not judge people for we do not know their soul story. For example, a child could be a highly advanced soul on a great mission, who chose a painful path of health issues, to teach his parents patience and compassion. The character building lessons the mother and father needed to graduate into higher consciousness—fourth dimension 4D. The universe is teaching us detachment from people, places and things, above all outcome. Money can no longer insulate us from the cleaning up we must do to advance. We are completing the old roles to make way for our new life. We are finishing our 3D contracts (soul agreements) and karma and life lessons so we graduate to 4D. We are creating the new 4D agreements, i.e., our new soul work, purpose and passion. We can experience deep, rich, thick and creamy soul love in partnership, and with our soul brothers and soul sisters. We are all one and connected to the One Source.
I think it is important to consider that the light stirs our darkness up, like coffee grounds in the bottom of our cup. Some people react to the increasing light with anger, rage, fear and frustration. Resisting their changes, the universe is requiring. If we do not judge each other, then we do not have to demonize those who do not agree with our position or beliefs. Right/wrong thinking is soooo 3D. Duality consciousness, I am right and therefore, you are wrong, 3D only allows for two positions. In fourth dimension, 4D there is triality consciousness. Triality consciousness creates the third position to every argument. There is a neutral and objective worldview. In this detached place, we can respect that, the other person does not have to be wrong to make me right. We can agree to disagree without forcing people to our position. In fact, we could both be right. The Law of Attraction states if we send out love. We will be in a position of receiving the blessings and abundance we desire. In truth, it does not matter what other people choose. It only matters what we are choosing. “If you are ending up where you want to be, what difference does it make whether you went fast or slow? Or what difference does it make whether it was painful before it got really good? Isn’t that the point of free will? You get to choose.” — Abraham
Love and Abundance,
