Wednesday, OCTOBER 6
The New Moon occurs this morning in the sign of Libra. This is a time to re-balance our relationships and recognize our partners as teammates rather than adversaries. With this potent Libra energy, we have the chance to make valuable changes in our lives. We’re learning to make peace with others and establish a sense of order and balance in our lives.
Peace and harmony are the goals, but there’s a delicate balancing act involved along the way that requires some commitment and effort. This New Moon brings fresh and creative energy into our lives, and more specifically, our relationships. It’s a cycle in which balancing our close personal relationships becomes an urgent desire.
Even so, the route to peace may be a conflict-ridden one! New beginnings with relationships, negotiations, or contracts can involve some challenges and looking back before moving forward.
Both Mars and the Sun form a quincunx to Uranus today (the Sun and Mars are heading toward alignment, exact early on the 8th). We could be dealing with minor changes of plans or a restless urge for change that interferes with the flow. Some fear of change can stop us in our tracks, temporarily. Our efforts to satisfy our desires can miss the mark, but this gives us a chance to make refinements and recalibrate.
Today’s Venus-Mars semi-square can add to a tense and competitive environment. This transit has a way of highlighting differences in our approaches, desires, and needs, and tensions in relationships can result.
As well, Pluto stations and turns direct today, and there can be inner rumblings as we sense something is coming. Pluto’s direct turn comes now after over five months of retrograde motion (Pluto turned retrograde on April 27th), and its station adds intensity to all we do and feel today and this week. Over the coming weeks, our power to make profound changes in our lives is more externalized, insistent, and direct. We are less likely to brood over changes that we feel were thrust upon us and more likely to take things into our own hands and make necessary changes.
For now, we can feel on the fence.
