While new moons always portend a push for new beginnings and growth, this particular new moon is packed with messages and energy! Libra, the 7th sign of the zodiac with its glyph of scales symbolizes harmony, peace, love and beauty in our relationships and environment. However this new moon also comes in as a ‘super-moon’, the 4th of 6 we’ll have this year. Super-moons happen when the moon is closest to the earth in either new or full expression, intensifying the gravitational pull on our emotions and our planet. As a result, the energy of whatever other planets are acutely involved in the configuration of a new moon is magnified.
For this Moon, Mercury, the messenger of the gods, is sitting next to it, suggesting that we need to think about what’s out of balance— but this is only part of the story. The Moon/Sun/Mercury are directly involved in the on-going Uranus/Pluto square. For a few days, all three oppose Uranus in Aries, the planet of revolution, bringing an intensity to the concept of evolution. In what ways do we need to think and act out of the box to move forward in a positive way?
Additionally, all three are squaring Pluto in Capricorn, which supports transformation in a way that is stable and sustainable. There’s a lot of pressure for change in this complete configuration; the Moon/Sun/Mercury opposing Uranus in Aries and squaring Pluto in Capricorn produces a ‘T-Square’ of high and intense energy. Squares are turning points and tend to represent internal process; oppositions can represent external process.
The circumstances of life in which this configuration takes place for each of us depends on the houses involved in our charts. Never-the-less, no matter which ones they are, we’re all being called to seriously consider a course correction in our thinking and actions. In other words, business as usual is no longer an option.
