All the wild horses gracefully silhouetted by the morning Sun and Moon. The wisdom teeming through their majesty conveys a sense of transcendent tranquility this morning. A sense that we have the capacity to accomplish absolutely anything we want to accomplish, as long as we don’t lose sight of how important the peace and tranquility of life really is. As Neptune stations on today’s New Moon at 4° Sagittarius, we feel compelled to commune with the owls, the horses, the sea, in hopes of understanding the wisdom of their medicine. Today is a prayer for what lies ahead. Bow to the skies and the sea and all that exists within.
Tonight at 11:39pm EDT we have a New Moon at 4° Scorpio opposing Uranus at 4° Taurus. At the same time, Mars and Saturn are squaring each other in Libra and Capricorn respectively. This is an extremely powerful New Moon centered around embodying the sacred through awakening our sexual forces. Harnessing these forces is a sensitive dance, however. There is electrifying turmoil in the reaches of our emotional body seeking outward expression. We are facing the most powerful sexual archetypes in a myriad of placements and aspects, so relationship dynamics are most pressing on this New Moon. Our passions and perversions may swing wildly across boundaries into shadows we have repressed deep within our emotional bodies. Because of this, we need to ground ourselves and value some moments alone to recognize these feelings and desires, allow them to lose their affiliation with language, and harness them through heart-centered alignment of the elemental bodies. Our roots may be blocked or unleashed, and our minds may be stagnant or rampant, but whatever the case, open the channels and valleys to allow an uninhibited flow of these tsunamic forces through our physical, emotional, mental, and etheric bodies so they may come back into healthy alignment. We are about to upgrade our journey through life. How do you intend to do that?
The New Moon in Libra on Saturday (2:26pm EDT at 5°20′) presents us with an opportunity to witness and integrate the differences and polarities we face in everyday life, especially with others. Integrating these polarities involves more work than witnessing them, but the latter is the catalyst to the former. When we recognize them, we can begin to process and understand how they intertwine with our lives, and then yield to it all in order to manifest our intentions together.
The power of Sun and Moon together in Libra allows us to see all sides of situations and reconcile them in the name of spirit and unification. Libra is ruled by Venus, who is so beautifully transiting her own sign of Libra right now, as is Mercury, further enriching the potency of these unifying principles. It is a time when our capacity to do this is strongest. Look around yourself and notice things, people, or ideologies that you may not like. Though many of these may be very difficult to reconcile, the purpose of the practice of doing so is akin to the Tao, “When two great forces oppose each other, the victory will go to the one that knows how to yield.” Libra’s highest vibration is yielding to others. It is bringing into balance and harmony the opposing forces surrounding us and within us. In doing so, we see that all polarities are merely two sides of the same coin. And choosing one over the other only creates perpetual imbalance and the inability to awaken to the oneness we all embody.
How we relate to one another is rooted in Libra for this reason. It is about learning how to reconcile the differences between us all, not just our nearest and dearest. Once you see the differences between yourself and everything around you, find acceptance in your heart that those differences are important. They are teachers teaching us to open up and accept diversity. Ultimately, there is love is everyone’s heart, even the most despicable person you can think of. That love becomes clouded by ignorance and conditioning that many people cannot find their way through. It is a dense fog that persists in their hearts, suppressed by fear and insecurity. Cultivate compassion by understanding this.
Libra season is a beautiful time. Autumn in the North, Spring in the South. The great balancing of light and dark. Open up your heart and mind in order to witness, integrate, and yield. We are all working out so much in our lives. Be easy on yourself and those around you. Be at peace.
Today’s New Moon in Aquarius is widely conjunct the South Node of the Moon in Aquarius, which means it is partially in alignment with Earth and Sun, which means a partial Solar Eclipse. That’s right, it’s eclipse season, which means openings, or portals, into change and growth are upon us. New Moons are harbingers of new beginnings, new intentions being set, recognition that changes to our lives need to be made. Where is this happening for you?
There are electric, high-consciousness charges beaming in and stirring up our cauldron with inspirational ideas and visions of a better future. A better future for ourselves and our community. How would you like to improve the circle of like-minded friends and community members you relate to and appreciate in your life? What organizations would you like to help? Can you afford to donate your services, ideas, or finances to a good cause to better society or your local community?
With so much darkness around us, it is high time the deep blue rays of divine vision pouring forth from the vessel of Aquarius flow through us like a raging stream of sustained awakening. This New Moon eclipses Sun and begs we look back into our roots, our seeds, our previous beginnings to witness what has previously enlightened us in our past. Do we need to humble ourselves before the Great Mystery? Are our ideals for show or are they for progress? Will our legacy be valued by our children’s children? How many generations are your actions and accomplishments affecting?
Nurture inclusion toward progress within your tribe. It has been unlocked. Go forth through the portal of Electric Truth and lead those who seek direction, follow those who honor the sacred Mysteries, and recognize all the beauty of the petals on the flowers growing in the garden of your mind.
Mercury is swimming just beside Sun and Moon today, so be sure that whatever intentions you set forth, you do so in writing or in spoken word. It is good to at least perform this ritual in the mind, but there is immense power in our words. Communicate to your people, your loved ones, your friends. Listen to those who communicate to you. Honor your higher self and involve it deeply in your community. Our tribes and paradigm need to work together locally and share both hearts and minds with one another in order to find social freedom.
