Mercury Retrograde From the 27th of September to the 18th of October
Typically a time for “retrospection” and reflection. Famously a time for interruptions to electrical equipment, travel plans and communication line… Mercury retrograde in Libra also blesses us with reminders of the importance of retreat, time out and looking back in order to extract the lessons from life.
Doing so will be able to bring beautiful balance and insight. On the other hand we face interrupted electrical energies and obstruction to flow to serve as a gentle encouragement to “slow down”.
This is said to be a great time to tie loose ends, mend and declutter the old and overgrown. Libra is the sign of justice, relationship, partnership and contracts. This will be a time in which you learn from the past wherever you faced imbalance in these areas.
Now may be the time to heal old wounds in this area also. It’s a time in which we can experience great learning around the power of communication in relationships, justice and matters of law.
6th of October the New Moon in Libra. 22:05pm
This new moon in Libra occurs in the 5th house within a Stellium (cluster of heavenly bodies). This includes Mars and Mercury. It begins with Taurus as the Ascendant.
It’s time to “balance” ourselves! This is time to CREATE that which re-aligns us and brings us back into “tune” and balance with our highest potential!
Time to focus and fuck the distractions off! Turn off the idiot box if you still watch that shit! It’s poison! Even my 3 year old calls the news poison! Goodness! It’s time to get a grip.
Balance means connected in body and mind. Do some Yoga and find your inner poise and strength. Essentially, you need to be both strong AND flexible like bamboo… for those who do not bend – break! It’s pretty simple!
The time is NOW for change!
The new moon (conjunct the sun) is in alignment (sextile) with Neptune in Pisces (10th house) & Uranus in Taurus (12th house).
This indicates a time to make Spiritual and Radical habitual shifts! This new moon should shake things up. We will be shaken! Just as our earth recently was… there’s no denying we are in an insane period in history right now! And it calls for our highest insight, free will, authenticity and humanitarian selves to awaken rapidly!
It also aligns with Saturn in Aquarius (9th house) in a ‘trine’.
Aligned with Saturn, this New Moon in Libra calls for us to meditate on a better relationship with “authority” and structures. We must now remember that more than ever, like children… nobody, including authorities, will listen to us unless we first offer them empathy and speak to their “hearts”.
We will be met with the same energy and vibration that we put forth! So… with the Moon trine Saturn on this new moon, we need to appeal to the softer side of the outer structures of the world, including the political systems and figures that are supposedly “leading” us.
Time to get smart and use our energy wisely in this regard when meeting with governments and systems that we seek to create change within. We need to “align” ourselves with those we wish to empower to help bring the right change about for the sake of humanity.
Jupiter lies on the midheaven during this New Moon in Libra, which gives a sense of optimism so many have expressed the need for in recent times.
Jupiter on the Midheaven brings a promise of something great from this New Moon. Being in Aquarius… this foretells a time in which we can create beautiful human connections and communities. This is the time to impact change in the area of forming “new and more authentic/ truth aligned” communities.
Let’s face it… the world is awakening and the old ways are crumbling. We need now to walk away from that with is not in line with our highest authentic truth. It’s simply time to grow beyond the limitations of outmoded social systems.
