Rebalancing New Moon in Libra Oct. 8/9

Libra ♎New Moon perfects @ 8:46 pm PDT/ 11:46 pm EDT/October 9 @ 3:46 am GMT

Libra means “the weighing scales” in Latin. Usually held by the Goddess of Justice Dike or Astrea. 

How synchronous is this to have the very karmic balance of Justice held by the Goddess be such a prime symbol of anger from women {and men} over Judge Kavanaugh’s confirmation to lifelong Supreme Court Judge after Ford’s testimony against him of sexual abuse in College which was not found to be reasonable to prevent his appointment. 

Venus, the planetary ruler of Libra is Retrograde which means that Justice is in a regressive stage. Venus is in the Underworld going through her 7 stages of rebirth for the 40 days from October 5-November 16. It appears that in the U.S. women’s rights appear to be backtracking. Mid term elections are coming November 6th and that is a very important day astrologically. 

Libra is about polarity and things are getting more extremely polarized now than ever.

At the New Moon we get to reset, review, renew, reflect and regroup as we sit in the darkness of what for many has ignited Scorpio known characteristics like revenge, obsession, control, power and manipulation issues. The Republicans see Ford’s testimony as a character assassination and attempt to stop a conservative Judge from sitting on the Supreme Court.  

Chiron Retrograde at 29 degrees Pisces is also contributing to the overall universal unconscious emotional wounding/healing we are all feeling at this last most karmic last degree of the zodiac.

Chiron is square Saturn in Capricorn the old Patriarchal boys club. Never underestimate Saturn’s power in Capricorn and Pluto’s too. He rules Capricorn and tradition and all of the white male privilege of history. Thus the wounds women are feeling. This is ancient ancient wounds coming up to be healed and released. Pisces is the sign of Jesus the male sacrificial God of ancient history who was the Goddesses son and lover who was killed annually to ensure the fertility of the earth. That myth was appropriated by the Patriarchy too. This does not mean that men should be made sacrificial victims, castrated or murdered either. These are all metaphors and not to be taken literally. 

Venus retrograde at 10 degrees Scorpio rules the roost at this New Moon. This 40 days and nights in the Underworld will be the resurrection of the Feminine. Sexuality, secrets, ruthlessness and power and control issues will be brought to light eventually. Surrender to the night sea journey. Cry as much as you need. I have been doing so as I have felt the sting of Venus retrograde, feeling my love is being rejected by a close family member. 

Uranus at 1 degree Taurus is opposite Mercury at 28 Libra squaring the Nodes of Fate 

A new wave, invention or practical idea must be built. Uranus rules inventions, freedom and revolution. A new idea or political movement is forming. New ways to express and communicating different from the past. South Node at 2 degrees AQUARIUS indicates a total break from the past ways of organizing. Of course, the internet will be a huge means of building this. Uranus in Taurus rules Money and women always have the power to buy or not which holds incredible power in their hands.

MARS conjunct LILITH in Aquarius square VENUS Retro in Scorpio

An angry mob of women the likes of which the world has never seen is swelling, organizing agitating and will be felt like a tsunami on election day November 6th in the U.S. The patriarchal conservativism of Trump, the election of a new conservative president in Brazil and in Hungary, the new premier of Ontario Ford are all a backlash to liberal views which have been imposed by the Deep State in Europe and in the U.S. with the intent of destabilizing cultures and nations so imposition of world rule and police states can be implemented. This has been going on since the end of world war I, Unfortunately, the conservative backlash is also mixed in with sexual and religious politics. The world needs some balance. Libra is an air sign of detachment so its best to stay as cool and detached as possible.

SUN and MOON at the 15th most powerful degree conjunct CERES the Great Mother.

Yes, we need Ceres to bring balance. The Great Mother can also be destructive as in the Myth of Persephone where she refused to let anything grow and the people were starving until the Gods stepped in to help. Venus Retrograde is part of the Ceres/Demeter story, the abduction, sexual abuse and rape of an innocent maiden into the Underworld is also a metaphor.  We can see these symbols being reenacted. 

Fairy tales and myths are archetypal teaching stories. Ultimately it is the story of a maiden being separated from an overprotective mother and becoming a mature sexual woman after being initiated into sexuality which is the great motivator of all humans, it is secret and hidden until she is old enough, the myth was initially a puberty myth and was then made patriarchal. It is also a myth explain why there is summer and winter. We need to know how to decode these stories which are explaining many deep facets of human life. We need to call upon the Great Mother to heal our broken hearts over this state of women’s truth and her domination by the patriacrhy which will be healed now.

Here is an eye popping synchronicity from John Sandbach 

Speaking the Right Words (Yud Yud Zayin)

Angel: YEIAZEL (YAY-ah-ZEL) Divine Consolation and Comfort

Libra 16. After many revisions, a poem is thrown away. (Omega Symbol) Manifesting/Experimental

(Degree Angel: Imamiah (ee-MA-mee-Yah) Passion, Expiation of Errors)

All seeming failures are experiments that provide a basis for future success. This degree is intent on communicating its deepest feelings, and willing to come at this from many different angles. What is of greatest importance here is ones attitude: non-attachment will protect against frustration, and if patience is maintained, much can be learned from all attempts to express oneself. The result will be empowered communication.

The Chandra Symbol for this degree is “A woman: The lower half of her body is a serpent.” This degree is focused on allowing its deep instinctive impulses to manifest. It craves to live life with the whole of itself, rather than denying the primitive aspects of its being. It feels a deep connection to nature, and knows that the forces of nature working through it must be given expression, for they are bound to express themselves eventually – all efforts to repress them being ultimately doomed to failure.

And, as the image of the Omega Symbol shows, this expression is not always easy. The poet of this symbol must sometimes acknowledge that a particular experiment has failed, and rather than settling for producing something that is deficient in life energy, it is often best to give up and make a fresh start, in the hopes that through this the magic will come forth, and the inner serpent wisdom will find its way into the world through the conduit of words.

Pleiadian Symbol: At the shore a flight of stairs disappearing into the water.

Azoth Symbol: Wind Gods directing a cloud dance. 

Seed degree:Libra 7. The Great Wall of China making a huge shadow. (Omega Symbol) The limitations we have set up for ourselves become a basis for letting go of those creative experiments which we decide to be unsuccessful.

A group of old ladies gossiping excitedly. (Chandra Symbol). Mutual stimulation through communication sensitizes us to an awareness of our primal nature.

Fulfillment degree: Cancer 17. A man’s shadow moving independently of him. (Omega Symbol). Whatever in life we reject always comes back to us in another form so that we may integrate its energy into our being.

A woman working busily at a spinning wheel. (Chandra Symbol). Attuning ourselves to our primal nature provides us with energy that can fuel creative endeavors.”

The spinning wheel is the wheel of fortune and fate used by Spider-Woman  who weaves fate.
