20 OCTOBER 2017, LIBRA, Supermoon NO, Eclipse NO
A New Moon in the zodiac sign of the scales, Libra, brings a month of interesting interactions with ‘the other half’. What point are scales if only one side is used and not the other? Two eyes, two arms, two legs! The New Moon’s alignments to Mars and Uranus could bring an impulse to throw something away we might not realise we actually need. If one leg becomes sore do we chop it off? Libra as an air sign is like swords in tarot, where judgements might harm if we fall into black versus white, or heal if clarity joins compassion. When all the shades of grey are considered, including the sensitive nuances, bends and turns of a situation, right through its history, balance brings new openings for greater living.
This New Moon is opposite Uranus, which in its positive throws wild perspectives and inspirational moments that break up stalemates. Imagine two friends about to depart with tight lips and curt words, when suddenly a magnificent butterfly dances between them. Both are entranced, and with the wonder of children allow this soft moment to rekindle a flash of kindness for each other. Stressed hearts move toward the healing power of understanding, Libra’s forte. A New Moon in Libra reminds us that even if the reasons to work through conflict or the uncomfortable don’t make immediate sense, the reasons are there. Libra, the zodiac sign of highest civilisation, networks and interconnections shows us that when we allow both sides, doors open to a kaleidoscope of what’s possible. For life’s new possibilities, how can you turn black or white into a rainbow full of colours?
