Turn On Your Love Light: 2014 Libra New Moon

September 23-24, 2014
11:13 PDT / 2:13 AM EDT / 6:13 AM GMT
1 Libra 7

This year’s Libra New Moon will shine on throughout the entire fall. Arriving a day after the autumnal equinox, it colors the season with new phases and horizons in relationships.

Most of the year has led the way to what is coming. Ground rules and specific connections have received quite the workover since the winter holidays.  Mars, god of aggression and ruler of our drive, spent the first seven months of the year marching through Venus’ domain and arguing with the cosmic change agents, Uranus and Pluto.  The dust-ups (think back to March and April in particular) put the issue of how we can and want to live together smack in the middle of the fundamental restructuring that everyone and everything has been undergoing since 2012.

Our approaches and attitudes are vastly different as a result, and so is the cast of characters in our lives.  Awareness of that has deepened in just the last few days, as Pluto, bringer of unavoidable change, stations direct and sends an unmistakable signal to our very cells. The time has come to put all the changes we have been considering, scheming and negotiating on the table, and implement them.  With this New Moon, we are walking through a collective doorway into a new relationship mode.

The chart for the New Moon hints at some of the characteristics of that mode. Change in the status quo and a refocusing of priorities are built into the equation, as shown by the Moon’s wide square, or demand for action, to Pluto.  Relationships that take off now will reflect and support the participants’ real identities, instead of presenting qualities that you think (or society says) the other person will want. Existing connections will become more real as well, or shrivel into irrelevance.

More real means more workable, for all involved. The Moon’s ruler, Venus, goddess of love, money, creativity and everything else we value, is inviting us to improve all our dealings, new and old, with healthier boundaries. She’s also stirring the urge to merge with a vengeance, nurturing both equality and physicality between partners. An upgrade in — or at least more awareness of — the role of the feminine is in the mix. That also entails adjustments in father/daughter relationships (on the individual level) and the patriarchy’s stance toward girls and women (on the collective).

We’re setting out on the path now. If you don’t feel how new and different it is, you will, and soon. October is bringing high drama, fiery passions, monumental revelations and chapter closings. Cosmic forces will be hitting the reset button and propelling us into ever deeper experiences of trust and intimacy.  Fasten your seat belts. We’re in for the ride of our lives.

Forecast for September 2014

September’s theme is transition. We’re changing modes of communicating, relating and using our drive. It’s as if the lights and set are shifting on a stage, little by little, as we move from summer and gear up for the excitement of the fall.

Talk, thought and travel will go through three distinct beats as their ruler cycles from Virgo to Libra to Scorpio. The first switch takes us from analytical thinking and attention to detail to graceful language, negotiation and efforts to connect , which dominate the month (from the 2nd through the 26th).  Niceties go out the window from the 27th on. Talk becomes intense, targeted, concealing or penetrating secrets and, occasionally, fiercely honest.

Meanwhile social interactions drop glitz, drama and glamour and put on sensible shoes. Venus, goddess of love, money and creativity, takes on the earth goddess mode of Venus from the 5th through the 28th. For most of the month, how we think and communicate, and how that translates into our relationships, are intrinsically connected, more so than usual. Venus and Mercury spend that time with each in the other’s house, a special relationship known as mutual reception. Neither can act independently of the other just now. Whatever happens to one resonates with or colors the other.

This linkage inclines us to cast an analytical eye on our connections, money and selves. It encourages communicating what we see and want diplomatically, graciously and maybe just a bit manipulatively (to get the best possible, if not desired, reaction). This bodes well for addressing relationship issues, thorny or otherwise, with ration and ease. We’ll see room for improvement everywhere we look. Be sure to cast that eye on yourself.

Pay attention to boundaries, too. Redrawing or protecting them will be epidemic issues when the Pisces Full Moon meets with Chiron on the 8th. Stabilizing Saturn is trining them both, facilitating a new, lasting and healthier relationship with the rest of creation  — or weighting the sensitives among us down to the point of immobilizing them. Boundaries.  Boundaries. (Listen to my free talk Navigating the Shift for tools to help you wring out.)

The 10th through the 21st is a gauntlet of twinkling relationship developments. Mundane versus spiritual love (or is somebody foolin’?) morphs into an irresistible force by the 14th (triangulation alert!), puts us to a choice, like it or not (see previous parenthetical!), and then deposits us on firm ground…which may be surrounded by clouds.

Confusing? Tantalizing? Probably. But we’re game, all of us. Mars, the ruler of our drive, heads on the 13th into Sagittarius, which increases energy, optimism and the desire to run off into adventure. He’s stoking our engines for the next round of change, scheduled to erupt in October.

The first day of fall, September 22, is also part of the set-up.  Pluto, agent of unavoidable change, stations direct on the equinox and fills the days on either side of it with the unmistakable sense that monumental forces are in play.  The time is coming, soon, for the new phase in relating — and for the payoff from all the negotiating and rearranging we did from December through July.

The Libra New Moon on the 24th sets the ball in motion, and it’s anybody’s guess where it’s coming from, or where it’s heading, or how it will land. Good-time Jupiter is sharing flame accelerant with unpredictable cosmic change agent Uranus. The excitement they ignite will propel us out of the month and into the next.

As we fly out, Mercury shifts into Scorpio — heightening intrigue and instilling us with X-Ray vision — while Venus enters the relationship sign of Libra, her second home.  Relationship cards are on the table. Show your hand. Ask for what you want. Accept it.

Decisions, Decisions: Forecast for the 2014 Virgo New Moon

August 25, 2014
7:12 AM PDT / 10:12 AM EDT / 2:12 PM PDT
2 Virgo 18

This year’s Virgo New Moon forecast has so many possible titles:  The Day of the Terminator. Lines in the Sand. The Cosmic Alarm Clock. Stop It!

However you label it, this year’s Virgo New Moon means business. It has a back-to-school, back-to-work vibe on steroids, knocking cobwebs from our thinking, waking us from summer doldrums and marshaling fierce, decisive action.

Summer will technically still be with us for another three weeks, but we’ll all be packing up our beach toys and heading for the next, more serious phase. Or finding ourselves suddenly in a vastly different environment, as if unseen hands had changed the set while we blinked.

Some of the action might sting, or stun. This Moon is applying a scalpel to all manner of situations — some long festering, some bottle-necked, some deep, dark and dank, and all ripe to be aired, transmuted, and potentially healed. There’s no room for equivocating, ambivalence, hedging bets or postponing. The Terminator is paying each of us a visit, and resistance is futile, as many a science fiction character says. In many cases he’s doing us a favor.

Everything has ramifications and consequences for the long haul, particularly in our thinking and relationships. We will care, deeply, and that caring is both the launchpad and target. This Moon may be in an intellectual sign, but hearts, passions and values are driving and bearing the brunt of the action. Attitudes will crystalize and spur monumental decisions and actions. You may suddenly see a person or situation in a light that moves them closer or further away. Clues will have been there all along; your perception is what’s new.

The Moon’s ferocity comes from the teamwork of its ruler, Mercury, lord of our information and transportation flow, warrior god Mars and Saturn, ruler of time, order and obligations. The second pair are the real source, close as they can be in the sign of Scorpio. Their fusing is the Terminator, precipitating aggression, strikes, endings, and other acts of commitment, with no going back. This could be positive, remember. It is the outgrowth of the first seven months of the year, the moment of implementing permanent changes that have been under consideration and in progress since Mars bivouacked in the relationship sign of Libra.

Libra’s ruler, the goddess of love, is pushing for action, too. Venus, overseer of all we hold dear, is in a tight, no-nonsense angle to Mars and Saturn that says:  It’s time. Get moving. Give me what I want and get rid of what I don’t.  Her shoves, and their responses, will not be subtle or boring. Pitch   feminine and masculine archetypes in high-drama, attention-demanding Leo against magnetic, primal Scorpio and passions will send off steam, erupt or boil over. (Note to relationship fence-sitters:  good luck staying put!)

Only situations with substance and staying power can survive and flourish now. The trivial, the decaying, the outmoded are all being uprooted and cast aside. Mercury’s position, in an exact sextile to the pair, presents opportunities for decluttering thinking and data streams. (Faltering technology doesn’t have a chance; be prepared to visit tech support or go shopping.) Violence, force and, alas, deaths, will turn minds around and spur people to decisions and action.

Some of that may be anything but rational.  Neptune’s cosmic fog machine is billowing away, with the Moon moving directly opposite it. That will cloud some thinking, spread some illusions or expose some delusions while Mercury is opening the door to demons, paranoia, terrors and the impulse to act on them. (“This is for your own good,” will be a common phrase. So will, “This hurts me more than it hurts you.”)

Cling fast to the higher potentials. They are plentiful, as dark as the news has been lately.  There’s a benefit to all the metaphoric snakes coming out from under rocks. Now that they are visible, we can — and have to — deal with them.

In your own life, notice what is surfacing from your subconscious and cellular programming. Feel it, then tackle it. Take action to change the role it plays:  Drop blaming other people and also yourself. Admit the often tiny ways in which you belittle and devalue yourself. Decide to honor yourself. Choose different language to tell your story.

You can achieve all this without years of therapy. That’s the marvel of this New Moon. Change can come in an instant. Truly. Cosmic quick-change artist Uranus is collaborating with Venus to spring us from stasis and limitation.  Add that to the pressure she’s putting on Mars and Saturn, and movement is inevitable.

It may make startle or shock you. It may make you wince or cry. It will make you see your heart’s investments in a new light. If you are not receiving appreciation and return, guess what? You’ve been given carte blanche to walk away guilt-free. Guess what else? The external playing out is reflecting your own internal process. Your heart is insisting on change. The most important place for that, for you, is in your mind.

This Virgo New Moon is a living phrase book of adages. They’re overused, but everso apt:  Change is an inside job. It’s all in your mind. Change your thinking; change your life.  Advice you’ve been hearing for years. It feels right now, though, doesn’t it? Yep. Make it so.

And if you find your mind wandering to worry or unsupportive thinking, help yourself to this reminder:
