New Moon in Libra, September 30/October 1, 2016- Power stalemate or harmony in love?

moon-sun-harmonyUh oh. How do we get past the power struggle that may show up with the New Moon in Libra who very much wants harmony to be present? How do we move through the conflicting energy when Pluto in Capricorn asks to shift something so you finally can move forward and Mars in Capricorn will be pushing for battle? Keep that in mind for a few minutes as I look at some other worldly stuff going on.

 EBS sent out message yesterday which I saw on TV on my way to go to Yankees game. Then it is saying today the train crash in Hoboken was a drill. Absolutely ridiculous! The Hilary email scandal is getting hot and heavy. Keep your eyes open, dear ones, because this is not going away. But then again you may not even care about it. It is only this country that is in peril. Oh well. Just another day in the neighborhood! Seems like the a certain Infantry division of the Marines was called back the other day and North Carolina is on Alert. Who would have guessed that the rioters in Charlotte were bussed in? Wonders never cease in this debacle. And will the election take place. I have listened to and read about so many scenarios that those who have some inner sense or not say that it may not happen. And Russia continues to be in the limelight. Nothing further needs saying now. Wake up to who you are and life will continue on in so many good ways. Follow the crowd and nothing is promised. It is going to get really “hot’ out there soon. Please pay attention.

The New Moon is in Libra (both Sun and Moon are conjunct) on September 30/October 1, 2016 at 8:11 pm EDT, 5:11 pm PDT, and 12:11 am GMT in 8 degrees 15’. The New Moon is always about looking where you have come from and where you are going. Since it is in Libra as I said in the opening that it is about harmonious interaction and balance since Libra is about both.  How do you balance your need for freedom and your wish for connection? Do you choose to control or are you compliant? Are you interested in interacting in a balanced co-creative way, tuned into the other individual? What you put out there is what you will get in return. And remember this is a Black Moon since the month has 2 new moons. Energy is a bit more intense than normal.

Libra is about the opposite side. Who you are and who the other individual is has Libra’s name on it. It is about coming together with everything and integrating the aspects of the selves that are different. If you have disowned parts of yourself then you will attract that to you in stronger measures than you may choose. What I am talking about is the patterns, the beliefs and any disharmony you may have. Yet on the other hand you may also repulse them. That is, of course, up to you.

Old Mars just went into Capricorn on September 27 and will square this New Moon. Mars in Capricorn is more disciplined and helps you go forward but it does not like the New Moon in Libra. It is looking for a fight. Ugh. And will you be the one to start it with your boss or your partner? Mars doesn’t let down. So watch your actions in the next couple of weeks. And also the transformer Pluto in Capricorn at 14 degrees is also squaring the New Moon in Libra. That is saying to you if you are trying to control or manipulate someone or a situation…or the other individual is doing it to you, look out for a major power struggle. If you don’t want a break up wherever it is touching your chart do stop the fighting. It may well be your shadow side which shows up here. Stop it before it creates chaos that is not to your liking.

Jupiter is conjunct the Sun and Moon in Libra. Remember, when Jupiter transits your ascendant you can easily…I mean very easily put on weight. This is especially true if Jupiter is hitting the natal ascendant, Sun, Moon, or Venus. Watch for overeating and sleeping too darn much. And of course, those drinks go down pretty easily right now for the next year. Keep an eye on your intake if you don’t want to see the expansion in your body.

It suggests you look at how you are relating and what is the role you tend to play in your intimate relationships.  Get through some of those obstacles you keep putting up and walk through them as you see the truth. Maybe you can be kinder, more joyful and loving with this New Moon. And don’t forget to forgive too!!! Those already in a relationship can bring more optimistic interactions if you stay positive. Even those who are not in a relationship can intend one coming to you. Think of what you can offer to that relationship.

The New Moon is sextile Saturn in Sagittarius. Watch what you believe since it will have a big influence on your current place in life. A new paradigm can come through especially in your interactions with others. Will you go with it?

Sun was exactly conjunct Jupiter on September 26 and continues to be there as the New Moon takes place. Go within and let the spirit of the real you arise from the depths. Let go of blame. Compassion would be a great thing to show right now in an honest way. Let your horizons broaden at this time.

Even if you aren’t going to be feeling the effects of Jupiter’s transit of Libra in a big way, Jupiter is always benefits you in some way. You will still want to look to the house of your natal chart that Jupiter will be moving over to see where there’s potential for success and where you may be able to take advantage of the good vibes. If you are willing to take a chance in the romance arena in the next 2 weeks until the Full Moon then I suggest no matter what goes on, even if there is a bit of the power thing or otherwise, it will help you grow in a major way and that if good. So go out there and relate. Get out of the house and socialize and have some fun. It will be good for you in the long run.

Under any Pluto transit, we feel pressured to eliminate and release the old, outworn, outdated and obsolete in our lives. When Pluto is transiting retrograde, we are urged to let go of attitudes, thinking or communication patterns, security drives, rigid emotions; a time to undergo an internal form of house cleaning.

The final week of September wraps up with Pluto entering a direct phase, and a Libra New Moon. Both of these influences are a green light go ahead. After many highs and lows, and several months of snags, September ends on a high note. September 26 at 11:01am EDT is when Pluto went direct. It will start to move t things forward in your life. Pluto is in Capricorn which means that something outwardly tangible is coming from this transit. As Pluto is in action running just won’t do. Hopefully you have changed what needed to changed and alter your reactions. There may be other Pluto stuff coming at you but you will be able to move past if you did take the time to purge out the old behaviors and beliefs. Many of you may have faced difficult ordeals in the past 5 months.

 And don’t forget to make your intentions clear. Write them out (10 at most) and look at them in the morning and at night. What are you looking to create in your life? New Moons energize those intentions and you never know what just might show up. If you have a Libra rising sign/ascendant then you need to watch for new opportunities to show up when Jupiter crosses the rising sign into the first house in your chart.

Most intensely affected are birthdays which are Aries, March 26- April 3; Cancer, June 24-July 1; Libra, September 26-October 3 and Capricorn, December 26-January 3.
