“Libra New Moon at 25 degrees – October 17th – 18th – Cause and Effect”


Balance, harmony, justice and partnership characterizes this New Moon at 25 degrees Libra on October 17th at 10:34 p.m. Pacific Daylight Time.  I have always found this time of the month as a wonderful period to renew, rethink, and reaffirm the path and the direction we are aiming for in this life.  Every new moon, we start with a new glass to fill with our dreams and it is like a mental exercise, the more you do it, the more it will work for you and the more successful you become.  I have noticed we usually fail in accomplishing our dreams when our vision of our goals become muddy and are no longer clear to us.  By using this period to renew our visions and goals, the final success is closer then we think.  In Libra we seek to recognize, tolerate and to work with the opposites and we begin to have compassion with those of opposing views.  We become like the archetype of this sign the scale of justice, equality and truth, where we must ponder all sides of the situation and come to a decision which is right for all.

With the New Moon about to square the North and South Lunar Nodes in Capricorn and Cancer, and with Saturn about to move in to the sign of Libra squaring Pluto in Capricorn, the need to use careful judgment and not to jump to conclusions to any situation or problem, is very important at this time.  The Saturn and Uranus opposition has shown us that we must not trust on so called experts on decisions we want to rely on.  We need to be the directors and the movers of our own lives if we are to move on to better things.  We have been shown that those we have trusted to lead us, have led us a stray.  Instead of pointing the blame or feeling guilty, we need to pick ourselves up and make a determined effort to look at all sides of a situation before making a decision.

Pluto is telling us, we can no longer follow blindly, but need to have our confidence and dignity reborn and renewed.  With the twenty first century, Pluto is revealing to us that we can not go it alone and that we need to be responsible for our decisions.  That being ignorant of the facts does not excuse us from the blame or the effect of our decisions we have made or have allowed to continue.  There is a revolution going on in our consciousness to lay back and go with the current of the river, or to make an effort to fight and go up stream where the pot of gold lay hidden.  We have been laying back listening to others in advising us for so long that it will take an effort on our part to regain control of our own decision making.  The revolt is at hand and Pluto, Saturn and Uranus are standing by to help us or to push us into the mode, whatever choice we make.

The Sabian Symbol for Libra at 25 degrees is Information in the symbol of an autumn leaf.  The keyword is Tact.  ‘When positive, the degree is spontaneous adaptability and an unswerving and instinctive fidelity to ultimate goals and meanings, and when negative, fascination with the trivial and delight in unbridled fancy.”  This says it all, that our priorities like the mysteries of life and death, will go through a change and will be reborn to something new in its’ transformation, so be clear and firm of your objectives that they may blossom into your dreams and wishes for the future.  For every cause there is an effect, and our first cause, like every cause should be well thought out.
