The New Moon this month will be exceptionally powerful, given the number of planets involved. It will be exact on 10/4, Friday, at 8:34PM, Eastern Time. New Moons can usually be felt a day before, but in this case I believe we’ll be feeling this one from Tues. on. A New Moon is when the Sun and the Moon are in the same sign. It represents new beginnings, a time to set intentions. This month the Sun is in the Cardinal Air sign Libra, the Moon also in Libra. The Cardinal signs of the Zodiac are Aries, Cancer, Libra, and Capricorn. Cardinal signs are the leaders, the initiators, the motivators. As the Sun and the Moon join up in Libra, the sign of justice, integrity, and Sacred Truth, they will both be in opposition to Uranus in Aries, Cardinal Fire, the radical Liberator. All three of those Planets will be forming a challenging aspect to Pluto in Capricorn, Cardinal Earth. Pluto is the ultimate alchemist, the most Shamanic of all of the Planets. It is about letting go of what has been outgrown. Transmutation.
I can’t emphasize enough how powerful this New Moon is, given the other Planetary energies working with it. Not only do we have the opportunities for new beginnings, but the opportunities to release that which does not serve us. Uranus will insist on radical change. Pluto will insist on radical rebirth. Combine that with the Sun and Moon in Libra, the sign of Justice, and you have a recipe for radical new beginnings for the self, yes, but also for humanity. There is a Zen quote which sums this New Moon up perfectly: ” Let go, or be dragged.” I vote to let go, and steer a course towards your dreams.
