Astro-Notes on October 4, 2013 – Libra New Moon

The Sun in Libra casts a semi-square to Venus in Scorpio, her dispositor and ruler over the Libra New Moon, which will transpire tonight at 8:34 pm EDT, urging us to assess our path and purpose in all its complexity in order to be able to juggle increasingly complicated and evolving conditions that could throw us off our balance. Saturn in Scorpio’s final quincunx to retrograde Uranus in Aries indicates a structural/structuring adjustment toward a reforming future, which introduces new trends into our lives and therefore requires that we reclaim control over areas of our life we have neglected lately or put on the backburner (especially with the Sun coming out of the intricate aspect configuration involving Vesta in Virgo, Chiron Rx in Pisces, Uranus Rx in Aries and Pluto in Capricorn) as we’re receiving fresh inspiration and set our intentions for this new cycle. It’s time to look forward. A new dawn is already on the horizon, calling for determined individual and collective action in order to instigate change and progress.

The Sabian Symbol for the New Moon at 11:56 Libra states:
“Miners are surfacing from a deep coal mine. Keynote: The need to carry on at ever deeper levels the quest for knowledge, which keeps burning the fires of the collective mind of a society – EXTRACTION.”

(Dane Rudhyar, “An Astrological Mandala: The Cycle of Transformations and its 360 Symbolic Phases”, Pages 179-180)

Suggested by this symbolical image is an emergence from a dark period into the light of the day.
