with a new moon solar eclipse, any intentions set are supercharged. they span 6 months time. today’s event is occurring in the sign of libra.
like all signs, libra has productive & unproductive manifestations. at its best, libra can bring a balanced view to the equation, offering an emphasis on diplomacy & balance.
at it’s worst, libra can pretend to be concerned with what’s best for everyone when its actually focused on what will serve upholding its ideals. it is willing to get aggressive – passively or obviously – to make things align with its view of what is fair or just.
the more negative connotations of the sign are important to consider right now as Pluto, an archetypal force controlled by no human, presses on this super charged new moon, forcing us to transform the way we attempt to control areas of life that are not for us to attempt to control.
when Plutonian energies want you to let go of something and you don’t, they press harder, and force things to happen. this could be where the black swan event label associated with eclipses comes from.
perhaps a black swan was just an event we didn’t see coming because we were not conscious of the actions leading up to said event. there was no emphasis on awareness. or else something was hidden deep in the unconscious (or within oligarch systems that proclaim to be about justice, when they are more committed to their own agenda).
“i can’t believe this has happened.” maybe. but if we had developed a balanced perspective of events leading up to it – an objective awareness of the choices we made, without clinging to an idealized view – the black swan might’ve been a grey swan. IE we might have seen it comin’.
the putrid feeling of shame impacts our capacity to see our choices and actions the way they really are. it’s very hard for us to witness the potentialities of our desire to dominate and control other humans – and ourselves. we refuse the needs we have, that others have, and attempt to contort and distort the messages alive in these needs.
we want to control another person so that we feel better about…something.
maybe we need a homeopathic medicine; maybe we need to de-worm ourselves. but maybe we also need to be with the suffering, to understand the inner task assigned to the experience.
maybe we need to not be in denial of something that’s been in the shadows our entire lives – something incredibly destructive that lives within us, and manifests as the big bad wolf we claim is out to get us.
are we creating the inner groundwork for worms, by not tilling our inner soil of the weeds? or is it so intolerable to consider that there are weeds within – that there is something so inharmonious living inside of us that its literally feeding an ugly & unjust external experience?
South node is about letting go – it’s the release valve. it’s where the excrement comes out. and you use the results of the natural process of defecation to fertilize the next step – the new life that is born of the ending…of something.
the north node is the head of the dragon, where the fire comes out. it breathes life force onto whatever it touches. it heats it up – energizes it.
When the nodal axis – the south and north node polarity – are activated during a new moon, we get a new moon solar eclipse.
the sun and moon are together – they are conjunct. and this represents the unconscious (the moon) and consciousness (the sun) meeting up to communicate a message.
and we can infuse their meet up with an intention, if we want to work with the power of the celestial bodies to co-create the next 6 months of our lives.
since libra is about the way we relate, what we idealize, and the way we seek harmony and balance
and pluto is about control and domination
we can consider setting an intention to let go of control in the area of life Libra represents in our charts
over the next 6 months, we can support the need for harmony in the world by cultivating harmony in a specific area of life
but most of all, within. because what lives in you shows up outside of you.
this will require us to bring to the light of awareness the destructive connotations of libran qualities, including:
- refusing to make a choice in order to control others/a situation
- indecision for the sake of domination & control over a situation/another
- insincerity – being fake to keep the peace
- being argumentative for the sake of balance
- trying to force (enforce) cooperation or fairness
- refusing to allow the natural occurrence of imbalance
- not accepting an unfair situation – fighting with its right to exist
- doing everything you can to avoid upset/disharmony, including not honouring individual needs or choice
in order to set an intention to create harmony, we must be informed of what is out of harmony.
the house where libra sits in your chart suggests where to focus on co-creating harmony & fairness (a more balanced perspective) over the next 6 months by becoming aware of and letting go of the need to control.
here is a quick run down of the houses & the areas of life they represent:
1st house – physical appearance, the quality of your defensiveness, how others see you (the shadow lives here)
2nd – resources, spending habits, money, possessions, self-esteem
3rd – what you were taught, the way you think, facts, communication, siblings
4th – home (adult & childhood), family traditions, the home within yourself (often many unconscious elements working here)
5th – having fun, children, speculative investments (to live fully is to risk!) creativity
6th – work environment, day to day habits, health, being of service, pets
7th – projection onto others, relationships, what you seek from others
8th – power dynamics of relationships, subterranean messages, partners resources & values, transformation, what you’ve inherited from ancestors
9th – foreign influences, higher education, where, who & what you worship, how you search for truth & meaning
10th – profession, career, goals, ambitions, status, parents
11th – friendships, like-minded groups, social causes & reform, shared goals
12th – the unconscious, unfinished business, institutions, where & how you escape/retreat, the way you undo yourself/surrender
10:54:04 AM – new moon solar eclipse in libra
Remember to wait until after the new moon has occurred to set an intention.
Any intentions set are supercharged. they span 6 months time.
