“Sometimes people are beautiful. Not in looks. Not in what they say. Just in what they are.” Markus Zusak
A replenishing New Moon in pleasing Libra is occurring this morning (8:02 am EST), at 22 degrees of the sign, ideally setting the stage for a positive renewal of our spirit and emotions over the next few days. With a New Moon, we traditionally initiate new matters and, at the Full Moon, we start reaping the consequences of whatever it is that we have sown.
With this lunation occurring in diplomatic, sociable Libra we perhaps have greater opportunity to smooth out some of the rough patches in our life with a bit more finesse. It seems that our capacity for compromise, or give and take, is elevated. Our objectivity is also potentially enhanced due to the airy detachment of Libra the scales, the sign of justice and the courts.
The Moon’s wide trine to retrograde Jupiter in Gemini also serves to endow us with a clearer view of the big picture that we have fashioned for ourselves. Moon-Jupiter may also stoke our generosity and benevolence. We tend not to recognize any limits when Luna is serenaded by Jupiter, as our optimism and enthusiasm are on the rise.
Coinciding with this New Moon we also have energizing Mars in Sagittarius trining ingenious Uranus in Aries, suggesting that our brilliance and originality are more freely on display now. Also, our sense of adventure. This is an ideal time for experimentation and for setting aside our normal assumptions about matters. Mars-Uranus helps us to see things in bold new ways. It is an amazing aspect for shifting perspectives, or for brainstorming. Or for learning things of a technical nature. Also, for breakthroughs or firsts in science and technology.
Too, on the eve of this aspect, we had the Space Shuttle Endeavor’s historic arrival at Exposition Park in LA, where it will soon be permanently on display in a museum. Uranus governs aviation and spacecraft.
Also yesterday, Felix Baumgartner broke the “world ascent by balloon” record before space diving out of the Red Bull Stratos helium-filled balloon over Roswell, New Mexico. He became the first person to reach supersonic speed without traveling in a jet or a spacecraft.
Oprah Winfrey and Academy Award winning director, Oliver Stone, were both born with Mars trining Uranus in their birth charts. “I do believe there are leaders who are like lightning (Uranus) and they come along and they lead. The Lincolns of the world, the Alexander the Greats, they do exist. They have existed.” Oliver Stone.
Since the New Moon today also sets up a void of course Moon until the Moon enters passionate Scorpio (at 8:06 pm EST), we may want to wait until the Moon switches signs before actually embarking on any new beginnings. “You raze the old to raise the new.” Justina Chen Headley
