“Trees that are slow to grow bear the best fruit.” Moliere
Today, sitting on the sidelines and patiently waiting things out, may be our wisest or most prudent course of action now, especially if we’re getting clear indications that what we’re wanting or trying to push through is obviously not going to fly without tying up way too much (Saturn) of our precious energetic currency (Mars) or other resources. Metaphorically, Mars square Saturn (at 10:31 am) is often akin to feeling like we’re fighting an uphill battle, which we most likely are. Guess we just have to decide for ourselves, Do we really want to go there now, and if so, why?
Of course, sometimes, too, with Mars-Saturn, we’re internally feeling much more pressured to act swiftly now, for one reason or the other. Kind of like sensing that we’re running out of (Saturn-ruled) time. Mars-Saturn aspects are also often associated with a more concentrated effort or push. Since this Mars-Saturn is also a waning square, if we do act on something important to us now, it’s likely to finish off something that we earlier started or attempted. It could be that we’re also feeling more of a sense of responsibility to act now, even though we know that it may still cost us, in the end, and we may not necessarily get the result that we want.
Plus, we’re still also dealing with the waning Balsamic Moon today in “can’t we all just get along” Libra. Normally a period when we need to just let go, or possibly regroup and move on.
Later, Luna will shift into rejuvenating Scorpio (at 4:29 pm), with the New Moon occurring shortly before midnight (at 11:38 pm). New Moons generally give us a green light to wipe the slate clean and start all over again. Today’s lunation will also form an exact opposition to erratic, yet often innovative Uranus – possibly a tad intimidating. While this New Moon may be disruptive in some regards, in that it could present situations or circumstances that we weren’t expecting or were prepared for, it can also hopefully help to further us along in ways that ultimately prove to be freeing or liberating. We may also have to first work through, however, some initial feelings of inner discontent or unrest, as part of the whole process.
With reforming Uranus in stewardship Taurus, it could be that we’re also incorporating a new perspective or take on what it is that we truly value now and need in our life in order to feel more safe and secure in our little neck of the woods on Mother Earth. We may discover, too, that it is something that we didn’t originally envision as really needing. This might also be because we never even perceived it as a plausible option for ourselves, until now. (Kind of like that proverbial light bulb has suddenly gone off in our head giving us more options.)
Meanwhile, the revitalizing Scorpio New Moon is also a chance for us to empty ourselves of outworn behaviors or practices that have been perhaps keeping us stuck or immobilized in our sneakers. Issues of shared intimacy with others and getting out of debt may also be two key areas that are particularly highlighted during the coming month.
“Intimacy is not purely physical. It’s the act of connecting with someone so deeply, you feel like you can see into their soul.” Reshall Varsos
Questions for Today: What in your life is worth fighting for? What things are totally non-negotiable for you? What do you always need around you as a safety net?

On This Day in History: On October 27, 1954, Walt Disney’s 1st TV show “Disneyland” premieres on ABC. The theme song for the show was “When You Wish Upon a Star.”
In the sky that day, pioneering Mars was in technology-related Aquarius (the sign of broadcasting) and exactly square to the life-giving Sun in transforming Scorpio.

Happy New Moon Blessings to you!
