Migrating to a place of peace with October’s New Moon ~

October 14, 2020 ~ It’s the balsamic phase of the moon, when my internal clock best aligns with the cosmos. When, instead of our early morning walk at our nearby mountain lake, my puppy, Rumi, and I go late in the afternoon and arrive just in time to hear the liberating call of migrating Sandhill Cranes that stirs my soul at least twice each year.I look up in time to witness their sky dance of peace and trust and all that is good as they crest a hill of pine trees. Hope swirls in my heart and my spirit lifts skyward with them as they dip, flow and dive – their formations leaving calligraphic imprints of wonder in the atmosphere. I’m transported. Together, our spirits head South, where the energy medicine of childhood, healing and growth reside. Where innocence calls us home to play. Together, we bask in the freedom that comes with faith, and then, without notice but with unbridled joy, we circle back,
as if to say this place is perfect, too.

Rumi and I come home and it’s still light, but barely. I’m placing the body of another winged one that I discovered in our forest after high winds upon a natural altar of quartz under an old fir tree when I hear another wave of cranes. I’m blessed to witness their jubilant recital above me again, as I bid this smaller relative of theirs farewell.

Winged ones hold a sacred place in my heart and in our world. Angels, archangels, birds, butterflies, and pollinators of all kinds call to me often, filling me with awe and appreciation. In this state of grace and receptivity, I know that all is well. I know that there is perfection in each moment, and that the truth abides here and now, always. We’re simply invited to show up.

I align with and follow the dance of planets and celestial bodies in the same way that I align with and follow the winged ones. I’m ever grateful for the moments of synchronicity when the messages I receive from the charts I’m reading find their way into the lives of those seeking celestial wisdom and connection before we meet.

For me, astrology is ultimately a language of validation and possibility, and being attuned to the natural world allows us to bring astrology to life. It centers us, and when we’re centered, we exist at the core of the divine celestial plan that we co-created. Here, we’re surrounded by the energies of all the planets and luminaries in the cosmos, and everything is possible.

It is from this space of expansion and faith that I welcome the gifts of October’s New Moon.  ~ The New Moon that arrives Friday, October 16, 2020 at 1:31 pm MDT at 23 degrees Libra, the Venus-ruled, cardinal, airy sign of equilibrium, harmony, justice and love. Libra represents eventide, when the veil between day and night thins just enough to shift our perceptions.

~ The New Moon that opposes Retrograde Mars in Aries, and ignites our expression of warrior energy to reach out for what we desire. Since Mars is retrograde, we should consider our desires carefully.

~ The New Moon that squares the Saturn, Jupiter and Pluto stellium in Capricorn, and encourages us to continue to acknowledge and release what trips us up as we aim to learn from, expand and transform the structures that limit our growing, evolving consciousness and way of being.

~ The New Moon that arrives just three days after Mercury entered its retrograde journey in Scorpio, the sign of transformation and power, and dares us to pause, listen and trust the truth when it shows itself.

~ The New Moon that implores us to come to the centered space of our hearts. Where the “I AM” energies of Aries and the “WE ARE” energies of Libra co-exist in balanced harmony together. Where all relations are elevated because each of us is at the center of our journey, gracing the unified whole with our presence.

Where my journey is yours and your journey is mine. Where – if we’re present and humble enough – we can be carried skyward with the migrating cranes and merge with the mystery and magic of the cosmos.

As Rumi and I go outside after the twilight sky fades tonight, we hear a third flock of cranes overhead. Their collective song draws me to Jupiter as it emerges in the southern sky and confirms what I know to be true: We are one ~ and blessed beyond measure to dwell together on this sacred Earth, our Mother. Here. Now. Always.

With great love.
Always Love ~

Libra’s New Moon and the Space Between Us ~

I love Libra, and Libra’s New Moon cycle offers some amazing opportunities for reflection. It also holds abundant gifts of appreciation, balance, peace, and harmony through connections with others.

So, let’s center ourselves. Let’s breathe into this moment, this space, when the Moon is in the balsamic phase of darkness just before her new light returns in Libra tomorrow, September 28, 2019, at 12:26 pm MDT. The balsamic phase is where ideas coalesce, so let’s marinate here for a moment.

Continuing to notice our breath, let’s feel our feet on the ground rooting into the Earth – and let’s feel our hearts lifting and connecting to the Cosmos.

When we’re centered within ourselves in this way, between Earth and Above,
we’re in the realm of Aries.

The journey from fiery Aries to airy Libra takes us from our centers into the spaces that exist between us. The New Moon in Venus-ruled Libra reminds us that the quality of the space between us depends on what we bring to it.

New moons in general are ideal times to set intentions, and this one has some amazing aspects that offer much potential for us to manifest them.

One of these aspects is the New Moon’s opposition to the asteroid Chiron in Aries, the wise healer that supports our survival. If we’re willing to step outside of ourselves on the way from Aries to Libra, we can see our reflection in others. If we’re willing to go even deeper, we’ll appreciate our ability to mirror them, as well. Bravely taking this journey with compassion guiding us brings balance and harmony to the ways we live, heal, and express ourselves.

Another potent aspect of this New Moon in Libra is a T-square to Saturn and the South Lunar Node in Capricorn, and the North Nodal Node in Cancer. This connection helps us release lessons and habits from the past that no longer serve our best expression. It also reminds us to adopt a willingness to take responsibility for practicing loving self-care and for fulfilling our needs.

Finally, this New Moon makes an exact inconjunction to Uranus in Taurus. A conjunction is a supportive aspect where energies pair up close to each other, while an inconjunction is the opposite. Inconjunctions require us to notice the disconnection and correct our course, if needed. Uranus in Taurus wants us to really get in touch with our values, and the New Moon’s aspect to it implores us to connect with what really matters so that we can restore balance and harmony to our lives.

The upshot of this New Moon is that it’s time. It’s time to show up and make our intentions matter, because they truly do. Together, we can know and appreciate balance, peace, and harmony – where we all mirror the best of each other. Let’s do this!

With much love and harmony, always,

October’s New Moon in Libra: Be the Eagle ~ Be the Dove

October’s New Moon in Libra brings us to the center point between ourselves and each other. The Moon and Sun in Libra oppose Uranus in Aries exactly, while they square Pluto in Capricorn. We’ll likely feel an urgency to find harmonious balance (Libra) as we express our unique selves (Aries) while reclaiming the personal and collective power that we’ve abdicated to others (Capricorn). The precision with which these themes are playing out in our world now is absolutely heart-rending. Love/Power; Feminine/Masculine; Receptivity/Activation; Peace/War. Even though our world of is one of duality, I am convinced that we can come to the center and honor the best of both/all sides.
I also believe that we are being encouraged and supported to do exactly that.

The Sabian Symbol for October’s New Moon at 26 degrees Libra is an eagle and a large white dove turning constantly into each other.

Eagle medicine is rich with strength, power, and wisdom, while the Dove’s power lies in its affinity for peace, gentleness, and innocence. Can we turn into the best of ourselves and each other?

Can we embody our strength and courage while being awake to the dynamic and transformative power of love and peace?

Can we – will we – value emotional and spiritual realms while walking on this Earth? 

When you infuse any situation or expression with love, it is forever altered. We are being encouraged and supported to alter our human journey now.

The Sabian symbol of an eagle and a large white dove turning constantly into each other calls for an active, dynamic integration of our values with our will, or desires.

What/whom do we love? Are our thoughts, words, and actions aligned with our answer to that question? Will we be the Eagle? Will we be the Dove? When will we embrace the expression of both of them? 

 

~ BE THE EAGLE ~ BE THE DOVE ~ 

Uranus in Aries is visible in the night sky now. Facing East, the direction of New Beginnings, may we invoke the innovation that Aries offers for the survival of all species, our world, our Universe.

The Orionid meteor showers are also at their height ~ go outside to a night sky near you and send gratitude to the ever-abundant and loving galaxy that lifts us out of isolation and into realms of connection and possibility. 

Most importantly, give love ~ give love to yourself, give love to your fellow humans, give love to all sentient beings ~ in our world and beyond.
Because the power of love, and its range, is truly infinite… 

Love and Blessings to all, always,

Christina
