Moon opposite Chiron

New Moon in Libra: Healing karmic lessons from the past.

Once every month or so, we are given an opportunity to be reborn into a new zodiacal archetype when the Sun and Moon unite at the New Moon.  Each sign unfolds into the next as we move through the twelve archetypes of human existence, and we are given another opportunity to wipe the slate clean and begin anew, to create intention and to begin a cycle of growth.

This month the wheel has spun us into the Libra New Moon, which is also a Supermoon (™ Richard Nolle).  A Supermoon is at its closest point to Earth, and its energies are felt more intensely by us humans!  Supermoons are more visible when they are full as they appear large and glorious in the sky, but the Super New Moons are just as powerful.

Following the entry of the Sun into Libra at the Equinox, the Moon joins not only the Sun but also Mercury and Venus already in Libra.  As we move from Virgo into Libra, we transition from the critical thinking of Virgo into a more tactical and tactful way of looking at the world (Libra).  Libra is represented by the scales of balance that requires an equal and opposite reaction to every action.  The act of bringing disharmonious energies into harmony is the lesson of Libra.

Libra is ruled by the planet Venus – the planet of love, beauty and attraction.  With Venus in ascendance, matters of relationships and anything which brings aesthetic harmony into our lives will be highlighted.  But this New Moon is challenged by an opposition from Chiron, the planet of healing and wounding.  Under the influence of Chiron, the faultline that runs through our efforts […]

The Supermoon Virgo eclipse is a bounty of challenge, and inspiration

The eclipse on September 13th brings a crescendo of planetary energy to propel us out of our stale routines, helping us to access our creativity and inspiration.  The Moon is new in Virgo, with the Sun and Moon aligned in that sign to bring a sharp focus to matters of the practical and mundane details of our lives.  Health, hygiene and effective life patterns are governed by Virgo.

Mercury is the ruler of Virgo, so Mercury is the ruler of this eclipse. The organization of information so that we can use it more effectively is an important part of this eclipse activation.  The higher mind, with its intuition and wisdom, is unable to operate when the lower mind is bogged down with details that it cannot process.  At this New Moon eclipse we have an opportunity to clear the lower mind and organize our thoughts.

The eclipse is also a Supermoon (coined by astrologer Richard Nolle), and at its closest point to the Earth.  Where a Full Moon Supermoon is big and buoyant in the sky, the New Moon Supermoon is activated on the subconscious level.  You may find yourself with heightened emotional awareness as well as reactivity under this influence, particularly if you are sensitive to lunar energies.

Both the Sun and Moon are opposite Chiron in the New Moon Chart.  Chiron is the planet that assists in the process of clearing old psycho-emotional wounds that lurk in the mind, body and spirit and create dis-ease.   This Chironic influence suggests that hidden within these mundane details lies the key to healing the soul and any dysfunction that remains active in our lives.

The lunar energy is further intensified by a harmonious trine from Mars […]
