Astrology Article: An Idea that Sparks the Future
The New Moon astrology for this month is centered around a new seed idea entering our conscious field of perception and overall thinking process. This new seed idea will come in the form of a foundational vision or insight. The combined impact of this expanded seed idea has the potential to change and impact the world far into the future.
The overall New Moon pattern supports the importance of the “NOW.” The energies that are combining now are bringing a huge seed of potential that will grow into the future. This potential is way beyond what we would normally experience, bringing together the past and the future into this very moment of New Moon energy.
All roads lead to the opportunities presented at this specific moment in time. The seed of new vision of possibility planted now can not only heal the past, but also become the future we envision.
The experience of the seed idea will be different for everyone. For some it will be an impulse for greater participation, for others it will be a new idea of the kind of world they want to live in. From what I can see it will vary from person to person. What’s important is showing up to your own experience and not allowing the impulse of this New Moon to lie dormant or fade into the past. In order to expand into a better future, this New Moon seed needs to be nurtured with spiritual energy.
Before we explore more about this concept of a seed growing into a better future (the new seed idea), I would like to explore the New Moon energies of Libra which are focused on achieving a greater level of participation in the world.
Libra is an air sign that functions well with the intellect. Three primary qualities of Libra’s intelligence are observation, connection, and learning how to participate as an equal in the world. These qualities are necessary skills in order for us to participate in something larger, whether it be social, career, or any intentional forms of planetary work to help make the world a better place.
The balancing energies often associated with Libra are a necessary part of new relationships. They support your ability to thoughtfully step into something larger. As you move out of your personal comfort zone into a larger field of context, staying grounded and centered is of great importance. Maintaining a sense of who you are is necessary to prevent an imbalance from causing any setbacks. This is especially true as the bigger picture of the world begins to form in your consciousness.
The Importance of Jupiter Conjunct the New Moon
I’ve noticed a lot of interest among my astrological colleagues regarding the importance of the New Moon occurring only 4° after an exact Jupiter conjunction. The following general qualities of Jupiter can help you understand the significance of additional manifesting support that this conjunction is offering.
- Jupiter helps us to assimilate all aspects of life through the expansive qualities of growth and abundance.
- Jupiter helps us expand our sense of self beyond our personal boundaries to include our society and culture.
- Jupiter supports all forms of management and organizational skills as an expression of the geometric patterns (grids) of light that support and expand life.
- Jupiter supports all forms of societal structure, and helps us come into relationship through our participation in culture with the power to grow through cooperation.
What I would like to contribute to this conversation is a better understanding of Jupiter’s impact at this specific moment, especially in terms of providing a clearer picture of the opportunities ahead as they relate to the New Moon.
Jupiter’s power with this New Moon stems from its organizational ability working in tandem with organic patterns of growth. In other words, Jupiter can assimilate the new energy and then create patterns of organization that allow both life and consciousness to grow and expand.
Therefore, Jupiter helps facilitate your ability to organize, manage, and expand your life in positive directions. The power of this New Moon anchors a specific point in time, allowing Jupiter to organize and expand life way beyond actual time constraints of our current Lunar cycle.
What makes this New Moon placement of Jupiter super interesting is the Sabian archetype for 5° Libra, which states: “A MAN REVEALING TO HIS STUDENTS THE FOUNDATION OF AN INNER KNOWLEDGE UPON WHICH A ‘NEW WORLD’ COULD BE BUILT.”
The Sabian underscores how the New Moon, which by its very nature releases a new seed, is combining with an additional foundational seed idea (Jupiter) that’s powerful enough to organize, manage, and build an entire new and better world.
Libra energies are preparing all of us to participate in the idea that we CAN build a “New World.” As these ideas and energies form and organize with the help of Jupiter, we can each participate in the creation of something larger and better than we have imagined before.
Not only does this New Moon hold perfect manifesting potential for creating a positive impact in your personal life, it also enables you to connect in a more immediate way with your larger Self and your ability to participate in creating a better world.
This New Moon offers a message of hope, empowerment, and encouragement for all of us as we step into the potential to create a larger reality. This powerful New Moon is working with Jupiter to expand your opportunity to help shape the future. This future begins with your own inspired idea upon which a ‘new world’ can be built.
In order to be fully present to these opportunities, it’s important to stay grounded and at the same time expand into a greater understanding of who you are in the world. It’s a time to embrace a bigger picture of the world in which you want to participate, a world in which you have a necessary and important role to play.
The past, future, and the present have converged into the NOW. Happy New Moon.
