Astrology Article: A Solid Step Forward
We are currently in a phase of growth initiated by the Lunar Eclipse two weeks ago. The New Moon supports this opportunity for growth by bringing a stabilizing force to your life enabling you to step into a larger relationship with your community, and by extension, the entire universe.
During the coming Lunar month, circumstances will provide opportunities to take action that will allow you to inspire others and serve your fellow human beings in a larger, even spectacular, way.
This stabilizing factor is normally assigned to the energies of Saturn. With Saturn in Sagittarius, stability is found through a deeper understanding of how the natural contrast between opposites can be connected. This “understanding” becomes a matter of perspective. When any of us are willing to rise far enough above the contrast, opposites become connected through being recognized as part of the next larger whole.
This ability for new perspective is part of living multi-dimensionally, which is the gift of the current Lunar eclipse.
In addition to support from Saturn, the overall pattern of this New Moon is also deeply connected to the outer planets of Uranus, Neptune, and Pluto. The pattern of the outer planets emphasizes an ability to transcend circumstances in order to bring the larger perspective of your life into a clearer focus.
Astrology Pattern: Expanding with Focus, Stability, and Success
One of the powerful elements of this New Moon astrology chart is the grouping of Venus, Mars, and Jupiter. Their pattern in the chart occurs in the same natural order, or sequence, as they do in the solar system. This natural order is significant by itself, but when you add the fact that they are grouped in Virgo, with the New Moon is occurring in the next sign of Libra, it becomes even more significant.
Virgo’s energy encompasses the final preparations and improvements needed to dedicate energies to something larger, be it your community, group, planet, or the entire universe. With this planetary support in Virgo, the New Moon in Libra is able to create a new focus in your life in order to expand, connect, and create a relationship with something larger than just yourself.
The stabilizing strength of this chart is further amplified by the fact that the four outer planets, Saturn, Uranus, Neptune, and Pluto are all in one hemisphere, while all the other planets are in the other. This hemisphere division is defined by Taurus and Scorpio and creates the opportunity for you to connect even more with this new capacity to understand the practicality of life (Taurus) from a larger perspective and deeper understanding (Scorpio).
This natural contrast of the divisions of the planets contains one of the most potent indicators of expansion and evolution that can exist in a New Moon astrology pattern. It naturally creates a pattern of success through focus and stability.
The Eclipse portal from the Full Moon Lunar Eclipse two weeks ago is supporting you now to expand into new dimensions of awareness. (Lunar Eclipse Article: Sept 27, 2015) The Libra New Moon is supporting your growth by creating a new focus that allows you to expand, but it does so in a very stable and secure manner. Building success in your life this month can easily be a thing of beauty, where focus and stabilizing energies come together with expansion in a perfect way.
