New Moon Phase: beginnings

Moon in Libra

Skill: stalk wisdom and respond to whatever crosses your path

Negative Imprint: "know it alls," avoiding personal responsibility, blinded, obligations that drain, refusing to believe anything positive, limitations

Positive Imprint: awakening, clarity, power of believing, make believe, inner child, assistance, imprints, observation, reverence for small/simple things

Today we are runnin' down a dream as new possibilities, opportunities, and alternatives are emerging.  We're working on a mystery and going wherever it leads.

I'm semi-ripping off a Tom Petty song, but the sentiment fits today, as we are stalking wisdom and ready to respond to what crosses our path.

The Sabian symbol of the position of Sabaoth the Sun today is "the dawn of a new day reveals everything changed."  This is the energy of new beginnings, perfectly timed within the New Moon phase.  We see things are different in the light of a new day.  We gain new perspectives, insights, and "Aha!" moments.  Darkness lifts.

Holding on to the past will diminish the highest potential of today's energy.

The energy also brings us a growing understanding of who we really are and how we are playing our role in the grand drama of the story of Gaia Sophia and humanity.  Today's energy tends to have us concerned about how we want to make our mark or, in more practical terms, what we are doing with our lives.  This may produce feelings of failure, limitation, and lack - all Archontic (Rcontick) tricks of the mind.  If these feelings begin to come over or dawn on you, go outside.  Have a conversation with Mother Nature.  Tell her your troubles.  Then listen and watch and feel the stirring inside the heart that happens when we connect with her.  Let down your guard and let her in.

The tendency to over-identify oneself with materiality and the values of the matrix is heightened today.  Externals like social status and prestige, appearance, material wealth, and material possessions are overly highlighted.  Don't get caught in the trap of comparing yourself to others with all of this.  Focus on your own values and what you hold dear.

Venus issues (relationships, love, beauty, money) are pressed to the surface today also.  This comes more in the form of the loss of these things.  Again, following down this path is the wrong way to go because it holds us in the past.  If you are in the past and not willing to change with the road, you will miss opportunities.

As I discussed yesterday, this month will present situations where we are in need of assistance or are providing assistance to someone else.  This may show up today in either form.  Your wisdom can help someone to cope with, understand, or learn something.  What you say can bring the return of hope to someone for whom the truth of matters is clouded.  Reach out.  Your knowledge plus your experience is your wisdom.

On Monday, September 23, a solar fare erupted and a coronal mass was ejected.  This occurred at 7:16 pm ET/11:16 pm UT, seven hours before the New Moon.  The Moon was located at 28 Virgo with the Sabian symbol of "a bald-headed man who has seized power."  This image discusses rushing forward and domination, but the highest octave of the energy is about firmly grounding ourselves with decisions and intentions.  It is an empowering energy that can be used for power in either manner - positive or negative.  I have always wondered about the significance of the "bald-headed man" in this image and my notions of it continue to evolve.  Perhaps there is a message for you within this symbol.

As we are runnin' down our dreams today, let's maintain vigilant awareness that a mystery is unfolding.  Libra is ruled by Eris (and secondarily by Venus) and Eris was called the Goddess of Chaos and Strife.  We see this in abundance with the collective at large and to a different degree within our individual lives right now.  But another one of Eris' names from a different epoch is Isis, the Mistress of Magic.  There is chaos and strife but there is also magic and mystery.  Wise owls are aware of both and respond befittingly as we see new things dawning.
