Sun is Libra, 8° 15'
Moon is Libra, 8° 15'
The new moon in Libra, for the western hemisphere, is the second new moon of the month, the opposite of the blue moon. However, because of the time of the event, this is not a second new moon in most of the eastern hemisphere. Jupiter in Libra is forming a conjunction to the new moon, adding to a positive attitude for the day. The new moon conjunction is forming a square to Mars in Capricorn. We are likely to be more impulsive than usual. The new moon conjunction is also forming a sextile to Saturn in Sagittarius, that will hopefully rein in some of the impulsivity.
Mercury is moving back through Virgo after the retrograde motion ended last week. Mercury is moving out of a trine to Pluto in Capricorn that was helping us to better understand the complexity of situations. This understanding is starting to fade, so hopefully, some notes were made to help sustain that understanding into the future.
Venus in Scorpio is moving over a critical degree that intensifies the transit through this sign. Venus is forming an exact trine to Neptune retrograde in Pisces, today, that taps into our relationships with others and can also impact how we spend our hard earned money. Proceed with caution, as we may not be fully understanding the investment or the commitment needed. Venus is moving into a sextile to Pluto in Capricorn that has us digging deeper to fix relationships or correcting situations that we are responsible for creating.
Mars in the early degrees of Capricorn is forming a square to Jupiter in Libra which is loosely conjunct to the new moon in Libra. This can turn into a bit of a bully-fest if we are not cautious within the scenario.
Saturn in Sagittarius is forming a square to Neptune retrograde in Pisces. Trust, power and fears will be all tied into one package of sensitive emotions throughout the week. Approach the fears and explore the trust issues to get a better understanding of how to work through the situation.
For the most part, this chart is balanced except in the area of modalities. There are six planet placements in Cardinal signs, which tends to make us more "fearless" in our approach. Yet this may be mistaken as callousness if we don't temper our attitudes with patience and comprehension of others around us. Granted, the new moon is all about introspection and inward realization. On the other hand, we need to be willing to reflect on how our actions are impacting the whole, rather than than just the self. Our self-motivation needs some level of self-moderation.
Meditation for the October 1st New Moon
When two parties are trapped in a situation, and one is incapable of thought or decision, the other must decide for both of them.
