Getting Above And Beyond It All: October’s Libran New Moon

 In Blog Posts, Lunar Blog

Words have no wings but they can fly many thousands of miles. Korean proverb

The airplane stays up because it doesn’t have the time to fall. Orville Wright

Twinkle, twinkle, little bat! How I wonder what you’re at! Up above the world you fly! Like a tea tray in the sky. Lewis Carroll

Faith without works is like a bird without wings; though she may hop with her companions on earth, yet she will never fly with them to heaven. Francis Beaumont

October’s new Moon occurs on October 19 in the US and October 20 in Australia in Libra. This is yet another powerful lunation, and, it’s one with some very strong messages. With Uranus exactly opposite this new Moon, we are likely to have some very interesting messages coming through, breakthroughs, realizations and decisions that can see some big changes being made, at least on some level (physically, mentally, emotionally, etc.) 

The message from Uranus has been very interesting for several months this year, and, especially just recently. Up until a few weeks ago, Uranus was on Aries 28: A LARGE DISAPPOINTED AUDIENCE, and, I imagine that most of us have felt that keenly. Whether it’s the shocking and devastating weather events this year; the hurricanes, flooding, record heat temperatures, fires, hurricanes again, the circus that passes as politics, many have had a lot to feel ‘disappointed’ about. Even if we were not affected personally, we might have picked up on the suffering of others, the sheer sense of defeat and alienation that many around the world have been feeling. Uranus is retrograde, and, it’s changed degrees, and, it’s current transit over Aries 27 is a lot more heartening. 

Uranus is now on Aries 27: THROUGH IMAGINATION, A LOST OPPORTUNITY IS REGAINED. Uranus’ passage retrograde over this degree is asking us to take a good look at our inner and outer dialogue. How and what do we think as we go about our lives? Could our dialogue be improved? We may need to observe our thoughts, random or otherwise, to see how we’re creating our days, our lives… As I’ve mentioned before, I have been listening to a lot of Neville Goddard’s lectures on Youtube (highly recommended), and, Neville talks about how our ‘wonderful human imagination’ creates everything. Neville says that nothing was created without imagination, and, his argument is compelling. Casting his chart, I was delighted (but not really surprised) to see that his Jupiter is Aries 27. He talks about imagination constantly, and, his message is one of taking control of our lives by realising that we are the true manifestation of God. It’s fascinating stuff. Neville Goddard died in the 70’s, so he’s no longer around (as Neville, at least), but, there are hundreds of his lectures on Youtube to enrich our lives. He says over and over that ‘assumption hardens into fact’, and, if we actually assume that we have something, are in possession of something (rather than affirmations of want or lack or need), that assumption will become our reality. Neville says that we can rewrite the past by seeing it in a completely different light; by rewriting what happened in our minds. All very holographic stuff, and, Neville comes out of the fabulous New Thought movement which sits more easily with me than the current New Age movement. 

Whether or not one gets into the messages of Neville Goddard, Uranus is giving us an opportunity to use this time to rethink our thoughts. I find it useful to notice negative thoughts or messages coming to mind by saying ‘not useful now’, ‘don’t need to think about that’, or, just dropping the story altogether. 

Jupiter has just recently entered Scorpio where it will stay until November 8, 2018. Jupiter’s message at this new Moon is one of building community. Whether it’s stepping up to help others, to join together to share our skills and our tools, or, donate funds or any number of other positive contributions, we are being asked to think of our communities. Of course, especially as this is Jupiter, our community can be the world, but, we might also find that we want to improve our general environment as well. Jupiter and Mercury are conjunct (together), and, this can help us to see the bigger picture, the bigger story in our lives, the universe, everything 😉 

Mercury is conjunct Jupiter at this new Moon, giving us the ability to go deeper, to think more deeply, to concentrate New Moon set for Washington DC on issues that we might have put aside. Mercury’s passage over the few days after the new Moon is one of letting go of things from the past, and, Mercury passes over some extra psychic and clairvoyant (knowing) degrees. 

Saturn is trining the Moon’s north node, and, we might be feeling the need to get more organised, to throw out those things we no longer need, to get more structured and disciplined. We can accomplish a great deal with this energy now, especially if we’re paying attention to the messages coming our way. 

Mars is going from Virgo to Libra at this new Moon, and, as such, traversing the Super Galactic Center over the week or so following the new Moon. It’s time to connect in with that Law Of Attraction and see how we’re manifesting our life. What do you want to change? What needs revision? Soon, in November and December, we’ll also have Saturn transiting the Galactic Center, so, we’re being asked to really tune into our positive thoughts and aspirations. Onwards and upwards! 

Mars is also separating from opposing Chiron and squaring Saturn, so, the lead up to this new Moon has felt rather fraught with difficulties, and, for many, frustration. The recent sex scandals in the US have been reflected in this t-square with Chiron on a degree that speaks about people leaving, splitting off (or, some cases, desertion), and, we’re seeing many questioning issues to do with power with Chiron again about to traverse Pisces 25: THE PURGING OF THE PRIESTHOOD

There’s more that can be said about this new Moon, but, it is mostly covered in the list of Sabian Symbols for the planets below.

The new Moon is on Libra 27: AN AIRPLANE SAILS, HIGH IN THE BRIGHT CLEAR SKY – the following is my interpretation from my book The Sabian Oracle: 360 Degrees Of Wisdom – 

Aviator In The CloudsCommentary: ‘An Airplane Sails High in the Bright Clear Sky’ is an image of flight and escape and gives the feeling of unfettered freedom. It can symbolize being carefree and not bound to the everyday, grounded realities that most people are caught up in. Being in the ‘Airplane’ can bring a sense of being above everything, an observer and somewhat detached. We all need moments of clear, focused detachment and the enjoyment of life’s pleasures.

Oracle: There may be some people in this situation that need to be recognized, embraced or noticed in some way. Maybe it is you that has to do this, or to receive it. You, or another, may feel that they are somehow “above” or beyond the situation, but how long can one go on flying so high? Somebody in this situation is probably avoiding the reality of what’s going on, or they may be avoiding having close, intimate interactions with people around them. How long can there continue to be ‘Bright Clear Sky’? We all need to come down to earth after some incredible or gravity defying experience, even if we don’t want to—or don’t feel ready to. For now, there may be the feeling that you are above the situation and are being carried beyond this time or place to something completely new. There is probably a need for calm objective observation. ‘Sailing’ above difficulties, and people, may bring new information to light; things that you weren’t able to “see”, or know, previously. For the moment, ‘Sailing’ on and enjoying both the experience and the view may be what’s needed. However, sooner or later you’re going to have to land back in reality. Are you prepared not only for the flight but also for the landing? What are the real down-to-earth needs that are being shown and that need attention?

Keywords: Transcending difficulties or escape from reality. Optimism that knows no bounds. A bird’s eye view of things. Detachment. Objectivity. Chemical influences. Freedom from life’s routine. Pilots and planes. Clear air turbulence. Roller coaster rides. Awareness of up and down, left and right, in and out. Sense of destination. Decreasing gravity. Acceleration of time. Fisheye lens. The need for navigation.

Through Imagination A Lost Opportunity Is Regained Neville Goddard sayingThis Symbol shows the talent or the ability to be able to use inner creative energy to revitalize ideas or opportunities that seemed to be lost. Whatever it is that you need to do, believe that it is possible and create an image in your mind and you will most likely succeed at gaining it or recovering it.
