The New Moon in Libra will occur on October 8th, 2018 at 15 degrees Libra. The Sun and Mercury will also be in Libra, anchoring in the energies of love, unity, beauty, and art. As an air sign, Libras are intellectual, brilliant, and social. They blow with the wind and spread their love to all without restraint. The flip side of Libra is that they can be flighty, indecisive, and non-committal due to their airy nature.
This New Moon however will have intensity as Jupiter and Venus Rx are stationed in Scorpio and Pluto and Saturn are now direct in Capricorn. The Moon will conjunct the asteroid Ceres, quincunx Neptune, and square Pluto. In mythology, Pluto stole Ceres’ daughter and took her to the underworld. Eventually, an agreement was worked out between the two for Ceres to see her daughter. While her daughter was away, all of the crops would die and only return to healthy blooms once she returned. This was the myth behind the seasons of harvest. It is very symbolic that these two are both making aspects to this New Moon.
As the New Moon conjuncts Ceres, ruler of nurturing and harvest, mother issues will come into play, as well as family ties and bonds. Ceres was an independent mother, so the themes around feminine independence and strength will be highlighted. This is perfectly aligned with the release of balanced harmonics on the planet which will return the divine feminine to their rightful place. Issues around crops, natural resources, and the environment will also come to the forefront, and how we have raped and destroyed our Mother Earth. There will be consequences to pay for what Humanity has done to their Mother.
We should also feel more compassionate and nurturing around this time, as Ceres is the ultimate nurturer and caregiver. As we move into the final moments of ascension, we must be compassionate with those around us who are not prepared for these events. Unconditional love will be the key, especially with ourselves.
New Moon Quincunx Neptune
As the Sun and Moon will be quincunx Neptune in Pisces, spirituality and concepts of something bigger than ourselves will begin to penetrate the collective consciousness. This is the time when humanity will begin to awaken to the fact that they have been living in illusion (Neptune). Many will fall into victim consciousness, which is a common theme of Neptune. If we can tap into the magic of this aspect, we will begin to expand our consciousness in ways that were not previously possible. Mom has paved the way for all to become their higher selves and this Moon is perfect to begin integrating that.
Neptune also represents poisons and toxins, and with the aspect to Ceres, we will likely see the issues surrounding the poisoning of our food and water become a hot topic. We have completely pillaged Mother Earth of her resources and poisoned our own ecosystem. Karma has now been fully released and all must come back into balance, with integrity.
New Moon Square Pluto
Pluto is the ruling planet of Scorpio and he is a ruthless teacher. Pluto has just gone direct in Capricorn early this month, and coincides with all karma being released. Pluto transforms by way of destruction, and teaches the most difficult of lessons. Humanity has now manifested for themselves a very rude awakening, as they have denied Mothergod and refused to embody love. This Moon will bring fated events and karmic occurrences, as now is the time for humanity to reap what they have sown.
Issues of power, control, and manipulation will need to be faced as these cannot enter the new paradigm. We must release these urges and embrace the beautiful energy of Libra who favors cooperation, partnerships, and justice. Many will be unable to handle the intensity of these energies and may seek to power-over you. Now is the time to stand up and take your power back and be the warriors of light we agreed to be.
All remaining fears will have to be faced head on in order to realize that the fear itself is the only thing keeping us feeling stuck or hopeless. Let everything go and release attachments to everyone and everything. Those that attempt to hold on tighter will experience the severity of this New Moon, while others will experience growth and expansion like never before.
This New Moon is the beginning of a new cycle that harnesses the energy of Libra and the new paradigm. Libras always see the other’s side and can walk in their shoes. This gives them great compassion and understanding. Most of humanity is living in the mind, projecting their hurt and pain onto others and in constant judgment and superiority. This New Moon will bring swift transformation as it will rip away all that you have been holding onto that is EGO. Pluto does not care about what you want or don’t want, it’s purpose is to teach you the hard lessons that you need. Embrace, accept and allow all that occurs around this New Moon and set your intention to be in full surrender to love and the divine will. With the conjunction to Ceres, it is now our time to stand up and help Mom take her planet back into heaven on Earth, the Garden of Eden, and restore it to its original purity.
After the karmic events take place and humanity begins to awaken to the illusion they have all been living in, we will enter the beginning of the new paradigm of love everywhere present, and all the energies of Libra-beauty, balance, justice, integrity, divine intelligence, and unity consciousness.
As Mom prepares to ascend we prepare for the world to experience drastic change. New Earth is here. Love everywhere present is here. Justice will be served and Mom will get her planet back. LOVEHASWON!
