Potential for Growth and Transformation – Be Brave
With Jupiter (newly placed in Scorpio) sitting up close and personal with both the New and Full Moons this month, there is so much opportunity for transformation.
For those brave and willing enough to take action – personal growth, empowerment and a deepening of intimacy within relationships could well be the prize.
Libra is a sign associated with beauty, harmony and grace, but these things are not always possible without first taking a deep dive below the surface and dealing with all the stuff that’s lurking down within there.
The Jupiter/Mercury conjunction in Scorpio at this New Moon is giving you the opportunity for that deep dive and the ability to confront what may not be quite so pretty!
This is a great New Moon for psychological analysis and for seeing the broader picture of the patterns that are at play within your life …
… because, yes!! – whatever is happening within your relationship(s) is absolutely a reflection of your relationship with yourself.
Emotional Honesty Can Lead to Freedom and Connection
Scorpio energy is strongly intuitive and with Uranus opposing this New moon, it’s a great time to have a good honest feel around your relationship(s).
It could well prove enlightening and the more honest you can be about what you truly want out of life (with yourself and others), the more you’ll feel able to create the next part of your life in a far more emotionally honest way…
… and that leads to greater freedom and greater connection – even if that honest talk involves needing more space!!
What are you allowing or not allowing?
Are you able to relate well with others or are are you so reigned in with self control and erected walls that no one can get close?
Maybe it’s time to confront some fears and allow some vulnerability again?
No man is an Island and it can get a little lonely out there all on your own.
Broadening the Mind, Increasing Perception
Expect to have some enlightening and mind-broadening conversations this month.
If you’ve been considering a new course of study then the Jupiter/Mercury conjunction in Scorpio is likely to imbue you with greater focus and laser-like ability to grasp those concepts.
You’re likely to pick up on other’s energy and your environment far more readily around this new moon as well, so if someone’s telling you something, but your body response is feeling it very differently, listen to your intuition!!
Scorpio energy feels intensely and that includes the unspoken!!
The Desire for Beauty and Connection
Where do you desire more beauty and connection within your life and what do you need to change to make it happen?
Venus (the Goddess of Love and the planet in Astrology, which rules Libra) is placed in her own sign under the beams of this New Moon.
Venus represents your sense of balance, harmony, beauty and inner peace.
Consider what makes you feel beautiful and abundant…
… Flowers, Beauty Treatments, Beautiful Clothes, the smell of Essential Oils?
Do you allow yourself the pleasure of these?
Are your surroundings beautiful to you? Is your home?
Do they connect you with a sense of well-being, peace and serenity?
How do you connect with your partner?
Do you quickly kiss each other as you head out the door each day and fall into bed beside one another exhausted at the end of that day ….
… or do you make time in your life to deepen your intimacy with one another, to fully enjoy one another and the connection that you share?
Is it time to re-establish one-on-one date nights or to make some crazy, passionate love regardless that you’re going to have to be up at 5.30am to make the kids sandwiches for school and your toddler’s already woken you 3 times!!
… well, you’re up now anyway aren’t you?
Mars’ placement in Virgo asks that you take practical and methodical steps to take towards those goals, but be wary of a critical streak and the ability for some serious criticising; especially if someone attempts to open up to you and you don’t like what you’re hearing.
Potential for Deep Healing
If you can allow yourself the emotional honesty this month you may well find that you have the ability to purge out those unhelpful patterns and detoxify your relationships.
And yes, this can apply to all of your relationships – family, work, intimate…
Sometimes, in order to gain that much-sought-after peace we first have to do our time with the opposite.
Raising issues and making a stand against what you will no longer tolerate can potentially appear to tip the scales in completely the opposite direction for a while…
… but, this is usually only until the issue is dealt with and resolved.
Elephants are not easily hidden under carpets and cracks will soon reappear from beneath the paint.
So consider what’s the best solution for you – denial and suppression or emotional honesty and freedom?
Which area of your life is likely to be affected by this New Moon?
Where does this New Moon fall within your natal chart?
If you’re unsure of how to find this and would like help with understanding your natal chart, you can sign up for my newsletter and receive my E-Book “Introductory Tips for Astrological Self Awareness” for free.
Look for 26 degrees and 35 seconds of Libra. which is the position of the New Moon.
What does that house (area of life) represent?
Are there any planets, which fall at (or very close to) 26 degrees within your natal chart?
