As well as being in the sign of balance, this Equinox Libra New Moon marks several significant astrological and spiritual events: at this important time of changing seasons and setting intention, today is the beginning of Navratri, India’s nine-day adoration of the Goddess. It is also Rosh Hashana and Jewish New Year.
From the astrological point of view, the light of the Sun is now conjunct Laneakia, which is the very heart of our Galaxy cluster, opening us to the possibility of connecting to other galaxies.
The Libra Sun, aligned with Laneakia, shines directly upon Jupiter in Aries, astrology’s ‘Cosmic Guru’, now in apparent retrograde motion (going back into sign of traditional rulership Pisces, from where the ‘Sacred Teacher’, Jupiter, radiates blessings). Jupiter is also at its closest to Earth in 60 years; this is a Kalachakra cycle accenting World Peace.
Because Jupiter is closer, the ‘Wise Sage’ will now be easy to see in the night sky over the coming months. Look up at midnight to see Jupiter beaming directly overhead. Jupiter will also be close to the Moon as she approaches culmination, towards the Full Moon, 9th Oct.
Also this lunation, from New Libra Moon 25th September @21:55 to New Scorpio Moon, October 26th, heralds a once-a-century shift of the Venus Star Point, October 22nd, when the Sun is conjunct Venus in Libra. Venus is both Goddess of Love & War, and will be in her home sign of the Libran scales, sign of fairness and harmony, art and culture, beauty and relationship. This is a momentous move as it is the first time as ‘Venus Cazimi’ (conjunct Sol, as one of the five points on a 5-point star, aka the ‘Venus Rose Mandala’) in Libra since 1889.
Wishing all beings Peace and Love with this very cosmic, Venus-ruled Equinox New Libra Moon
