Super New Moon

Tomorrow, September 27, there will be a new moon in Libra. It will also be a super moon, a new or full moon that coincides with a close approach of the moon to the earth.  New moons are about new beginnings, new chapters opening in our lives.  But thanks to a challenging angle from Uranus, these new opportunities come at you out of the blue and may be jarring.

Before you read any farther, you may want to go here   to find out where Libra is in your natal chart. You’ll need your date, time, and place of birth.  Once you locate where Libra is in your chart, check here to find out what that particular house rules. That’s where the opportunities as well as the challenge will appear.

Let’s say you have Libra on the cusp of your second house of finances. That would mean new money opportunities, but also some sort of angst or tension surrounding finances on that day because of these challenging angles from Pluto and Uranus. Here's the symbol to look for in your chart (LIbra):

In my own chart, for example, Libra rules my twelfth house. This house rules all that is hidden, the personal unconscious, power you’ve disowned, institutions, dreams. So, with five planets crowded into my twelfth house that day, my personal unconscious is going to be rockin’  and rollin’.  But in terms of opportunities,  I may have a super powerful dream that illuminates a concern I have. I might make new friends, network in a new way,  or have a chance to work behind the scenes, doing something I enjoy. Balance will be key. 

At the time of this new moon – 7:09:35 AM EDT, there will be five planets in Libra – the sun and moon, of course, at 4 degrees Libra, Mercury (conscious mind), Venus (love, romance) and Saturn ( structures, karma, discipline). Libra is a cardinal air sign. Libra individuals are perpetually seeking balance and will often bend over backward to find that balance.  So those traits are going to be really apparent in everyone. The challenge is the Uranus opposition to the sun, moon, and Mercury, and an exact and challenging angle from Pluto. Either one of these challenging angles can make for trouble; both of them could prove to be unpleasant.

Energy will abound on the 27th, thanks to  a strong, positive angle from Mars in Leo, a fire sign that ‘s compatible with Libra. Mars symbolizes, physical stamina, aggression, sexuality.  So, the bottom line here? Buckle up. It could be a very wild ride!

On a global level, this super moon could be a harbinger of earthquakes or other natural disasters. Last’s year February 28 super moon coincided with three events: the February 27,  8.8 earthquake in Chile, the Pacific tsunami warning triggered by that quake, and the February 24 “snow hurricane” in the northeast. Scientists says there’s no connection between super moons and quakes or any other disasters. Here’s  an article about that published a day before the super moon on March 19, 2011, and a week after the 9.0 quake in Japan.
Here’s another article  where the author  - “weather guy” - isn’t a supporter of the super moon theory. But by the end of this post, He has found some other “coincidences” where disasters coincided with super moons.

I've been digging through the house all day trying to find my mid life chart i had done a while back...anxious to see where this is going for me. Sounds like it's going to be an interesting ride for sure!

People are so closed aren't they?


thanks so much for these links to obtaining my individual chart! the new moon has always maintained such a hold on me - on my energies and creativity - i can always expect several sleepless nights during the new moon - and then, there is the full moon...but that for another post! ;)
