When I had my wisdom teeth out, when I was in college, my mother came up to see me, to take care of me. I’m pretty sure I’ve written about it here before, how I needed and “enjoyed” the synthetic morphine I was given for the immense pain. Four impacted wisdom teeth out at once. Funny phrase, isn’t it? Wisdom teeth. But best of all was listening to Philip Glass’ record album (yes, vinyl) Glassworks and I remember asking my mother to turn it over, turn it over.
I like listening to Philip Glass anytime but especially this time of year: the relief I feel in the change of the weather… I cannot describe it other than to tell you to listen to the first track, “Opening” on Glassworks. It makes me feel like running. And writing. I imagine it’s what riding a horse must feel like.
So I want to talk about the upcoming Libra New Moon in late September at 4 degrees Libra. A New Moon is at the same degree as the Sun, it’s a conjunction. They are married. Mercury will also be in Libra then, at 2 degrees. It’s a plural marriage
By then Venus will be catching up to Saturn: Venus at 15, Saturn at 18, another conjunction especially powerful because Venus is applying, and the faster mover of the two. Can you see this in your head? All these planets? The first cluster? And then the second?
Mars will be in Leo, sextiing the Libra crowd, which gives Libra energy, a new dress perhaps Uranus of course will be opposing the New Moon and her friends: maybe Uranus spills something on that new dress. And Pluto, yes, will be squaring them. Pluto Pluto Pluto, you’re such a drag sometimes but I am feeling … I am not feeling tight about this Pluto square, I am not feeling shat upon I am feeling… like God’s scalpel is going to come and cut out a little spot in your Libra House, lift it out, cleanly, gauze it, sop up any blood, and off you go on your merry way to HEAL.
Still, it’s a New Moon. What do you want?
Cancer is the empty leg of the t-square but it’s planet-free unless you have something in your chart around those degrees. Pay close attention to that Cancer house of yours. It’s your relief. It’s your “out.” It’s the fourth leg of the table. It makes the table stable again so you can eat dinner upon it.
So. Is this a dinner party you want to attend? With the Libra New Moon as hostess? Well, my friends, fellow star gazers, you have no choice
Now is the time, and you know I’ll keep reminding you, to grab your decaf latte and your gluten-free cookie and your chart and find your Libra house. Early degrees, please. See if you have any planets there. And check for oppositions, squares, and trines.
There’s not always a big story in the heavens, although this one is a nice size Far as I’m concerned, the big story is in your chart, your life. Your story. The only one you have. Sun in Libra, Moon in Libra, Mercury, Venus, Saturn… you must untangle what Libra Season means for you.
