In the Stars September 25-October 2 ... Shining Light on the Astrology of the Week: New Moon


The New Moon in Libra occurs at 2:54 p.m. PDT on Sunday, September 25. This New Moon is extremely impactful due to it being conjunct the Super Galactic Center (SCG) (not to be confused with the Galactic Center at 27 degrees of Sagittarius). The SCG is an enormous power point of energy, a massive black hole (https://www.philipsedgwick.com/). Sabian Symbols expert Lynda Hill describes the symbolism: “In short, it is about connecting with the Mind of God, about changes and ascension in consciousness and bringing about and accepting changes, and the knowledge that we can, and do, create our own realities, our own lives.” Both Mercury and Venus move over this point in the two weeks, amplifying the energy that our thoughts create our reality. Jupiter opposes the New Moon, which also expands the symbolism. We may be especially optimistic and aim high. The Sabian Symbol for this New Moon is: The Dawn of a New Day Reveals Everything Changed.


Saturn and Uranus are now within a 1-degree square of each other, and this tight aspect continues throughout October. This last square (before these planets again square each other 45 years from now) demand revolutionary change. One example of this is the Queen of England’s death following a 70-year reign. Another is the big shifts in financial markets. What in your own life needs to die to give birth to new forms?


Mercury, Jupiter, Saturn, Chiron, Uranus, Neptune, and Pluto in retrograde motion. This is a time for deep introspection and reconsideration, signaling time to review, reconsider, and revise. Sunday, October 2, Mercury stations to turn direct. Pluto will follow on October 8. These two planets lead the way out of strong retrograde motion that will continue to occur over the coming months.


Venus moves into Libra, the sign it rules, on Wednesday, ushering in a three-week period of grace, attention to relationship, and social and visual artistry. See the list of “Ten Things to Do with Venus in Libra” at the end of this blog.
