I'm fixing to heed my own advice and go radio silent with the Dark of the Moon. Today I wrote on 3 Ways to Protect Your New Moon Wishes on About.com.
It's an art to tune in to the energies there, and then to have feelers and antennae alert to what's going to just muck it up.
So my Moon gadget to the right here is showing that Luna is 0% of Full.
A final thought about the Taurus New Moon (exact late Sun, early hours Monday for US East Coast/London)....to do with Venus and Neptune, the love supremes you can call them.
My friend Jamie Walters pointed out the two T-squares in the New Moon chart. That's a lot of churning, provoking, struggle-to-be-born kind of action. One is in the first decan degrees of mutables (Saturn, Mars and Neptune) -- the other is in first responder cardinal signs (Venus, Uranus and Pluto).
What I note here is that two planets involved in those T-squares, are in a friendly angle to each other -- Venus and Neptune at 9 degrees in water signs. Venus is in nurturing, but touchy-protective Cancer. Neptune is at home in the sign of the dreamer, and that includes shared dreams of culture like art, cinema and music.
So a love note from these planets, could be to let love be the bridge that takes you to new fertile ground. That what's struggling to be born is a world that is driven by what we share, this divine urge to love and protect others, especially the young, vulnerable or those down on their luck.
Time to invest in the beautiful and morally upright. To plant seeds of new stories, art, music and movies that celebrate empathy, overcoming, elevating and comforting.
The biggies like Saturn might say to let this naturally humane side lead, there's some deprogramming to do. A new world is being ordered out of the chaos (Uranus and Pluto), but will we fall prey to beliefs or conditioning that rob us of our humanity?
The magic love potion of Venus and Neptune is here at the Venus-touched New Moon, to revive, elevate, and urge us each to transcend with small and big steps.
Every now and then, I get a reminder that all of this -- this whole Earthly life -- is about love, in all its expressions. That includes high risk, courageous love that overthrows the milquetoast, but familiar, status quo.
And that's the octave that's being belted out here by the cosmic chorus. You can play the Diva of your own life, cheers on the Jupiter-Uranus trine in breathless and big personality fire signs.
All the while,Venus and its higher octave Neptune are strumming the sweeter melodies within us -- and around us -- as reminders of what it's all about. Catch you all on the flip-side!
