Libra New Moon - a Call for Balance in a Dangerous Time


Taking a quick look at tomorrow's Libra New Moon which occurs @ 5:03 AM PDT or 8:03 AM EDT. The chart below is set for over Washington, DC. When we began to peruse, we immediately see that Saturn, Lord of Accountability and Karma is rising in Scorpio - not a wonderful omen for servicing debt. The chart's ancient ruler Mars is near Juno in overly exuberant Sagittarius in the 2nd House of Values, including money markets, banks and financial institutions. Both the warrior, Mars and the partnership asteroid Juno square Chiron, the ancient centaur healer now in victim sign Pisces. There will will be pain and wounds from this contact likely involving financial scandals.
Back to Saturn, the ringed planet  symbolizing security is rising with the messenger Mercury and N Node all in the sign of extremes, the stinging Scorpion or the soaring Eagle. The N Node of destiny is @ 26 degrees 22 minutes. North Node relates to moving into future destiny is also opposing S. Node in Taurus conjunct the Demon Star, Algol dealing with obsession intense sexual situations and intrigues. Saturn is also culminating with cruel ruthless Facies rising. Facies is the eye of the archer found in the Constellation Sagittarius known to have the penetrating stare of a lethal weapon. Facies is said to be one of the most potentially violent stars and with Saturn represents an outsider with an obsessive belief or action.

The Sun and Moon in balancing Libra reside in the 12th House representing news and issues centering around hospitals, prisons, institutions and any place of confinement or detention. Also with both of the lights in the 12th. issues concerning illness, charities, secret groups, secret government entities and enemies within will populate the mainstream news. Perhaps since Neptune, ruler of the 12th now near Chiron is square Mars and in the 4th house adding to more stories about oil, petroleum and the active, dangerous sinkhole in Louisiana. Poison and poisonings also correspond to the 12th house, Neptune  as they do Pluto and Mars rulers of Scorpio.  I mention the ongoing problem in Assumption Parish, where the latest Bayou Corne Sinkhole Flyover indicates: a thick slick of crude oil can be seen covering much of the sinkhole [...] oil and water can be seen flowing from the sinkhole into the adjacent environment.
The potential for widespread contamination is now a reality and not just in Louisiana. A recent story out of LOGAN COUNTY, Oklahoma underscores these fears - A water warning for residents in rural Logan County: a significant level of uranium has been found in the water. 

Tomorrow's New Moon @ 22 Libra 32 minutes will herald the start of something new as do all new moons. And this Sabian Symbol:
"A chanticleer (rooster) salutes the rising sun with exuberant tones."
My guess is that many of the hidden stories which have been in the shadows will surface in mainstream news. On a positive note Mercury (now in investigative Scorpio) is in a harmonious 60 degree angle to the lover Venus in detailed Virgo (Oct. 16th) will be boost to many relationships. From the business side especially high profile this combo is well aligned for mega mergers, agreements, business deals, the relaxing of controls by some of these companies. The Heliacal Rising Star for this Libra New Moon over both DC and San Francisco is Alkes. Alkes is the considered to be the sacred cup and alpha star of the constellation, The Crater. The Crater actually sits on the back of the Hydra given One legend says that the cup was given by Apollo to the raven ( Corvus) to fetch water. When Alkes is rising it is said to be the living vessel of a sacred body of knowledge or philosophy or prophetic gift. When we look below at the image we see the connections between Corvus, Alkes and the Hydra. Per George Noonan - Alkes has always portended eminence to those born under its influence. When rising the star indicates dedicated environmentalists whose love for rivers and streams lead them to be very protective regarding water resources I will go out on a limb and say during this lunation, the issue about polluting a number of aquifers in the Gulf Coast, further north, east and west is imminent and threatening. It is said that the aquifer system underlies parts of the East and West Gulf Coastal Plain and the Mississippi Alluvial Plain created by the Mississippi River on which lies parts of seven U.S. states, from southern Louisiana to southern Illinois.
Now the Heliacal Setting Star is Scheat. Scheat is found rising with the New Moon in San Francisco and DC. The star Scheat found in the constellation Pegasus. Scheat is known as love of intellect. This star is part of the Great Square of Pegasus which consisted of four stars; Alpheratz, Algenib, Markab and Scheat. As a setting star, Scheat reflects a time when one is forced to find success by leaving a safe place. Also in the chart above for DC, Scheat is culminating with Venus which inspires independent thought concerning style, fashion, relationships and new social customs. Scheat also has a major connection throughout history to floods and flood conditions. I have alluded to the fact over that last few weeks mainly because of the current Grand Water Trine involving Saturn (Scorpio) to Neptune(Pisces) and finally Ceres (Cancer).  The West Coast and Central USA might be in line with another Great Flood. In fact the Great Flood of 1862 or Noachian Deluge was the largest flood in the recorded history of Oregon, Nevada and California, occurring from December 1861 to January 1862. These floods which may have peaked on December 24, 1861 when another Grand Cardinal Cross was present with Neptune also in Pisces like today. the chart below was set for December 24, 1861 in Sacramento. Neptune rising opposing the Moon in Libra and Jupiter in late Virgo. They were crossed by the Sun-N Node in Capricorn, the seagoat opposing S. Node in wet Cancer on the IC. In comparison, tomorrow's New Moon has Pluto (Capricorn) opposing Ceres(Cancer) TSQ Uranus in Aries.
