Every month the Sun and the Moon come together, sprinkling our thoughts and emotions with a burst of creative energy. New Moons bring fresh starts, perfect for planting seeds and turning our eyes to the future. Steeped in darkness as it crosses the space between Earth and the Sun, the New Moon encourages us to look within and connect with our unexpressed wishes. This is not a time for action yet, but for wading through and birthing intentions. Full of energy and zeal, new ideas abound, inner desires surface, the vision is vivid, yet not quite defined. Not a time for action yet, this is a time of instincts, dreams, and spontaneity. We are forming goals and intentions, not cohesive plans and rational ideas. We are in tune with what we want and what we need. Over the next four weeks what started as the germ of an idea begins to take root, with themes reflecting the symbolism of the house of our chart in which the New Moon falls.
Mercury enters Scorpio
The New Moon transiting the houses of the natal chart
The Moon is transiting my 12th house right now as I finish up this blog series of Luna through the houses during her monthly jaunt through the zodiac. Compassion, unconditional love, innocence, openness, the hermit, the mystic, the spiritual healer—we rarely hear those archetypes spoken of regarding the 12th. Where we are in isolation, on the edge of the abyss! Jails, prisons, institutions—that too comes through the astrological grapevine about the 12th. The motion of the energy of Neptune and Pisces is inward and on the highest level represents the totality of consciousness, universal mind and the collective unconscious. People who are comfortable here are often though of as crazy and end up being institutionalized in some way, thus the connection with jails, prisons and institutions. The feelings of being alone and cut off; some folks are actually comfortable in that state and relish it, thrive in it. I say that in a very general way since of course there can be more than one sign in a house, intercepted signs, and planets with their aspects. But right now we are talking about the Moon as she transits through the 12th, so better stick to that topic and not wander off as Luna in 12 tends to do.
