Here’s the Sabian Symbol for Libra 2: “A new symphony is played by the orchestra; the music dramatizes racial progress from aspiration to realization.”
This New Moon in Libra is approx within a 7 degree orb of conjunction with Venus (Feminine, Sensory, Value system, Resources, Relationship) in Virgo (Health & Service, Analysis, Purity). Also, approximately within a 7 degree orb is a grand trine: Mars in Sagittarius, Uranus in Aries, and Jupiter in Leo. Holy smokes, folks! That’s fiery!
New Moon in Libra:
Let’s look at what Venus says (since it is within 7-8 degree orb conjunction of the New Moon, and it rules Libra)…and, I am actually reading ‘this’ from Venus’s opposition with Chiron in Pisces: It’s about psychic wounds, being a sponge, and the wounds we receive from the collective unconscious regarding femininity, and our inherent role as healers and nurturers (Moon square Pluto). It’s about healing racial, gender, and class divisions – seeing the spiritual (Pisces) in the material (Taurus) and the authentic balancing of the scales (Libra).
In Western astrology, Venus represents the feminine aspect as receptive. It appears that we are re-writing what ‘feminine’ is in this era, as women liberate themselves all over the world. As young women like Malala Yousafzai show us the way to be fearless in the face of real terror. As the divine feminine makes its WAY through the collective unconscious in a NEW and yet *very ancient* way.
