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.
From the mouth of Wikipedia, “In Chinese astrology, Venus is associated with the element metal, which is unyielding, strong and persistent.”

Great post Ka. I resonate with much of what you say here, even if I am not hip to all the astro-lingo. I especially love the message of new ancient. I was listening to something recently and a woman healer said one of the best things we can do these days to help the collective is embody the ancient wisdom with our modern mystical feet planted on the ground. Thanks for sharing your gifts, love.
Thank you, Amanda! I was in the process of reading your resonant post, and I thought, I better come back tomorrow after Tai Ji and leave a comment then. I started, but was having technical problems. I was delighted by the synchronicity of us trying to communicate at the same time (at least I was trying, and it wasn’t happening, synchronous enough for me:-). ). Xoxo, Ka
I’m with you. I felt instantly affirmed by our deep topical connection.
Much love always,
‘Deeply topical’ made me giggle. Enough said, hopefully 🙂
PS deep topical is kinda a silly attempt as a zen joke lol
Maybe it’s like a zen koan?
Thank you for levity 🙂
I loved your analysis of the OLD WOMAN’S MYSTERIOUS POWERS and your fairy tale choice this week (http://dreamrly.com/2014/09/20/fairy-tale-friday-the-old-womans-mysterious-powers-buddhism/) You do some beautiful work bringing this forward, the message is penetrating.
Have a beautiful day
I know the Feminine energies are now more powerful.. And I am happy to know also the New Moon is now opening up further those energies, as we experience our own inner feminine strengths bubbling to the surface.. ( I know on a personal note.. I have been happier in my own skin and have tackled some heavier jobs recently I would have normally left for hubby.. ) I think maybe my male side is lol dominating my retired self.. 😉 big smiles..
Hubby is at least liking the NEW FEMALE ENERGY 🙂 haha…
