Starcats Update – New Moon and Venus-Mars Conjoin

Bookmark and Share

OCTOBER 2, 2010

The Moon is in Vibrant Leo until Monday, October 4 at 1:00 pm PDT/3:00 pm EDT.

Keywords: Leo is a fixed fire sign and is ambitious, loves to be center stage, has star power, charisma, is speculative, extroverted, optimistic, honorable, dignified, confident, proud, dramatic, flamboyant, generious, competitive and a persuasive leader and orator.

Next Lunation: October 7, 2010 NEW MOON at 14 Libra 24.

World Affairs (personal astrology is below this section):

This New Moon conjoins the United State’s natal Saturn and squares (challenges) the USA’s Cancerian Sun. Since it takes Saturn 29 1/2 years to go around the zodiac, the USA is also in line for her 8th Saturn return two months from now!

This New Moon on the USA’s Saturn in square to the USA Sun vibrates with the Sun’s meet up with transiting Saturn in Libra on the autumn solstice of 9/22.

Sun and Saturn represent the president (Sun) and his authority (Saturn). Current trends reveal the administration’s powerful struggle to maintain the upper hand between now and midterm election day. The party in power (Sun-Saturn) seeks to maintain it’s advantage. It will not be easy and will not go as well as hoped. But also not as bad as some forecasters are hinting at. [This astrologer takes no sides when forecasting world affairs. The job is to translate planet messages as accurately and honestly as possible.]

New Moon Sabian Symbol: “Circular Paths” — We keep coming back around to the same place. This symbol makes me think of T.S. Eliot’s poem:

“We shall not cease from exploration,
And the end of all our exploring
Will be to arrive where we started
And know the place for the first time.
Quick now, here, now, always,
A condition of complete simplicity,
And all shall be well,
And all manner of thing shall be well.”

LITTLE GIDDING (No. 4 of ‘Four Quartets’)

Planet News:

October 3 brings the second of 3 Venus-Mars communions. The final one in this 6 1/2 year cycle takes place on May 23, 2011.

Our current Venus-Mars meet up is in the fixed water sign Scorpio at 13 degrees of the sign. The Sabian Symbol is:

“An Inventor Performs a Laboratory Experiment.”

This symbol advises that if things are not working the way we’d like them to, then it’s time to experiment with new modes and methods. New thought, new behavior, different view points open the door for creative discovery that lead us to innovative solutions.

Whatever the change is about, it will be deep and intense because Scorpio won’t be satisfied with skimming the surface. When it comes to relationships, Scorpio is all or nothing. You’re either “in” or you’re “out.” Scorpio will not suffer betrayal or anything less than complete authenticity.

If any person, place, or thing needs to be ejected from your life, now is the time to do it. If a relationship potential is not panning out, it’s time to move on. Any compromises made now will only serve to prolong the hang up.

For committed partners who are facing a rough patch, the information above isn’t a prescription for scuttling the relationship. In your case, the search for new modes, methods and communication techniques can lead you to the innovative solutions mentioned above.

Lynda Hill in her extraordinary book, “360 Degrees of Wisdom, Charting Your Destiny With the Sabian Oracle” offers these keywords as guides:

“Creating one’s vision. Thinking quickly and making momentary decisions. Being prepared to risk failure. Bringing different mixes of things and/or people together. Taking calculated risks to see what will happen. Seeing if things live up to expectations. Looking for answers. . . . Going by one’s gut reactions. . . .”

Use the Mars-Venus conjunction and New Moon energy of Libra (Venus ruled) to experiment. Make some changes. Take some risks. Try new methods of handling old problems. Courageous steps taken now will pay off at the Full Moon on October 22 at 29 Aries, the sign of NEW BEGINNINGS.

Heads up: Venus goes retrograde on October 8 to November 18th. Retrogrades are times when the planet in question doesn’t work at full capacity. All things associated with Venus will work at only half steam for the 40 days the love goddess is in reverse motion.

Things to put off until November 18th

Plastic surgery
Wait to get that make-over
Don’t buy a new wardrobe YET
Don’t get that new hair cut YET
Don’t schedule a bridal shower, engagement party or baby shower or any other big party unless it absolutely must be done in that time frame.
Don’t buy your wedding gown, party dress or other formal attire unless you absolutely have to due to time constraints
Don’t plan any luxury travel because Jupiter of long journeys is also retrograde until November 18
Don’t seek a raise at work or if one is handed out by management, it may not be as high as you hoped
Don’t settle a lawsuit involving a money settlement unless you absolutely have to in that time frame.

All matters that are Venus-ruled are diluted during her retrograde and don’t quite live up to expectation. Especially since gigantic Jupiter is also in backward mode!

The good news: Both Venus and Jupiter will be in direction motion just in time for the holidays!
