"The reading was a partnership between the two of us; she did not simply recite planetary signs and meanings, but had a conversation with me, continually asking what I made of what she saw, and what I thought I could do to change the things I want to change.

When the names of other people in my life came up, she quickly looked up their charts on her computer and commented on their roles in my life -- painting a fuller picture of where I was, where I wanted to go, and how I could get there.

What was impressive was that Elisabeth took all the planets, people, and situations that made up my life and created a context for them all that was positive, hopeful, and exciting!

She has a lovely personality, a sharp wit, and a gift for astrological interpretation."

Astro-logical Forecast for Thursday 10/7/2010

If you want to know where you’re at, look at whom you’re with. You can quote me on that for the next four-six weeks, assuming the grammar is correct (the downside of life without an editor). But seriously folks, the Sabian Symbol for the New Moon in Libra at 2:44PM NY/11:44AM LA today is “”circular paths; coming to terms with the inevitability of establishing steady rhythms of social activity” — or rather,  “what goes around comes around”.

Libra is the sign of partnerships; marriage is an obvious partnership; some business relationships are partnerships, including adversarial ones. We went through the first half of the zodiac with New Moons focusing on the Self: Aries = my identity; Taurus = my values/possessions; Gemini = my mind; Cancer = my emotions/family; Leo = my love to give; Virgo = my service/work/body. Now we’re ready to go public. Take a look at your relationships: how are We doing? What is the State of the Union?  How does it reflect the Libran qualities of justice, fairness, diplomacy, peace, beauty and sweetness? Is there resentment or a lack of appreciation? Are there issues hanging in the balance (Libra is the sign of the Scales)?

The planetary patterns suggest this is an excellent time for serious and constructive focus on relationships of all kinds — interpersonal, international, interracial, inter (fill in the blank). Use a bit of creative visualization in your New Moon meditation  — and if you’re not a meditating type, grab a pen and paper and make a list of partnership objectives for the next few months.  If there’s anything/anyone on that list that you already have, make time to express your appreciation — and find ways to make it even more beautiful. Libra NEEDS beauty and appreciation for being valuable in relationship; by extension, our relationships need beauty and appreciation, too.

In other news, the horoscope of the United States is especially affected by this New Moon, which is exactly conjunct the US Saturn. There is a possibility — a possibility, mind you — that our fearless leaders will behave more response-ably over the next month and put forth a more substantive agenda on issues affecting our shared resources, mindsets and relationships at home and abroad. After all, there is an election during this cycle….let’s watch the headlines and see what happens.

Tomorrow I’ll write about Venus turning retrograde and how this will likely add to the intensity of this New Moon’s focus on relationships.

Astro-logical Forecast for Wednesday 9/8/2010

Recall that last month’s New Moon was in Leo and the suggestion was to focus on authentic creative self-expression. This month’s New Moon happens today at 6:30AM NY/3:30 AM LA at 15 degrees of Virgo. Keywords for Virgo include: perfection, discernment, work, service, analysis. Whom or what does your creative self-expression serve? How does it work?

Virgo also rules the digestive tract, where it keeps busy instinctively separating the wheat from the chaff. It keeps elements that provide nourishment and eliminates those which do not. Some digestive systems work more efficiently than others, depending on what they are given to process. What is your process? Is it efficient?

Virgo, an Earth sign, is ruled by airy, mental Mercury…but I suspect that’s only because the true ruler of Virgo has yet to make an appearance. What does a planet that’s airy and mental have to do with “gut instinct”, which sounds so earthy and primal? That was my question when reading about the Sabian Symbol for this Virgo New Moon: “In the zoo, children are brought face to face with an orangutan”. Astrologer Blain Bovee helpfully tells us in his book on Sabian Symbols that “orangutan” means “wild man”, and that one of the origins of the word “orange” is “aur”, which means “gold”. Hmmm….this “wild man” that likely runs on “gut instinct” just might be a treasure…

This month, when faced with goals and other challenges, consider going with your gut. Let it lead to you to work and service that nourishes you….and gives you hints about what needs to be eliminated that’s interfering with your process. Your gut already knows what to do…imagine that!

In other news, today loving Venus moves into Scorpio. Let’s manifest depth and passion in our relationships, instead of the shrewish alternative, “If I be waspish, best beware my sting”.   : )
