The new moon is a time of beginnings and opportunities. This is a time of manifestation, making choices, making plans. Jan Spiller published a book, New Moon Astrology, which is one of a few books I keep close. I recommend getting a copy, if you don’t already own it. I also recommend you go to Jan’s website to calculate your Grandaddy Power Period. This period is unique to each person’s chart, based on when the Sun is transiting the 11th House of your birth chart. The 11th is the house of Karma. Follow her suggestion and use this as your first wish, “I want to easily cut through any fears or negativity that may arise in the month following my Power Period, and emerge with flying colors.” This truly will help ease your mind when the powerful changes start happening.
Neptune and Uranus Retrogrades
Neptune (turns direct November 19th) and Uranus (turns direct December 29th) are in retrograde right now. Introspection is key. If you look within and don’t like what you see, write it down. Read what you’ve written and see if there’s something you can realistically change for the better. Then meditate on that change for a while. The upcoming holidays are very likely to stretch us and push us to change in ways that might feel more like a challenge than an invitation. Remember, the New Moon reboots us. Let it work its magic and show us what needs to change for the better. Let go of your preconceptions, and allow some of that fresh energy to work during these retrograde days.
What to do
You have until Saturday morning at 3:13 AM (Central) to write down 2 – 10 wishes by hand. Write them simply and in plain language. Let your intuition guide you, not logic. Wish what you mean, not what you think you should, not what you aren’t sure about. Date and keep what you write (I use sticky notes in a paper calendar). Don’t waste your wishes on other people, they are yours and yours alone, and they should never be used to influence the will of anyone else.
Once you have written down your 2 – 10 wishes, let the Universe have them. If you notice new opportunities, take them. They are the gift you asked for. Change can be a little difficult, especially if you’re afraid or don’t believe you can have what you want. Try your best to remain calm and believe this can be yours. I write to get myself through fearful or uncomfortable times. If you’re not good with words, draw, dance, sing, get out in nature, whatever you need to do.
What’s special about a moon in Libra?
The moon in Libra makes us desire harmony and balance. Wishes you might want to think about involve partnership, negotiation, peace, cooperation, tact, diplomacy, elegance, indecision, and health issues related to adrenal glands and the kidneys. Take a few deep breaths before you sit down with your wishes. This will keep you balanced.
September is the time for delicious sweet potatoes. Roast them and enjoy them with a little salt, pepper, and butter. If you’re the pumpkin spice fiend, sprinkle a little on a roasted sweet potato. It’s full of beta carotene, and yummy goodness! Blessings on your journey.
