New Moon Oct. 2011

New Moon Oct. 2011

This month's New Moon occurs on October 27, 2011, 4:56 am JST (all the timing in this article is to be calculated in JST) at the 4th degree of Scorpio. And this month, the Full Moon occurs with Taurus Moon opposing the Scorpio Sun, so we had better be aware of the themes of Earth-Water polarity. Both signs belong to feminine signs and are oriented toward preserving status quo and get the best out of it. But both also belong to fixed signs so the pace of development might be slow and steady. Imagining the Moon as a container and the Sun as energy to fill it, we have Scorpio's strong focusing energy to fulfill collective urge of the container that needs to keep things as they should be during this Moon month (especially around the Full Moon). It is not constructive if you get too emotionally demanding against preserving-material-security atmosphere that everyone has in general. Let's see what's going on in the world with these points of view in mind for this Moon month.

Aspects to the Sun

After coming into Scorpio until this New Moon, the Sun has not touched any planet. And then right after the New Moon, the Sun will make contact with Jupiter and Pluto on 10/29. Leadership might make clear strong vision and perspective for the future around this time.

Then the Sun will touch Neptune on 11/21 and then touch Uranus on 11/23. Some of the things suggested are that leader might be misunderstood or given wrong image when Neptune influence is strong. And when Uranus influence is strong, leadership will make clear his/her direction or image. So at any rate, around this period, the leader's image is to be on various people's mind to be further discussed and understood. Or leadership him/herself would come up with some unique idea to cope with current issues.

Aspects among the rest of the planets

There is an important aspect to note among outer planets for this Moon month. It is Jupiter-Pluto trine on 10/29. For several months centered around this timing, the themes of circulation of society changing philosophy, extreme exploration for the future or propagandistic persuasion, etc might be emphasized.

The first inner planet to look at is Mars, which touched Saturn on 10/26 right before the New Moon. And right after the New Moon, the planet of action touches Venus and Mercury, bringing ideal ideas to action (with some argument or conflict). Then Mars proceeds to make contact with Neptune (11/7), Jupiter (11/17) and Pluto (11/23). What has begun in idealistic individual movement of small group of people might be brought up to large scale social movement, especially under the influence of Jupiter-Pluto.

Next let's look at what Venus is up to. At the same time as the Mercury touches Mars to actualize idealistic ideas, Venus touches Mars on 10/26. Venus correlates to individual values and cooperations, so at this time, Venus will back up the idealistic plan in value-wise and cooperation-wise. Venus with Mercury touches Neptune and Uranus on 11/1 and 11/3 so the idealistic idea will be given chances to touch collective feelings and communications. On 11/22, Venus makes harmonious contact with Saturn so some kind of organizational cooperation might be formed arround this timing.

So next, we talk about the communication department Mercury. Important movements of Mercury this month are accumulated in the first section of this Moon month and with Venus. So all the timings are specified in Venus section. From the general point, it seems that Venus and Mercury are cooperating to make idealistic plans which might appeal to collective feeling, but then the Mercury will go retrograde to ferment those ideas further. It is interesting to note that a little before Mercury gets back to direct motion in mid December, Uranus will come back to direct as well, which will be the next month's topic.

Planets which change direction or sign

Planets other than Sun and Moon sometimes change their direction of apparent movement seen from the earth. When a planet changes its direction, it moves slowly and may leave its mark on various social events in the world. Within this Moon month, Neptune and Mercury changes their directions on 11/10 and 11/24 respectively. Neptune will go forward from that date, so dreams and ideals fermented within individuals are to be ready to be shared. When Mercury is retrograding, it is better to think about oneself and confirm one's own value, position or way of judgement. Spirit of cooperation is important, but sometimes we have to think about our own pure needs by each. Thus when Mercury gets back to direct motion, society can share individual value and way of thinking.

And planets, especially those that move slowly, change their signs in sync with shifts in corresponding profile of social or collective psychology. Within this Moon month, a planet which change its sign, among the planets which travel slower than the earth, is Mars which moves from Leo into Virgo. Mars corresponds to our way to act out and spend energy, which has been focused on expressing individual character and dignity, and directed to differentiating details and serving to others and immediate situations.

During this Moon month, keeping the points I have raised above, let's try to use our Scorpio Sun's controlled and focused energy to mix nicely with clinging-to-idealized-value needs of Taurus Moon of this month. Understanding each other's value become the key in deep cooperation. It should be interesting to observe those symbols reflected in the real socio-situations in the world.
