Late posting ! Mercury Retrograde Shadow ! grrrrrr
A highly transformative new moon will disappear into the infinite night sky on Sunday, Oct. 27 at exactly 11:38 p.m. ET. It doesn’t surprise me one bit that it’s taking place so close to midnight. This Pluto-ruled moon should not be disregarded. Sitting across revolutionary Uranus, the planet of shocking chaos and unexpected surprises, already speaks for itself; however, there are a number of interesting aspects that need to be considered.
Hot-headed Mars — Scorpio’s traditional planetary ruler; planet of assertion, energy, and desire — will be challenged by serious Saturn, but it doesn’t there. In diplomatic Libra, Mars struggles to make decisions, which only gives Saturn — planet of structures, hierarchies, foundations, institutions, and limitations — more power. Saturn will be sitting five degrees away from powerful Pluto — Scorpio’s planetary ruler — which means Mars will be challenged by both Saturn and Pluto, in the ruthless sign of Capricorn.
What does this all mean? Well, in the midst of an unexpected and life-changing new beginning (Scorpio new moon) coming forth, your levels of assertion (Mars in Libra) are being completely blocked off (Saturn-Pluto in Capricorn) by something much greater. This sounds tragic, I know, but that’s Scorpio. However, even malefic planets like Saturn and Pluto have your best interests at heart, so don’t panic. Besides, in the end, Uranus is here to help you break free, remember?
The worst part about this new moon: With go-getter Mars being challenged so intensely by Saturn, Pluto, and even Neptune, you could be feeling more frustrated than usual, given the inability to create peace and harmony in our lives. I say this because Mars in Libra wants to create harmony more than anything, but Saturn and Pluto aren’t going to let you go that easy. However, despite how intimidating or challenging, keep in mind that this isn’t your first rodeo. Both Saturn and Pluto have been restructuring you for quite some time now, so what’s the worst that could happen?
Check which of the astrological houses in your birth chart is governed by Capricorn for more context on this spiritual journey. Everyone has Capricorn somewhere in their birth chart, which means those around you are also dealing with Saturn and Pluto, so keep that in mind. Make sure you’re being gentle with yourself during this time. Surrender to the universe, and don’t be afraid of your spiritual evolution. I am wishing you a beautiful new moon!
