The Cosmic Story: The Libra New Moon

Imagining a Balanced World

The chaos and disruption of 'regular' life in America has never been so great in my lifetime. Even the 60s didn't feel this tumultuous, but then again, I was in my teens and I can't vouch for how my parents experienced it. What I felt was excitement from the music, the culture, the protests. It was our first wakeup call to an exciting new vision of unity and love (the very promise of Christianity), Now as an elder, I see what makes this chaos different -- it's the despair in people's heart and minds about surviving and thriving. But that earlier vision of living an awakened life has also taken root in places all over the world and now it's time to strengthen that vision deep within our collective psyche. Our whole culture -- our whole world -- has to unite and heal Mother Earth. Until we do unite, our leaders will continue to play at war and power and greed.

We unite by stepping forward.

The hippies grew up in a time of peace and prosperity after WWII and stepped into an adventure as they went out into the world and found their new tribes. This was the birth phase of the Uranus-Pluto cycle that began in 1965-66. We've just undergone 3 years (2012-2015) and 7 squares between these planets of awakening and transformation and our journey is different. Our task is to make those ideals that our country was founded on a reality. The only way to do it is through an awakened citizenry. Perhaps if Americans actually work together on our problems, coming from opposite sides but willing to negotiate, the US would make more progress with its diplomacy. How can we tell other countries how to behave if we do not live up to our own ideals?

We can't until we ARE a true example of democracy and peace. And that's where an engaged and enlightened citizenry comes in. Each of us has to engage in our world. Wherever we see a need, if we're balanced we can step in and help re-assert the proper balance.

" As Above, So Below. As Within, So Without." Come into balance yourself and that vibration will extend out into your family, work and community.

The Sabian symbol for the Sun and Moon at 27* Libra is: An airplane sails, high in the clear sky. Dane Rudhyar 1 states that this symbolizes "a consciousness able to transcend the conflicts and pressures of the personal life." This symbol evokes our ability to take an objective view of ourselves and the world , looking at our lives from a higher perspective, creating unity within the polarity. This is the alchemical 'union of opposites' which gives rise to the Self. The original union of opposites was and still is the union of feminine and masculine energies. We need and deserve equality between the sexes, but we also have to learn to give equal value to both types of consciousness -- our feminine imaginal brain and our masculine rational brain. The y each have a different function, and when they work together, they create brilliance! This is what has put our culture out of balance -- the fact that our feminine wisdom is disregarded, used and abused. But this New Moon in Libra can change all of that.
