September 2011 Libra Edition

Transpluto Persephone Changes Sign
Astronomers have estimated the size, location and orbit of the transplutonian planet Valerie Vaughan calls Persephone. From this information the monthly positions of this unknown planet in the zodiac have been calculated. Because of its great distance from the Sun it spends many decades in one zodiac sign.
Persephone has been in the sign of Leo since 1937. It is estimated that it will leave Leo and move into the sign of Virgo this November. This once-in-a-lifetime event is noteworthy and deserves our consideration and reflection.
In Leo, Persephone has been “acting out” her needs for self-expression, self-mastery, and development of her own identity separate from her mother. In her process of becoming an individual, of finding her own ego-self, authority and power, she experienced the pain of separation from her mother and ventured into the Underworld, assuming her role as Queen of the Dead. Here she learned compassion for those souls and gave them comfort and hope.
Has humanity matured into a wiser, more evolved stage since the onset of the Plutonian age of the atom bomb and nuclear war in the 1930s? Have we transcended our ego needs? Do we now have enough respect for the destructive power nuclear weapons have to annihilate not only humanity but life on earth? How can we move our relationship with this atomic force to a higher and more mature level?
What will the next era of Persephone in Virgo bring for humanity? In Virgo, we might expect to experience the pain of separation from others due to ecological disasters, environmental pollution and health epidemics. In her highest expression in Virgo, Persephone will use her relationships to be of greater service to others, help improve their conditions, and to heal the planet.
The cardinal signs correspond to seasonal transitions. In the northern hemisphere Libra marks the beginning of fall, the end of the growing season and the beginning of the “dying” season. Day and night are equally balanced for a brief while. We leave the long, languid days of summer behind and prepare for the colder, harsher winter ahead. This is the time of year when Persephone leaves her mother’s world where she has been helping tend the crops and harvest the grain, and prepares to return to the underworld to fulfill her role as wife and Queen of Hades.
Like Persephone, it is fitting that we use this time to prepare to make a transition ourselves, from our outer conscious awareness of the world to a deeper, darker, internal place. Just as Persephone, in the spring we will emerge from our time spent in the depths with greater self-awareness and the seeds of renewal for rejuvenating our life.
THE MONTH AHEAD
As the Sun moves into Libra Friday it conjoins Mercury in Virgo, opposes Uranus in Aries, and squares Pluto in Capricorn. Our personal energy and vitality will be focused on relationships, how we compromise, negotiate and meet the needs of others in balanced ways. Communicate with practical realism and strive to fix problems and heal your relationships where needed. Any urges to break out of conventional roles in order to express your unique self will need to be balanced with awareness and sensitivity towards others. We may feel pressured to make hard decisions, to be held accountable, and to eliminate anything superfluous that previously gave us material security as we work towards justice and fairness for all.
SATURN IN LIBRA
As the Sun moves through Libra this month it will conjoin Saturn, illuminating ways we can take more responsibility for improving our relationships. Respect yourself and be mature. Have integrity and do the right thing. Be diplomatic and cooperate with others.
Saturn continues its two year transit of the sign of Libra until October 2012. This cycle is a time to organize and structure our lives in more balanced ways. Saturn asks us to take responsibility for creating fairness and harmony in our personal relationships. Can you be fair to yourself as well as to others? How can you use negotiation and compromise wisely?
NEW MOON IN LIBRA
A New Moon occurs when the Sun and the Moon conjoin overhead from our perspective on Earth. This represents the fusion of our outer consciousness and awareness, symbolized by the Sun, with our inner emotional and unconscious self, symbolized by the Moon. This is a fertile time for new beginnings, for sowing the seeds of your new projects and endeavors.
The next New Moon will occur on Tuesday September 27 at 4:09 a.m. (PDT). This New Moon will be at 4 degrees Libra, conjoining Mercury. This is a new opportunity to communicate harmoniously and share thoughts and ideas with others with fairness and refinement. Listen to the needs and concerns of others with consideration. Use compromise to balance your needs and desires with those of others.
The area of your astrological chart where 4 degrees Libra falls represents the area of your life where you can consciously create new beginnings that are relational, balanced and harmonious. Set aside time to reflect on how you can create new ways to relate to others, balance seemingly conflicting needs, and experience self-transformation. What do your relationships tell you about yourself? How can you better understand the reflections others show you? Where can you cooperate with others? How can you inspire and aid others in their self growth?
You may wish to set some new goals or create some Libra affirmations on September 27th. Examples are: “I balance my needs with the needs of others in cooperation and fairness.” “I honor and respect my soul contracts with others.” “I create beauty and harmony in my interactions with others.” “I transform myself through my relationships.”
