It's Up in the Air

It is undecided. The jury is not in yet. We can still turn it around. We can make better decisions. We can find the solution. We can be better if we have the will.
There are six planets in air in this new Moon Chart—most of them in Libra, an air sign. Libra is the sign of relationships. Venus, the planet of love and imagination, is Libra's agent and emissary. This tells us that being balanced and harmonious with others is largely dependent upon our minds and how we think. We should take a strong hint from Venus that what we think is connected to our imagination. How do you see that person, as an enemy or a friend? We all know that sometimes we trip up and imagine that our friends are enemies, or that our enemies are friends. We imagine other’s motives and intentions and sometimes we are accurate, but if we are experiencing disequilibrium and imbalance, we need to check our image making. The problem is that if we start with an incorrect premise, our deductions will be incorrect.
Libra tells us that everything is related to every other thing. You are related to the person you are at odds with, as well as to the person you love. The good news here is that if you have a problem with someone and you do the changing along the course of wisdom, you will change your relationship.
“If you will release all concern about how others feel about you and focus only upon how you feel about them, you will unearth your core understanding of who you really are, and you will discover what true freedom really is.” – Abraham-Hicks
You know how it is. Sometimes we argue with people in our minds and rehearse our discontent. Mentally, we scold and sometimes berate. We think that this is harmless. We don’t realize that we are sending out thoughts and feelings over the airways.
Sun, Moon, and Mars are all in the 13th degree. Mars adds an energetic dynamic to the New Moon. It can signal the destruction of relationships, or it can signal tearing down the old for the benefit of the new. What if for our new dynamic, we let people off the hook who we are blaming for our unhappiness? What if we said something along the lines of, “Namaste, the divine in me salutes the divine in you.”
We might have to deal with disillusionment at this New Moon, with the feeling that people are not living up to our ideals. Rather than being disappointed, we might let disillusionment serve as the release of false ideas. Rather than hang our heads about what turns out to be false, we can be glad that we are no longer deluded about that.
It does not mean that you have nothing to believe in. Believe in truth. Believe in freedom. Believe in clear air and clarity. Air is transparent and therefore allows the passage of light.
Capricorn is the earth sign that can represent the highest mountain. Aquarius, the next sign, is the clear air at the top of the mountain where we can better commune with the divine, high above the maddening crowd.
To relate, we must use Venus and demonstrate stability, poise, and equilibrium. Do not engage with judgement. Let the scales come to rest.
Venus in the 28th degree of Scorpio, where our desires intensify. It is making lots of
connections in this chart, and remember that the many planets in Libra hearken back to Venus. We can easily be irritated with ourselves and others, but we can also be determined to be different, to give and receive more love. Rosetta Tharpe sang, “Up above my head, I hear music in the air. There must be joy somewhere.”
Change your thoughts and change the results. Got a running argument going on in your head? Modify and/or switch the channel. See the difference your different thoughts make. I remember when I was trying to come up with something to say to someone who I thought wasn’t treating me right. The inner voice showed me that I was the one messing up the atmosphere with my inner discontent that wasn’t even related to the person I thought misunderstood and mistreated me. The inner instruction was to say nothing, but to maintain my own equilibrium. I found that I never had to make that corrective speech.
