The cardinal sign, the air of Libra is the one that hosts the moment of the New Moon of Friday, October 16, 2020 marking for each new ideals concreted by a new beginning, new projects, thoughts and ideas centered on the idea of peace, harmony, balance, love and relationships.

Even if the New Moon signifies the "samanta" that we are currently planting, through the thoughts and projects we do, the things that we have not completed in the previous cycle or emotional problems can influence for better or for worse, the new cycle. In this case, the new cycle could have the express role of solving unfinished things.

It's time to be present, to project positively, to trust and to start those actions that we really find ourselves in.

The detoxification capacity of the body is maximum on the day of the New Moon

Anyone who makes a rule of having a fasting day every time the Moon is New will benefit from many advantages in preventing ailments. Also this day is perfect to start a new activity such as the unlearning of bad habits. Often bad habits are the outward expression of inner energies that need only a new goal to become useful and valuable to us and to other people.

The night before the New Moon is a night of divine transcendence

and if we engage in spiritual activities we can achieve exceptional results that equate to the results obtained after a year of assiduous spiritual practice.

In order for this new beginning to "establish" better in our being and to make the most of this astrological aspect it is advisable to perform a short meditation of about 20 minutes, in its maximum period, 10 minutes before and 10 minutes after it takes place, i.e. between 22:21 and 22:41.

How we meditate:

Sitting on a chair with your back straight and your hands resting on your thighs with your palms down, we aim to completely relax our body, especially the muscles of our face.

It is necessary to feel the physical body abandoned and immobile. After we've done the "parking" of the body, we turn our attention inside the body, into the middle of the chest, and imagine that we're adimensional at that level.

Throughout meditation, we aim to feel the complex influence of this astral moment, of the New Moon, when the luminaries, the Sun and the Moon participate in the "cosmic wedding", by dividing the same zodicacal degree. Now the male and the female merge into a perfect unit.

Shiva Ratri

The night that precedes this phenomenon of the New Moon, in our case the night from 15 to 16 October 2020, is celebrated in the Eastern spiritual tradition under the name Shiva Ratri.

During this astral moment, it is good to have an easy diet or even to practice Anaharin – black fasting only with water, to reduce the rhythm of daily activities, and to aim to orient ourselves inwards, being aware that this night is particularly effective for the practice of meditation, it gives us the opportunity to achieve thus important spiritual progress.

Due to the conjunction between the Sun and the Moon there is a special complementarity of yin-yang energies in nature

If we now seek to find a perfect agreement between our will and God's will, our consciousness will go through exceptional spiritual transformations that will lead to the acquisition of the state of harmony and inner peace.

Through the state of consciousness cultivated by various Abheda Yoga techniques, certain unfavorable astrological transits can be transcensed. Apart from these methods to be practiced systematically, it can be said that the destiny of men is written in the stars and it is relatively difficult for the ordinary man to manifest free will, independent of the influences of celestial bodies.

Specific astrological aspects

Friday, October 16, 2020 – 22:31 – marks the moment of the New Moon in Libra by the perfect conjunction between the Moon and the Sun in Libra at the 23:53 degree, diamizing the V house of this astral moment, namely the house of love, children and creativity.

A New Moon in Libra amplifies our desire for balance and harmony in our relationships, the need for justice and fairness in our actions, facilitates our understanding and collaboration with both the life partner and the world in general, directs our gaze towards beauty, towards art, towards the contemplation of Divine beauty in all its forms of manifestation on earth. Libra is the symbol of peace governing engagements, promises, signatures, unions, agreements, processes and in general all business dealings in connection with laws; is a cardinal sign of air that is in the service of harmony and opposing forces, which it will constantly strive to reconcile.

That area of life occupied by the sign of Libra in the native map,that will be the place where we will constantly seek a balance

where we will strive to be fair and righteous in actions, to seek beauty and harmony, to be messengers of peace, to bring understanding and to be the best diplomats.

By accessing the energy of this sign in a harmonious way, we will go deeper, looking for true beauty, the inner one,we will manifest affection and genuine care for the good of the other, controlled emotionality, personal charm and charisma, we will enjoy the presence of people in our life, with which we will try to collaborate and communicate in a more harmonious way. The need for artistic and aesthetic expression, contemplation, thoughtfulness, eroticism, beauty and body harmony will manifest itself in a clear way.

When we still manifest this energy of Libra in a disharmonious way

will put a lot of value on the appearance, judging people by what they seem and not by what they are, great efforts will be made to maintain the physical appearance due to an excessive identification with the formal appearance. It will tend towards accepting even the most undesirable compromises of the desire to be liked, admired or accepted by the other, influenceability and indecision, easily corrupt edify and lack of verticality, dependence on external appreciations and extreme concern towards the social, public image.

House V a is the one hosting the New Moon

is a house representative of love and romance, children and creativity, pregnancy, education and pedagogy, procreation and conception, pleasure, art and all forms of entertainment. It is a house of love and creation, being the home of the heart. All these aspects will now be in the sights of astral energies, all our relationships of love, relationships with our children, our ability to be good teachers or educators, relationship with our own creativity and with our inner child,but also the relationship with our free time and activities related to this free time.

This New Moon in Libra in House V comes to remind us of our "heart"

how authentic we are in our intentions as to how we manifest our love, asks us if there is a balance between our needs and those we love, whether there is peace in our heart and whether we know how to be its bearers in relations with those around us. We are also reminded of the willingness we have to enjoy each other and to perceive the "beautiful" around us, to see beyond the appearance; we are invited to be aware how connected we are to the child in our being, if we love and accept ourselves as we are or are slaves to the opinions and approvalof others; we are reminded that through every action we allow ourselves to create, we become creators ourselves and the love we give can be the most wonderful expression of our creativity.

The test of this house is the ability to act of the most intimate nature, in terms of the purity of reason, using in a pure manner all available means. To be pure means to carry out in a perfect and exclusive dharma, Bhagavad Gita adding "without any personal concern to the fruits of the action", because such a concern would indicate egotistical involvement in the way the action will be passed on to its author.

Astrological Houses – Dane Rudhyar

How authentic are we in our desire for love and in our creation? How much purity is there in our permanent need for peace and harmony?

are questions to which this New Moon can help us find answers if our truly sincere and authentic search.

This desire to probe in the depth of our heart and implicitly our capacity to love will be tested

and hampered by the opposition aspect that the New Moon receives from Mars retrograde in Aries. We will not access the state of true peace if we let ourselves engage in conflicts and struggles to regain the respect and recognition we need, we will not feel more harmony or balance if we give way to past frustrations and grievances that now seem to all come out, in that sector where we have it on retrograde Mars. On the contrary, this opposition can consume us more than is the case and now the most important thing is to keep our energy, because we are prone to large losses of energy in record time and not in a constructive way. The outward manifestations do not have the fate of success at the moment because any attempt to resolve the conflict dresses the coat of aggression and uncontrolled anger generating effects that we do not really want. We can instead look for the inner manifestation of this opposition,we can there work with it and see what is the real cause behind our aggression. We can turn to working on Anahata Chakra, to open ourselves to true love and acceptance, to exercises to calm the mind and to amplify the capacity of detachment and last but not least we can practice any asana that energizes and amplifies the connection with our inner "sun".

Another tense aspect that targets the New Moon is the which comes from Saturn's conjunction with Pluto in Capricorn, the constraints and limitations to which we are subjected are extremely old and powerful and push us towards a rather harsh confrontation with reality, which we will now strive to change.

We must be prepared to pay the price of the changes we want in our lives.

and this aspect will not make this moment easier for us because it will tend to make visible to us that our shoulders, which we wore long ago but which we now want to give up, only that giving up will require death and rebirth (Pluton) and an unshakeable assumption in working with our own karma (Saturn). We can invoke that Divine justice be manifested and sustain us only that we will have to be prepared for the Truth we can receive.

A difficult task now rests with the domain marked by the Libra sign in our map to transcend its limits, of liberation from the past, of "powerlessness" as from a prison, of facing one's own fears and fears of relational, contractual, or related to creation, love, children.

The lesson of this New Moon is

a lesson in discovering true harmony and inner peace, at the cost of confronting our own inner war, revealing the beauty and balance in our heart and from the outside, being prepared to move from form to essence, reconnecting to our inner child with the purest and most authentic love and acceptance, aware that we can love the other as we have for ourselves , connection with our own uniqueness and originality manifested by our creative power, constantly reminding us that He who creates through us is God.

"Those who do not feel love as a torrent, who do not drink the dawn as a cup of tea, or who do not make their treasure in a sunset, those who do not want to wake up, those who let them sleep."
