The Dark Moon in Libra is naturally a time to re-balance – to let go (the Dark Moon Protocol is to always relinquish our grip on some things, attitudes or people) and thus regain our (Moon in Libra this time) equilibrium. The word “equilibrium” gives birth to Libra which literally means ‘the scales’ or two pans, if you like. But when Uranus is in opposition to the Sun and Moon, the process is more likely to be sudden onset and weird.
But really, how many of us DO attain or maintain balance via some elegant process? Of course, it is the ideal that we graciously calibrate on a consistent basis, smoothly recognizing where we might be giving some problem far more than its fair due, over-eating or weighting one relationship inappropriately over another. Time, money and food are a permanent nexus of balance and re-balance. Usually, however, it is a kind vehement sudden onset ‘what-the-fuq the scales are tilted so far they are practically perpendicular’ moment.
In our bodies, some tiny instance of the wrong muscle being recruited leads to a compensatory movement pattern can lead to a massive imbalance over time and then that causes some obvious issue, previously imperceptible. In our psyches and lives it is probably correct that the exact same dynamic can happen. And it’s New Moons like this (that feel more like a Full Moon because of the Uranus effect) where the load balancing and compensatory mechanisms become apparent. Re-balancing shifts can seem spontaneous or impulsive – possibly destabilizing to some people in our lives for whom the imbalance works – but they’re usually the end result of a long chain of reaction.
Jupiter in Libra for the last year has gone a long way toward making many of us more aware of this process and of course, there is a whole generation with Pluto In Libra (1971 to 1984) who have this energy hardwired into their astral DNA.
