The solar eclipse of November 2012 started a rather challenging eclipse phase for many relationships. On a toxic star and with Mercury retrograde square Neptune, it has been causing uncertainty and confusion, jealousy and suspicion. Relationships have been poisoned. Recent moon phases have been evolving the story. This New Moon is where it all gets sorted out.
The green line in the chart from the New Moon to the previous solar eclipse is a quincunx. The aspect of karmic adjustment. It links what is happening in relationships now back to what started late last year. It adds to the urgency, the tension rises and it must be released. This buildup is another factor helping us to resolve the karmic relationships issues.
More karmic tension comes from Saturn retrograde quincunx Uranus. Saturn wants things to keep things the same for security reasons, but Uranus wants to shake things up and head in a new direction. I think the overall chart is saying that the tension can only be resolved by making a new start. For some relationships which have been in trouble over recent month, this new moon gives the chance for a clean break. Venus and Mars with the new moon should make it easier with no hard feelings.
