New Moon in Scorpio – Nov. 04, 2021, 21:14 UT

The New Moon is in conjunction with Mbabamwanawaresa in Scorpio and opposite Uranus in Taurus. Mbabamwanawaresa is a minor body named after the Zulu goddess Mbaba Mwana Waresa, who has power over water and earth, and who is called on when guidance is needed to make an important decision.

New Moon in Scorpio
Twenty-five thousand people from 200 countries and around 120 heads of state are attending the 2021 United Nations climate change conference, the COP26 summit, held between Oct. 31 and Nov. 12, 2021, in Glasgow, UK. Efficient decisions need to be made in order to bring climate change under control.

184314 Mbabamwanawaresa is a trans-Neptunian object, a cubewano discovered in 2005 by an American astronomer Marc W. Buie. It revolves around the Sun in 302 years and its mean diameter is approximately 242 km. Mbaba Mwana Waresa is a fertility goddess of the Zulu religion of Southern Africa. She rules over rainbows, agriculture, harvests, rain, and beer and has power over water and earth. She taught her people how to sow and reap and also the art of making beer. The Zulu call on her when they need guidance to make an important decision.

In its discovery chart (March 11, 2005, 09:02:47 UT, Kitt Peak, AZ), Mbabamwanawaresa is in conjunction with Jupiter in Libra at the 10th house cusp, the Midheaven. The Midheaven is the highest point of the chart, “the public point”, and Mbabamwanawaresa there is making itself known. Jupiter magnifies it. The Sagittarius ascendant, ruled by Jupiter, is in tight conjunction with the Galactic Centre. Pluto, the great transformer and the symbol of rebirth, is rising near the ascendant. All the billions of planetary systems in the Milky Way galaxy, including our own solar system, are circulating around the Galactic Centre. On the geocentric astrological chart the Galactic Centre is currently in late Sagittarius. There is a supermassive black hole and an astronomical radio source in the center. Symbolically it is an enormous creative source for the whole planet.

The United Nations climate change conferences are held yearly to reduce the greenhouse gas emissions from human activities and tackle climate change. The conferences have been criticized a lot for the lack of significant political action. For instance, activist Greta Thunberg (Mbabamwanawaresa = Jupiter / Pluto) said: “The leaders will say ‘we’ll do this and we’ll do this, and we will put our forces together and achieve this’, and then they will do nothing.”

The chart for the opening ceremony of the 2021 conference, which took place on Nov. 1 at midday (12:00 UT) in Glasgow, is another chart with Mbabamwanawaresa at the Midheaven and the Galactic Centre at the ascendant. The Scorpio Sun is in conjunction with Mbabamwanawaresa and right at the Midheaven. The leaders of the world are in the spotlight and they want to be remembered as saviors of the Earth. Perhaps they will be, if they make wise decisions and also carry them out in practice. In this chart Venus, the symbol of values, is rising conjunct the Galactic Centre. A yod pattern was formed by Chiron (the wound, healing, and awareness) in Aries, Ceres (Mother Earth) in Gemini, and the Sun conjunct the Midheaven in Scorpio. The yod consist of two quincunxes and a sextile. The key principle of the quincunx aspect is “moving into a new situation,” according to astrologer Bernadette Brady. Perhaps in honor of the conference venue, Albion (the ancient and mythological name of Britain) was conjunct Uranus in Taurus and opposite Mbabamwanawaresa in Scorpio.

There are three important cornerstones in the history of dealing with climate change: the Earth Summit held in Rio de Janeiro in 1992; the Kyoto Protocol, which was adopted in 1997 and entered into force in 2005; and the Paris Agreement in 2015. Mbabamwanawaresa is prominent in all three.

The Rio de Janeiro Earth Summit was held from June 3 to June 14, 1992. The United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) is “the mother” of all later agreements on climate change. It was drafted on May 9, 1992, signed by 154 states at the conference, and entered into force on March 21, 1994. In the charts cast for May 9 and June 3, 1992, Mbabamwanawaresa is in the first degree of Libra square the nodes of the Moon. Libra is one of the cardinal signs, and the first degrees of the cardinal signs are related to the Aries Point, which joins individuals with the collective. When the agreement came into force in 1994, the Sun was at the Aries Point conjunct Pallas, the strategist, and opposite Mbabamwanawaresa in early Libra.

The Kyoto Protocol was the world’s first legally binding treaty to reduce greenhouse emissions. It was adopted in Japan on Dec. 11, 1997, and entered into force on Feb. 16, 2005. Mbabamwanawaresa was discovered in the next month. In the chart for Feb. 16, 2005, Mbabamwanawaresa is in tight conjunction with Jupiter in Libra and forming a t-square with Eris in Aries and Saturn in Cancer.

The 2015 United Nations Climate Change Conference was held in Paris, France, from Nov. 30 to Dec. 12, 2015. The Paris Agreement’s goal is to limit global warming to well below 2º C compared to pre-industrial levels, and preferably limit the increase to 1.5º C. Emissions should be reduced as soon as possible and reach “net-zero” by the middle of the 21st century. The Paris agreement was signed on Apr. 22, 2016, when the Sun in early Taurus was opposite Mbabamwanawaresa in Scorpio.

Sir David Attenborough (Mbabamwanawaresa at the North node of the Moon), one of the most respected naturalists in the world, delivered an awesome speech during the opening ceremony in Glasgow. “We are already in trouble,” he warned. “The civility we all depend on is breaking. Is this how our story is due to end?” He continued: “A tale of the smartest species doomed by that all too human characteristic of failing to see the bigger picture in pursuit of short-term goals. If working apart we are a force powerful enough to destabilize our planet, surely working together we are powerful enough to save it.”
