Cardinal signs are on the angles, indicating an immediate forward movement...the Cardinal T-Square with Pluto at the IC squaring both Sun, Moon and Uranus - the latter three planets in opposition - signals an immediate rough row to hoe.

The first New Moon after the Autumn Equinox falls in Libra.  Of this sign the astrologer/poet Manilius, in his epic Astronomica says: 

"Day and night are weighed in Libra's scales
  Equal awhile, at last the night prevails."

Posited on the 1st house cusp, the New Moon affects both 12th and 1st houses...the long suffering people will now do more than rant and rave.  When the reason and foresight for which Libra is known is negatively impacted - as it is by Uranus and Pluto in this chart - then we can expect rational thinking to go missing and the judgment for which Libra is also known to step up to the plate and turn its ire on those in power.

Of the New Moon on the 5th degree of Libra, astrologer Adriano Carelli states the symbol to be "An albatross with glaring red beak and claws."  He goes on to say:  "A winged, impulsive, enthusiastic nature full of lofty aspirations but impatient to see its dreams realized and chafing at obstacles.  Hence a tendency to impose one's will violently without an adequate psychological approach, overlooking and skipping the logical proofs of one's conviction and neglecting the cogent force of one's arguments.  This exuberance may give rise even to physical dangers; the native will have to check his gestures as well as his actions if he is to avoid harm from iron and fire, without, however, using violence to his own nature."

Pluto inconjunct 10th house Mars speaks to the financial stress (both planets ruling the 2nd house) being forced upon the public by an administration whose attitude about their suffering is rather wit:  The presidential dog is flown on a private jet to vacation in Maine...the president uses AF 1 to fly to New York City for "date night," estimated expense to the public over $240,000...first lady and 40 of her friends fly to Spain with accommodations costing approximately $2,500 a night x 60 rooms for a week of fun...and the frivolous squandering of U.S. tax dollars continues, while these big spenders of money not theirs ignore the suffering of the American public.

A motivating impulse is a 1st house matter and one must wonder if the lights are shining in this area at this time to wake up the citizens to the ruination of the average person's ability to provide for themselves, forcing them to become surfs to a government that will now provide just enough welfare for subsistence living.

I said to my soul, be still, and let the dark come upon you
Which shall be the darkness of God.  As, in a theatre,
The lights are extinguished for the scene to be changed.
With a hollow rumble of wings, with a movement of darkness on darkness,
And we know that the hills and the trees, the distant panorama
And the bold and imposing facade are all being rolled away---

East Coker by T.S. Eliot
