On October 6th, we have the balanced and equilibrium enhancing New Moon at 13 degrees of Libra. New Moons always come after a time of uneasiness and an unsettling energy of feeling drained. Right before the moon becomes a new, the dark moon creates these feelings of propensity as we are naturally governed by the moon’s energy. With no moonlight to guide our sensitive souls, we can feel empty and listless. The New Moon is a welcome sight and promises a new cycle of promise, beginnings and the slate being wiped clean. Libra, the 7th zodiac sign is known for balance, harmony, relationships, contracts and commitments.
The New Moon in Libra is here to restore our sense of peace + balance in a time of anything but that in our current circumstances. There is a softness and understanding of our differences that wants to be expressed and experienced during this next lunar cycle. Libra is the great judge, diplomat and lawyer of the zodiac. This sign can see both sides with such clarity and wisdom that it often drives others crazy. They can literally go back and forth + back and forth and go back and forth yet again with such ease that sometimes they forget which side they originally stood on. It is this ability to honor both sides of a situation, argument and discussion that makes them excellent negotiators and mediators. No other sign has this talent quite like the fair-minded Libra.
This New Moon in Libra wants to create a brand new awareness of your relationship patterns and sense of grace and style. Being ruled by the planet Venus, which represents love, pleasure, beauty and harmony, there is an opportunity to create such balance and unity during these next 2 weeks. Wherever 13 degrees of Libra falls in your natal chart is where such issues of equality, unity and peace of mind will become prominent. In fact, this New Moon will be most potent to anyone with prominent Cardinal sign energy, which includes the signs of: Aries, Cancer, Libra and Capricorn( especially if these placements fall between 10-16 degrees). If your Sun, Moon, Ascendant or other angles( IC, DC and MC) fall within these mentioned degrees/signs then the loving and supportive energy of this New Moon will be felt very strongly. Even if you don’t have those particular planets or points within those signs/degrees, there will still be an emphasis around creating healthy and equally giving partnerships. If you have noticed that your current relationships aren’t incorporating such qualities then there will be work to be done on compromising and communicating one’s desires and wishes.
Another interesting occurrence with this New Moon in Libra will be its conjunction to Mars, the planet of aggression, action, passion and assertion, who is also in Libra. Why this conjunction is so interesting is Mars has just become visible in the sky again, and is now in a new 2 year cycle. When a planet is invisible, it often goes quite dormant and lacks the ability to make its presence known and felt. Mars takes 2 years to go through the entire zodiac, so whenever he becomes visible again, whatever sign and degree he becomes visible in is prominent for the next two years. Since Mars has just woken up from his slumber and is now in his debilitated sign of Libra, here comes a brand new 2 year cycle of action, initiative and drive around equality, justice and relationship issues. Again, check where 13 degrees of Libra falls in your natal chart as this is where Mars will go to “work” over the next 2 years and this area will get a boost in action and attention. The New Moon conjunct Mars in Libra will add some feisty and sexy energy to La Luna. This can go two ways. Either folks could be rather “passive aggressive” or there will be an increase in sexual energy. It could in fact be both as I think about it lol. The higher vibration of both coming together will be around creating action around working together towards a common goal or objective. The lower vibration of the two coming together could be power struggles and tantrums if someone doesn’t get their way and petty arguments and disagreements.
The New Moon in Libra is here to offer us a glimpse of a world where peace, equality and justice matter. Grace and respect need a comeback don’t you agree? This new moon wants us to realize that there is always at least 2 sides to every situation, disagreement or opposing viewpoint. If we could only stop trying to be “right” and work on being “cooperative” this world would be quite a different place. This New Moon in the sign of the scales wants us to work on creating such peace of mind and balance. This is not utopia but with work and willingness this is possible. The New Moon in Libra is here to bring in peaceful vibes of cooperation and respect, remind us of kindness and beauty and to restore the possibility of unity within the world, despite our opposing beliefs and viewpoints.
