Happy New Moon in Libra! Every new lunation cycle is meant to connect us with a new intention that matches the grand cycle of Universal flow, creation, and evolution. The New Moon in Libra is the 7th one of the astrological year, and is a balancing point to what you began back in March with the Aries New Moon.
What have you learned over the past 6 months? Where have you exerted energy that is out of balance? Where are you ready to share and harmonize in a higher way?
The Sun and Moon meet up at 8 degrees Libra late on September 30 and are conjunct Jupiter (the planet of MORE) at 4 degrees Libra. That's a lot of Libra energy, accentuating money, love, relationships, beauty, music, and where we find and share pleasure with others.
However, Venus, the ruler of Libra, is in Scorpio, adding a deeper intensity to this New Moon. It's traditionally said that Venus does not do well in Scorpio because she can be jealous, emotionally intense, and doesn't always want to get along well with others...she wants control in relationships. So with her ruling this lunation, things are happening under the surface and not being revealed just yet...Venus in Scorpio is keeping things in her private domain and we may know more about where relationships stand - and true intentions - by the Full Moon on October 15.
Mars has newly entered Capricorn, and he is working with Venus nicely, so Masculine and Feminine energies are going to sync up well with a shared goal, ambition, and passion around what they want to build together.
That's the secret to this New Moon - looking at where you are in alignment and have an inner balance with your Masculine and Feminine energies, and how you are consciously directing them forward with passion and gusto. What do you want to build right now with others?
All 3 planets in Libra sextile Saturn in Sag, so there is a healthy dose of responsibility, structure, and real development taking place with your intentions right now.
Overall, this is a lovely New Moon that ends the eclipse season mania and brings us back to ourselves with a fresh sense of peace around where you are now.
It is an excellent time to smudge your home and make way for what the fall season (spring in the southern hemisphere) has in store for you over the next 3 months. It's also a great time to socialize, get out on the town, and have some fun with your peeps - you know those wine bottles aren't going to drink themselves!
