The New Moon in the sign of Libra starts a good cycle in which to commit to personal goals that express the positive energies of the sign of the Scales.
We have a chance to build our negotiating skills without compromising our principles or needs, and without resorting to appeasement. It’s a time to work on re-balancing our relationships and to recognize our partners as teammates rather than adversaries.
With this potent Libra energy, we have the chance to make important changes in our lives. Some of Libra’s “lessons” involve learning to make peace with those around us, as well as in our environments, establishing a sense of order and balance in our lives, and recognizing the value of partnerships. This is a time to work on these skills.
Libra has an innate ability for, and love of, synthesizing opposites. Peace and harmony are the goals, but there’s a fine balancing act involved along the way that requires some commitment and effort.
This New Moon brings fresh and creative energy into our lives, and more specifically, into our relationships. This is a cycle in which balancing our close personal relationships becomes an urgent desire. Negotiations may be especially effective, as we are inclined to assert our needs in ways that don’t offend others. Even so, there are obstacles and opposition to overcome with difficult aspects, and the route to peace may be a conflict-ridden one!
This New Moon has a tense configuration as it opposes retrograde Mars and squares Jupiter, Pluto, and Saturn. This lunation forms a trine to the North Node, suggesting we’re ready to learn and grow from situations/blocks/challenges. Venus, the ruler of this New Moon, opposes Neptune, suggesting that we’re battling overblown expectations.
This phase of the Moon occurs at 23 degrees and 53 minutes of Libra, affecting people with personal planets and points at approximately 20 to 28 degrees of the Cardinal signs (Aries, Cancer, Libra, and Capricorn) most significantly.
