The Moon is New in Libra on October 19, 2017, at 3:12 PM EDT.
A new cycle begins with the New Moon in Libra. This cycle offers us a good period for committing 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 an ideal 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. However, with the New Moon opposing Uranus and forming a (wide) square with Pluto, we can encounter resistance and possibly power struggles. Surprising events may be part of the picture now, particularly through our relationships and a different perspective. The lunation’s harmony with Saturn suggests the potential for long-lasting, ultimately useful and steady results. We’re able to combine tradition with innovation effectively now.
