New Moons are the perfect opportunity to initiate new ideas and intentions into the world! We are reminded during this time that when we take action to nourish our mind and body we create fertile ground for new seeds to grow. The energy of a Libra new moon is Yang centered; it is a time of action, movement, and initiation to aid in the process of manifestation.
Self vs Others
No better way to bring forward change than to have a new moon in the sign of Libra! Libra is a masculine, cardinal air sign that initiates us into the Fall Equinox. As we move forward into the autumn season we will be forced to take a deeper look at the aspects of our personal life that need adjusting.
Libra rules relationships, as well as finding equality and fairness within legal matters, including contracts and partnerships. These relationships do not necessarily have to be romantic, but rather any type of one on one relationship. Libra energy focuses on how we are in relation to people, places, and things around us. Opposite of Aries, its sister sign, Libra prefers teamwork and collaboration rather than sole independence.
During the fall season, we connect more intimately with family and friends while gathering our final bearings before the winter slumber. This Libra New Moon is asking us to review our relationship to self, which will reflect our relationship with others. Libra energy is always striving for balance and fairness, and they can sometimes overcompensate for the sake of others in order to keep the peace. This can be a great time to find more balance between commitments to self and others, as well as setting healthy boundaries.
Leave some room for Love
Since this new moon is ruled by Venus, (Venus rules art, beauty, as well as romance, and pleasure) this can be a great time to connect and meet with new people as well as potential love interests. Of course, this will all depend on where Libra is placed in your chart, but all in all, this is a great time to socialize and have a little fun. Libra energy is very charismatic and charming so don’t be afraid to be playful and flirty.
Lastly, something to be mindful of, though this is a New Moon, move with caution before beginning anything new during this time as Mercury along with 5 other planets are still retrograde. Mercury will go direct on October 2nd, and will officially leave its shadow on the 16th. This is a re-evaluation time for commitments, relationships, and most importantly the commitments that we make to ourselves. In true Libra fashion, always remain graceful through the shifts and changes.
