We finish September and start October under the influence of a Libra New Moon. The New Moon occurs on Friday, September 30th at 8:11pm in the eighth degree of Libra. Balance is the issue... that and fairness, justice and equality, as well as beauty, grace and refinement. Everyone knows of airy Libra's association with relating and relationships. The key to flowing into right relationship in all your associations involves finding the balance.
This New Moon, meaning the conjunction of the Sun and Moon, aligns with ebullient Jupiter in Libra as well, expanding opportunity to put our relationships into balance, whether personal, social or professional. Jupiter has a tendency to make everything larger than life and in Libra, we need to be aware of great swings in any direction. Maintaining equilibrium is the path to success in the month ahead. So, while good things can come in, so can difficult ones and avoiding extremes, all-or-nothing scenarios or getting too high or too low, will see you through to the good times.
Relating includes communication, taking turns and listening. Awareness and acceptance precede action and the next few weeks brings optimism from Jupiter, to this alignment of the Sun and Moon in Libra. If you look for it and are prepared for a chance to move ahead in your relationship, this could be the beginning of a beautiful phase of partnership. Be forward thinking and remember that relationships are a two-way street; it isn't up to you to do all the work. Let the beauty and sensitivity of Libra shine on you!
Also in the mix for this New Moon chart, is a challenging aspect from Mars in Cardinal Earth, (Capricorn) to the Sun and Moon in Cardinal Air, (Libra). Cardinal signs like to take action, they begin things and this alignment is pressing us to break out of stuck thoughts, associations or agreements and apply new energy to making something happen for the better. Mars spent a lot of time in Sagittarius, thanks to a retrograde cycle... and had from early March until just a few days ago, to do his homework, research and exploration of the road ahead. In Capricorn for a little over 6 weeks, Mars is happy to be building new foundations, especially in business and career, so that he may now put his plans for the future into action!
A reminder... the biggest and most important relationship to get right, is the one between your ego self and your Higher Self. Do that first and the others start to fall into place. In the meantime, rock the boat if it needs rocking and if it doesn't, try to keep things on an even keel. And while you're at it, remember to keep your head in the stars and your feet on the ground... that's a balance in and of itself~
