This New Moon in Libra arrives on Sunday, September 25 at 5:54 p.m ET amidst a chorus of planets moving backward; six planets are in retrograde, to be exact.
Every year, the New Moon spotlights love. However, this year with Mercury (communication), Jupiter ( luck), Saturn (discipline), Uranus (transformer), Neptune (spirituality), and Pluto (transformation) in retrograde our needs, values, and romantic relationships may trigger us. It may even uncover information that can help us deepen our relationships and heal.
What this New Moon means
New Moons are always about seeding new beginnings, ideas, and intentions – this New Moon is about making those transitions we’ve been intentional most of this year! The forthcoming New Moon is the first lunar happening of the new season, which is occurring in the middle of a Mercury retrograde.
The retrograde in the messenger planet has turned our technology, plans, and our communications upside down.
So, we are invited to recalibrate our thoughts around love and our relationships. Although the New Moon shines a way forward, we should be cautious in – impulsively – taking that leap. Review, recognize, and re-establish your new priorities. Prepare to transition – just not yet! Old projects and plans may get unearthed with a different perspective and revive your interest again!
The New Moon in the sign of Libra is a cardinal, action-oriented air sign. It is symbolized by the scales and ruled by the planet Venus and transporter of love, beauty, and values during Libra season. Now, it nudges us to ask if our needs for beauty, art, and justice are being met inviting us to explore these parts of ourselves!
A makeover may be on the horizon for you, as well as surrounding yourself with your version of beauty! Think of inserting more lush nature, activism, a new branding photoshoot for your small business, or new furniture that adds an element of sophistication, and appreciation to your senses!
Jupiter, the planet of luck and blessings, is retrograding in Aries (warrior) – and opposes the New Moon – is showering us with extra enthusiasm, courage, and confidence! While it’s a blessing, be mindful of overcommitting or taking things too personally.
Working with this New Moon
Each New Moon sets up a six-month cycle around the visions and intentions you want to manifest in the coming months. When the Full Moon returns in the same sign, the six months are complete and we must integrate the intentions set! For this moon in Libra, the focus is on relationships and collaborations.
Take a moment to breathe, and set up a little altar or area focused on this manifestation work. Add stones or images that inspire balance and collaboration. Then, light a candle. Keep a journal near and begin to write the vision you have for relationships – take your time! Really allow yourself to feel the love, connection, and gratitude for the ones you have – and the collaborations you are calling in! Write everything in the present tense.
After that, close your eyes and envision your relationship deepening, a prosperous meant-to-be business partnership unfolding, and all manner of aligned connections for the next six months!
“I am open to receiving powerful,
honest and mutually supportive relationships and
collaborations in my life, now!”
