Libra New Moon2022
The New Moon is on 25 September 4:54 PM EST at 2 degrees 48 minutes Libra.
Libra is a Cardinal air sign. It makes sense that it is a Cardinal sign as it begins around the Equinox. Cardinal signs like to begin things.
We have a new season and a new time of the mind. Air signs deal with thoughts and ideas. Venus-ruled Libra likes to think of love and beauty. It has an understanding, too, of the opposites of those qualities and everything in between.
We talk of balance with Libra. As the first of the signs in the second half of the astrological year - it is learning about balance through relationships of all kinds. It looks at light and dark, night and day, sea and shore, self and other.
It sees an interaction, a behavior, a way of presenting, and makes an internalized decision on how IT would like to interact, behave, to present - having evaluated what it has seen and experienced.
Mercury is retrograde until October 2nd. It is retrograde in Virgo now, so revision of what is true, what is useful, what is helpful and what is good for a laugh is in order.
Mars is in Mercury-ruled Gemini for months to come so it’s a good time to sync up thoughts and ideas with the actions that are taken.
Jupiter has recently entered Aries. The way we will expand into optimism, a wider view of things - is to allow the self to get in tune with natural law on the instinctual level. This will serve the individual AND, in turn, the whole.
What is Natural Law? It is the seasons turning, it is the wind blowing, the fire crackling, the water winding in the way it chooses down the stream to the sea. It is the pulsating vibration of the earth that we can sync up with if we but stand on, sit on, and walk with care and listening upon it. It is what feels right on an intuitive level.
The elements run instinctually, with wisdom. And so can we.
Libra’s polarity is to Aries. They are both Cardinal signs. They like to start things. At a new Moon each month, we can begin again. This new Moon is more potent for beginnings as we have just experienced the Equinox. The wheel is of the year is turning to a new season regardless of where we live upon it.
Most planets are in retrograde motion, so the energy can feel like resuming a project/relationship/plan rather than a stark new beginning.
Aries is the first sign of the zodiac and Libra is the seventh. Libra is the first of the socially-focused signs. It is learning who it is by joining with others. From Aries through Virgo the self is developing. In Libra, it starts to relate and to define who it is not simply from its own eye view but through the view and experiences of others.
What view are we observing in others, in the world at large now? What do we try on for size – in the mind, the heart, in our actions.
Instinctually, what suits us – our values, beliefs, desires? Libra is Venus- ruled, after all. In Venus-ruled Taurus we looked at the real sense of safety, security, and survival. In Libra, we run through the mind, the idea, and the aesthetic.
Much effort is undertaken in this world for the beauty that will be made or delivered as a result.
What is your instinctually and aesthetically-attuned eye leading you toward? What fills your heart up when you drink it in? What causes you to avert your gaze or, even to squeeze your eyes shut so hard a single tear is squeezed out.
These experiences - these intakes of images, ideas and sensations are calling for special attention at this time. They inform us of what is important to us – what we want more of, what we can leave behind and what is calking us to action.
Do we feel called to express devotion? Do we want to create something of beauty? Or do we find our fist raised in the air grasping a shorn lock of our hair in solidarity with our sisters around the world. 💪
Time will tell. This time will tell. Follow the beauty – be it harmonious, glorious, mundane, or shocking. True Beauty leads to the heart. In the heart beats the power that strengthens and transforms all.
I stand with women and those who stand with the women.
Lots of Libra love to you.
