On 24th September we have a beautiful New Moon in Libra
Libra rules your relationships. At the time of the New Moon in Libra, you have an opportunity to start fresh.
What are you looking for in your relationships? Often people think that they know what they really want, but they haven’t spent any time deeply examining their own emotional needs. Keep in mind that your needs change over time. Nothing stays the same, so it’s a good idea, especially at the time of the New Moon in Libra to look at what’s working for you and what’s not working. If you are experiencing on-going issues in your relationships, this is a good time to resolve to spend some time every day on looking at why your relationships are problematic.
Maybe it’s a particular relationship that’s causing you grief. What is it you want to change? Is it time to end this relationship? What adjustments can you make in order to get your needs met? Do you need to have a difficult conversation that you’ve been avoiding in order to clear the air?
True story: a Libra woman keeps on getting into relationships that never seemed to last. She went to her astrologer and asked her why she couldn’t seem to get into a satisfying committed relationship. The astrologer told her the reason was because she was looking for a relationship to answer all the problems she was facing in her life. She was feeling lonesome and was looking for someone to fill a void.
The most successful relationships are formed when each party is fulfilled and happy within themselves. This is the best starting point. If you are putting out a needy vibration, you won’t attract the kind of relationship that will be deeply nourishing to you.
At the very beginning, a new relationship usually feels wonderful. You are both on your best behaviour and you do everything you can to please the other person. However, as the saying goes: “familiarity breeds contempt,” and this is exactly what creeps in. Even though things are not necessarily directly expressed, we all feel the vibrations behind someone’s energy. An angry glare, a sudden erratic body movement can speak much louder than words.
During this New Moon in Libra there will be a tendency to want to please people and not necessarily to take care of your own needs. Make sure you keep yourself in the picture otherwise you’ll end up feeling resentful and frustrated. Whilst it is a good idea to try to resolve differences amicably, sometimes it just cannot be done.
Libra has a tendency to let something go on and on without addressing it. If you can catch something early in a relationship, you will have a much better chance of resolving it than if you leave it for weeks and even months festering inside of you.
Some of your relationships may be tested at this time. Some may drift away and yet with others you may make stronger bonds. If this New Moon is happening in your 7th house of relationships, you might have to be blunt and more direct with someone. (To find out more, see the 12 Houses in Astrology) Libra doesn’t like conflict and much prefers nicey-nicey, but you may have to risk the relationship and say what is on your mind.
Resolve to do something uplifting during this New Moon in Libra. It’s a good time to do anything artistic, creative, go to the movies, the theatre, a concert, an exhibition. It’s also an excellent time to beautify your environment. It could be something as simple as adding some pretty flowers or a painting that can improve your surroundings.
Libra loves to connect and to be friendly with people. During the day, reach out and make eye contact with as many people as you can. Smile from your heart and give each person you meet a feeling of appreciation and love. It doesn’t matter whether or not you receive a smile in return, what’s most important is that you are reaching out to others and connecting, no matter who they are. This is a wonderful way in which to benefit from the energies of this New Moon in Libra.
Think about ways in which you can connect more with people and feel that spark of love for each and every person you meet. We need more positive energy on our planet to see us through these turbulent times.
Good things to do with the Libra New Moon
- Socialise, catch up with friends
- Negotiate a deal
- Work in a team

- Go to a cultural event

- Focus on the beauty around you

Let’s conclude with the perfect quote from Sting who has both Sun and Moon in Libra:
“I have never lost perspective on who I am. Well, maybe briefly, but generally I am pretty balanced.”
