Following on from Sundays energetically rejuvenating Spring Equinox, we now have a beautiful New Moon in Libra, which is particularly auspicious as the Sun just moved into Libra as well.
This signifies the perfect harmonisation of the active masculine Solar energy with the intuitive feminine Lunar energy, combining in Libra the sign of serious commitments. This applies to romantic commitments, marriage, business commitments, and any family or friends you have a strong commitment with.
Over the next couple of nights it's a good opportunity to relax & unwind with your loved ones. Share stories & bond over mutual interests & have lots of fun. If your loved ones aren't close at hand, give them a call or message reminding them that you love them.
On a more internal personal level, it's also a good time to focus on rebalancing yourself & rededicating yourself to the new fresh start that the Spring Equinox heralded in.
Important relationships can be forged at this time, one that is started during this New Moon, holds potential to lead to a strong commitment.
For existing relationships, this is a time of feeling as though you can have a fresh start, your relationship can be reborn again. Libra who is ruled by Venus, encourages you to show loving kindness to yourself & others. This New Moon is all about "We" not "Me" & has a wonderful energy about it, so embrace Libra's Lunar moonbeams with open arms.
This can be experienced as a yearning to find peace & harmony in close relationships. Their can also be extreme ostentatious shows of love, the more extravagant the show, the more potential it has to throw things out of balance, remember Libra wants balance, not extremes.
If you feel as though your personalrelationships have been slightly tumultuous, now is a time to work towards finding the middle ground. Libra's art of diplomacy & compromise are essential, this can lead to consolidation & building positive communication channels to re-bridge your relationships.
Much like Libra's Scales, our emotions can sometimes be hard to balance & we can swing from one extreme to the other, having a major Jekyll & Hyde effect on both our emotions & our mind. Polar extremes of emotions & thoughts at this time can have a very adverse effect. Remember it's important at this juncture to passionately strive for harmony & equilibrium on all levels. Drinking the Libra herbal tea blends will help to sooth any ungrounded energy.
If you have felt recently as though you are a a cross roads, the hour for weighing things up is coming to an end. Now is the time to be making decisions with clarity of mind, it's important to be decisive, rather than sit on the fence. In your process of making the decision make sure you are discerning rather than critical. There is a Karmic element to this, in that what you sowed yesterday, you reap today & what you sow today you reap tomorrow. Be transparent with yourself & make decisions from wisdom & faith rather than fear.
Although this New Moon is all about your relationships with other people, if we think of ourselves as a reflection of the people closest to us, then this New Moon is also about our own self-development, in this case we are witnessing it through others as a projection.
The Spring Equinox combined with the Libra Sun & New Moon is a Rite of Passage, on a personal level it welcomes in a new stage of spiritual evolution & development at a deep level. This is Tantric Soul Alchemy where you are transforming an aspect of yourself through loving partnership with another.
New Moon conjunct Lilith
This months New Moon is conjunct with the asteroid Lilith, also know as the dark side of the Moon. The energies of Libra & Lilith combined suggest that although it's important to be loving at this time, we need to be careful not to smother, be over sickly sweet or demanding.
If pushed Lilith can have the opposite response that you hoped for, negotiations & peace pacts can back fire. This behaviour is an over-emphaisie of Libra, going to extremes. Whether martyring yourself or being too pushy, both are detrimental.
Lilith is pretty rebellious, does things on her own terms & won't take kindly to any pressure. Again with the Libra New Moon, it's all about a healthy balance.
The other thing about Lilith, is any shallowness, moaning, acting spoilt or hiding of true emotions won't be tolerated. Transparency & open heartedness is the way forward.
Lilith can sometimes look on the slightly darker shadow side of things, particularly when it comes to sex, emotions & feminine nature. This feminine nature also applies to men in the form of your Anima, this being the female spirit within the masculine physical body. We all have an internal Lilith & at times like this rather than shying away from her, it's important to express our shadow side.
Pluto going Direct
Pluto has just come out of it's retrograde stage & will fully go direct on Oct 3rd. So if recently, you felt as though you've been dealing with some heavy emotions, challenging situations or experiencing a crisis of confidence, take heart that you should find this eases up now.
This is also helped by the resent ending of the transit between the Moon & Chiron the wounded healer, which can bring up deep & challenging emotional energy. Now this Moon Chiron transit is over, it should leave you with a clearer & more objective view on your close relationships.
