Ease and grace are with us at the Libra New Moon. Both luminaries (Sun and Moon) are in Libra, so this lunation is in the Autumn/Fall. Airy energies, and sometimes the first cool breezes revive the mind with a fresh wind. Look to the houses for what's up.
Libra New Moon in the First House: (House of Aries and Mars) The atmosphere of the Self -- looks, social behaviors, aura -- are foremost for this lunation. Is your inner beauty showing up in your self-image? Cast off garb that's not longer "you." Invite the muse to assist in upping the impact of your self-presentation. Time for self-pampering at the holistic spa or salon. Get a reboot of balance, since that's your calling card. What's the impression and message you send out? This is a New Moon for freshening up.
Libra New Moon in the Second House: (House of Taurus and Venus) Thoughts turn to your home, where you could have visions for making it cozier and lovelier. Chuck items in your environment that throw you off balance. It's time for a major seasonal clean, for more spaciousness. Thoughts about an art or craft comes to the fore. Intentions are set to honor natural talents, and invest in them. Concerns about finances are in bold, and any related issues of fairness. A hot topic is what's bringing a fair return on your investment of time, talents and resources.
Libra New Moon in the Third House: (House of Gemini and Mercury) This lunation concerns the lively social scenes of everyday life. There's mental sharpness and an impulse to socialize, particularly with your closer friends, colleagues or business partners. You might have hits about cultural events, classes or workshops to experience with your beloved. Some divinely inspired messages come about what's piquing your curiosity. Is it time to begin a new learning adventure? What media are you subscribing to, and is it up-to-date with who you are now? A lunation for catching up with acquaintances, siblings and extended family. You get out of any mental funks, and the spirit of change is in the air.
Libra New Moon in the Fourth House: (House of Cancer and the Moon) Epiphanies about your emotional origins -- the family scenes and bonds within which you formed from a zygote. Libra if Venus ruled, the planet of women, and this house concerns mothers and mothering, raising children, domestication, and home as safe refuge. You might get in a frenzy of de-cluttering, or decide to display family heirlooms. The muse is with you to give voice to childhood impressions, so keep the journal near. Take time to soak in hot baths and sleep deeply, for dreams that feel oh so real. You might realize your true needs and vow to look into support circles or reconnect with close friends or family.
Libra New Moon in the Fifth House: (House of Leo and the Sun) You express yourself artfully, and shine the most when performing with another. It's time to look at how others (like a lover) reflects on who you are. Do you feel respected and even admired by friends, your children or a beloved? A fresh start for the creative, dramatic sides of your personality. New plans are hatched, to step into the spotlight and show more of who you really are. Also great for a boost of play, adventure travel, outings just-for-fun. A reminder of the need for leisure, to enjoy a balanced life.
Libra New Moon in the Sixth House: (House of Virgo and Mercury or Chiron) Ideal for sweeping away cobwebs and general cleaning frenzies! Mental powers are at a peak, for seeing what's off balance in your daily routine. You can wield Libra's sword of illumination, to cut out distractions and draining detours. A good one for kicking off a new healthy living program. There's double momentum when you pair up with a friend, to keep each other company. Also good lunation for editing, doing fine detail work, detoxing.
Libra New Moon in the Seventh House: (House of Libra and Venus) A fresh start for calling in a significant other. You might find power in rituals for love and/or marriage, like creating a wish list of traits -- I did this, and got what I requested in my man. A time of reflection and ah-has about certain important people in your life. Possible realizations for the need to forgive, or ask for forgiveness, or balance out a relationship with deeds. Clarity is at a peak, for more awareness about relating, and your part in it. The door is open to revealing talks that set a new foundation for your life together.
Libra New Moon in the Eighth House: (House of Scorpio and Pluto) Here comes the deepest kind of dark Moon metamorphosis. The eighth is for transmuting something in a process of surrender, facing fears of the unknown, and rebirth. It's making room for buried creative potential, the kind that needs to live, or it festers and takes on a demonic life of its own. Issues related to intimacy, baring the soul, and giving over the self in sex (the little death) come to the fore. You might also see traditional themes of inheritance or merging finances come up. A lunation to meet the shadow, and cracking open seeds with the purifying element of fire.
Libra New Moon in the Ninth House: (House of Sagittarius and Jupiter) This lunation is about expanding your sphere, whether with travel or gaining wisdom. You might call in a teacher, or become a teacher in your field. Your travel plans might include another, or perhaps you dream of meeting someone special abroad. A time to reconnect with friends far afield, to see through their eyes. We seek experiences that stretch us, and give us a panoramic worldview. A lunation to revive your faith, that things are unfolding as they should. If stagnation has hold, let the dark Moon muse drop possible adventures into your dreamtime. One adventure could be embarking on the field of exploration (in or out of academia) where your true passions lie.
Libra New Moon in the Tenth House: (House of Capricorn and Saturn) You become aware of your status or standing in society. Or get an inkling of how you'd like to make your mark. The new Moon preoccupations here are long range -- career achievements, establishing yourself as an authority, leaving a legacy. You've got especially keen awareness of how you're being received, based on the reactions of others. This is a time to consolidate gains, and consider partnering in new ways. The feedback you get from others is meaningful now. Seek wise counsel from impartial friends or colleagues. It's a fresh start for your career outlook.
Libra New Moon in the Eleventh House: (House of Aquarius and Uranus) The urge is to belong to a social scene in a meaningful way. Your epiphanies come about friend circles and allies -- how strong is your social safety net? A fresh start might mean joining in somehow. An example is becoming part of a guild or association related to your field. Also, a lunation for unexpected jolts that come from beyond your known experience. Leave space at the void-like dark of the Moon, for surprise downloads that awaken or pop out an innovative idea.
Libra New Moon in the Twelfth House: (House of Pisces and Neptune) Truly time to retreat, as this is a lunation of subtle mystery. Great for filling your spiritual and emotional well. A wrap up dark of the Moon, to prepare for a new cycle. Look for ways to get into altered states of relaxation, to access more of what's swirling around. With the Libra factor, there can be articulation of what defies being put into words. Your refuge transports and grounds you when its both an enchanting and beautiful place to be. Fine art, cinema, music or literature hits those notes you're looking for. What's elevating and sublime brings on miracles of completion -- forgiveness, release, cord cutting, clearing the psychic landscape.
