new Moon in Libra
october 8, 2018
Where would we be without the mirror that our relationships bring to us?
The New Moon is the dark night where we can’t see the light of the Moon but she is there, urging us to begin, to pay attention to what we’re drawn to and to create from our deepest desires. This New Moon on October 8, 2018 is in Libra, 15 degrees, 48 minutes at 8:46pm PDT.
Libra is an air sign that has a love of refinement and ultimately seeks peace. Libra has a natural orientation to other people and is drawn to experiences that reflect the ideals of beauty and balance such as any of the arts. Libra also represents the scales of justice, where the process of hearing out ideas or beliefs that are opposing and working towards common ground with fairness and honesty can be the road to resolution and peace.
Libra has its shadow where indecision, manipulation, fear of confrontation and people pleasing can lead to misunderstandings and lack of trust between people. Venus the ruler of Libra is currently in the sign of Scorpio taking love into the depths where intimacy and healing is possible through raw honesty and facing challenges head on. Pluto in the sign of Capricorn squares the New Moon and Libra’s tendency to smooth things over to keep the peace. Pluto challenges us to show up with commitment and personal integrity to keep our relationships real and meaningful. For the only way that a relationship can unfold honestly is with the truth.
During this New Moon phase relationships with others and with ourselves will be asking for attention. In our personal relationships how can we plant the seeds of a more significant, honest and loving bond? Is there a healthy balance between the needs of each person as well as mutual appreciation and healthy communication? Within ourselves are we out of balance in some way? Too much work or school? Overly stressed or not enough time for self-care and appreciation? This New Moon is a good time to consider ways to create more beauty and balance in life that appeals and uplifts you.
And in a world where divisiveness has escalated, can we open our hearts and reach out to others in friendship? Can we be honest mediators and negotiators? Can we be the true peacemakers?
