The Zodiac’s Natural Peacekeeper!
On September 28, the New Moon brings with her the opportunity for creativity—appearing dark, or empty, like fertile ground. New Moons happen when the Moon is between the Sun and the Earth. Over the following 14 to 15 nights, the Moon appears to gather more light from the Sun, becoming a crescent and eventually a Full Moon, and so brings with her the power of growth and potential. The New Moon in Libra is known as the zodiac’s natural peacekeeper. A lot of people consider this to be the energy of level-headed logic and fairness at all costs, especially since one of this sign’s symbols is the scales.
The Zodiac’s Queen of Cause and Effect!
Libra is the sign of balance, relationship, and justice. Libra reminds us that equity cannot exist when we are forced to hide a part of ourselves, our stories, or our truth. The New Moon in Libra is ripe for both reality checking and dreaming. The zodiac’s Queen of Cause and Effect wants us to thoroughly consider the consequences of our actions this month. As the New Moon in Libra dances through our zone of divine details and daily practices, it brings the perfect moment for considering “wellness” in the most inclusive sense of that term. Wellness of body, mind and soul.
Justice and Impartiality!
When the Moon transits the Libra zodiac sector, it is better to defer important decisions for later, but solutions to existing problems could be easy found. It is a time of justice and impartiality. Let this Moon remind you that this life is a crazy quilt of surprise endings and beginnings. It is a time to realize that we are not always right. The Moon in Libra stimulates our desire for harmony and balance, while the sense of beauty, refinement and aesthetic increases. It is a time for gratitude.
Fall and Harvest Season!
Libra is the first Autumn zodiac sign, marking the start of the fall and harvest season. Gardeners that work with Moon phases will sow seeds of leafy and short-root plants during a New Moon. As the Moon waxes, its tidal pull draws water up to the top of the soil nurturing the seed. Stop now to take stock of what you’ve been working on and of where you’ve put your energy since the spring. Untangle yourself from anything that doesn’t bear the fruit you’re craving to cultivate. Then be super-intentional about what you take on from here as you move forward. Trust your instincts.
Re-establish Balance That Has Been Lost!
The New Moon is all about a new cycle, and the Libra New Moon is all about finding ways to re-establish balance that has been lost. Libra doesn’t just appreciate balance — Libra also seeks out imbalance and fixes it. Make it your personal mission to compromise, since the Libra New Moon could initiate pleasant negotiations or sweet heart-to-hearts. Don’t be surprised if you find yourself wanting to play peacemaker during this transit!
Peaceful and Pleasing!
This New Moon, in the sign Libra this September, loves to love. Libra is a social air sign, surrounding itself with others, and trying to keep things peaceful and pleasing. One of the most beautiful qualities of the Libra sign, within the New Moon, is the ability to relate. We truly can relate to others if we recognize our amazing ability to see the “other side,” and to put ourselves in someone else’s shoes. It’s time to start a new habit of really appreciating the other person’s position, especially when things get sticky.
Greek Goddess Themis!
Libra comes from the Greek Goddess Themis, whose name translates to “divine law.” Goddess Themis is sometimes portrayed as being blindfolded, and sometimes not, wielding a sword to cut through delusion. Although Libra is recognized as an agent of balance, there might actually be very little “middle ground” in her world, with the weights of her scale like this or that, no gray area in between, world split in two. Consider that our social webs are not immune to universal law, that relationships are not pleasant mistakes but heavenly constructs. Are you surrounded by the right people? Don’t give away your power. Sometimes, compromise is an important part of keeping your power. Remember that we cannot change anyone, only the way we see them.
New Moon in Libra Ritual!
New Moon Energy can be powerful. Tapping into this energy can support our dreams and desires. We can harness the energy of the New Moon to fulfill our visions and make our desires come true by creating a New Moon ritual. This ritual should be a time where you can relax and light a candle and maybe some incense, too. Listen to your heart and write down on paper what you truly desire in life. Do not ask for too much, keep your list simple and short with no more than ten goals or wishes. Declare to the New Moon what your vision is. Declare it boldly and with courage. Speak them loudly. By physically speaking them you symbolize your intention to manifest your goals.
