The New Moon will be in Libra on 30th September or 1st of October depending on where in the world you are. Libra is the 7th house of the zodiac representing relationships and is ruled by Venus.
Venus is all about pleasure, especially pleasure shared with someone else. This planet concerns itself with love, beauty, romance and harmony in our emotional relationships of marriage, friendship and other unions (like business partnerships). Venus teaches us how to love and appreciate ourselves, others and things we possess. We appear attractive and we attract others because of Venus. Socialising, relating to others including ourselves, is important to Venus.
Libra is a cardinal air sign where we move from the “Me” to the “We”, meaning relationships involving co-operation is born. True cohesiveness can only be found through love and when we are in union with others, hence this is the reason Venus is the ruler of Libra. Be aware that one of Libra’s weaknesses is trying to be all things to all people and there can be a very hefty price paid for this weakness.
One of the Libran energy’s greatest strengths is seeking balance which calls on diplomacy. This also applies to each of us in the relationship we have with ourselves.
This New Moon is the opportune time to renew relationships; if you have relationships that need healing this would be the ideal time to build bridges and start anew; for existing relationships, this is a great time to energise and put new life into those relationships.
For those of you who are single and looking for someone, look at your emotional needs so you can attract the person who can fulfil them. It’s also important to realise that self-love comes from within and you aren’t dependent on another person for fulfilment.
