What is the new moon in Libra? How does it affect us?
The new moon is an event that occurs when the sun and moon are in the exact same position. They are in conjunction, meaning the energies of the sun and moon are amplified and in alignment.
Because the new moon is a symbolic blank slate, this is a powerful time to plant seeds and set intentions.
Libra is the seventh zodiac sign in the astral wheel. Represented by the archetype of The Diplomat, Libra is a sign that values logic, truth, and harmony. Charming, romantic, and natural peacekeepers, Libras do well in partnerships. They are adaptable, fair, and willing to compromise to maintain peace.
With the new moon in Libra, here are some intentions we can set that align with Libra’s energy of balance, relationships, and harmony—
More open channels for communication. There may be hiccups because Mercury is retrograde the first 1.5 weeks of Libra season. This presents the perfect opportunity for practicing compassion and patience while communications smooth over. We’re all human and we’re bound to miscommunicate. By recognizing that as a human we are naturally fallible, we allow ourselves to be more compassionate and empathetic to other’s mistakes.
Removing yourself from unbalanced relationships. You may find yourself getting real with your relationships and asking, “Is this healthy for me?” Libra’s desire for balance will help you evaluate your relationships in an objective manner. Red flags that went unnoticed may pop out all of a sudden. Spend this season reflecting on what it means to be in a healthy, balanced relationship. And if there are red flags, what can be done to resolve them?
Heightened creativity and artistic expression. With the change in seasons, Libra season encourages you to go out and find inspiration in your surroundings. Decorate your home, change up your wardrobe, play with a new art form. The possibilities are endless! Spend some time contemplating what brings you joy.
While the new moon’s energy lasts for 3 days, we can work with its energy for the next 14 days. This gives us enough time to set goals and take inspired action so we can reap the benefits in time for the next full moon.
