On September 25th and several days thereafter, the new moon in Libra offers new insights into relationships and opportunities to achieve peace, harmony, and balance in our lives. While the new moon in Libra is likely to bring in new relationships of all types, it also presents us with new perspectives to consider.Read More »
Nevertheless, this new moon will bring awareness and insight into how we relate to other people, our ability to compromise, and our ability to achieve equilibrium in our lives.
New Love and Relationships Courtesy of the New Moon
If you are interested in new relationship energy, this new moon in Libra definitely offers up love. At this time, we’re likely to seek relationships that offer mental stimulation and a sense of ease. We are interested in partners that have the ability to compromise, appeal to us visually, and offer us peace, harmony, and balance. If these are things that have been missing from our relationships, this new moon could bring awareness to the lack thereof.
It is also quite possible that this new moon in Libra will bring in potential partners that embody Libra energy. Prospective partners are likely to be very accommodating and tactful with a desire to consider other people’s perspectives in a relationship. Again, due to the Mercury retrograde currently in the sign of Libra, while there may be a potential for new relationships, it may be best to hold off at this time to gain clarity about prospective partners as well as current relationships.
New Insights in Relating
One of the positive benefits of this new moon in Libra is the insights into how we relate to others. These insights are even more amplified due to Mercury retrograde in Libra. There is incoming information regarding love and relationships for review. We are reconsidering how we relate to others at this time. These insights could potentially offer us opportunities to approach relationships with balance.
If we find that we are the ones to always compromise to obtain and maintain relationships, the new moon in Libra offers us insight into how we can create the equilibrium that allows for reciprocity in our relationships.
On the other hand, this new moon in Libra could make us aware that perhaps we are not as accommodating and compromising as we could be. This new moon in Libra could reveal that we are selfish in relationships prompting us to consider how we can take action to have relationships that are mutually beneficial.
Again, any potential insights gained about relationships under the new moon in Libra energy can be applied once Mercury moves direct.
Cardinal Action…or Not
This new moon is in cardinal Libra which propels us to take action on the new insights and awareness that come up for us in our relationships with others. When we become aware that perhaps our relationships aren’t as balanced as we would like them to be, there is the opportunity to incorporate balance for ourselves so that we can also have relationships that are reflective of our own peaceful, harmonious energy.
Again, Mercury is currently retrograde in Libra during this new moon in Libra. When Mercury is retrograde there is usually reconsideration of our relating patterns. Instead of taking action right now regarding relationships, it’s best to use the new awareness and insight that comes from both Mercury retrograde in Libra as well as this new moon in Libra to become aware of possible imbalances.
At this new moon, we are considering our wants and needs in relation to our partners so that when Mercury moves direct, we are in a better place to implement the awareness from this new moon in Libra in a concrete manner that allows us to have the harmonious, balanced relationships that we desire.
Seeking Balance & Harmony
Another aspect of the new moon in Libra is the revelation of possible imbalance. The sign of Libra is always seeking equilibrium not only for others but also for itself. There’s the understanding that if we don’t have peace, harmony, and balance within ourselves it will be very difficult to find it with another person in a relationship. Harmony with ourselves allows us to attract relationships that are mutually beneficial.
Reciprocity in relationships is definitely a theme at this new moon in Libra. Events could bring awareness to possible inequalities that need to be addressed in order to obtain harmonious relations. The new moon insights offer us the opportunity to make necessary changes in order to achieve relationships that offer balance and reciprocity.
If anything comes from this new moon in Libra, it is the fact that we are more open to other perspectives. It is very likely that we will encounter others who are capable of providing some insightful perspectives, especially regarding relationships that can bring peace, harmony, and balance.
Libra energy weighs options for better understanding. Again, Mercury retrograde in Libra urges us to consider different perspectives while taking action at a later time.
Another aspect of the new moon in Libra is indecision. Because Libra is focused on being diplomatic and considering ideas beyond itself, it can be difficult to make firm decisions. There’s always the potential that additional information could come in changing Libra’s stance.
In terms of relationships, this can lead to what is referred to as FOMO-fear of missing out with the perception that perhaps there are better options in lovers and relationships. The new moon in Libra could bring in potential lovers that hold Libra energy-enhancing charm and agreeableness that make new love prospects more attractive than existing partners. How does Libra choose?
However, there’s some information missing about these new love prospects courtesy of Mercury in retrograde Libra. If there’s ever a time that we may want to step back and get to know others before making a decision in love, this is the time.
While it’s okay to date and get to know others, making commitments isn’t ideal because we don’t know all the details about these love prospects. It is quite possible that when Mercury goes direct on October 2nd, clarifying details and information will come to the surface regarding relationships and lovers that will influence our perspectives. So, hold off on moving forward with new love interests…no matter how charming and appealing they may be.
Ultimately, this new moon in Libra presents us with the awareness of the need for harmony and balance in our lives personally and in relation to others. This new moon provides the insight that in order to have harmonious reciprocal relationships with others, we must first be able to have a harmonious relationship with ourselves. Let’s use this new moon in Libra energy to seek harmony, peace, and balance for the self so that it can be reflected back to us in our relationships.
