New Moon in Libra, 25th September 2022 at 2 degrees. Radical Love!
This New Moon in Libra has all the ingredients for a fresh new start in love and in all our relationships. Exciting and passionate, in opposition to fiery Jupiter in Aries, it could be the beginning of a beautiful love story to a significant other or even to YOURSELF!
Dare to speak your mind in love, state your needs, follow your passion and go after what you want!
Jupiter in Aries in opposition, is liberating, gives us self confidence, courage to be radically authentic and truthful with ourselves and others, so that we can restore an inner sense of balance, peace and harmony.
While Libra would rather avoid speaking her truth to avoid conflicts in order to keep the harmony, in contrast at this New Moon and during the next four weeks, we will find that we have the courage to speak our truth, especially when we have been repressing it, as we wake up to the truth that healthy, happy relationships, true intimacy and love can only be built on honesty.
Let’s transform each other with the truth.
An upgrade to all of our relationships, it’s an evolutionary step forward after we have been releasing karmic contracts and old karmic dysfunctional patterns in our relationships, during Pluto’s retrograde the past five months that will soon come to an end on the 8th of October.
From now on and during the month of October and November, there will be major breakthroughs, shake ups and liberating changes, as the Saturn-Uranus square is almost exact once again, adding to the intensity, Ecplise season is soon upon us. Beginning with a Solar eclipse in Scorpio on the 25th October and a Lunar eclipse on the 8th of November.
Change is inevitable, transformation is by choice.
Personally and collectively it is a time of great awakening that makes the truth impossible to ignore as all that is toxic is being brought up to the surface.
The current world wide conflicts and demonstrations that we are witnessing for more freedom and justice will increase, as the Saturn- Uranus square sees radical change and progressiveness, challenge the Patriarchal governments and the abuse of Power, also represented by Pluto at the last degrees of Capricorn.
It’s a chance on a personal and global level to rid ourselves of all that is toxic in our lives, enabling us to live a healthier more authentic life, built on honesty and healthier emotional and behavioral patterns.
When we hide parts of ourselves in order to please, we attract the wrong relationships. Only when we show up authentically and honestly will we attract happy, healthy and long-lasting relationships.
While there is much potential for shocks and conflict, we will be able to use the diplomatic powers of Libra to set healthy boundaries in a kind but firm way.
Do not let people pull you into their Storm, instead pull them into your Peace.
Mercury retrograde in Virgo conjunct Venus in a challenging aspect to Mars in Gemini, gives as a rare opportunity to be honest with ourselves and face our own inner truths, gaining deep insights into our own hidden subconscious mind, with a better understanding of how our own subconscious patterns of behaviour and thinking have been self-sabotaging as well as limiting our true potential.
Fall in Love with yourself!
Jupiter in Aries, has the effect of Libra thinking less about the needs of others and more about her own. Libra can have a tendency towards codependency and issues around narcissistic/codependent relationships can arise, as Jupiter in Aries teaches us how a healthy ego and self-love must be at the core of all things, this is the Hero’s journey.
A New Moon is a time of new beginnings and with the dynamic intensity of the Saturn-Uranus square and the coming eclipse season, its time to courageously pioneer the way ahead, enabling a fresh new beginning with a renewed lust for life.
Jupiter in Aries brings a desire for more excitement, freedom, independence and adventure. Issues may arise about how we can integrate those needs into our relationships.
Relationships that don’t support freedom and growth, but keep the status quo at all costs out of fear, will be under critical review. We will be challenged to practice the “art” of setting healthy, firm boundaries during the next four weeks without unnecessarily furthering and escalating the situation while still “owning” our power.
We can use these energies as a catalyst to initiate change and expansion in our lives.It’s time to take action and speak your mind with passion. We have the gift now to be both self-assertive and diplomatic and to get the fine balance right. Jupiter in Aries will help you to assert your leadership and entrepreneur qualities, to take charge instead of being passive. Pioneering and daring, you no longer have to wait for permission or validation from others.
Neptune in Pisces in opposition to Venus and Mercury in Virgo helps us to let go of our blind spots, denial and delusions .
The analytical mind of Mercury in Virgo retrograde, helps us to gain clarity and make order out of chaos from a place of objectivity and detachment, while at the same time listening to our hearts with compassion and intuition as our guide.
“Three things cannot be long hidden: the sun, the moon, and the truth” -Buddha
Venus-ruled Libra, the goddess of love, is somewhat hedonistic and quality of life is more important to us now.
Do we have enough time and space in our lives for fun and relaxation? Is it all about work and no play? Are you giving and not receiving enough love and appreciation?
Love, beauty and all things bright and beautiful are in focus; we can bring fresh, exciting wind into everything Venus-ruled, our relationships, creativity, art and finances. We can suddenly feel the urge to beautify our surroundings and the way we look. Libra instills in us a desire to honor our inner and outer beauty. Break out and try new things that will enhance your joy and pleasure factor.
The combination of Mercury retrograde conjunct Venus means there is much potential for Synchronicities and fated meetings, especially in Love and with people who can help you with your life’s goals.
It’s time to take back your power and to take charge of your life and focus on the direction you want to go and create the life that you love!
We can no longer let our fears choose our destiny.
The New Moon in Libra is reminding us that we don’t have to earn love from others because you can’t earn what you already have. You came from love; you are love and we never need to earn it. We ARE enough always.
The gift of the New Moon in Libra is also one of self-love, helping us to release all that is NOT love. Remember your, energy, time, self-respect and boundaries are holy and sacred.
“Life is a balance of holding on and letting go”–Rumi
The most important relationship in your life is the relationship you have with yourself. It’s time to fall in love with YOU.
The New Moon in Libra offers us a chance to evolve in Love. We are being asked to mature and redefine what healthy relationships really are and redefine our needs, what love of self and others really means and to take responsibility for our own happiness and our actions.
Don’t fall in love, RISE in love.” “Immature people falling in love destroy each other’s freedom, create a bondage, make a prison. Mature persons in love help each other to be free; they help each other to destroy all sorts of bondages. And when love flows with freedom there is beauty…A mature person does not fall in love, he or she rises in love…Two mature persons in love help each other to become more free. There is no politics involved, no diplomacy, no effort to dominate. Only freedom and love.” ~Osho
