New Moon Libra
October 6, 2021 at 4:04 am PDT
Balance, Moderation

There is SO much going on astrologically with this month’s New Moon in Libra since there is an abundance of other planets that will be influencing factors. The Libra New Moon is a powerful opportunity for a fresh starts around relationships and creating balance and equilibrium in your life. Ruled by air, Libra and 5 planets in air signs right now. Air is the element of intellect, reason and communications, thus this is a good time to take an honest look at your emotions and process them through the logic of your mind for greatest understanding.
Libra is about partnerships and relationships, and with all that is going on in daily life, find balance between all the different relationships and your need to focus on your own self-care. With the New Moon conjunct the planet Mars, watch your energy levels this month, for if you push too hard or try to do too much and do not take care of yourself, you may feel overwhelmed and run down. Pace yourself. Mars can also bring forth areas of your life where you need to take action to make changes – some forced, some not, but if this occurs, know that these areas needed attention for some time.
Acknowledge all the ways you have grown and all the wisdom you have acquired during the past 18 months. Although you have been learning to get along and speak with greater diplomacy and thoughtfulness, it is time to seek new ways to be in your relationships and find paths of compromise without sacrificing your own personal integrity. You may even see some old wounds emerging around these themes. Recurring conflicts and patterns may present themselves forcing you to finally reckon with the decisions you make with others and the part you play in any conflicts. Take ownership of your behavior and get clear on how your actions, beliefs, and thoughts are contributing to the reality you are creating. This can be daunting so don’t fall into the denial or indecision loop.
The presence of Mars can trigger anger, restlessness and frustrations, so try to come from a place of composure, serenity and harmony when dealing with others. Reconsider your boundaries, wants and needs, and once you have done that feel free to pursue more intimacy within your close relationships or initiate new connections with others. Make peace with estranged friends and family for there are new opportunities to once again find common ground. However, pesky Mars can definitely throw fuel on the fire, and if not seeing eye-to-eye or finding common ground, flaring tempers and arguments can get heated under this cosmic alignment. If conversations become intense, try not to force your viewpoint on others. Negotiations, diplomacy and fairness are required now, so find the middle ground in tense situations. Find the balance. You may have to accept stepping away from the situation at this time.
Also in this New Moon mix is the planet Pluto that will be going direct. Revisit the past, reflect on what you need to take responsibility for, and to assess whether your actions are yielding the results that you are after. How have you changed and grown and what has transpired in your life in the last year? What has fallen away or been removed so that something new can be brought forth – rebirthed – in big or small ways? Have you released your attachments to people or material goods that were holding you back to allow you to move forward?

With Mercury still retrograde until October 18th, look back in the past for that answer you’ve been looking for. You may need to retrace your steps regarding a situation, as there could be an important details you missed somewhere. Review what has gone before, as there may be something of value that can be learned from past actions or experiences.

Under this New Moon aligning with Mars, you will have epiphanies and sudden insights that will have you motivated to set personal intentions and going after what you want. To find that clear, long-term vision of what you want to achieve. You know you need a moderate, guided approach to reach your goals, and your inner voice is guiding you to the right outcome.
Reflect and pinpoint what you really want to achieve and how you want your life to be and then make an action plan for the upcoming year so you can start actively pursuing it. Bring clarity to your long-term vision and goals. It may even be recommitting to an ongoing plan with a new perspective and energy or finding a different approach. Or you could even change your mind about how to pursue a goal or project and start something completely new. Do not impulsively make decisions because this month’s planetary influences also caution you to be careful when planning to accomplish new projects. If you are too unrealistic about your goals, this can cause many setbacks and disappointments. Slow down and make a checklist and implement a plan
For this New Moon the Tarot card Temperance is about bringing balance, patience and moderation into your life. It asks you to remain calm and patient, to manage your emotions even when life feels stressful, out of sorts or frantic. You are being invited to stabilize your energy and to allow the life force to flow through you without force or resistance. It’s time to recover your flow and get your life back into order and balance.

Temperance asks you to evaluate and re-examine the priorities you have chosen and then take the middle path and accommodate all perspectives. Be the peacekeeper and take a balanced and moderate approach, avoiding any extremes. It is about blending, mixing, combining diverse and separate elements to create something new and to include others to bring together groups of people to create harmony and cooperation. By working together, you will collectively leverage the right mix of talents, experiences, abilities and skills.
