Moon Musings: New Moon in Libra (Oct 19th, 2017)

NEW MOON IN LIBRA 26 degrees

A New Moon in the sign of Libra will take place on October 19th, 2017. New Moons are a door opening from the Universe. YOU must lay seeds in this area of life AFTER it appears, depending on your sign (and rising sign) to receive the greatest change. The power of this New Moon lasts 9-12 days. The actions you take from October 19th – October 31st will likely come to fruition by March 31st, 2018 (plus or minus four days) depending on the success of your initial plans.

WHAT IS AN INTENTION/SEED? The Universe is made up of energy and it responds to movement. You push and pull things into your life depending on your actions and vibration. For instance, if you’re looking for a new job or career success, working on your resume, applying to new jobs, or taking a course to expand your certifications are ACTIONS that function as seeds to express your intention to the Universe. If you’re looking for love or a partner, socializing, asking your friends to set you up with potential dates, or reaching out to new/old flames causes reverberations out into the Universe. You needn’t “get that big job” or “find the true love” right away, it is merely showing the Universe that your spirit is open to that.

INTENTIONS/SEEDS DURING A NEW MOON: If a New Moon takes place in an area of your chart that is focused on love, it isn’t the best time to lay seeds for work. A different New Moon another time in the year would be best for that. That is why we study astrology – we look for the cycles that occur to see when the Universe is opening doors to us.

URANUS SHAKES THINGS UP: This New Moon will have a highly exciting, but potentially volatile energy that comes up. Uranus, the planet of surprise, chaos, and rebellion is directly opposed to this New Moon, which means that we will all be on our toes no matter what comes up. Keep your eyes open because amazing opportunities may arise – you may get that big breakthrough in the area of life the New Moon is affecting you. However, you may also have power struggles, restlessness, impatience, or drama that occurs due to it. I advise you to not make impulsive or emotional actions simply because you are feeling radical or intense. Breathe. Think about it. If you come from a more grounded place and you still think it is the best action to take, then go forth with it. But if you make a rash decision, it could turn a minor problem into a full-force explosion. It is wise that people in power do not rush forward with threats right now. Remember, this energy is taking place at the New Moon and will affect our lives in the area that it controls for the next six months to a year. Choose to operate out of love and compassion rather than violence, aggression, or pettiness.



Partnerships. Business. Marriage. "Becoming official." Longterm friendships. Unions. You can be blessed with all. This is a good time to assess what you want in a serious partner and what you do not. Make a list. If you have a partner (in business or love), use this time to talk about taking your union to the next level and how you can compromise and work better together. If it’s not going to work, it may be time to let that relationship go. Uranus has been in your sign for quite awhile causing the entire foundation of your life to be shaken up, but it will be leaving in 2018. Because of this, you may have been trying things a bit unconventional. Use this time to find out where you stand with your partners and if you do not have one, you may be drawn to one now. 


Work, work, work, work. You are a sign that loves to work and takes pride in your work – you often judge yourself on the success and reliability of your work, as well. Use this time to amplify your work life. Ask for more projects from employers. If you're self-employed, advertise and get your name out there. Ask for referrals. If you work for a business, make sure you're being seen by your superiors. You'll also be focusing on your fitness and daily rhythm. How do you balance your work-life? Anything to do with fitness/health is also in focus: wanna lose weight? Kick that bad habit? Quit smoking? Get on a plan. Meet a doctor. Stop waiting. Do it now. If you want to get a new job, this would be a time to be rocking out those resumes. Use this time well. Grind. It’ll pay off. 


Love, romance, fun, adventure, and creativity shine for you now. You'll be more attractive, so if you're single, get your face out there! Meet people. It's better to meet people through friends or socially rather than apps. (Apps can be helpful, but don't rely on them.) Plan some events. Some of you may be moving and changing up your lifestyle. Embrace every ounce of change that is coming. You're worth it. Also, there may be a focus on art projects and you may feel more inspired than any times past. Embrace that muse. It was meant for you. If you have children, they may be taking focus for you. Saturn has been causing a great deal of hardship, oppression, and difficulty for you in your 7th House (which rules partnerships in love or business and also enemies) for the last few years, but soon that darkness will pass by the end of this year and you will not see it again for nearly 29 years. Be kind with yourself, you deserve it.


The foundation of your life can change. The way you love yourself, self-love, as well as everything to do with family, home, your "chosen home/family," Mother/Father relationships, and anything to do with domestic matters will be apparent now. Jump on real estate if you can. Update your living space. Buy some new furniture, give a wall a fresh coat of paint, look for that perfect cooking set for you to entertain with. Being domestic is going to go well for you, now, so invite friends over or use this time to enjoy your home. Also, you’re going to be considering what truly makes you happy and if you have the things in your life you need, particularly self-respect and self-love. Look in the mirror and ask yourself: "Do I like myself? What do I truly need? What makes me happy? Am I on a path that is fulfilling emotionally?” Answer these questions truthfully.


Get ready to expand all areas of communication. Focus on advertising, social media, grow your presence online or with people, and anything ruled by communication will flourish. Meet new people. Reach out to new contacts. Ask others for new contacts. Submit a resume. If you want a job in any of these areas listed, get it, because you can. Writing. Agencies. Contracts. It's all lighting up. The time is now. Lay the seeds. Both Venus and Mars will be in this area of your life soon, so you will see a lot of focus on this over the coming weeks.


Whether or not we want to love money, money is how we survive. Luckily for you, money seems to be about to come in – or ways to generate more of it. Increase your income by looking for better jobs or by asking for a raise. Show you're qualified. Update that resume. Also focus on the things you "own," especially your possessions. People are not possessions, but if you look at people in that way, make sure they're yours, dependent on you, and you will lock that down. What do you own? Make sure it's yours to stay -- because it can be. If you're looking to buy things, you're likely to have luck.


This New Moon is ALL ABOUT YOU, dear Libra, and that means you are in the spotlight. Use this time to evaluate who you are, what you want, and where you are going. You can utilize the power of this New Moon in any way you’d like, but it is the only New Moon to fall in your sign until October 8th, 2018. Use this time to analyze how you want to shine – and then go for it! Put yourself out there. Get a fresh new haircut, wardrobe, or style. Start that project that’s been on the backburner that you’ve always wanted to pursue. Become the person you were meant to be. The Universe is open to you right now – even though Uranus could be cooking up some surprising or shocking events – but you are one that is always able to roll with the punches. If you birthday falls two days before or after October 19th, this will be a BIG year for you. It will be one with lots of new beginnings, new relationships, and you will see how this year marks a major change for your life. You may move to a new home or city or see a huge shift in your lifestyle and view of the world. This will also occur if you have 26 degrees Libra as an Ascendant/Rising Sign (plus or minus four degrees). Be ready! Here it comes. 


All things that are hidden and growing will soon come to light for you. Your time is coming. Every dream, fire, desire, and focus is in your scope now. Things may come out that you've long hidden or things that have been hidden by other people, so be aware. This New Moon will "clear out" the past year, and get you ready to finally shine. Lay any seed you want to germinate slowly. It will need more time than most. Lay your biggest endeavors at the next new Moon, November 18th, 2017 (26 degrees Scorpio), so use this time to release the past, let go of pain and enemies, and realize that, Scorpio, it's all about you. Recently, Jupiter moved into your sign and started a powerful, profound trend that will see you launching a whole new life over the next 13 months. If you haven’t read this article, make sure to check it out here.


Your dreams and aspirations, as well as friends, are heating up. What do you want long-term and how do you get it? Think about that vision you've always wanted. Make a plan. You're good at that. Create the steps. Make it possible. This can cover any area of life. However, you're about to heat up a lot of social fun, and you're likely to find these dreams align with new people you meet, so say YES to your social engagements and watch your coming year light up with stronger friendships and ferocity. Saturn has been in your sign for the last few years but will be leaving you to enter Capricorn (and make you take responsibility when it comes to finances, wealth, and money matters for three years) by the end of this year. You’ve had a major “learning curve” over the last few years about who you are, where you stand, and how to mature. Hopefully you’ve learned your lessons, and while it may have been hard, you will be a happier and stronger person because of it.


Your career was lit on fire this past year (since September 2016) and you were crowned in glory. Jupiter was in Libra during this entire time and made it so every door was open to you, your name would be showered in lights, and people everywhere were watching you with attention (for good or for worse). While Jupiter has left this area and will not return to bless your career again for 12 years, this New Moon will help lay a pattern for you that will last six months to a year. Send resumes. No updated resume yet? Do it now. And make sure you make a list of some top candidates you want to apply to. Search out anyone and anything that can improve your power, public recognition, and status in your life. Sometimes, this even means aligning yourself with people or partners in order to create united power. If you want a public marriage, relationship, or business engagement, this would be the time to lay that forward now. Good luck. Saturn, the planet of responsibility, hardship, and maturation will be entering your sign for three years by the end of this year. This is a long trend, so do everything in your power to rise now before things become heavier (for better and for worse).


Grow your mind, expand your horizons, and travel are open roads to you now. Academics, spirituality, and media can be blessings to you. Find ways to better yourself by looking at how you are connected to the greater world. Join groups. Fine tune skills. Find mentors. Ask for help. This is a pivotal moment to get your life together before you are about to ramp up to career momentum at the next New Moon (in Scorpio, on November 18th). Jupiter was in Libra allowing you to expand your horizons from September 2016 until October 10th, 2017, so you are familiar with these trends. Use what you learned then to lay further seeds now. You’re on the rise, dear Aquarius. You’re ready for it.


Anything to do with deep union is in focus. Loans. Joint bank accounts and businesses. Combined projects and ownership. Sexuality, especially when it is not in balance. Secrets. Things that are not equal. This will be a time where you can forge stronger unions and start new ones. Money is likely to be in focus for many of you. The biggest thing you'll be thinking about is: what do you owe me? What do I owe you? Make sure that you open yourself to deeper connections and to giving and receiving in more fulfilling ways. However, do not take on more “debt” than you can give back – remember, balance in partnerships, however you establish them, is key.
