New Moon In Libra – 28th September 2019
“Balance is a feeling derived from being whole and complete; it’s a sense of harmony. It is essential to maintaining quality in life and work”. Joshua Osenga
This time of year, everything is blooming. The air is heavy with the scent of flowers, native and otherwise and the ground is a carpet of such bright colours, we almost don’t know where to look first. The bees are busy, the earth is full of life and the sky has had a fresh coat of paint. The nights are getting shorter, the days are getting warmer and the winter garments are being folded away in the darkness of cupboard drawers, replaced with shorter sleeves and brighter colours that tease of the summer days to come.
September 28th marks the time of this month’s New Moon, which falls under the sign of Libra. It is also a Super Moon and follows closely after the Spring or Vernal Equinox on 23rd September in Australia.
This New Moon in Libra is an important one for setting up your future. To explain this, we need to look at the recent opposition of Venus and Chiron that occurred on 17th September. The Venus-Chiron opposition was exact at 4° Libra (Venus’ home sign) and 4° Aries (new beginnings in healing). 4° indicates a new structure being put in place for solid growth that is based on healing, love, security and wealth. Most importantly, Venus opposite Chiron is a reminder that you have access to the healing power of the solar system and the stars. This is deep! Your values are entering a spiritualisation process – so you are more receptive now than ever to a higher standard of love and divinity. Romantic and platonic relationships (Venus) are undergoing a shift towards embracing spiritual values as well.
This New Moon will look beautiful in the night sky – it is closer to earth and will appear larger than normal, which is why it is called a Super Moon. Occurring at 5º Libra this is a magical opportunity for us to stabilise these profound changes. This foundation of strength and harmony will be with us for many years into the future. Yes, this is long term.
With 6 planets in cardinal signs we are being so supported by the cosmos in our visions and hopes and dreams. Pure intentions from the higher levels can be earthed now. Overall the energy is asking us to find our balance (Libra carries the symbol of the scales after all). So, gather your thoughts for the future and allow them to flood your heart with happiness. This is a time for soul-centered changes which will flow through into our lives in the years to come. And be comfortable with the fact that these changes are already there for you to acknowledge and accept, for you have been working on them for a long time!
The personality of people born under the zodiac sign of Libra belong to the Air element and are respectful, artistic, civilised and romantic, whilst also being gullible, opinionated and promiscuous. Librans love people and they love to be near people. Their homes are a place of love and laughter; with people coming and going and stopping for tea and a chat. The Libran is a brilliant storyteller and is never happier than when sitting at their kitchen table with a cup of coffee, tea or wine and connecting with those around them.
During this Libran New Moon, you may have a strong need for balance and harmony. When coming out of winter, everything can be a little out of balance and it can take a while to find your feet, both emotionally and physically. Ask if something doesn’t feel right. Learn to share your good and bad feelings and do not be afraid of who you really are, despite what is expected of you.
Spring and New Moon come together in perfect harmony as the time for new beginnings. Take joy in the life that is bursting around you, listen to the Magpies’ ancient warbles of long-lost days and don’t be afraid of disturbing the peace. Take some time to dust off the cobwebs that may be clouding your better judgement and try to see things as they really are. Balance and harmony may only be achieved when you find peace. And peace can only be achieved when you accept who you are way down in the places only you have ever seen.
