In the wise words of Stormi Webster, “Patience! Patience! Patience!”
Let’s be real. At this point, we’re well aware that 2020 is closing out with intense transits that are cosmically allowing for the vibration of the collective to shift into a higher consciousness. This Libra new moon wants to come in and help us balance out these energies. But, she has some tough contenders weighing in with this lunar cycle.
Here’s what’s going on in the sky…
This Libra new moon is opposite Mars in Aries, and she (Moon) also squares both Pluto and Saturn. Basically, this means you will experience impulsive moments, maybe some power struggle dynamics, and the opportunity to revisit old habits. Don’t forget, we just started Mercury retrograde who now joins Mars, Neptune and Uranus who are also stationed retrograde. Okay cool, so what’s a retrograde? These planets are consciously slowing down the energy in the cosmos for us to follow their lead and honor the understanding that going slow is okay. It’s the classic story of the tortoise and the hare. Don’t gas yourself out trying to accomplish everything all at once with this Libra new moon.
Yes, take that exciting new opportunity! Begin that new project! However, be mindful to practice patience, be understanding of others during this time, and opt for assertiveness over aggression. Libra is an air sign, and she prefers harmony. She doesn’t like having anyone dislike her. This new moon energy can encourage us to approach situations from a balanced perspective. You might make peace with people, places and things in your life that have reached their expiration date. Allow yourself growth as you decide to embark on a continued journey of inner peace.
Find out what this Libra new moon will bring for you and partake in the below new moon ritual if you feel called to do so.
🌙New Moon Ritual 🌙
This Libra new moon we will want to balance out the heart chakra.
Use the following crystals for heart chakra assistance:
Amazonite, Green Calcite, Malachite, Rhodonite, or Rose Quartz.
Step 1: Purify your crystal stone with white light, sound vibration or smudging with juniper, lavender or rosemary.
Step 2: Write out your intention for how you will connect with your heart chakra during this transit when you are presented with the opportunity to act out of imbalanced ego, or unconditional love of understanding and patience.
Step 3: Read your intention aloud to self and ask your higher self to help you with receiving and embodying this intention over the next two weeks of this new moon in Libra.
Step 4: Place your written intention in a safe area like a personal altar and place your chosen stone on top of it. Ask the consciousness of the crystal to connect with the highest good of your intention to amplify its efforts.
Step 5: Give gratitude or prayer to your higher power, spirit team, ancestors, and The Universe for the ability to have conscious awareness of your actions and to transmute low vibrational behaviors through forgiveness and empathy. Conclude. You can spend as long as you need to.
Step 6: You will read or connect with your intention either in the morning or evening at least once a week or daily for optimal accountability in the manifestation process until the Taurus full moon Oct. 31.
Reminder: You can recite this intention any time of day when you feel you need to harness your energy in moments of conflict.
Horoscopes: Read your horoscope based off your rising sign (ascendant) or sun sign in the zodiac.
Aries (March 21 – April 19)
You might feel extra sensual this transit and that’s totally normal Aries. Mars, your ruling planet, is retrograde at the moment and he can create some emotional pent up energy for you. Find a positive physical outlet for this energy during this time. This could spice things up in the bedroom for you! It can also lead to the opportunity to compromise in relationships and reach a new level of awareness in partnerships. You’re going to experience this new moon heavily compared to other signs because of your Cardinal sign energy.
Taurus (April 20 – May 20)
This Libra energy is bringing you back into balance. Lately, you might have been very focused on your sense of self and now you’re remembering all the goodness that comes from sharing your bounty. You might feel inspired to give back some way or make contributions to your community. You’re being reminded that there’s no “I” in team. Your competitive mindset is either going to be heightened or cooled down. Stronger together is the motto.
Gemini (May 21 – June 20)
Be careful Gemini. You might end up unknowingly whisking people off their feet and having multiple suitors this transit–you won’t know how to get yourself out of this mess! Have fun, but make sure you’re in it for the right reasons and not to fluff up the ego. This is a wonderful time to use that childlike enthusiasm by beginning a new project. For those of you who have been working on a longtime project, expect to finally close it out. There could be some news about reaching legal settlements as well.
Cancer (June 21 – June 22)
Work-life balance has been on your mind for months, Cancer. Now you’re at your wits end, having realized that you need to create healthy habits and boundaries in both areas of your life. You’ve been hyper focused on your career this year, and this new moon is asking you to slow down. Spend time with family. Take up a new activity with family that allows you to reconnect and build stronger bonds as a unit. Libra’s diplomatic energy will require you to prioritize your time where it's needed. You might end up having to help mitigate family disputes, as well.
Leo (June 23 – Aug 22)
As a fixed sign Leo, you’re going to be juggling a lot this Libra new moon with the added pressure of Mercury retrograde in Scorpio. Libra knows how to delegate and you’ll need to do just that. Allow yourself to receive help from others. You’re realizing that you can’t do it all, and actually, you don’t want to do it all for sake of your sanity. Find ways to free up time in your schedule in order to capitalize off this lunar cycle. Stay on top of any contracts or important information that needs to be submitted. Give yourself extra time to sign off on important paperwork and be sure to get your voting ballot in as soon as possible–there’s urgency for Leos in this area.
Virgo (Aug 23 – Sep 22)
Add some cushion time in your daily work routine. You’re going to feel out of sorts because your ruling planet Mercury is retrograde in Scorpio. You might feel dazed and confused and completely ungrounded since we’re adding in Libra, an air sign, with this new moon. Get extra sleep these next two weeks even if that means going to bed earlier than normal (those extra Z’s will help you perform at your best). You might be forgetful during this transit so make sure you ask a colleague or person you trust to follow-up with you on important matters or have them review your work before submitting anything. You might want to re-analyze your spending habits, Virgo. You could overspend this cycle as well. The choice is yours.
Libra (Sep 23 – Oct 22)
Happy Birthday, Libra! This is your moon, baby. Doesn’t it feel good? Your intuition is going to be at its peak this new moon, so trust it. You’ve been sitting on a personal revolution for months. You’ve been feeling the urge to create change in your personal life, your career and in your identity. Now, you’re feeling like you’re ready to put yourself out there with this brave and bold new calling. Go for it, Libra. Try something new. You deserve a new beginning. Make sure you take practical steps to make it happen because success or recognition won’t happen overnight. It’s worth the risk. Your song this new moon? Patti LaBelle’s “New Attitude.”
Scorpio (Oct 23 – Nov 21)
You’re ready to walk away from anything no longer serving you. Your ruling planet of Pluto is square this new moon, and it’s causing internal friction. Additionally, Mercury is retrograde in your sign. You have a personal transformation brewing. Symbolically, you’re going through your Death period and ready to come out as the caterpillar, Scorpio. There might be conflicts with others that arise, but this is a chance for you to work on your zen. Do not react, Scorpio. Release the need for control, to be right, and balance the ego. Old patterns will arise for you to karmically pass your tests since Saturn is playing alongside Pluto square this new moon. This is a transit about balancing your throat chakra and your solar plexus. You got this!
Sagittarius (Nov 22 – Dec 21)
Have you checked your screen time lately? Ease off the online interactions and social networks. Time to reconnect with nature. Before you checkout from social media, make sure you back your data, Sag. You might have some tech problems the most out of all the signs in this new moon. Save your drafts. Don’t get caught lurking. Connect with friends, as they will help ground you. You’ll find yourself inspired to build out your new vision board for 2021 and work on your hopes for the year to come. Start planning ahead and have fun with it. Create a power playlist, stockpile on all the glitter and prints, and let your creativity inspire you.
Capricorn (Dec 22 – Jan 19)
This is a time to re-evaluate where you’re at in your profession. You’ve been working hard, Cap. But, right now, it’s okay to enjoy where you’re at. The feminine energy within us sometimes feels excluded in pursuit of professional success. This is going to take time and allow yourself to listen to your inner voice. Not everything needs to be aggressive or immediate. That’s the key to tapping into more success. Be happy with where you are. Less is more. More is outside of self.
Aquarius (Jan 20 – Feb 18)
You’re feeling enlightened about a new idea. First, you need to be the student before you can be the teacher. Take time to enroll in new courses or studies to make this idea come to life. Arm yourself with the resources needed. There’s also a need to come back to center and balance your energies with this new moon. You’ve been steamrolling all of 2020, and you might have taken on other’s opinions, ideologies and battles as your own. Aquarius, you’re admired for your independent, off the cusp, out-of-this-world approach to life. We need your extraterrestrial insight to help us see the current state of our world from a higher perspective. Do that through your art, projects, writings and voice – wherever you thrive. Try not to consume too much media at this time.
Pisces (Feb 19 – March 20)
You might have some hiccups with insurance or healthcare at this time. Make sure you’re not paying extra when it comes to bills. There’s an opportunity to invest your money into new property, or you might receive some unexpected inheritance. Finances will be an integral influence for you this new moon. You might be receiving deep insight through your dreams, daydreams, and meditations at this time. Take these messages into account, as you’ll be the most psychic out of all the zodiac signs this transit. Honor your emotions; they’re intelligent messages of consciousness from your higher self.
