The energy of this New Moon is that of change. Libra rules over appearances, specifically the many faces we wear and the deceptive old adage that “nothing is at it seems.” Libra energy looks to balance the desire for truth with the desire for security. How comfortable are you in your life? Why are you enduring discomfort when you have the power to change? Are the seductive lies you’re telling yourself worth more to you than your own happiness? It’s during this New Moon that we are being called to modernize our lives.
Sun square Pluto- a strong desire to control coming from the old withering away
Sun quincunx Neptune- your eyes are playing tricks on you
Moon conjunct Ceres- self care
Ceres square Pluto- the outside clashing with the inside
Libra energy refines and with her ruler Venus in retrograde in Scorpio it’s more about Redecorating. Think of your life right now as a room. What does it look like? Is it cluttered? Is it empty? Do you feel comfortable and secure in it? Or does it make you want to leave? If I had to guess, I would say it’s looking a little vintage right now. Venus retrograde is dusting off those boxes of old memories and pains and is putting them under the window to allow the sunlight to shine upon them.
A New Moon in Libra is the time when we feel most unlike ourselves. We’re going back and forth between the past and the present, inspiration and regret, acceptance and denial. This is so we can get better in touch with ourselves. Since Libra is such a visual energy, the way to bring some beauty and charm back into your life is by changing the way you look at things. Maybe that old tattered armchair just needs some reupholstery? Or maybe that mirror needs a new frame? What about a fresh coat of paint on the walls? The cosmic climate is not conducive for massive life altering changes right now. But what is supportive is the acknowledgement that everything has a purpose and that is what true homeostasis is…turning what seems like trash into treasure.
