The Libra New Moon is highly social,
communicative, and supports you in focusing on relationships. The New Moon is a time of beginnings, starting over, and brings in fresh perspectives. It’s a good time to begin new projects and set new intentions.
The Libra New Moon takes place
on October 8, 2018 at 11:46 pm EDT (8:46 pm PDT). With a New Moon, the sun and moon are in the same astrology sign. The Moon in Libra, represents your emotional side, and inspires a sense of belonging, and connecting deeply with others. It fulfills your emotional desire to belong to a relationship, partnership, community, or cause. The Sun in Libra represents a softening of the ego so you experience peaceful and synergistic relationships. Although it’s an airy and dreamy new moon, it also has a strong new beginning with four planets in Cardinal signs.
Inspiration and Balance
Libra is an air sign, which inspires new thoughts and perhaps moves you in new directions. It supports building relationships, finding common ground, and seeking equality in relationships. It helps you in seeing power struggles and overcoming engaging in them. The Libra New Moon reminds you to find balance – where are you giving or taking too much? How can you personally be more balanced so you’re more available in all of your relationships? Since Libra emphasizes balancing relationships, the New Moon is an important one to take a step back from how you relate to everyone and everything around you to determine if they are serving or hindering your progress.
The New Moon is a time to plant new seeds and create new beginnings. Typically the energy around the new moon feels calmer as the sun and moon are in the same astrological sign. The Libra New Moon will have a boost of power behind it as there are five planets in cardinal signs – Pluto and Saturn in Capricorn, and Sun, Moon and Mercury in Libra. These planets in cardinal signs help you get things going. It helps initiate something. Have you been inspired to begin a new project? This Libra New Moon may give you the boost you need to make it happen.

Libra also helps liberates unhealthy elements in relationships such as control, dominance, and possessiveness. As you observe yourself in relationships, notice areas where these elements are prevalent. Take time to set healthy boundaries and reclaim your personal power. The Libra New Moon also provides freedom and independence by releasing unhealthy attachment to others and relationships,so you rise to a higher vibe.
Find peace in yourself, your relationships, and with others. Since you are in relationships with everyone and everything, take note of what and who makes you feel good and when you feel not so good. Soften how you see yourself, and how you see other. Communicate how you feel without degrading or blaming others. By approaching yourself and others with the gentleness, caring, and compassion Libra provides you’ll boost your confidence and strengthen relationships. Libra is also about beautifying yourself, your home, and your life. Take time for self-care and beautify yourself. Find something everyday about yourself that helps you see your beauty. As you engage in this activity you’ll see the beauty around you and in others, expanding feelings of love.
Other Cosmic Influences
Venus the planet of love, money, and personal values, rules Libra. It is a powerful influence with this Libra New Moon because it goes retrograde on October 5th until November 16th. This is a time to assess what you value, how you value yourself, and others. When a planet is retrograde it’s a reminder to slow down and take note of what is shifting during this time, without overreacting. Venus rules both Libra and Taurus. So it is very symbolic that it will be retrograde during the Libra New Moon and the Taurus Full Moon later in October. Since it rules love and money, it will be an important time to review your relationship with yourself and perhaps set aside time for self-care. Also, it’s a good time to update your relationship with money, set new moolah goals, and perhaps shift past patterns and programming related to money so you get different results.
Libra and the Heart Chakra
Libra rules the “high-heart” or authentic heart. The Libra New Moon may provide a wake-up call to your soul’s desires. It’s time to let go of the longing of the mind, and tune into the inner voice. This is a time to make new connections with different people. Who will you meet by trying new things and going new places? This revolutionary new moon also provides an opportunity to revitalize existing relationships. Think about how you have become complaisant in your relationships by expecting others to act in a particular way. This creates staleness and dullness to any relationship. What if you softened your perceptions and really look at the person with fresh eyes. We are all in a state of change and growth. Where can you break from of the rigidity and boredom of relationships and see something new about that person or situation? This requires letting go of your past perceptions, seeing the subtle nuances that are transitioning, and then fostering the changes you notice. Trust your first instinct. Do you feel inspired to speak up? Then do it. Do you feel inspired to think about or process something? Then do it. Do you typically respond with panic? Take a deep breath and remind yourself to tap into the truth of what you’re feeling in the moment and then follow it.
Restoring Balance -Tools for the Libra New Moon
– Essential oils are a powerful tool that support opening the heart and helping restore love and trust within yourself, and learning to trust others. Two of my favorite oils for the Libra New Moon are Ylang Ylang and doTERRA’s Anchor Blend. We have all experienced betrayal and perhaps still harbor feelings of resentment. These two oils applied over the heart help restore feelings of trust and opening up to love. Join us right after the New Moon call for a short class (Good Vibe Oil Tribe) about essential oils and how they support us – mentally, physically, emotionally, and spiritually, or click HERE to read about them.
– Yoga poses: such as camel pose, cobra, eagle, triangle pose, and cat/cow poses help open restrictive energy within the heart and restore flow. Poses such as tree pose and other standing poses help you practice and strengthening your balance. Use essential oils over the heart prior to yoga or meditation to enhance your practice and open you up to receive more.
– Gratitude Journal: spend time writing about all the things you’re grateful for and feel the gratitude within your body.
– Forgiveness Journaling: One of the most powerful practices you can adopt is that of forgiving ourselves and others. It only hurts you to hold onto resentments, lowering your frequency and ability to attract what you want. Write a letter to someone you need to forgive. Tell them how you feel and either send it to them or burn it.
– Joy list: Make a list of things that bring you joy. Then every few days do something off your list to help your ego/mind see that you “in-joying” life.
