The final week of Libra season is highlighted, so to speak, by the new Moon. While the new Moon isn’t a time to begin anything — you should wait until it’s waxing — it is a time to set intentions and commit yourself to personal goals that express the positive qualities of the sign it is in.
In the case of Libra, you would work on your negotiating skills (don’t compromise on your needs, though) and view those you are in relationships with as teammates rather than enemies.
For Libra, partnership is everything. Due to the influence of retrograde Mars in Aries, however, and the Jupiter-Saturn-Pluto conjunction in Capricorn, interpersonal dealings may test your patience. Balance any challenges with a genuine desire to learn and grow, and you will find harmony.
March 21 – April 19
The Libra new Moon opposite your ruler Mars will stand forever as a testament to your inner fortitude. You can gracefully navigate the tricky waters of interpersonal communications if you don’t see them as a game of Battleship.
April 20 – May 20
With the new Moon in your sister sign, Libra, also ruled by Venus (who is opposite Neptune), you might deflate any expectations, especially in terms of relationships and negotiations, lest you get carried away.
May 21 – June 20
The freshly new Moon conjuncts your ruler Mercury in Scorpio, setting off any subtle sensitivities and malleable moods. Don’t let your perception become clouded by passing emotions. Use your words and speak from the heart.
June 21 – July 22
Your ruler, the Moon, is new in Libra, bringing attention to your interpersonal relationships and the needs you may or may not be addressing within them. Make a plan to speak your piece and follow through.
July 23 – Aug. 22
With the new Moon in Libra conjunct your ruler the Sun, you’ll want to lay out, rather dogmatically, a path toward peaceful compromise within your relationships. Don’t cower if faced with obstacles. Don’t roar, either.
Aug. 23 – Sept. 22
The new Moon in Libra goes conjunct overnight with your ruler Mercury in Scorpio. Emotions may not be your friend, but neither they nor those responsible for them are your enemy. Harmonize, don’t criticize.
Sept. 23 – Oct. 22
Despite your penchant for harmonizing opposites, you struggle more than most when integrating interpersonal feedback. Let the new Moon in your sign help you see your friends for what they really are — friends!
Oct. 23 – Nov. 21
With the new Moon conjunct Mercury in your sign, find space to negotiate with more grace than usual. Despite your Scorpio tendency for intensity, compromise is a soft-boiled egg. Crack it open gently.
Nov. 22 – Dec. 21
Despite the burden of ruler Jupiter’s conjunction to Pluto and Saturn, the new Moon in Libra lends an ease to your relationships, which you generally hold in high esteem. Push gently past any challenges.
Dec. 22 – Jan. 19
Ruler Saturn’s conjunction with Jupiter and Pluto can be expanding and yet maddening. Let the influence of the new Moon in Libra lend a helping hand to finding both balance and support in your relationships.
Jan. 20 – Feb. 18
Despite this Libra new Moon’s affinity for peaceful negotiations, its conjunction to Mercury opposite your ruler Uranus suggests a lack of patience for compromise. Expect the unexpected, and just go with it.
Feb. 19 – March 20
With Venus, steward of this week’s new Moon in Libra, opposite your ruler Neptune, ballooning expectations hit a snag as they get carried away like a wish on the wind. Give them some time to untangle.
