A New Moon that’s like a frozen wedding cake takes place on the night of the 28th of September, in the Sign of Libra.
Each new moon is a marriage of the Sun and the Moon and this one happens in the “marital” Sign of Libra. This is a Moon that stirs within us a need for belonging to another person. For being not one, but two.
So Roses? New Lovers? Shopping and a wedding dress rehearsal? Is this what we should expect?
No, no, no…
This New Moon in Libra may bring a focus on relations and romance but in a more reverse way than usual.
It is a New Moon that reminds us of a simple truth — that the key to a successful relationship is not to be in one for the sake of it.
Feelings of incompetence may surface during the time of this New Moon.
Either single or within a relationship, we cannot escape a numbness in feelings and a bittersweet longing that is coming from the edge of the deep green sea of the unconscious.
Karmic cleansing is also present in this New Moon as we now come to realise lessons that have to do with past immature behaviours, choices… or indecisiveness.
Yes, with this New Moon in Libra a deeply felt need to be in a relationship, to belong, is strong while at the same time we know that although we desire one we must not have it just for the sake of it. We know that it is not good to simply stay in a relationship because we are afraid to move on.
This New Moon wants to heal and evolve us, that is why it has this bittersweet feeling.
So the key under this New Moon is pause for a moment to listen to your inner world. Do not tune with others or with what others want from you.
Seek not for the conventional relationship or compromise but just hear your inner truth, in a marriage of heart and mind. Feel and Understand.
Having done this, all relationship manners will eventually come easy.
