New Moon in Libra: Relationship Ready + Remedy
The moon will be new in the sign of Libra this Saturday, September 28, at 1:26 pm CST. New moons occur when the sun and moon are in the exact same sign at the exact same degree. This is called a conjunction in astrology.
New moons are great for making wishes and setting new intentions, and since Libra rules relationships and marriage, this would be the perfect new moon to make wishes around relationships. The intentions you set this week could be about manifesting a new relationship or maybe healing a current relationship.
Working with rose quartz this week would enhance any work you’re doing around love and relationships. Whether you’re single or in a relationship, our love lives get a boost during this new moon as Venus—the goddess of love—makes a nice aspect to Jupiter—the planet of good fortune and expansion. If you’re single you could meet someone, and if you’re coupled and having problems, you could find a solution this weekend.
The tarot card associated with this particular new moon is the Two of Swords. This is the flip side of the new moon in Libra—the avoidance of conflict. This is the ultimate “people pleasing” card. The card image in the traditional Rider-Waite-Smith deck is a woman sitting on a bench at night in front of the ocean. She is blindfolded and holds two swords crossed over her chest. The traditional meaning of this card is indecision and a stalemate. The blindfold represents her unwillingness to look her current reality in the face. She is faced with a difficult decision because either option brings pain. This card is about facing impending conflict rather than preserving the status quo and keeping others happy.
Saturn in the First House: Face Your Fear
Looking at the chart for the new moon in Libra, Saturn—the planet of karma and restrictions—is placed in the astrological first house of self and identity. The effects of Saturn in the first house include facing our fear of asserting ourselves and asking for what we want. The big question is: what do you want? Not, what does your spouse or a parent want for you, but what do you want for yourself? If you’ve been people pleasing or playing nice to keep the peace with others, taking the lid off your desires can be scary.
