On October 16th, 2020, we have a New Moon at 23° Libra.
Libra is known for being the sign of peace and harmony, but will this New Moon in Libra bring us the ease and peace we desperately need?
No, it won’t.
… and that’s because the New Moon is square Saturn and Pluto in Capricorn AND is opposite Mars retrograde. That’s a lot of cardinal, action-on-steroids energy on the table!
New Moon In Libra – Just Do It
Best advice for the New Moon in Libra? Just do it. What if you don’t get the result you expect? Just do it again.
Normally, “Just do it” doesn’t sound much like Libra… we all know that Libra is more like “I’ll do it later” …
However, when we have so much cardinal energy, when the New Moon in Libra is under siege by an angry Mars in Aries, we have no choice but to act, or translated into Libra’s “air” language, to make a decision.
Of course, Libra hates being hurried into making decisions because she is so concerned with finding THE BEST decision.
However, since this New Moon is so cardinal, so fast, so furious, we will have no choice but get things going.
The New Moon in Libra is not only opposite a furious Mars retrograde, but it is also square Saturn and Pluto in Capricorn.
New Moon In Libra – Cardinal Action
Libra, Aries and Capricorn are all Cardinal signs.
By definition, Cardinal signs’ role is to pioneer, take action and to lead even when they have limited information, support, or evidence.
Cardinal signs (Aries, Cancer, Libra, Capricorn) are the masters of ambiguity, and the more cryptic the goal, the more relaxed the guidelines, the more enthusiastic and motivated they are to meet their goal – of course, “their way”.
“Yes, there were times, I’m sure you knew
When I bit off more than I could chew
But through it all, when there was doubt
I ate it up and spit it out
I faced it all, and I stood tall
And did it myyy waaay”
Paul Anka, the author of “My Way” had Moon in Libra and Mars in Aries. His song was made famous by Frank Sinatra, a Libra rising with Venus in Capricorn. Talk about “cardinal” ways.
At the New Moon in Libra, we have to act – despite confusion, difficulties, setbacks, or fear of failure.
New Moon In Libra – Purpose And Freedom
And while the New Moon in Libra is one of the difficult New Moons of the year, here are some reasons to look forward – or at least, not to fear – the upcoming New Moon in Libra:
- We are already ‘used’ to Mars retrograde, Saturn and Pluto. Yes, the New Moon in Libra will trigger Mars, Saturn and Pluto, but Mars, Saturn and Pluto have been triggered by so many other planets this year, that there is not much left for them to show us; in this context, the New Moon in Libra is more like ‘business as usual’
- Taking action is a good thing because movement = life. And sometimes we need stress, adrenaline, or a little ‘push’. This is something that people with Mutable, and especially Fixed energy can learn from Cardinal signs. You don’t have to push yourself all the time, but sometimes taking action under ambiguity will get you a long way
- One of the basic principles of astrology is that the Universe always works in our favor, so if we trust that whatever happens is for our own good, we’ll get there without the unnecessary struggle and control-freakness.
- The ruler of the New Moon, Venus makes harmonious aspects to Jupiter and Uranus so this New Moon in Libra will not only bring us pressure and tension; but also opportunities to liberate ourselves from stagnation, (re) discover our enthusiasm, and find a new sense of freedom.
