New Moon in Libra: The Power of Love in Turbulent Times - Oct 2020

NEW MOON IN LIBRA - October 16th, 2020, 3:31pm EST

NOUVELLE #LUNE EN #BALANCE - Le 16 octobre, 2020, à 15h31 EST

Featuring T-Square aspect, Mars Rx & Mercury Rx

 

On the New Moon phase of the lunation cycle, we have an opportunity to set an aim, plan or intention for the next 1-6 months.


As Luna travels through the backdrop of the 12 Zodiac signs, she lands in different Zodiac signs on each New Moon. I personally love to draw inspiration from the #Zodiac signs to guide intention setting. I teach you how to do this in the Lunar Lifestyle Guide.

On Oct 16, 2020 at 3:31pm EST, we are working with the medicine of the New Moon at 23 degrees of Libra.

However, this New Moon may not feel like typical Libra energy as both the Sun & #Moon will be making square aspects (conflict) to Pluto, Jupiter & Saturn in #Capricorn AND oppositions (tension, compromise) to Mars Rx, Eris and Lilith in Aries. This forms what we call a T-Square aspect between Libra, Aries and Capricorn - similarly to what we experience on the Full Moon in Aries a couple weeks ago. Check out my blog about it here.

On top of this...


With #Mars being in #retrograde in its home sign of #Aries from Sept 9 to Nov 14 2020, our actions and plans take a halt as we take check on what we really desire, what triggers us and how we react, make decisions and manage anger & impatience.

#Mercury also went retrograde in #Scorpio on Oct 13 2020; giving an extra intuitive, reflective and emotional current to our mental circuits and communication activities. Revisiting and re-evaluating our relationship with the other and the power it yields - for better or worse.


At the same time, Mercury will be making an opposition to #Uranus in #Taurus… Sudden awakenings and new perspectives may arises. Mercury will then retrograde into #Libra on Oct 23 before it stations direct on Nov 3 2020; helping us re-establish balance and harmony in our partnerships.

Individually, we are working with the dynamics between partnerships/relationships, our individual needs, our financial security/career and power dynamics. Collectively, we can see this playing out with COVID-19 as well our relationship with the government/institutions and the way we treat the earth. This may also be a reflection of our relationship to ourselves… Much needed mirrors.
