This New Moon in Libra is conjunct Mars, which brings a courageous energy to move forward in your life with the emphasis on relationships. The Sun is also in Libra, so diplomacy and balance are highlighted. Mars is the mover and shaker; it gives the energy to get things done now. A predominant feature of this Libran focus is the interaction with others, one on one or publicly. Many of the planets have been retrograde for some time and now include Mercury. This continues the reflection on behaviours and patterns we consciously or unconsciously repeat from the past. Mars gives us the courage to move in another direction, make a conscious change that is truer to ourselves and our intention in relationships. There is a greater confidence to discuss openly, aided by the diplomacy that Libra offers… to solve or create solutions. Heated debates could emerge, so again take care with your responses, and use the Libran qualities that are strong at this time. Mercury retrograde allows ongoing discussions, back and forth and revisiting topics for a more considered approach and collaboration. These are opportunities to have a greater understanding of another perspective.
Venus is in its last degrees of Scorpio, some old fears may have been moved though to complete of a cycle of transformation. Now you can emerge with a greater sense of worthiness, integration, and confidence. This ties in with the New Moon since it symbolises new beginnings. On reflection of old goals (Mercury retrograde), Mars now motivates us to create a new plan or idea for changes in our life. Venus has a wide trine to Neptune and is sextile to Pluto; this enables a connection for bigger inspirations and deeper acceptance of gifts and skills within us. Once where you may have felt small, possibly due to the opinion of others; now there can be a “who cares” attitude and new confidence. It can be time to take a risk, but it is a balanced risk, a sense of power, a shift, an adventure, and uplifting ….it feels right so why not!
Chiron (the wounded healer) is retrograde, having 3 planets opposing, can create a lack of confidence, insecurities or simply afraid to make a mistake. These feelings may have come from the past, patterns or goals that has not worked before, creating a perceived limitation. Now is the time to do it differently, override the doubt and say yes and move forward…. there is balance to feel safe and take the risk.
