Libra New Moon--How do you relate?
Libra New Moon

4 Libra 00
It is a tough New Moon. But if we are focused on the glass being half full we can all get through it not too bruised. As always you can find my full article on Margaret Wendt's site.
But here is a snippet.
We are put on notice that all Libra New Moons between 2008 and 2023 and in particular between 2011 and 2017 could be under tremendous stress. With Pluto in Capricorn (till 2023) and Uranus in Aries (till 2017) the Libra New Moons have a potential to both square Pluto and Oppose Uranus. I say potential because NOT every Libra new moon will make aspects to Pluto/Uranus. Some will be free and clear of the harshness. Yeah, that is great but it is not this New Moon. Nope, this new moon is smack in the middle of the rough aspects. Yeesh. Wasn’t the Cancer New Moon rough enough? Sigh. Apparently not.
Libra is the opposite of Aries. In Aries we are (rightfully) concerned with self. That is why we build our treasure maps on Aries moon because we are focused on number one. Now at Libra we are halfway through the zodiac and ready to focus on relationships. Our marriages and partnership are all in view. How are they looking?
Libra seeks balance and relishes negotiation. If someone says ‘black’ and another says, ‘white,’ Libra will look for the ‘grey’. God bless Libra, they are always trying to find the equilibrium in a very agitated world. And above all they spend a great deal of their time focused on equality and it is usually Libra who says, “That’s not fair.”
Pluto in Capricorn while squaring Uranus in Aries continues to put pressure on our commerce and government. Banks and stock markets continue to crack, businesses deflate and money tightens. We’ve been slogging through this since 2008 and are perhaps getting numb to the mess. But on this Libra cycle may see cracks and fissures in our marriages and partnerships. Things may not feel fair or balanced. How much do our relationships have to bend and sway to the powers greater than it? It is hard on all of us. How do we take it out on others? And also with this Libra cycle we may learn on many levels that cooperation is good economics. Again, both personally and globally.
Then there is Uranus in Aries who wants to disconnect from any yoke and run off wildly into new horizons and break new ground as we reinvent ourselves. This too will impact us, “How can I seek new ground while maintain my marriage?” “Why are my relationships bugging me?” And if you are thinking, “Hey, I’m not married I guess I get the all-clear this month.” You would be wise to remember you are in relationship. Plenty of them. The relationship with your house, the relationship with your friends, the relationship with your body, the relationship with your money, the relationship with your family. Quite simply: How you ‘relate’ is put on notice. Are you the controller? Are you the victim? Are you impotent? Are you forceful? Are you the cheerleader? Are you detached? Do these approaches serve you? Perhaps the answer is yes, perhaps it is no, but all us will be challenged for 28 days and by the end of the cycle we may decide to change many of our approaches.
