The Libra new moon (October 19th) is a time to attract into your life harmonious relationships, peace and harmony.  However Uranus is infusing this new moon in Libra therefore  it is about breaking free from old relationship patterns that feel restrictive and encouraging relationships that expand your life with new and different experiences.  Venus is now in Libra, and in its rulership, therefore it is ruling the Libra new moon, which means she, and what she stands for gets the last say. Venus in Libra wants harmony, balance, to enjoy life in artistic and social settings.


When thinking about what intentions you want to send forth during this new moon cycle contemplate what you want to attract in the Venus in Libra terms.

What art do I want to surround me?

How do I honor art?

Where do I want to go to experience art?

What social activities do I love most?

Are my relationships loving and harmonious?

What can I do to bring more peace into my world?

Is my life out of balance in any aspect, and if so how do I want to change it?

Do I have the relationships that I want in my life?

Are there any relationships where I compromise too much for the sake of peace?

This is the first of 14 new moons since Jupiter went into Scorpio on October 10th. There will be an undercurrent of getting on with life, the proverbial bucket list that is driving the embracing of wanting to get out and do things.  Mercury and Jupiter are hanging out together, Mercury in Scorpio is sometimes called the one who can think down and dirty. Critical thinking has a sharp edge to it in the undercurrent of the pretense of being nice in Libra land. Listen to your intuition and side step individuals who you know do not vibrate on a higher side of their being and have a way of giving under handed cruel comments in the guise of being funny, nonchalant or with the bully’s defense of joking or telling their version of how they see it.
