Such Great Heights: New Moon in Libra
The New Moon in Libra on September 28, 2019 gives us a fresh start in partnerships. And also an opportunity for a fuller life experience.
Venus will harmoniously sextile Jupiter this new moon. Sextiles are flirty aspects; they don’t actually connect but have chemistry and acknowledge the spark. The two planets harmonizing like this tempt us with expansion through love and love through expansion. Libran themes of beauty, harmony, balance, refinement and justice still prevail, but our curiosity for growth and the unknown is too tantalizing to ignore.
As the cool breeze of autumn clears anything that’s not really thriving, relationships now may change or end. Organically and swiftly, we may find ourselves with more space. Without the insulation of the familiar, we might start to feel cooler along with the weather.
But Venus sweetens the bitter and Jupiter warms it. Their configuration this new moon can make magic happen: Love and expansion, winking at each other across the dark sky.
As above, so below…
If you’re in a relationship, you may expand with your mate. Maybe you’ll travel or take up a course of study together. Maybe you’ll start a family. Maybe you’ll go into business and your work will reach all four corners of the world.
If not with your partner, you may want to expand with someone else now. This doesn’t mean an affair, necessarily; it could be like going on an amusement ride with another who wants to as well.
If you’re looking for a relationship now — and arguably it’s the best time to do so — you may opt for someone with whom you can really grow. Having completely different worldviews might make it the freshest match.
Your backgrounds and interests may parallel, or in some ways they will but in other ways they won’t. It doesn’t matter: so long as you’re able to expand together, these autumn winds will propel you to where you’ve never been before.
