A New Moon in peace-loving Libra occurs on Monday, October 12, 2015, at 8:06 PM EDT. Libras are children of Venus and excel in any situation where social grace is needed. With this potent Libra energy, this is a cycle in which balancing our close personal relationships becomes an urgent desire. Venus and Uranus are in dynamic aspect today, and we could be experiencing unusual attractions to people and things or situations. For some, the urge to merge may be nearly irrepressible.
“Be quick to cooperate in the good and obvious ways that present themselves to you in the days and weeks ahead. Winds of change will be blowing us into the arms of people most suited to stimulate our spiritual evolution. When you meet these new faces and make these new connections wonder what the higher, perhaps secret purpose is for your contact.” -Salvador Russo
This lunation is also opposed by Uranus, igniting an unexpected turn of events. Something may be seen in a new light. While this is unpredictable energy, changes now can create fresh opportunities that can add to our sense of joy and freedom. Freeing up emotional space allows new energy into our lives. Affirm in the positive what you want to attract.
This phase of the Moon occurs at 19 degrees and 20 minutes of Libra, affecting people born with personal planets and points at 15 to 23 degrees of the cardinal signs (Aries, Cancer, Libra, and Capricorn) most significantly.
