New Moon in Libra September 2022: New Ways of Relating

On September 25, 5:54 PM ET, we experience a New Moon at 2º48’ of Libra that invites us to discover new ways of relating, with both others and ourselves. 

New Moons are all about beginnings and they inaugurate the start of a new cycle of growth. The Moon is still invisible from our perspective, emphasizing the importance of turning inward to be able to set intentions and plant seeds from an aligned and conscious place. This month, the Moon meets the Sun in the sign of the Scales, beginning a cycle centered around mastery of the realm of relationships. 


New Moon in Libra: Karmic Encounters & Synchronicities


Libra is the seventh Zodiac sign and the first one through which we enter the social sphere as equals, beginning the process of integration into the collective that unfolds as we progress through the second half of the Zodiac. At the Libra stage of our evolutionary journey, we learn that relationships are an essential part of life: we gain awareness of the way we participate in connections and, by exploring that, we learn more about ourselves through a process of comparison. We objectively recognize what is fair and we establish adjustments that increase harmony, equality, and balance, exploring how to achieve win-win solutions that enhance everyone’s reality and experience.

New Moon in Libra September 2022

The Libra New Moon could be a time of karmic encounters and fated meetings: connections that begin now may come with a feeling of destiny and synchronicity. This cosmic event is likely to correspond to the start of new relationships, collaborations, and partnerships that have the potential to be different from what we experienced before if we navigate them consciously. Around this time, existing relationships could change their form and our social circles may expand or shift. We may realize that our current boundaries are no longer serving us or the health of our connections and decide to explore new ones.


New Moon conjunct Venus & Mercury: Need for Harmony & Safe Relationships


Venus and retrograde Mercury are in the last degrees of Virgo and they are conjunct the Sun and the Moon in the early degrees of Libra. Venus is also the planetary ruler of Libra and rules the New Moon: her condition gives us more information about the quality of this lunation, hence it is particularly important to consider.

The conjunction of Venus and the Moon emphasizes our need to generate a sense of security, safety, comfort, and nurturance through relationships, which is already strong when the Moon is in Libra. Our desires for intimacy, belonging, sharing, and open-hearted connections are maximized with this configuration, and so is our need to be surrounded by harmony, keep the peace, and prevent conflict. We are likely to feel a desire to slow down, indulge in pleasurable pursuits, and connect with our bodies, our senses, Nature, and the beauty all around us.

The activation of retrograde Mercury and its conjunction with Venus may indicate a desire to reach out to people from our past and increase the potential of receiving messages from them. We may notice an urge to find clarity and closure in old relationships and say unspoken words so that we are able to fully release the past and move forward. 

The retrograde Mercury-Venus-New Moon conjunction underlines the importance of gaining awareness of our communication patterns in relationships and invites us to reassess, redefine, and rewire them. As Mercury and Venus are in the sign of Virgo, it points to the necessity of being appropriately discerning to introduce adjustments and refine existing communication habits in order to promote healthy and authentic harmony in our relationships.


Sun, Moon, Venus & Mercury opposite Neptune and trine Pluto


The Sun, the Moon, Venus, and Mercury are all opposite Neptune in Pisces, now retrograde. These alignments indicate that our perceptions may be clouded by fantasy and it may be hard to see situations and people clearly right now, as we are particularly sensitive to the emotions and feelings of others and our idealism is increased. We could find it more challenging than usual to distinguish between wishful thinking or projection and reality, and have hard times relating to people according to where they are at, rather than according to their potential. 

As Mercury is currently in retrograde motion, it points to a need to redefine our values, our ideals, or our spiritual philosophy, and this could be particularly the case if we often end up feeling deceived or disillusioned by others. These aspects indicate great compassion and empathy, the potential for heart-opening experiences, and the maximization of our creative and artistic abilities, as it will be easier to tap into the collective unconscious and convey collective experiences and emotions through our creative expression.

New Moon in Libra September 2022

Sun, Moon, Mercury, and Venus are also trine retrograde Pluto in Capricorn. This configuration suggests a need to deepen our connections, our conversations, and our awareness of the emotional and psychological patterns playing out at a subconscious level, to relate with both ourselves and others in a more profound way. Pluto’s need for radical honesty may clash with the idealism and the need for idyllic perfection sought by Neptune. Finding a way to balance the two without getting to the extremes of total cynicism or total self-delusion could be a challenge that arises around the time of this New Moon.


New Moon opposite Jupiter: Harmonizing Imbalances


The Sun, the Moon, Venus, and Mercury are opposing retrograde Jupiter in Aries, another very active planet at the time of this lunation. The Sun opposite Jupiter can reflect a tendency to overestimate our energetic capacities and gravitate towards overdoing and overexpansion. This alignment is energizing and motivating: it is supporting our self-confidence, our enthusiasm, our generosity, our willingness to take risks, and our capacity to see the bright side of life.

These days, however, we may find it challenging to harmonize our emotional needs and our desire to expand and make new experiences. The Moon-Jupiter opposition on the Aries-Libra axis, together with the involvement of Venus, can indicate feeling conflicted relative to our need to cultivate our relationships with others and our desire to explore life independently on our own terms. This is likely to be a theme of the upcoming lunar cycle and will emerge very clearly around the time of the intense Aries Full Moon conjunct Chiron, coming up on October 9.

The opposition between the New Moon, Venus, Mercury, and Jupiter invites us to harmonize imbalances and gain awareness of any tendency to gravitate towards extremes, in particular regarding our energetic investments in ourselves and in others. This lunation invites us to discover how we can restore a sense of harmony and balance in our lives, to set appropriate boundaries to avoid participating in relationship dynamics that feel one-sided, and ask ourselves why we tend to co-create specific relational experiences and what is our role in them.

New Moon in Libra: New Ways of Relating


This Libra New Moon is inviting us to evaluate how the relationship we have established with ourselves is being reflected in our relationships with other people, and vice versa. We may discover that, if we adjust the way we are showing up for ourselves, the dynamics and patterns of our external relationships shift accordingly. It is a good time to reflect and journal upon what type of change would be required, on our part, to attract and maintain the kind of connections we desire, and see what happens if we work on that.

The presence of Venus in the sign of Virgo represents an invitation to be more self-contained and discerning relative to the type of relationships we participate in, the social settings we choose, and the amount of time and attention we invest into our connections. This configuration reminds us to consider the broader energetic impact of our decisions and our participation in certain situations, relationships, and dynamics. We have an opportunity to evaluate and reflect on whether or not our choices are nourishing us, are in alignment with our values, and are enhancing our overall health and well-being.

The Libra New Moon invites us to deepen our awareness of how we relate with others and how that affects us, calling for deeper discernment regarding how we connect and with whom, what boundaries are in place, and how communication is set up. This lunation is an opportunity to explore new ways of relating and connecting, and to align our relationship choices with the changes that have been taking place within ourselves.

New Moon in Libra: Sacred Mirrors

On October 6, 07:05 AM ET, we experience a New Moon at 13°24’ of Libra, happening in conjunction with Mars and retrograde Mercury. Just a few hours later, at 2:29 PM ET, another relevant cosmic shift takes place: Pluto stations direct at 24°18’ Capricorn after being in retrograde motion since the end of April.

The New Moon in Libra highlights the importance of seeing other people as our sacred mirrors, of finding harmony between giving and receiving, of creating relationships based on reciprocity. Meanwhile, Pluto stationing direct is likely to catalyze transformative events that speed up the pace of our growth during the upcoming lunar cycle.

To celebrate the arrival of this New Moon in Libra, on October 6 at 9:45 PM ET, we are hosting Global Live New Moon in Libra Meditation on our YouTube channel. We invite you to join us, and invite others to meditate together with us. Tap here to find our scheduled live meditation.


New Moon in Libra: Forming New Relationships & Reshaping Existing Connections


Each month, we have an opportunity for a fresh start: New Moons are a time to plant seeds for the future: they begin a new chapter of our lives. The New Moon represents the first phase of the lunar cycle, and it is a perfect moment for intention setting. For the upcoming two weeks, the focus is on spontaneous and intuitive action: we generate a momentum that culminates with the Full Moon.

Libra is the opposite and complementary archetype to Aries, the sign of the self, of instinct, of pure impulse and unpremeditated action. Libra’s aim is the initiation of relationships, and through relationships we learn to connect to others in conditions of equality, to harmonize and balance the different facets of our lives, to secure reciprocity, peace, and justice.

We have a chance to form new relationships, and to reassess and reshape our existing ones. This New Moon sets in motion a journey of discovery of the way we want to be in connection, and of the roles other people play in our lives.


The Delicate Balance between Giving and Receiving


Libra is about learning through the Other, gaining awareness of what we lack, allowing ourselves to receive from others, and becoming aware of what we can give. The Moon in Libra shows us how our relationships represent a source of emotional security: forming and maintaining equal and fair connections with others gives us a sense of safety and comfort.

new moon in libra

Having four celestial bodies traveling through Libra highlights the value of active listening and learning through comparison. While comparing ourselves to others in an unconscious way can indeed be detrimental, there is a conscious kind of comparison that encourages self-awareness and recognizes the value of differences and contrast. This type of awareness ultimately allows us to harmonize with others without compromising our individuality.


New Moon in Libra conjunct Mars & retrograde Mercury


The New Moon in Libra is tightly conjunct Mars and in wider conjunction to retrograde Mercury. These alignments increase our drive to actively generate conditions of harmony and fairness and our willingness to fight to defend peace and promote justice. 

Sun conjunct Mars supports our physical stamina, our creativity, and our determination: having a physical outlet for this energy is key to channeling it constructively without getting carried away by it. Moon conjunct Mars reflects some defensiveness and a tendency to take things personally, but it also supports our capacity for emotional resilience, and increases our impulse to protect those who need it.

Mars is also an archetype linked to separation: the ruler of Aries helps us cut cords from what is no longer aligned with our path, from what no longer nourishes us. The presence of Mars in the configuration may help us overcome any tendency to avoid speaking our truth and keep an inauthentic sense of peace just for the sake of maintaining connections.

Mercury’s retrograde cycle in Libra represents a time to review our way of communicating, thinking, being in connection with others, and perceiving relationships. The presence of Mercury supports diplomatic conversations and active listening during the upcoming lunar cycle, and it can reflect a tendency to overthink and intellectualize our feelings.


New Moon & Mars opposite Chiron & trine Saturn


There is an opposition, a 180° angle, between the Sun, the Moon, Mars and retrograde Chiron in Aries. When Chiron opposes personal planets, we have a chance to become aware of our own wounds by seeing them mirrored in other people. With oppositions, something tends to be perceived in others before we can perceive it in ourselves. During these days, our actions, our self-expression, or our emotions may trigger someone. Their pain may inform us of what is still unresolved within ourselves, in particular by showing us whether we are being excessively self-centered or excessively accommodating.

We are also experiencing an harmonic 120° trine between the New Moon, Mars, and Saturn in Aquarius, which supports our discipline and increases our motivation to take action on our visions and dreams for the future. Saturn in Aquarius is innovative and futuristic: its aim is to work as a community to build new social structures and improve the existing systems. This alignment supports our endurance, our capacity to collaborate and work as a team, our ability to commit to something for the long haul, and to take responsibility for our desires.


Venus conjunct the South Node: Karmic Meetings & Fated Encounters 


The planetary ruler of the Libra New Moon is Venus, currently at 28° Scorpio and conjunct the South Node of the Moon at 2°of Sagittarius. The South Node is a point in space correlated with our past, with something we are very familiar with, with tendencies that we naturally express. In Astrology, Venus is associated with matters of the heart, with social interactions, with finances, with our values, and with the foundation of our sense of self-worth.

Venus conjunct the South Node reflects strong cravings for romance and intimacy, and a tendency to identify with our relationships, with our existing beliefs, and with our value system. During the upcoming lunar cycle, we may feel tempted to establish or maintain connections to gain a sense of safety, belonging, and emotional security. Venus is also separating from a square to Jupiter in Aquarius, highlighting the risks of over-indulgence and over-spending, while expanding our love and social life.

When the nodal axis is activated by Venus, there is a high possibility of karmic and fated encounters. As the pressure to resolve unconcluded issues increases, people from our past may return, or we may meet someone we feel strangely familiar with, even if we have never seen each other before. Throughout the upcoming lunar month, we may have opportunities to gain enough awareness to unravel repetitive relationship patterns and break cycles we seem to be stuck in.


Pluto stations direct in Capricorn: Breaking Down Conditioning & Oppressive Systems


From our perspective on Earth, Pluto has been in retrograde motion since April and from now on will slowly begin moving forward again. Pluto in Capricorn is a long-term transit. It began in 2008 and will last until 2023, bringing forth the dismantling of obsolete and oppressive systems while catalyzing the breakdown of the cultural, familial, and societal conditioning we have been internalizing throughout our lives.

Plutonian transformations are raw and intense. When planets are stationary, their influence is more powerful: they are more likely to catalyze changes and unanticipated events. Pluto stationing direct simultaneously with the New Moon increases the chances of undergoing experiences of deep metamorphosis.

As the integration of the insights we received during the retrograde begins, occurrences and revelations may bring us out of our comfort zone and speed up our evolutionary pace by accelerating our deconditioning process.

New Moon in Libra: Maintaining Connections while Honoring our Individuality


When we don’t build a bond with ourselves and invest too much energy in our connections with others, crises can happen as a way to bring us back on track, and force us to establish adjustments. The New Moon and Mars in Libra are forming a quincunx, a 150° aspect of paradox and incongruence, with Uranus in Taurus: their alignment reflects the importance of cultivating relationships with others from an embodied place and a clear awareness of our self-worth.

The capacity to harmonize with people and attune to their reality is linked to the ability to cultivate an ongoing and honest relationship with ourselves. This includes being able to identify and honor our needs, desires, values, and boundaries. Going out of our way to make others feel satisfied and happy, to maintain peace, or to gain an illusory feeling of acceptance and belonging does not benefit anyone if in the process we lose ourselves.

This New Moon in Libra is bringing up any lack of coherence between our inner relationship with ourselves and the relationships we try to build with others. Due to the presence of Chiron opposing Sun, Moon, and Mars, we may feel that every time we express our feelings or assert our needs we are triggering someone. The upcoming lunar cycle may shed light on conditioning connected to the false belief that, if we desire to be in relationships with others, we can’t be fully expressed as individuals.

Super New Moon in Libra: Relationships and Karma

On October 16, 3:30 PM ET, we witness a Super New Moon in Libra, the second one of a trilogy of Supermoons. The first one happened in Virgo on September 17, and the next one will be in Scorpio on November 15.

Their progression has the function to set the stage and prepare us for the Total New Moon Solar Eclipse in Sagittarius that takes place on December 14, opening a portal of metamorphosis and immense change that will unravel throughout the whole 2021.

Supermoons are New or Full Moons happening closer to us: from our perspective on Earth they appear bigger. This is the closest Super New Moon we experience in 2020, and her influence is undoubtedly more intense than a regular New Moon, because the gravitational pull of the Moon is stronger.

Every New Moon inaugurates another cycle of growth: she offers us the opportunity to start anew, to begin a new chapter in our lives. New Moons represent the first stage of the lunar cycle, and this is the perfect moment for intention setting and conscious manifestation: the Cosmos encourages us to plant a seed, to define a clear vision for the future, and have faith in its unfolding.

To celebrate the arrival of this Super New Moon in Libra we are hosting Global Live Super New Moon Meditation on our channel on October 16th, 9:45 PM EST. We invite you to join your Soul Family and meditate together with us, please spread the word and invite others too!


Super New Moon in Libra: Striving for Healthy Compromise


The New Supermoon in Libra reminds us of the importance of being surrounded by peace and harmony: during the upcoming weeks, the spotlight will be on creating conditions of fairness in all areas of our lives.

The theme of self versus others and the need to find a dynamic balance between meeting our needs and meeting other people’s needs have been big themes of the entire Libra season, that were magnified when the Aries Full Moon took place.

These issues will still be relevant for the upcoming lunar cycle, during which we are encouraged to learn and grow through our interactions with others. Scorpio season will put the spotlight on our closest relationships, emphasizing issues around intimacy, trust, and emotional vulnerability.

The New Supermoon in Libra encourages us to negotiate and mediate, in order to find compromises that are truly healthy, that promote balance, and that don’t diminish our self-respect in any way.


Super New Moon in Libra trine North Node: New Paths are Opening


The Sun and the Moon at 23° Libra are creating a trine to the North Node in Gemini. Trines are angles of 120°: they represent supportive aspects that promote an easy flow of energy and exchange of information between celestial bodies that occupy signs of the same element.

The trine to the North Node in Gemini increases the karmic relevance of this Super New Moon. Any contact between a planet and the Lunar Nodes emphasizes the importance of conscious expression of the planet involved for our personal and collective evolution and highlights the role of that same planet in the shift in global consciousness that is taking place.

When a New or a Full Moon is in alignment to the Nodal Axis, the energy that their aspect brings will be available to us throughout the rest of the lunar cycle.

The transit of the North Node through Gemini, lasting until 2022, stresses the importance of ongoing learning and invites us to keep our mind open, to speak to people very different from us, to be curious, to listen to others points of view, and to challenge our perception of the world.

This cosmic event has the potential to open new paths and can bring very karmic opportunities to many of us. As the sign of Libra is involved, this is likely to happen through the people we meet.

Super New Moon in Libra

The Libra Super New Moon will bring unexpected social encounters, fated interactions, and incredible synchronicities: many of us will experience the sensation of being in the right place at the right time, many will come across inspiring people who introduce us to new worlds, perspectives, and ways of living.


Sun and Moon opposite Mars: Balancing Self and Others


Sun and Moon join forces at 23° Libra, and they oppose retrograde Mars at 20° Aries: the exact opposition between Sun and Mars took place on October 13, but its influence is still active.

Retrograde Mars in Aries opposite the Super New Moon reminds us that, to be able to show up in our relationships from a grounded and secure place, we must actively cultivate a sense of self-worth, self-esteem, and self-respect. To have healthy relationships, we need to feel good, fulfilled, and complete within ourselves.

We can’t give from an empty cup, and we can’t expect that other people will make us happy if we are not feeling good with ourselves. Similarly, we can’t expect to be the solution to someone’s problems, we can’t ask other people to fix our problems and fulfill our desires either: that’s too much of a burden to place on someone.

Cultivating balanced relationships with ourselves and with others is an ongoing work that is never really over: the current planetary transits may bring up issues from the past that we think we solved long ago. What happens has the function to remind us that we must be aware of our inner state and honor our needs at any time in order to find a good balance between the energy invested in ourselves and the energy invested in relationships.


Sun and Moon square Jupiter, Saturn, and Pluto: Exploring the Friction


The Sun and the Moon in Libra are in a square aspect to Jupiter, Saturn, and Pluto in Capricorn. The current planetary configuration, that includes the Sun and Moon in opposition to Mars, all squaring the planets in Capricorn, is commonly referred to as T-square: the tension created by this alignment has the purpose to make us uncomfortable to inspire us to initiate change.

During these days, we may feel that our creativity, our spontaneous urges, and our emotional expression are blocked by external influences. These aspects can reflect a fair amount of social unrest around the concept of justice, disagreements around what is fair, what is right, and what is acceptable.

Capricorn is the archetype related to structure, discipline, rules, laws, responsibility, and authority. We may experience a strong tension because of our social obligations, the expectations of others, the rules established by authorities, the restrictions that threaten our natural need for space, independence, and freedom.

Unresolved emotional patterns can emerge throughout the upcoming lunar cycle: if we respond wisely to what happens, we have the opportunity to break free from all those limitations that we unconsciously place on ourselves because of the childhood and societal conditioning we received.

The friction generated by these squares can make us feel lost, that we are being pushed off course. Yet, it has the essential function of developing our character, willpower, and strength. These aspects have the potential to inspire us to implement positive change, to improve our reality, to find new ways of being in relationships, new ways of being in society, and, ultimately, to establish a new paradigm and a New Earth.


Venus opposite Neptune: Discrimination and Purification


Venus in Virgo is the planetary ruler of the Super New Moon in Libra: looking at how Venus is aspected and at the sign she is transiting gives us additional information that allows us to understand better how the energy of the New Moon is expressed.

Venus in Virgo is opposing Neptune: their aspect, exact on October 18, emphasizes the importance of discrimination. This alignment is reminding us that we become the people we allow into our lives, we become who we share our energy with, and we need to pay attention to who we trust.

Super New Moon in Libra

Challenging aspects between Venus and Neptune may bring up some disillusionment, as under their influence we tend to see only the good side of people, situations, and deals. Yet, disillusionment has the function of freeing ourselves: it purifies us from what is not authentic and honest and allows us to make space for connections that are real and genuine.


Super New Moon in Libra: Relationships and Karma


The Super New Moon in Libra inaugurates a lunar cycle during which we will experience many karmic lessons through our interactions with other people.

We find ourselves in an extremely delicate moment of history, many friendships, partnerships, connections are ending, and new ones are beginning.

It’s becoming easier and easier to understand who is on a similar frequency, who is in the same evolutionary stage, who has similar priorities, needs, desires, and values. On the contrary, interacting with those who are not aligned with us is becoming increasingly harder, more and more challenging and frustrating.

If you have been feeling lonely, isolated, and alienated from the people around you, you are not alone! A huge shift is taking place, this is a natural part of it, but it won’t last forever. For the very same reason, an increasing number of people are finding their Soul family, their soulmates, their sacred partners; many are forming conscious unions during this particular time.

Ultimately, the Super New Moon in Libra is here to remind us that relationships are the most powerful catalyst for personal and collective growth. If we navigate all our interactions with others with self-awareness, we have the potential to exponentially accelerate the speed of our healing process and evolutionary journey.
