As much as Libra prefers to keep things pleasant, this New Moon at 05° 20′ Libra on 28 September 2019, 11:27 AM PDT, is more likely to end up on the contentious side. When pressed this ordinarily peace loving cardinal air sign can be tough indeed.
All the Libra planets are under pressure on this lunation. The Libra Sun and Moon are both exactly inconjunct unpredictable Uranus in Taurus, Mercury squares Pluto in Capricorn and poor Venus, Libra’s ruler, catches the most heat. She squares both Saturn and Pluto in Capricorn and is exactly inconjunct Neptune in Pisces. The Jupiter-Venus sextile will help with maintaining a positive attitude, essential for finding win-win solutions.
Neither Libra nor Taurus is a fan of unexpected changes in plans; it makes them cranky and uncooperative. Unfortunately unexpected changes are Uranus’s specialty. Please remember to ask well beforehand whether or not your significant other is interested in going along with your plans. Telling them at the last minute is a bad idea, OK? This pertains to finances as well as social events.
The expression ‘the truth will out’ is very appropriate for the Mercury-Pluto square. Mercury in Libra is very interested in equity and justice while Pluto is noted for uncovering the hidden information the powers that be went to a lot of trouble to bury. This is not the best time to be keeping secrets from your nearest and dearest either.
Even though the Jupiter-Neptune square is gradually waning, it still is busy causing trouble . . . this time through Venus in Libra. The need to be up front and honest in love and money matters is always a good idea but even more so at this time. Here again we have Saturn and Pluto in Capricorn weighing in demanding all parties play by the rules. If they don’t, the consequences are not going to be pretty.
Nip any hint of expectations in the bud, especially when it comes to relationships. Keep in mind behind that sweet, dimpled Libra smile is a hard headed negotiator who is not going to settle for second best. Prenuptial agreements were probably started by a Libra lawyer who had his/her client’s best interests in mind. Libra loves romance as much as the next person but not at his/her financial and emotional expense.
There is no better time than this New Moon in Libra to put our best foot forward in all our one-on-one relationships. We need to practice tact, honesty and fairness. The cardinal emphasis encourages a proactive approach and we finally have enough planets in air to think things through objectively. Some may come to the realization their relationships are no longer meeting their needs and decide to end them. After all, the best new beginnings start with a good, deep, housecleaning. Always be kind and patient! Peace to all.
