It’s a New Moon in Libra at 19 degrees, yet this one has the vibes of a Full Moon, so let’s take note of what’s up currently in the cosmos. The Sun in 19 degrees is directly next to the Moon, so it’s adding heat and energy to this lunar cycle, unlike last month’s New Moon. Whereas last month was more chill and introverted, this month the dark moon is much “brighter” and more illuminated than normal. Hence, our shadows are coming into the light and change is beckoning you forth. Will you stay or will you go? Sorry to break it to you, babe…but you may not have a choice this time around. Libra rules the 7th House of Committed Relationships/Partnerships in astrology, so this theme of cutting ourselves loose from what isn’t serving us anymore in relationships, letting go of what must be released and setting ourselves free with our own karma in mind is key. And this month, it’s got a mind of its own with the influence of Uranus shaking things up big-time.
The Sun represents our Ego and our masculine vibes, so it’s a get-shit-done kind of energy affecting us here. There’s also another factor that’s about to blast our butts into gear, but most likely in a completely far-out, unexpected way: URANUS. That’s right – the Notorious B.I.G. planet of surprises and innovation is sitting pretty directly opposite the Moon this cycle, so prepare yourself for sudden change and be totally open to how it occurs. The most important thing to remember here is, YOU ARE NOT IN TOTAL CONTROL. Uranus is like the Divine Puppetmaster, pulling strings when necessary to blast us out of old habits or surprise us with something we’d never have planned, but that shakes us up like the perfect martini (dirty, up, 3 olives, hits right below the brim…) or suddenly reorganizes our life like a game of Yatzee, where the pieces fall out exactly as they’re meant for us. Trust is your mantra right now.
The Universe isn’t testing our limits; it’s BREAKING them.
This year has been full of so many radical changes for us, and it’s not over yet. Even after surviving last month’s Supermoon Eclipse, there is still massive transformational energy (think of The Tower card in the tarot’s Major Arcana) rolling in like waves and you’re going to need your long board to stay afloat.
What CAN you do?
The beauty of New Moons is that it’s the perfect time to set fresh intentions, plant your seeds and watch them grow. And with this New Moon in Libra in opposition to Uranus, you can take your power back by making your intentions CRYSTAL CLEAR and focused, more so than ever.
What exactly do you want and Why?
Libra is the zodiac sign of the scales, of Karmic Justice. What’s crucial to remember at this point is that with every choice you make, you’re acting with your OWN karma in mind, and that with every step you take, you’re either lightening or adding on to your karmic load. Why create more baggage when you’ve got the ability to cruise through your soul’s lesson with ease? All it takes is a solid dose of Action, Surrender + Integrity. This lunar cycle is challenging you to face your karma with a smile and lessen it by choosing the fork in the road (with an open-mind) that will lead you to more love and greater harmony.
If you’re fearful of change, or surrounded by people that are, it’s going to be quite a rocky road for you. If there are some ties in your life that have been hanging around waiting to be released, this New Moon is going to help with the final chop-chop. You may want to perform an energetic cord-cutting ceremony if there’s anyone you’d like to give the final GOODBYE to at this time. Any stragglers, energy vamps or unhealthy connections are ready to go like the wind, because they aren’t helping you move forward with the type of vigor the Universe is gifting you this month.

It’s the perfect time to ask your Spirit Guide team for a divine sign, a message, an answer to a decision you must make or something that you need to know for your highest good. BELIEVE you will receive it, and you will. That’s where faith + intention come swooping in. Make space for quiet and calmness. Sit at your altar. Go for a walk. Meditate. Just Be. Allow whatever needs to come through for you to do so effortlessly and stay open to the “how”. And lastly, expect the unexpected.
