Libra New Moon: Partner Up
You times two is the magic formula at this Tuesday’s Libra new moon. Libra rules the zodiac’s seventh house of committed partnerships, making this a divine day to kick off any team efforts. New moons have a six-month growth cycle that culminates in a corresponding full moon a half-year later. Not ready to seal the deal? Plant the seeds for any relationships now. Send an introductory email, book an informational interview, begin nurturing a connection.
Wise, thoughtful Libra never rushes, so take a “try before you buy” approach. You might even offer to intern or volunteer somewhere that piques your curiosity. If it’s a good match, it could turn into something more permanent down the line. Same goes for your love life. A few great dates that end with a hug or a small kiss, small romantic gestures like flowers and notes … these little Libra-lovey things are the sum total of a lasting relationship. No, you shouldn’t sweat the small stuff — but don’t ignore it, either!
This year’s Libra new moon forms a tense T-square with erratic Uranus (in me-first Aries) and transformer Pluto (in long-term planner Capricorn). Your efforts to please everyone could be undermined by someone’s selfishness or by the greater demands of life. You may be acting in a selfish manner, too, or being overly focused on the future instead of living in the moment. Tempers flaring? Pause. Breathe. Lay out everyone’s needs and demands as though you were a five-star general mapping a grand empire build-out. Weigh them all against the big-picture goals that everyone wants. It may take quite a bit of back-and-forth, but if you work the Libran gift of diplomacy, you’ll find compromise soon enough.
