Today’s New Moon, arriving at 7:12 PM UTC, falls at 26 degrees 35 minutes of Libra, the sign of the diplomat, the negotiator, the mediator, but also of the endless, graceful yet conflicted dance between opposites that sparks growth, births life, sets the Universe in motion.
New Moons are cosmic doorways to fresh starts; they allow us to shed old skin, and break ground for new cycles. Under a Libra New Moon, it’s the promise of a newfound harmony, both within ourselves and in our surroundings, that appeals the most to us. Bridging the gaps. Cherishing our allies, making peace with the Other around and within us.
And yet, with the New Moon occuring in opposition with cosmic agitator, Uranus, the path towards balance might be more twisted and tortuous than we expect, pushing us out of our comfort zone in ways that are difficult to predict, urging us to reconcile with ourselves through the radical encounter with an outlandish, undecipherable otherness.
