Taking on a more measured approach may be helpful when considering the mutable energies at play here! Needless to say, we can all use a little bit of Libra’s balance and light-heartedness, especially because Gemini and Virgo can cause mental overload.

Check which astrological house belongs to Libra in your birth chart, as this is precisely where you are being presented with an opportunity to start something new; something that brings you the balance and harmony you’ve so deeply been needing.

In any case, take a moment to reflect on what needs work, and how you can harness this energy for your highest good.
Because this new moon takes place in Libra and Venus is Libra’s ruling planet, it’s important to consider what the planet of love is up to right now. At the moment, Venus is in practical and diligent Virgo, imbuing this new moon with a layer of analysis, devotion and practicality. Venus is “debilitated” when moving through rational and logical Virgo, which is not exactly the vibe that pleasure-seeking Venus is going for. However, Venus brings focus to the logical details and tedious processes when transiting through this Mercury-ruled sign. And because Venus is also joining forces with Mercury retrograde in Virgo during this month’s new moon, the energy may feel even more introverted and introspective. After all, retrograde energies bring us inward, which makes this lunation all the more personal.
Look at it this way: if Libra is about cooperation, Virgo is about resourcefulness. And as these two energies merge under this new moon, you may be reflecting on what’s no longer in alignment with your end goal. If you’re embracing changes in a specific relationship, you’re also being encouraged to analyze and examine where your energy isn’t being reciprocated (or on the flip side, where you’re not reciprocating enough). After all, Libra is a zodiac sign that’s often associated with relationships, as nothing requires balance more than a relationship. Sitting opposite Aries—the zodiac sign of pride, courage and instinct—Libra is a zodiac sign that much prefers to consider the “we” over the “I”, as Libra understands that cooperation and togetherness is the greatest harmonizer of all.
Devoted and justice-seeking, September’s new moon in Libra can help us commit to the solutions, connections and/or practices that will bring us the balance and harmony you need. Keep in mind, this Mercury-Venus conjunction will also align with Pluto retrograde which is also empowering and motivating us to take the lead and transform our lives for the better. Lastly, the moon’s opposition to Jupiter retrograde in Aries will simultaneously bring us into contact with the people, places and situations that resonate most with our individual authenticity. After all, it takes two to tango, so don’t forget to remember what you bring to the table.
