This new moon is at 15.48 Libra on Monday, October 8th at 11:47 pm
Tonight’s new moon in Libra is square Pluto in Capricorn, symbolizing a need to re-balance power. This moon is ruled by Venus, currently retrograde in Scorpio. During this cycle in Scorpio, Venus wants us to re-acquaint ourselves with our own power. We give away our power when we decide that we don’t “deserve” love. This is a form of giving power away to others by allowing the larger culture to define who “deserves” love, by letting past partners define the type of love we “deserve”, and by leaving it up to someone else to find us and love us when we are not loving ourselves. In the spirit of helping you to reclaim some of your power, here’s a visualization from visionary activist astrologer Caroline Casey, shared through her book Making the Gods Work for You.
By banishing what was miserable about your past relationships, you remove some unconscious obstacles. Those old relationships and past partners no longer have the power to block the gift of love. Reclaim your personal power and make room for the love you want as we begin this Venus retrograde-ruled lunar cycle.
