Venus, the planet of love, beauty, sensuality, and feminine grace, governs both Taurus and Libra. Today, as we welcome in the New Moon in Libra, we are brought into the sphere of Venus’s warm embrace.
Today, the Moon moves into the air sign, Libra, setting a tone of gentle balance to temper the heat and tumultuous flames of cosmic intensity we are experiencing right now.
Some of us may be reeling in a bit of heated bitterness, trying to figure out why things have happened to us the way they have. This may bring a lot of old wounds to the surface, especially personal ones we have harbored for many years, even since childhood, involving people we thought were supposed to nurture, love, and protect us. Some of us may be trying to figure out the best course of action; do we throw in the towel and walk away from the people, places, and things, that have caused us tremendous pain? Or, do we find a way to reconcile what we’ve experienced, so that we can all be free? This is quite a tall order, but we are receiving a bit of help from the cosmos to sort it all out.
Mae West once said, “I never said it would be easy, I only said it would be worth it.” And this holds true for how a lot of us may feel during this New Moon in Libra, Wednesday October 6, 2021.
There have been some heavy hitting energies the past month or so, especially while a lot of our long standing planetary retrogrades enter their final stretches before turning direct. Right when we feel like we just need a break, the Universe sends us this New Moon to remind us that all things eventually come full circle and balance out. But we have to be ready to see it through to the end. It’s not over just yet. So, rest, regroup, and be ready for the final lap.
