According to Divine Harmony the New Moon in Libra was exact on Friday September 30th 2016 at 5:11pm PDT, commencing a new lunar cycle that focuses on relationship, partnership, balance, beauty, harmony and inner and outer peace. And because this New Moon is conjunct Jupiter in this new home sign of Libra (where he will be for the next year) it’s a time to plant seeds and set intentions about what you want to expand or grow into in the upcoming year! ~ Divine Harmony
This is A favorite New Moon image for me, the Divine Feminine energy behind the moon, this time in Libra, the symbol of balance. Holding the balance between opposites and seeing both sides of an equation is not always easy but that is what is required here. I don’t have a lot to say this time but there is a lot going on personally, collectively and politically. Be sure to register and get out to vote! It couldn’t be more important. Here’s some of what Divine Harmony says about this New Moon; she also has a great article on the 13th zodiac sign and NASA here. ~ Blessings, Mary

This is an interesting New Moon- as it does initiate us into the goodness of Jupiter in Libra but it also makes quite a few tense aspects (mars, neptune, pluto and the south node). Jupiter in Libra is excellent for growth via connection with others. Libra is the sign of partnership so Jupiter in Libra helps us to grow via our partnerships and collaborations with others. Libra is symbolized by the scales- which speaks to seeking balance between self and other, give and take, assertion and compromise. Jupiter in Libra wants to teach us how to be in relationship in healthy ways- so that we are not coming from codependency (too much other/give/compromise) but also so we are not coming from my way or the high way mentality (too much self, take and assertion). Wherever we tend to err to far in either extreme- the coming year is the time to work on redressing the balance!
So this New Moon can also be a time to really look at our personal timelines- looking at the fate in our lives and how we have created it, as well as looking back into past lives to see the repercussions of the past in the present day. Some people think we should not go into past lives as that is in the past- but actually accessing the Akashic Records helps us to understand patterns that play out in all of our lifetimes and also allows us to see the continuity between lives with clear information about what needs to change.
When we come from a deeply grounded place within- we are not looking for others to complete us. When we come from a place of feeling complete from the inside out- our energetic charge changes and we no longer attract our opposite but instead attract others who have done the work on their wholeness as well.
