This month, starting on the 24th, we have new moon in Libra. Libra is ruled by the planet Venus. Ancient people called Venus the goddess of love, beauty, and pleasure. Venus is also associated with financial gains in astrology. People born under the astrological sign Libra use their charm, social skills, and diplomacy to get what they want. Sometimes Librans can be a bit indecisive. They see both sides of the picture and it becomes difficult for them to choose between two options. This is why they need and admire the directness of Aries individuals.
On October 8th, we also have a full lunar eclipse in Aries. The astrological sign Aries is ruled by Mars. The planet Mars brings to light the assertive, vigorous, energetic, dynamic and aggressive side of the human psyche. Aries is a fire sign and rules the first house of the zodiac. The first house is associated with self. Aries individuals are attracted to Libra’s charm and diplomacy.
Libra is an air sign opposite Aries and rules the seventh house of partnership. Aries and Libra are both cardinal signs and have no problem taking action. Therefore they will both take action, but their reason and approach for taking action will differ.
We may not be born under the Sun or Ascendant sign of Aries and Libra, but all people born on earth have Venus and Mars in their birth charts. Furthermore, some of them might have other planets in Aries and Libra. They might also have planets in their first and seventh house. With all these possible combinations, all humans have to deal and work with energies of these planets!
I’ve started out with an introduction to the upcoming new and full moon. Please stay tuned for part two.
