We continue our look at the New Moon in Libra from yesterday, October 18, 2017.

As mentioned yesterday, we will be experiencing a New Moon in the sign of Libra peaking today, October 19, 2017 at 3:12 p.m. (Eastern daylight savings time). Plant your seeds for growth or bring something already created to an exciting new level under these energies. Please read yesterday’s post for information on the Libra New Moon specifically and the influence Jupiter currently has. Today we will continue by looking at Mercury’s conjunction and Uranus’ opposition to the New Moon.

Mercury conjunct this placement of the New Moon brings together mental reasoning into the realms of emotional and instinctive feelings. You may find it easier to rationalize your emotions and this is not normally an easy task. The energies of the New Moon in Libra can push you to be extremely protective of those you love and you can use your intellect to defend those that you might feel are being treated unjustly. The emotions can work well with the intellect under this influence, and you may find ways to keep things in line and also find solutions to problems with family and friends. As mentioned, it is all about balancing things out.

The only aspect that could be a little erratic would come from the opposition to Uranus. Uranus is a bit impulsive and behaves in unconventional ways. You might feel the need to break free from any intrusive behaviour from others or from life situations, at this time. The desire to move in a different direction is strong and often other people or life circumstances seem to push you in this direction. Uranus will bring awareness to anything that needs dealing with, but can make you behave erratically. Remember, however, your response to life is always in your hands. You choose how to handle any situation, so you cannot blame your reactions on anyone or anything else. It is wise to accept responsibility.

Check to see where these planets are transiting in your personal natal chart, especially Uranus as it will have an impact on that area of life for some time. Uranus moves slowly through the zodiac, and it remains in each house for approximately seven years. It may be affecting other planet or angles within your natal chart as well which will also have an influence but this obviously cannot be detailed without having seen the chart.

Libra is ruled by the planet Venus, and Venus often speak of financial conditions. With Uranus and Jupiter as part of the equation, you may become overly extravagant during this time. Watch for over-spending or spending on a whim. Erratic financial conditions are sometimes part of the process and you may find that you come into money or spend too much money during this time.

It is a good idea to monitor your spending and use your funds wisely. Even though you feel like you can spend freely during this time, it might not be the best idea.
