The New Moon today occurs in your soul sector, dear Libra, stirring up powerful feelings and intuitions.

This New Moon brings you take-charge energy for dealing with matters that have outworn their value in your life.

In the month ahead, you may need to put some things behind you so that you can begin a new year refreshed and in charge, and today’s New Moon highlights this need.

You receive a blast of intuition now that is important but do take a few days to process things. New Moons are impulsive.

Nevertheless, an excellent time is ahead for cleaning house on an emotional or mental level. This is a time for freeing up emotional space to allow new energy into your life.

Today, Venus leaves your sign and enters Scorpio. Interestingly, in early October, Venus will turn retrograde and eventually return to your sign for a redo. Current feelings and projects may need some reconsidering later.

A retreat may be a necessity today rather than a luxury. Even the world’s most extroverted person needs alone time to revitalize their spirit.

If you try to resist this emotional urge now, you might find that your friends and partners are too busy to indulge you.

Or, perhaps, you feel estranged because a social connection you thought was secure turns out not to be.

Get in touch with your heart and make sure you are fulfilling your own needs. Your relationship with yourself is also a social relationship which needs your care.

Venus’ departure from Libra yesterday has left your heart with a voice and a say in what you want from your birthday month and new solar year, which is still 13 days away.

Yet while it is important to listen to and trust your heart, you don’t need to worry about forgetting your intentions or sticking to anything religiously.

Venus will be back within two months for a rare double dip visit, creating an opportunity for both a do over and a change of heart ahead.
