Because this New Moon is on the Equinox, it falls within one degree of the O Degree Aries Point (which included all four cardinal signs). It symbolizes added power, drive and significant. On top of that, it links to Mars in Sagittarius, adding fiery drive and heat. You’ll be inspired in all kinds of ways and it’s quite possible change will be easier, more graceful now.
Note that in Astrology, the elements (Fire, Earth, Air or Water) of the signs are divided into ‘decanates’, or divisions of 10. In this method, each sign is divided into three lots of 10 degrees (0 – 10, 10 – 20, 20 – 30). The first taking on the nature of the sign itself ( ). The second decan takes on qualities of the next sign in its element (in this case, AIR) ( ) and the third taking on the subsequent sign of its element ( ).
Think of the planetary ruler of the sign of each new decan. They add their own spark of energy to the mix. For the New Moon at 1 degree Libra, it falls in the 1st, or Venus rules decanate, adding a double whammy to the Libra-Venus vibe.
0 to 9′ 59 Libra: – Easy going, with a cultivated and gentle nature. Nothing course or raw here. Sensual and artistic; social and attracting. Doesn’t like to do things alone. Needs to express creativity.
