2022-04-01 Libra New Moon – Southern Hemisphere

Editor: Robin Armstrong


Libra New Moon

Southern Hemisphere

The New Moon

When your feelings about the past, memories, and your sense of security

conjunct or meet up with

Your confidence,  purposefulness, and your hopes for the future

A profound impression is made.

A note on the harp of the soul.

A seed moment in celestial manifestation.

The Horoscope for the New Moon is for the exact moment of the New Moon.

There are no houses in this chart because the Moon is in all 12 houses at the same time when viewed globally. So this is the true New Moon chart for anywhere on earth. You can add the houses to it according to where you live.

Most computer printouts will draw the horoscope with the houses as appropriate for where you are on the planet. This was not done here in order to focus on things valid for everyone on the planet.

New Moons are the peak  points of subjective impressionability in the month.

Receptivity to core insights and to God, are accentuated.

Chanting (or even drumming) on a New Moon will give an extra vitality to your efforts over the following month,

until the next New Moon.

A holy  environment and spiritual companions are a great blessing.

The New Moon accumulates and reflects on all of the experiences of the past month. On the New Moon the conglomerate of experiences past, creates a high tide of intuitive impressions. At the moment the Moon meets the Sun, light is  shone on these impressions creating a new sense of purpose. It is the Sun than effects the Moon.

From our worldly consciousness we cannot see the combination or aggregate of memories, but we can certainly feel it.

Unfortunately our habit patterns are too gross or physical to allow us to attune to this phenomenon consciously, but we certainly can feel it.

Only the initiate or one established in spiritual disciplines can clearly witness the New Moon within.

Zodiac Pattern Types

Zodiac Bundle Type


All planets within the space of a trine, two thirds of the charts is empty.

The course of the person’s life stays within narrow limits of opportunity. One’s interests will be gathered together intensely. The bundle type is instinctively inhibited. Most of one’s energy will be directed into a few selective concerns. One will be able to create much out of meager circumstances. One will be able to turn small beginnings into significant and unexpected outcomes. You will naturally express yourself in a few specific areas and generally stay detached from other considerations.

Southern Hemisphere

Libra New Moon – Bundle:

Fall Season has started in the Southern Hemisphere and its first New Moon of the season occurs in cerebral Libra. As the Sun and Moon connect in a moment of complete darkness, the potential for deep spiritual contemplation and intuitive insight are created. Although not visible to the naked eye, the Sun meeting the Moon is an energizing time. If you are able to quiet your mind and spirit enough you may feel the moments of heightened impressions followed by a new sense of purpose.

Libra is colouring this new beginning with harmony and an innate need to belong and communicate. How we feel about last month’s experiences will affect our sense of self worth and the intuitive impressions about to unfold. If you feel you have been appreciated this will be a harmonious New Moon. If you have felt unappreciated, you will feel more unsettled and may strive to communicate that after due reflection.

This New Moon is being channeled into the intense Bundle Pattern, inhibiting Libra’s natural social flair. Communication and introspection is apt to focus on a few select concerns. Seeds planted during this months moment of New Moon stillness will have an instigative, pushy quality, bound to create a bigger harvest out of meagre circumstances.

Use this New Moon energy to balance your mind and spirit. Chanting, meditation and sacred dance are all empowering while embracing silent darkness and the voice within.



45° – 0°, 3 1/2 to 0 days before the New Moon.

            This is the last phase of the lunar cycle before the new moon. It is often called the balsamic moon phase and it lasts for three and one half days from the crescent to the new moon. The light finally disappears into the mystery of silence and darkness. Completion becomes important. Your own projections seem to disappear in the vastness of all that is happening around you.

            You are searching for something new but are unsure of how to end the old attachments. Your awareness of others begins to lose relevance as you approach renewal. Try to understand what needs to be left behind. This should be a daily meditation. You have the uncanny ability to know when anything is ending or about to fall apart. Unfortunately it is not usually wise to tell others about it. They would probably consider you to be too negative. You need to learn why things come to an end. It is important for you to mind your own business or you will keep seeing everything that is going to collapse on everyone. Learn to look within for the new vision. Trust silence. Take steps to move towards your vision. Be very selective. Listen and wait.

            Often people will not appreciate you until you have gone. Try to insure that your influence is a positive one. Watch what you say. Often you will seem overwhelmed by useless or futile commitments. Do not try to save face. Be honest and let go.

            The quality of ending will directly effect the nature of the new beginning just about to come. So be wise. No doubt the universe is unfolding as it should. It may not make sense to others but if you trust your conscience, you will see the way. Hold on to your principles. Do not make promises that you cannot keep, especially long term promises.

            You have the tendency to lose yourself in others only to be left very insecure when they do not have the answers. You want to become completely involved with someone. You will constantly search for or wonder about the ultimate love of your life. Often you will feel that what you have is not enough, and then you will wonder why you bother to stay within it.

            You are looking for completion and fulfillment and are not likely to embrace freedom comfortably. You want to burn your past for future goals. It is amazing though how long you can procrastinate and wait. You want to help but often do not know what to do. You will probably not bother until somebody else cares.

            A little encouragement can have profound effects. To attract positive feedback you must be positive towards others. If you must end a situation, it is important for the reason to be correct, otherwise your problems will reoccur in the new arena.


O°- 45°, 0 to 3 1/2 days after the New Moon.

This is the beginning of the lunar cycle and lasts for three and one half days. The light is emerging gently. From the depths of the darkest moment up to the first slim crescent of light, and a little farther until the crescent is smiling brightly.

            This is a highly intuitive time filled with deep impressions and new beginnings. This is a time of seed moments and powerful insights. There is a predominant undercurrent of anxious anticipation. A new moon cycle is born.

            Born under this phase you need to feel that your life is just beginning to open up. The challenge is subjective: are you prepared to advance your own cause? You should readily adjust your lifestyle to support any new sense of direction that you feel is emerging within you. You will be constantly having to make new starts in life. You will be sensitive to new beginnings and uncertain about your present surroundings. You are inclined to leave old attachments and memories behind. You want to move forward towards your goals and will be frustrated by any setbacks.

            When you begin a project it is important to advance with care and gentleness. Make sure that you nurture and protect the germinating seed; ie. the new you. It is usually easier for you to do things than to talk about them. Remember that you do not have to achieve everything right away, but it is important for you to feel that you are advancing toward your goals.

            You are the kind of person who plants ideas in the minds of others. You will reach out and impress others subtly. You will always be able to sense the new path that should be taken. As long as you are moving along this path you will feel relatively secure. Worries and problems will surface when you crystallize or stop growing. Do not look back or hold on to the past. Nurture the light within. Protect your own development and do not throw your good ideas out to fools who will not appreciate them. Neither should you follow the dreams of others. Trust your own inner sense of direction. Whenever you can make the effort to be creative, you should. Do not try to explain the process, just do it! Consistent effort will accumulate. Reach out. Rely on your instincts. Grow. Break out of old patterns. Move on. Move on. New beginnings always seem small against the vastness of life around you, none-the-less every journey starts with one small step. Try to find friends who will support and acknowledge your efforts. Always be cautious about what you say. Words can come back to haunt you.

            You will always be trying to start something. Make certain that you take time to water the flowers and plants in your garden of hopes and dreams. The end does not always justify the means so make your daily life creative. Take time to smell the flowers along your path. You will be able to draw encouragement and inspiration by listening to birds singing.

Some Libra Considerations:

Libra is a Cardinal sign. Cardinal signs are assertive.

Libras push to be appreciated and especially to be listened to.

They want their ideas to be relevant. They are driven by

encouragement and relevance in the eyes of others.

They like to share and can talk too much.

Libra is ruled by Venus,

the planet of values and choices, of attraction and repulsion, of beauty and ugliness, and of love and hate.

When negative Libra can be driven by envy or vanity.

They need to develop worthy values so that they have something significant to share. There is a tendency to trivialize.

If one can’t get what or who one wants, one is inclined to take the next best choice. There is a need to cultivate proper selectiveness and self worth. Sometimes one must do without and wait for what one really wants. One needs to avoid choices of degenerating quality and escalating repercussions.

This is the beginning of Fall or the light half of Autumn.

Darkness is increasing and with it involvement and responsibilities increase. Darkness is now also greater than daylight.

The concerns of others predominate and determine priorities.

This is the trigram of Keeping Still, Mountain.

One can easily be pulled into other people’s concerns

And get nothing accomplished for oneself. Talk is cheap!

One needs to learn to wait and listen for appropriate relevance and true value before speaking or acting.

There is a tendency to do nothing unless someone else is interested or cares. Keeping still works in two ways.

Either it puts one to sleep, or it wakes one up in deep meditation.

Meditation is the cultivation of the experience of silence.

In Libra the Eightfold Path is Right Effort.

1. One needs to use their will energetically to prevent unwholesome states of mind from arising.

2. One needs to get rid of unwholesome states of mind that have already arisen.

3. One needs to produce and cause to rise good and wholesome states of mind not yet risen.

4. One needs to develop and bring to perfection the good and wholesome states of mind already present.


Pentans are five degree divisions of the Zodiac in which the zodiac repeats itself creating a sub-level  of meaning. Sub-pentans divide each 10 degrees of the zodiac into 12 sub-sub-signs adding a third level of meaning. The Zodiac sign is the Main Theme, The Pentan is the Special Focus and the Sub-Pentan is the Intimate Detail.

Zodiac Faces

Today we see

the Face of Resourcefulness

Aries: You will be misguided by your own impulse for freedom. Unless you can be very resourceful, other people will gain more from your actions than you will. Expect unanticipated extra expenses!

Taurus: Don’t let anyone hustle you today. Do not be quick to let go of what you have. Don’t let quality suffer. If something is easy it will probably be cheap! Hold out for what you really want!

Gemini: It will be your move today. Your resourcefulness will pay off. Give compliments to others and you will be rewarded. A little flattery will go a long way.

Cancer: If you try to keep up with others you will suffer losses. If you stick to your own resourcefulness and can make the most of what you have, you will make significant material gains.

Leo: Personal vanity will prove costly today. You are inclined to overindulge and overspend. You will be outmaneuvered by the resourcefulness of others. It’s hard to be humble!

Virgo: In the midst of criticism you will find a way to profit. You will accomplish more through charm than through communication. Do not broadcast what you are going to do. If it is worth it, then buy it!

Libra: Personal intelligence when exercised  will reap substantial rewards. Keep informed and the good deals will jump out at you. This will be a good day to network!

Scorpio: You will run into something that you cannot have today. In spite of all your resourcefulness you will not be able to buy what you want. Don’t lose your cool. Be civil and polite!

Sagittarius: Mixed signals will prevail. Just when you try to be pleasant and sociable someone will use their resourcefulness to take advantage of you. Try to be polite and sparing of words.

Capricorn: Possession is nine tenths of the law! There will be many rumours floating around. Do not sell yourself short. Set the price you want in you mind and stick to it!

Aquarius: You will have to put your money where your mouth is today. Your eyes will be bigger than your financial capacity. Be resourceful. Try to make do with what you have and leave the shopping for another day!

Pisces: Do not follow the advice of others today. You could suffer losses through misinformation. Be resourceful and do not gamble. Practical moves will be more successful than schemes or strategies.
