#183 The Astrology Forecast for the New Moon Solar Eclipse in Libra


The themes this week are…

1. Intense

2. Relationship

3. Rebalancing

Mars transits into Scorpio, the Fixed Water Sign, which it rules, bringing a powerful and perhaps even volatile intensity to intimate relationships. The New Moon/Solar Eclipse in Libra intensifies this frequency all for the purpose of rebalancing your relationships.

Face the conflicts or tension that has been creating stagnation or agitation in your intimate bonds. It is the only way to make your way to peace. Something is out of balance and it is the conflict that is pushing you to shift the toxic frequency that has been stuck.
