New Moon in Virgo/Libra

All relationships, whether they are interpersonal, casual, or family will come to some sort of an ending.  This is not unusual as Mercury is still going and enforcing sporadic energy.

On October 16, 2020 we will have a New Moon in Libra at 3:31pm EST and 12:31 PST at 23 degrees depending upon the orb.  On the grand scheme of things, it could be wonderful.

This is a flawless moon to converse, design, and initiate those plans and things that are tough to talk about. With Venus in Virgo, nature is to nurture.  Mercury is in Scorpio. It’s like a flawless marriage.  It has always been associated that Virgos and Scorpios make the best match, as the match is unpolluted kindness yet gets straight to the point.

Both Virgos and Scorpios are healers and often make ultimate sacrifices, thus making this moon even more influential upon everyone.

The New Moon signals a time of endings to make space for new beginnings. But this moon is not a usual new moon.

For many Hindus it starts the first day of Navaratri (9 nights) celebration.  This celebration is usually celebrated twice a year but is more popular in the fall because it borders Diwali (festival of lights).  Navaratri is known as a celebration of thanks given to three deities who provided powerful energy needed for creation.  The number 9 represents 3 days of thankfulness to the 3 feminine deities with special abilities.

The festivities of Navratri will begin on October 17, 2020 (Chandra Darshana) when Goddess Shalputri is worshiped; she is represented as the daughter of Lord Himalaya named after Himalayas.  She is the embossed as a deity of the moon, therefore, anyone that has negative effects of their moon can receive the needed healing. Often times she is referred to as the younger version of Goddess Parvati.  She is worshiped for 3 days beginning on October 17 through the 20th.

October 18, 2020, Goddess Parvati, who is known as a wife to Lord Shiva and mother of Ganesha, is also known for her sacrifices. She will be worshiped in all her forms which lasts for 3 days. On the first day, in her truest form, a maiden, is referred to as Goddess Brahmacharini.  The 19th of October will represent her second formation as a wife Lord Shiva, she comes in form of a protector and peacekeeper, manifesting herself, and is known as Goddess Chandraghanta.

The fourth day, October 20, 2020, celebrates receiving the blessings of Ganesh to bring forth wisdom and unconditional love to humanity.  This is also for one to be blessed to start a new year with healing and love.

Two days of Saraswati blessings begin on the 21st through the 22nd.  She is known as a wife of Brahma (the creator) whose blessings are known as speech, either through music or even knowledge. Whether this is verbalized or heard it is the universe’s way of gearing us to the path of righteousness.  The 22nd will mark the day of puja and offering of flowers, food, and water.  This also marks day 5 & 6.

On October 23 ,2020 Durga will be worshiped; her religious name is Mahashtami or Maha Durgashtami.  Durga is known as the destroyer of all impurities such as deception, lies, and harm to women and children.  October 24 will not only mark the 8th day, but it is also a day of puja to lure evil away from humanity.

Even though there are 9 crucial nights of Navratri, there is also a significant ending through penance called Dashami.  However, on the 9th night there will be fasting and prayers for Durga. Some traditions are that there are half days of fasting whereas people only eat fruits and nuts and drink water during the 9 days and eat a meal at night which is blessed by the priest; the fast is broken on the 10th day. During the 9 days there will be a color which people wear on all the 9 days with 9 different kinds of sweets (Prasad) being offered.

It has continuously been asked by many why feminism power has been such a magnificence rather than masculine.  This is because Hinduism is the only way of life where mother is the formation and the absolute to life. Therefore, just as we need masculinity (the world we live) we need the feminist view (the emotions we feel) to feel and do things out of love of one another.

With a moon in Libra, there is a need for a sweet relationship with a loving partner to feel at harmony and peace. There will be endless assessment of feelings to seek just the right balance with others. A burst for beauty and art can direct these in a sensitive way.

Libra Moon needs a close friendship, partnership or marriage to feel cherished and safe.  In emotional situations, the Libra Moon tends to act very rationally and attempts to make sensible choices.  Hating a fight, Libras use diplomacy to work their way out of conflict.

People will have robust understanding and attempt to please others.  This comes from the Libran search for congruence and balance, for the Libra, nature highlights collaboration. I also would not be surprised if Texas, Michigan and North Carolina are highlighted, additionally Greece, Switzerland and Jamaica will also be in the mix

During every full and new moon, I bring forth tendencies specific to the astrological sign highlighted by the lunar events. The principal placeholder affected by this moon is the sign of Libra. For Virgos, it is suggested to look at the new moon in Virgo for your predispositions here.

For all others to gain the best prediction of your scopes, according to VPAT, it is suggested you find your full moon predisposition under “Vedic Post” on the main page here

Additionally, it is suggested that you combine that with the last lunar and solar eclipse in June and July.  Within one month these will change, according to the eclipses in November and December.

Additionally, from September 24 through November 19, including the Mercury retrograde tendencies will give you an overall picture of the good, bad, and advice. Read more about it here.


Sweet Libra, though this was not that bad of a year, I would say Mercury retrograde may have made your head spin (read more here).  For the remainder of the year, it is time to bring collaboration through family and career structures by mending all conflicts.  You will find this new moon will bring you changes in your career life, but only if you use your charm in front of you.  Be extra careful during the months of the eclipses as difficulties in communication could cause other difficulties, leading to stress. Additionally, using prudence in your spending will assist you with extra savings.  Your romantic life will soon get better; just wait until Mercury goes away. There could be family reunions or just time with family at the end of the year.

Saturn: You have great success that is heading your way at this time; however, boasting will not get you far.  New projects and short trips are also on the horizon for you.  However, be careful with financial investments.

Rahu: Financially, things will be a roller coaster ride and conflicts with family members are also possible.

Ketu: There could be health problems with family members or partners, and delays in travel or vacations are possible.

Uranus:  It is time to plant the seeds for your career.  If you must invest do it wisely and unexpected gifts could also fall into your lap.

Jupiter: Handle all aspects of work conflicts with collaboration.  Your career path will start to be enhanced and financial situations could also get better.

Maharani’s Advice

Precious Libra, Just think of it this way only 2 more months and you can finally press the “on” key. Remember, mercury does not last long, only until November 19, 2020.  But for now, it is time to take responsibility for those who you love by being kind and modest.  Rebuild those relationships that have tarnish there is absolutely no label for those relationships. When you do so you will notice nature brings blessings after another.  Something sweet is heading your way in November if you are religious or not you might find your wishes are being granted.  Only if you are soft spoken.  Be careful in November with your finances.  As we move into December your creative juices are flowing and you are ready to be a leader your career.  Keep your face and voice full of smiles and love which will help you create the ties you need for the following year.

It’s a good time to form relationships of all kinds such as friendships, marriages, and business.

This is an exceptional time for artistic work as the beauty of Venus is combined with the rational ease of an air sign. Altogether, it’s a lovely time for social gatherings, when the consciousness of self, as expressed in the first six signs of the zodiac, becomes united with the awareness of the needs and desires of others.

Since moon in Libra represents Charming, Attractive, Luxurious, Fair-Minded, and Loving, it is my suggestion for us to remain balanced.  This new moon is extraordinary to many signs.

It is my suggestion that you purchase a yellow candle and carve your name through to the wick. Anoint the candle with lavender oil or peppermint oil and chant the Psalm 26.  You may also choose to recite a mantra every morning until the next moon cycle.

Remember that with all applications of psalms and mantras achieving the desired result is dependent upon the quality of intention, and when it comes to finding satisfying relationships, it is of the greatest importance to begin with a clear understanding of what your goal should be. The mantras can be hard to pronounce for many but are a powerful source of energy.

The mantra for Libra moon is:


Om Shree Mahalakshmyai Cha Vidmahe Vishnu Patnyai Cha Dheemahi Tanno Lakshmi Prachodayat Om

(Aumm shri ma ha lu xmi maya cha ved ma hee Vi sh nuee pat nya I cha cha dhi ma hee ta no no Lux sh Mi Pra cha do ya t om)

This mantra produces quality of friendship within oneself and others.

The intention of this mantra is to smooth your path in life by helping you understand the lessons you have set for yourself, and through karma the negativity will be surpassed with every moon cycle.

Remember to cross out the old affirmations, even if there is a slightest change, and create new ones. The perfect number for aspirations is 10.  This means to list 10 aspirations and recite them every night until the next moon cycle. 

Also remember, never make the affirmations begin with “I balance”, they must be worded “I need balance in my life with friendship and love.”

Please note that I am not an astrologer, however, the groundwork for a Vedic reader is the foundation of Astrology which works in harmony with Saturn, the planet of difficult lessons, and Asma (intentions) to bring a beautiful trine of resolutions, and clarity to bring with it sublime bliss to every aspect of the human soul.

Wishing a safe and loving journey through is magnificent moon

Happy Navarti to all.
