In astrology, we track all of the planetary movements across the zodiac and make interpretations based on how the planets interact with each other and with the zodiac signs. The Moon travels quickly, taking 28 days to cross the whole zodiac, and during that time it spends roughly two and a half days in each zodiac sign.
The Moon’s core astrological energies rule our feelings and our emotions, as well as our subconscious reaction and our idealistic notions. As the Moon visits each zodiac sign – called a Moon transit or a lunar transit in astrology – so each sign influences those core energies in a subtly different way. This is why you may notice that there are different vibes or moods in the air on different days.
Born With the Moon in Libra?
If the Moon was transiting Libra at the time you were born, astrologers would say you have a natal Libra Moon – in other words, in your birth chart, the Moon is in Libra. If you have a natal Libra Moon, you will seek emotional balance and harmony above all else, and you’ll easily become emotionally troubled by conflict. This planetary influence adds charm and grace to your personality, but also indecision.
The Transiting Moon in Libra
The overall flavor of a Moon in Libra transit is harmony. During this Moon transit, we are urged to avoid or end conflict and to return everything to its proper balance. Emotions are generally well regulated at this time, and it’s easier than normal to forgive and forget.
The Libra Moon transit is also a dose of peace and beauty, often accompanied by an increased interest in the arts or in diplomacy. People often think of Libra as passive, but this is a cardinal zodiac sign and wants to create change. For this reason, we can think of the Libra Moon as an idealist Moon: these energies are all about striving for the ideal in a very unideal world.
On a personal level, the Libra Moon transit is romantic, gentle, kind and sympathetic. Loving words come easily during this transit, but it’s also very easy to get away with something by being a charmer. The Libra Moon transit energies can be a little bit gullible and easily led, with people saying what they think others want to hear. Sometimes, sincerity is lacking, even though we don’t mean to be insincere.
When the Moon is in Libra, you might want to:
- Tell your sweetheart how much you love them
- Get married or engaged
- Forgive someone
- Ask for forgiveness
- Mediate between warring friends or family
- Strive for a fairer future
- Surround yourself with beauty
- Think about the greater good
Your Moon in Libra Horoscope
Aries Horoscope During a Libra Moon (Aries dates: March 20 – April 19)
When the Moon transits Libra, your love zone is activated, making this an especially romantic few days for you. You’ll appreciate a slightly slower pace of life and the chance to spend more time with your loved ones. The airy Libra Moon energies are a bit vague for direct, focused action, however, so you might not be able to get as much done as you normally would.
Taurus Horoscope During a Libra Moon (Taurus dates: April 20 – May 20)
Taurus and Libra are both ruled by Venus, so there is much in the transiting Libra Moon’s energy which feels comfortable and familiar to you. You’ll make the most of romance with this transit by making your lover feel special, but it’s also important to take care of yourself. The indulgent Libra Moon does enjoy the finer things in life, so watch your diet and your alcohol intake.
Gemini Horoscope During a Libra Moon (Gemini dates: May 21 – June 20)
When the Moon transits your fellow air sign Libra, it plays to your fun-loving strengths. This is a very good-natured transit for Gemini, good for partying, socializing and dating.

Leo Horoscope During a Libra Moon (Leo dates: July 22 – August 22)
During the Libra Moon transit, you get the gift of the gab. Libra’s airy, diplomatic vibe adds to your charisma and makes it possible for you to charm just about anyone. Be very careful about insincerity though. If you don’t really mean what you say, you’ll be found out during a Libra Moon transit. It’s important to walk the walk as well as talk the talk.
Virgo Horoscope During a Libra Moon (Virgo dates: August 23 – September 22)
When the Moon transits Libra, your money zone is activated and you can treat yourself for once, enjoying a tiny touch of luxury. This harmonious energy helps to soothe your worrying mind too, and it even quiets your famously harsh inner critic. Overall, this tends to be a very positive lunar transit for Virgo, with plenty of reasons to smile.
Libra Horoscope During a Libra Moon (Libra dates: September 23 – October 22)
The Libra Moon transits your own sign roughly once a month, and these are your favorite days for sure. You’re at your charming, most sociable best, and people are paying attention to what you say. Artistically your skills are strong now, and you can use these gentle, romantic, intuitive energies to create imaginative artwork as well as to woo your sweetheart.
Scorpio Horoscope During a Libra Moon (Scorpio dates: October 23 – November 21)
Your normal Scorpio laser focus is a bit off during a Libra Moon transit, as your thoughts wander, and your attention is caught by every latest curiosity. It’s therefore not a great transit for getting much done at work – but it is a feel-good few days, packed with laughter, love and friendship. The Libra Moon energies help you to take life less seriously for a short while.
Sagittarius Horoscope During a Libra Moon (Sagittarius dates: November 22 – December 20)
The Libra Moon transit highlights your love of fair play and justice, and during these few days you’ll be especially keen to see fairness in all areas of life. If you see something unfair, do something about it! Remember, for all its gentleness, Libra is a cardinal sign – the Libra Moon transit can help you to persuade others with charm and reason rather than your normal brash fashion.
Capricorn Horoscope During a Libra Moon (Capricorn dates: December 21 – January 19)
When the Moon is in Libra, your career zone is activated, so this should be a good few days for the ambitious Capricorn. To get ahead at the moment, though, it’s as much about your soft, social skills as it is about what you know. You hate that but play the game and see where it leads. Success is much easier won now, and that’s what matters most.
Aquarius Horoscope During a Libra Moon (Aquarius dates: January 20 – February 17)
When the Moon transits your fellow air sign Libra, your restlessness is activated, and you’ll want to see fresh places and fresh faces. With so much air energy in play, there could be a lack of grounded emotion, however. Don’t over-intellectualize your feelings during this couple of days. Not everything has a rational answer, and not everything can be achieved through logic alone.
Pisces Horoscope During a Libra Moon (Pisces dates: February 18 – March 19)
The Libra Moon is generally light and harmless energy, but for Pisces, it can have a darker side. During this transit, you may feel under pressure to conform or to act as others want you to. Preserving your independence could be a struggle, and you may be afraid to rock the boat. Work hard to stand up for yourself and don’t allow a lack of confidence during these days to get you down.
