It’s almost that time again when nature herself takes a pause and we have a chance reset our energy and our intentions. The Sun and Moon meet in Libras stars this Thursday, creating a spark of energy for us to harness, cultivate and make m a g i c.
Each New Moon marks the beginning and end of the Lunar cycle. It is a time of darkness when we are encouraged to go inward and explore the deeper parts of our consciousness. It’s an exciting time, filled with cosmic energy supporting us in lifting the veil between the conscious and unconscious mind.
It’s a time to reaffirm our chosen direction or change our course. A chance to free ourselves of limiting beliefs and design n e w t r u t h s that resonate with our true potential. It doesn’t always happen overnight (although sometimes it does), but continually reaffirming who we are, Moon after Moon, helps us create powerful intentions that lend to magical manifestations.
This month our New Moon is flavored by the energy of Libra. Libra represents harmony and peace. She teaches us balance both in our internal and external worlds. She illuminates the virtues of true partnership, helping us learn empathy and understanding for others.
She’s not all a bed of roses though, Libra is delicate but strong. When called to action by injustices she will fight for what she believes is right: Equality. Libra is represented by the scales, but in a true Libran world, there are no scales. We are all one in the eyes of Libra.
So what can we do with all this harmonious energy? Peace begins within, so that's a good place to start.
Often times we react from habit. Harness the libra energy to shift these habits into a healthier dynamic, where you stay centered and in control. Meditation is always a good place to start learning this art.
Along with cultivating inner poise, this Libra Moon is a great time to reach out to others. As the ruler of partnerships, Libra gives us the courage and the clarity to connect with others and present our ideas. Try it! Allow Libra’s soothing energy to quell any anxieties or vulnerabilities that come up with starting new relationships.
Enjoy this New Moon and the harmony it can bring to your life. Set aside some time to think about what intentions you’d like to create this cycle. Align with Libra to help you form them. Great examples are: I am open to new partnerships, or, I am centered, or I am aligned with the balance of my life. Create your own that resonate with what you are trying to manifest. Repeat them every day and hold on to the vision of what you are calling into your world.
