New Moon in Libra
Thursday, 11th October
The Libran new moon is represented by the scales and reminds us to walk the middle path. We need to find the balance between following our hearts and compromising to accommodate others. This is a time to create harmony in relationships both personal and professional.
All year we have been getting a clearer understanding of who we are and what our true purpose in life is. This moon cycle we must find the way to fulfill our desires while working in cooperation and harmony with others. Think before jumping to conclusions. Negotiate rather than attack or go on the defensive, and be diplomatic while standing firm with what you believe in. The Libran moon reminds us that we must listen more, trust more, and be more understanding to those around us, even when we disagree.
Libra also re-energises our lives and relationships. We may experience a new sense of love and respect in our present relationship or, if single, we may find that we fall in love at first sight. Enjoy this time as we take pleasure in working, interacting and playing with others in a supportive and loving environment.
When we work as a team we are so much more powerful. Jesus said â€˜Blessed are the meek for they will inherit the earth.â€™ Living in harmony with ourselves and others gives us a sense of self worth. We receive a deep feeling of peace that permeates throughout our being and into the Universe, touching all those around us as we become the change.
RITUAL FOR THE NEW MOON
This new moon is a time for creativity to flow and re-energize our relationships and dreams. In order to take full opportunity of this power we need to get in touch with what is holding us back.
Once we face the truth we become empowered to change it. The dark moon allows us to find that quiet space within where we can remove our â€˜maskâ€™ and accept who we are with real honesty.
Sit in a quiet room â€“ be patient and wait until you have completed all your tasks for the day and you are ready to give the time to yourself. Light some candles and burn incense to create an ambient space. Sit in a comfortable position with your back straight. Close your eyes and become aware of your body. Connect deeply and slowly with your toes, legs, thighs, torso, arms, neck, face and then crown. Exhale all your stresses and release all your frustrations, just breathe them right out of your body. Repeat this process three times.
Take a piece of paper or your journal and write down these questions:
How do I create a more harmonious life?
How do I create more harmony in my relationships?
How do I create more balance in my life?
How do I create more joy in my life?
How do I create more abundance in my life?
How do I unlock doors that are keeping me stuck in the past?
How do I release the fear and follow my heart?
Allow the questions to permeate into your being and ask the Universe for help and guidance. Gradually, as the moon waxes to full, it will bring you the answers in many different forms so that you can make the changes to move forward in your life with confidence.
