The NEW MOON is almost upon us. Thought I could post this a couple of days ago, but work got in the way. The energy sure is shifting lately and many of you are riding the waves and some of you are having a difficult time finding your balance. Well, this is a prime time for that balance in relationships and otherwise because the NEW MOON appears at 8:03am EDT Monday morning, October 15, 2012, in 22 degrees of Libra. The Libra Sun/Moon conjunction is about balance and relationships and saying what needs to be said. As you already know that New Moon is about setting intentions that will get you through the next 4 weeks. So, take the opportunity to do so and set those intentions that are coming from your heart. This is an especially beneficial time for focusing on relationships. When was the last time you pondered the strengths and weaknesses of your relationship? Is there something you wish to manifest now after honing in on the ups and downs of said relationship?
Since the New Moon takes place at 8:03am EDT I am going to ask you this. If you are in a relationship is it still an important asset to you and your life or has it become a liability? And you think what do assets and liabilities have to do with this? Well, some of you still think in the material plane and since that is where the assets and liabilities exist, I thought you might relate better to what I am saying as those terms filter into your relating. What can you do to turn it into an asset? Perhaps you may want to talk to your partner and actually speak from your heart. That would certainly be a positive action. Of course, I hear some of you saying that that other half doesn’t hear what you say. Do you come from a place of love or do you raise your voice and come in anger? I know that love works even though there are those of you who hesitate to come from the love place because fear sets in due to past experiences. This is the time to change that dial. Reach out from the heart in a divinely loving place and see the difference in the response you receive. This NEW MOON gives you the impetus to create something better.
As you approach the New Moon you may wish to think about what direction you choose to take your life; what path is the right one for YOU; and how do you feel about it. What can YOU do to bring the real you to others to see you clearly as you really are. AUTHENTICITY keeps popping up. If you are walking someone else’s path and not your own, this is a perfect opening to shift that. You have to walk your path no matter who tries to pull you onto another. What do you choose to create from this time of the New Moon rising? Do you know that this is a perfect time to do something that is truly you and not about someone else. Do you realize that you need to say what is in your heart and throw out all those superficial thoughts? Find a new way to relate instead of using the same old stuff. There is no balance in relationships if those involved are untrue to themselves. Look at you and look at the relationship. Are you really doing what you came to do, acting in the way that is really your true self and honoring the other’s true self? Balance comes then. If you realize that your actions or your words are not really you and you think…this is not me…then change it now. And even if you read this down the road a bit, you can still change it. Yes you can.
This is the time to restore the balance. Harmony is the key word. You all have issues with past, present and maybe future but the rock bottom line is this…a new beginning can always take place and at a New Moon it is especially auspicious. Another thing that this Libra New Moon brings to you is passion. Do you know what your passion is? Since Mars and Uranus are in good aspect during this New Moon it is saying to you if you haven’t found your passion, then now is the time to dig deeper for it. Find the direction that can open new songs in your heart and new ways to relate. Fear be gone. What are you waiting for?
As the New Moon rises, Jupiter is trining it from Gemini. This helps the creative mode of the New Moon. This also adds to the communication end of a relationship. So you can come up with creative ways to express yourself and approach your partner or anyone to whom you are relating. Just imagine, a new perspective on loving communication can take place. Express that love because it comes quite easily now. Those of you who have planets around 22 degrees of Aries, Cancer, Libra and Capricorn will find it more intense around this moon. On October 28 Venus and Mars are more conducive to flowing. When these lovers are in sync, life is grand. Now they will be more balanced, more harmonious. The fiery Mars and its energy is fanned by the airy Venus. This too is about creative balance in relationships. If you begin something at this time with another you will see it expand as the Full Moon takes place at the end of October.
Libra New Moon is about balance, harmony and relationships as I have stated throughout this post. It is a time to speak from your heart and staying in that power without letting anyone take it from you. It is better to be your authentic self than someone else’s image. It is a time to move on from the old and into the new, finding that fear never did anything for you anyway. Now did it?
May your blessings be many and may the Light shine brightly upon you. Have a beautiful week filled with wonder and joy. Remember joy is what it is about every single day with every person you meet or to whom you relate. JOY is the elixir. Remember that. Until again. Love, Jan
