Our New Moon this month crests at 19 degrees of Cardinal Air sign Libra at 7:05 PM EST on the 12th day of the month. Bringing us a beautiful breath of fresh air and a jaunty flair, we will be able to begin to balance our lives with a renewed outlook and an optimistic attitude. Mercury went Stationary Direct at zero degrees of Libra on the 9th, which will improve our ability to take care of our daily tasks with a bit more ease. Venus will enter Virgo on the 8th at 12:30 PM EST, changing from elegant Leo to staid and practical Virgo will impede her more lavish ideas! All of these changes in such a short time may bring some confusion or unexpected happenings into our lives. Still the energy of any New Moon is a positive happening and we can have confidence that something good will come of it!
Libra needs, indeed, requires balance — beautiful, smart, and avid our Libra folks can easily be thrown off their game by little annoyances, or just the unexpected. Airy and ethereal, Libra brings beauty, love, marriage, relationships, friendships, and a special kind of brilliance that can befuddle us and can blind us to reality! Having difficulty in deciding between two choices, Libra can be stymied and short circuited because She just cannot choose — it’s the same with two divergent selections in any field — politics, religion, law, education or everyday options. Libra sees the advantages and disadvantages of Both sides of the question, idea, choice or controversy! Even if it’s just choosing an article of clothing, Libra will hem-and-haw over each blouse, shoe or jacket, and will probably end up getting both. Many of the “dual” signs have the same issue, but not to the extent of our Libra brethren. However — whatever they choose will be in good taste and beautiful to behold — and as for other perhaps more important choices, they will endeavor to seek out the very best qualities of each, and then agonizingly make a decision that makes sense to them and that they are comfortable in choosing.
With the Sun in Libra until entering Scorpio on the 23rd, we have a pleasant time-span to connect with our partners, find balance in our lives, and bring beauty into our homes. Libra beckons us to infuse our lives with all that is honest and pure, attractive and useful, and a pleasure to behold. Never one to dance to another’s tune, Libra casts Her spell and creates a home with exquisite good taste and fresh flowers in abundance. Artistic, musical and dramatic, our Libra will find a home at a theater, concert, opera or museum — whether on stage or as a sponsor — our Libra folk will find their niche and make it their own. Usually gregarious and outgoing (Cardinal sign) they have many friends and admirers. Ready to help with their many ideas, talents and abilities — our Libra brethren will be a source of succor in many instances throughout their lives.
Busy with all that life has to offer, our Libra partners, spouses, and friends may not take the time to think about themselves — especially health-wise. It may be up to their nearest and dearest to keep an eye out for any issues and bring them to the fore. Possibly stoic in their need for a balanced life, they will ignore any little warning signs of impending ailments. Intelligent and sprightly, they have an air about them that refutes their true age — any lower back pain, kidney issues, or skin concerns should be dealt with promptly. Maintaining a steady and balanced life is their constant goal, their significant other will have to be aware of their intense need to have a schedule, be on time, and make sure their home is a haven of peace and tranquility. Want to feel truly free — unclutter your life — clean out the garage, the storeroom, that closet that is always askew, and perhaps your desktop! It will make you feel lighter and more in control.
Of course, we all want an idea of what we should wish for on the New Moon — anything and everything is on the table — but the most power is generated when you use those ideas that are close to the sign’s heart! For instance — Libra rules marriage, partnerships, decorators, tailors, dressmakers, beauty shops, courtship and clothing. So any wish or affirmation that has to do with these areas will have more connection to the New Moon in Libra and therefore will employ the energy with more zest. Just starting a relationship — perhaps you can wish for a compatible contact. Is your house looking a little shabby — you might ask for a good contractor who has reasonable pricing — but especially if you need a new wardrobe — more harmony in your partnership — need more cooperation in your job — this is the New Moon for you!
Try to think about your affirmations in a meditative mood — let your mind release any angst or concerns you have, and just allow your spirit to bring what you really need into your mind’s eye spontaneously. Breathe slowly and imagine what would better your life and the lives of your loved ones right now — perhaps think about the coming Holidays and see if you can intuit the best gifts for each person. Sometimes it is just your presence, or time, or listening skills that will fit the bill. Feel the essence of all those who have crossed over, and beseech their help, while sending them good thoughts, love and a free spirit. Dig into your psyche to find what really matters to you at this time. Slowly start to write out your wishes, affirmations and desires — let it be almost effortless and ethereal. Close your eyes and let your imagination soar — then read what you have written. Does it say what you truly want it to say? If not — tweak it a bit and come back to it in a few hours and reconnect with what you have written down. Take your time to be honest and clear about your needs and desires.
The New Moon in Libra crests at 7:05 PM EST — so all evening of the 12th and all the next day will be advantageous for writing out your list. The more you believe in your ability to influence your own life for the better, the more success you will eventually have come into your realm. Our thoughts have a solidity that seeps into the Universal ether and can take hold to become your reality. And I believe that the good we send outward does come back ten-fold. My wish for all of you is that you find your true bliss — find fulfillment in this lifetime — and evolve into the mystical energy that is truly the unique essence of your being. Peace!
