Moonbeams: Authenticity & Inner-demons
The New Moon finds the Sun and Moon both in the sign of Libra. Libra represents the cosmic mirror- where we project ourselves onto others- the good, the bad, and the ugly. This NM will show us how we have been unbalanced in our dealings with others. Have we been too self-sacrificing, or too self-indulgent? Either way, there are issues surrounding authenticity present at this lunation.
Uranus making an opposition to the New Moon is forcing us to approach our imbalances in a new way. We can do this by embracing our differences and respecting those who disagree with our choices.
The New Moon making a quincunx to the wounded healer Chiron suggests our own mirrors have become very distorted. The blinders are coming off. Perhaps we won’t like what we actually see, but Chiron is letting us know that we might have to confront old issues and pains around suppressing our true nature.
Jupiter and Mercury both being conjunct in Scorpio is helping us to bring back our power (Jupiter) by first bringing to the surface secrets buried deep within and processing them through logic (Mercury). Healing can only occur when we first clean up sewer (Scorpio) so to speak.
We can clearly see the themes from this NM in the media today. Seedy exposes around power, sexual abuse, and secrets- Harvey Weinstein being the prime example.
The major lesson the New Moon in Libra will offer us is to speak and live our truth to induce deep rooted healing. Venus the ruler of this moon is unaspected meaning her energies are free to do as they wish. Approach everything from a place of love as opposed to hate to help release your own inner demons. This will allow you to get back into your body and frequency without having uninvited visitors lurking in your underworld.
The song ‘Demons’ by Imagine Dragons perfectly captures the essence of this lunation. It’s about warning a significant other (Libra) about your demons. For so long things and feelings of ours were treated like demons- something evil and powerful. Guess what? Now as a collective we are experiencing a major exorcising of all of humanity’s demons.
