New Moon in Libra October 8, 2018: Redecorating

The energy of this New Moon is that of change. Libra rules over appearances, specifically the many faces we wear and the deceptive old adage that “nothing is at it seems.” Libra energy looks to balance the desire for truth with the desire for security. How comfortable are you in your life? Why are you enduring discomfort when you have the power to change? Are the seductive lies you’re telling yourself worth more to you than your own happiness? It’s during this New Moon that we are being called to modernize our lives.

The Aspects

Sun square Pluto- a strong desire to control coming from the old withering away

Sun quincunx Neptune- your eyes are playing tricks on you

Moon conjunct Ceres- self care

Ceres square Pluto- the outside clashing with the inside

Libra energy refines and with her ruler Venus in retrograde in Scorpio it’s more about Redecorating. Think of your life right now as a room. What does it look like? Is it cluttered? Is it empty? Do you feel comfortable and secure in it? Or does it make you want to leave? If I had to guess, I would say it’s looking a little vintage right now. Venus retrograde is dusting off those boxes of old memories and pains and is putting them under the window to allow the sunlight to shine upon them.

A New Moon in Libra is the time when we feel most unlike ourselves. We’re going back and forth between the past and the present, inspiration and regret, acceptance and denial. This is so we can get better in touch with ourselves. Since Libra is such a visual energy, the way to bring some beauty and charm back into your life is by changing the way you look at things. Maybe that old tattered armchair just needs some reupholstery? Or maybe that mirror needs a new frame? What about a fresh coat of paint on the walls? The cosmic climate is not conducive for massive life altering changes right now. But what is supportive is the acknowledgement that everything has a purpose and that is what true homeostasis is…turning what seems like trash into treasure.

New Moon in Libra October 19, 2017- That’s Where My Demons Lie

 

Date: Thursday, October 19, 2017

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.

 

 

 

 

Moonbeaming: Shadow Self in Full Force

My goodness, what a challenging New Moon in Libra this has been thus far. Right at 8:11am Eastern time this morning, the New Moon reached its full capacity and wreaked its havoc on me.

This New Moon is associated with the goddess Lilith, which is all about our shadow sides. My Lilith is in Pisces, which is about hypersensitivity and the inability to say NO. At school today, I was pulled into some drama that did not concern me, as 2 cliques whom I both speak with are turning against each other and am trying to force me to choose sides, although none of them are my friends.

Being an empath is not helping the situation as both sides of this situation are full of emotional vampires. My Lilith makes it challenging for me to put my own needs first, because I like to harmony and peace.

I am starting to wear Black Tourmaline which has helped to eliminate all the negative energy in my auric field…..I already feel a lot better.

My Lilith is also in the 10th house, which means I will encounter these emotional vampires in public settings such as school.

Look to see where your Lilith is in your natal chart and its sign…..no doubt you will be working with this goddess quite a lot during this next month.

New Moon in Libra: Black Beauty

Date: September 30/October 1

Time: 1:11am Universal Time, 8:11am Eastern Time

Moonbeams: New beginnings, transformation, love, self-worth, shadows

Welcome to our first new moon after the eclipses, which is brand new energy magnified. This is also the second new moon of September if you are in the Americas, which is known as a Black Moon.

This new moon is happening at 8:11am Eastern Time and 1:11am Universal time, on September 30 in the Americas, and October 1 everywhere else. The energy of October will also be coming into play which is the 10th month of the year which reduces to 1…………..look at all those ones!

This new moon is going to see the beginning of something new, an entirely new you, the birth of something new, especially in terms of love. This really won’t be fully seen and experienced until our Full Moon in Libra happening next year, around April 11. But this doesn’t mean that parts of the new you will be hidden. Quite the opposite actually. The sun and moon are together in Libra at 8 degrees which is all about saying goodbye to what is no longer serving you, but in order to that, you must first confront the shadows.

Our Black Moon is associated with the goddess Demeter. Demeter is the goddess of harvest, whose rage at having her daughter Persephone kidnapped by Hades is the representation of fall and winter when growth dies. The rebirth is when Persephone is reunited with her Mother in the Spring. We must be careful during this moon to be extra careful about our thoughts. They co-create our reality. Yes, there is a divine plan for each of us, but our free will comes to down to our thinking patterns.Whatever you want to create in terms of all things Libra & Venus- beauty, love, art, creative self-expression, now is the time to do some visualization and intention setting around those themes. Imagine you have already acquired those things. Embrace that energy! Neptune is trine Venus which is all about spiritualizing love. When you think about soul mates, or spiritual self expression, what does that look like for you? Jupiter is square Mars in Capricorn, so set realistic goals for yourself, without over-committing, find the balance. As well, our moon is conjunct Jupiter, so the possibilities are endless, now is the time to dream big!

We will come to see what is truly holding us back during this lunation as Libra forces us to look our shadows in the eye. A really simple way to do this, is to think back to January when you set those intentions for 2016, how have they been coming along? 

This is only  way we can plant the seeds for our spring bloom during this season of harvesting.
