New Moon In Libra - October 1st, 2016
Here we are, in Australia, following on from last month’s energy of 9 and the endings that implies, to our new beginnings of 1’s energy. (For those readers who find this lunation falls at the very end of September, hang in there!! you’re in your final moments of the 9’s energy and will, very shortly, also be in October with the energy of the 1.)
Libra is the sign of relationship, represented by scales (of Balance and Justice) and ruled by Venus (Goddess of Love and Beauty) making the highest vibration of this new moon’s energy, new beginnings in Love and Connection.
As the Sun (masculine) and the Moon (feminine) join together in the sky, in the sign of relationships, this is energy of the sacred alchemical marriage of the masculine and feminine within, which we can then share with others, from a space of wholeness and Oneness.
Libra, with the element of air, and air being the quality of the mind and intellect (represented by the Swords in Tarot) is all about relating.
With Pluto making a square to this lunation, this is challenging but transformative energy, which can be harnessed to affect wonderful change for ourselves and others.
Pluto is asking us to look at our relationship to power and how we might use our power in our relationships.
This is our moment to free ourselves from any ties that bind, and any attachments we have that might limit our potential to embody our soul’s truth.
It is also the time to look at how we are communicating our truth to others.
Are we are wielding our double edged sword with kindness?
Love is the most powerful force we have and when we are attuned to the energy of the heart, we are able to communicate most effectively from our heart space.
The scales of Justice are asking us to walk the middle path. “The middle path is the way to wisdom” Rumi
"Instead of making others right or wrong, or bottling up right and wrong in ourselves, there's a middle way, a very powerful middle way. Could we have no agenda when we walk into a room with another person, not know what to say, not make that person wrong or right? Could we see, hear, feel other people as they really are? It is powerful to practice this way... true communication can happen only in that open space.” Pema Chodron
Let's celebrate our differences, whilst remembering our Unity. We are ONE unified field of consciousness, expressing through a myriad of forms.
Find yourself a quiet space and Honour yourSelf within that Sacred Space
Close your eyes and take 3 long deep breaths honouring Libra with it's element of air and draw that down into your main energy centre of the Hara/Dantien, just below the belly. You may like to place your hands here to assist in focusing your awareness and energy at this centre.
As you breathe in feel the connection to your own power.
Honour Venus as the ruler of this Lunation with a further 3 breaths, and give Gratitude to Her for the Love and Beauty she now bestows on you.
Honour your own Masculine energy, the energy of the Sun who bestows the gift of Life force upon you with a further 3 breaths, now feeling the Balance within, and then affirm to yourself -
Be True - to myself - at all times
Release any need to people please
Offer Love, Compassion and Forgiveness - to Self - and other
Take the Middle Path
LOVE LOVE LOVE
and Know that you are indeed Love and that you can bring the gift of your Love and Truth to offer the World.
In our Heart and Mind - May we all know Love and Connection - As the True Essence of our Being.
So Be It.
