I love Libra, and Libra’s New Moon cycle offers some amazing opportunities for reflection. It also holds abundant gifts of appreciation, balance, peace, and harmony through connections with others.
So, let’s center ourselves. Let’s breathe into this moment, this space, when the Moon is in the balsamic phase of darkness just before her new light returns in Libra tomorrow, September 28, 2019, at 12:26 pm MDT. The balsamic phase is where ideas coalesce, so let’s marinate here for a moment.
Continuing to notice our breath, let’s feel our feet on the ground rooting into the Earth – and let’s feel our hearts lifting and connecting to the Cosmos.
When we’re centered within ourselves in this way, between Earth and Above,
we’re in the realm of Aries.
The journey from fiery Aries to airy Libra takes us from our centers into the spaces that exist between us. The New Moon in Venus-ruled Libra reminds us that the quality of the space between us depends on what we bring to it.
New moons in general are ideal times to set intentions, and this one has some amazing aspects that offer much potential for us to manifest them.
One of these aspects is the New Moon’s opposition to the asteroid Chiron in Aries, the wise healer that supports our survival. If we’re willing to step outside of ourselves on the way from Aries to Libra, we can see our reflection in others. If we’re willing to go even deeper, we’ll appreciate our ability to mirror them, as well. Bravely taking this journey with compassion guiding us brings balance and harmony to the ways we live, heal, and express ourselves.
Another potent aspect of this New Moon in Libra is a T-square to Saturn and the South Lunar Node in Capricorn, and the North Nodal Node in Cancer. This connection helps us release lessons and habits from the past that no longer serve our best expression. It also reminds us to adopt a willingness to take responsibility for practicing loving self-care and for fulfilling our needs.
Finally, this New Moon makes an exact inconjunction to Uranus in Taurus. A conjunction is a supportive aspect where energies pair up close to each other, while an inconjunction is the opposite. Inconjunctions require us to notice the disconnection and correct our course, if needed. Uranus in Taurus wants us to really get in touch with our values, and the New Moon’s aspect to it implores us to connect with what really matters so that we can restore balance and harmony to our lives.
The upshot of this New Moon is that it’s time. It’s time to show up and make our intentions matter, because they truly do. Together, we can know and appreciate balance, peace, and harmony – where we all mirror the best of each other. Let’s do this!
With much love and harmony, always,
