As a Libra Sun Native, this time of year is always a joy, with the campfires burning through the night, the aromas of cinnamon and spice, apple picking, pumpkin carving, hayrides and long drives to view the autumn leaves. The season of Libra brings us a time of pause, a gateway from one season to another, a moment of reflection of all that was planted in our lives- ready to be picked or plucked, and enjoyed in gratitude. When the Moon enters the sign of Libra, it creates a feeling of Autumns' Harvest when it comes to our relationships- romantic, platonic, familial, and to Self. Striving for harmony, a desire for connection, with a sense of community, Libra will put itself aside for the peace of all. With a strong desire for partnership, Libra does not like to go it alone. Feeling a deep happiness in being truly connected to others, they can put their own needs on hold- believing he or she can't "live" without a relationship.
There can be a feeling of needing to conform, or adapt to others' wishes. Burying emotions for the sake of the peace of the relationship.
The New Moon, also known as the Dark Moon, casts a shadow on our emotional/subconscious states, bringing sometimes, hidden or previously unknown issues to the surface for conscious awareness. Falling in the sign of Libra, it can show us where Beauty and Balance in ourselves and relationships with others, is looking to be expressed and experienced. A willingness to commit to a partnership, yet at the same time, afraid of being alone. A need for a partner, as the focus of life and catalyst in order to discover, develop, and realize potential. The Love-Starved Individual. Believing he or she can't live without a relationship, yet frequently is unable to really get involved in one. Constantly changing, non-committal, superficial relationships that are all lived as if they were (now truly and finally) lasting. Great Fear of Rejection. Excessive Conformity. Using the relationship as a nest. The central theme of the development of Self is the encounter with the other person and becoming wrapped up in a partnership. Giving and Taking in Interpersonal Relationships. Conflicts and Reconciliations. Adaptable out of fear of discord and being deserted.
"You shut your mouth
How can you say
I go about things the wrong way?
I am human and I need to be loved
Just like everybody else does."
-The Smiths, How Soon Is Now?
There are times in life when we may put aside what would truly fulfill us, at a soul level- for the respects and wishes of those closest to us. They may not even know, the weight of the judgement they have placed in your heart, until a moment of conflict arises, in which therein, there is no time to explain our hearts desires- only a time for compromise. This Libra New Moon is urging us to listen to our inner most self- and give love to those aspects of ourselves that feel shamed, abandoned, unheard, and unloved. Libra the Sign of Balance, Marriage, and Artistic Aesthetics, grants us the magic we need to birth a new love at this time.
Libras' main concern is creating harmony, maintaining it,...and enjoying it! This applies to the harmony of forms in architecture, art, design, as well as forms of social manners, particularly the harmony in close interpersonal relationships like friendship, marriage, and partnerships. This makes it the sign of the artist, the aesthetic, as well as the mediator and peacemaker. It is a pleasure for Librans to let life become graceful beyond all the dry necessities to bring joy to the senses- through beauty, harmony, and good taste. Despite all the relating to other people, Libra people still do not want to be monopolized. Instead, they love the feeling of freedom. In search for decisions that least disturb harmony (which means not hurting or doing injustice to anyone if possible), Librans need considerably more time than other signs, which explains their famous weakness in making decisions. Actually pained in the process- if unable to come to a clear decision in their head, they can opt for what best suits everyone involved.
This Libra New Moon, is a time for a new you- the You that longs to be heard, to be loved- and to give Love freely, unconditionally, from the deepest regions of your heart space. Let go of all that impedes upon your personal peace- and let the Libra New Moon fill you with a Balanced Love- of Venusian Self-Love, and Bliss. Only you know what's right for you, on a heart level, you can feel into it. Set an intention to release all negative relationships, karmic past-life attachments, and contracts made on a soul level, that have placed energetic judgements upon you- keeping you from true Self-Love, and Divine Partnership. It's time to go within, dig deep, and give yourself the love you deserve, that you been giving to others. Libra New Moon has a message waiting for you there-..."You Are Love."
