Happy New Moon! In the relationship-oriented sign of Libra, this lunation can make us very sensitive to the emotions of the collective. We are all feeling the energy of where things are out of balance, in our day-to-day lives and on a broader spectrum. Libra is all about harmony and peaceful personal connection, but the more shadowy side of her scales is avoiding or ignoring what isn’t working, sweeping what’s unpleasant under the rug in order to maintain the appearance that everything is lovely and fine. Uranus, The Awakener, is in direct opposition the this moon, with action-oriented Aries power at the service of his radical tendency to stir up chaos, excitement, and the breaking of patterns. What was once hidden is being brought to light and it may be painful, but we need to support this release and honor what is coming up. We do this by holding space, witnessing and listening rather than averting our eyes, and curbing our judgement or the inclination to react to the release of others as if we’ve been attacked. In order to find equilibrium, we must recognize and allow that which we would rather pretend doesn’t exist, in ourselves, in our experiences, and in others and their experiences.
This lunation is also encouraging us to find the balance between our hearts and minds, loosening our grip on the chattering thoughts and mental processes that so often guide us and opening up to the intuitive wisdom of the heart. Pay close attention to flashes of insight or unexpected events, weird dreams or chance meetings. How do these relate to how balanced or unbalanced you feel in this life? As always, New Moons are a wonderful time to set fresh intentions or start a new project, so find a way to use what comes to you to move you towards a positive future compelled by love rather than fear. <3
