October’s New Moon falls on the 19th and will be in the sign of Libra – Libra who loves to love, and gives us balance in all things.
This New Moon invites us to ignite new beginnings, as our ancestors have done for ages, feeling the excitement of new intentions and possibilities stirring within us. We are at the end of one cycle and the beginning of another fresh, new cycle.
This approaching cycle offers us a good period for committing to personal goals that express the positive energies of the sign of the Scales.
Libra is a sign ruled by Venus, so no matter what sign you are, this new moon will infuse your life with creativity, specifically in your relationships. The problems that came up during the full moon in Aries now have a chance to really settle down as you come up with creative ways to problem solve, or to settle into a new arrangement that both parties will be pleased with.
Some of Libra’s “lessons” involve learning to make peace with those around us, as well as in our environments, establishing a sense of order and balance in our lives, and recognizing the value of partnerships. This is an ideal time to work on these skills. Libra has an innate ability for, and love of, synthesizing opposites. Peace and harmony are the goals, but there’s a fine balancing act involved along the way that requires some commitment and effort.
With all of these energies swirling around with the New Moon, there is sure to be focus on social connections, business, popularity, and trends. Setting new intentions in these areas will have the potential for great success. Love and partnership is an art. Harness the artistic talent of Libra within yourself to create the partnerships and relationships you desire.
This New Moon brings fresh and creative energy into our lives, and more specifically, into our relationships. This is a cycle in which balancing our close personal relationships becomes an urgent desire.
Regardless of where you are in life, this new moon will create a chance for you to clean up and take care of the changes that the full moon called for. Also, being in the sign of Libra, you’ll make these changes with ease. You now have an opportunity to really create the balance and stability your life was lacking before.
Here are some simple ways of creating A New Moon Ritual for yourself:
Clear your Energy to get centered. Take a salt bath or space clear your energy with sage, a feather or a flame.
Get Grounded. Connect with the elements of air, water, fire and earth.
Set Your Intentions. Declare to the new moon what your vision is – declare it boldly and with courage. I suggest writing them down and then speaking them loudly – by physically speaking them you symbolize your intention to manifest your goals.
Express Gratitude. From your heart and your soul believe that this IS granted to you and express gratitude.
Act. After your ritual or ceremony. Act. Take those steps forward toward your goal daily. You will be surprised by what transpires between now and the next Full Moon – a time of manifestation.
