Happy New Moon in Libra!! As we are approaching the end of 2017 and all that this 9 year brought and will bring us, this New Moon is asking us to set boundaries and reevaluate where we are with our relationship to self and others.
Libra is the sign of the scales and balance. It is about boundaries and being mindful of the other in all relationships and then seeing what we need to do from there in order to allow our energy to be held and protected. The scales of justice that are the symbol of Libra allow us to remember to consider the other in a way we might normally not. Don’t get confused though — this doesn’t mean abandoning of the self or prioritizing others over you. The scales are there to keep us in check and be mindful of others, but never do this at the expense of you.
Additionally, we have the asteroid Karma into play with this New Moon, as the sun is currently conjunct it. Karma is in charge of the energy around relationships, especially those given to you to heal past life wounding or other karmic attachments in this lifetime. Increased energy and heightened awareness about who you are in these settings and how you want to be showing up will come into play for you.
Reflective questions for this New Moon are:
- Knowing Libra is the sign of the scales and justice and asks for there to be balance in order to feel peaceful, in what area(s) of your life do you need more balance in? How can you find more middle ground for yourself?
- Noting the aspect of sun conjunct asteroid Karma and the companion energy Libra, what is coming up for you in terms of relationships (with self, with Source, with others)? What is the karmic lesson the Universe is telling you it is time for you to learn at this time?
- Reviewing your answers for number one and two, what are boundaries you want to set for yourself in order to make sure what you have identified can be turned into fruition. There are physical boundaries, yes, but you can also set energetic boundaries or boundaries with your thoughts, etc. Trust what your body is telling you.
- Every New Moon is about planting new seeds and harnessing new energy. What do you want to plant for yourself this New Moon in Libra? Write 3-5 affirmations for yourself that will mirror what you worked through with the other questions. Reminder: affirmations are positively-tensed, first person, I AM sentences. Some examples: I am honoring and listening to my body and its needs. It is easy for me to focus my thoughts on building my highest potential
Happy New Moon!!! Blessings, healing, and love to you xx
