Finding Common Ground
Are you settling just to keep the peace?
When we have this yearly New Moon in Libra it is always an opportunity to set new intentions around being diplomatic and finding common ground. I feel this an important focus right now considering we are in full swing in regard to the mid-term elections here in the U.S.
There has been and still is a lot of division in the world and it is my hope and dream that we start to find a way to come back together. Have conversations and healthy debates but not let it divide us further as it has over the last few years.
To me this is a global and collective focus, but what about you? Have you been divided from those you love over the last few years? Are you feeling like this might be the time to make a peace offering or sit down and try and have a conversation.
Just a thought and one of many ways we can use this Libra New moon.
On a more personal level this New Moon increases our awareness around what we need in our most important relationships. Are you receiving what you need from your partner? Are they getting what they need?
This goes for business partnerships as well as any other one to one relationship.
Then we could also ask ourselves, is there an area in life where you feel you are making too many compromises or settling just to keep the peace? If this is the case for you, now would be a good time to use the power of this lunar event to set some new goals into place.
Take your time we have a few days while the Moon is in the New and Crescent phases to write out our intentions.
Here is a special note for those of us that are not always keen on making wishes or goal setting but still feel drawn to use the New Moon energy. I would like you to re-read what I have already written, nice and slowly and see if anything stirs some feelings within you. If so, write those feelings down. If not write out whatever else, you are emotional about at this time.
For me and my rituals I find asking myself how I feel is more useful then setting material-based goals. That is my personal choice, and you know what? You can do both if you are so inclined.
When I write out how I am feeling:
1st it is the beginning of understanding what the root of an issue is.
2nd this process starts some healing.
3rd keeping track of how we feel is important. Each New Moon begins a 3 year cycle that is known as the Lunar gestation cycle. I am not getting into the details of that technique of Astrology at this time but just knowing there is a longer cycle then just this month is helpful to me.
Sometimes a month can fly by and knowing we actually have a few years to work through some things is beneficial.
In addition to all this the New Moon is opposite to Jupiter in Aries and that adds to the power of what we need and how we are able to ask for it. Jupiter always expands everything it is connected to even when retrograde and being that it is currently in the fire sign of Aries this can be quite dynamic and energizing.
Since Aries can be self-centered and impulsive a single individual may be the catalyst for our New Moon goals, intentions and feelings.
Thank you, my friends, for your love and support. I am eternally grateful for each of you.
Spread the love thickly over the coming few months, we all need an extra dose.
