The October 19th New Moon falls in the sign of Libra and will be calling on all of us to find balance in our lives.
Libra is represented by the ‘keeper of the scales’ which means that whenever we have strong Libra energy, we are called upon to find balance in our routine and also within our heart and mind.
We need both our heart and mind to operate in this world as each holds its own unique intelligence and wisdom. However, many of us get so caught up in our thoughts and mental processes that we forget about the intuitive, softer guidance that our heart can also bring.
Under the influence of this Libra New Moon it is going to be really important to find this balance and to learn how to open up to the wisdom of your heart and mind.
Your heart has many messages to offer you, especially under all of this cosmic energy, so use these New Moon vibes to start tuning in and paying attention.
On a day-to-day level, this New Moon will be helping you to understand how you are choosing to spend your energy.
If something has been taking up too much of your time, or you are struggling to keep on top of things, this New Moon may force you to finally create some balance.
Just the same, if you have been procrastinating with a project or struggling to commit to decisions in your life, this New Moon will also be guiding you to find the balance and start taking more action.
If you find yourself feeling off-sorts with this New Moon energy, ask yourself how you can bring more grounding and balance into your life, and try to approach things one step at a time.
Feeling scattered is a clear sign that balance is needed, so pay attention.
In fact, the reason for this intensity is that the Universe is gearing up to present all of us with some much needed gifts and rewards which will come to fruition over the coming months.
All New Moons represent a time of planting seeds and laying down new ideas for the future, and whatever you plant or conjure up during this New Moon is likely to be extremely abundant and prosperous come Full Moon time.
Ultimately, October’s New Moon is extremely lucky and holds a lot of potential, you just need to be patient and pay attention to the cues from the Universe.
While Libra is also about finding balance, it is also about serving and being compassionate towards others. It is about putting yourself in other people’s shoes and finding compassion and empathy for other beings and nature.
Under the influence of this New Moon, it is also going to be important to think about balancing your connection with others.
If you find that someone is draining your time or constantly demanding things from you, it may be time to put some boundaries in place and learn how to say ‘No’.
Just the same, if you have been facing conflicts with someone and can’t seem to find a resolution, perhaps take a moment to put yourself in their shoes and see if that helps you to gain a new perspective.
As Wayne Dyer says-
Sometimes when you change the way you look at things, the things you look at change
Overall, October’s New Moon is guiding us to find our balance. Perhaps you can think back to what ground work you were putting into place back in April 2017when the Full Moon was in Libra.
This was the last time we were all working with strong Libra lunar energy and perhaps now you are being given the opportunity to keep building and growing whatever you started or was a theme for you at that time.
No matter what message is delivered to you under this New Moon, it is all going to come back to how you can get into balance and find equilibrium in your inner and outer worlds.
For those who have not found balance in their lives, or for those who have been ignoring the cues from the Universe to get more aligned, this New Moon may deliver some events or feelings that force you to do so.
There is a slightly abrasive energy surrounding this New Moon, which can cause you to feel scattered, off balance and chaotic, but as long as you pay attention to what needs to be done and find your balance, you are going to sail through just fine.
Reflect, for a moment, on the anticipation and excitement that floods through your soul during that moment when you set foot upon unchartered land – the overwhelming uncertainty coupled with a paradoxical eager hunger to push on regardlessly; the heightened senses acutely alive taking in everything; the fear of the unknown strongly contained with a matrix of necessity that this HAS to happen; and the projections through time towards an envisioned summer when the fruits of the dream flourish within the warm golden rays of a perfect day.
Yet, when a seed is planted, there is a time of invisibility wherein it appears that nothing solid has happened and the groundwork laid has yet to yield but a single stem; where all that develops does so silently and quietly, underground, imperceptible to the eye. Anticipation can yield to frustration, as patience is tested amidst the plentiful distractions whose purpose is to keep your dreams and hopes at bay, buried beneath a mountain of mundane chores, paperwork and administrative bureaucratic red tape. It is during that ‘in-waiting’ time that it can feel that the world is neither solid nor real, that all hopes have been waylaid and impatience builds as concrete evidence of your investment ‘appears’ to allude you. In reality, however, what is really happening is the world in which you have been housed is fundamentally altering.
We are living through such times. And we have been there before. And we will be there again.
Do you reckon people realised that they were living through a Renaissance, a Reformation, an Industrial Revolution or a Romantic Era? Yet, retrospectively there are moments when it is clear that ‘something’ within consciousness shifted and the rules changed. But it took time – the seed was planted, for many years it appeared nothing happened and then there was a time when the earth trembled, just before the stem emerged from the seed.
We are living through that time now.
The seeds to our ‘current’ collective awakening were sown back in 1993 and between 2017 and 2019 we are living through a crisis, or turning point, to establish what to do with that new matrix.
You may have not have awakened in 1993, but the freedom to truly see through the illusion of the mechanised, hierarchical system was planted and we are now living through a deep time of questioning and accelerated change, where every facet of our personal and collective reality is being rent asunder as this new way of being starts to emerge from its underworld sojourn.
Within this time there exists a vital energy, a life force that is quickening, eagerly beckoning you to translate through you the unique expression of your cosmic DNA. And remember, there is only one of you in all of time. Your expression is utterly unique. Remember too, that as you awaken, no one can ever claim you, nor can you live within the old scripts and patterns. As you open up, you realise that you cannot confirm or fit into someone else’s version of reality. As you remember that you were not born with an incomparable cosmic code merely to be pushed into a battery farm and your creative life force sucked dry by an ‘O’Brien’ whose duplicitous hallow promises of a life free of stress will be granted if you willingly give over everything to the Ministry. As you reclaim your independence, your relationships change and the roles that are expected of you feel redundant, as you seek to voyage beyond the insipid frontiers to where the danger of transformation and transmutation dwell. As the Veil thins you can see through the illusion of how things have been, as you cannot avoid seeing how colonised you have been at all levels of your being – from the legacy of the ancestral scripts that lie within your DNA; to the genderist roles expected of your biology; to the wasteful filling of your mind with needless facts that serve no real purpose but to fill time and make you into a conformist android.
And now, no longer willing to squander your soul on undertakings and relationships that do not nourish your Path and soul, your patience has grown thin with deadening conversation and unauthentic living. As you have started to see through the rosters of expectation, the empty promises of outer success no longer have a hold over you as you want your life, your relationships and your soul to become a conscious expression of your gift. You have started to realise that you are not imprisoned, just asleep, something actively encouraged by the constant distractions feed by a dying feudal system that requires slaves to make it work; a system built in a way that pushed you in a direction where you imprison yourself. You have started to realise your true nature, free from the limitation of gender, relationship status, economic background, accent, creed and sociology. You have started to see through the inequitable system that has divided your attention, filling your feeds with lies, deceptions and entertainment. You have started to see the unconsciousness spoken through so many people’s monochrome voices. And you have started to believe that you have an inalienable right to be you.
As that dawns you on, your external world changes and tolerance for maintaining the status quo diminishes. That is having an impact on your relationships as you no longer communicate falsehoods nor want to be in the presence of those who are not prepared to own their Shadows. As you openly breathe out your truth, a genuine possibility that exists within you because of the existence of Libra within you, those who have known you need to take warning – you are far different from what you have been; you are no longer resonating at the same frequency that drew those into your life in the first place; you no longer think in the same way; you no longer accept the roles that are assumed; you no longer play to another’s ego; you no longer want to be in the presence of unkindness or lack of humanity; you no longer want to remain on the Wheel, chained to an infinite rotation of the same patterns and scripts; you no longer wish to sleep and you no longer wish to feel numb.
And now, there is nothing that is forcing you to imprison yourself. And now, you cannot be silenced. And now, you have to speak truth. And now, you have to speak out. It is not the time for silence. It is not the time to slumber. That is why you have felt exhausted as your sleep has altered due to the re-wiring of your nervous system; your diet changed, as your body cannot accept toxicity in any form; your relationships have gone through the mill as you feel punished for changing and not accepting bad behaviour; and why you have felt so alone and drained, as it feels as if those from your former life do not understand why you need to walk this Path.
As the Inner and Outer Lights unite within Libra on the 19thOctober, you are offered the opportunity to speak with a fresh voice and to openly express your truth, without censorship or without hindrance. The space that I hold for you during the forthcoming initiation is to see you breathe into your Eternity, held by a great ring of pure and endless light, with calmness and clarity surrounding you, as you are held and bathed within a matrix of pure conscious intention, giving you confidence to speak forth your truth. Your truth matters. It always has. You’ve just needed reminding this past few months and now, you are afforded the opportunity to speak up and speak out, without judgement, anger or fear. You voice carries the seed of 1993 on it. Your ideals are helping the emerging matrix gain clarity. Your perspective is giving shape to a paradigm of inclusive unity, where the waking mind no longer dominates and that the interiority of our souls is given priority over the shell that carries us.
The rules have changed. Your frequency is not raising, it is merely expanding. But have you let that permeate you?
The 2017 Libra New Moon asks us to clarify our awareness, witness what’s out of balance, and let ourselves fully see the illuminated path towards change, says Sandra Sitron.
Crimson, vermillion, and pale pink. A flamingo stands in a marsh, deftly balanced on one leg. Soon, the bird dozes off, nestling into flame-colored feathers, becoming even more balanced as consciousness fades to sleep …
This Libra New Moon is a balancing act. As the only sign of the zodiac that is a machine (not an animal or person), Libra shows that when the scales are equally weighted, harmonious stillness is the automatic result.
In the focused silence of this moon, we find out what areas of our lives need calibration. The relationships that are off-kilter. The life areas that may spiral out of control if left untended.
This process may feel overwhelming. So slow it down for a second. Take a deep breath of relief. This New Moon is not trying to add another thing to your to-do list. This New Moon does not need you to “get it together.”
For those of us who are always working hard to stay balanced, this might seem strange. It’s the paradox of this New Moon, especially when the Moon’s opposition to Uranus, the Great Awakener, shows us where harmonious stillness does not abound.
But watch the flamingoes. Curiously, the birds are more secure in their stance when they are balanced on one leg. It’s a more stable position! The act of balancing requires less effort.
While balancing might seem like more work, once you have achieved it, everything becomes easier.
