This New Moon in Libra is a very spiritual energy and as Libra is ruled by Venus, we are all being brought into a  brand-new spiritual cycle. This Moon has the energy to carry rare opportunities, wealth and positive experiences, it invites you to go deep, release, renew re-energize and balance anything within your personal finances or love relationships that need attention. Some, could meet someone special, or rekindle the specialness of an existing relationship and for others it will be a time of ‘re-adjustment’ and maybe even releasing some toxic relationships. In general, money, relationships, balance and new beginnings are the theme of this new moon.


 Libra rules relationships, love and balance and because of this energy Librans often find it hard to make decisions, because they love to balance the scales, but on the flip side they are very good at looking at all perspectives. At some level you will be looking to find balance at this new moon and to do so, you may have to deep dive into your own sub conscious being. Asking questions such as, Where am I triggered? Impulsive? What patterns exist in my life? What is it I really want?

This New moon is trine to Neptune, it’s very romantic, creative, sensitive and passionate and its greatest vibration is compassion. There is a reminder that if you have any kind of negative energy in existence within your personal relationships, that when we soften our approach, initiate empathy and mutual respect, there can be a true acceleration of our own personal healing. The quote “Don’t judge me, until you walk a mile in my shoes or live a day in my life”. I If you have been aggravated or irritated in a relationship, this retrograde may help you look from another perspective, maybe from your own behaviours, or indeed, understanding the ‘why’ of someone else’s.

We have a square to Pluto during this new moon, which may highlight  obsessive behaviours. For instance, maybe you have a toxic relationship that you can’t seem to get out of, because something keeps pulling you back, almost like your ‘addicted’ to the person in some sense. Now is the time for you to really see where you are, where you hold compulsive feelings around someone, where you are out of control and ultimately using the Libran energy to balance and regain control

Of course, we also have Venus (Ruler of Libra) going retrograde on the 5th (you can read this energy report here). It retrogrades first in Scorpio and then it moves back to Libra. Whilst in Scorpio you may notice a ‘financial reset’ occurring. Where do you need to reassess your spending? How do you feel about your personal finances? How do others affect your personal finances? How do you make more money? Etc. Really, anything that has to do with, inheritance, taxes, partnerships, business partnerships etc, may need to be reassessed and with this New Moon and then balanced from a new perspective. When Venus moves back to Libra, we will all be asked to look at the balance in our relationships. This is an opportunity to honour how you share your energy with people of similar values and vibration, while simultaneously honouring that relationship changes are a part of life and shifts reflect how you have grown within yourself.  To assist in this balance of our relationships, there may be tension and realisations around where and whom you have given your power away to, although this will be the opportunity to balance and attract those people who are aligned with your new vibration. Venus is also square to Mars so there could be a lot of sexual tension or a pull towards someone who may not necessarily be good for you, so ensure you are consciously aware of the ‘deeper meaning’ to the relationship. It’s a time to ‘deep dive’ into all your interactions with others.  Ask yourself questions like, How do I behave with the Dr vs the barista? What do I try to portray about myself to others and why? In a sense this Libran energy is really an energy of ‘rebooting’ the old, putting new energy into existing patterns and beliefs and a true opportunity to step forward with authenticity.


 This Moon energy presents the opportunity to find harmony between the ‘me and them’, which is always fulfilled through empathy, mutual respect, the ability to truly listen and then acknowledge our own conditioned responses. This Moon is asking us to be open and flexible as positive aspects regarding wealth could arise at this time from looking at a current situation with a new perspective. Indeed, perspective is the key word to this New Moon, the proverbial scales, relooking, reassessing and then rebalancing.  What we see is what we create, if we change our perspective, we change what we see. Now is a wonderful time to plant the seeds of a compassionate, well balanced and more cooperative future, not only for yourself, but for everyone else around you.

New Moon Ritual 

Below, you will find a ‘ritual’ that will help you set forth your intentions and manifestations for this new lunar cycle. Obviously, this is not a requirement to complete, but some may find it helpful.

Creating a sacred space:  This does not have to be anything ‘prolific’ but you should set out with the intention of creating a space just for you, that is distraction free and feels comfortable. I find using sage, crystals and a white candle particularly comforting to my rituals, but really you can make this experience as unique as you are! Also ensure that you get a pen and paper to record your manifestations on, although it does not have to be, getting yourself a little notebook to record in each month may be helpful to you.

Preparing for the Ritual: Not only should you prepare a ‘sacred space’ but it is also recommended to prepare yourself energetically also. This really means being kind to yourself, you can do this by having a walk-in nature, taking a salt bath, meditating etc, really ensuring that you are feeling peaceful and calm. I also suggest that you bring a glass of water into your sacred space with you and hydrate when you feel the need to do so.

Grounding: This is something that’s important anytime, for staying connected to earth energy. Signs that you’re not grounded are mania, nervousness, racing thoughts and the like. In a nutshell, grounding, is visualizing energy ‘roots’, coming out of the bottom of your feet, going down into the Earth, through the layers, into the core, and then drawing that energy back up through your feet again. It moves through each chakra, coming out the top and down around you. Try this or another variation of grounding before you set new Moon intentions.

Your New Moon Wishes: After you’ve cleared a sacred space and settled your energy, you’re ready to set your intentions. Make a list of what you’d like to draw into your life and Dream Big! The new Moon is a moment to conjure what seems out of reach, and creating the vision is the first step to making it a reality. But these are not just words on paper. As you write them down as intentions, you are committing to doing your part to make them real. Some call it co-creating, since you’re opening to universal energies to set dreams in motion. Whilst not a requirement I like to label the top of my page “New Moon in …” and then the date. I also write in the present tense, so in essence that what I ‘wish’ to manifest has already happened and I write it from a perspective of gratitude.

E.G. “I am thankful for my continued good health”

Keep your dreams Alive: A big part of success with new Moon intentions is what comes after. Unlike the ‘release of a Full moon’ find ways to keep your manifestations in the front of your awareness. Put them in a visible spot, or keep them in your wallet. Make notes in your journal about your progress (this is particularly helpful because it re-aligns you with the consciousness of the manifestations and helps you see the more-subtle energy alignment shifts towards them. At the full Moon, find ways to take action on those intentions, and celebrate any signs of change.

Reiki New Moon, Healing Circle.

As with every New Moon, I will be conducting a Reiki Healing Circle. By doing so, we clear our energy at one of the most pivotal times of the month, bringing forth clarity, direction and forward momentum in our lives in a much more focused, conscious way. This Reiki session will take place on 8th October and we will harness the energy of this, balancing, healing, harmonious New Moon. The session will take place at 10-11pm BST (London Time).

This is a distant healing session, so you do not need to be physically with me to receive the energy, indeed, you don’t even need to stop your ‘normal’ day to day activities for the Reiki to be sent. However, it is always recommended, where possible, to meditate, during the session as this will prove fruitful to your acceptance of the Reiki. I will however, programme the Reiki to be felt at whatever time you become still and wish to receive. The most important aspect is that you consciously accept the healing energy and know that it is always to your own highest good. Post the session, I will send e-mail feedback to all those who attended.

You can book your spot here.


Free Reiki Candle Service

As part of this healing circle you will also receive 24 hours under the Reiki Candle (so in a sense Reiki flows throughout you for the duration of 24 hours), FREE of charge (normally £5).  For the candle service I will add your name with the intention of ‘working to their highest good’


Natural healing techniques can be used to compliment another health care practice; however, they are not a substitute for a proper medical diagnosis and treatment from a licensed healthcare professional. Healers are usually not medically trained and should therefore never give a clinical diagnosis or interfere with treatment. I suggest that you always see your Doctor, or healthcare specialist if you have any concerns about your physical or mental health.

This Reiki Healing is conducted and prepared with light and love to assist you on your spiritual journey. How you experience the healing will be as unique as you are. Janet Gracey Conscious healing holds no responsibility for the perceived outcome of your Reiki Healing session.
