On Tuesday, October 9th, the New Moon enters Libra.
Themes of this New Moon are harmony, balance, and beauty.
The New Moon in Libra asks you to look within and examine where you can find balance and harmony within yourself. Your outer world is a reflection of your inner world, so take time this New Moon to write out where you’d like to find more peace within your body, mind and spirit.
Rather than retreating to a solo place, Libra is known for finding balance and harmony amongst the craziness of her surroundings. Where can you find more balance within yourself when the chaos of life is surrounding you? Focus on the beauty you see in the world during this New Moon, and see where more of that beauty starts showing up as you shift your focus. We often are told the Universe is always speaking to us, but keep in mind it’s a two-way conversation. Spend time thinking (or writing a list!) of all the things that make you feel peaceful and happy, and ask for more of those things to show up for you. Balance and harmony are available to you, you just have to make it a point to truly harness those feelings, and this New Moon is the perfect time for doing just that.

New Moon Visualization: Close your eyes and imagine yourself walking through a garden. Envision all the luscious green and vibrant flowers. As you’re walking through this garden, feel a strong sense of peace. Eventually, you spot someone coming towards you. As you get closer, you see it’s the most radiant version of yourself. Sit down with them and ask them how they got through any stress or struggles that you’re currently facing. Listen to the words of wisdom that they speak. Stay for as long as you’d like, and remember you can always go back and visit this garden, visit you, whenever you need to.
