We have officially entered Libra season - the season of balancing and realigning to our true selves. It’s a delicious time. The seasons change. The weather cools. Collectively, we feel the need to nest and make room for the things that truly bring us warmth and joy in our lives. The New Moon on the 8th is a beautiful time to set intentions for the new season and really begin some serious manifestation.
Venus also went into retrograde on the 5th and will stay there for 40 days. It’s a great time to connect to all of your relationships, romantic or otherwise, in a more authentic and honest way. Our sensuality is heightened, as well as a deeper understanding of love and our intuition. Our heart centers are open and vulnerable. Really take the time to center that energy + calm intensifying emotions. It’s a delicate time, but also a delicious time to reconnect with those who matter in your life.
October is all about your inner balance and strength. How can you turn inward and focus on using yourself for stability rather than depending on others? By connecting with your true selves and follow your intuition, you’ll be living mindfully and following a grounding life full of abundance and peace.
It’s all there, inside you. You have to dig deep and unlock your inner courage, wisdom, creativity, kindness and compassion. Begin a grounding practice and physically go outside, barefoot, and connect with the Earth. Allow yourself to breathe and focus inward. From this grounding, you’ll be able to show up to yourself and follow a more present and mindful life. It’s all about that balance. The balance between living and existing, between the divine masculine and the divine feminine, between giving and receiving, it shows up in every aspect of our lives.
Take this next cycle to find where you may need balance in your life and put in the work to realign it.
New Moon in Libra
We have a New Moon in Libra on the 8th. This moon is all about finding harmony within, then bringing that internal stability to all areas of your life - your relationships, work, etc. Libra is the sign of justice, ready to stand up and fight for our beliefs. In this delicate political season, it’s SO important to speak your truth and raise your voice. We need more of us standing together. Only as a large collective unit of female voices can we truly make a difference.
This New Moon is all about connecting with our inner peace so we can physically and mentally prepare for balance shifts in the Universe. Take the time to return to your center and vision a future you hope to create + manifest.
Welcome the New Moon with Palo Santo for energy clearing before an intuition setting practice, meditation or moon circle. Bring out your favorite moon card deck (like The Moon Deck) for inspiring thoughts + emotions that are ready to come to the surface.
Take some time to journal with the following prompts:
A New Moon is a time to reset intentions for a new cycle ahead. What intentions do you want to cultivate at this moment? They can be physical, mental, emotional or spiritual.
The New Moon phase is a time to attract new people into your life, begin new projects, interview for jobs and invoke more clarity and spirituality in situations in your life. Where can you re-evaluate and plant new seeds?
Libra is all about balance. Love, partnership, harmony, diplomacy, beauty and legal matters in general. Where can you examine the work you need to do in these areas of your life? Where can you bring more balance into friendships, relationships in general, partnerships?
Love yourself, deeply. Take the day slowly and be kind to emotions that continue to rise + fall within you.
