This morning (11.05am) the New Moon cycle starts.
And as always this is a powerful marker for your diary
Firstly this heralds a new chapter opening in your life (look at where 13 degrees of Libra is in your natal chart to see exactly the area of your life being influenced)
And secondly, any intentions that you make right now will continue to surge throughout your life for the next six months.
Now, this New Moon is in Libra – the sign that is connected to balance, harmony and justice
However as Libra is ruled by Venus – the planet connected to relationships
You may well find that themes connected to others in your life are brought to your attention
Especially if the energy is unbalanced.
Libra is the only sign to be represented by an inanimate object – the scales
And while scales are primarily an indicator of balance
To earlier civilisations scales had the power to influence the destiny of your soul
In Egypt, the scales were the attribute of the god Anubis, the god who resided over the Underworld
Part of Anubis’ role was to weigh the heart of any newly decreased person to decide whether they deserved to be admitted to eternal life
So balance and particularly the consequences of being out of balance may well come into your focus
And while New Moons are the best time to put new behaviours in place
It’s important to remember that right now Mercury is still in Retrograde
This happens three times a year for three weeks
Rather than moving forward, this is a time to revisit and review that which has already been set in motion
So this is a particularly powerful time to look at what is currently on your own personal scales
Particularly the relationships that are in your life
Because this New Moon is about refining and rebalancing what you already have
And finally Libra is an Air sign
This means that it is connected to your mind and how you process information
So it’s especially helpful to take notice of your thoughts.
Air signs are gifted at stepping back and seeing the bigger picture
If there was ever a time to reassess your internal equilibrium
And look at what alterations and shifts want to emerge
This would be that time.
