October's New Moon in Libra - Expect A Relationship Cleanse
By Laurie Barraco
The exact time and date of the New Moon in Libra will be Monday, October 8th, 2018 at 11:47pm eastern and what an interesting cosmic time it is! It seems as if humans, animals, birds, plants and Gaia, our Earth Mother, are all going through several different purging processes. Our weather has been really off, the waters have been turbulent and toxic, there is an increase in animal/marine life attacks and the rage and anger that has been tucked way down deep with our fellow sisters and brothers is surfacing and demanding society’s attention.
There is so much that can be talked about in detail about this New Moon however, spirit is guiding me to talk about the deep upheavals that are taking place with our relationships. All of our relationships are requiring attention, re-evaluation and then taking the necessary steps to bring balance into our lives. I am referencing the giving and receiving in our relationships; romantic, familial, career, friendships, acquaintances, our bodies and also the relationship with self.
The New Moon is in the sun sign of Libra. Libras are all about balance, justice, diplomacy, detachment and are at their best when they have healthy partnerships. The challenging aspects of Libra are they tend to remain in relationships that are not always for their highest and best good because they tend to feel incomplete without being paired with someone.
It’s an excellent time to purge what is toxic in your life; health routines, relationships, and spirit will be a bit forceful with helping you to really let go of what isn’t serving. Libras are also notorious for being overwhelmed when having to make executive decisions.
Whelp, this New Moon has some interesting celestial influences that will help with our indecision and the cleansing process has already begun and has been full force for the last few weeks. Venus has gone retrograde, the New Moon is square to Pluto and is conjunct Ceres.
Breaking Down The Celestial Influences:
How can we tap in and utilize these energetic influences? As these cosmic windows open up for us, it is important that we remember these energetic influences are meant to be tapped into as a collective to shift the consciousness on our planet as part of our soul’s journey. We can be lax and allow life to happen to us causing us to be more reactive and remain in a state of victimhood OR we can address each emotion, situation, intuitive nudge and relationship with a conscious awareness that all that takes place is purposeful for our individual and collective evolutions.
Suggestions To Make The Most Out Of The Current Shifts:
This New Moon in Libra is a mighty and powerful one. It will help give the meek a voice and courage and it has the potential to help all of us get rid of the gnarly, stagnant and deep-seated caca that we know needs to go go.
