Aligning with the New Moon, by Molly Rose
A new moon occurs when the sun and moon move together in the sky and are positioned in the same zodiac constellation. The deeply feeling, intuitive, feminine energy of the moon merges with the fiery, passionate, action oriented, masculine energy of the sun. Together, these two celestial bodies ignite a powerful possibility of new beginnings in both our individual and collective consciousness.
The new moon is the beginning of the lunar cycle, it is the time when farmers who followed the lunar calendar would plant the seeds for the crops they planned to grow in that coming season. Just as those farmers, when the moon is dark we are invited to tend to the fertile soils of our internal landscape and plant new seeds of intention. What are you envisioning for yourself in the coming month? Is there anything you’ve noticed yourself thinking or daydreaming about more frequently recently?
The energy of each new moon is colored by the energy of the particular zodiac sign that the sun and moon are sitting in. On Saturday September 28 we have the new moon in Libra, an air sign ruled by the planet Venus. Venus represents all things love, beauty, and abundance. Represented as the two scales, Libra herself is a sign of balance, harmonious relationships, and justice. Therefore the focus of your manifestations this new moon may be around love, self-worth, money, health, and relationships.
The ritual of creating a vision board is a fun way to use the new moon energy to help you dream up and call in your future desires. Allow your creativity to flow under the guidance of the moon in Libra to help you clarify where you can level up and step into a higher vibrational state in these particular areas of your life. In what ways can you invite more balance, love, and harmony into your relationships with both yourself and others?
