We are celebrating a new moon in Libra today (06/10/21). New Moons are a time of rebirth and new beginnings. They give permission for us to clear the slate and start afresh. A new moon always takes on the characteristics of the sign in which it falls. As this month's new moon falls in Libra the emphasis is on balance, harmony, luxury and partnership.
This is a perfect time to start new projects, to set you intention for the month ahead. Here's our guide to working with the new moon in Libra.
Set an intention
A new moon brings with it an extra boost of intention-setting energy. Harness this special energy to manifest what it is you truly desire. Be as detailed as you can. If you want a new job think hard about what it is, the salary and the location. Looking for a new partner? Picture in your mind what they look like. Are they tall, short, svelte, musclebound... Whatever your passion, whatever you require right here, right now ask the Universe to bring it to you with the new moon energy.
Light a candle
Lighting a candle sheds light on what it is you are seeking. It is a way of asking the universe to guide us to that which we seek. On the night of a new moon light a candle, gaze into the flame and request what it is you desire. Once you have set your intention place the candle in a safe place for it to burn out.
If there was ever a time to start something new it would be during n a new moon. Whether you are thinking of learning a new language, applying for a new job, wanting to ask out that sexy barista at Costa now is the time. The new moon is the most fertile time in the lunar cycle so use its energies wisely. Start everything and anything you feel passionate about. Now is the time for action.
The new moon is the perfect time to go on a first date or to reignite the passion in a relationship gone stale. If you work with the energy of the new moon you will find that you attract the right people to you. Go with the flow and you may be surprised where the new moon takes an existing relationship or one that is new.
Make a list
To super charge your intentions make a list of them and write it down. As mentioned earlier, you need to be as detailed as possible. So if it's a new job you're seeking write down all aspects of it. Do you work from home or in an office? What are the hours you work? What kind of projects do you work on? If you have a boss what do they look like, what is their name? Make it as detailed as you can. The idea is to create an image in your mind of what this situation will look like down to the very smallest of details when you get there. Visualise it, write it down and sit back and watch it materialise. The new moon is magic!
