IMG_2950On 10/12/15 ET the Libra Moon becomes a New Moon, to welcome fresh starts in new and existing relationships.

Since this is also the U.S. Columbus Day, the relationships involved may be on the national stage, to continue to bridge and balance the U.S. government with the native nations. At this writing, the count is 9 Cities Abolished Columbus Day.

This is only one example of stark differences between groups of people. The U.S. has many schisms of values within its massive geography. Another example is the huge rift between gun owners and those who advocate gun control. A sea change surges through the internet as one retired policeman offers sound ideas on gun ownership laws. He offers a compromise, which may take momentum with this coming New Moon.

Many countries have wars and atrocious attacks on one another of great scale; may the Libra New Moon symbolize a shift in awareness throughout the world. The energy is available but it is up to the people to take action towards integration and acceptance.

On a personal level, you may feel quite jazzed to initiate partnership or declare a commitment, but only if there’s a strong mandate for individual expression with the relationship. Declarations of differences need to be declared overtly, otherwise resentment or frustration wells up until an outburst occurs.

Overall this offers a brilliant beginning when the overall goal is equitable exchange. You may feel this drive particularly intensely if you have strong Aries, Cancer, Libra or Capricorn in your horoscope.

The Libra New Moon occurs at exactly 8:06 PM ET. At this point, the Libra Moon goes void-of-course/voc* through late afternoon tomorrow.

The Sabian Symbol for this New Moon is an “Old Rabbi sits contentedly in room crowded with books”. This may seem like a strange image for a new moon that can spark fresh ways of relating, but actually, it is perfect.

A rabbi is a wise one, a scholar, a master. He sits with the source of his enlightenment, the books that have given him an ease and a peace in a restless world. This contentment, which takes work and reflection to achieve, is the first step to self-love.

Not everyone on the planet gets to that contentment by reading and interpreting sacred texts. You may be someone who experiences through movement, working with your hands or interpersonal relationships.

As we actively engage with life, we appreciate the present moment. When you are able to be content with who you are in the moment, you are receptive and open to a beautiful relationship with yourself. When content in your life, you build a solid foundation to attract right relationships.

If you experience discontentment, it is in your power to shift this. Where can you be at some point today that gives you a taste of peace?

If it seems impossible, then perhaps you can do a meditation that allows you to create a tranquil environment in your mind. At least close your eyes for a few minutes, slow your breath to a smooth pace and picture something you love without ambivalence: a beautiful spot in nature, your pet, a loved one.

Don’t worry if it seems challenging at first or doesn’t come together quickly. It is a practice.

That means every day, give yourself some quiet time to breathe and focus on something or a place that you love.

When you do this regularly, you fill your reserve and have more to give.
