So the moon transitioned through it’s new phase this past weekend (I’m a few days late in the posting), and it went through the Libra constellation. This means that there are only three months left in the year. So we’ve left behind Virgo season and moved into Libra. This means that I now have less than three and sixty days before I hit the big four-zero (more posts on this in the coming months).
But since we’re still in the new moon phase, what are some of the things that one can do during this time?
Look at how you’re relating to people (this is the time of year when the energy should be more on the giving than the receiving side).
Look into your partnerships (are there issues that need to be sorted out?)
Negotiate—figure out a way to bring things into balance if needed.
Look gorgeous—work on improving your self-image (and self love).
Regain your identity—if there is unhealthy co-dependency issues, figure out how to resolve them.
The moon is also moving through my 12th house—or my secrets zone. This is the time when you really just want to retreat from the world for a while and work on things. But what some of the things that one can do during this time in regards to their inner self?
Take a break from social media and/or numerous social obligations
Start a dream journal
Face one big fear
Trust your intuition
Buy a meditation CD & use it every day for a month
Write poetry from the heart
Share one of your secrets
So this new moon for me means finding a balance between being somewhat social and working on calming the mind/chatter (inner peace if you would). I realize that I’m a work in progress on a lot of things—and mental clarity/calmness is one that I’m striving for.
So making my goals for the Libra new moon:
Meditate nightly—I have some nature CDs on my iPhone that I bought via iTunes—they’re calming (at least for me) and no one is talking.
Practice yoga—there is a little yoga in one of the workouts that I’ll be doing over the next few weeks.
Regain my identity—this doesn’t have anything to do with unhealthy co-dependency issues (unless you consider all my jobs to this point have been in an academic setting)—but try to figure out who I am and what I want to do with the next half of my life.
I’m hoping to get back into a schedule for posting for the end of the year–the last few months have been “off” for me–though I do realize why–we’re coming up on the year anniversary of losing our two oldest dogs last year (the first anniversary will be next Friday, with the second one the following Tuesday). Hopefully I can focus on planning my reboot break, transition plan, blog posts (and possibly trips) and work my way back out of the little funk that I’ve found myself in the past six weeks or so.
