So as we enter the second week of October, the moon is entering the Libra constellation and it’s latest new moon phase. Since this is the last quarter of the year, there are only three new moon phases and three full moon phases left in the year (it’s hard to believe that 2018 is almost over—where has the time gone?).
So what are some of the things that one can do during the time of the Libra new moon?
How well are you relating to others?
How are your partnerships/relationships (personal and/or professional) doing?
Is there anything you need to negotiate?
Are you feeling good about yourself?
Regain your identity if necessary.
So in addition to looking at various aspects of one’s relationships over the next two weeks, the new moon in Libra is also passing through my 12th house—or my secret zone. This is the time when one usually wants to retreat from the world for a bit—and truthfully it probably couldn’t have come at a better time with the way the world is going. This would also be beneficial as I’m still trying to narrow down the positions for my transition plan (and by narrow down, I’m talking about trying to figure out the biotech hub areas that I wouldn’t mind moving to and then seeing what companies are in those areas and starting to look into them more). This is the time to start trying to listen to your dreams, and getting in touch with your spiritual side.
So some of the things that you can do during this time include (according to “Moonology: working with the magic of the lunar cycles” by Yasmin Boland):
Try some yoga and meditation.
Take a “time out” from social media.
Dictate your dreams in the morning (use your phone, or old fashion pen and paper).
Try to face one big fear.
Trust your intuition.
Write some poetry from the heart.
Share one of your secrets.
So what I’m going to try to focus on for the Libra new moon include:
Getting back into meditation (I’ve been trying to do it nightly, and some nights I just can’t get into the groove)—but I’m going to aim for doing at least five minutes of meditation each night.
Continue working on my transition plan, and also make it out to the GeneTown Connect networking event later this month.
Continue to work through the various e-courses that I’ve bought (again trying to remember to take notes so that I can also make a blog post out of what I took away from the course).
Start working on the science blog posts.
I will also continue with my hybrid workout calendar (LIIFT4 and probably InsanityMax30) and trying to keep my nutrition under control.
