Another late post: Libra New Moon Goals

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?

            Practice yoga

            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.

Libra New Moon Goals

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.
