There is no doubting the fact that the moon’s phases can have an incredible influence over our lives. Consider, for a moment, the wild activities that coincide with the coming of the full moon. However, we often overlook the transformative power that the new moon brings.
Each month as the New Moon sets in, the door is opened providing us with the perfect time for new beginnings and self-discovery. The first phase of the moon’s cycle, the new moon is the time in which we need to set our intentions for the coming month. The goals that you set for yourself now will be inspired and drive your efforts over the course of the month, so choose wisely. Take the time to carefully consider and write down your goals, laying the groundwork for great things to come.
The good news is that this isn’t an energy that is here and gone in a single night. Instead, it lingers with us, empowering our efforts for approximately 3-4 days following its arrival. This is good news for you, as the most recent new moon graced the skies yesterday, October 8th.
However, it’s important to note that this isn’t just any new moon. The October new moon rose in the sign of Libra, a sign known for its ability to find balance and harmony in any situation. This is further empowered by the fact that the sun is also in the same sign, their energies coming together to create the perfect storm. If there was ever a time to set yourself up for great happiness, wealth and success, this is it! Sure, it’s not going to come without effort – but if you want it badly enough, the opportunity is before you.
Look at the goals that you have written down. Are you holding back, setting ‘reasonable’ or ‘realistic’ goals, or you willing to reach for the sky? While not all goals can be accomplished within a single month, this is the perfect time to plant the seeds that will one day harvest into great things. The influence of Libra will ask you to seriously look at your thoughts and plans, refining your ideas in such a way that it increases your chances of success. This will come by fully considering your options and finding a balance between the benefits and risks that you will face.
If you remain open-minded to the opportunities before you, great wealth awaits. However, this Libra new moon calls on you to explore the possibility that success may not come where you most expect it. Instead, a great deal of work and a willingness to step outside of your comfort zone will yield the greatest results.
Combine all this with the energy of the seasons, a time of death, and subsequently, rebirth, and you find yourself experiencing a time of personal growth. Your old fears and limitations will be stripped away and in their place the traits necessary to propel you forward. Take control and make it happen, it is all yours for the taking.
