We're Just Going to Chill With The Moon...New Moon in Libra [Oct 19]

Last week's full moon was a doozy; we had the fiery sign of Aries housing an emotional full moon, and many of us might have felt we'd reached a personal boiling point. Everyone I knew was breaking up with their SO like "byyyyeee, b*tch!"

This New Moon falls in the sign of Libra on October 19th which will ask us to find some balance in our lives, routines, our mind and our hearts. 

During this time we should try not to be so "mind driven" and give in a little to the (dare I say it) heart. Sometimes we get so caught up in our thoughts that we forget to listen to the intuition and guidance that our hearts can bring. 

There are many messages that you will receive this phase regarding matters of the heart. This cosmic energy is going to force you to pay attention aka stop being a hard ass and running from that person who could "make you fall" - stop with the "has it been enough time between texts" or "they'll like me more if I blow them off". Work on doing, saying and being with whoever and whatever makes you happy.

It's also a good time to let go of anyone you're not "really feeling". Libra is a sign ruled by Venus, so no matter what sign you are, this new moon will infuse your life with creativity, specifically in your relationships

On a day-to-day level, this New Moon will also help you understand how you are choosing to spend your energy. If something has been taking up too much of your time, or you are struggling to keep on top of things, this New Moon may force you to finally create some balance. One suggestion is to try making a to do list the night before, and stick to it. I'm OBSESSED with my productivity timer -- it's a major helper so you can avoid being 108 weeks deep in on some guys ex girlfriends sisters trip to Barcelona in 2008.

Just the same, if you have been procrastinating with a project or struggling to commit to decisions in your life, this New Moon will also guide you to take some action and get shit done. No matter what message is delivered to you under this New Moon, it is all going to come back to balance in your inner and outer worlds.

There is also a slightly abrasive energy surrounding this New Moon, which can cause you to feel scattered, off balance and chaotic, but as long as you pay attention to what needs to be done and find your balance, you are going to sail through just fine.

If you find yourself feeling off-sorts with this New Moon energy, ask yourself how you can bring more grounding and balance into your life, and try to approach things one step at a time - it a great time to get serious with that calendar that's been laying around, or start a 3 min a daily meditation. Feeling scattered is a clear sign that balance is needed. 

Remember, all New Moons are about #goals and #upgrades - a time of manifesting and laying down new ideas for the future, and whatever you plant or conjure up during this New Moon is likely to be extremely abundant and prosperous come Full Moon time. October’s New Moon is extremely lucky and holds a lot of potential.

While Libra is all about the balancing act, it is also about being compassionate, putting yourself in other people’s shoes and finding compassion - so try not to be an asshole for the next 14 days. 

No matter what sign you are, this new moon will create a chance for you to clean up your shit and take care of the changes that the full moon called for. And, being in the sign of Libra, you'll make these changes with ease. You now have an opportunity to really create the balance and stability your life has been lacking. 

Love + Good Intentions, 
J + L
