New Moon October 2012

New Moon Libra 2012

Monday, October 15, 7:02 a.m. CDT

You’ve heard the saying, “When God hands you lemons, make lemonade.” That’s the ingenuity of Virgo. To quickly analyze and make something creative from what you have on hand, that’s Virgo.

Why We Hide

October New Moon 2012

Because We’ve Known Pain


How do we trust again, and again after the pain? We can start by trusting our self.  Self love is THE success factor in relationships.

The absolute most important... actual reason for human existence is to develop a relationship with SELF. With humans? Yes, humans are our practice field, but when we make another human our God we will always be disappointed. And where does that leave us...  thrown back in on ourselves over and over again. With newer and newer awareness of ‘the expanded’ SELF we move out into the world again.  

The process involves becoming comfortable with Self. We come to know that Self can not be destroyed and only the ego can hurt. So we’re less on guard. We’ve won our own TRUST. We’re not looking for someone to feed us, we’re fed.

SELF love and awareness increases our ability to truly LISTEN to others. With the ability to relax and truly listen comes the ability to discern. We’re now able to discern whether a particular relationship or situation enhances the SELF or distracts from Self.  We discern when it’s appropriate to say, “whoa”... to those we meet who desire to act out their own pain, at our expense.  When these situations arise we can forgive, we can be compassionate, but we can also draw a line. We honor our Selves in this way. We enrich our lives in this way.  The goal is Self love. And if it feels selfish, well we’ve all been conditioned not to be, and learning how is part of empowered Libra. Try substituting the word SELF-esh instead of selfish. Libra asks for the balance between honoring Self and remaining open to the Self in others.  This is the balance of Libra, the scales of justice.

Mastery of Self allows us the freedom to remove the mask worn from years and lifetimes of pain.  Sure one may see pain in those eyes.......but also strength and wisdom.

October New Moon 2012Pain, not confronted, creates an imbalance in relationship with our DIVINE SELF, and it’s hard if not impossible to access all that we are until this pain is confronted, and each of us masters this in our own way.   

How do we move from pain to wholeness?  Self love creates an interesting dynamic. You project SELF love and you receive love. It’s the law of attraction. Our needs become easy to express because we’re honoring our Self. We can fall into the trap of thinking it necessary to deny our needs in order to attract love. When we deny our SELF we tend to attract others who sense our pain and that can go a number of ways and it’s usually not healthy in the long run.

For the past 2 ½ years Saturn has been in Libra = developing balance in relationships. Saturn ‘restructures’ what ever sign it’s in. That’s Saturn’s job.  So we’ve all had the opportunity of ‘restructuring’ Libra/relationships in our personal lives, and in the political arena, and in the world arena.

On Oct. 5, Saturn moved into the next sign of the zodiac, Scorpio, and will be in Scorpio for the next 2 ½ years. Why am I mentioning Scorpio when the New Moon is in Libra? Because we were in high school with Saturn in Libra and relationships, and now we are moving toward the advanced degree. So during this New Moon in Libra if there is anything you need to clean up, redo, revisit, or decree to your Self... this is a good time. The focus on relationships is going to be with us for a while, and it’s going deeper. We’ll speak more of Scorpio and relationships next month.

During this New Moon time we have an opportunity to plant a new seed thought with regard to relationships. That’s all we really need to do is plant the seed. That’s what New Moons are about..... Just plant it, cultivate it, and believe in the laws of the universe.  We can honor the SELF in others and we likewise can honor the SELF within our own being. This is the highest expression of Libra.

Here are some areas to consider when affirming using the Libra archetype. Trusting Others, Negotiation Skills, Harmony, Teamwork, Sociability/Diplomacy, Refinement, and Healing Codependency

I’ve had a few requests for more words please. The ‘Zen’ was working for some and others – not so much. So, hoping I didn’t wear you out. Till next time.....
