New Moon in Libra | September 30th, 2016
This new moon is all about stepping outside of the old rules for your life and really leaping into the new way you are actively creating your dreams.
You have been on a very long journey. Finally things are just beginning to take shape.
This journey may have included being in a period of sharing your ideas, creative project, or your next steps in life with someone you very much respect in your life; an elder, mentor, teacher, or parent. There may have even been a silent longing to get your ideas validated by others before you took that next step.
Well, this new moon is introducing a strong green light to keep going with any of your new ideas!
With this validation, you may have noticed you begin to move into hyper speed - nonstop. There is a sense of pride in your new ideas and consistent movement forward. Perhaps, in your rapid growth, you may even start to notice where you have outgrow some people around you.
They too are noticing this shift in your life. You are truly unique and others are noticing how different you are from most anyone they know. You are truly on your own path and are embarking on brand new territory!
Yet, even if anyone is moving at a slower pace, you are becoming a beacon of inspiration for others while they consider their own life, missed opportunities, and old dreams they may want to bring back again.
This new moon is also bringing up a bit of fear, or self consciousness, that hits just as you are about to really take your first big step into creating your new idea, project, or life experience.
You may be noticing that you begin to second guess yourself and your new ideas. Keep in mind, your ideas are so revolutionary, fresh, innovative, even perhaps a bit on the dreamer side of things, that there may not be anything that exists like what you are actively dream up for this life.
As you begin to navigate your way through these emotions, the new moon in Libra is attempting to positively highlight the beauty of how different you are in this life. Yet, feeling a bit more raw, you might be wondering "Why do I have to be so different?"
The new moon is showing you that being different is huge part of who you are and the "brand new" things you are bringing into the world matter. Keep the past lunar eclipses in mind while you find your way through this energy. The recent eclipses really showed us our purpose and meaning; what you bring to the world matters.
The new moon is stimulating that there is no longer a need to ask for permission to begin a new project. We can really do things our own way. This new moon is bringing an awareness that as innovators we do not need to ask a select group of people to support our creative ideas. This is a great time to allow the old rules to fall away so that you can create anew.
For example, money can come from a variety of sources. You can explore brand new avenues for sharing your story. You can cross-collaborate with a multitude of different people at the same time. You get to create the new way of doing things in your life!
This new moon is moving us into a transformative period where, as a community, this is a time of releasing the old idea and stepping into the new ideas of what makes someone feel safe and provided for in this world. Being a good, hard worker, may not be benefiting us as it use to in the past. As a community, the new moon is showing us that we can shift into becoming more flexibility, adaptable, creative and versatile when it comes to nurturing a sense of safety in our lives.
This is a time of innovation and creativity all around. This new level of safety can allow us to create the very best things from what we already have in our life - and even exceed our expectations.
During this new moon, giving yourself permission to indulge in your senses, and try something completely new, can gracefully push you through this period of growth.
Perhaps, eating foods that are so beautifully vibrant in color you end up cooking it for dinner. Or perhaps following the scent of something that smells really good and discovering something new in your neighborhood. This is a great time to go to that new pottery class that you've always were curious to take - or any other class. This is such a great time to expand outside of your comfort zone with a wealth of curiosity.
In allowing yourself to indulge and trying new things, you give yourself space for more creativity and new ways of thinking. This is a great way to shake up the old so you can create the new!
The new moon is ushering in a wave of opportunity so new it may not even exist yet! The new moon is showing us, if we are ready, we can surrender the old to create the new.
Happy New Moon!
