The 2012 New Moon is on Monday the 15th (8:02 am est). The weekend atmosphere is one of whirling Fall leaves, and the restful -- and sometimes melancholy -- quiet of winding down with the Sun. It's a time to reflect on balance, and giving over to the organic inner harmonizing gifts of the air sign Libra.
When the Moon is new in Libra the Sun is also in Libra. It's a time of greater clarity, since Libra is both the balancing Scales and the sword of Illumination.
What's tipping your scale out of balance? What do you want to draw in? Now is a time for big picture thinking. Keep a journal close, or your art, music or performance tools handy. Libra is ruled by the love and beauty planet Venus, and while it's a sign known for eloquence, your expression may not be in words.
Thank goodness for the renewing New Moon! Make space to go within, retreat, deeply listen. Out of the New Moon, comes new growth. What you set in motion psychically and with actions finds natural momentum as the Moon waxes to Full.
