New Moon in Libra
"Don't let the expectations and ideas of others limit who you are. If you let others tell you who you are, you are living their reality — not yours. There is more to life than pleasing people. There is much more to life than following others' prescribed path. There is so much more to life than what you experience right now. You need to decide who you are for yourself. Become a whole being. Adventure.”
Roy T. Bennett

It is more than likely that Mercury Retrograde in Libra (read more on that HERE) threw some major curve balls in your path in these last couple weeks, and during this particular transit, they feel particularly aimed at the authenticity of our relationships, our boundaries and the places where our inner truth meets our actions on the outside. Today's new moon is a call for harmony & balance, which sometimes must happen through rather violent events like floods, wild fires, lightning strikes. If that's the case, lean into what you know deep down to be true, find your unshakable core which wants to be expressed through love & kindness.

I myself made a super terrifying decision to leave FaceBook owned social media. This has been long time coming, but the latest revelations from Frances Haugen - in a true Libra Season 'speak & live your authentic truth, even if the whole world stands against you' fashion - provided the last necessary push for me to align my actions with my inner truth. Don't get me wrong...Even though I haven't been on social media until I was about twenty, I already can't remember and imagine life without them. Like any step from the Known to Unknowable, like any attempt to break away from an addiction, it feels super vulnerable and scary. Even at this very moment, as I confidently share my decision with you, I  keep battling with anxiety and fears that quitting Facebook, WhatsApp and Instagram will result in feeling disconnected, lonely, out of touch, irrelevant, boring and like my life, experiences, adventures, connections and history won't count anymore, unless they're turned into posts with likes and comments.

Sometimes Libra’s talent for interpersonal connections tips the balance towards dependency and the old ‘waiting to meet someone to complete me’ takes over. So tonight, whether you’re on a hunt or happily coiled in someone’s loving embrace – make sure you keep talking (Libras are the peace-keepers of the Zodiac) and listening – in a loving way charting and honoring each others individuality and boundaries.

Spells and magickal workings involving the inner and outer beauty, calling in balance and fairness, or starting an exciting new project will be especially potent around Libra’s New Moon.

Some great ways to harness this season’s energy: meditate or journal on ‘The Justice’ tarot card, indulge in some decadent pampering rituals or schedule in 2-3 days of no alcohol/coffee/sugar/junk food/social media/toxic people. Write little thank you/love you notes to your friends, appreciate their light. Grab Blue Topaz to enhance creative inspiration and mental clarity, Amazonite for personal growth, objectivity, truth & fairness.

Every morning throughout the Libra Season – try and find some time for mirror work with following mantra:

“My mind, body and soul are in perfect balance. I am a harmonious being.”
