New Moon in Libra - October 2023

Your guide to the moon cycle ahead.

New Moon in Libra

We are about to step back into eclipse season with the New Moon in Libra. An eclipse can add a sense of intensity and a need for transformation.

As we shift into this Libra energy, we are going to be concerned with balance, harmony and fairness in the world around us. What has been keeping you out of balance? This New Moon eclipse is going to ask you to let go in order to come back to harmony.

It's time to create something new that works for everyone and not just the few. It's also not a time to try and resist the growth and change that is coming your way, the more we try a hide from it the more difficult this can feel.

Going with the flow and letting go of how we think something should be happening or working out is the name of the game this month.

Yoga Pose Focus for this New Moon

Libra rules the kidneys and bladder as well as being the champion for balance so we want our physical practice to find strength in balance and maybe adding a twist.

One of my favourite poses for Libra Season is a simple standing twist which helps us to find balance while also stimulating the lower abdominal organs.

Rituals for the New Moon

For each New Moon I build an altar to honour the new beginning, a space where I can sit and be with my goals and dreams for the month ahead and get clarity on my intentions moving forward.

I also really love to use scent in all my rituals and this month I'll be using the sweet and fun Libra Wax Melts on my altar as I relax into my space.

Libra is all about balance and harmony so it might be worth checking your diary this month to see if you've taken on too much and haven't created space for rest.

Lastly, Libra is an Air sign and air needs to communicate, get together with friends and family for a good catch up.

Crystal for the New Moon in Libra

I've chosen Tigers Eye for this New Moon for it's connection to the lower chakras and balancing energy.

It's sometimes said to be a protection stone which promotes vitality and physical action. It stimulates the third charka, the solar plexus, and offers a sense of stability even if everything around us is not...

Journal Prompts for the Libra New Moon

Your journaling prompts for this New Moon are all around finding balance in yourself and with those around you.

1. Do I listen as much as I speak?

2. Do my current relationships give as much as they take, or the other way around?

3. Do I balance my actions with rest?

Oracle Card Message for this New Moon

Full Moon

New Moon in Libra Oracle Card

Card Description - The very word 'climax' brings all sorts of ideas and images to mind - agreed? But it really is the feeling of this card; life is coming to a head, a point, a conculsion or a turning point; there may be some kind of change, and possibly even some sort of emotional explosion. Tune into your emotions now and see what they're telling you. They're very likely close to the surface, no matter when in the Moon cycle you've pulled this card. Matters will soon conclude and you'll find out whether or not your wishes are going to come true. The odds are in your favour, as this is a positive card, but you may need to work harder than usual to keep cool as events unfold.

I hope that you have a wonderful and magical Libra New Moon!

Until the Full Moon
