he Sun and the Moon merge in Libra. This is also the New Moon of the Sacred Union between any inharmonious energy dynamics that require our attention. We all are faced with moments in which we need to assess opposing forces in our lives and to weigh them upon the scales of Balance and Justice. Try to remove the blindfold of Injustice and see that everything is beautiful in its own way and that includes each and everyone of us.

This time the Sun and Moon are joined with Mercury (Communication/Thinking), Libra ruled Venus  (Love, Harmony, Justice) and Saturn (Limitation/Law/Dharma) in a Celestial Affair. The theme seems to be weighing the pros and cons in the search for liberty, justice, peace and harmony. In certain parts of the world the scales remain unfairly imbalanced. Social injustice is being addressed on many issues…including Libra’s realm of partnerships, equality and attraction.  Most people are familiar with the Law of Attraction but seem to negate the Law of Repulsion. When we accept that certain energy (even the energy within each of us) is sometimes repelling in order to achieve harmony and to get out of its way. Positive and Negative are both equal and neccessary charges and without them we simply can not recharge our batteries. We need to empty so that we may fill. Good/Evil, Happy/Sad, Light/Dark, Yin/Yan, Head/Heart are on the axis of opposites. Energy is ebb and flow. If the scales were completely still, they would in essence become stagnant, boring and without motion.

As the cool weather draws near and the nights grow longer, many people want to nest with a companion. Venus is blowing kisses into bubbles of thought and feeling about merging with an other. All in not fair in love and war…or so it goes. It is the perfect New Moon to deal with relationship issues on all levels, including the relationship that we experience with ourselves. Be willing to risk honesty when weighing our own heart with the feather of our own truth. Be fair when someone professes a truth that you are not in agreement with.  Each may be a truth according to their own experience and viewpoint.

If we need to refine any agreements in our intimate relations, then now is the moment to initiate them. A ritual of love and beauty can be performed in any romantic setting: A fire with lots of candles or any ambient lighting with sensual adornments like a red rose of love. Of course, who doesn’t enjoy a luxurious bubble bath infused with the most delicious aromas. Remember to look beyond the Vanity Mirror of superficial beauty and look at the many mirrors of our loved ones who also reflect our inner beauty. We all desire to be valued and loved. Are there any friends or family that you need to express your love and appreciation to?  Perhaps there has been an injustice that needs to be addressed. Can we meet upon the commonground of acceptance and not take rejection to heart?

Indeed this Lunar cycle begins with decision making. If we are the Universe’s way of knowing itself, then Peace and Harmony truly begins with each and everyone one of us.
