I am feeling the movement of the seasons as Autumn is full upon us here in Boulder. The coleus and impatiens who have adorned my garden with extravagant colors all summer have said their fond farewells with last week's frost. Bright blue lobelias and petunias are
still going strong as are a few stalwart marigolds. The leaves on the trees are doing their Fall dance, shifting from greens to shades of colors that only a Creator with the finest sense of BEAUTY could imagine. In the high country the aspens have already closed their show for the year as all of Nature in the Northern climes feels the turn inwards. Bears and racoons have been raiding the local trash bins and the squirrels are frantically running to and fro with apples, nuts, and I think I saw one wrestling a piece of pizza. Nature BALANCES herself, bustling about after the big show of Spring and Summer, preparing for the rest and revitalization time of Winter, reminding you to do the same.
So too do we feel the turn inwards as the cycle of the year directs us to flow with it. The NEW MOON in LIBRAon October 15th fuels the Venusian agenda and nothing we like
better here on this gorgeous planet than a Venusian agenda. Venus rules the sign of Libra (it rules Taurus as well - at least for now). Libra concerns itself with harmony, balance, peace, relationships, equality, and justice.
No better time than RIGHT NOW to review your Self-care routine. Are you making yourself your priority in the frenzy of all that you feel you HAVE to do to keep your life going? Re-prioritizing to create BALANCE in your life is the message of
Venus-ruled Libra. Are you making time for pleasure as much as you make time for the bill-paying? Are you caring for your body, leaving plenty of time to nurture your skin, your muscles? Are you preparing foods that nurture and support the healthy functioning of all your parts? Are you keeping the flora and fauna balanced in your gut so your body is functioning with ease and grace?
Libra NEW MOON is the perfect time to review your self-care habits and upgrade to what creates the most harmony and balance for you. Watch for what triggers you as those are the areas that are out of balance. Nurture and support the DIVINE FEMININE in you as the DIVINE FEMININE is needed in full functioning mode to balance the Martian male energy which has come to dominate our world. It all begins with YOU. Do one thing EVERY DAY that supports beauty, ease, and grace in the world. When I walk my dogs I take an extra bag with me that's just for trash so I can tidy up my little corner of the world. Anything you do that tips the scales of balance to BEAUTY and HARMONY, infusing every action and thought with LOVE activates the LIBRA energy.
Tangerine Quartz is a beautiful crystal for the NEW MOON in LIBRA.
Place it on your belly to create harmony and balance in your digestive system. If your
digestive system is fully functioning - with ease and grace - everything else seems to flow way better. Use crystals to activate and support all your systems. Program your crystals to create harmony and balance in all your systems.
If you have the Sun, Moon, rising sign or other planets in Libra you will be affected by the Pluto-Uranus square. Expect large-scale revamping in any and all areas that square hits. Let's take a look at your chart and see how best to use the powerful transformational energies working on you in the rest of 2012.
