New Moon in Libra – “Forgive to heal. See the truth and Be Free”
The New Moon falls on Thursday, 19th October 2017 at 26 degrees Libra. This new moon is a time of re-birth. A time of preparation for things to come. A time to let go of the old pain, the lies about ourselves and our situations and to move through the anxiety that has come with this turbulent year.
But there are big truths and lessons to be learned here – if we can allow it.
Pain is the touchstone of progress, and in order to see what we really want, we must first see what we don’t want. This can be tough, and much resistance comes up with this type of change. See the resistance for what it is – fear – and allow it to pass through you and visit rather than move in. This change is all around every single one of us. This is in our environments, our families, careers, the world as we know it and especially in our hearts.
These last few months have been an overwhelm of anxiety, trauma, and uncertainty. Not just in the world, but in our hearts. Among other things, its here to show us the truth about ourselves, our beliefs and our lack of connection. Considering everything that has been going on energetically and in the physical, it feels even harder to walk through fear at this time. To take the leap into faith with arms wide open. But this is exactly when you need to take that leap. In the midst of fear. To find a new and more powerful way to trust spirit.
These 3 cards are showing us that in order to be free, we must see the truth of ourselves and our world, to forgive in order to heal, and to take chances in spite of fear. To push through the anxiety of our minds to free ourselves even more. We are at a new level of evolution, and this doesn’t always feel easy, however, it is most definitely necessary.
“Mending” – Forgiveness; making amends; healing”
Each time we are hurt and allow the hurt to pass through us without understanding and integration, we accumulate an unwanted burden. This keeps us chained to the very things we need to heal: the pain, the memories, the echoes of resentment. Now is the time for mending, healing wounds and letting go of the old hurts in order to reclaim your power. Now is the time to forgive, to release, to make peace and to make amends to others to set yourself free.
Heartbreak of any kind is a strange healer of souls. Our grief strips away our masks and loosens our tight hold on our separateness, where we view ourselves as “I” and the world as “it”. Loss allows us to see ourselves as part of a larger scheme, opening us up to sympathy, empathy and it leads us to become one with the greater whole again.
“Truth Be Told” – Honesty; accepting things”
This is a time when you are called to proclaim your truth out loud, and be willing to be transparent, honest and open with others and with yourself. Nothing less than surrender to what is, peeling off the layers of denial that kept you tied to an illusion, will set you free. Be authentic and gloriously flawed.
Where are you being dishonest with others and/or yourself? If you are unhappy in an area of your life or world, look for the signs of denial. Ask for the truth from your higher self or people around you, even if you don’t like what you hear, acknowledging it will be key to a beautiful new future. Nothing less than the truth is required now.
“Come to the Edge – Courage; taking a leap of faith; overcoming fear”
Facing the unknown is the only choice you really have right now if you want progress. Its okay to be afraid. Most of what you fear is an illusion, stemming from an old belief that isn’t true. Now is the time for courage. Now is the time to take a risk that is not calculated-to feel exhilaration as you ready yourself for a leap of faith. Spirit is present, so let go of fear.
You are being called yet again to express your true self and do whatever is necessary to be free. Ask yourself these questions; would you rather be right, or be free? Would you rather hold onto resentments, things from that past that can never be changed or be free? Would you rather live in denial about yourself and others or be free?
Listen to your heart and soul, not your head and you will know the answer.. Trust that on the other side of the edge is freedom.
