Libra: Balancing Act
Libra is the sign of the scales and symbolizes our human desire for balance and just outcomes. Libra is sensitive to others, charming and social by nature. Libra is ruled by Venus goddess of relating and can assist us in developing good social graces.
Use the power of this New Moon to call in what you need to restore balance and beauty to your life. It could be that your home is crying out for a do-over, Libra can help with that. Or maybe it’s your love-life that needs revamping. Libra’s here to lend a hand. If you want to see yourself in a more flattering light, the Libra Moon can put things in perspective.
Libra wants to create peace where there is discord and bring more beauty and grace into our world. Libra’s world is not free of tension but teaches how to navigate conflict n order to cultivate win-win situations in which everyone flourishes. Rather than repressing the imbalance, look within for hidden motivations, conditions, or judgments whenever strife arises. When we are avoiding our inner work, sometimes the Powers That Be will swoop in to get our attention through the actions of (annoying) people in our lives. If there are people or situations that are really getting to you, check yourself first.
Working with Venus, the goddess of love, we can create a sense of luxury, beautify our homes and smo0oth out difficult relationships. What is beautiful to you? Are there tendencies or roles you play in relationships that you would like to release? Do you struggle with co-dependency or a fear of commitment? Are you satisfied with the quality of your social life?
