Imagine the Ancient Ones under the new moon sky, no light but starlight to illuminate their rituals. Imagine how bright and how vast their view of the cosmos was. Today we have science and light pollution and even though the new moon refuses to show itself, we know it’s still there. I love the new moon for this very reason. It represents the moment before anything manifests itself; it reminds us that only in darkness and silence and stillness can anything truly be born.
Our ancestors, under that new moon sky imagined their futures written in the heavens. They dreamed themselves forwards, for the good of their own hearts and their communities. Today’s Libra New Moon wants to remind you of your relationships with your ancestors, the luminous ones. This moon wants you to sit in the dark and feel deeply into the partnerships you need to forge or repair in order to take the next step on your journey. We must build a bridge between our past and our future and this can only happen if we allow for space and time to see those patterns that will either run us into the ground or weave us all together in harmony.
Let’s be real, the new moon is always the invisible presence that asks the hardest questions. Who are you really? What are you here to do? Where are you heading? How can you heal a piece of all that is? I want to encourage you to actually take some time and face these questions head on. Even if you struggle and strain beneath them and even if you don’t come up with a complete answer, at least you’re starting to sketch the dream forwards.
You don’t have to do any of this alone. Just as we cannot see the new moon, we still have access to her energy. Your resolved ancestors and spirit guides are hidden to your eyes but that doesn’t mean they have abandoned you. The angels are trying to send you messages all the time. Libra is the sign of relationships and this new moon is a reminder that your connections need to be tended regularly, with spirit, with this planet, with your friends, with your ancestors, with your living family and MOST IMPORTANTLY with yourself.
If you do only one thing to honor the new moon today, carve out a few moments to sit quietly, turn off the lights. Find your core, your deepest heart and from that place call out into the invisible world and invite your ancestral helping spirits to support you in your daily life, reconnect with the guides who have been silently shepherding you through life. Do one thing, large or small, to breathe new life into your exchange with this planet we call home. Libra new moon wants to remind us that our lives are built from relationships, they are the very foundation of what it means to be human. So clean out the alignments that are no longer sacred and serving you, clean up the bonds that you have taken for granted or ignored, and remember that just by acknowledging the dark new moon you are deepening your own relationship with her, with the great mystery and with your own unique magic.
