"No person, no place, and no thing has any power over us,
for 'we' are the only thinkers in our mind.
When we create peace and harmony and balance in our minds,
we will find it in our lives."
- Louise L. Hay
The New Moon takes place in the Sign of Libra on 20 October 2017 at 6.12am (AEST) at 26 degrees. Given Libra''s energy is all about finding the balance in relationships, negotiation, harmony, teamwork, sociability and refinement .... this New Moon is an opportunity to bring balance to important personal and professional relationships in our lives - including the relationship with Ourselves!
What is the New Moon?
Every 29 1/2 days, the Moon travels through an 8 phase lunar cycle. The New Moon phase is the first of the cycle and occurs when the Moon is at the exact same degree in the Sky as the Sun.
From Earth she therefore appears as a Black Moon.
The New Moon represents the end of one cycle and the beginning of another and is a POTENT time for starting things anew to manifest the dreams of our Heart.
It might feel like a quiet time, when life is veiled in darkness and things are brewing... but for thousands of years it's been considered a powerful time for planting seeds, making a fresh start, turning over a new leaf or beginning any new project.
An opportunity to RE-BALANCE Business Relationships and Focus on TEAMWORK
With the New Moon in Libra, the focus is on what's working and what's not in all relationships. It brings an opportunity to work more harmoniously with clients and colleagues and recognise the value of being in partnership with others.
If you have been having to deal with unresolvable conflict at the office or at home, this is a great time to stop, reflect and put yourself in the other person's shoes for a moment. What might it be like to be them? What can you do to support them and get closer to having both of your Needs/Goals met? What would an ideal outcome be for both sides?
Of equal importance is reviewing which relationships put you off balance. Which relationships bring a toxic energy to your work and personal life.
What intentions could you set to manifest really productive and nurturing relationships with colleagues and clients at work?

An opportunity to RE-BALANCE your relationship with YOURSELF
As much as Libra is about creating equality and balance in relationships with others, it's also about finding balance within ourselves and connecting to our heart's desires.
This New Moon brings an opportunity to look in the Mirror and ask yourself some key questions (you can do this as part of my New Moon Ritual too with full intention and impact)
1. Which professional relationships do I need to work on to bring a more balanced / win-win connection. What steps can I take in each case to deepen the quality of our working relationship and therefore our combined output?
2. Which professional relationships do I need to let go off as they are holding my career/business back? Which personal relationships do I want to work on to bring a more harmonious energy between us. How will doing that positively impact my performance at work
3. What aspect of my relationship with my self is out of balance? e.g. health, self-love, service, career, hobbies. How can I bring more balance back to looking after myself as much as other aspects of my life?
Notice the Resistance and PUSH through!
But as much as Libra loves peace and harmony, this New Moon does have a layer of adversarial energy to it. The Planet Uranus is opposing the Moon and brings a rogue "do it my way" layer onto things. Therefore, there may be some resistance in you to find a way to resolve conflict with others and within yourself.
But as always Awareness is everything.
If you notice resistance to set intentions or make changes, honour it but stay focussed on pushing through it. This intentional energy to shift relationships only comes but once a year!
So If you hear your mind telling you to "Stuff Them" when it comes to resolving relationship challenges, focus on the power of the peace-making Libra Moon to conquer and create a great outcome for all. It may not be easy, but it will be worth it when your intentions for more productive working relationships come true over the following months!! Of course, the relationship is not salvageable or productive, now's the time to think about moving away from it.
