October New Moon in Libra: Purge and Detox

October New Moon in Libra: Purge and Detox

The new moon’s in lovely Libra (October 8, 10:46pm CST), which means a purging of stagnant dynamics occurs. Toxicity that’s been lurking under the surface gets a chance for release over the next month or so.

Venus’s retrograde in Scorpio, the sign of her fall, sparks a rebellion of the dark feminine. She’s busting out of constraints that have been imposed on her for too long. Socialized to be sweet, pretty, demure, and acquiescent, now her wily twin comes out of the woodwork! Defending the boundaries of women’s rights is a reaction to recent attempted transgressions against them, and this theme is part of the new moon. Betty Crocker is tearing off her apron, because she’s not baking cookies anymore!

Discomfort’s concocted in relationships, exposing sore spots that can’t be healed if we’re not aware of them. Once the hurts are revealed, we know which salve to put on them…

It’s a time to revisit past contacts we fell out with. Is a reunion of sorts in the making? The turning of the tides in the social realms is just what the doctor ordered, because it’s now fruitful for connection with others. Whom or what have we been carrying a torch for that we weren’t aware of before? Time to reignite that flame!

To help get your mojo working this new moon, consider Coventry Creation’s Truth and Justice candle. The Eye of Horus’ New Moon Oil is also an excellent aid to anyone starting a new path or undertaking new ventures. The Rosarium’s Sekhmet incense blend, which calls upon the energies of the fierce Egyptian war goddess, can also help fuel your fire during this time.

September Full Moon in Aries: Fire’s Edge

September Full Moon in Aries: Fire’s Edge

Full moon in feisty Aries (September 24, 2018, 9:52pm CST) faces off with sun in Libra. Restless edginess punctures the atmosphere. The instinct to sprint ahead impulsively at one’s own whim is tempered by considering others and reigned in as we are asked to acknowledge our limitations. Conflicting motivations push us into action!

Sun and Mercury in Libra is social and ready to relate, ignited by the spark of moon in Aries. A “you versus me” stand off is possible, and taking personal responsibility helps to navigate conflict.

Venus plays rough in her shadow territory, deriving pleasure from the fight. The wheels are greased and primed to go backward for her. The stage is being set for bad girl ethics to take place, but the curtain has not yet been drawn for the debut. A switch in the social atmosphere is coming soon…

Being active and on the move facilitates that pioneering new project that is ripe to take off running now!

Help keep your heart on strong and sure footing during this time with Coventry Creations’ Emotional Balance candle. Bring in gentle, healing energies with Shoyeido’s exquisite Love blend from their Angelic line incenses. If you find yourself unsure of how to proceed, give yourself a reading with the colorful and uplifting Moonbeam Magick oracle deck.
