The New Moon is on Sunday, September 25 at 4:54 p.m. in 2° Libra. Libra is a sign of partnerships, so starting a new project in partnership is favored. Libra, symbolized by the scales, is about balance.
"It's not how you predict the future; it's how you balance the future." Goswami Kriyananda
How do we balance our future using the information in the New Moon chart? The first thing is the understanding that balance comes from re-balancing. Re-balancing is a process of realizing we're off-balance and pulling back toward whatever balance means to you. In yoga, we're usually talking about peace and equanimity. So, when we find ourselves off-balance emotionally in some way, we use a technique like deep breathing or meditation to bring us back.
If Libra is a sign of partnerships, we balance the next several days by paying attention to the partnerships in our life: marriage, work projects etc. Since Libra is an air sign and air signs mean communication, then we pay attention to all communications and use the Libra faculty for tact and diplomacy. Balance, un-balance, re-balance.
And then as Mercury makes its stationary point on October 2 at 24° Virgo, we double up on tact and diplomacy, letting go of giving critiques to others for a few days.
Because the Saturn/Uranus square is still in orb in the New Moon chart, we contemplate ways to harmoniously balance caution with creativity. The old versus the new. Tradition in contrast to modern culture.
With Mars trining Saturn in the New Moon chart we can use consistent and focused energy to get our New Moon projects geared up.
You can turn all the above into affirmations if you like:
I move through the day with an abundance of balanced and constructive energy.
The Most Important Thing
Ray Grasse often posts excerpts from his books on Facebook. Recently he posted this conversation with Goswami Kriyananda via Ray's book Urban Mystic …
RAY: What is the most important thing a person should know?
KRIYANANDA: That they can find answers for themselves, that they don’t need teachers, gurus, priests, rabbis. As my guru said to me, “No one should have greater interest in me than me,” No one would have greater interest in you than you. And so that you— whoever that you is—should pick up the search. So I think the answer is, we can find the answers. Life is knowable.
