New Moon in Libra – An Invitation to Start Over

Human beings once looked at time in a more natural way. We looked to the moon and stars in the sky to reflect the cycles of life in our environment and to help us determine our place in the seasons of our life. The moon was and still is our great illuminator, the soft focus that could show us the way in the dark. We planted and harvested crops according to lunar cycles and this is still symbolic of how we can plant our sweetest intentions in our Field of Dreams when the moon is dark and open to receive, and pull out the weeds with wild abandon when the moon shines full and can show us what we need to release for our highest good.

This week we’re visited by the New Moon in the sign of Libra and there is a distinct cosmic nudge and invitation by this relationship focused moon to plant the seeds of harmony, gratitude, and goodwill even towards those you may have resented. That’s right the New Moon in Libra really is an invitation to start over, to open your heart even if it’s been bruised and celebrate that Love is the answer right now.

It’s so interesting when I look back I always felt that October was the cozy month to fall in love!  Ok, I will admit I kissed a lot of frogs before my husband. Maybe I thought October meant they would turn into a magical prince. HA!  It never dawned on me it was because the astro-influence was Libra – the sign ruled by Venus and centered around partnerships. But I slightly digress!

In setting intentions it’s also important to note that this new moon offers all of us a new beginning to bring a more graceful approach to relationships with others. This means all others, not just romantic partnerships. If we have been addicted to approval from others, fearful of confrontation, or seeking harmony to dispel anxiety and fear rather than find a true solution, we have already seen how this disempowers everyone in the dynamic.

Wow, do I ever identify with that one. I have worked hard to say I am a recovered people pleaser! You? Actually, I notice this a lot with healer types and women who have suffered trauma and lost their ability to manage boundaries. I certainly have seen myself fall on my face to help someone at my expense. It’s so important to become aware of and manage motives too.

Right now we are working on building our Oracle Circle membership site and I am going to be doing a reading on a New and Full moon every month and showing members how the lunar cycles are built into our natural intuitive systems. It’s amazing when you see how we’re affected by the moon and its astrological influence no matter what sign we are. It’s all about emotional progress, healing and maturity and the New moon ushers in a whole month where the overarching themes are about healing relationships and building healthier ones. That can be difficult when your nervous system is so overloaded with information you’re in a constant stress state. But we must engage in this positive change regardless. Even if we stumble in the dark, and Love scatters Love seeds everywhere as we trip it’s still good. It’s also an invitation to go within and intend to have a healed and loving experience with yourself which requires one to use the shitty feelings and resentments as rich fertilizer for that Field of Dreams. Nothing needs to go waste once awareness is alive. All resentments are the manure we can use!

Now is the time to bring something positive and loving to the world.

So In a nutshell, this New Moon invites us first to intend the grace of self-healing, self-awareness of the ways in which we’ve survived by trying to manipulate the world to stay safe. Then we can set an intention to be that person who can be in a relationship without fear, and without sacrificing oneself for peace. That can be achieved where there is a win-win for all. I am game, are you?

What I find most helpful is doing a New Moon reading to help me understand what I need to do, change, and commit to setting my intentions in motion.

Since this New Moon is in Libra, here is a specific New Moon spread for the theme of relationships.

Card 1- What do I need to do in order to achieve true harmony in my relationships?

Card 2- What do I need to change in myself in order to maintain a healthy sense of self when engaging with others?

Card 3- What am I in denial about when considering my relationships with others?

Card 4- What can I do to course correct for the highest good of all.

Card 5- In order to see my intention for an empowered way to be with others come to life what do I need to focus on for the highest good?

I suggest you use my Wisdom of the Oracle Cards and check both the essential meaning and Relationship section of the guidebook. My latest deck, Spirit Animal, is also a good Oracle to work with on a New Moon, although you can do this with any of your favorite decks.

Just want to say how grateful I am for you. I know you could be reading a ton of other people’s blogs and it means a lot that you’re here! Tell me what are you grateful for this month as we step into a time of starting over? What would your intentions be?

I’m so excited to start Oracle School in this beautiful cycle too- we have new students from 35 countries! I am so so grateful.

Happy New Moon everyone!

Anything is possible when you open your connection to the Universe

    I am blown away about your blog re new moon in Libra. Today it is actually happening for me! I noticed a beautiful healing change today, between my husband and I compared to the past 3 weeks were, let’s put it this way, harmony and pleasantness were not so much in the picture. This confirms to me how much part we are with the universe. 🙂
    Thank you Colette X

    I am so grateful for everything in my life right now. I have just returned from Egypt. It was a dream come true vacations! Plus, I have a sister who wasn’t talking to me due to a difderence in opinions – a total waste of energy – and yesterday she talked to me during a family reunion.
    I do hope this new moon lighten everybody’s hearts nas souls.

    I am simply grateful. I could not “be” without all of my faculties which enable my abilities. I am also so so grateful for this tribe. I have been somewhat of a loner since my retirement of 30+ years in the Army, and you have offered and afforded me the opportunity to be part of a tribe who represents ideals much bigger than who I am. Grazie mille mia goddess sorella e amica bella!!
    Blessings in the Light in Peace, Love, and Joy!

    My 5 card spread and intention focuses on self care this month. Cards – All that Glitters REVERSED, Poised, Happy Happy REVERSED, Truth be Told & Higher Power REVERSED. Logically, I see the cards but having a hard time delving into depth of the meanings. How telling is that LOL? Need to step away from the drama lamas, have fun, listen to ME, trust in God.

    I am grateful for the Love that has helped me grow. Being loved allowed me to see myself as lovable, it took 50 years for me to believe I deserved to be loved. The first 50 my biological relationships told me I wasn’t deserving of love, they lied.
    I can honestly say that coming from love and understanding where your desires and true wants come from is freeing. I am no longer ashamed of my desires, wants, likes, opinions or outlook. I love who I am for the first time in my life and want to share and play with others of like mind, LOL. I am not afraid of giving now because I know what I have to give is of value to others and myself.
    What seems so simple to do was the most difficult task for me to accomplish accept me for me. So my friend, Thank you for sharing your gifts. It is my hope to share mine as well, I feel a calling to help heal, I must admit it is overwhelmingly strong, Hear ya on the up-side

    I’m grateful that I was led to your unique guidance and appreciative of how much I’m learning from you and your beautiful Oracle cards and weekly readings. Thank you for being so open in sharing your life experiences. One thing I’m learning (as a massage therapist and energy worker) is that I never know how much difference a word of support can make or even just holding space for that person. I had no idea of the effect I was having until some of the people actually told me later. So, instead of assuming you know how important your work is to me, I wanted to take this new moon opportunity to say it. You are an inspiration and uplifter – thank you.

    This week is really good for things that are going on. It is also my birthday this week on 10/10 so there is energy in that too. My cards were HAPPY HAPPY in protection mode, COME TO THE EDGE in protection mode, and FORK IN THE ROAD. This makes sense will all the unrest and uncertainty here in the United States.
    I love this deck of card and have it on my Wish List in Hay House. Maybe it will be a Birthday gift to myself….we will see. Thanks again Colette for another wonderful post.

    Love this!! I find so much meaning in your words, cards, and weekly videos. Thank you so much for sharing with us! I have three of your decks and also just got the lovely Moonology Oracle deck by Yasmin Boland that ties so nicely to this post, so I’m excited to use it alongside my trusty CBR decks! I had a thought the other week about the process of letting go of what no longer serves our highest good and, as a gardener, I thought about how we can internally “compost” that stuff to improve/ strengthen our own inner soil, just like a garden- so it was so neat to see you write about that in this post! Thanks again for all you do!

    Hi Colette!
    HAPPY THANKSGIVING! Thank you for your generous information re the New Moon! This so resonants for me as it is a time for me to heal some relationships and start to redefine and set boundaries for myself. Boundries are new for me as I have always been the “Flower Child” from the 70’s and open to everything and everyone. There was definitely some benefits to that way of being, and also some costs which have gotten higher as time goes on. It is time for me to be “not so available” and to have boundaries and standards that I hold myself to while still loving the relationships I have. This is a breakthrough for me in how I live my life going forward. Thank you again and looking forward to your next Transformational message! Susanne xo

    Hi Colette.

    My three cards today were: To the Sea in protection; Between Worlds in protection; A Leg Up in upright position. Yes I really need to surrender and go with the flow and stop trying to control every part of my life. I also need to allow others to gift me assistance rather than rob them of the gift of giving.

    You know, this is a common theme with me. It’s time I take the lessons and move on. Thank you so much for all that you do and all of your precious time that you spend with us.

    Much love and sparkly rainbow blessings,
    Gayle xx

    Colette, I love your suggestions for specific questions to ask when doing a reading for myself on this day of the New Moon. I utilized your list of questions for last month’s Full Moon, and found them ever so helpful. Yes, we do have to look inside ourselves for answers, and we really need to bring our inner lives outward, into the world around us. Thank you for your work!

    My three extra cards that go with today’s reading were: To the Sea in protection; Between Worlds in protection; A Leg Up in upright position. I really need to surrender and let go of control and go with the flow of my life.

    You know this is a recurring pattern for me. It’s time I learn the lessons and move on in my life. I’m ready to hear this and take action.

    Thank you so much for what you do and your precious energy that you expend on our behalf.

What I’m most thankful for this month is being able to learn about the cards so thank you. Got my first deck of cards a few weeks ago woto watched your videos and it has helped me to let go of somethings in my life I was about to go down the same path I have been going down for years but I made a u turn and took the other road. I pick a card every morning before work and I seem so much happier and at ease. I do have two more decks of your cards now postcards from spirit and the spirit animal . I what to keep learning and improving myself.

    This is my first time. I really love this message and I’m game too! I have the mystical shaman oracle deck and I got, The Sorcerer – Reverse; The Owl – Reverse; Flow – Reverse; The Moon – Reverse; The Arrow Reverse. All Reversed. I guess I have a lot of work ahead of me? Not sure how to interpret.

    Wow, Colette!
    This line of your blog was so very spot on for me:
    “”go within and intend to have a healed and loving experience with yourself which requires one to use the shitty feelings and resentments as rich fertilizer for that Field of Dreams.””
    I have been sick for the past 3 days with a nasty cold…the worst I have had in more than 20 years. I also incurred several small financial losses in the past week, as well as having had my laptop battery stolen. Prior to that I had been operating on exhaustion mode for at least a month. Being in a highly weakened condition broke me down as I have not been before in many years. The Great Spirit made me stay down for the past 3 days, the Great Spirit told me, you will stop doing, you will rest, restore, and recover. I have mostly been in bed. I did a lot of qi deep breathing techniques, meditating on healing light and going within myself to tap into the healer within me. I am feeling better, not normal, but definitely better.
    So now I will use all those shitty feelings and resentments as rich fertilizer for the dreams and the better-ment that is coming into my life right now.
    Thank you so much Colette. You are an angel that I follow like the light of a tunnel.

    My New Moon reading was from Colette’s Wisdom of the Hidden Realms. Before selecting each card I shuffled and laid my hand on the deck, focusing only on that question.
    Card 1 is #26, The Rainbow Prince (challenger)
    Card 2 is #1, The High Lady of Love and Compassion (challenger)
    Card 3 is #2, The High Lord of Gratitude and Service (Ally)
    Card 4 is #44, The Lady of the Mirror (Ally)
    Card 5 is #10, The Arrow Master (Ally)
    As Colette says, “You can’t make this stuff up, as it’s all Divine guidance.”
    My reading for my New Moon phase of my life, which I have been getting big nudges from the Divine: “I am WHO I am and am made ready to co-create my purpose with others through selfless service. I no longer need to “prove” myself. I offer gratitude for who others are and where they have placed themselves, as I offer self, without the need to “fix.” I offer my gifts with the intent to merely enlighten them to their own paths. In this I achieve my own purpose.”
    Blessings in the Light in Peace, Love, and Joy to all.
