New Moons offer us opportunities of great potentiality. During this time we can plant a seed by creating a powerful intention of what we want to grow during the next four weeks.
Given that the New Moon on October 15 occurs in Libra, choosing relationships as the area of life we want to focus upon can be especially auspicious. Using the image of the Scales, the Libra symbol, weigh and measure the value of your current relationships, considering their strengths and weaknesses. Use what you learned through this exercise to create an intention for what you want to see manifest in the here and now.
Additionally, think back to the week of June 25. At this time, learning-lessons Saturn was shifting into direct motion at a similar place in Libra as where this New Moon occurs. Therefore, insights you gleaned at that time about your relationship to relationships may serve as great inspiration to source what you want to create anew in your life.
Since Libra inclines us towards sharing our experiences with others and learning from them as well, doing this intention-setting exercise with a friend may make it even more significant. The process of declaration gives power to an intention. Additionally, by teaming up with someone, you each have a witness—as well as a cheerleader—to help you keep your New Moon intentions alive throughout the month.
