New Moon Reflections for Libra

Written by Ronni Lynn

According to Jan Spiller's marvelous book New Moon Astrology (Bantam Books) each month there is an opportunity to make personal wishes withrepparttar advent ofrepparttar 122262 New Moon.

The moon changes astrological signs approximately every two days. However, whenrepparttar 122263 moon exactly conjunctsrepparttar 122264 sun (shares it’s astrological degree), it is no longer visible inrepparttar 122265 sky and at this point inrepparttar 122266 lunar cycle it is called a "NewMoon". This occurs once every month (in rare instances, twice) and marksrepparttar 122267 beginning of a new monthly astrological cycle.

The new moon signifies a start of a new personal cycle each month. It's a time to renew or revise our goals, reach for what we wish for most and renew ourselves. When setting goals or aspiring towards our dreams and desires it is important to keep a few things in mind. First of all, our wishes can only involve ourselves. We cannot try to change others, only our attitudes towards those people, in hopes that they will respond favorably to us. Another important aspect of this process is to meditate onrepparttar 122268 qualities ofrepparttar 122269 sign thatrepparttar 122270 new moon is occurring in. These astrological qualities will give us powerful hints on what to strive for, and how to approach or strategize towards what we want to accomplish. It is a good idea to set approximately 10 goals or wishes each month. Jan Spiller also suggests that you do not combine several wishes into one wish! Keep your thoughts clear and separate, and write them down each month. I recommend a special notebook or journal exclusively used for this purpose.

It is often best not to include a wish unless you can clearly visualize it coming into fruition within your imagination. If not, there may be preliminary steps you need to take first, so instead, try visualizing these. Trust your feelings and intuition in this process- you will know what feels right. Some wishes become realized soon afterrepparttar 122271 new moon. Others are more resistant and can take many months. Keep repeating wishes each month until they begin coming true as long as you continue to believe that they are right for you. When things in your life such as people, events, and your own attitudes begin to "shift", welcome this new change as evidence that your life is now reflecting your positive intentions. Try to go along with these shifts, as they may be helping you fulfill a wish!

Whenrepparttar 122272 new moon is inrepparttar 122273 astrological sign of Libra we can begin to focus on how we interact with other people. Libra isrepparttar 122274 sign that teaches us about healthy and balanced relationships. The reason that relationships require constant balance is that they involve two people. It is very fitting then, that Libra’s symbol isrepparttar 122275 “Scales”.

This month we would benefit from contemplating our relationships. In any relationship, romantic or otherwise, both partners must acceptrepparttar 122276 uniqueness andrepparttar 122277 differences ofrepparttar 122278 other person while not forgetting themselves inrepparttar 122279 process. This isn't so easy as we all know. This goes for all sorts of partnerships including marriage or long-term romantic partners as well as business relations, student-teacher relationships, close friendships and so on. When you refer to another as "my" as in "my boyfriend", "my co-worker" "my teacher" or "my business partner" they fall intorepparttar 122280 Libra realm of significant others. As we wish for harmony and balance this month, you may feel a gentle shift in your reactions to others. Welcome this change in yourself as it could be just what you need to get a fresh start on how you relate interpersonally.

Before embarking on healthy relationships or when entering into negotiations with others, it is most vital that a preliminary step is taken. This step acts as a foundation for relating in a balanced way with others. What is this step? It is "knowing thyself"! First formulate a clear picture of who you are and what you want in relation torepparttar 122281 other person or social situation. If you are going to compromise with others, as is usuallyrepparttar 122282 case, it is important that you are aware of what you may be altering or giving up. If there is something that you are unable to compromise about, it is good to go into a relationship knowing this beforehand- before you run into a roadblock with this person.

Being Human, Being Spiritual

We had some interesting comments on last week’s newsletter, Pay Attention To What You’re Paying Attention To. For those of you who didn’t see it, Joseph and I talked about a cooking “accident” I had. It was a kitchen fire which could have easily burned my house down.

Most ofrepparttar comments were, as usual, supportive and positive. Some were not. Which is fine. I’ve always encouraged your honest feedback, positive or negative.

I don’t do this often, but this week I want to talk aboutrepparttar 122261 negative feedback.

That feedback could be condensed into a single question:

How could you,repparttar 122262 channel for this wonderful spirit guide, Joseph, haverepparttar 122263 challenges other humans do? (That is, how could you, of all people, have almost burned your house down?)

Over many years now, in this newsletter and in my private correspondence with many of you, I have never made a secret of my human challenges. Or pretended I was superhuman. In fact, my challenges sometimes provide “fodder” for subjects Chief Joseph wants to talk about. As wasrepparttar 122264 case last week–and this week too.

Nevertheless, some of you have clearly put me up on a pedestal. Being on a pedestal is very uncomfortable. At least for me.

One woman even said she could barely imagine me inrepparttar 122265 kitchen cooking. Like ordinary mortals, I guess she meant.

Folks, I’m as human as allrepparttar 122266 rest of you. Still growing and remembering. And I’m as spiritual as allrepparttar 122267 rest of you. All-powerful and all-wise.

We’re all human and spiritual atrepparttar 122268 same time. Being human doesn’t make us any less spiritual. And being spiritual doesn’t make us any less human.

Chief Joseph

You’ll never get your life over and done with–there are no destinations, only endless journeys. You’re always growing, whether in human or spirit form.

And so, in that spirit of adventure, your souls have often decided to project themselves, if you will, into physical form. You’ve all done this many times overrepparttar 122269 eons, in far more physical lifetimes than you could ever recall from your current human perspective.

You and your soul–or higher self, or whatever term you prefer–are eternally one, eternally bonded. This human personality you now are, and this human body you have now, are simply an extension of that greater you–your soul, your higher self.
