:::::::::::::::::::::::::::::

New Moon signals a time of new beginnings; void moons a time of contemplation and insight.  

This Libra New Moon delivered me off the scale fluctuation of feelings, restoration of balance using the sword of truth . . . rapid-fire insights were incoming from all quarters.

Did you feel a shake up in your Libra house ?

Libra is my MC, Moon passed over my Merc on the way to the new phase – so women, public and my thoughts and feelings surrounding relationships, balance and reciprocation were either folding themselves up for good, or spreading their wings to fly like paper cranes all around me.

Beautiful Venus does love her mirrors.

When I drew the Mirror card in the Wild Wood Tarot it perfectly described my fluctuating thoughts, feelings, and perceptions revolving around status, power, fame and friendship during this moon phase.

She also describes qualities of both luminaries meeting in the sign of balance and fairness – the house of others.

Unlike the Hooded Man who chooses solitude, the Mirror indicates being forced to surrender personal will, forced to be open to the ways of the universe, forced to quietly, patiently await for insights to reveal themselves as they will.
::::::::::::::::::
The Mirror sees both sides, she is uniquely attuned to both the inner and outer realms.
She is aligned with the Hangman, sacrifice, insight, Odin and the runic alphabet.
The Mirror is the Lady of the Lake, keeper of the magikcal sword, Excalibur.

Swords represent AIR: thought, insight, clarity, truth and justice.  Very Libra.

The mirror brings gifts of emotional growth, clarity of purpose, the bare truth of subconscious made manifest in waking life.  She reflects a wounding, the keen instincts and insights that come from passing through the dangers of the shadow world where warriors seek enlightenment.  She is dual, polarity and reveals a complete shift in awareness.

Is this not true of all relationships ?

What was one (Sun), now becomes two (Moon), the shift in balance is ongoing thereafter.  Diplomacy and compromise, bonds and contracts, love and war are also present in the world of Libra, the world of two, the world of mirrors. (First house Aries – ME opposes seventh house Libra YOU.)  Oppositions often play themselves out in the form of projection / reflection. 

Libra New Moon (conjunct Sun – all new moons are conjunct Sun) is particularly geared for understanding developing relationships and creatively loving the seed of willpower that lies deep within ourselves.

Although every moment holds the promise of change, New Moons accentuate this promise, they urge us forward in the process by holding up the mirror to ourselves.

During New Moons we (conscious – solar / subconscious – lunar) are side by side looking into the mirror : two FEELS more like ONE.  Instinct and will are a team, setting intentions for growth during the coming lunar cycle.

New Moons force us to grow into the knowledge of the next full moon.

During Full Moons two FEELS more like TWO, because we are at odds with the other side of ourselves, at odds with the reflection, at odds with the OTHER.  (Full Moons are always opposite Sun) Instinct and will are in peace talks, they are AWARE of their separateness.  Understanding, illumination and growth is at a peak – knowledge courses in from all sectors.

The Full lunar orb reflects / mirrors the rays of the solar force.
Instinct and willpower are eyeball to eyeball.
Subconscious self SEES the conscious self SEES the subconscious self.
Our creations are locked and loaded – visible.
Full Moon illumination – new moon intentions – are manifest, realized.

One becomes Two.
Choice is inevitable.
Everything changes.

I choose the way of the Jedi.
I will use The FORCE for defense only.
I choose balance.
I choose peace.
I choose love.
