The New Moon in Libra on October 30th began a new Lunar Cycle focusing on exploring our happiness with others and the ways we may lose our own personal power if we lose connection with our own needs and instead focus only on giving others what they want.
Libra is very much about learning compromise in relationships with others and finding interpersonal and social equality. The challenge for the Sun here is that the Sun represent our Personal Power, and it can lose its focus and confidence when faced with feeling the need to ensure the happiness of others.
When the Sun is in Libra, we can become too concerned with what others think of us to be able to be true to ourselves. And we may also become too influenced by the ideas and needs of those around us to remain clear on what we even want or what is important to us.
As a reflection of this, I know many people who just before, during and following the election have “taken a break from Facebook”. Navigating all of the opinions, reactions, fear, and negativity from friends and others became just too overwhelming to be able to remain centered in one’s own truth and maintain a sense of peace.
What does Full Moon in Aries Bring?
The Full Moon in Aries at 9am EST on November 14th, 2016 is that natural balance point to this challenging placement of the Sun. The Sun remains in Libra, but the Moon (Mind) enters Aries where it has a chance to recharge and strengthen its own individual Will. Aries invites the Moon to feel inspired, confidence and strong. This reminds us that even when we are connected to other, we must also be able to access our individual strength and courage.
By keeping our Mind and inner heart connected to our own strength and sense of personal power, we are able to more easily remain strong even in relationship to the needs and opinions of others. This should inspire some new hope and optimism.
And early on November 16th, the Sun will shift into Scorpio which will help to facilitate a change in our perception of power. In order to change them, we may collectively need to face some practical truths.
