What I’m coming to understand about balance is how much of it requires accepting our darkness.
Especially at this time of year, as the nights become longer, it literally is a call to start residing in the dark – getting comfortable with the shadows.
This New Moon falls in the sign of Libra, a sign symbolic of partnership and reconciliation.
However this New Moon feels like it is about all of that…and then some.
Often it is in our relationships with others that the potential for darkness is at it’s most strong.
Anyone who has been in a long term relationship will be able to tell you how much they’ve surprised themselves in times of anger and distress.
How they’ve done things they never thought they would.
Relating to others can bring out the worst and the best in us, and this New Moon is asking us to look at that.
What are you refusing to accept about yourself?
What traits in yourself do you deem as undesirable?
These very things need to be integrated and loved as what makes up the whole you.
We must understand what we are capable of on both sides of the scale to show up truly balanced.
It is never about another.
It is always about what’s going on within.
Much love Txx
