The Cosmic Story: Libra New Moon 2018

The Libra New Moon on October 8 th - 9 th sets the stage for a new garden -- a community garden that feeds all of us. We are no longer alone in our undertakings and we've realized that we have to feed each other to achieve our goals.

Libra knows the art of partnership, the need to relate and have an Other who gives us a new awareness of ourselves. Libra is an air sign, so it's not about passion -- save that for Sco rp io! This Libra energy is all about living in 'right relationship' with each other and the world.

But love is always a part of our relationships, isn't it? If love is our ability to connect, then it is present in some form in every one of our relationships. When we're young, our loves begin with projection -- the assumption that the Other has characteristics that, in reality, probably belong to us. Whether it's love of our parents, our siblings, our friends, our first romantic loves, we often see those we love through the emotional glasses of our own needs and beliefs.

As we grow older, we expect other things from our romantic relationships -- shared responsibility, emotional balance, help, acceptance, companionship. And hopefully, there's still passionate sex involved! Even our disagreements provide energy and passion to the relationship. Opposition doesn't really call for splitting apart; opposition calls for finding the correct fit, for holding the tension of opposites until the third option appears. Another opportunity for some great make-up sex!

When our partnerships aren't romantic, we might find ourselves being more courteous, respectful and open to other ways of seeing the world because we feel more objective towards them -- not so vulnerable to their emotional demands. We try to love them, seeing the divine spark within them. We learn collaboration and diplomacy from Libra's partnership energy, knowing that the more perspectives we have on an issue, the more likely we'll discover the truth of the matter.

So how can we start our community gardens? How do we share ourselves and our gifts with others in our lives?

This summer, my small apartment got inundated by many, many boxes of books that I love and value, finally out of storage after 10 years. And I'm happily re-acquainting myself with them. Many I have to let go of for lack of space (so it you live in Rhode Island, come and get some!). But the important ones, my mentors, I'm keeping. I figure I can re-read them all and be re-inspired.
