New Moon in Libra

By Priscila Almeida 

As the moon starts a new cycle in Libra it is time to say goodbye to the Virgo energies. During the last cycle, we had the opportunity to observe all that required inner improvement including cleansing and nourishment of our physical, mental and emotional bodies. The wise ones who took advantage of the Virgo’s cycle most certainly have experienced great healing.

Let’s now welcome a new cycle in Libra.  New moon, time to plant new seeds. We can do this by performing rituals, spells or anything else that anchors you to the energy of the stars – we obviously love to work with crystals :) so be with us till the end of this post to get some crystal inspiration on how to greet and dive into Libra vibes for the next 28 days.

The Libra cycle started on October 17th at 05:32am (AEST) and will have its last waning moment on November 9th at 12:46am (EAST). The parts of the body that are more likely to get hit during this period are kidneys and lower back. 


Like the Moon, the sun is also highlighting issues related to this sign (Libra) encouraging us to take a closer look at our relationships. This is an opportunity to expand our consciousness by bringing awareness to ourselves.

We are under a combination of energies emanated by the moon during its 28-day cycle.  Despite the power of the moon, she doesn’t radiate all those energies alone. The moon communicates with other celestial bodies and signs. As a result of that, we receive certain “bundles” of energy on Earth. So, let's dive deep into interpreting the “energy bundles” from this Libra cycle.

First and foremost, in order to work wisely with the stars, we must understand these “energy bundles” bring us the experiences needed in favour of our evolutionary process.

The practical energy flow in this cycle will be achieved when we can use our ability to bring harmony between the needs of the self to evolve through our relationship with the collective.

This lunar cycle in Libra brings awareness to potential emotional dependencies and how we relate to the other. Are we waiting on the decision from the other to make the most needed changes to our lives or are we positioning ourselves wisely and independently to do it alone? 

The combination of energies from Libra’s moon cycle will bring to the surface experiences that makes us change, modify, transform and resolve most needed aspects of our relationships in order to evolve and transcend. Relationships tend to go through a process of renewal and adaptation, this is necessary so we can experience our bond with the other more aligned to our truth.

It is time to look to our relationships through a magnifying glass to closely investigate the plot of such partnership. During this lunar cycle we will have a more sensitive and critical “radar” to see, feel and perceive the energies that permeate our exchanges.

Through the strong purpose of Libra, it is suggested that we embellish or “mask” situations so there is an apparent equanimity in relationships. However, this is the time of the big reveal – as we will be perceiving the relations of exchange with more truth, anything that is not real or honest will soar. The veil of illusion is being lifted even though Libra wants things to “look” balanced and harmonious.

In order to flow with the energies of this cycle, we are invited to do what Libra does well: recognise our nature and truth through others on the grounds that our relationships are a reflection of who we are. 

The next 28-days will be a time for ends and restarts. What does not have a strong foundation will be more inclined to be deconstructed. This will be a time to review true partnerships and understand where we are relating only at the level of appearances. 

One of the keynotes of this cycle is to either readapt or let go of relationships, based on our truth. The one to answer this difficult question on your journey is your heart.

Take the opportunity to tune into the frequency of the highest vibrations so that we can walk through these bundles of energies in a more fluid way, just as Nature teaches us.

Realise that in relationships we learn about ourselves, how we behave in the face of our deepest desires, instincts, patterns, in front of our light and especially, how much we can learn in front of our shadows.

Your cure is everyone's cure. It's a Planetary cure!

As the new moon marks the beginning of a new lunar cycle, we use the power of crystals to anchor us into the energies of Libra. This is an opportunity to learn about the relationship we have with ourselves and the collective.

We are the creators of our own reality. We constantly co-creating (consciously and unconsciously) the situations of our everyday lives, including the way we relate to ourselves and other around us.

Self-reflection crystal healing exercise 

In order to best experience the "bundle of energies" from this cycle we are suggesting this powerful self reflection exercise. May you find the answers to your questions through communicating with your higher self.

You only need the following:

  • A mirror
  • Tumbled stones 
  • Blue tack

1. First find the problem you often experience when relating to self and others 2. Once you identify what is causing you pain, create a crystal frame in the mirror using tumbled stones and a little blue tack. Stick the stones to the mirror making a frame so when you look at your reflection you can see your face within the crystal frame. 3. After cleansing and charging your crystals, program them to bring healing to your relationships 4. Look at your reflection on a daily basis while questioning "How does my relationship with myself mirrors my relationship with others?"

Make this a daily practice for the entire lunar cycle. You are stabilising a channel of connection with your higher self. During the course of the next 28 days pay close attention to the messages you may receive intuitively.  Surely at the end of the cycle you'll have found some of the answers you were looking for.

Nos despedindo da lunação de Virgem, em que tivemos a oportunidade de observar a minuciosidade de tudo aquilo que pedia o aprimoramento interno. As experiencias se fizeram presentes para que pudéssemos aprender a nutrir os nossos corpos físico, mental e emocional de forma saudável, reverberando toda esta dinâmica também ao nível da alma.

Para quem soube aproveitar, tivemos uma grande oportunidade de cura.

Este é o momento de iniciarmos as nossas magias, e dar as boas-vindas ao novo ciclo! Estamos falando de uma Lunação em libra, que iniciou no dia 17/10 s 05:32am (do fuso horário de Brisbane), e que encerra o seu último instante de fase minguante no dia 9/11 as 0:46min.

As partes do corpo que estarão mais sensibilizadas neste período: Rins e parte inferior da coluna/lombar.


Assim como a Lua, o sol também vem iluminando os assuntos relacionados a este signo (Libra), nos propondo a olhar com mais clareza para as relações, com a oportunidade de expandir o nosso nível de consciência a respeito de nós mesmos.

Estamos falando de um combo energético que a Lua emana diariamente durante o ciclo completo de 28 dias. A Lua não transmite tudo isso sozinha. Ela se “comunica” com outros corpos celestes e com os signos. A partir destas movimentações recebemos na Terra determinados “pacotinhos” de energia.

Então vamos conhecer quais são os pacotinhos deste ciclo?

Para integrarmos as energias com sabedoria, é preciso que saibamos que todos os pacotinhos emanados dos astros nos trazem EXPERIENCIAS e que com os elementos destas experiencias precisamos trabalhar em prol de nosso processo evolutivo.

Temos o livre arbítrio, e direcionar as energias que se apresentam da maneira como escolhemos direcionar, somos livres.

Este ciclo em especial nos presenteia com um combo de fluências harmônicas e também com alguns aspectos desafiadores. Conseguiremos “tornar” estas energias fluentes se utilizamos a nossa capacidade de harmonizar as necessidades do “EU” para expansão através do “NOS”.

Este é um ciclo que propõe a estarmos atentos as possíveis dependências emocionais. O exercício aqui é no sentido de observar o nosso comportamento diante do outro, se vamos esperar as escolhas e decisões do outro para que façamos o que precisa ser feito por nós, ou se nos posicionamos com sabedoria e independência.

            Um dos objetivos desta Lua Nova, é trazer à tona algumas experiencias para que sejam transformadas e transcendidas em nossa vida.

            Os relacionamentos tendem a passar por um processo de renovação/readaptação, para que “no fim” deste ciclo possamos experienciar relações mais alinhadas com a nossa verdade.

Há uma tendência para colocarmos uma “lupinha” em nossas relações, para averiguarmos mais de perto o enredo de tal parceria. Estaremos mais sensíveis e críticos em relação as informações através das nossas trocas interpessoais (inclusive a informação não verbalizada, que se sente).

Estaremos com o “radar” mais sensível, captando mais facilmente as energias que permeiam nossas trocas.

Libra, através da sua forca propósito, nos convida a embelezar ao mesmo tempo que “maquiar” as situações para que haja uma harmonia aparente nas relações. Essa energia lunar combinada com os demais aspectos astrológicos, o que não for real e honesto tende a se revelar durante o ciclo.

Estaremos percebendo com mais verdade as relações de troca, aonde o véu da ilusão se desfaz com as verdades que vão se apresentando. Mesmo que Libra queira que as coisas pareçam equilibradas e harmônicas.

Para fluir com as energias deste ciclo, somos convidados a fazer o que Libra faz bem: reconhecer através do outro a nossa índole e verdade. Pois são nas relações que conhecemos mais a respeito de nós mesmos.

Se trata de uma Lunação de términos e reinícios: o que não está firme tende a ser desconstruído em nossas relações. É um momento de revisar as parcerias e perceber aonde estamos nos relacionando apenas ao nível das aparências.

Uma das grandes tônicas deste ciclo é readaptar ou deixar ir as relações, com base em nossa verdade. “Quem” vai responder sobre isso em sua jornada é seu coração.

É um momento sintonizar a frequência com as mais elevadas vibrações, para que possamos percorrer por estes pacotinhos de energia de maneira mais fluida, assim como a natureza sempre nos convida.

O caminho do meio, o TAO, é uma das lições que podemos aprender neste período.

Perceba que nas relações aprendemos sobre nós mesmos, em como nos comportamos diante dos desejos, instintos, padrões, diante da nossa luz e principalmente, do tanto que podemos aprender diante das nossas sombras.

A sua cura é a cura de todos. É uma cura Planetária!
