Balance, peace, and taking turns: The Libra Moon

Today the moon is in the sign of Libra.

Yesterday while I was driving Lyndon to school, he pointed out that people seemed to be moving slowly. That fits in with the Libra agenda of taking it easy. It also fits in with the Libra challenge of taking turns. A pedestrian sauntered in front of our car, nowhere near a crosswalk. We got stuck behind a sanitation truck. When the moon is in Libra it’s not just about us. Circumstances will probably make that pretty clear. Relax. Breathe. We might have to accommodate the other more than we want to.

Yet not too much: Libra is not just about the other, either. What do we want or need, too? What works best for both of us?

Today remember to check in with others. Communicate what you want but also ask them what they want. Try to see things from a different point of view. Seeking the middle ground, today we can find ways to help and even appreciate each other.

And as the moon squares Pluto, if you face a hard truth or a daunting task, try to notice signs of comfort, beauty, love, and support. You’re not alone. You can do this.

To those celebrating Rosh Hashanah, Shanah Tovah. May you be inscribed and sealed for a good year.
