The new moon fell in my 2nd house of values, and being in Libra, also beauty and balance.
And that is why I began this blog, as a reminder to regain, or come back into balance when I notice I am teetering on the edge.
I've notice the theme of extremes in my life over the last few months. It was visible in my life, and in my face to see clearly.
Life constantly gives us messages in so many ways. In our relationships, or in nature. We just need to keep our minds open to it and our hearts as well.
Nature, and it's cycles of life and death, present us with an abundance of examples.
In the summer, I usually photograph these lotus in full bloom, but I can see the beauty in their releasing as well.
Releasing the seeds for new flowers, new blossoms that will capture our attention.
New moons are like planting seeds, new intentions for ourselves.
I choose to plant seeds of nurturing myself.
I read that if we can nurture ourselves 51 % of the time, we can easily nurture others 49 % of the time.
We must fill our own well, in order to give to others.
Find that fine line of balance between you and others. Libra rules relationships.
There is also a reminder from that lotus, that in order for the new to come, you must release, let go of that which needs to leave.
Make room for something new.
There is a risk in letting go, a fear that what will come may not be to our liking.
We are comfortable with what we know, but in order to grow, we must learn to take risks, or the Universe just may do it for us.
So, I look to what needs to be released, what has lost it's value but I continue to hold on to anyway... just in case.
If I let them go, I can look at them as seeds. Releasing them to the wind, finding fertile ground in which new life will begin.
