A new moon represents the end of one cycle and the beginning of another - this is an excellent time for a fresh start and it gives us the opportunity to ride the wave of energy associated with the corresponding alignment in the sky
The new moon this month is in Libra, and just the image of the Libra scales helps to remember the energy this is bringing us...
We are being called to find balance in our routine and within our hearts and mind. This is a time we are reminded to open up to the wisdom inside ourselves and tune in and pay attention.
Ask yourself, "how are you choosing to spend your energy? How do I feel? What is it my body is asking for?"
Yesterday I was out for a hike and halfway through my body was telling me it was tired and my hamstrings were aching. I've been spending a lot of time the last few months packing the juice boxes, and bending over habitually is putting strain on the back of my legs. As I finished the hike, I heard my body ask for more yoga, git back into the routine and build strength and flexibility. Today as I was in Savasana (corpse pose) at the end of the class, I felt my body say "thank you!"
Listening and tuning in when our body and heart have something to say (all the time right) is an act of self love and usually brings us back to a state of awareness and balance.
Take time this new moon weekend to tune in and find that harmonious place and feel you are right where you should be.
