[Libra new moon alert]
The truth is relentless.
It will knock on your door until you open it. The longer it goes unanswered, the bigger the build up, the more destructive the entrance.
This current new moon in Libra is asking us to examine our lives, to see the lies and deceit that have filled our minds and hearts. We are highly adaptable beings. It's crucial to our survival, and yet it's also to our detriment.
Why are women and men still being sexually assaulted? We have all known for so long. We became adapt. "That's just how the world is," we may say in sad defeat.
Libra also asks us to balance our energy.
It begs us to spend as much time and resources on looking within as without.
The Truth is that we create our own realities. So what we are seeing out in the world, as appalling as it may be, is a true reflection of our inner world.
Now I can look at this and say, "I've never sexually assaulted anyone." While this is true, I have used my body to manipulate men.
I have used my body to sell myself, to get ahead.
I have used my body as an object to get what I want.
While this does not give anyone permission to violate my body in any way, it is not irrelevant.
It does add to the problem.
The relationship we each have to our own body is only one of many.
There are endless relationships we have - with our family, community, partners, work, money... and in the end, they all circle back to how we relate to ourselves.
Libra asks us to look at our relationships. Feel where there is disharmony.
See the lies you've been telling yourself and others to keep things easy and avoid conflict.
Take responsibility for yourself - the role you play in all of this.
Yes, you can change the things that don't feel right in your life.
You can change the way you relate to yourself.
In fact, that's the only thing you can change.
And in the process, watch the world around you transform.
Observe how your relationships change as you change.
It's not about "them." It's always about "us." So as Truth is banging on your door, asking you to open your heart and mind to the truth of what is actually happening, even if it means feeling uncomfortable - will you answer?
