Happiness Project (7) Libra New Moon: Make Inner Peace The Priority

Every month, we’re adding new intentions/activities for our happiness project during the new moon. Feel free to join in and/or set your own new monthly goals!

Libra New Moon occurs on October 7th, 2010 at 2:44PM EDT

Balance. Fairness. Peace. When you make this month’s resolutions, consider the balancing scale that represents the Libra archetype. My resolution is to make inner peace the first priority this month.

As the delicate image of the scale suggests, maintaining inner calm is a balancing act at the best of times. Internally, most of us are a mass of conflicting priorities and responsibilities, each of them vying to take the center stage of our psyche.

As a worker, a family member, a spouse or a parent, we’re pulled from so many directions at once, that being stressed out could become the habitual response to life. During this month, however, you may find it easier to to experience inner calm and peace by making it a priority.

Several benefits you may experience:

1) When you decide to make inner peace the priority, you may notice that there will be a shift in awareness, and you begin to be less affected by thoughts of stress.

2) You might become aware of “missing elements” in your life that would make you feel more content and calm on the inside. I’ve recently began drawing again using a tablet, and somehow that seems to fill the missing piece inside, perhaps by allowing the creative expression from my inner child.

3) Your relationships will improve. You realize that you can’t afford to hate anyone while trying to experience inner peace.

On Venus Retrograde: October 8 – November 18, 2010
Libra’s ruler Venus will turn retrograde a day after the new moon, making this a perfect period to improve your relationship with yourself. To be a soulmate, you need to first nourish your own soul. Cultivating inner peace seems to fit well with Venus retrograde, and so does developing self love, through new ways of nurturing ourselves.

What will your resolution be for this period? Feel free to share through email or comments…

    this is amazing!

    I've read the Happiness Project last Summer and I've been thinking about starting my own in the near future.

    At the same time, I've been learning astrology for sometime now and usually work with the new moon's energy… not always, but many times over the past 3 to 4 years.

    A few days ago, I've just thought about bringing these two ideas together… and today I find your blog, in which "my" idea is already being materialized. It's amazing!

    Just to say that I loved it and might try to follow your posts.
    And as from my next solar return I might start my own new moon-oriented happiness project… but in a more private way, you know?… too much scorpio in the chart :) :) :)
