Balance Exercises – Equality, Love, Art, Harmony
In a spirit of change we make adjustments and focus on making our lives more harmonious, finding new balances in love and relationships with others.
The New Moon in Libra activates a new intention in creating bridges, by ‘marrying’ elements that will contribute to a more harmonious engagement with the environment of life.

Libra, ruled by Venus, is the exaltation of Saturn, and in this cycle we may experience an air of formality that emerges through the social context of life, whether it concerns values, relationships, partnerships, or art and culture.

The Moon in Libra needs relationships, and harmonises through social etiquette, values, and artistic expression. It is responding to equality, sense of fairness, and is destabilised by conflicts. So, any disharmony will be strongly felt. Continue reading
