Want to Know the Energies You Can Expect from This New Moon?

A Special Message About Manifestation Grid From Reverend Pauline Southard

The October Libra New Moon of 2021 arrives early on Wednesday morning, October 6, 2021 waking us from racy Harlequin romance dreams of love and conquest. All too soon we realize as we face the day that our real love life is much more complex. This lunar cycle will compel us to dive into the depths of our relationships so that we may heal them and ourselves. Since this is a very ambitious undertaking, we can expect to encounter some bumps along the way.
 
Libra is represented by a set of scales, highlighting their need for balance and justice. Libra, ruled by Venus craves beauty, love and harmony. Libra is the only object in the Zodiac, emphasizing the importance of justice, balance and equality in Western Astrology. Libra is the second of the three air signs, Gemini and Aquarius are the other two. The air signs are all about how we think and communicate. I always think of Libra as the energetic realm of relationships- all of our relationships. When we incarnate with a Libra Sun sign we are here to learn lessons about relationships which of course, can be very challenging. 
 
At its best Libra is romantic, co-operative, witty, tactful and very intelligent. Lovers of art and beauty, a Libra will appreciate a day at an art gallery followed by a gourmet dinner that is both delicious and aesthetically pleasing. You have never been charmed until you have been charmed by a Libra!
 
However, when Libra energy is used unwisely, it can be indecisive, emotionally detached and willing to go to extreme lengths to avoid confrontation. 
 
Some famous Libras include Kate Winslet, Kim Kardashian, Vladimir Putin and Cardi B. Truly a very disparate group, but all share Libra’s key themes!
 
This New Moon chart, like the majority of the New Moon charts I have analyzed this year is filled with layers of symbolism and complexity. However befitting the lovely nonconfrontational nature of Libra, it is subtle and full of nuance and mercifully hope! While our closest relationships are sure to encounter some seemingly formidable obstacles, there is the potential to create real healing and ultimately more lasting long term changes in how we relate to our romantic partners and spouses and how we communicate. 
 
 As I write this column, I am already seeing the impact of this impending New Moon’s energies on so many of the clients I read for. The predominant theme has been sudden major changes in long term relationships and what each person is willing to accept from their partner.  Just before the New Moon both the Sun and Moon will have opposed Chiron, the wounded healer which has been providing the energy for these relationship shakeups.
 
However, this New Moon with all of its placements below the horizon encourages us to look within and reflect upon our relationship history and the part we play in the success and failure of our relationships. Looking honestly with lots of love and compassion for ourselves and our loved ones has the potential to be deeply healing and transformative now. 
 
 We can begin by being in a quiet place where we won’t be disturbed and relaxing our bodies by stretching and using deep breaths. We can then bring white light into the top of our heads and intend that it clear our entire system as it moves down our bodies and ultimately connects us with the core of Mother Earth. We can then ask for help and guidance. The Buddhist Metta Prayer of Love and compassion is a beautiful way to start. 
One simple version is:
 
“My heart fills with loving kindness. I love myself. May I be happy. May I be well. May I be peaceful. May I be free.
 
May ———— be happy. May ——- be well. May ——– be peaceful. May ———-be free.
 
May all the ones I love be happy.  May they be well. May they be peaceful. May they be free.
 
May all the ones who upset me be happy.  May they be well. May they be peaceful. May they be free.
 
May all beings in my vicinity be happy. May they be well. May they be peaceful. 
May they be free.
 
May all beings in my city be happy. May they be well. May they be peaceful. May they be free.
 
May all beings in my state be happy. May they be well. May they be peaceful. May they be free.
 
May all beings in my country be happy. May they be well. May they be peaceful. May they be free.
 
Then journaling about the history of your relationships and current challenges as well as solutions can be very helpful. It is best for this experience to focus only upon yourself rather than the other person and the role they play. 
 
We will find during this lunation, whether in our personal lives or on the national and even international stage that at the heart of every challenge is the ability or inability to look at the “other” and love and understand them as we strive to love and understand ourselves – no matter how much we disagree with them or how alien their perspective may be seem to be to us. Additionally, it is imperative now to work to communicate calmly and clearly even though at times that will feel incredibly frustrating. Clearly this won’t be a perfect process, and will not work in every situation, but it will get us further than anything else we may try now.
 
Last but certainly not least, Mercury continues its retrograde motion which will end on October 18, 2021. Mercury retrograde occurs three times a year for approximately three weeks at a time.  At this time, Mercury appears to move backwards among the stars. The standard astrological advice is to reflect and plan rather than to move ahead on new projects. This Mercury retrograde will occur in the sign of Libra, which is the sign associated with relationships, justice and diplomacy echoing and amplifying the energy of this Libra lunar cycle.
 
 I would encourage you to make sure you are very clear about what loved ones, friends and co-workers are actually saying. It is all too easy to misunderstand and jump to unwarranted conclusions. It is important as well to communicate clearly and to really know how you feel. Ambivalence could once again be a disaster this cycle!
 
It is always wise to back up your computers, laptops and phones during Mercury retrograde cycles.  Make sure you double and triple check plans and trips, whether they are virtual or actual. If you are depending on Zoom or similar platforms for business or school having a secondary device could save the day. 
 
This month, I felt guided to pull a card from the classic Rider-Waite tarot deck. The Rider-Waite deck is the tarot deck that the vast majority of modern day tarot decks are based on. It was originally published in 1910 by the Rider Company, a division of Penguin/Random House publishers. The Rider-Waite deck was devised by English mystic and poet, Arthur Edward Waite. A.E. Waite’s love for divination and the occult inspired him to create a deck that would appeal to a wider audience. 
 
He ultimately chose Pamela Colman Smith to illustrate the cards. Ms. Smith was the first artist to illustrate the minor arcana cards with people engaging in activities rather than just images of the number of the suit and the appropriate object. I always use a version of this deck, The Radiant Rider-Waite deck to teach my students tarot.
The 8 of Swords popped out of my deck as the answer to my question, “I asked the cards, what do we need to know or do to flow harmoniously with the energies of this New Moon and manifest its most positive potential?”
 
I feel that this is a wonderful answer to this question. The swords represent the suit of air which symbolizes how we think and communicate. The eights in the deck symbolize harmonizing opposing forces, the loss of the old to make space for the new, stability, control and significant changes in relationships. 
 
At first glance the Rider-Waite 8 of Swords appears rather frightening. A woman is bound and handcuffed with eight swords surrounding her. This card can literally represent feeling powerless, blocked, trapped and imprisoned. However, when we look more closely, we see that actually her bonds are quite loose and if she tries she can wriggle out of them, take off her blindfold and walk back to the castle behind her. We then remember that the suit of swords describes how we think. The real problem is we think we are trapped, powerless and restricted. We simply need to change the way we are thinking about the situation and do something different- which is often the most daunting and difficult thing to do!
 
Traditionally I put two or three special crystals into the Manifestation Grid that help us to work with the astrological energies of the current New Moon. These additional crystals will energize the Grid and make it even more effective since I choose crystals that reflect the energy of the totality of the chart, not just the sign that the New Moon is in. I would encourage you to work with them as well since they are perfect for this lunar cycle. I love the energy of both of these crystals and I hope that you will enjoy them as well.
 
The beautiful blue green Amazonite will help us to go within and reflect on how we can have more joyful and real relationships. Amazonite will enable us to see the issues through our partner’s eyes as well as our own. It can further assist us to communicate our thoughts calmly and clearly. If we intend to have dreams that will provide further insight, sleeping with an Amazonite can help us with this process. Just remember to write your dreams down as soon as you awaken! 
 
The gentle Blue Chalcedony is a nurturing stone that promotes peace and harmony. It helps us to dissolve our self doubt and feelings of anger. Chalcedony is known as the Speaker’s Stone. It encourages reflection and meditation, its gentle radiance preparing us for action but helping to hold back words we might regret
 
I have been so grateful for the overwhelming positive response to the Manifestation Grid that I started eight years ago. I love seeing people put their requests into the grid and hearing about all the positive results so many of you have had. Now it is possible to either use the Manifestation Grid in person when you come in to Karma or you may continue to put your requests into the Grid at a distance as you have been doing during the time that the store was closed. 
 
Archangel Metatron, my primary guide had channeled this method to help you to put your requests in remotely:
#1- Please write your intentions on a piece of paper with the date, feeling love in your heart as you do OR for ANY positive purpose whatsoever!
 
#2- Visualize yourself accomplishing your desire. (I would certainly appreciate if you could also request the disappearance of the Corona Virus and the quick healing of ALL of those affected and the healing of all inequality and hate ), feeling love in your heart as you do OR for ANY positive purpose whatsoever!
 
#3- Using the picture on the Karma website, intend to put your request into the grid just as you would if you were in the store. Archangel Metatron has told me that he will help you to make that happen. You do NOT need to be good at visualizing! Every morning I will be charging the Grid with long distance Reiki and other powerful energies to help make your wishes come true.
#4- When you feel that the process is complete you may either dispose of the paper or put it on your altar, refrigerator or paste it into your journal. It is helpful but not necessary to spend a few minutes every day for the next thirty days repeating Step 3. Your intentions will be active in the Grid for the next 30 days!
 
 I am so happy that I am now back at A Time for Karma doing readings in person on Fridays and Saturdays. Reading for you over the last 20 years here at Karma has been one of the most rewarding experiences I have ever had. Please call either A Time for Karma at (516) 442-3200 or you may call me directly at (516) 445-4242 to schedule your reading.
 
Wishing you a Libra lunar cycle filled with love and beauty!

Last Month's New Moon Message

This September New Moon of 2021 arrives promptly at the perfect Virgo time: on Monday evening just in time to remind us that we need to prepare for the rest of the work week and go to bed early.

Virgo the Virgin encompasses a great deal of hidden complexity and depth. It is all too easy to just cast her in the role of the fussy rigid virgin. In fact, she is one of the fertility and harvest Goddesses. She is often depicted holding a sheath of wheat symbolizing the beginning of the harvest season. Her Latin names connote self-sufficiency and self-containment. As the second of the three earth elements, Virgo energy helps us to manifest in very practical specific ways.

At its best Virgo energy is analytical, systemic and logical in a practical manner. Virgo wants to help you merely for the sake of being useful. They are truly humble in a very down to earth fashion. There is a certain unique quality of pure innocence in the Virgo makeup.

When Virgo energy is used unwisely, it can be perfectionistic, critical and extremely self-critical as well as being quite shy and insecure.

Some famous Virgos include: Greta Garbo, Queen Elizabeth I, H.G. Wells, Stephen King, Beyoncé and Cameron Diaz.

This New Moon has three significant components: a conjunction with Hygeia and Mars in the 6th house of the chart, an opposition to Neptune in the 12th house of the chart and finally Mercury slowing down for its final retrograde of the year.

One of the keys to understanding this Virgo New Moon is understanding the significance of the New Moon falling into the 6th house of the chart as set for NY and Washington, DC.

The 6th house of the chart is all about our daily routine, health, illness, healing, coping with stress, pets, diet and exercise. We will see an emphasis on these topics both in our personal lives and in the national discourse.

The most profound impact will be our ongoing war to defeat the CoVid 19 virus. As case numbers, positivity rates and deaths have continued to climb during the summer months, the back to school season will unfortunately accelerate this trend. Hygeia, the asteroid of health and hygiene is closely conjunct this New Moon and Mars. Hygeia has been prominent in each New Moon chart during the course of this pandemic during lunar cycles where CoVid 19 was a major concern nationally. This stellium opposes Neptune which will result in a lot of misinformation. Since Neptune resides in the 12th house of that which is hidden in the chart, it is probable that some portion of this “misinformation” is part of a concerted effort on the part of those who are responsible to gain some benefit for themselves whether it be for power or profit.

As Mars in Virgo opposes Neptune in Pisces, we can expect further flooding from hurricanes and extreme weather systems. This will further complicate efforts to contain the Corona Virus as people are forced to evacuate their homes and shelter with others.

 I believe that this could be the New Moon cycle that makes us realize both regionally and nationally that climate change is a real concrete problem with catastrophic consequences that requires specific massive practical action. This is Virgo at her best!

Last but certainly not least, Mercury will start to slow down and enter its shadow period beginning on Sept 6, 2021 in preparation for the last Mercury retrograde cycle of the year which will start on Sept. 27, 2021 and end on Oct 17, 2021.

Mercury retrograde occurs three times a year for approximately three weeks at a time.  At this time, Mercury appears to move backwards among the stars. The standard astrological advice is to reflect and plan rather than to move ahead on new projects. Things start to slow down and become more difficult as Mercury begins to slow down prior to moving retrograde. This Mercury retrograde will occur in the sign of Libra, which is the sign associated with relationships, justice and diplomacy. (Justice delayed is justice denied- it should be an interesting month for the Supreme Court and the justice system in general)

It is wise to back up your computers, laptops and phones. Make sure you double and triple check plans and trips, whether they are virtual or actual. If you are depending on Zoom or similar platforms for business or school having a secondary device could save the day.

Additionally, I would encourage you to make sure you are very clear about what loved ones, friends and co-workers are actually saying. It is all too easy to misunderstand and jump to unwarranted conclusions. It is important as well to communicate clearly and to really know how you feel. Ambivalence could be a disaster this cycle!

This month, I felt called to pull a card from the “Dreams of Gaia Tarot” by Ravynne Phelan, my favorite deck of the 21st century!  I asked the cards, what do we need to know or do to flow harmoniously with the energies of this New Moon and manifest its most positive potential? The Major Arcana card, “Intuition” slid out of the deck.

 I feel that this card presents us with a really interesting paradox. I always think of Pisces, the sign opposite of Virgo as being most closely associated with our intuitive abilities. Virgo takes much more of a practical hands on approach. We are being asked at this time to once again blend the energy of two opposite signs to create an original approach to this lunar cycle. What might this look like now? In the big picture, checking in with our gut feelings and seeing how that squares with consensual reality. We can connect with the energy of our homes in preparation for the colder weather when we will be inside more and decide how to both energetically and physically clear our space. (Sage always helps!) Analyzing our health and dietary needs and adopting a new realistic diet and exercise program are perfect projects that will yield long term benefits now.

Traditionally I put two or three special crystals into the Manifestation Grid that help us to work with the astrological energies of the current New Moon. These additional crystals will energize the Grid and make it even more effective since I choose crystals that reflect the energy of the totality of the chart, not just the sign that the New Moon is in. I would encourage you to work with them as well since they are perfect for this lunar cycle. I love the energy of both of these crystals and I hope that you will enjoy them as well.

Powerful Nuummite, known as The Scorers’ Stone brings in the empowering aspect of the element of Earth perfect for strengthening the positive aspects of this Virgo New Moon. Nuummite carries the strong and mystical vibration of the earth, which Virgo embodies at her best. It will help us to see beyond facades, allowing us to see what lies beneath words and actions. This is particularly helpful during this lunar cycle as Neptune opposes the New Moon stellium as discussed above.  Additionally, Nuummite can be used to stimulate intellect, enhance memory and promote recall, intuition and psychic wisdom.

The lovely Pink Opal vibrates at a gentle frequency which enhances its calming and soothing effect on our emotions. It is a wonderful stone for those of us who are sensitive and Virgo energy is highly sensitive. Pink Opal relieves fear, worry and anxiety, helping us to become more centered and peaceful- necessary during this lunation!

I have been so grateful for the overwhelming positive response to the Manifestation Grid that I started seven years ago. I love seeing people put their requests into the grid and hearing about all the positive results so many of you have had. Now it is possible to either use the Manifestation Grid in person when you come in to Karma or you may continue to put your requests into the Grid at a distance as you have been doing during the time that the store was closed.

Full Moon

New Moon Manifestation Ritual

During the new moon phase the moon goes from smaller to bigger so it is a great time to manifest anything you would like to increase.

Hand write a list of what you wish to manifest on a piece of paper. Be very specific!

Go outside and read your wishes aloud to the moon. Afterward thank the moon and the universe for listening.

Fold your paper and keep it in a safe and prominent place, such as your altar. Read your list daily, outside if possible, thanking the moon and the universe every time.

Do this every day until the full moon.
When the moon is full, read your list one final time, then burn it in the flame of a candle, sending it up to the universe.

Trust and know that your wishes will be manifested at the perfect time and in the perfect way for you.

Information papers for this ritual as well as for many items in our store are available free of charge every day at Karma!
