Don’t question clarity when it finally arrives, even if it slips in gently with the moonlight. Relax, smile, and pour yourself a cup of chamomile tea as you realize you can’t rush knowing, just as you can’t ignore it when it settles into your heart like a gentle peace. It is time to move forward, take the smallest steps toward your dreams, and realize everything is happening in divine timing.
Sunday, September 17, brings the Waxing Crescent Moon in Libra as you feel that suddenly, overnight, everything has changed and you are invited to take a leap of faith as you honor the desires of your heart. The Waxing Crescent Moon occurs as it begins to build toward fullness as you are guided to take positive steps of action while embracing your faith and the divine motivation that is compelling you forward into newness.
In Libra, the Moon helps to bring about more loving and nurturing feelings as you can see everything in a more optimistic light. This allows you to engage with the harmonizing compromise of a Libra Moon to see the best way to manifest what you desire.
As Mercury recently stations direct in Virgo, embracing your newfound freedom in making decisions and harnessing forward momentum in your life can take some time. However, this is also where the Waxing Crescent Moon in Libra asks you to leap faith. To trust in yourself, your growth, and the divine timing that everything occurs within.
To manifest with the Waxing Crescent Moon in Libra, it’s essential to focus your rituals in the evening hours while embracing a sense of positivity and faith that nothing has been lost, which is meant for you. To add greater strength to your practice, incorporate the elements of Libra using chamomile, lavender, rosemary, licorice, jasmine and rose.
You can also think of wearing rose quartz or labradorite jewelry against your heart chakra, which this air sign rules. Tune into your inner spirit, and take heart that the clarity you’re receiving to move forward is divinely guided because while there is a time for reflection and action, there is no time like the present moment to make all your dreams a reality.
