Meditation For Inner Balance

Inner Balance

At the New Moon in Libra, we start a new journey to find inner balance. When the Moon lines up with the Sun, it disappears into the Sun’s heart to initiate a new cycle. Libra symbolizes the concept of balance, which requires an understanding of all sides inside and out. The process of inner balance starts by noticing your internal dialogue, especially when interacting with others. As you tune in, you begin to master the art of the pause, which allows you to speak from a place of equanimity.

Balance And Communication

As a Cardinal Air sign, Libra creates opportunities for better discourse with each other. Learning to communicate effectively keeps the therapists in business. It is a hard skill to do well, especially as we wade through the layers of emotions in our relationships. Taking a pause, whether for a solo weekend or a single breath, grants a window of space for clear communication. Inner balance comes from taking the time to get to know your underlying values and desires, and speaking with this better understanding. It then becomes easier to truly listen to others. Above all else, Libra desires cooperation and symmetry, which when authentic, comes from internal evenness. Otherwise, Libra gets so concerned about the appearance of harmony that it loses touch with its own opinion, fails to make a decision, and falls out of equilibrium.

In Practice

This Libra season focuses the attention on communicating for the purpose of collaborating with others. Libra’s opposite sign of Aries plays a significant role, requiring that you find the courage to assert your individual viewpoint and risk conflict, without being overbearing or pompous. Balance is attained when you stand your own ground yet adopt a cooperative approach for common benefit. Pause with your feet on the ground to gather your thoughts, especially because your words hold hidden clout and may cut deeper that you intended. You also may need to lean on something intangible, like your spiritual practice or belief in compassion, to provide trust if clarity abandons you.

Using your Rising sign, read below to see where your need to cooperate with others plays out against your need to assert your autonomy. Also pay special attention to the empowerment that comes from your integrity in other parts of your life.

Aries: Notice the potential for increased harmony that comes from cooperating with your primary partnerships. Seek to expand your sense of self-awareness by asking what you need to develop for your evolution. Let your profession empower you.

Taurus: Review your overall health routines for balance. Connect with others to help get you on track. Be brave and engage them in deep conversations about consciousness. Open your mind to embrace different viewpoints.

Gemini: Recognize how you can apply equanimity as you give unconditional love to others. Find balance through playfulness. Use your exceptional leadership ability to say what needs to be said to your community. Let your ability to draw clear boundaries with others serve you.
