The New Moon is the monthly meeting of the Sun and the Moon in the same sign. This combination makes for a great potency that, when harnessed, encourages anything that is initiated or asked. The best time to set New Moon intentions is the following few days after the aspect is exact, once the dust has settled, but the day of is usually fine too. Warning: avoid setting intentions before the New Moon is exact and/or during the void-of-course moon. [See below for the best times to make your wish.]

This New Moon is in the sign of Libra


the Scales
Element: Air
Modality: Cardinal
Ruling Planet: Venus

Keywords: Scales of Justice, Peace Treaties, Diplomacy, Politics, Compromise, Balance, Harmonics, Aesthetic Sensitivity, Leverage, Interpersonal Awareness, Social Refinement, Indulgence


Since this New Moon is in Libra, sign symbolized by The Scales, the wishes you make and the intentions you set will be most powerful when they are in alignment with Libran themes such as relationships, aesthetics (beauty, style, fashion, the arts, etc.), and anything having to do with balance, peace, harmony, equality, & justice.
Libra, as an archetype, represents seeing oneself and the world through the eyes of another, so this energy is highly aware of the “other” perspective in any given situation. Because of this it is important to watch out for indecision and being “on the fence” for too long without making a move. Once the options are weighed, commit to the most appropriate action, and be prepared for the inevitable “equal & opposite” reaction.
BTW: Libra is the ONLY sign that is not represented by a human or an animal. The Scales are an inanimate object. In other words, DON’T TAKE IT PERSONAL 😉 Just take it, and make it work. Allow it, bruv.
My favorite thing about Libra? When working with this energy, we all have the potential to identify the best angle of any circumstance so that even in the worst predicament, we can spin the story to make it work for us in some capacity rather than allowing the “bad” to throw us off balance. Libra rules persuasion, so with a little creativity, a lot of charm, and a solid argument, every conceivable problem is as good as resolved.
As mentioned above, it is best to avoid setting intentions BEFoRE the New Moon reaches the point of its exactitude and DURiNG the void-of-course moon, as both scenarios would weaken the celestial receptivity we have been discussing. Here are periods of time I believe are best to set intentions, make a wish, or request a preference…

Best Times To Set Intentions:
– 9/30/16 anytime after 8:11 PM EST
– 10/1/16 anytime, all day EST
– 10/2/16 anytime before 1:43 am & anytime after 3:43 PM EST

#ThreeFictionalCharacters: An Essay of Indecision

I’m sure you’ve heard of the latest Twitter trending tropic/challenge/meme called Three Fictional Characters. I’m sure this isn’t any sort of PATRIOT ACT trap [couldn’t be], so I’ve decided to go ahead and volunteer this [potentially incriminating] personal information with the good people of the internet [and the CIA… the whole thing]. I’m sure, very.


Okay, so I’m being extra, but it was too hard to choose + plus it was really fun to look back at some of my favorite characters from television shows that came on when I was growing up. I decided instead of doing just three fictional characters that describe my personality, I would list six – three fictional men and three fictional women.

The Men:


Kyle Barker [Living Single] was the perfect balance of Classic Man and Hotep Hipster. His locs were hair goals and his wardrobe was pre-fleek. Plus, he was shady AF, but like… so smoov. This man taught me more than I know, and he is the reason why I know as an adult that I don’t have to compromise the rich vibrancy of my culture to be taken seriously as a professional.
