Libra New Moon: Reset Your Love Vibe

Arielle and Brian
Are you connected to your core love vibration? Did you even know you had one? According to relationship expert Arielle Ford, we are all born with a unique signal that we broadcast, attracting those of a similar vibe. That’s how soulmates and best friends find each other. Yet, says Ford, most of us have been knocked out of sync with this natural vibration through fear, insecurity and life’s slings and arrows. We therefore end up attracting people and situations that don’t match our true essence.

It’s easy to get back in touch with your love vibe, however. Try this HeartMath technique right now: Put your hand over your heart and breathe in deeply while imagining a person or pet you adore—past or present. Really feel into the love. Once you’re blissful and serene, you’re tuned in to your love frequency. I tried this for the first time at a recent salsa festival in Long Beach. Wandering around in the blistering heat, I radiated my love vibe to all. Nobody seemed to notice—but I was on top of the world (at least until the heat got to me!)

Ford recommends tuning in to your love vibe as often as possible to attain greater harmony within yourself, which is the prerequisite for finding your soulmate. She says it took her six months of doing various things—including tweaking her love vibe and going to a few therapy sessions to overcome her fear of commitment—before she attracted her husband Brian. (Read her inspirational book, The Soulmate Secret, to find out her winning three-step formula—which includes getting clear on what you want, releasing energetic anchors to the past and feeling grateful.) Arielle and Brian have been happily married for 16 years, and she is now dedicated to helping others get in touch with their true selves, manifest the mate they were destined for and improve relationships.

We’re coming into a stellar time to reset your love vibe and/or manifest your mate. The Libra New Moon (Tuesday, Sept. 23 at 11:14 pm PDT) falls right on the heels of the Fall Equinox, or Sun’s entry into Libra, the night before. Libra is all about beauty, harmony, fairness—and most of all love. Also on the 22nd, Pluto stations direct after a long, hard backward slog through Capricorn since April. Pluto’s retrograde was for the purpose of generating internal heat and combustion to burn away old habits and beliefs. Now that the Lord of the Underworld is turning forward, we’re ready to give birth to our true selves. At the Equinox, key soul contracts can be broken if necessary and new ones formed. Take advantage of next week’s potent window of opportunity for shifting the energy in your relationships.

At this New Moon, set intentions, perform rituals and create a vision board showing what kind of relationship energy you’d like to bring in (hint: if you can feel it, you can manifest it!). And, you’ll certainly want to clean, clear and enhance your Love gua (furthest right hand corner of your home as you enter the front door.) For help with this, as well as opening your heart and strengthening your love vibe, check out this Libra New Moon ritual from my book, Astro Feng Shui: Making Magic in Your Home and Life. At the bottom of that page, you’ll also find a mini-video showing how I helped one woman transform her bedroom to attract more love within and without.
