One of the primary themes of this New Moon in Libra is the restoration of relationship harmony. The universe will help create the scenarios, but you also need to do your part. In addition to forgiveness which is the letting go of grievances or perceived wrongdoings against you, I have channeled two additional actions that will help bring about an energetic shift that will both prevent negativity from becoming entrenched and gradually help remove deep traumas bit by bit as they are replaced by the new energy that is establishing itself. Please make note that these can apply to any area of life and not just interpersonal relationships. Firstly, look for the positive in any situation, and yes, it is there. Once you find it, choose to feel gratitude for it. In my case I often blame my parents for my childhood traumas that I am still working through. I focused on the negative and that is all I saw or felt. However, I am very lucky in that my parents have the financial means to help support me while I heal. Of course, I could say that if it weren't for their dysfunction in the first place, I wouldn't be needing the healing now! It could be worse though. It could have been that my parents weren't as well off as they are now, and I could be in the same place, needing to heal, but without the financial support. Therefore, I am now grateful that my parents have the means to unburden me of money worries while I heal. So, whatever the negative situation, find the positive and make a gratitude statement. Secondly, understand that you chose the situation. You are the co-creator. Now, personally I don't believe in the concept of free will as it is often described in the spiritual community - that we make and determine our future through our decisions. For me, our role as co-creator was deciding how we wanted this life to be like and what lessons we wanted to learn from it before we incarnated into it. Everything that is taking place now is actually scripted. If it were any other way, the entire system would collapse, and the reason for that is, time does not exist; everything is playing out simultaneously. If we had free will, it wouldn't work. There is something very peaceful and reassuring about knowing that as this realization helps eliminate our resistance to what is and allows us to be accepting of it, and as a result, we are no longer, or at least less, angry at others for simply playing out their roll, or rather, their pre-scripted parts. In summary, the best ways to contribute to relationship harmony and heal in the process are to forgive, feel gratitude and know that everything is being playing out exactly as it is meant and supposed to.
