Fall into new endeavors, adventures, and realms during the New Moon in Libra, it’s the perfect time to create balance. The transition between summer, yang/outward actions, and autumn, yin/inner reflection is an importance time to establish equilibrium to cultivate good health in body,mind, and spirit. As we weather possible outer turbulence, focusing on a desired outcome, such as peace and tranquility, enables us to stay grounded and generate the power needed to initiate new outcomes. In Chinese Medicine, the ancient concept of balancing polarities is expressed in the symbol of yin/yang. Here we see an image of maintaining the center while embracing all aspects of being.
The Autumn season is related to the Lung and Large Intestine organ systems, as well as the Metal element, Air, in Chinese Medicine. As the weather changes, this is the time to get acupuncture to build up your Wei-Qi, defensive energy to protect you from the invasion of flu and colds. The Wei-Qi circulates on the surface between the skin and muscles and works to warm the body. If the Wei-Qi is weak, the body will not be warmed properly. This is why people tend to feel cold when they’re sick. It is important to protect the back of the neck from wind invading the body and eat warming foods as well. Also the willingness to let go of excessive grief and worry will help ensure a stronger immune system. Acupuncture healing sessions can strengthen the lungs preventing frequent colds, and calm the nervous system from excess stress.
