A New Moon: a fresh start, the beginning of a new 28-day cycle, time to set intentions and goals you’d like to achieve during the following 28 days.
However, this New Moon a high amount of caution is needed before jumping into the unknown.
This New Moon is in Libra, ruled by Venus the planet of love and partnership. We we will be focusing on relationships (romantic, professional, money, society, and especially the relationship with ourself). It’s time for a next-level type of love.
We have four cosmic bodies in Libra: the sun, the moon, mercury, and mars. This creates a stellium and strongly makes us aware of the element of air. The Element of Air (associated with Aquarius, Libra, and Gemini) rules our thoughts and thought process, inspires new ideas, new ways of thinking, and are the building blocks for changes/ inventions/ new possibilities/ opportunities.
This New Moon is in balanced, air sign Libra. Libra’s are tied to the Justice card in Tarot and are represented by the scales. They take their time to see and weigh both sides in order to help everyone receive a balanced/ fair share. Libra’s are collaborators. They are all about working in harmony with others, nature, and life as a whole.
When Libra energy is heavily present, there is a strong feeling of needing to compromise or “tilt the scales” in favor of our loved ones. However, in doing so you may lose your sense of self and compromise too much for the sake of others.
This New Moon is an optimal time to reclaim your power and balance the scales in your own life, especially if you have people-pleasing tendencies or constantly feel like you’re getting the short end of the stick.
Don’t dismiss your partner, friend, or family member, if they communicate feeling like they’ve been ignored or neglected. Listen with an open-mind and strive for harmony.
This Libra New Moon aligns with Mars. Mars is associated with the God of War and the fire sign Aries. Mars is a planet of confidence, action, energy, desire, courage, survival instincts, assertiveness, adventure, anger, impulse, impatience, and forcefulness.
The influence it has over this new moon is highly motivating and can help us push past our fears in order to make breakthroughs. It can also activate and heighten any emotions related to Mars’. If you’ve been feeling like you have been giving too much, this new moon may trigger emotions which will help you become more aware of the impact/ importance of equal give & take in all of our relationships.
Jupiter and Mercury are both retrograde at this time. Jupiter is stationed retrograde in the sign of Aquarius and Mercury in Libra.
Jupiter is the planet of abundance. It’s presence during this new moon will remind you of the abundance we can receive when the scales are balanced.
On the same day as the new moon, 7 hours after to be exact, Pluto shifts direct after being retrograde since April. Every planet retrogrades at some point, during which we review the area of our life’s the planet rules. The day a planet stations direct is considered a power day. Seeing that this power day coincides with the New Moon, you can expect to feel a huge shift.
Pluto, associated to Scorpio who is represented by the Death card in tarot, is the planet of rebirth, death, transformation, reincarnation, and sex.
Pluto’s influence can bring deep and long-lasting endings, but we can honor what is gone and rebirth it into something new.
Use this New Moon’s energy constructively and apply yourself to a positive form of activity, especially a physical activity. There will be an overwhelming energy of raw, primal sexual desire, which can be turned into passion and romance with self-control and conscious awareness.
You may feel nervous, tense, anxious, and find it hard to relax. Your intuition senses change or some drama is on the way. Keep this in mind, while today people may act impulsively and rashly. This energy is temporary, don’t do anything without fully thinking it through and try to keep a good sense of self-control. Spend the energy on productiveness. Don’t let anyone step all over you, but simply let them know they’re out of line and remove yourself for the time being if possible.
There is potential acts of revenge causing anger turning into violence, rebellion, cyber-attacks, protest, and possibly war. However, there a heavy karmic undertones, meaning these actions will be judged harshly and subject to swift retaliation.
On October 10th, Saturn, the planet of Karma, stations direct. This implies an ending of the cycle of violence.
The best time to start new projects is during the waxing phase of the moon, from this New Moon on October 6th to the Full Moon on October 20th.
Happy New Moon, baby!
