Astrology Forecast: Libra New Moon
New Moons mark the beginning of a new month-long lunar cycle, but also a year-long cycle that ends on the next New Moon in the same sign. The cycle peaks on the Full Moon of the same sign, which happens 6 months between the two New Moons, during the Sun sign that is opposite the sign of the Moon. So in the case of the Libra Cycle, the Full Moon in Libra will occur during Aries season, which is the sign opposite of Libra both in the wheel and personality traits. I like to make a point to take note of the astrological happenings in my journal, so that I may revisit the feelings and lessons I was experiencing at that time. These are usually themes of the cycle that are highlighted, and have high opportunity for healing during this time. The first step in transformation is recognition of what needs changed, and it’s easier to discover and keep track of patterns and progress when you write in a journal.
The October New Moon falls in the sign of Libra on Monday, October 8th, and will bring in a new wave of loving, transformative energy. Libra is the peacemaker of the zodiac, represented by a set of scales, usually held by a fair, just, and beautiful woman. Because Libra’s are so good at objectivity and seeing all sides of a situation, they can be very indecisive and somewhat aloof. They have an air of dreaminess, but at the same time are very logical in thought.
This New Moon will offer us a breath of fresh air and a new perspective on our priorities and habits. Libras are thought to be connected with angels, and this connection makes them highly intuitive. By opening our Hearts to this intuitive energy, we may receive insights on outdated patterns that need revamped, and even guidance on how to break these cycles.
The reason this New Moon is so transformative is because it occurs just three days after Venus, Libra’s ruling planet, goes into retrograde. Because Venus is Libras ruling planet, they deal with the same areas of life: relationships, wealth, and love. This New Moon calls to observe where our actions and behaviors are out of alignment with our Higher Self, whether it be eating habits, substance abuse, Netflix addiction, toxic relationships, over or underspending, negative self-talk… the list goes on. Anything you do that is not out of love for yourself will be brought into question.
Relationships that bring you more harm than good will be highlighted during this New Moon and for the duration of Venus Retrograde. Situations are likely to arise around this time that show you someone’s true colors, bring conflicts to a head, or give you the opportunity fix or end the relationship. New Moons are about new beginnings, and there are sure to be some new waves made in your unhealthy relationships. Check out my Venus Retrograde blog post here for more information!
Maybe instead of watching Netflix to unwind, you could stretch or sit in nature. If you abuse substances, even if it’s just coffee, weed, or sugar, you may be given a push to curb your intake. If you have relationships that are bringing more negativity in your life than good, you will be given the opportunity to end them.
There is a focus on revisiting habits that you have already tried to change in the past. New ways to tackle these habits may be revealed. Look at the ways you tried to change these things, and this new moon will show you where you went wrong, and where to go from here. You will be given a push to break the pattern, get out of the rut, and continue on your journey as a human on this Earth.
This New Moon will breathe uplifting energy into your transformation, and show you new ways to tackle these things that need changing. There is a deep sense of awareness that comes along with this New Moon that goes hand in hand with gratitude, acceptance, and faith. The Universe love you and wants you to succeed. She is willing to share with you everything you need to know, you just have to ask her. Have faith in her support. And gratitude for her love.
