This week we have a New Moon in Libra on October 6 at 7:05 am EST (find your time here).
This lunar cycle, our New Moon is on October 6 at 7:05 am EST.
In astrology, the New Moon is a time of new beginnings and wiping the slate clean. It's when you set your intention for the lunar cycle ahead and call into your life what you want - that could be a physical, tangible thing or something like more love, a joyful daily routine, or a deeper connection to your intuition.
The October New Moon is in Libra - the peacemaker sign that wants everyone to be on the same page. But it's working with Mars, which brings fire, energy, and even aggression to the table, and also dealing with Pluto which turns direct the same day.
Typically a Libra Moon urges us towards conversation and compromise to get our message across to others. But Mars and Pluto prefer blunt force and raised voices, so we'll have to be mindful to rise above the urges Mars triggers in us and do our best to stay objective and see the bigger picture.
We may have to work and really dig around in our toolbox to find a way to work with someone else at this time - but it can be done. We also may encounter some unexpected news or a surprise as Uranus is not quite making a quincunx to the Moon, Sun, and Mars.
The same planets are also opposite Chiron, thewounded healer asteroid, perhaps bringing up someold wounds to the surface so they can be dealtwith (and perhaps transformed) once and for all.
