The October New Moon falls on the 6th of the month at 13°24′ of air sign Libra. During a new moon, we tend to look for new opportunities to express our ideas and thoughts and for this reason it is usually a great time for starting new projects. Libra is the sign connected to diplomacy and balance with a strong sense of fairness.
At the time of this new moon, there isn’t much happening in the fire element, suggesting that collectively, we may find it more challenging to get motivated to achieve any goals or objectives we may have. In addition, any significant changes that occur around this time may overwhelm many. However, since Mercury is still in the retrograde motion, at this time, this isn’t a great time for making major life changes, but instead focusing on making minor life improvements that could benefit you in the long term. On the other hand, with a strong air element, we gain the ability to see life from a more intellectual perspective. Our rational minds outweigh our emotional side. Here again, a sense of fairness is highlighted.
When the Moon travels through cardinal sign Libra, there is a greater need for harmony and peace. Throughout this time, primary relationships play a crucial role in our lives, governing our feelings and desires. We are often prompted to reassess our priorities and work towards finding a balance between thoughtful understanding and assertiveness.
