October 6, 2021 Libra New Moon Astrology Forecast

This Libra New Moon is going to kick off new spiritual meanings and opportunities on October 6 – and make available to us new energies to align with. There will passionate and igniting energies, and some may feel this as anger. There may be restlessness and and a radical shift in perspective that has us re-examining what karma means – and what we’ve done to incur good or bad karma. To complicate things, Uranus will aspect this moon, to agitate us further. Small bodies in the heavens such as asteroids will stir up additional conflicts. Be aware of yourself and don’t take arguments too far! Tone down your urge to be combative.

Mars will give you an extra push to get projects done, staying in Libra until October 30th, first, even while the sun will be departing from Libra energies on October 22. It will be an excellent time to redecorate, re-design, re-imagine life by pulling on those Libra talents that appreciate the artistic, and mingle with the crowd – maybe even plan now for your Halloween party!

All these aspects with Uranus and Mars may not be doing much for your work-life balance, but the New Moon is going to help you reset and rethink your boundaries. All that Libra energy is there to be tapped into doing what Libra does best, which is strike the harmonic balance in relationship. This is an excellent time to commit to personal goals and catch up with friends. Check in with your network, set aside some special time to renew those ties.

All these planets and asteroid converging in Libra help create an element of air into our reality. This element dominates our daily life and will be there to help us tap into inspiration and discover new mindsets. The wind of change follows these aspects, opening our minds and lives to new possibilities.

As the ruler of Libra, Venus will guide you through your familiar house full of commitment, ties and close personal relationships. As the ruling planet and ruler of Libra’s New Moon, Venus moves into Scorpio, turning watery, dark and deep for the autumn season.  Venus brings the right astrological weather for intimate bonds to grow stronger and more intense.

On the same day as the New Moon in Libra, Pluto changes from direct to retrograde in April. The day on which the planets are directly stationed is considered a day of strength, and it coincides with the theme of the new moon, which we will sit up and take notice. 

We will feel Pluto’s deep and powerful activating force, so this New Moon seems to be a good opportunity to reflect on the transformation in one’s life, the changes of the year, and what we have sown and reaped in the harvest season. Especially now, in these autumnal days and nights when the veil between worlds becomes thin.

Libra Full Moon of 4-11-2017

4-11-2017 Full Moon

The emerging theme of this moon is how an abundance of relationships moves into a process of elimination, as the full moon in Libra at 21 degrees, moves into Scorpio hours later at 6:42 pm, EST.

This Libra moon retreats from a conjunction with Jupiter Rx at 17 degrees of Libra, while this moon also squares Pluto in Capricorn at 19 degrees. We are blessed with sociability but the Pluto square overshadows our connections with the flavors of Scorpionic intensity, particularly with moon’s looming passage into Scorpio. Friendships have their good times, their bright, happy moments in which we perceive people who make us feel good as angels — yet, as we move past the superficiality of relationships and delve deeper, our relationships maturing in the process, we can often discover our angels have their dark sides, and at our worst, find we are surrounded by pernicious demons instead.

Of course, those are very stark, binary terms to describe the human experience of friends and the relationships they provide — but this is often how we perceive things in relationship to the self. What does not please us is evil, what supports our self-esteem is instantly good. It takes strength, time, and tempering of the soul to recognize and forgive both others and ourselves when our ideals are not met. The person who matures in a truly soulful way, is not a person who insists on looking at their friends with rose colored glasses, but who can identify what kind of relationships they can live with, and what kind they can live without, and can do so without the need to demonize or idolize those that rise or fall short. Pluto speaks of transformation — and we are always in an act of transformation, for if we do not, we are eternally stuck in the process of elimination. As we transform, the kind of relationships we choose — or fail to choose — will transform along side us.

Transforming relationships can sometimes reveal more than we expected, with Uranus in Aries opposite this Jupiter and Moon in Libra. Perhaps we shock our friends by not adhereing to the role they assigned to us — perhaps our friendships are hiding secret desires (Venus Rx) or perhaps we become too attached to how good our friends make us feel, distracting us from our troubles and inviting us to try to coerce or control (Pluto/Moon square) the good times that are no longer there. The moon will invite emotional attachments to rise to the surface.

These relationship dynamics, how we come together, fall apart, navigate and maintain, is all under the domain of Libra, Venus in her current retrograde, and 7th house matters. Friends and connections belong under the scope of the 11th house, of Aquarius and Uranus — expect these subjects to be key features under this moon. Uranus at 24 degrees of Aries, also squares the Libra moon.

Saturn’s gravity will help to reign in Jupiter’s over the top expansion, providing a soft anchor. Venus, even though in retrograde, is in Pisces and will be better positioned for compassionate love than she was in masculine Aries. Saturn’s trines underlies the current, more prominent features of this chart, trining the Sun in Aries, Uranus in Aries, and Mercury in Aries, as well as the North Node at 0 degrees of Virgo — like the kind hand of a father, directing the child (Aries) back to a rational path with hard work, foundations, and clear sight.
