October New Moon 2021
For All Zodiac Signs 🌟
The New Moon peaks on Wednesday, October 6, 2021, in the Sign of Libra. Usually, it’s peaceful lighter feeling energy, but there are some seriously disruptive influences underway as well. This week can be challenging but a good time to go within and seek balance.
The Libra New Moon aligns with passionate Mars. So the spiritual meaning of the New Moon relates to energy, passion, and initiative, which can be useful. We’re feeling braver and aggressive, so we may need to take a step back. This energy demands we take action, so practice things like meditation or journal writing, but physical exercise of any kind will be more helpful. Try not to say or do things to provoke anger in others.
The October New Moon helps us balance our intimate relationships. And with the Moon conjunct Mars, we intend to create harmony and equality. The Moon is also quincunx independent thinking Uranus, meaning it’s a time to make adjustments, and not just mentally. This energy helps us shift our perspective and change our opinions and behaviors. It’s trying to show us there’s a better way to relate with others and ourselves.
The New Moon is a great time to meditate with the Cosmos and Set Intentions. But remember, last month, we connected to the New Moon during the Autumn Equinox, so whatever energies we set in motion at that time are now moving forward. It’s a bit of a roller-coaster ride, and overreacting to changes can cause problems. Stay flexible.
These tense energies also draw out our deeper personal desires, and this can result in anger. Debates can turn into arguments that erupt suddenly without little to no warning! With Venus (love & relationships) tensely connecting to Mars (passion & anger) and Pluto (transformation & rage) turning direct from Retrograde all at the same time, rage or violence can be the worst side effects. So please be extra careful about who you combat. Choose your battles wisely if you get the chance.
The October New Moon also makes a difficult aspect to erratic Uranus, which can cause restlessness. There can be impatience, radical change, and rebellion. And with the Moon and fiery Mars connecting to other Stars that are associated with aggression and breakdowns, revenge, unfortunately, can be an issue.
The worst-case scenario is the potential for anger to turn into violence, as physical aggression can be a reality. And we can see protests, rebellion, attacks, and war-like behavior!
And other asteroids are aligning with this New Moon energy that leads to more unrest and Karmic situations. Any act of violence or revenge will lead to quick reactions and harsh judgments.
The New Moon will be an interesting one as it conjuncts Mars, which normally wouldn’t be a big deal, and its influence can give us the courage we need to go after our goals and get things done. However, the difficult part is its connection to Uranus.
It’s best to be aware and dig into activities that are more positive. You have an opportunity to transform these highly charged cosmic energies into something more productive and constructive, especially through physical activities. Using self-control and awareness, we can turn our raw primal desires into passion and romance with the Sun, Moon, and Mercury in the sign of Libra.
Pluto turns direct from Retrograde just hours after the New Moon peaks. Pluto is the planet of endings, rebirth, and transformation and is associated with reincarnation. This cycle has us following the call of our souls and exploring our deeper emotions. All the personal and shadow work we have done is worth it, especially if you discovered more of your inner power while Pluto has been Retrograde.
Also, Saturn, the planet of Karma, turns direct from its Retrograde cycle just four days after the New Moon on October 10. Retaliation may be swift and final, ending the cycle of violence, which is helpful. Old learned behaviors, habits, and beliefs can be let go of since we are looking for new ways to make progress. New Moon’s are always good for creating new beginnings. But this New Moon demands we be more cautious before jumping into something unknown. Baby steps!
The influence of the October New Moon lasts for four weeks up to the November New Moon. The best time for starting new projects is during the waxing phase of the Moon, from October 6 up to the October 20 Full Moon.
