New Moon in Libra is the time to set intentions around ‘union’, highlighting where you want to partner in life be it business, friendship or romantic.
It also triggers the ongoing Uranus square to Pluto, so it’s packing extra emo kick. Think ‘wake up’ call to the areas of life that are ready (or not so ready) to transform.
See the October Tip o’ the Month for more insights on this. You’ll want to be taking note of your ‘Cardinal’ houses! Tips on how over at GVA, or ask in the comments if you need help.
Note that in Astrology, the elements (Fire, Earth, Air or Water) of the signs are divided into ‘decanates’, or divisions of 10. In this method, each sign is divided into three lots of 10 degrees (0 – 10, 10 – 20, 20 – 30). The first taking on the nature of the sign itself ( ). The second decan takes on qualities of the next sign in its element (in this case, AIR) ( ) and the third taking on the subsequent sign of its element ( ).
Think of the planetary ruler of the sign of each new decan. They add their own spark of energy to the mix. For the New Moon at 11 degrees 56′ Libra, it falls in the 2nd, or Aquarius, decanate, adding to Libra-Venus, the additional energy of Saturn/Uranus-Aquarius.
10 to 19′ 59 Libra: – This decan enhances the love of freedom, revolution and experimentation. Can be a rebel yet hates to upset the apple cart. Quite a dynamic! Mind powerful and fixed. More stubborn; less vacillating . Unusual art. The shape is triangular.

Horoscopes for the New Moon
ARIES: The New Moon in your house of personal one-to-one relationships, business or pleasure, has a wild, adventurous, breakout feel! You are letting go of anything that smacks of ‘toleration’ and getting on with life. Bold, dynamic and ready to roar! Get thee to the high road!
TAURUS: Take this mega-mojo energy and pour it into your health and well-being. Set new gym goals, start the best ever nutritional program and light a fire under all your beliefs about what you can and can not achieve. Drop the ones that don’t support; exalt the ones that do!
GEMINI: This is all about co-creation, brainstorming, mind-melds and magic Muse conjuring. There is a project at hand that benefits from partnership. All you have to do is reach out. If at first no one steps up, partner with your Muse, your ever present creative spirit who is waiting to be invited in!
CANCER: If there is one place to ‘get yourself correct’ this month it is in the home and those you live with. Think external – repairs, Feng Shui, de-clutter, collaborative sanctuary creation mode. Internally – emotional peace and psychological stability with connections. One supports the other. Get to it!
LEO: Your New Moon is in the house of communications, supporting rash and honest ‘clearing of the air’ statements. This gets you and all your relationships on track, up to date and free of constraint. No more hedging the difficult ‘issues’. Let it out. Purge. Connect! Do it!
VIRGO: This New Moon is all about developing talents and resources that will support you. No going it alone! There is someone out there who is ready to collaborate, supporting your in your creative genius. Connect with two goals in mind – creative self-expression and financial abundance. Nice.
LIBRA: This is YOUR New Moon and with it comes the creation of balance between what you experience as Self and what you perceive as Other. No more all or nothing when it comes to partnerships and unions. Your primary relationship is with you. Nurture that AND explore the new connections!
SCORPIO: This is you ‘shadow’ New Moon, a time where you chill, meditate, immerse in beauty and form connections to your inner world. (‘Imaginary’ friends can be most beneficial right now!) Call on your angels, conjure your ‘Deamon‘ and raise your phantom! Explore behind the veil!
SAGITTARIUS: The ‘friendship’ New Moon is upon you! Get out of any routine, or spiral trajectory, and find, honor and appreciate the bejazza out of your friends. Celebrate the people in your life who vibe like you, understand your quirks and love all the crazy things you do. Connect. Connect. Connect!
CAPRICORN: Time to buff up your public identity and connections to the collective! A glorious New Moon of empowerment, potential and ultra-savvy leadership awaits. It’s not about having to be perfect. It’s about having a generous heart, caring about your collective and participating with integrity.
AQUARIUS: You will LOVE this as long as you have enough ‘space’ around you, which is really a state of mind. Let go of all the ‘facts’ and things you know ‘for sure’. It’s time to be mind blown by the realm of infinite possibilities. As you travel (metaphoric or real), you meet friends along the way!
PISCES: The New Moon in Libra is an arrow pointing towards intimacy, connection and transformation through love. All you have to do is show up. In your willingness to become more than you already are, surrender to the call of the wild, the unknown, the unknowable. Merge!
