For more information on the New Moon in Libra, the current astrology and forecast: read this article.
You can read the horoscopes for both your rising sign and Sun sign. The horoscopes are written for your rising sign, so the horoscopes for the rising sign will probably resonate most. But you can read the one for your Sun sign too, for extra inspiration.
If you don’t know your rising sign and want to figure it out, you’ll need to have your place, date and exact time of birth. To figure out what your rising sign is you go to astro.com. Then go to free horoscopes and to extended chart selection or natal chart / ascendant. Fill in your data. Under extended chart selection: go to options for zodiac houses and under house system choose ‘whole signs’. Then click on ‘show the chart’. Your rising sign (also called ascendant) is the sign that is on the first house. It is denoted as AC. You also see it written in the red lettering under your Sun sign under your personal info.
The horoscopes are listed from Aries – Pisces.
This New Moon pulls your focus to your relationship dynamics, intimacy issues and the yearnings of your heart. Being with another person means being vulnerable. A true and honest connection can only establish itself when two people can really meet each other in rawness and nakedness (this goes for romance, sex, but also true friendship and the strongest business connections). Most of us don’t like to be vulnerable. Especially you Aries don’t like to feel that way: vulnerable. But love and intimacy ask for just that. And love and intimacy is something that we all yearn for, also you Aries. The connections that have something to offer, the connections that enrich our lives, the connections in which we have something offer, are often the connections that scare the sh*t out of us. But those connections are the good ones. When we go deep into those, we find gems.
This New Moon asks for you to get real with yourself on you relationship desires and needs, in romance and/or business. This New Moon asks for you to get real with yourself on the relationships that matter most to you at this moment. Whether these relationships are already established or not. Whether you are single or in a longterm partnership or anything in between. What do you desire? What do you need? What do you contribute? And… what have the important relationships in your life been teaching you, so far? The other is a mirror to the self.
Whatever seed is planted around this New Moon, in six months you’ll get to see what kind of flower it has become. By which I don’t mean you should immediately run to city hall. My advice: pick up a journal and reflect on yourself. The most important work is inner work. The best contribution you can offer to any relationship, is working on your self.
Mercury stationed retrograde on October 13th/14th and will stay retrograde till November 3rd. During Mercury retrograde you’ll be reviewing your collaborations and partnerships. What do you contribute and how do you gain? What are the talents, capabilities and gifts you have to offer? Either at work or in your personal life, you can expect some unexpected changes or insights to enter your life when it comes to your collaborations with others.
These past weeks you’ve been going deep into your psyche and soul. Some Taureans may have been forced to meet inner demons, old wounds and traumas because of life circumstances. Others of you may have felt the need to journal, retreat, meditate or start therapy. Vivid passionate dreams and disturbing nightmares might have been keeping you up at night. In this modern day and age we often forget that mind and body are one. Descartes cut our throats. But is breathing not as much being, as thinking is?
This New Moon reminds you that you are here because your are breathing. I am because I breathe. This New Moon reminds you that healing the psyche and healing the body are two sides of the same coin. You are that coin. Dear Taurus, spend time on making healthy meals for yourself and going on forest walks. You’re allowed to invest in vitamins, bath salts and whatever that makes your body and mind feel good.
This isn’t the best New Moon to start new things. It isn’t the strongest New Moon and She can’t support you that well in any new health intentions you want to set. Maybe you want to start working out (more), start a new diet, start some physical therapy or start running. I’m not saying it will fail. Not everything that starts under this New Moon will fail. Better try than not doing anything at all! This is actually an important time to care for yourself. Truly care for yourself (which also means not pushing yourself too much). Better buy yourself organic spinach than giving up on your health altogether! But there are some bumps in the road. Maybe some injury when you pick up a new sport, something like that. Those supplements that you ordered come in too late or disappear all together. A running nose or allergic reaction to whatever stupid thing. Stuff like that. In the very last days of October, though, you might experience some nice blessings when it comes to the topic of health. The end of October will be big for you, with a Full Moon in your sign.
Mercury stationed retrograde on October 13th/14th and will stay retrograde till November 3rd. During Mercury retrograde you can expect to see some sudden changes in relationship dynamics and/or you’ll receive some unexpected insights regarding your important relationships or unexpected letters / phonecalls. It won’t all be easy. Some insights will take a while to arrive. Some messages will only be received if you can read between the lines. Don’t trust your insights at first glance. In November you might change your mind about the insights you thought you gained in October. It’s ok to change your mind. You’ll have more wisdom at the end of fall season.
This New Moon takes place in the creative studios of your life. In the places where you get messy with paint, make music and write poems. But creativity is so much more than artistic endeavours! Living is a constant stream of creating. You’re always creating. With every step that you take, with every inhalation and exhalation, you’re creating a legacy. You’re leaving footprints on this world. What kind of creative endeavours bring you joy? In what creative pursuit do you experience pleasure?
So often people think that creativity means painting, writing, playing the piano, etc. Creativity is so much more than that. Whether you work as a computer programmer, teacher, salesperson… you’re creating something. How can you be creative in your work? In what way do you want to be creative? What brings you joy? We also create in our private lives and in our spare time. Whether working in the garden our exploring pleasure between the sheets. These are all acts of creation.
So often we judge ourselves for not being creative. Even worse: so often we don’t dare to fully express our creative powers, thinking they are too weird or whatever. So often we hold ourselves back. Which means we also deny ourselves pleasure and joy. This New Moon invites you to reflect on the topic of creativity in your life. Don’t be afraid to open doors into new creative realms. Don’t be afraid to pick up a pencil. You don’t need to be the next Van Gogh, the only thing you ‘need’ to do is to explore what brings you joy and to let your inner child run free.
Mercury stationed retrograde on October 13th/14th and will stay retrograde till November 3rd. During Mercury retrograde it’s time for you to lean on your Gemini skills. Flexibility will get you through it. Don’t be surprised if stuff at work or health issues force you to make changes in your calendar. You will need to do things differently than you expected. Or you will need to do things over or later than planned. It’s not you. You can’t have everything under control. Try to adapt. Keep breathing. Listen to your body and slow down when it tells you to slow down.
This New Moon invites you to reflect on the foundations of your life. The family patterns, the loving childhood memories, the old wounds, the trauma. The brick walls that make your house. The place you call home, or the lack thereof. The loving places that hold you; physical places, or social or spiritual. Many of our foundations were build before us, by our parents, grandparents and even further back. Many of our foundations are cultural. So much of our history, we didn’t choose. History can’t be erased, but foundations aren’t permanent. Foundations can be renovated, they can be build stronger. Keep the stones that you love, that you cherish. Honour them. They are monumental. Renovate the bricks that you don’t like, that don’t support you. They can be healed, made stronger, or sometimes even replaced. What kind of home would be your ideal? What places nurture you? Where do you feel safe and loved? What are the foundations that you want to build your future life on? These are questions to reflect upon with this New Moon.
Mercury stationed retrograde on October 13th/14th and will stay retrograde till November 3rd. Mercury retrograde brings you breaks from your work life that focus on creativity, romance and possible children (if you are a parent). Unexpected events and curious insights regarding romance, flirting and sex may knock on your door. You may pick up an old hobby or start a new totally different creative project. These endeavours might not come without bumps in the road, but a romantic adventure or creative road trip might just be what you need while life is so demanding. Distraction can be healing. Orgasms too. Make time for your pleasures and make time for the things that bring you joy. Last tip: make sure to schedule some downtime in your calendar between the art workshops, dates and work meetings. Downtime is key to get through the challenges. Rest is vital and productive. If you can’t juggle all the balls: this astrologer advices you to take some days off work.
It’s not always easy to express what’s on your mind. This New Moon brings you opportunities to articulate yourself and to practice new ways of speaking your mind. In the past few days and/or upcoming days you might feel challenged to share your opinions, state your desires, communicate your thoughts. Communication isn’t always an easy thing. It’s sometimes pretty damn hard. Finding words can be a challenge. Overcoming fears of your opinions not being worthy enough, overcoming the fear of failing in articulating yourself… Whatever it is, communication isn’t always as straightforward and simple as we think it should be or want it to be. Communication is often difficult for all of us, not just for you.
So, this New Moon challenges you to express yourself. Take on the challenge. Don’t hold yourself back. Work with different tools, be creative, explore different paths and planes of communicating. Pick up a pencil, write a blog, send a voice note, pick up the telepathic phone, whatever might work for you. You can write a letter and choose to post it a month later, or not at all. There are multiple ways that lead to Rome, multiple ways to get the message across. Just don’t swallow your words.
These days aren’t easy. As a fixed fire sign you thrive on fire and warmth. Warmth of the heart, is what I’m speaking of. Warmth seems to be lacking at the moment. The world is quite cold. Not just because it’s fall season. There’s a lot going on, globally, in our communities and in our individual lives. It’s ok to feel sad, about big and little things. It’s also okay to express that some things just suck. And even though this astrologer advices you to speak your mind (honestly, with practice comes perfection and later you’ll thank your younger self) when you feel overwhelmed it’s also ok to retreat. You don’t need to or should express yourself all the time continuously. Sometimes being quiet is the most healing practice there is. Sometimes being alone offers more warmth than being with people. Or sometimes you need to pick your people, cutting communication lines with one while picking up the phone to call another. Sometimes we just need to retreat because we need some time to find our words. It’s all ok. As long as you remember: your thoughts have worth. Your opinions are of value. Your words have a place in this world. This New Moon is here to remember you of just that.
Mercury stationed retrograde on October 13th/14th and will stay retrograde till November 3rd. While part of you wants to focus on the future, you’re being asked to attend to your roots. There’s a desire to grow, or at least to figure out in what direction you want to grow. But, if a tree wants to grow high, it needs strong roots. Mercury retrograde pulls your attention to your roots: home life and possibly family matters. Maybe you’re moving houses, maybe you’re just redecorating. The redecorating can be as much an internal process as an external one (some soul-searching and psychoanalysis isn’t much different than redoing your living room). You might feel the need to figure out things on your own. You might desire freedom that you don’t feel you have, at this moment. Especially family and other important relationships can sometimes feel like chains. It’s always ok to retreat and to schedule in alone time.
What do you value most in life? How do you treat your possessions? What’s your relationship with money? Do you respect what you have? Do you believe that you deserve what you receive? What do you spend your money on? Do you use your money, skills, talents and knowledge to make this world a better place? What you invest in, the things you buy and the people and companies you buy from, shows what you value and what your ethics are. This New Moon is here to ask you the questions above.
Whether this New Moon is about your place in a capitalist society, about the ways you earn your food or about your possessions (both material and your personal skills and talents)… this New Moon is here to make you reflect upon ‘what’s of value’. Only you can decipher that for yourself. Other people’s judgements don’t make your value or worth. Your car or the money in your bankaccount don’t make you a more valuable, beautiful or interesting person. Money is of value because it can support you in living your life; in sustaining your body and providing those things that you need so you can live your life’s purpose. Money however doesn’t equal the worth of a human life. It isn’t always easy to have a healthy relationship with money. It’s often even more difficult to have a healthy relationship with ourselves. Self-doubt, issues that have to do with self-worth, we all experience it.
This New Moon offers you a moment to reflect upon the investments you want to make in your life. What’s truly important to you? Where are you heading? What are your dreams and visions? And do you invest accordingly? Or is it maybe time to change things?
Mercury stationed retrograde on October 13th/14th and will stay retrograde till November 3rd. During Mercury retrograde you will probably get to rearranging your daily schedules and communications. New communications have been or are coming in. You might feel the need to express yourself more than usual, or the opposite: the need to retreat more than usual. You might start some new daily or weekly rituals, or pick up some old ones that you had forgotten about. You might also drop them as fast as you started them. It’s ok. In the upcoming weeks you’ll figure out how you want to arrange your daily life, in support of work and in support of your pleasures. It’s important to carve out time for the things that bring you joy. By trial and error you’ll eventually get to a routine that works for you.
This is your New Moon dear Libra. This New Moon invites you to investigate your relationship with yourself. So often we are focused on others and out there in the world. Especially you Libra, the harmony seeking Venus ruled social being that you are. So, take a moment to pull the focus away from others and into yourself.
Who are you? What are your dreams, visions and hopes? What do you like and what do you love? What do you struggle with? What don’t you like? What dreams do you want to bring into reality? What stuff do you want to eliminate from your life? What talents do you want to strengthen and what lesser qualities do you want to work on?
With the New Moon in your sign, you’re offered the chance to reinvent yourself. However, this New Moon comes in the midst of challenging astrology. So I advice you to just reflect. To take your time to think, feel and dream. You can make moodboards now and execute your plans later. This year is challenging and you might feel a little boxed in and/or slowed down. You can make use of it by consciously retreating and consciously giving yourself time. Soon enough things will change, doors will open again and you’ll be able to go a little faster again and manifest the things that you want to manifest.
Mercury stationed retrograde on October 13th/14th and will stay retrograde till November 3rd. During Mercury retrograde your focus is pulled to your worth. To your sense of self-worth and possibly possessions and bank account. It’s a process of re-evaluation. A process that comes with twists and turns, highs and lows. Some unexpected money might flow in, but also disappear as fast as you received it. You might gain some welcome liberating insights that boost your sense of self-worth. Care for these insights as welcome gifts. But / and: don’t listen to inner voices that make you put yourself down. Don’t doubt your worth. In case such voices pop up: reach out to friends or go high on Venusian self care. Long baths and slik dresses boost self love like no (wo)man can.
Scorpions are known to retreat every now and then. These beautiful animals find safety and healing in dark corners. That doesn’t mean all is comfortable in those corners. At the moment there’s stuff going on behind the scenes in your life. The depths of your emotional life and psyche are asking for your attention. Whether it’s through meditation, dreamwork or therapy; this New Moon invites you to look within, to reflect and to heal.
Those dark corners are often uncomfortable. But again, they are the places where healing takes place. By consciously entering the unconscious, you’re offering yourself a great gift. Working with the shadows will help you to bring in the light. On the great stage of life, the most important work is done behind the scenes. Remember that.
It’s not just the New Moon that asks you to look within. Mercury stationed retrograde on October 13th/14th and will stay retrograde till November 3rd. As Mercury travels backwards through your sign, you will contemplate on yourself. If you’re open to it, you can receive some valuable insights. Those insights will come and go, they will have an element of surprise and will sometimes even be contradictory. When Mercury is retrograde and opposite Uranus, you’ll experience some chaos in your mind and your sense of self might get a little uprooted. Keep breathing. When Mercury eventually transits back into Libra at the end of October, there’s still some soul-searching for you to do. Make notes of your dreams. Allow yourself to wander into the unconscious. Meditate. The questions that pop up in October will be answered in November when Mercury moves through Libra and later returns into Scorpio. In the depths of your unconscious and in your journal writings you’ll find your answers. When the New Moon in Scorpio arrives in a month, life will look a little brighter and you’ll be given the chance to take the first steps reinvent yourself in the way you want to.
This New Moon invites you to honour the people that are of support to you, to honour your friends and the people in the groups you’re part of and share meaningful experiences with. This New Moon invites you to look at your dreams, your hopes, your aspirations for the future. Specifically the New Moon invites you to look at the people that will help to get you there. So, big question: what kind of life do you want to build for yourself and with who do you want to build that life and who are the people that actually support you in building that life? Sometimes we’re hanging around in the wrong crowd. Sometimes we forget to celebrate the people that bring us the most luck and love. This New Moon reminds you to consciously choose with who you want to spend your time. This New Moon advices you to not sacrifice working on your dreams and hopes because today’s pleasures are more tempting.
Furthermore, what do you give back in your communities and to your friends? Sometimes we don’t really know how to cheer ourselves up when we’re feeling down. Maybe, however, we are able to cheer up someone else. In modern societies there’s a tendency, for all of us, to struggle alone. Pain becomes lighter when we share it. Laughter exponentially grows when we partake in it together.
Mercury stationed retrograde on October 13th/14th and will stay retrograde till November 3rd. Be mindful of self-criticism while Mercury is retrograde. Self-sabotaging thoughts are lurking in the depths of the psyche. We all have habits that stand in our way. We all can be our own worst enemies sometimes. Be mindful to not fall into old traps. Focus on compassion in the month of October. Practice loving-kindness meditation. Create warm and loving atmospheres by burning candles and incense. When self-love practices aren’t sufficient, make sure to reach out to others. Sometimes alone time is the best gift we can gift ourselves. Sometimes alone time can aggravate negative spirals of self undoing. You know yourself best. Be honest with yourself. Reach out to friends when it’s in your best interest. Turn down party invitations when that’s in your best interest.
What’s the career that you deeply and maybe secretly desire? Do you know what it is? Do you know what makes your heart beat faster? Or are you still figuring it out? Either way, this New Moon invites you to look at your career. Even though the circumstances in the heavens above, and here on earth below, are a little challenging. Even though it’s not the greatest time to start new endeavours and make big changes. You can dream about the changes that you want to make. You can think, reflect and plan.
Right now things in the world are a little stuck. You yourself might feel stuck, dragged down and burned out. It won’t stay like this forever. Things will start to change for the better. Just keep going a little longer. Capricorns are known to climb mountains in tough circumstances. These days you’re just going a little slower than usual. That’s okay. Circumstances will change. The dry cold air will become warm and kind again. Just keep going and pause and rest when you need to.
Before you know it you’ll regain the energy and space to reinvent your career the way you want it to. Right now circumstances or lack of energy may be holding you back. But soon enough you’re the only one who can hold yourself back. So often we do not pursue dreams out of fear for failure. However, if you never try… it will never become reality. Take your dreams seriously. And if you don’t yet know exactly what you’re dreaming of. Take the time to make your unconscious dreams conscious. Reflect, think, envision. You’re worth that investment in yourself.
Mercury stationed retrograde on October 13th/14th and will stay retrograde till November 3rd. While Mercury is retrograde you’re reviewing your community life and friendships. You might receive surprising postcards or get back in touch with an old friend. Equally possible you’ll feel the need to retreat more than you usually do. Not all your interactions with the people around you will be pleasant. This Mercury retrograde is a chaotic mix of Martian pain and surprising supportive letters. This Mercury retrograde might bring some interesting experiences that will gift you a high needed dose of love. Again, it’s a mixed bag for you dear Capricorn. It’ll be different for all of you. You’ll have to see whatever treats the universe has in store for you.
Dear Water Bearer, this New Moon pulls your focus to your longterm plans and future dreams. Use these days to connect with or recommit to your spiritual practices and religious or philosophical studies. Whatever daily rituals that you can practice that make you feel grounded, they will support you in experiencing and finding purpose and meaning in life. While staying grounded you can explore great heights and foreign realms.
What new worlds do you want to discover? From academic studies to foreign countries, the world is at your feet! Travels with the mind or travels with the body; both are worthwhile pilgrimages. However, don’t book your plain ticket just yet. What a second before paying the tuition. Give yourself time to figure out in what direction you want to go. Be sure before you put in the deposit. This New Moon is surrounded with confusion astrology. This New Moon however does have the capability to push you in a new direction; if that’s needed for you. In a direction that suits you. In case you are at crossroads, don’t be too hasty in deciding which way to go. Pause, take rest, explore the crossroad, and decide when your gut is sure about it. There’s no hurry. The future isn’t clear yet. The future is always uncertain anyway. But this New Moon might bring you the visions your are waiting for, or at least some hints.
Mercury stationed retrograde on October 13th/14th and will stay retrograde till November 3rd. While Mercury is retrograde you’ll be reflecting on your career and professional roles. Some unexpected changes or events are about to knock on your door, bringing challenges and/or liberating experiences into your career. You’ll be asked to review your professional life and goals. There might be some chaos at work. Good chance you’ll need to do somethings over, because not everything will go right at the first attempt. Three is a charm! Be patient and go with the flow. Chaos can be experienced both as disrupting and exciting. Give yourself time to find the answers on the career questions that will pop up. Good chance you’ll find your answers later in fall.
This New Moon wants you to reflect on what you give and what you take. What do you share? What can you give to others? What do you love to share? With who do you like to collaborate and partnerup? What do you receive? What do you allow yourself to receive and what not? What do you take too much of or too little? What do you gain and what do you lose? What relationship dynamics do you want to create? In business partnerships, friendships or romantic relationships. What relationships and collaborations raise your self worth? These are questions to reflect upon with this New Moon.
With this New Moon you’re supported in focusing on your most important collaborations and partnerships. Invest in those. Maybe invest a little less in those that drain your energy or sense of self worth. It’s okay to say no to some people. Say wholeheartedly yes to those that make you smile and those that make you feel confident. Say thanks to the people that support you in making your dreams come true. Say no thanks to those that hold you back in life.
Mercury stationed retrograde on October 13th/14th and will stay retrograde till November 3rd. While Mercury is retrograde you’ll reflect on your longterm plans and future. Some unexpected insights or events might be on their way, very subtly or maybe majorly impacting your journey into the future. Give things time. There’s no rush. In case you’re in college, into some kind of studies or course, or working on a research or writing project, expect some delays or twits and turns to challenge you. While Mercury is retrograde you might need to do things over or change some things up in case you have an academic career.
