New Moon in Libra -October 6, 2021
On October 6th, the month starts off strong with the New Moon in Libra. New Moons are a powerful time for new beginnings, setting intentions, and personal breakthroughs. Along with the Moon, planets Mercury, Mars, and the Sun are all currently in Libra. This is referred to as a Stellium in astrology terms. This New Moon in Libra focuses on partnerships, finances, and bringing balance into your life.
Planet Mercury is currently Retrograde in Libra. Mercury is the planet of communication, technology, and travel. It would be wise to use caution and take your time making any major changes or important choices. It may be difficult to stay calm and composed due to Mars's influence on the Moon. Ambition, courage, and the urge to take initiative can make you feel restless or impatient. This energy can be used productively by applying it toward a physical activity, a passion project, or building self-confidence!
Libra has a natural ability for creating peace and harmony where there is none. This can lead to over-compromising or people-pleasing to avoid confrontation. There may be an opportunity to stand up for yourself or for something important to you. Libra reminds you that in order to achieve balance, you must be sure that you aren't giving away too much of your power. Significant changes that begin to unfold now will help you commit to your personal goals. The New Moon in Libra is a chance to restore balance and recognize the value within yourself and in your relationships.
