New moon in Libra October 2021


The new moon in Libra occurs on October 6, 2021 at 12:05 pm (BST) at 13 ° Li24 ′.

As the ruling planet of Libra, Venus, makes its way through Scorpio and against the anaretic Sedna at the level of the crying sister, this new moon feels complex and there is an atmosphere of discomfort. Pluto is also stationary and is about to move into direct motion. It increases the intensity, especially since it is also about to complete the last square on Eris, exactly on October 9th. Mercury retrograde in Libra is largely conjunct the new moon, suggesting that we may need to go past old ground before reaching an agreement, beginning a new relationship or making an important decision.

The Moon and Sun are also closely related to Mars, and all are Quincunx Uranus. We have an electrical fear that pumps adrenaline through our veins. There is an urge to take action, to put things right, to seek justice, but we must be wary of impulsiveness. Uranus can also evoke a sense of awakening, a sudden flash of higher understanding. Even so, we have to wait for the wheels to turn or for more information to come before we can recharge. Think – “What is my goal here? What is my motivation? The Pluto stationing also tells us to loosen up the reins and stop controlling everything. Change is taking place. We don’t have to hurry.

In Libra we meet “the other” – whether a romantic partner, business customer or open enemy. In the other we see aspects of ourselves that have been denied – oh I don’t like her, she is so judgmental! I don’t like him, he’s so vulgar! Although we all have our (Venusian) likes and dislikes, strong reactions tend to say more about us than the other person. Opposition of the Moon, Sun, and Mars to Chiron underscores that we might be surprised if we don’t pay attention to what triggers us. Look out for red flags. The atmosphere is super sensitive and it’s easy to hurt each other’s feelings.

The Sabian symbol of this lunation is: –

In the heat of the noon hour, a man is taking a siesta

First, this symbol reminds us that when things get hot, sometimes the best action is no action! Maybe we need to take a break, get out, cool off! Alternatively, we might get caught napping, especially when we should try harder. Knowing when to move forward and when to retreat are an integral part of this picture, especially when Mars is involved.

In general, at Libra, we learn how to interact with other people by learning about ourselves. The more we are aware of our inner selves, the easier our relationships will function. At Libra we learn to compromise, negotiate and look for win-win solutions. This symbol is emphatically committed to equality, fairness and justice for all. With this lunation, it is time to find your center and see if you are being fair to yourself. Switch on, switch on, reconnect. Focus on calm and healing. When we have to assert ourselves to bring the scales back into balance, the energy is available to us. A firm but gentle hand is the best way forward.
