We’re in the dark of the Moon this week, so don’t do anything, just rest. The Moon is waning until Friday, October 16th, when we have a New Moon in Libra.
Libra is ruled by the planet Venus, which is currently in an uncomfortable transit through Virgo. Venus is in her “fall” in Virgo, meaning her energies are bottled up or limited in expression. This causes tension, over analysis and controlling behavior in relationships. Try and keep communications open and clear with partners (of all kinds) this week.
Currently, Mercury is at a dead stop in the sky, and will turn retrograde (go backwards) on Tuesday. This event adds deep reflection to the already quiet nature of the dark moon. Over the next three weeks, Mercury will retrace it’s steps and go over ground we’ve already covered, triggering a regeneration in our thinking as it travels the corridors of Scorpio.
Mars retrograde, over in Aries, is still leading us through the underworld until November 13th. Our energy is directed inward, and we look at ourselves rather than taking action on people or situations around us. We reassess our ambitions while Mars is retrograde, and revaluate our life path and direction. It is a time to think about our actions, and whether they are aligned with the life and world we want to create.
What kind of life do you want to have, and are your current actions in alignment with creating it? If not, perhaps it’s time to make some changes.
Are your goals in alignment with your true and highest self?
Your energy and drive are valuable; is it worth what you’re spending our time on?
Monday, October 12th: Moon VOC in Leo ALL DAY! Try not to make big decisions or have important conversations, just spend your energy on being wildly romantic or creative 🙂 Also spending time with children or animals is productive.
Tuesday, October 13th: Moon in Virgo. Mercury Retrograde at 6:05pm Pacific. Ground through nurturing your needs and organizing your home life. Good day for releasing, purging and breaking bad habits. With Mercury stationing, watch out for crazy drivers.
Wednesday, October14th: Moon in Virgo, going VOC at 3:47pm Pacific. Chatty. Good day for talking, sociability and online activities. Issues could arise around understanding, truth, and honesty, as well as challenges with business. Focus on the goal.
Thursday, October 15th: Moon in Libra, and we are in the orb of the New Moon tomorrow. Balance, partnerships, justice and peace. Whatever began in April will come to a major fruition in the next two weeks!
Friday, October 16th: New Moon in Libra at 12:31pm Pacific. Moon goes void of course at 3:30pm for the rest of the day. Plans could change, best to go with the flow. If you need to have meetings or work through agreements, do it in the morning. Remember to focus on balance and win-win resolutions. Excellent date night.
Saturday, October 17th: Moon in Scorpio, Do Magick! We enter through another portal on our way to Halloween and deep Fall. It is the time when the veil between the worlds is thin, and we can see spirits. Expect occult experiences and deep conversations with people. With Mars still retrograde, reflect on passions and think about what corner of your life needs action.
