Happy New Moon in Libra!
The moon joins the sun in Libra on the 28th of September. We are officially in Libra season!
This new moon in Libra brings in a breath of fresh air and a sense of harmony to our relationships while offering us opportunity to reconnect in new ways.
This month holds a lot of other aspects that will cause some transformation within yourself and your personal relationships that can last into 2020.
This is a very important month for making progress and transformation in 2020. Luckily, Saturn the planet of Karma and lessons went direct last week, which is helping us see our path with a bit more clarity.
Each New Moon, using our planners and our Spirit de la Lune deck, we create the Moonthly energy reading for the coming month ahead.
Grab some warm cider and scroll on to see what this new moonth holds.
New Moon in Libra
This New Moon in Libra brings in the need for peace and harmony. There is a need for balance to be restored in your life right now. Find your inner peace this week, because our relationships and connections with others will be an important lesson this month.
You might feel called towards restoring balance and finding a sense of harmony in your relationships and your personal lives… This means you might feel more apt to just keeping the peace when it comes to your relationships and sharing your heart. You might feel it’s best to play nice and not disrupt the peace at this time. This might be harder than it seems… and if that’s the case, it might be a situation where you need to share your truth!
Find balance in yourself first when it comes to interacting with others and sharing your truth. Personal relationships might become a major focus this month. We might feel pulled towards restoring and reconnecting around this time.
A new moon in Libra is a time to see things in a more diplomatic way. Consider and view all perspectives and weigh all options before making any decisions. Libra is a time when decision making can be difficult, but observing is important. The Moon is in Libra for a only a few days, so it might be best to put off any big decision making until a later time. Instead gather the evidence and weigh your decisions.
There is also a focus on cultural concerns and social justice and a need to restore harmony within the world. Often times it feels like there is nothing we can do to help the greater good, despite our best intentions. This new moon might have you feeling this way in a heightened way.
As above, So below. This New Moon in Libra asks us to restore our own sense of inner peace and balance. Remember that everything is connected when you heal yourself, you heal the world around you.
Mercury enters Scorpio on October 3rd which will helps you observe your own emotions, desires and relationships in a new way. When the planet of communication is in Scorpio, we feel words on a deeper level as our emotions too are deepened. It’s important to speak your truth… but it’s also important that your truth is in alignment with your heart! Be careful to not lash out or have knee jerk reactions towards others at this time.
Pluto goes direct on the 3rd of October which will help us set in stone the transformation and inner work we have been doing. Over the last 5 months or so, we have been asked to make huge changes within. Pluto is now going direct and this will help us fully integrate those lessons to make lasting change.
Mars enters Libra on the 4th of October which brings an even greater focus to our relationships and partnerships this week. There is a sense of wanting harmony, but an urgency behind it that you need to be aware of. Mars and Libra hold very opposing energy. Try to be patient and diplomatic when it comes to conflict.
There is a lot of focus on our personal lives and relationships this week and you might feel energy from early September come up again around this time. Look at this like a test that you’ve been preparing for all year. There may have been something you tried to put an end to early September that might rise up again around this time. You will need to stick to the boundaries you set in order to know these changes have been lasting.
Relationships and connections to others will be a big deal this week. Remember to focus on what connects you rather than what divides you while the moon and Sun are both in Libra.
The card pulled for this week is Waxing Gibbous, Connect. For a week that is so focused on establishing peace and balance in our relationships, it’s no surprise this card would come up! It’s important to seek connection right now and notice where your connections are. Be sure that the connections you are sending out aren’t draining energy from you! If you are finding that others in your social circle or personal relationships aren’t striving for connection and are instead putting up resistance, it might be time to walk away for now. If you have been shutting out others or resisting connection, now is the time to soften your heart and welcome it. The astrology this week brings our relationships into focus so that we can strengthen our connection with them, ourselves and Spirit.
First Quarter Moon on October 5th
The moon turns to first quarter on the 5th of October in the sign of Capricorn. The first quarter moon in Capricorn is a time of action and discipline. It’s important that you keep to your schedule this week, and the waxing moon in Capricorn the Achiever can make it easy and enjoyable.
The first quarter realm represents fire, while Capricorn holds energy of the Earth. We can get a lot done with this kind of energy this week! Capricorn drives us to want to see tangible results when it comes to matters of the home, work and our personal goals. Stay disciplined this week as the moon shifts into Aquarius; which will give us a slightly less disciplined mindset when it comes to matters that might seem mundane or boring.
Venus enters Scorpio on October 8th, which tends to give off an “all or nothing” approach in relationships… We tend to see things in more black and white with Scorpio. With all of the other aspects going on in our relationships, this one can cause heightened emotions and passions within relationships to arise. This could be jealousy or other negative emotions that have been hidden below the surface to come up.
The card pulled for this week is Waning Crescent, Be. You might be feeling low on energy in some way or another this week. It’s important to not force anything right now. Don’t make any big decisions if you don’t have to, instead simply observe your situation. Ground yourself and find your center. There might be a situation this week where you will need to decide to not engage and simply let it “be.” You may have to accept things the way they are and remember that with each ending you have opportunity for rebirth. Remember to give thanks and play witness this week. Old feelings might be surfacing in order to be observed and healed. Forgive yourself and others, thank them, and love them and release the emotions that no longer serve you.
Full Blood Moon in Aries
The Full Blood Moon takes place on the 13th of October in the sign of Aries. We are now in the darker seasons of the year. Energy turns inward and ebbing is necessary right now. The harvest is now withering, but new seeds can be found for the new year ahead.
This Full Blood Moon makes it apparent, the old must die in order to sustain new life.
There might be a sense of uncertainty and urgency around this full moon for many people. Aries wants to see action, and rush to the ending so we can start something new. Try to not rush yourself or others. Slow down so that you can make clear decisive actions at a comfortable pace.
Another sense of uncertainty may be surrounding the Full Moon in Aries square Pluto .
This aspect shines light on hidden and destructive behavior and habits. Feelings, secrets or other wounds we felt were buried might rise up. Intense emotions and intense reactions can take place. Be careful to not let any impulsive or intense reaction lead you towards anything destructive that might cause crisis in your life.
There is a sense of exposing secrets, old wounds and other destructive behavior coming to the surface to be exposed. Fears and phobias as well as racism and sexism may come up in the media. There is a lot of emotional manipulation and massive power struggles happening world wide. This is all slowly being exposed to the world.
This is a week when festering wounds might be exposed. This can also be apparent in your interpersonal relationships! Be aware of how this might be happening in your personal life and try to put an end to it if you can. Don’t allow jealousy, guilt tripping, manipulation or any kind of emotional or mental abuse happen. It’s time to start calling out the behavior that needs to end and be healed.
The Full Blood Moon in October brings up some challenges because of the Moon Square Pluto aspect, but it can also be a positive Full Moon for many! The trine to Jupiter makes this an abundant and fortunate full moon for many who have been putting in the work to better themselves.
Crisis within our relationships are possible… but there are more opportunities to reconnect and resolve problems once and for all. We are seeing improvement happening, but we need to accept that it might be gradual. After this full moon passes you might notice your relationships will feel a bit less strained.
The card pulled for this week is Waning Crescent, Boundaries. Don’t let anyone cross your boundaries this week. Strong boundaries are important and if you haven’t already set boundaries, this week is a good time to do so. Boundaries are not walls around our hearts, they are the doors that let some in, and keep others out. You may have felt called to set clear boundaries over this summer, and this Full Moon might cause some situation to arise that might test these boundaries. Be clear and stand up for yourself first. You will soon find that boundaries will surprisingly give you a greater sense of freedom!
Last Quarter Moon on the 27th
The moon begins to wane after the full moon and we begin to feel our own energy wane again too. The sign of Leo helps us speak our truth to our loved ones in a way that helps both parties feel understood and seen.
The chaos in our personal relationships is beginning to lift this week. As clarity returns, we are able to see the steps we want to take. This last quarter moon in Leo helps us know what we want so that we can start to see the opportunities. If you don’t know what you want, you won’t know what to look for!
On the 23rd of October, the Sun moves into Scorpio. Scorpio is ruled by Pluto, the planet of death and transformation. The months ahead call for a period of self-transformation. We are all here to experience the transformation and evolution of self. The sun in Scorpio helps shine light on the areas in our lives that we might need to focus on.
The card pulled for this week is waxing Crescent, Awareness. As the moon turns once again to new and the veil between realms gets thinner and thinner you might feel your awareness of the spirit realm heightened more and more. Your sensitivity is increasing. Remain flexible and aware of your own personally energy flow and follow your intuition before making any decisions. Focus on the bigger picture and learn from your past. You are being shown ways to transform yourself to better align with your highest self. Have faith that you can move forward with more wisdom and understanding than ever before.
