Weekly Horoscopes for each Sign are listed below after the overview:
|New Moon in Libra. The scales symbolize balance, |
and the sword symbolizes truth and intelligence.
Right before this New Moon we have a powerful connection when Jupiter is in trine with Pluto on Sunday, October 11. Read more about what's been leading up to this New Moon in last week's astrology horoscopes here.
This New Moon is also squaring Pluto and opposing Uranus in Aries so there could certainly be tension in relationships that can spur us to turn over a new leaf. Issues that are likely to come up with this New Moon are those of authority, truth, trust, honesty, power games in all types of relationships, money and the need for personal freedom.
But, also with Uranus retrograde in Aries opposing this New Moon, there’s simply a lot of people who are trying to find their own identity and to honor how they live and relate to others. Relationships are the focal point that get us to wake up and make new decisions in how we live our lives.
Pluto in Capricorn now squaring this New Moon in Libra speaks to authority figures, tradition and established rules in society. Challenges to how things have been and the need to change the status quo liven up with this New Moon in Libra. We get fresh motivation that makes sense. To make the world a more beautiful, harmonious place means better choices need to be made.
If you want to make a change and live more authentically true to yourself, you’re going to have to be the one to make the effort to create that change you want. Don’t expect others to do it for you. This is not a passive, lazy, “hand it to me on a silver platter” New Moon. Those who do generally have a sense of entitlement and expect everything to fall in their laps just the way they want it, will likely get a wake up call. Life can not be one sided. The New Moon in Libra requires that we find harmony by balancing give and take.
Mustering your own strength and willpower to create a more balanced life for yourself that really does align with your goals requires you to put on your thinking cap to figure out ways that work for you.
Now that Mercury is direct in Libra, clarity of mind is beginning to become stronger. I really love Mercury as a symbol in the sky. Perception is everything and Mercury, ruling the mind, touches on pretty much everything in life. The glyph of Mercury combines body, mind and spirit. He is the ancient “messenger of the gods” and symbolizes how our thoughts (and thus our choices) make all the difference in the world. Mind over matter. As above, so below. Mercury connects the dots between spirit and the material world.
Venus (ruler of Libra), Mars and Jupiter are in Virgo now, and Mercury (ruler of Virgo) is in Libra. So there is a very strong connection between the Virgo energy and the Libra energy now with this New Moon.
If you want to create harmony in your life and therefore bring that much more harmony into the world, making the effort, creating a plan and going for it is essential. Mars in Virgo wants us to push through, using our willpower and stamina to manifest our desires. What do you desire?
The Sun and Moon in square to Pluto in Capricorn leading up to this New Moon asks “What are your goals? How can you achieve them while creating more harmony in your life and the lives of those you relate to? How do you need to change so you can actually make it happen?”
It doesn’t matter if it’s business relationships, romantic relationships, or your relationship to anything else like food, money, the internet, or your smartphone, etc. It’s about how are you going to deal with all that you have to relate to in your day to day life so you can work towards manifesting the life you want and provide yourself with greater sense of self-esteem and personal freedom in the process. This could mean you weigh how multi-tasking helps or hinders you so you can make firmer decisions on how you're going to find balance.
Venus in Virgo encourages us to do something we love. Put love into whatever it is you’re working on. Everyone knows that when you put love into the dinner you’re making it’s going to taste so much better. This is true for anything we create with love. With Venus getting closer to opposing Neptune, it also suggests we open our hearts up to access higher wisdom so we can create our reality aligned with a more conscious, aware approach to how we do things. Looking beautiful and put together can feel much more important these days.
With Venus, Mars and Jupiter in Virgo, we can manifest our higher vision, hopes and wishes. By putting in the effort and the love, blessings can show up for us. This is a great time to try new apps or organization software to help you get yourself in order, in all areas of your life.
On Tuesday, Mercury and Saturn get cozy. This is great for making responsible, adult, mature choices that are respectful, diplomatic and conscious of karma. It’s a great time to study and concentrate. The ability to speak in a matter-of-fact way is increased and honesty can gain extra points. This can also be a time where those who tend to be shy, speak up for themselves and express themselves without feeling so inhibited or self-conscious. Being taken more seriously now is a bonus. Gaining clarity on how holding yourself back has created limitations in your life can lead to breaking the habit in honor of speaking your truth more fully.
Mars and Pluto are in harmony on Thursday giving us that extra push to create a plan that is geared towards our big ambitions, especially wealth-making goals. Expect this extra energy to come on earlier in the week as well, with motivations increasing to do what needs to be done. The desire to achieve success is significantly heightened now. A fresh jolt of energy can come to entrepreneurs and business minded people. The value of planning now as a tool to transform your life for the better is very important. It’s a great time to look at your business plan, or life plan and get more serious about taking action and go for it.
It's also a great time to start an exercise routine that requires lots of energy. Focus, stamina and determination will ground you allow you to feel your power. It's a great time to practice being present and in the moment. Those in position of power can quite easily be full of themselves with a strong egocentric attitude flowing through their veins.
Venus and Neptune are face to face across the sky on Friday, helping us to realize how love and compassion open our hearts. There is wisdom that can be gained from these higher ideals that can be brought into the real world where they can make an impact. Working towards a more loving world makes the effort worthwhile. Many who are interested in higher consciousness believe that evolving towards love is what the purpose of life is all about, and those who do can make a big impact now. Creating mystical and love inspired art, having an open heart chakra and expressing love in all you do, from dancing to writing, are all inspired by a higher vibration now.
Mars and Jupiter meet on Saturday, giving us another boost of inspired energy to take action towards our biggest hopes and wishes. Hard work brings wisdom. Financial issues could do well to have better accounting practices. It would be a good weekend to get your paperwork in order and create a strategic plan to reach towards the vision you have for your life.
For those who have anxiety or tend to worry, this could create some extra tension. Making a mountain out of a molehill is cliche, but it can certainly be a reality. Mars and Jupiter together in Virgo tight with Pluto in Capricorn, could see calculated “war-plans” drawn up if there were an escalated perceived threat. But with Venus not so far away in Virgo hopefully open hearts would tame such grandiose approaches. Venus loves to disarm Mars - “Make love, Not war.”
With the New Moon in Libra, it’s time to intentionally create harmony in your relationships. Allowing other people to be free to be themselves can be liberating for you and them. When people are truly able to be themselves, that’s when the personality shines, innovative ideas and creativity flourish. By releasing prejudice, and respecting others for their individuality, we can create a more harmonious world.
When you look at others, see the light that is in them, that spark of life that animates all of us. We are all connected. Ultimately, we are all from the same source and have the ability to choose to create a more thoughtful, respectful, honest reality. This New Moon in Libra is about making just and fair choices. What do your choices bring to the world?

There’s also a lot of activity happening in your financial sectors. It’s a good idea for you to make a plan to pay down your debt and make good choices about how you handle money you earn and borrow. When money is coming in and out quickly it can almost feel unreal, or ungraspable. Having the hopes to make passive extra income requires planning. It is ultimately your creativity coupled with intelligent action that draws the resources to you that you need. Effective communication focusing on honesty and fairness opens new doors for you.
Pisces: It is in our closest, most loving relationships where we can be ourselves most. In many cases who you appear to be to the public can be a very different person than you would be in your close and intimate relationships. Characteristics that others never see could be commonplace with those you love and trust fully. As you explore who you are and how you relate to others this week, you’ll likely find the dreams and wishes of others can inspire and motivate you to be more fully you. It is when you feel loved that you can open up and be real. The New Moon can get you to pay more attention to your money matters. A surprise change in work, investments, or an unexpected expense can ask you to get more honest about how you’re dealing with financial matters. It’s a good idea for you to make smart choices and to not spend frivolously. Instead, use your money as an energy force that is guided by intelligent choices and actions. A new trust in your relationship to money can begin now.
