October is one of my favourite months of the year! Here in Melbourne is spring; everything is beginning to bloom, and it’s time to start planting vegetable seeds and seedlings. In the northern hemisphere is autumn/fall, a truly beautiful time as the leaves transform into glorious autumnal shades.
The New Moon brings a new cycle, and the Libra New Moon on the 6th of October is about finding ways to re-establish balance that has been lost. Having a sense of equilibrium helps our lives to flow more smoothly. Libra season brings clarity, honesty and cooperation and creates a peaceful, neutral position.
Whether it’s in personal or business relationships, the influence of the Libra New Moon helps us see both sides of any story. Libra’s diplomatic energy will also help you weigh up all the pros and cons before making a final decision.
The New Moon in Libra may also be when you initiate a new relationship or have a fresh start in an existing one. Finding balance, honesty and authenticity in our lives will be extra important now.
October kicks off with the Hanged Man, leaving many of us in limbo due to ongoing lockdowns and restrictions. Our lives are on hold as we cannot travel freely, work, or visit family and friends. Let the pause provide time to reflect and look at your situation from a different perspective.
Libra brings honesty and truth. There may be something that you need to stop struggling against, face and surrender. It may involve some sacrifice but let go.
The Four of Cups brings a sense of dissatisfaction in week two. Again, it may be time to evaluate your position and consider the options available. If it doesn’t suit you, you may need to wait until the right opportunity comes along.
The Page of Swords encourages you to stay open-minded in week three. New ideas will appear, you may be able to connect the dots or gain some insight. Don’t hold back, be optimistic and forthright! Speak the truth and think clearly.
The last week of the month sees you in a great position. The ideas and insights that you gained in week three will grow and develop. You will be looking to the future and making plans. There will be a new path forward where you will be working towards what you want.
The world is experiencing a powerful phase of transition, and it may leave you feeling as though you are in no man’s land or between worlds. You may not be able to see what is ahead, but trust in the process of change and growth.
The seeds planted in the past begin to take root, but what surfaces may not be what you expected. Remain curious and open-minded and trust that the right timing and luck will bring something better than you imagined and unlike anything you have known before.
