New Moon in Libra October 2020

The New Moon occurs at 20:31 (BST) on October 16, 2020 at 23°Li53′.

The Moon and Sun are in Libra where we are prompted to create a new start around our relationships with others as well as to balance our lives. The challenge is that this lunation opposes Mars retrograde, Eris and Lilith all in fiery Aries. This is a noisy, troublemaking, rebellious trio that will not quiet down or shut up! In truth though, some of the things they are shouting about need to change so their anger is understandable! With the Moon and Sun in Libra, we are also concerned with all that is right and just. Libra is connected legal matters, the place where justice is done. Meanwhile, squares to Jupiter, Saturn and Pluto in Capricorn force us into a corner and make us aware that we can’t just gloss over problems for the sake of peace, something that Libra is also inclined to do in its shadow expression. How do we keep our centre when it feels like the world is flying off its axis? This is the question that this lunation raises.

With the Sun and Mars still opposing one another, there’s a temptation for egos to get in the way of diplomatic relations. The Moon opposite Mars has the potential to trigger old anger. Old memories about feeling under the thumb, attacked and brow-beaten are stirred and it’s easy to go on the defensive. But the New Moon is also trine the North Node in Gemini which tells us that despite the difficulties, there is an opportunity to develop our communication style so that we can compromise and find agreement.

All the stress in this chart pattern falls on the Capricorn planets. It tells us that for us to regain our balance we must develop resilience, own our power, build understanding. We also need to be patient because some conflicts and problems cannot be resolved quickly. Mars wants everything to happen yesterday but sometimes the better strategy is to play the long game.

Venus, the ruler of this lunation is in Virgo. She tells us that there is a desire to make improvements and do the necessary work. We also have an underlying need to feel useful. But the opposition to Neptune brings in unhelpful idealism. Sometimes, when it feels like everything is wrong, we swing too far in the opposite direction. We want everything to be perfect, a paradise, a romantic movie with a happily-ever-after ending. Whilst we must all dare to dream; some dreams are so unrealistic that it is inevitable we will feel let down by each other and Life as nothing can live up to the ideal. The trines from Venus through to Pallas, Jupiter and Pluto offers us an easier alternative route. Make your peace with reality. Share what you can without negating yourself. Let go of what isn’t working or for you. Venus trine Uranus also advocates experimenting with new ideas or ways of relating along with acceptance of differences.

If you feel overwhelmed or angry, put your hands on your heart. Ground yourself. Come back to centre. The more balanced you feel within yourself, the harder it is to be destabilised by outer events.

WITCHTIPS & HOROSCOPES 10/14- 20/2020

Astrology by Lisa Stardust Buckle up, this week is gonna be intense. The Libra Sun aligns with the Nodes of Destiny on October 14th, which will give us the opportunity to make fated choices. The Sun and Pluto, who’s in Capricorn, create power struggles and ego conflicts on the 15th. The Libra New Moon occurs on the 16th, making us commit to what we love. The Sun squares off with Saturn, who’s in Capricorn, on October 18th shattering our confidences. The same day, Venus, who’s in Virgo, opposes Neptune, who’s in Pisces, which will add sensitivities to the overall vibe. Mars, who’s retrograde in Aries, shares a tense energy with Jupiter, who’s in Capricorn, on the 19th. Tensions will be heightened and rise then. Later in the day, Venus and Jupiter connect, mending arguments from earlier on. And, Mercury, who’s retrograde in Scorpio, connects with Uranus, who’s retrograde in Taurus, expanding our minds on the 19th.  Venus and the Nodes of Destiny are making important decisions around relationships and money on October 20th.   Aries There is a tendency for you to project your feelings onto others this week, whether you mean to or not. In order to avoid such drama, it’s imperative for you to take a step away from these situations to see them clearly before inserting your opinions and emotions into them.  Taurus Don’t give up on your visions and dreams, no matter what the naysayers want you to think. It’s time for you to start believing in yourself. With an extra dash of confidence, you will be able to take on the world with a fresh new attitude and lust for life.  Gemini More than ever, you are focusing on your inner artistry. The caveat is that you are having issues connecting to a creative venture. Give yourself a little bit of time to find a project that sparks your interests and talents. You’ll find a unique opportunity that speaks to you soon.  Cancer All work and no play can frustrate anyone — even you. Try finding balance in your schedule to ensure that you can focus an equal amount of energy in all of the parts of your life that you wish. This will help you find the peace of mind that you need.  Leo Words have a lot of power, which is why you’ll need to choose yours wisely this week. Become an advocate for a cause you hold dear. Use your voice to help bring change to the world — which is something that your passionate mind and fiery heart will totally endorse.  Virgo Being direct with others this week will not only help you gain clarity, it’ll also allow you to avoid messy confrontations over situations that could have easily been avoided. Your sassy vibe may be tough for others to understand — but it will help you to assert and express yourself clearly.  Libra You’re giving all facets of your life a lot of energy. But, you haven’t been giving yourself much love and attention. Take a few minutes out of your day and state affirmations to yourself while looking in the mirror. Own your fabulousness. This will help you to find your way.  Scorpio You may not want to admit you’ve been wrong about past matters, but you will find solace in confronting the past and making amends with those who you’ve had conflict with. If you don’t want to interact with them, you can send them love and light, then let it go. Sagittarius You may be feeling that you’re overstretched for time this week, due to your busy schedule. Your hard working ways are now leaving you depleted in a lot of areas, which is making you need extra down time. Don’t be afraid to embrace low key evenings at home to decompress. Capricorn It’s never the right time to launch a new project, but the cosmos are pointing towards you commiting to an exciting endeavor. You’ll be successful even though you are doubting yourself. Stand tall and proud. Let your confidence and radiance shine. Don’t second guess yourself this week. You got this!  Aquarius Embracing a spiritual endeavor will help you expand your mind. Consider aligning yourself with an old activity and philosophy that you once found comfort in. Not only will you change your personal vibe, but you will open up your mind to new possibilities which will help you grow and evolve.  Pisces Making the best choices for yourself will be extra challenging this week. The answer to your indecisiveness lies within yourself. Therefore, it’s important to lean into your intuition to feel and suss out what feels right for yourself. Trust your gut because the answers lie within you and nobody else.
