Here’s What Each Zodiac Sign Can Expect From October’s New Moon In Libra

The New Moon in Libra will be on October 16th, inspiring us to create balance and harmony. The effects of this transit will last until early next year. Although inspirational, this won’t be easy, since the Moon will be in opposition to Mars and will be squaring off Saturn, Jupiter, and Pluto. It will be a tough transit for a lot of folks, especially the Cardinal signs, as they try to reclaim some balance and momentum to power through the end of this year. In order to be successful during this transit, there has to be a lot of self-confidence and restraint on our end. Saturn will continue making us question ourselves, and with this stress to the New Moon, it can pull us out of our comfort zone and make us question and doubt ourselves. There will be a coldness in this transit, but given that it is in a Cardinal sign, we can still start something new even if it will be a challenge. Nevertheless, this Moon can be a great period to make changes, close chapters, and make some revisions to our goals. Positive thoughts and finding out inner strength can bring us gifts in the darker moments of this month.

Aries

This New Moon will feel like a blast from the past. You might be reminiscing about people you no longer speak to or the impact of your past romantic relationships. Although this is a new beginning, you will feel like cutting out things from the past to move on. With Mars in your sign, you will want to focus on your rebirth, but you first need to prioritize your needs and wants to truly channel this energy into. Rest up if you are burnt out so you can come out stronger than ever in November.

Taurus

You will be pushed to excel with this transit. There may be a lot of responsibilities thrown your way, which will make you feel overwhelmed. Understand that if things are becoming unbearable, you need to take a break and analyze what is causing you stress. The New Moon in Libra is a time for you to find balance in the chaos. It might be tough now to assert yourself with Mars retrograde, but you have the power to push through. Remember that slow and steady always wins, especially now.

Gemini

We need lighthearted transits, and this one may be a little easier for you compared to others. Of course, it will present some challenges as you try to appease to your friends and those who you may be interested in romantically. Strike a balance with both parties and try to preserve the peace within them. This can also translate into you not feeling lost when it comes to your creative side. Find the confidence to finish some projects and to rekindle some faith in what you are capable of.
