Welcome to The Monthly Astrology Snapshot for the next lunar month beginning at the new moon in Libra happening October 6th everywhere!
Buckle up everyone, this lunar month involves multiple gear changes as we collectively prepare to move in a new direction. This is going to be a weird time as we will feel the openings and yet things actually won't really be moving forwards this month. This push pull can create tension so be mindful that many of us are experiencing this intensity and may be feeling more frustrated than normal.
Last lunar month, we had strong Neptune energy plus multiple planets completing what felt like a drawn out retrograde period. This dynamic gave a sense of everything feeling a bit nebulous, weird and unclear. Neptune at best brings in spirituality but at worst, brings confusion and promotes bypassing. This energy is now shifting and once we get to the next new moon in Scorpio in November, we will be experiencing a very different energetic pace on Earth.
The energy really starts building this month. Mars is in direct aspect to both the new and full moons but he is in the underworld which means he is not visible to the naked eye. Right now, Mars is so close to the Sun that we can't see him and astrologers over time have noticed that when planets aren't visible, we aren't able to access their energy in the same way.
Mars is the God of War! Mars is our life force, our ability to initiate, our power and passion. We notice Mars energy at the 3D level. Mars is felt. Mars is the area of our lives where we take action. It is our passion and our ability to stand for what we believe! This is the place within where we know what we will live and die for!
When Mars is in the underworld, this energy isn't fully accessible to us. This may also feel like something is boiling under the surface and tension rising! This is why we will feel planets starting to turn direct but we won't truly feel things moving forwards in our lives until Mars becomes visible again in November.
With Mars being involved but invisible this lunar month, we are dealing with tensions boiling underneath the surface and with multiple planets still retrograde for the next few weeks, the coming weeks are a moment where the rubber band is being pulled all the way back to its greatest tension for maximum power and momentum. It's intense!
Things will begin shifting once Pluto stations direct on October 6, just 9 hours after the new moon in Libra, we will begin to feel the shift as we have pulled the rubber band back as far as it can go and now we are focusing on our aim and this is a very important time to be intentional with your life and where you wish things to be going in the future. We can truly harness this cycle at an individual level!
Once the rubber band has been released, we can't control the direction as there is so much power behind it, but, we can set it in the right direction so this new moon in Libra coming up is a potent moment to set solid intentions about your life direction so that once all of the energies are moving forwards again, you are on the right trajectory and can ride the powerful energy shifts!
The releasing and moving forwards process will play out over the next couple of months as multiple planets will move forwards and Mars will become visible again (in Scorpio!!!) in November, this will be intense and I will go into this more next month. November is going to be a big energy month but let's get ready in October!
Here's a breakdown of the planets moving forwards this lunar month:
- OCTOBER 6 - Pluto stations direct in Capricorn.
- OCTOBER 11 - Saturn stations direct in Aquarius.
- OCTOBER 18 - Jupiter and then Mercury both station direct. Jupiter in Aquarius and then Mercury in Libra.
However, the hidden Mars dynamic is a bit concerning as this could be describing hidden agendas but this will all become clearer as Mars becomes visible... again this is next month!
At the collective level, we will potentially observe so much happening and moving forwards over the next few months. The old paradigms are not ready to totally crumble and the new paradigms are still not quite ready to birth fully so the rest of this year may feel really uncomfortable for many of us. However, knowing this is happening is always a blessing allowing us to work consciously with the energy patterns.
To make the most of these cycles in your personal world, notice what old beliefs, stories, fears and worries are falling away. Allow this to happen. Let go with the full moon and the waning moon phase. Don't hold onto to outdated beliefs. Question these. Do your best to embrace the changes. To feel empowered with change, work with the new moon and waxing moon phase to intentionally engage with who you want to be and how you wish your life to be!
I honestly see that these bigger dynamics are reshaping us as a species and some of it is going to be super exciting and of course, some will be dark as the collective shadow comes up to the surface. But we are coming together as a global community more and at the same time, we are being encouraged to take responsibility and to navigate our unique individual complexities and you can't do that if you don't engage with your inner world!
This lunar month, my main advice, is to be aware of this energy playing out. This is a potent month to practice true mindfulness which simply is to observe what is coming up and to access the gap between what you are experiencing and how you behave. You don't have to act out everything you think and feel! You are able to watch this and choose how to respond in every situation in your life. Our behaviours are never anyone else's fault or responsibility, they are only ours and when we truly realise this, we are liberated from being at the mercy of our pain, fear and confusion!
Take it easy on yourself and others this month as we are all going through it. There will be much clearing happening and this is not always comfortable or fun, but when you know this is what's up, you can work with it and harness the cycle to support yourself towards living a meaningful and powerful life!
(i) NEW MOON IN LIBRA - October 6th everywhere (scroll down for exact times)
This new moon is potent. Exactly conjunct Mars in Libra, this could be an agitating and uncomfortable time for some of us. However, if you are one to work in ritual with the new moon, then this is the time to get your aim right as the rubber band is preparing to release.
This is a moment to get clear on how you want to move forwards. Remember, this is in Libra and Libra is all about relationships so this is a moment to check in on how you are with the people in your life.
Libra is about balance but not necessarily everything being perfectly balanced. Libra teaches us that there is an art to balance and knowing when you may need a bit more here and a bit less there. Take a moment to check in with how your balance is and seed in intentions in your life to support you to bring more harmony into all of your relationships including your relationship to your body, money, family etc.
Also, Pluto is standing still preparing to turn direct at this new moon and this will power up all the themes associated with transformation. Then throw into the mix Mars being conjunct this lunation... big changes! Big revolution! My sense is we will feel this one at a collective level. This is potentially a very tense time so please practice kindness and mindfulness and remember that we are all in this one together!
(ii) FULL MOON IN ARIES - October 20th/21st (scroll down for exact times)
This full moon is going to be stirring up personal power! This is a full moon to watch the energies and to watch how you are responding to the world and others. Mars is really heating up now as he is preparing for his return from the underworld and we will feel the heat!
At the personal level, something is ripening at this full moon, we may feel more energised and we may feel we have more power and courage to take on what we need to to move our personal stories forwards. Pluto is in a hard aspect so whatever is coming through at this time will be powerful and any changes tend to be permanent when Pluto is involved.

:: There is of course so much more going on this lunar month which I am weaving into rituals for people participating in <<<The Lunar Project >>> EXACT MOON TIMES & DATES
The New Moon & Full Moon rituals are considered the main rituals because it's when the moon is strongest and most powerful. It's always powerful to do work in ritual with both of these lunation's at the exact time as they feed into each other as it is at the full moon that we take in and release the seeds we planted at the new moon.

:: OCT 28/29 » LAST QUARTER MOON IN LEO
This lunar month is intense and yet there will also be the potential for some positive developments with strong themes around people reconnecting, new communities forming and some may be with the intention of bringing about great change. This shift does not have to be war like or violent. Humanity wants to evolve and this dynamic is only going to build and all power dynamics are going to go through some big shifts over the next couple of months.
Please take care of yourselves this month. I truly hope that this information will help you to understand the bigger dynamics at play so that you can adjust your mindset and actually embrace the shifts.
This could actually be a powerfully beneficial time to embrace true transformation but you need to be intentional with it and this new moon in Libra could be a magically potent time to engage with intentionality so that when the energies really start moving forwards, you can be confident that you are travelling in the right direction and you can ride the energy with joy, power and grace!
With love always,
