A Strong Scorpio Flavor — Forecast for Oct. 8th – 14th


This week’s headline items: the New Moon in Libra becomes exact late on Monday late evening, Mars ends its Shadow phase and Mercury changes signs from Libra to Scorpio on Tuesday; Pluto’s Station ends on Friday, and on Sunday, Venus ends hers.

Good times to start taking action on your New Moon Intentions are Saturday during the day or Sunday late afternoon (as always, all times in this forecast correspond to the Eastern US time zone).

There will be three Moon VoC phases this week: Tuesday early morning (for a little over 19 hours), Thursday evening (for a little over 10.5 hours), and Saturday late evening (for a little over 18 hours).

Now, this week’s Forecast:

Monday (Oct. 8th): the Moon remains in harmony-loving, balance-seeking Libra all day. It will journey there until 12:09am EDT Tuesday night/Wednesday very early morning. The energy of the Libra Moon helps us be naturally courteous and diplomatic; we are more polite at this time, as we seek the approval of others.

We very much want to maintain equal, fair relationships at this time; we are therefore open to compromise and negotiation. These next few days are likewise a great time for mediation — but our need for peace and accompanying aversion to direct conflict could pull us to “yes” more easily than we might like.

We may also be able to see both sides of the equation so well that we can’t make decisions. As best as you can, find an inner balance with this and communicate what needs to be said with grace and charm — even if it’s “No” 😉 One last quick note: this is also a great time for anything to do with visual arts.

Monday late evening (11:47pm EDT)the Moon aligns with the Sun in almost 16 degrees of Libra, beginning a new Moon cycle.

The New Moon is an introverted time — we go within to learn what we wish to align ourselves with for the next 28 days. With the New Moon in harmony-loving, balance-seeking Libra, this will likely be win-win situations, fair exchanges, harmony in relationships and our general environment. Check out my New Moon video to learn more about this.

That said, we need to acknowledge that this New Moon has a very Scorpionic flavor to it, due to both the Pluto Station and its square to the New Moon, and due to the Venus’s Station in Scorpio.

More about those details in a moment…. but first, let’s talk about the Libra component…
