October Moon Cycles

The four Moon phases are the New Moon, First Quarter Moon, Full Moon and Last Quarter  Moon. The New Moon Phase occurs when the Moon is completely dark with no luminosity,  while the Full Moon phase occurs when there is 100-percent luminosity. The best time to begin a project is during the New Moon as Sun conjunct Moon gives a burst of energy. The worst time to start a project is during the day before the New Moon as the energy flow is weak.

October 9~ New Moon 15º Libra

October 24 ~ Full Moon 1º Taurus

Libra of the Month - Kate Winslet

Born October 5, 1975 -is an English actress who portrayed seventeen year old Rose DeWitt, opposite Leonardo De Caprio as a poor Irish lad in Titanic. She also starred in in Revolutionary Road, Sense and Sensibility, and Finding Neverland. She has both inner and outer beauty. With her Sun, Moon, and Mercury in Libra, Kate is passionate about helping others. She has been involved in the autism awareness, PETA, and many children’s causes.

New Moon October 8~ 15º Libra 11:46 p.m. EDT

The New Moon is exact 15 minutes before October 9, so it will be felt October 9-11. The Libra Moon emphasizes social activities, beauty, and legal matters. This is a good time to beatify body and home, as well as to start a healthy diet, exercise, and decorate for fall.

The job market should remain strong with Uranus (change) in good aspect to Saturn in  Capricorn (government). That said, people are becoming more aware of conditions of  women in and out of the political arena. The New Moon makes a difficult aspect to Pluto (the great revealer) which can only intensify intensity to existing issues and create new  problems related to power. Since the Moon joins Saturn (restriction), the public feels over-burdened. If the lack of confidence in government continues, there could a correction in the stock market later in October—just before the midterm elections.

Full Moon October 24~ 01°13′ Taurus at 12:45 P.M. EDT

The Full Moon conjunct Uranus at 01°13′ Taurus. Emotions run high for the next two weeks. Watch your words because the love planet Venus is also opposite the planet of change. However, with a positive aspect to Saturn, involved, change can be met with a level head—and a bit of patience! On a personal level, take to enjoy the fall bounty. Bake a pie, take a walk, and stock up on Halloween treats.

When in doubt, say nothing.  Focus on improving your outlook instead of blaming others. Remember to exercise, meditate, and do some spiritual service as we begin the fall season.
