New Moon-October 2021

This new moon in Libra is occurring just three days after Mean Girls day. IYKYK. And it is sooo fetch.

This new moon in Libra is happening on Wednesday, October 6th. It is the only new moon this year to take place in the zodiac sign of Libra which makes it extra special. Libra is known to signify relationships, balance, and justice. The makeups, the breakups, the endings, and new beginnings. This new moon represents harmony and balance in our relationships.

This makes it a great time to go on a date with your partner or spice things up in your relationship. Libra doesn't only pertain to romantic relationships though. This can be a time to mend that friendship that was on the outs or can also represent a shift in our work relationships as well. This could mean a change in staffing or a stronger bond between employees is forming.

Moon phases and astrology would be nothing without Mercury retrograde f**king things up again, as per usual. Because Mercury is retrograde at the same time as this Libra new moon, that can mean conversations you have with friends could be rocky. If you're talking through issues within your friendship or relationship, try to avoid bringing up things from the past. Let sleeping dogs lie, bury the hatchet, let bygones be bygones. You get the point. Don't drudge up the past. Let it go and focus on how your relationship can move forward in a happy and healthy way.

Fortunately, Mercury moves out of retrograde in a few weeks. If the conversation you're having is not productive and is leaving you feeling on edge, give it a few weeks and revisit the topic. While you may not see eye to eye with the person you're conversating with right now, that can change in a few weeks. Time heals all wounds or something, right?

Libra is also ruled by the planet, Venus. Venus is well known for love, romance, and self-care. This is a great time to not only work on the relationships you have with other people, but to work on the relationship you have with yourself. If I'm staying in line with my Mean Girls references (which, duh, I am), then that means with this new moon falling on Wednesday, "On Wednesday's, we wear pink."

Wear pink, or another color you feel good in! Treat yourself to a spa day, meditate, go for a walk, eat tasty food. Do what makes you feel good. After all, the relationship you have with yourself is the most important. Be sure to make an effort to listen to yourself and what your body needs at this time.

Along with taking care of your relationships with other people as well as yourself, take care of your home at this time too. You have more relationships than just physical ones with family, friends, and coworkers. You have a relationship with your home, your pet if you have one, and the outdoors. Cultivate ALL of your relationships at this time and restore balance to areas that are lacking.

Whatever you decide to restore balance to, whichever conversations you choose to have at this time, know that the Libra new moon is giving you a push in that direction.
