This New Moon in Libra on October 7 begins at 2:44 pm EDT (6:44 pm GMT). New moons are times for new beginnings, and this new moon will be especially potent for relationships, sex, and passion. No planetary aspects affect the New Moon itself, but Libra is ruled by Venus, which remains in conjunction with Mars in Scorpio. This puts heavy emphasis of relationships of all kinds, and the Scorpio energy ensures that any relationship commitments made during this time will be lasting.
Venus goes retrograde shortly after the New Moon, making now the time to examine all of your relationships, whether with family, friends, lovers, business partners, or even enemies. Libra’s balancing energy provides equity to these partnerships.
