Here’s How The New Moon In Libra Will Affect Your Zodiac Sign

Use the rejuvenating energy of this moon phase to embark on a fresh start in your life.

Horoscopes

If you are looking for love, are trying to put that spark back into your relationship, would like to reconnect with your ex or an old friend, or are contemplating switching up your look with one of your favorite old styles, then the new moon on October 6 is for you! Taking place in Libra - the astrological sign that rules relationships, beauty, justice and harmony - this month's new moon will highlight all of our romantic and platonic relationships.


The New Moon in Libra is urging us to correct any imbalances and to right any wrongs that have been causing a rift between ourselves, our friends, our significant others, and the way we view ourselves physically. It's time for a new beginning with the people you value the most, but who you may have been drifting away from.

In astrology, the New Moon is a period of fresh beginnings. A New Moon in Libra cycle is typically an excellent time to embark on a fresh, new relationship. However, because this New Moon is taking place during a Mercury Retrograde period, your best bet is to use this time to reflect on a relationship that went awry that has the strong potential to be salvaged.

Whoever you meet for the first time during a Mercury Retrograde is unlikely to remain in your life for the long haul. Therefore, this isn't an ideal time to refresh that online dating profile (if you're looking for something serious, that is!). Unfortunately, because this new moon is hitting Mars at a tight angle and is quincunx-ing Uranus, many of you won't heed this advice! But don't say Jayde didn't warn you!

Many of us are likely to find ourselves giving old relationships a second chance in the three days preceding and following this New Moon. There is also an increased chance that you will take this time to address relationship imbalances and right any wrongs that have interfered with your ability to interact harmoniously with others, both romantically and platonically.

Single? Now is the ultimate time to get your work/life balance in order. Figure out how to adjust your schedule in order to incorporate mindful activities on a regular basis, like morning yoga or a ritual moon bath regimen. This is also a great time to refresh your look if you've been falling behind on your hair or nail appointments.

Here’s how your sign can make the best use of October’s New Moon in Libra:

  1. Aries: Revisit what went wrong in your relationships and make amends.
  2. Taurus: Spice up your sex life with your significant other.
  3. Gemini: Take a moment to reconnect with your spirituality in a group setting. Visit your old church or join a spirituality-focused book club.
  4. Cancer: This is the perfect period for interviews or to shoot for that promotion.
  5. Leo: Reconnect with an old friend.
  6. Virgo: Reconnect with your spirituality in solitude. Meditate or take a ritual moon bath.
  7. Libra: Revisit one of your favorite old hairstyles or beauty routines.
  8. Scorpio: Give your credit card statements and budget a once over.
  9. Sagittarius: Pay a compliment or perform a kind act to your neighbor or roommate.
  10. Capricorn: Rearrange your furniture or add a new decor piece to your apartment.
  11. Aquarius: Pick up an old hobby that you haven't had time for lately.
  12. Pisces: Revisit an old workout or diet regimen.

Bonus for all signs: Take a moon ritual bath. It is wise to take a spiritual bath during this time because your mind and body's ability to release and detoxify itself is at its peak.

A New Moon is an ideal time for setting new intentions and goals. Use the rejuvenating energy of this moon phase to embark on a fresh start in your life.

With this moon phase taking place during a retrograde, the primary theme of the New Moon in Libra is that of revisiting old people and lifestyle choices that made us feel good about ourselves, and embarking on a new phase of life with these in mind.

Your October 2022 Horoscopes Are All About Finding Flow & Alignment

October is a month of balance. With some energy moving direct and some energy moving retrograde, there is a middle ground to find this month between what is unfolding and what you are letting go. The month begins with Mercury officially moving out of retrograde and going direct in Virgo. Mercury this month is cleaning house and sprucing things up after the somewhat tyrant energy it’s brought over the past few weeks. Now that Mercury is direct, there is less interruption when it comes to daily flow and plans, and this is a good month to start setting things into motion.

The Myth Of The Sex Drive & How Libido Changes From Your 20s, 30s, 40s & 50s

No one prepared me for how horny I would be in my late 30s. All the elders in my life prepared me for random chin hairs, weight gain, and menopause but no one said a mumbling word about my sex drive. Something happens the closer you get to forty. I went from wanting sex here and there to wanting it all the damn time. Is there a support group for this? I can’t be the only one who has the sex drive of the Energizer Bunny. Upon my research to figure out why I felt like a cat in heat, I discovered several theories surrounding women and our sex drives–including one that says the concept of having a sex drive is a myth altogether.

If you have been on social media for any significant amount of time this year you may have come across women saying that they are in their “villain era.” For these women, being a villain means embracing the negativity and judgment from others that comes when you say “no” to people, and living your life unapologetically. For them, being a villain means letting the chips fall where they may when you no longer allow other people’s ideas about you to restrict you from living the life that you want and deserve.
