The Libra New Moon changes everything

     One transit can’t change everything, but even cynical Capricorn will have to admit that the Libra New Moon is an amazing day to manifest meaningful changes. Oh, but I’m getting ahead of myself. Let’s start over.  

     On Oct. 6 at 5:05 a.m., we have our tenth New Moon of 2021, and this one takes place in fair-minded Libra (#duh). Libra is one of four cardinal signs, all of which love to do one thing: lead, initiate and start new projects. (That’s three things, but whatever.) And the urge to initiate and start something is especially strong this New Moon because Mars, the planet of action and energy, is rubbing elbows with it.  

     But wait, there’s more. 

     Pluto, the planet of transformation, turns direct the very same day, which … isn’t as meaningful as the Sun-Moon-Mars conjunction, but it’s still worth mentioning. Also worth mentioning is Uranus, the planet of sudden change, is in close contact with the New Moon, which means anything unexpected should be absolutely expected.  

     Of course, what this all means depends entirely on your zodiac sign, so without further ado: 

Your 2021 Libra New Moon Horoscope 

Aries ♈ 

     Again with the partnership stuff! You’re so sick of searching for another person to “complete you” you could puke. A better option is to focus on attracting that near-perfect other half (rather than searching). Mars could motivate this person to mosey into your life without you having to do anything…  

Taurus ♉ 

     This New Moon brings some order into your work space. It’s high time to tidy up that mess you call a desk (or is it a dresser?). Mars makes the cleaning seem like a fun challenge — so long as you have someone to do the dirty work. Otherwise, forget it…  

Gemini ♊ 

     Gratitude is the attitude that best serves your goals today. Be grateful for what you already got to summon what you really want. Mars enlivens you, giving you loads of courage, confidence, wit and charm. This is one of the most potent New Moons for you, so don’t waste it…   

Cancer ♋ 

     Create some peace in your home space. You’re a sensitive soul and you need the right people and props around you. So, try remodeling your room, getting a new roommate or looking for an altogether new casa. Whatever you do, Mars urges you to take direct yet mindful and moderate action…  

Leo ♌ 

     Look out: positive news is heading your way. An important person (like, say, your crush) may reach out via text, email or DM, and this message could kick off a whirlwind flirtation. Buuut if the person is your boss or bro, then the convo will be a lot more platonic…  

Virgo ♍ 

     Vow to utilize your hard skills and boost your current financial situation. To do this, you must concentrate on building and sustaining your assets. If you’re unsure about what those assets are, an opportunity that provides clarity could arise as early as Wednesday. Mars reminds you to put yourself first…  

Libra ♎ 

     Like a second birthday, this New Moon is all about you. It’s a rare opportunity to solely focus on your aims, goals and intentions in life, love, school, work or whatever. Mars revs up your confidence and gives you the courage needed to go after any and everything you desire…  

Scorpio ♏ 

     Supreme sensitivity has your imagination and intuition surging. It’s almost like you’re in another mystical world. Mars heightens your emotions and you can use this energy to boost any wishes you feel like making. Feel free to waste the day dreaming and fantasizing — it’s about all you’re interested in anyway…   

Sagittarius ♐ 

     Surprises are on their way and they have to do with a work/friend group. Maybe you all decide to work on a project together! Or maybe you don’t! Just about anything can happen today, including disappointment and tension. Sorry, I don’t make the rules, I just write about them… 

Capricorn ♑ 

     Commit to pursuing your professional goals. You’ve got the determination needed to make whatever you want happen and Mars increases it, so just keep your eye on the prize. There may even be an exciting opportunity to grow your role at work/school, via an important promotion or project lead…  

Aquarius ♒ 

     Affections and optimism run high, and you feel as generous as Robin Hood. This is one of those days when pretty much everything you wish for has the chance of coming true. Mars pushes you to move past that point of comfort so you can grow all of your goals…  

Pisces ♓ 

     Passive resistance is your M.O., but Mars provokes you to plunge into your creative depths. An emotional crisis is almost guaranteed, and that could be exactly what you need to cleanse the palate, so to speak. Your intuition is sky-high and exceedingly powerful. Use it to make some magic…
