In this forecast this week I will be looking at the New Moon in Libra – Mercury retrograde – Sun opposite Mars and more- It is a Week of Transformation.
Looking at the beginning of this week. Monday October 12th the main focus in my eyes will be that Mercury is stationary and about to turn retrograde on Tuesday. The overall feeling when Mercury is about to change direction is one of tension, stress, frustration and a lack of movement for many. Other people feel and see it as an opportunity to slow down, take a quite look inside and do some research.
On Monday Mercury will connect with Venus in an easy aspect while Venus is in one of Mercury’s ruling signs. The sextile aspect between these two planets and the signs they are in Scorpio and Virgo, means pay attention to your health or any medical issues that are important to you. This includes some remarkably simple things, eat whole foods, move more and get your Chi flowing. These are simple things that mean so much. If you are involved in researching, then you will have what it takes to do this.
Early Tuesday October 13 the Moon will enter the sign of Virgo, again one of the signs Mercury rules. Why do I mention this again? With Mercury retrograde at 9:05 PM ET at 11 Scorpio and the ruler of Virgo; with Venus and the Moon in Virgo sextile to retrograde Mercury it feels like important news is happening. Which is based around medicine and the details that are being payed attention to or ignored. I have full Mercury retrograde video on my You-Tube channel for additional information.
Monday – Tuesday – Wednesday Recap
Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday with Moon and Venus in Virgo and Mercury stationary in Scorpio we may feel overloaded with too many details or searching for more. We may receive information that has been held back or is necessary in the fight of the virus or whatever is on your mind.
It is my belief we can control the narrative in our own minds and simply take very good care of our own health by being focused on the details that are personal to us.
In Addition to this.
There are more ways we can use the first half of this week. Let’s begin with the Lunar Phase. We are currently in the final quarter of this lunar phase since the New Moon is on Friday, I’ll talk about that in a minute.
With all I have said so far about our health there IS more we can do with this. I want you to focus on letting go of old/bad habits. Maybe bad eating habits or old ways of thinking. Hopefully you are able to take some time this week to recognize if things around you are triggering you. If that is the case, there is a fairly good chance it’s coming from old beliefs and the way we were trained as children. Things that you were taught as a young person. With Mercury already taking a deep dive into Scorpio the retrograde period will amplify that. We have an opportunity to go deep and find out what is triggering us. Figure out why we eat like we do or think or respond in a certain way. If we can’t move beyond the worn-out old ways this year then I have no idea what else to say here.
With Mercury starting his retrograde connected to the Virgo planets and during this lunar phase that is all about releasing what is no longer needed. This week will be fabulous for just that, letting go of what is no longer useful, may never have been useful but it was learned behavior that you can now let go of.
What a blessing this can be if you are willing to go deep and discover yourself. If you would like some insight into this, we can use your Astrology chart for that. Book a session today.
The Balsamic Moon
Thursday October 15th the Moon enters Libra in the early hours of the morning 1:54 AM ET. All the way until Friday October 16th 3:31 PM ET the Libra Moon is balsamic. The meaning of this is we have another opportunity to release and let go. This time it is relationship oriented.
Maybe we are tying up loose ends with and old friend or partner. We could be ending a business partnership or finishing up a cooperative project at work. During this phase the Moon will square the Capricorn planets and be opposite Mars in Aries which means there is a lot of action and some foundational things to let go of before we reach the New Moon. As always, the details will depend on what’s happening in your life personally. I go over this in more detail on my Patreon platform if you’d like to join me there.
The last 45 degrees before the New Moon each month is that period to reflect, understand and then surrender to what is, in preparation for the New Moon to come.
New Moon in Libra
New Moon in Libra Friday October 16th 3:31 PM ET. The New Moon in Libra represents new beginnings and balance. We just did a lot of letting go in the balsamic lunar phase, which is like weeding your garden in preparation for planting new seeds.
Make sure over the next 48 hours from the New Moon that you set goals and intentions based around harmony and balance, cooperation in relationships as well as finding the right balance in regard to giving and receiving.
This New Moon phase also includes the Moon entering the sign of Scorpio on Saturday and continuing through Sunday. There’s a lot of opportunity here to do some serious work around your own personal needs. If you have an interest in going deeper try modalities such as hypnosis, meditations, shamanic journeying etc. There are many spiritual practices you can engage in over the weekend.
There’s always a lot more to talk about so please come and join me on my Patreon platform where we talk about these aspects and others I have not included here in more depth, six times a month.
