October 2013 Full & New Moons: New Moon in Libra & Lunar Eclipse in Aries
A full moon occurs when the transit (moving) Sun and Moon are exactly opposing one another in the zodiac. It tends to signal a time of endings, culminations, and things coming to fruition. A new moon occurs when when the transit Sun and Moon are in the exact same spot in the zodiac. It tends to signal a time of new opportunities, growth, and optimism. A lunar eclipse is like a full moon.
For information on how the new/full moons may impact your sign, read the monthly horoscope.
October 4th 2013 New Moon in Libra
A new moon occurs at 8:35PM ET at 11 degrees 56 minutes of Libra. In Libra, we want to create world peace. Well, sort of. We want everyone to get along, we don't want anyone to win or lose, we want compromise and equality and justice without revenge. We're attracted to charming and beautiful people, and the arts gets out attention. We focus on relationships and commitment, what these things mean and how we can have more. This new moon is opposite (difficult aspect) transit (moving) Uranus in Aries, which downplays the harmonious nature of Libra. We can have trouble with something unexpected or sudden, be rash and impulsive, and create rebellion whether it's necessary or not. If you're a Libra Sun, Moon, or mid-Libra rising, you may feels the effects of this moon most.
October 18th 2013 Lunar Eclipse in Aries
A lunar eclipse occurs at 7:50PM ET at 25 degrees 51 minutes of Aries. In Aries, we put our emotions out there for the whole world to see, and we don't care what people think about them. We're driven and want to do something, anything, and need to get a grip on this energy. If it isn't harnessed correctly, we could do things that we regret later and gt us into a lot of trouble. We can see the things we've worked hard at accomplishing come to fruition, and hard work is rewarded while laziness and dumb decisions are punished. The harsher you're punished, the more the universe is trying to get your attention to make you change your approach. Listen up before it's too late. Remember that eclipses can impact us for up to six months. If you're an Aries Sun, Moon, or late Aries rising, you may feel the effects of this moon most.
