New Moon In Libra: October 16, 2020 – Effects By House

libra enid collins old purseThe new moon in Libra takes place midday on October 16th.  With the sun and moon opposing Mars and squaring Jupiter, Saturn and Pluto in Capricorn, you can expect to be squeezed.  This may be exactly what you need!

It’s hot (Mars) and pressured (Saturn/Capricorn).
With the emphasis on Libra, you may feel lonely.
Why not do something about it?

Make an effort (Mars) to get along (Libra).
Offer (and receive) emotional (moon) support (Saturn).
Fortify your connections to others and perhaps try to heal relationships you (or they) have damaged.

You can make this a time to go out of your way to be kind.  Or you can (continue) to harden your heart and reinforce your position.

If your life seems off balance, this is a great time to be fair and achieve some kind of equilibrium in virtually every area of your life. Stick together and strive for peace.

New Moon In Libra: October 16, 2020 – Effects By House — 20 Comments

  1. Right at the beginning of 1st house.
    I’m wondering where I might be making a first impression…?
    I hardly go anywhere these days (Covid in the big city isn’t too inviting).
    Bah, humbug!!!

    • I understand the focus of a T Square is the sign and degree of the open angle; 24 Cancer in this case. A degree away from my Venus. Comments in general or personal ?

    • Mine too but at 20 degrees. I wish us both good outcomes! I was thinking of visiting a friend but she is going through Chemotherapy and her immune system is very low. I’m sure her husband may not allow it or she might not be up to it. I’ll ask anyway!

  2. My fiancé and I were contacted by our rental agency that the owner would like to move back into the property the 1st. Now of course it upset me because we were going to do another year lease and two I have to find another rental during Mercury rx.. annoying. I’m praying this doesn’t set us back.
    This new moon lands in my 4th house so I will be cleaning, moving stuff around and putting things back into boxes. Has anyone got anything good out of Mercury rx?

  3. New moon is conjunct my venus and south node. Lover from my past has returned,lives 1000 miles away,long distance, yet I find myself drawn in like a moth to a flame

  4. I will balance it by trying to stay in touch with my feelings and not just relying on diplomatic skills to feel alive and okay. It’s so important for Libra to have harmony in the social world it often overshadows this in my experience

  5. Libra Sun new moon conjunct at 23% and natal Neptune conjunct sun in 7th house having a family get together first since last year

  6. That new moon is in my first house 3deg away from my natal Jupiter. Being a sun Sag, I am sure it will be a good influence but that retrograde Merc in my second opposing Uranus in my 8th is no fun. I can use that new moon as a reminder that Jupiter in my first house has brought me amazing support (internal, in terms of faith in myself and external from benevolent people) in the past. Imagine my chart folding along the mercury Uranus opposition lol….I will still hang on to the connection Jupiter in Libra, Mars in Scorpio and the Sun in Sag all at 26 degrees. Phew….

  7. New moon occurs in my 2nd house sextile my Fortuna in leo @23 and conjuct my venus in libra @24. what will exactly happen i dont know.

  8. 1st house transit for this new moon will not only conj ASC but I’ve got Neptune in this house as well.
    What w/transit Nep opp transit Virgo the overall vibe of illusion, temporariness, sacrifice/martyrdom, work and mystery prevail.
    Damn. And I thought this honey was diggin me.
    Guess I betta wait awhile.
