New Moon in Libra: October 8, 2018 – Effects By House

libra enid collins old purseThe new moon in Libra takes place late in the evening on October 8th.  Mars in Aquarius will trine the Sun and Moon. Outside of that, these bodies will be unaspected.

You can think of this like chocolate cake with chocolate frosting. No sprinkles, no sparklers, it’s pure.  I deliberately chose the picture for this post to illustrate this. It’s Libra overload!  

The house where the new moon falls in your chart will be infused with Libra energy.  Think in terms of beauty, balance, give and take, manners, love and complementary pairings.

  1. New Moon in the 8th house – Seeing the other person’s side in the psychological realm.

    This new moon in Libra (where I have Sun, Mars, Merc, NN) will T-square my Saturn in Cap (father) and Moon in Cancer (mother). So it’s a natal T-square for me; familiar terrain.

    My elderly parents are now ready to be helped. They have explicitly stated this recently. As I now am back living in their home town, my intention is to assist them in whatever manner I can, as per their requests. We have never been able to interact easily or quite successfully (and I am now past my 2nd Saturn Return) so this will be a challenge. “Seeing the other person’s side in the psychological realm” will definitely be in order and shall be my intention.

    • Ann – you’ll be inspired to root out (Pluto) emotional (Moon) relationship (Libra) issues.

      Annabell – you’ll be wanting to improve communication (Gemini) issues possibly with your siblings or new starts in your nearby community (third house).

  2. New Moon is 2 degrees from my North Node in the First House — squaring my Cap Sun, which is now conjunct Pluto’s transit!

    Did I mention I was also in my 2nd Saturn Return?

  3. NM in my Libra 8H trining Tr Aquarius Mars in my 1H. Tr Mars is also applying to my natal 1H Aquarius Chiron/7H Leo Uranus opposition. I interpret this as being my original and authentic self in public and in relationships. I’ve always appreciated the trining strength of my natal Mars fueling my intercepted Libra Sun.

  4. Jupiter is at 11 (right on the cusp of 5th and 6th house). Mercury is at 14 on the 6 th house.

    September 25th, full moon made me ashamed of myself. That was right on my 3 degree Libra Uranus (5th House).

    Please remember me in your prayers.

  5. 10th house,sextile my mercury,trine Juno,but inconjunct chiron/saturn and square my natal mars. I don’t see when could be the best moment to go back to work

  6. New Moon transiting my 12H at 29 Virgo 18′ square my natal Mars in Cancer 9th H. opposite Chiron transiting at 29 Aries 28′ Retro.

    Everything blew up on my birthday 9/25 even though I didn’t point my gun at anyone. I just don’t care anymore what happens.
