How to Use the October New Moon in Libra to the Fullest!

The moon has a magical pull on all the elements, the ocean, and even animals. Why wouldn’t it have a powerful effect on humans as well? 

With each lunar phase, we can all feel the collective shift of energy and learn something new about the transitions we are undergoing. Just call the moon your intuitive clock! Use the power of this planetary force to help you manifest your greatest dreams and release any challenges that are stopping you! This new moon lunar phase happens once a month, and is a great check in point for your goal setting list. 

October is a month of reflection, our first full month of autumn. October’s theme is about enjoying our harvest and all the things we planted throughout the year. The new moon will occur on October 6th in Libra! New Moons are perfect for manifesting new ideas, opportunities, and intention setting. Libra is a cardinal air sign, a self starting energy represented by the divine scales. Libra creates balance and harmony everywhere it goes. It seeks out justice for all and believes in the karmic balance of the universe. Libra is also ruled by our love planet, Venus. One on one connections, platonic and romantic, are highly important to this social sign. Libra knows we cannot progress forward without our relationships to support us along the way. 

With this New Moon phase, bring more intentionality to your partnership and relationship sectors of life. What type of love and reciprocity are you trying to manifest? Who do you want to team up with to make your dreams into a reality? Align yourself with people who inspire you and have a similar vision for the future. Approach tough conversations with compassion and a willingness to listen. The goal is to come to a compromise, not to win every argument! Allow yourself to see the world through a beautiful lens and appreciate the love that surrounds you.


Here are some tips on how to utilize this Libra New Moon energy to its fullest:

  • Make time to indulge in pleasure and yourself. Libra loves aesthetics, beautiful surroundings, and luxury. Prioritize making your external world as gorgeous as your inner world. Pamper yourself for a job well done on your journey! 
  • Network and socialize with like minded people! Put intentionality into connecting with others who can elevate you and help move you forward in life. Your social circle reflects where you are going and how you will be getting there. You will be surprised at how much opportunity comes from new connections this moon phase!
  • Root for the underdog! Whether it be approaching conversations with compassion, or opening yourself up to a second opinion, aim for peace in all communication. Get behind a cause you believe in and pay your good energy forward! You never know who’s day you will make by lending a listening and insightful ear to the conversation.
