Horoscopes for the Week of October 16, 2017

This week we have a New Moon in Libra, offering a cycle of developing relationship, seeking balance, harmony, and equanimity.  No ordinary Libra New Moon though, this one opposes Uranus which challenges Libra’s quest for balance. Uranus offers surprise, sudden change, breaking away. Uranus can also gift us with insight, genius, creativity, innovation. We may be shown where we need balance in our lives. We may be offered creative new ways to find harmony and engage with others. We may be challenged to find equanimity in times of change.

Aries

The Libra New Moon in your seventh house offers you an new cycle in relationship, partnership, and seeking balance. True harmony comes from courageously working with the shadow, with trauma, with pain. If these rear their heads, be strong, dear Aries, and see it as an opportunity for healing. Honour yourself and your own needs and from this place of connectedness, your relationships will blossom.

Taurus

The New Moon and new cycle lands in your house of work, service, and daily routine. With Uranus in your twelfth house, unconscious tendencies or thought patterns may rise to the surface at this time, possibly challenging the balance of your daily life. Deep healing and inner harmony can come from facing and integrating what rises from the depths of your mind.

Gemini

The New Moon ushers in a new cycle in your area of personal creativity and self-expression. This is a month for you to remember the value of play, pleasure, fun, and creativity.

You may also find yourself questioning which communities and groups really support your unique expression.

Cancer

The Libra New Moon is in your fourth house, bringing you home sweet home. This is a month to cozy up with loved ones, nesting, resting, and lounging in your domain: your home. With Uranus opposite the Moon, there may be some surprises that draw you away from home. Remember, home is where the heart is–take your sense of home with you and carve out moments wherever you are for tea, snuggles, or whatever warms your heart.

Leo

The Libra New Moon falls in your third house, activating the mind and your communication channels.

Virgo

The Libra New Moon activates your second house of values, self-worth, and income. Clarify what is most important to you, so you know where to invest your resources.

Uranus in your eighth house may offer you spiritual transformation, or perhaps a windfall.

Libra

This New Moon is in your sign, bringing the energy and vitality and focus home to you. Attend to yourself this month. What do you need, what do do you desire? How can you show yourself that you care?
