The New Moon in Libra, occurring on October 6th  at 4:05 a.m. offers a master class on tact, diplomacy, and compromise. If you know both your rising sign and sun sign, please read both horoscopes. You’ll know which one resonates more for you from week to week. Take what works for you, and leave the rest. 

ARIES AND ARIES RISING: It looks like a relationship is emerging for you—All you have to do is be yourself and don’t overthink it. What you’re looking for is right around the corner. During this New Moon, be clear on your intentions: What do you value in a partner?

TAURUS AND TAURUS RISING: Blessings keep falling on your lap—look at that! Suddenly, you are being revisited by an old work opportunity or coworker. Be willing to show how much you’ve grown over the past few months. What’s old can become new and result in a much-needed advancement within your career. Be patient!

GEMINI AND GEMINI RISING: Spend this New Moon with your eyes closed and your palms open. Allow for ideas, spirit, and soul to enter your essence. You are human and alive, which means that your mind is overflowing with a collection of experiences and sensations. Draw from what you know and create something magical. The New Moon is on your side.

CANCER AND CANCER RISING: Allow the light to come into your home, Cancer. If your space is feeling empty, fill it with roses and candles. Beautifying your home is exactly the boost you need to make the most of this New Moon energy. Mercury Retrograde is bringing up old memories, but within the comfort of your room, you are capable of processing anything.

LEO AND LEO RISING: You won’t produce the results you desire overnight, and that’s okay. This New Moon is prompting you to reinvent your style. Take some time to look through your wardrobe and figure out how you want to communicate yourself to the world. Mercury Retrograde is helping you recognize how you’re perceived by others, and it’s time to enhance what you’re working with.

VIRGO AND VIRGO RISING: The New Moon in Libra is helping you attract what you’ve long sought after. If you’ve had a desire in mind, you can rest assured that you’ll be able to attract it with no issues. You might not be able to appreciate your new toy in the immediate future, but at least you’ll have it!

LIBRA AND LIBRA RISING: There is so much going on for you! Between the New Moon, your solar return (happy birthday!!!), and Mercury Retrograde, there is full focus on you! Take this time to attract your interests through being what you desire. Try not to overcommit to others—you are your priority for right now.

SCORPIO AND SCORPIO RISING: The key to this New Moon is to mind your emotions. You are the type to stifle your feelings, and that pattern derives from your childhood experiences. Thankfully, you’re allowed to own up to what bothers you and take the appropriate actions afterwards. Use your words and speak up.

SAGITTARIUS AND SAGITTARIUS RISING: Lucky you! New opportunities are opening themselves to you, specifically in the realm of presentation. Make sure you take yourself seriously because the words you say now could lead to scrutiny. If you are careful and thoughtful, you have the potential to make a lasting impact.

CAPRICORN AND CAPRICORN RISING: A new project is coming your way quickly! It’s right up your alley and will have significant rewards. The only problem is that it won’t come easily. Patience and commitment are key. Even though you may want to rush it, it’s best to take things one step at a time.

AQUARIUS AND AQUARIUS RISING: Are you ready to be schooled? A new lesson is waiting for you just around the corner. It’s not uncommon for you to collect accounts of other people’s experiences—this enables you to better understand the world and those in it. But during the New Moon, you’re being challenged to reflect on what you’ve learned and face some difficult truths about yourself.

PISCES AND PISCES RISING: As the Moon joins the Sun in the sign of Libra, you will be presented with reason to push beyond your current state of being. You’re no stranger to change—living in a continuous state of suspension and mutability is familiar to you. While the ushering in of new energy can be different, trust that it is necessary for your personal transformation.


FOUR OF CUPS: Upright Four Of Cups. When the Four of Cups turns up in a Tarot reading, new invitations and opportunities are flowing to you, but for now, you’re saying “no” and turning them away. Perhaps the prospects do not interest you, or your cup is full, or you already have too much on your plate. Use your discernment to decide on what is truly important to you, and don’t be afraid to decline new projects that don’t align with your future path.The Four of Cups can also indicate a time when you are turning your attention and your energy internally, to realign to this new phase of your life. You know that you need to be standing on terra firma before you can decide your next steps.

While you may need to decline some very alluring opportunities, you do so knowing you will be in a better position to say ‘yes’ to the opportunities that are a better fit for you. You are creating the space within yourself so that you are ready to accept new opportunities later and give them the best possibility of success. Use this time for inward reflection, grounding, and contemplation before accepting the next ‘big thing’. Sometimes this card brings the message, ‘Not now, but maybe later.’ While the man in the Four of Cups doesn’t accept the cups offered to him, he doesn’t wholly reject them either. You may be waiting for a sign or further information before taking an invitation or new project. Check in emotionally and spiritually before you say ‘yes’, to make sure the opportunity is a good fit and that you can commit to it in the long-term.The Four of Cups can appear when you are bored or dissatisfied with your everyday life. You may feel disengaged, apathetic or unmotivated – maybe life has become dull.

The Four of Cups invites you to bring your attention inward and re-evaluate your situation to find a deeper meaning in what you do. You may have found yourself disconnected from your emotional self and inner truth, and need to re-establish this connection so you can get a greater sense of purpose and direction. Now could be an excellent time to switch off from the distractions of the external world – social media, the news and other people’s stories – to allow you the space to listen to your own voice and inner knowing and gain more clarity.The Four of Cups may show that you have shut yourself off from new opportunities because you have been hurt or rejected before. The man in this card has his arms crossed as if protecting himself and closing off from the external world. You may have had a relationship end in heartbreak or experienced failure in your career and now want to avoid getting in the same predicament again. However, you may miss out on new opportunities that are an excellent fit for you. Check in on a soul level and question whether shutting yourself down is the best course of action, or if it’s time to open up to the possibilities available to you.

Reversed Four Of Cups. The Four of Cups reversed reflects a period of introspection and withdrawal. You are retreating into your own inner world so you can concentrate on what is integral to you and what grounds you. Others may want to spend time with you or invite you out, but you’d prefer to stay in and read a good book or meditate in your sacred space. Just be careful that you don’t shut off your friends and loved ones or appear disinterested in their lives. Let them know you need some alone time and that you’ll reach out again when you’re ready to re-emerge.If you are feeling withdrawn, don’t force yourself to go out. Just ‘be’ in this space, and when you’re ready, start to re-integrate with the world around you. You won’t be a ‘hermit’ forever – it’s just a temporary state of being. Appreciate it and make the most of it.You may use this time of introspection to check in with your inner self to make sure your upcoming projects and endeavors are a good fit. Instead of saying ‘yes’ straight away, step back and assess the situation first. That said, be careful that you don’t lose this opportunity as you wait for an answer.

Check for an expiry date or deadline and be sure not to miss it.At times the Four of Cups reversed suggests that you feel uninspired, disillusioned, or disappointed with the world around you. Everything seems hard, and instead of dealing with it head on, you’re choosing to retreat. You may avoid the challenges of the external world hoping that if you step out, the problems will go away. But let’s be real: they will need your attention eventually.The Four of Cups reversed might mean you are reluctant to open your heart to someone or to express your true feelings, choosing to withdraw and isolate yourself from the other person instead. Be mindful of how this could impact those who are close to you and consider their needs along with your own.
