This October starts with the Sun balanced in the beautiful Libra and moves through to watery Scorpio season. We are working with the energy of balance shifting into rebirth – a way to prepare ourselves to move through the shadows and start moving into the person we are meant to be.

The New Moon in Libra comes on October 6th. This New Moon starts the month off in a beautiful place of manifestation and relationships. This is a perfect time to work on interpersonal communications and any issues that may be ongoing in terms of friendships or family relationships. Libra keeps everything fair, so great resolutions to sticky problems are bound to come out from this time.

Towards the end of the month, we have both a Full Moon in Aries and the shift into Scorpio season shortly after. The Full Moon in Aries on October 20th calls us in to go all-in for our dreams. It wants no apologies for our desires, and it wants us to harness our creative energies.

October New Moon + Crystal Guidance

As always, the New Moon is a time to manifest. In the sign of Libra, it is a perfect sign to manifest those next-level moves that may have things to do with teamwork, negotiations, or partnerships.

This is a time of peace, both inner and outer. We need to make no compromises when it comes to boundaries and our own inner calm. It is time to do the things to keep ourselves and those close to us feeling safe. Discussions that challenge our beliefs with others can bring around great change and big moves this season.

October Full Moon + Crystal Guidance

After the collaborative, balanced Libra New Moon, we move into an intense, fire-fuelled Full Moon in Aries on October 20th. Aries is pure passion, beginning with a no-nonsense feeling of knowing exactly what we want and fighting like hell for it. The release that we feel on the Full Moon is supercharged by the creative energy that fuels us forward towards our clearest manifestations. 

We must be careful that we are not too impulsive during this Moon because we enter Scorpio season shortly after. Deep and watery Scorpio can very quickly squelch out any passion and confidence with emotional self-doubt – so make sure that the things we are dashing towards in the Full Moon are in complete alignment.
