Despite the fact that many often restrict Libra to solely fun, flirtatious and bubbly energy, the beginning of fall equinox and the introduction to October 2020 is sure to be filled with some spooky tricks – or treats – depending on how you choose to work with this energy. 🎃👻
Tomorrow, October welcomes us with a full harvest moon in Aries and then closes out the month with another full moon on the 31st – Halloween. If a month contains 2 full moons, the 2nd one is considered a “blue moon,” which gives us a second chance to tie up any loose ends or revisit any lessons you may have looked over. Astrology always teaches us that everything happens in cycles, so consider October a double-dose of fully surrendering to the idea of releasing things that no longer serve you.
Additionally, October 14 marks the beginning of Mercury retrograde in Scorpio while Mars is still retrograde in Aries. Mercury Rx Scorpio may bring some emotional intensity and obsessive curiosity towards communication, mental processing, and the hunt for ugly truths, but the energy of Mars Rx in Aries may help temper the urge to serve any Scorpion-style revenge under the guise of delivering Libran justice.
Confrontational influences of Scorpio, Mars, and Aries during harmonious Libra season may bring some conflicting feelings. Libran energy may have you biting your tongue in order to keep the peace, but both Mars-ruled signs Scorpio and Aries might not want that sharp tongue to go to waste. Pause, reflect, and transmute any feelings of frustration into something won’t initiate self-destruction. Do you want to initiate vindictiveness towards others, or do you wish to vindicate yourself?
Tomorrow’s full moon in Aries is also another learning lesson: where full moons symbolize letting go and bringing things to a close, Aries wants to get things started. Use tomorrow’s full moon energy to reflect on things left unfinished: is it worth letting go of, or does it deserve a second chance? Figure out what you’re ready to say goodbye to so you can clear a path for new opportunities and endeavors to come in. We are in a constant state of evolution – you can choose what yours will look like.
