October’s second new Moon occurs on October 30 in the US and October 31 in Australia. This is very much a Halloween type of new Moon, and the Symbol of The Silvery Moon Shining Across A Beautiful Gem Of A Lake is a reflection of the idea of Halloween, and, Halloween often falls on this degree. One can feel as though we are in, or witnessing, some kind of illusion, and, this is the time of the year when the veil becomes very thin. There are a few planetary positions that add to this theme on this new Moon.
This particular new Moon brings up the idea of projection, mirroring, and, the need for reflection about what is real and what is not.
With Venus and Saturn conjunct (together) in Sagittarius, we might be brought face-to-face with realisations, relationships, issues, etc, that we might not ordinarily want to deal with. This can be a time of decisions, especially around the issues of what we want in our lives, our values and ideals, our ways of fitting into the world. We might make some decisions that are rather life-changing, at least in some respect. This comes right after we’ve had Venus and Neptune squaring each other. It seems as if we’re looking at the dream and then the reality.
With Mars in Capricorn squaring Uranus in Aries, we might find ourselves up against a wall with regards to the status quo. We could find anger erupting, in ourselves, or, we might find ourselves witnessing anger rising up against the way we are being treated, left out, abused, or fed up with the machinations of government, the establishment, etc, or, constantly having to come up with money to keep our ships afloat.
We do, however, have this new Moon conjunct Mercury, trining Neptune, sextiling the Moon’s north node and trining the south node of the Moon. This can bring our ideals, our dreams and visions front and center of our minds and hearts, and, we could find ourselves formulating new ways of being – new ways of visioning and dreaming about the things that we want in our lives.
