The new moon of October is coming up and it is going to be changing a lot of things for each and every one of us. While you might not always know what to expect from the celestial world, this event could potentially heal you if you understand its power.

This new moon is going to occur on the 8th of October and will be cleansing your life big time. Any and everything that you have been allowing to hold you back is going to melt away. Cutting ties with toxic people is going to finally become easy and you’re going to begin to find yourself in more ways than you ever thought you could.

This new moon is going to be square Pluto and because of that things might feel a bit dramatic but don’t worry, it will pass within reason. You might become quite frustrated when it comes to really getting things done but if you stay persistent nothing will be able to stop you. For those who do not know, new moons are always representations of new beginnings. They bring forth the things that we need to begin a cycle for something positive.

Astrology King wrote as follows in regards to this new moon and how it will be conjunct Ceres:

Minor planet Ceres rules motherly love, female reproductive issues, family bonds, and relationships. As a virgin goddess, Ceres represents independent single women and sole parents. As a grain goddess, Ceres rules the growing of plants and food crops, the harvest, natural resources, and the environment.

So New Moon October 2018 should make you more sympathetic and comforting towards your family and especially children. You may want to care for others but don’t forget to nurture yourself. Showing your warm and protective nature can also make you more attractive to your partner or potential partners.

The October 8 new moon will focus attention on the rights and freedoms of single mothers and working mothers. Social discussions and political debate in this moon phase will include parenting styles, custody rights, maternity leave, childcare, and equal pay.

The environment and climate change should also be topical, and how they affect food production. Other planetary aspects mentioned below also point to concern about chemicals like pesticides, plastic packaging and growth hormones. Then there are the effects of genetically modified foods, excessive amounts of sugar, and even more suspect practices of multinational food corporations.

While this deals more so on the side of emotional transformation, it is a transformation nonetheless. We will all be changing in more ways than you might expect. You will be in control of things but you also need to be able to let go of your ego to continue forward. Cleansing your life is not going to be easy but it is going to be beneficial.

This Libra new moon is going to bring forth a lot of problems for you but also a lot of solutions. Don’t let yourself get too in over your head. Things are never as bad as you might think. Remember that if you need a break there is nothing wrong with taking one. These energies will be around for a few weeks and you need to make the most of them.
