It’s New Moon time! We just had a New Moon in October, and this energy is strong at the moment. Bring on the October New Moon horoscopes!
October is seen as the sign of work, health, and daily habits. It’s an Earth sign so it’s practical and focused, and a Mutable sign so it’s constantly on the move. That means this sign can get a lot done, and while we’re under its influence, so can we.
This is coming at the perfect time! Mars has been retrograde in Aries for a little over a week now, and both Mars and Aries rule energy, drive, and taking initiative. With Mars retrograde, this has slowed down or been difficult to get a grasp on.
Thanks to the October New Moon, we have a period right now where we can rediscover our productive sides, make use of energy we have, and actually get things done. This is energy you don’t want to miss out on!

New Moon in October Meaning
A New Moon occurs when the transit (moving) Sun and Moon come together in the same exact position in the zodiac. We have a New Moon every four weeks or so.
New Moon Periods Are:
- New beginnings
Mars retrograde throws a wrench in those plans though, so something brand-spanking-new may not be the right idea. Instead, it may be better to focus on:
- What has already begun and needs to be finished or picked back up
- Something old that you can re-attempt
- Something you can finish quickly
October New Moons come after Leo New Moons, which are times when we want to enjoy ourselves and have fun. With October, we get down to business again, pay attention to the details, and tackle the little tasks and chores that we left for another day under the Leo energy.
We recently published a whole article on the October New Moon, but here is a bit of a recap on what the New Moon in October is great for:
- Getting organized
- Adjusting your schedule to be more productive
- Finding ways to increase efficiency
- Improving structure and order
- Clearing out junk (physical, spiritual, mental, emotional)
- Breaking bigger projects down into smaller ones
- Pursuing work you’re passionate about
- Tending to your physical self and pursuing healing
- Performing routine maintenance
The energy lasts for about 2 weeks, but is especially strong this weekend (make sure to make your manifestation list! read these 5 law of attraction tips).
