New Moon in Libra Begins Water Dog Month

Nanis in loveNEW MOON in LIBRA

Friday October 4 at 5:34 pm PDT is a new Moon in the Air sign Libra. Libra rules the 7th house of marriage, partnership, and relationships. Focus this month is on loved ones, companions, friends, and even coworkers.

But relationship dynamics could be challenging. Both the Sun and Moon square Jupiter and Pluto and are opposite Uranus creating a grand cardinal cross. Plans could be too grandiose, and there could be compulsive rebellion against authority, or what is perceived as authority.

This grand cardinal cross slows down activity. But as we enter into winter of the Water Snake year, it’s time anyway to slow down. As soon as Wood Horse year arrives on the new Moon of January 30, 2014 we’ll be off to the races. For clarity during this cardinal cross time, now is opportune to call me at 415.642.8019 or email susan@susanlevitt.com to schedule your tarot or astrology reading.


This new Moon begins the month of the Water Dog, or black Dog. A Water month is lucky in this Water Snake year for an easier flow of energy. The element Water brings sensitivity and depth of feelings. Dog values honesty, loyalty, and integrity. Uphold these values this month, especially in relationships, to achieve success.

Luck to develop and maintain integrity of character is for everyone, and is most powerful for the Air signs Libra, Gemini, and Aquarius and those born in Dog, Horse, and Tiger years.

Happy new Moon,


Where Am I?
