Global Hot Spot: The Libra New Moon on Wednesday October 6, 2021

By Mark Lerner

Dateline Tuesday October 5, 2021: For those of you who are now enjoying the Astrology Cosmic Kalendar App one day at a time – but who have not yet subscribed to be able to look several weeks into the future – here are the calendar entries for two very significant days (Wednesday October 6 and Thursday October 7). Because every day – beyond the current 24 hours that we define as one rotation of our celestial orb on its axis – has astro-zodiacal magic, mystery and wonder is why thousands of people around the world have been tuning into the Astrological Cosmic Kalendar for the last 40 years and since it was at the heart-center of our Welcome to Planet Earth pioneering astrology newspaper/magazine during the 1980s and 1990s.

The Libra New Moon can make an extraordinary impact in your personal life and for all of humanity. You can read more about this powerful solar-lunar monthly union – and the accompanying ultra-powerful station and shift from retrograde to direct by Pluto in Capricorn – in one of the two future calendar entries below as well as tune into the day after, October 7, when another group of celestial opportunities and challenges inundate the psychic atmosphere of humanity and the Sun unites with the red planet Mars in Libra. Please consider the merits of subscribing to the Astrology Cosmic Kalendar to strengthen your already developing skills as a seer who can tune into the future ahead of time.

For a wide variety of insights on both of these rather momentous days this month – particularly associated with the USA birth chart from July 4, 1776 – please listen to my podcast 87 (The Astrology of the Equinox, Planetary Stations & the Cosmic Intensity of October 2021) in the Mark Lerner Astrology Radio AstroScope podcast section on our website. In addition, the global map of key solar, lunar and planetary rising, setting, above and below lines around the world is presented at the start of this feature and the Libra New Moon horoscope calculated for Washington, D.C. is provided at the end of this feature.

Future Cosmic Kalendar Entries for Wednesday October 6 and Thursday October 7 (All times are listed in PDT.)

Wednesday October 6 Following the warnings pointed out in the last two calendar entries, brace yourself for an avalanche of cosmic intensity. Just prior to the arrival of the New Moon (energizing 14 degrees of Libra at 4:07am), the red planet Mars in Libra puts the kibosh on Uranus in Taurus via a questionable, 150-degree arc (2:28am). If this were the extent of today’s heavenly fireworks, the situation wouldn’t be too severe in stellar tone. However, later on the Sun — after moving on from its monthly rendezvous with the Moon — makes the same unsettling, 150-degree aspect to Uranus (4:12pm). Therefore, Uranian revelations, shocks to the system and overall head-scratching anomalies appear to suddenly abound. Now add on the dynamic potency of slow-moving Pluto stopping its several months of retrograde motion to station and go direct at 25 degrees of Capricorn (11:30am, but active all-day). And this isn’t the end of the retinue of celestial significance as the largest asteroid Ceres is slowing down in direct motion to become retrograde in Gemini on Friday, Venus and Mars battle via an abrasive, 45-degree link (8:45am), the Moon makes its monthly union with Mercury (2:41pm), and the Sun is poised to make a formidable conjunction with Mars tomorrow.

Focus your gaze on this list of Pluto archetypes as you go about your plans, tasks and errands during this one-of-a-kind 24-hour time-periods in 2021 – death-rebirth, regeneration and purification, metamorphosis, the underworld, extremes, mysteries and secrets, mega-wealth, plumbing the depths, research and investigations, spiritual willpower and mental concentration, psychology and hypnosis, deep-seated fears, abandonment and loneliness, phobias, atomic and nuclear energy, tyrants and terrorism. Do your best to avoid the traps of self-doubt and negative thinking – orchestrated by adversaries or created accidentally by your own karmic behavior in the past. (Pluto will remain direct until April 29, 2022 when it will station to go into reverse again at 29 degrees of Capricorn.) Be aware that a void lunar cycle begins at 10:04pm when the Moon squares Pluto and this twilight zone continues until 7:23am Thursday when the Moon enters the potent water realm of Scorpio. [Note to readers: All times are calculated for Pacific Daylight Time. Be sure to adjust all times according to your own local time so the alignments noted above will be exact for your location.]

Thursday October 7 Do yourself a favor and re-read yesterday’s calendar entry. Plus, remember that — as often indicated in this Cosmic Kalendar — major solar and planetary alignments on any day don’t just disappear 24 hours later. Instead, the most recent celestial seasonings fall into the subliminal realms of consciousness — allowing whatever is happening in the Eternal Now to take their place. Therefore, the profundity of Wednesday is still echoing through the psychic atmosphere of humanity. This day afterwards the Wednesday heavenly power-play is no pushover as the Moon in Libra is void until the lunar orb dives into the roaring rapids of water-intense Scorpio (7:23am). Love goddess Venus makes its shift from Scorpio to fiery Sagittarius (4:22am) during the void lunar zone in a cycle lasting until November 8.

Meanwhile, during the rest of this second-day-in-a-row of disturbing sky vibrations, usually comforting Ceres in Gemini (about to be motionless tomorrow) squares problem-solver Pallas Athena in Pisces (3:28pm) while a Venus-Pluto parallel (7:43pm) and the super-intense conjunction of the Sun and Mars at 16 degrees of Libra (9:02pm) deserve your undivided attention. What can save you from making unnecessary mistakes of judgment are Mercury in Libra forming a supportive, 60-degree alliance with peace-and-harmony advocate Juno in Sagittarius (9:07pm) and the monthly Moon union with investment-savvy, soul-sister Vesta in Scorpio (10:09pm). Like yesterday, this day is another one headed for everyone’s historical record books. Strive for serenity! [Note to readers: All times are calculated for Pacific Daylight Time.
