Horoscopes for the week of Oct. 17, 2017 to Oct. 30, 2017:

This week’s New Moon energy comes to your First House of new beginnings. No matter what your sign, every New Moon cycle is excellent for getting something started. Most astrologers would agree that the New Moon vibrations will be with us, from the date of the New Moon — Thursday, Oct. 19, 2017 — through about five days after. Because this cycle will activate your First House, I am very curious to know what you want to get off the ground, Libra.

I say “want” because you might not feel confident about pushing through a wall of resistance that’s getting in the way of giving birth to this thing in the physical world. Starting something requires putting one foot in front of the other, but what if your feet hurt? What if you have a sprained ankle and someone has given you a pair of cement shoes?

Consider this: What if what you want and what you’re attracted to is in perfect alignment with your highest Self and “Soul Purpose,” and you can feel it with your entire body and spirit. What if your deepest yearning says, “THIS IS IT!” but your would-be partners are resisting, and your basic need to put food on the table is saying, “You’re going to be totally screwed if you do that!” Part of you might feel like this, Libra. But the New Moon is here. And it has a revolutionary spirit that’s saying, “Let’s blow it up. Let’s break the rules. Let’s find a way to start this thing in spite of the resistance because (WOW!) it’s going to be a positive, good, joyous and prosperous thing!”

I don’t know what resistance you’re actually facing. I can only describe the abstractions. I think you’re tying to do the following things at the same time:

  1. Honor your need for security, your need to feel safe, your need for planning, and your need to be cautious and take things slow.
  2. Honor the awkward complaints, concerns, winnings, insecurities, hurts and wounds of your partners.
  3. Honor the deep yearning behind what you want to do. Honor the intuitive energy you have at your disposal to take a leap of faith into the unknown without thinking (while still honoring 1 and 2).

If you can do all of the above at the same time, you’ll have achieved an incredible balancing act, the likes of which only a true Libran is capable of pulling off.
