New Moon 30 October 2016 Dreamtime

New Moon October 2016 AstrologyThe new moon on Sunday 30 October 2016 is at 7 degrees Scorpio. The new moon October 2016 astrology is dreamy and optimistic. This comes as most welcome relief following the heavy going nature, to say the least, of recent eclipses and major planetary aspects.

New moon October 2016 aligns with Mercury to make communication a major theme. A trine to Neptune brings spiritual communication, hopefulness and charity. This is certainly the best moon phase I can remember for some time, and hopefully just a taste of better times ahead.

New Moon Meaning

A new moon represents the end of one cycle and the beginning of a new 28 day cycle. Sun conjunct Moon means all possibilities are on the table. You can rightly put yourself in the forefront of new plans for the future. Old habits, behaviors and beliefs can be questioned as you search for new and inventive ways to make progress. This is the ideal time to make a fresh start and write down a to-do list.

The influence of a new moon lasts for four weeks up to the next new moon, in this case, until the November 29 new moon. The best time for making a fresh start and for beginning new projects is during the first two weeks of a new moon cycle. This waxing phase of the moon lasts from October 30 to the November 14 full moon.

New Moon October 2016 Astrology

The October 30 new moon at 07°43′ Scorpio is the first regular moon phase in a new eclipse cycle. The September solar and lunar eclipses were very negative with challenging aspects to the traditionally malefic planets Mars and Saturn. Therefore, it is so important that we get a good start from new moon October 2016.

A new moon conjunct Mercury is neutral for good or bad but the harmonious trine aspect to Neptune tilts the scales toward good. There are also some fixed stars involved that assist Neptune in making this new moon a positive spiritual experience.

Sun conjunct Mercury puts the focus on your thinking and communications, making this a very busy time mentally. Your mind will be on the ball which favors lots of interactions, clearing paperwork and bills, receiving and sending letters and emails, and short trips around town. Because you will be thinking and expressing yourself clearly, this is an ideal time to make plans and initiate business deals, bargain, and buy and sell.

Moon conjunct Mercury adds emotional sensitivity and changeable moods. You can more easily make close emotional attachments to other people, or enjoy reminiscing about the past with family members. Conversation with women and family members in particular will be emotionally nourishing.

Your emotionally sensitivity can lead to a strong intuition and even psychic abilities. Sometimes, this aspect alone results in biased impressions but the Sun involved with a trine to Neptune ensures more accurate psychic impressions, lucid dreaming, and clear vision into the future for making plans.

New Moon October 2016 Horoscope

New Moon October 2016 Dreaming

Dreams have always been associated with the Moon because she rules sleep, intuition and the subconscious mind. In modern astrology, dreams are ruled by Neptune because its discovery coincided with that of anesthetics and hypnotism. Some astrologers like myself also look to Mercury for dreaming because he is the messenger of the gods. With our new moon conjunct Mercury trine Neptune we have all three rulers of dreaming harmoniously linked.

Sun trine Neptune increases your sensitivity to your environment and your empathy for others. You gain a deeper and wider understanding of your place in the world. This will help you set goals to manifest your hopes and dreams for the future. Your ego benefits from a more spiritual outlook, enabling you to work hard on achieving success. Your path to success can be helped by a strong self belief and psychic impressions.

Moon trine Neptune sensitizes your emotions, imagination and creativity. You may dream up or fantasize about an ideal partner but are just as likely to meet someone special now. Relationships formed under this influence would have a soul mate feel to them. Your intuition should be especially strong now so you should pay extra attention to any psychic impressions. This would be a good time to schedule a Tarot or psychic reading, even a visit to a psychologist.

Mercury trine Neptune also stimulates your creativity, imagination, sensitivity and spirituality. All of your communication skills benefit from a non threatening, caring and soft influence. People will want to listen to you, especially in person because of a sensual type of attractiveness. All of your senses are finely tuned so you can communicate effectively at the non verbal level, through gestures, your eyes, and telepathically. Any psychic abilities will be enhanced and you intuition will be strong and accurate.

New Moon October 2016 Fixed Stars

Fixed star Khambalia at 07 ♏ 10 is only half a degree from the new moon. Its names comes from “Crooked Claw”, which symbolizes ancient knowledge that you can only access through altered states of consciousness like dreaming. An excellent star for deep research and investigation, espionage, and esoteric or occult fields like astrology.

Fixed star Acrux at 12 ♏ 05 sits just within range of Mercury. I still expect its influence to be strong with the new moon so close. You will find that conjunctions of planets, or stellium aspect patterns, tend to increase the orb of influence of any nearby fixed stars. Elsbeth Ebertin said the Acrux gives:

intuition, a grasp for the inner nature of one’s fellow man, a preference for occult studies, the gift of successful investigation of the hidden side of things, an inventive mind, and a deeply religious nature connected with mystical and theosophical interests.

The mystical nature of the fixed stars with the New Moon and Mercury are enhanced by the trine to Neptune. Now Neptune on fixed star Skat at 09 ♓ 06 causes idealism and psychic ability. Meaning “The Wish”, this star gives good fortune, lasting happiness and safety in a deluge.

The new moon, Mercury and Neptune each line up with a fixed star that is esoteric or mystical in nature and generally beneficial. Together they give a similar dreamy and optimistic outlook to the planetary aspects, the Mercury new moon trine Neptune. Access to your higher mind will lead to spiritual enlightenment and hope about the future. Depending on how this new moon aspects your chart, you could make a new start in a spiritual direction in any area of life, from following your true calling to meeting your soul mate.

To politicians we can only hope that new moon October 2016 brings greater empathy and understanding of the suffering of  so many at the moment. A new moon should promote new goals being set regarding refugees and immigration in general, but also foreign aid and disaster assistance. Neptune is the planet of socialism.

Mercury does suggest that meetings will be held and perhaps even agreements met. Putting then into action may be another matter with only a trine aspect and little help from Mars for initiative. Dreaming is a great first step but making your dreams come true does require some effort.

  1. Lovely moon phase. My natal Jupiter in 9 degrees of Cancer forms a grand water trine with Mercury and Neptune. Talk about dreamy.
    With Pluto in its last pass exactly opposing my natal Venus with orb 1 degree, it’ll be interesting how that will play out.

  2. I am looking forward to this one…”feels like home to me” love that song, anyway I have natal Neptune ati in 1st house in a grand trine with Mercury in Cancer and Chiron in Pisces, plus with Venus opposite Neptune, “I have a voice, quite a powrful one and with the trine it seems to be the voice of genuine “soothsaying” even if the psychic or prophetic truth is a warning of being ready for a.brilliant opportunity to embrace or a not good fhalle nge best forewarned and prepated for, it always flows with guidance to ease and work with it, so I am very relieved to hear that in some ways this may well be available through each and all at the basic level of Psychic, Medium and Empath we all have, sometimes the sting of the bee is painful, yet worth it for the sweetness of the honey and its healing gifts. Yes, quite inspired to be hopeful with this as we are rising to a more hive mentality 5th dimensionally from the pack, pod, flock mentality of the 3rd through 4tb. Thank you Jamie

      • Thank you also Jamie, I sense with this moon that not only is communication a major theme, it is also a somewhat majik theme, in the true sense of the word, to be honest with oneself about imposed by others or on oneself deep in the unseen layers of both emotional and thinking mind of limited structured restricted beliefs as to whether one is actually being a blessing or a curse in our expressing ouuselves, fear and war or love and peace in our relating within our own mind and inneralchemy. Its not always a nice thing to face, indeed sometimes it can feel so repulsive in the realisations it is quite nauseating, however, it is better out than in during a great purge such as this, just not spewing it over others lol!

  3. So much Neptune. It creates a “shit eating grin” the subject is losing terribly while feeling blissful. I could go on but will skip it. Instead I certainly hope you are correct. You have made a believer out of me concerning stars so maybe there is a positive outcome here. Crossing my fingers, and choosing optimism.

    • There has to be room for some good to come from Neptune as the square eases up. I’m counting on three close trine trumping one waning square.

    • heh heh. Neptune is as much delusion as it is illusion. Venus conjuncts Saturn, and the day before, on the 29th, Mars squares Uranus. Mars will have conjuncted Pluto on the 20th, Merc square Uranus on the 21st. I see war coming. The Mars/Pluto conjunction is just past the square to the Saturn in the Sibley chart for the US, at 14 Libra. Saturn rules the 2nd house in the Sibley chart. gulp. November 25th, Venus conjuncts Pluto…. death of the dollar?

    • I find to look like I am swallowing the bullshit yet spit it out without swallowing when in private by releasing whatvis emtionally rising and trying to express its repulsion helps with the delusion of Neptune and then of course the imaginings, be honest with yourself, what are you really imagining thus actually expecting, good or not? It will be and addiction to recreate a feeling and/or a habitual reaction, so not able to change until you know the unconscious behaviour, until it comes into the light consciously? Hope that helps, Neptune has huge potential to be 0ercieved as a blessing or a curse, require understanding of why it feels like a curse to make good of its blessed state instead, or so I have been finding.

  4. Wowzers! This is on my ascendant which is 8 deg Scorpio. It looks like a very powerful mystical new moon. I’m planning to run a circle with shamanic journeying 🙂 Thanks!

    • This is wonderful. I don’t think you could find anything better to do on this new moon. Please let us know how it turns out for you.

  5. I seem to have a lot of things going on now. This new moon is exact to my natal moon and a wider orb of 6 degrees from my midheaven and neptune. 😳

  6. Hi Jamie, This new moon conjuncts my natal Uranus ( 8°12′ Я Scorpio) and trines my natal Neptune (9°21′ Я Pisces)..
    What does this new moon have in store for me?
    Thanks !

  7. I have Saturn, Sun and Mercury at 7, 8 and 9 degrees Scorpio, so this New Moon will conjunct all three. In my 7th house. I hope that, given that my Midheaven is Capricorn and thus ruled by Saturn, the New Moon will be positive for my career. That is the key issue – everything else is great, my marriage, my house, I even got a cat which makes me happy. I want to change career track from the corporate world, to the not-for-profilt world, I need to work for a cause. I have ideas and I hope this is a new beginning. Anyway, thank you for your site and articles, I always look forward to your horoscopes more than any other on the web.

  8. This NM will trine my natal North Node in Cancer house V. It will be squaring my AC Aquarius and my DC Leo.
    Neptune is transitting my house I and the NM will land in my IX house Scorpio.
