Fixed Star Spica, Alpha Virginis
The new moon on Thursday the 19th of October 2017 is at 26 degrees Libra. New moon October 2017 aligns with the two most fortunate stars used in astrology. Spica and Arcturus have always foretold wealth, honor and success.
The October 19 new moon is critically aspect by Uranus which means unexpected change is a major theme of this moon phase. Be open-minded and flexible to take advantage of some rare opportunities for riches and honor. The key to success is slow and patient plodding but there will be many temptations and distractions to overcome.
New Moon Meaning
A new moon represents the end of one cycle and the beginning of another new 28 day cycle. Sun conjunct Moon gives an invigorating burst of energy and initiative. This is an excellent time for making a fresh start, turning over a new leaf or starting a new project. You can also question old habits, behaviors and beliefs as you search for new and inventive ways to make progress.
The effects of the October 19 new moon lasts four weeks up to the November 18 new moon. The best time for making a fresh start and for beginning new projects is during the first two weeks of this new moon cycle. This waxing phase of the Moon lasts from October 19 to the November 4 full moon.
New Moon October 2017 Astrology
The October 19, 2017 new moon occurs at 26°35′ in the Sign of Libra. Due to the precession of the equinoxes, the Libra Sign is now aligned with the Virgo Constellation. The astrological meaning of the Zodiac Signs were originally taken from the Constellations bearing the same name. New moon October 2017 is actually in Virgo Constellation. In fact the main star of Virgo Constellation is at 24°04′ Libra Sign.
Alpha Virginis, fixed star Spica, is the most important star in the night sky for many cultures and religions. It marks the beginning and the end of the Sidereal Zodiac used in Vedic astrology. It may also be the reason the Sphinx has a Maiden’s Head and the body of a Lion. The Sun conjunct Spica, according to Robson , gives:
Great and lasting preferment, eminent dignity, immense wealth, great happiness to native’s parents and children, help from friends among clergy, favorable for public and legal affairs.
Spica is usually depicted as an ear of wheat in the left hand of the Virgin. Symbolically, this star is the Seed and it does sit next to her Womb. In medical astrology, Spica actually represents the naval in the human body.  Morse says that as the star of the grain harvest, Spica is the provider of our material needs, but he warns that you only reap what you sow. 
Fixed star Arcturus at 24°28′ Libra Sign is even closer to the new moon and like Spica, it brings riches, honors and prosperity. However, according to Ebertin, if Arcturus is critically aspected, the good influence will be hampered or made into a real handicap. 
New Moon Aspects to Uranus
In the chart above you can see that the new moon with Spica and Arcturus is critically aspected by Uranus. So in the case of new moon October 2017, your material needs will only be met if you have allowed for the unexpected changes Uranus can bring. As mentioned in the introduction, you should stay open-minded and flexible to enjoy the success, honor and riches offered by these two extremely fortunate stars.
New moon opposite Uranus brings unexpected and exciting encounters or events which can shake up your world. Adapting to rapid change requires extra effort and patience. Although initially upsetting and you may resist it, the change may offer a better way forward for you. Restlessness and impatience are likely. You could feel jumpy and impulsive but should avoid risky behavior.
A strong need for freedom can make you rebel against authority figures, restrictive parents or smothering partners. On the other hand, odd behavior or a radical about-face may come from a loved one. If you try to control them and curtail their freedom they will probably become more rebellious. Arguments or separation may result from impatience or unwillingness to adapt.
Whether self-inflicted or out of your control, how you react to change or restriction from new moon October 2017 is critical. Impulsive reactions and emotionally based decisions could turn a minor drama into total chaos. Avoid stirring up trouble just for the sake of it. Try not to annoy or tease a loved one just to get attention.
New Moon Aspects to Saturn
New moon sextile Saturn brings the patience and perseverance so needed because of Uranus. It improves relationships with authority figures and partners. It gives respect and common sense to make you think twice before taking silly risks or rebelling. A sense of duty and serious attitude make it easier to meet your new moon goals. It makes you determined to get practical results and make no mistakes.
Advancement and recognition are possible in your professional life if you work hard and stay patient. Stable Saturn will moderate the unexpected change and disruptive need for freedom caused by Uranus. Discerning Saturn will help you choose the right opportunities and go with the change that will best bring you practical results.
Saturn trine Uranus is increasing in strength as it approaches its third and last exact aspect on November 11, 2017. This is a transition phase that is ideal for making positive changes in your life. These changes should run smoothly and not be too upsetting or erratic. You will find new ways of doing old things without rocking the boat.
Mars quincunx Uranus increases the impulsive nature of this new moon and makes risk taking more dangerous. This aspect is associated with cuts, abrasions, burns and accidents in general. Be extra careful when using blades and firearms, and driving while angry. Use Saturn patience and caution to slow down and take your time making decisions.
New Moon October 2017 Summary
Uranus opposite the October 19 new moon means unexpected change and a rebellious streak could upset any area of your life. A helpful aspect to Saturn provides patience and common sense to avoid impulsive actions. It allows you to make unexpected changes work for you, and turn new opportunities into practical results.
The fixed stars Spica and Arcturus conjunct new moon October 2017 is a good luck omen for the next four weeks. This fortunate new moon has the potential to bring you wealth, honor and success. To unlock the treasures of Spica and Arcturus you must deal with unexpected change and impulsiveness. In fact, Sun conjunct Arcturus brings success only “through slow and patient plodding.”
