Each cycle of the moon has a unique effect on us, and this is no less true for the new moon. That tiny, barely-there sliver in the sky you see (or, rather, don't see) in the sky is, astrologically, a time to let go of the old and start on something new, which is a pretty big deal. This month, we can expect a very dark night sky on Oct. 27, when the new moon rises in Scorpio. The October new moon is not just the beginning of a new cycle, but also the beginning of something new for you as well. So what does this mean for you individually? This lunar cycle will affect everything from the way you think about your goals and your past to the way that you sleep. If you're wondering how the October new moon will affect your sleep, you should look at your zodiac sign.
Everyone is going to feel something slightly different depending on their sign, but there are also some general things about this new moon to keep in mind. Bustle spoke to astrologer Lisa Stardust about it, who says, "The Scorpio new moon may cause anxieties to rise, which in result will have an affect on our sleep patterns." It makes sense, since Scorpio season (which will be going on during this new moon) makes us more introspective and thoughtful than usual — our thoughts are going to be intense enough to keep as awake. Stardust recommends, "Try disconnecting from technology an hour before bed (no matter what sign you are) to ensure a pleasant night’s sleep."
