This part of the Orion Molecular Cloud ComplexM43, is the often imaged but rarely mentioned neighbor of the more famous M42. M42, seen in part to the upper right, includes many bright stars from the Trapezium star clusterM43 is itself a star forming region that displays intricately-laced streams of dark dust — although it is really composed mostly of glowing hydrogen gas. The entire Orion field is located about 1600 light years away.

October 6 Moon Goddess’ Current Phase, Northeastern and Northwestern Hemisphere Planetary Positions

Moon Goddess’ Current Phase

You can use this link to go forward or backward in time for Moon phase information. If you are curious you can even find out what phase the Moon was in when you or anyone else, you know was on the date the person was born. 

From Moongiant.com

The Moon’s current phase for today and tonight is a New Moon phase. During this phase the Moon is too close to the sun in the sky to be visible. The moon rises and sets with the sun and is not present in the night sky. Because of this the night sky is darker and an excellent time to view other celestial objects. Like the Full Moon, a New Moon happens at a very specific time when the sun and moon have the same ecliptic longitude and it can be measured down to the second it occurs.

Visit the October 2021 Moon Phases Calendar to see all the daily moon phase for this month.

OCTOBER 6 birthday horoscope predicts that you are a Libra who is a dutiful partner. Typically, idealistic you are a person who loves to have fun, but sometimes, you give the wrong impression about yourself. You have to learn to respect other people’s feelings.

Some people think that you are uncaring, but this is so far from the truth. You are just moody, and when this happens, you stay to yourself. Plus, you are a cautious individual who could benefit from spiritual guidance.

The October 6 birthday personality don’t like routines. You find day-to-day practices boring. This is not to say that you like drama or conflicts but rather that you are creative.

Librans, as a norm, like beautiful surroundings. You need to devote your time to doing things that matter and makes a difference. You look for security and what can give you the most pleasures out of life.

The October 6th horoscope predicts that it‘s not always easy for you to make a friend. But when you do, it‘s generally a lasting relationship. You don‘t have a lot of people who you call friends but those you do have, find you to be an unquestionably warm person.

You seem to take care of those around you as they are your own family. It’s nothing for you to go out of your way for someone who you care for. This is a part of your appeal.

Romance is prominent in your life, predicts the October 6th astrology analysis. As far as love goes, you can be capricious. As a Libra born today, you tend to flirt. This is only an innocent act if you are committed to someone.

You don’t have any intentions of committing acts of infidelity, but sometimes, you may feel as if you have no other choice. You would typically like a large family if you could financially afford to do so. You love having people around you.

The October 6th zodiac shows that you don’t like doing manual labor, but you are instrumental when it comes to handling details or paperwork. The better choice for this Libra birthday is a career that requires them to be hands-on like a jeweler or an artist. As an alternative, you are for justice so you’d make an excellent trial lawyer or therapist.

The career you choose as a person born on October 6 will likely be a hard decision. Because of your many talents and capabilities, you would do well in professions that allow you to be free, social and to use your teaching skills. Additionally, you could be your boss. You have the discipline to do it whereas others born under the same zodiac sign may not have those qualities.

Let’s talk about your negative personality traits. Classically, you are understanding of people and their ways and put up with their attitudes. This is good, but when you are left disappointed, it’s not so good.

The October 6th zodiac birthday person must realize that everyone is not your friend. Some people will take advantage of you and your kind spirit. With that being said, you like taking the risk.

To prevent boredom, you should get out more and do things that you would not ordinarily do. You tend to become complacent with your way of life if you don‘t take a risk every now and again. Other times, you can be controlling and incredibly hard to please.

As a Libra born on October 6, you need a certain level of security in your life financially, emotionally and physically. You have a spiritual nature, and you are likely to let your instincts guide you in decision-making. As a negative, you can be blinded by people’s deceiving ways. Remember that not everyone who smiles in your face wants the best for you.
