This cycle begins with the Sun and new Moon at 0° Scorpio 25′ and comes to fruition with the full Moon at 14° Taurus 26′.
Scorpio--a sign ruled by Mars and Pluto--is considered by many a dual sign. When the sign's lower nature is activated, its representative scorpion may act with cunning, willfulness, and sometimes spite. Its higher nature is represented by the eagle, showing courage, clear vision, and power (CafeAstrology).
With the Moon in Scorpio people, especially women, seek out emotional intensity and may be seen as drama queens. But a talent for sensing the truth of a matter or a person may also show up.
Each new Moon indicates the start of a new cycle with promise of new opportunities. It's a time to try out new or different directions. This is a good time for non-Scorpio people to look beyond appearances and work on seeing what's at the heart of a matter. About Scorpio people, Cafe Astrology says,
[They aren't] afraid of getting their hands (their bodies, their minds) dirty. The darker side of life intrigues them, and they're always ready to investigate.
There will be a partial solar eclipse at the new Moon. Pat at Real Astrologers discusses this eclipse and what she has to say is very interesting.
At the beginning of October on the 8th, there was a total lunar eclipse, coinciding with the full Moon in Aries. The effects of this eclipse may be delayed up to 6 months. For a summary of the news on that day, take a look at "10 things you need to know today: October 8, 2014" at The Week. These news items may be precursors or conclusions.
