We are in eclipse season, and that might mean great or impactful endings and beginnings for you and those around you.
Eclipses happen in pairs every 6 months, a solar eclipse and a lunar eclipse. This season we see the solar eclipse (new moon) on October 14 and the lunar eclipse (full moon) on Oct 28
A little astronomy lesson - A solar eclipse happens when the moon comes between the earth and the sun. The shadow of the moon goes over the sun. A lunar eclipse happens when earth's shadow blocks sunlight from reaching the moon.
A new moon solar eclipse greets us Saturday, Oct. 14. This moon is like a super charged new moon with the effects being felt 6 months to a year after. Positioned on the moon's south node, we are being asked to release or let go of something from the past to make space for a new beginning. Eclipses bring emotional revitalization. So think of this as an up-cycle in your emotional development.
The sign of the eclipse is Libra, so we consider relationships, especially one on one, partnerships, diplomacy, justice, negotiations and balance. Maybe there is a relationship that is just done. So this event could open the door to letting go of this past partnership and how it makes you feel.
There is an interesting aspect to Chiron, so a deep wounding could get triggered in some way. But if you think of eclipses as evolutionary energies, maybe it’s time to evolve in some way. Libra is ruled by the planet Venus, so consider how your values may be changing or transforming.
Those most affected will have a natal planet in some sort of impactful relationship to the eclipse. The part of your life that may be affected depends on the house where this eclipse occurs for you. And that is the magic of astrology. A map just for you.

On a side note, you may have noticed I have become a night photography buff. This photo is from 19 Sept 2023. I spent part of the prior Winter through Spring trying to find the aurora around this post on the beach in northern Michigan. There was something about this foreground that I loved. Sept. 19th was the night it happened. I love the glow from the lights on the water, sand and grass.
