The Solar Eclipse in Libra 2023 will be here on October 14th at 1:55 PM EDT. A Solar Eclipse happens when a New Moon sits directly between the Earth and the Sun, casting a shadow on Earth. This particular Eclipse is an “annular Eclipse,” which means ring-shaped. The Moon is smaller now, so it does not cover the Sun. Instead, a slim ring is visible called the “ring of fire.” The path of the Solar Eclipse will travel over part of the United States and South America. If you ever wanted to view an annular Eclipse, this might be the perfect time!
Eclipses are the “wild cards” in astrology. Someone once compared a Solar Eclipse to a “New Moon on steroids.” That’s a perfect way to describe it. The energy is intense and unpredictable. Instead of setting intentions and planting seeds, it’s better to go with the flow and see what happens. Above all, do not push for outcomes or attempt to hold on too tightly. Remain patient until the dust settles a few days later. You’ll have a better idea of your next step.
In the sign of Libra, issues around relationships, justice, and peace will be on the table. Endings and beginnings are possible, but it will take time to see how things shake out. For example, a relationship may finally break off, and a new one may emerge shortly after. Trust that the timing is correct if anything or anyone gets “eclipsed” out of your life. Libra is centered around “we,” so be ready to meet people where they are rather than focusing on “me.” Of course, this Eclipse is ideal for setting new boundaries if you are a people pleaser. Whatever the case, expect significant shifts in key partnerships around this day.
This Solar Eclipse is surrounded by challenging aspects, so you’ll want to exercise caution on this day. An opposition with Chiron occurs in the morning, which could shed light on old wounds. This would be an excellent time to explore where you need to heal. Later in the evening, Mercury will oppose Chiron, an aspect that could open up the possibility of talking it out. However, this aspect could also be triggering, leading to unproductive conversations or negative thinking. It’s best to be tender with yourself and others. Rather than ripping open those wounds, treat them carefully.
At this time, volatile situations are happening around the world. Libra wants peace, but there needs to be compromise. The Solar Eclipse may illuminate a way to end conflict. This day could mark a turning point if an agreement can be reached. If that doesn’t happen, situations could remain tense until the next Eclipse arrives late in the month. It’s also surrounded by difficult aspects, so expect a rocky road before resolution.
Lastly, Solar Eclipses can bring a fresh start. If you don’t like your current path, a new one may appear. Your metamorphosis is straight ahead. Skoden!
