Discover how the Solar Eclipse on October 14, 2023 at Libra 21 08′ at the South Node marks the start of the first eclipse in the second eclipse season of 2023.
2023 2nd Eclipse Season
There is a Solar Eclipse on October 14, 2023 at Libra 21°08′ at the South Node
This marks the start of the first eclipse in the second eclipse season of 2023. In two weeks, there will be a lunar eclipse.
Almost every year has two eclipse seasons, and 2023 is following this pattern. Eclipses happen when the Sun comes near (within 18 degrees) to one of the Moon’s nodes.
Solar eclipses occur when the Sun gets close to a lunar node and the Moon aligns with the Sun. The lunar nodes are points where the paths of the Sun and the Moon intersect.
Now, let’s talk about synodic cycles. Solar eclipses mark the beginning of a new synodic cycle between these celestial bodies.
What does this mean for you? Solar eclipses blend your needs and desires, bringing focus to what truly matters. They create opportunities for starting fresh with new projects, relationships, or activities.
To understand how this eclipse at 21 degrees Libra may impact you, take a look at your birth chart. Pay attention to which house it falls in and any connections to other planets or points. This will help you grasp its specific effects on your life.
Eclipses occurring at the south node of the Moon carry the theme of releasing and letting go. This release can involve attitudes, clutter, or beliefs that no longer serve a purpose in your life. South node eclipses offer you the opportunity to shed unnecessary baggage.
By letting go of these things, you create space for more valuable and meaningful experiences that are on their way to you. South node solar eclipses signify the importance of making room in your life for new opportunities and growth. It’s like decluttering your physical and mental space to allow new possibilities to enter.
Remember, if you hold onto the past (associated with the south node), there won’t be much room for fresh beginnings. It’s essential to choose wisely and consider not just how you manage your time but also your energy.
For instance, if you’re thinking about getting a new puppy (which is a symbol of a solar eclipse, representing new beginnings), you’ll need to clear some space in your daily routine (related to the south node). This might mean allocating time for a half-hour walk with your furry friend. In doing so, you open up space in your life for this new and joyful experience.
Solar Eclipse Aspects
This eclipse is closely linked to Mercury, which is quite common, as Mercury often aligns with the Sun.
The fact that Mercury is in close proximity to the eclipse degree suggests that there may be extensive discussions regarding the themes this eclipse brings to light.
Mercury’s presence in Libra indicates a tendency to be diplomatic and avoid confrontational speech. It’s important to consider all available options and maintain harmony with your partners and those close to you.
Thoughtfully selecting your words can play a strategic role in smoothly implementing new plans and avoiding resistance.
The eclipse forms a square aspect with Pluto, indicating that the transformation highlighted by the eclipse might have profound and far-reaching consequences, potentially leading to a significant transformation in your life.
This impact is likely to be even more pronounced if the eclipse aligns closely with one of your planets or significant points in your birth chart.
Additionally, the eclipse loosely opposes Chiron, indicating the possibility of encountering resistance or opposition to your intentions during this eclipse.
It’s worth noting that Chiron’s influence can sometimes make you feel vulnerable or less confident in your abilities. It may even trigger imposter syndrome, where you doubt your qualifications or worthiness when dealing with these celestial transits.
This solar eclipse carries the potential for significant transformation in your life.
It’s essential to observe what unfolds on the day of the eclipse, which falls on October 14th.
The impact of this eclipse is expected to last for approximately three months from the date of the eclipse itself.
Typically, there is no noticeable shift in energy until the eclipse becomes exact.
