Closing a Chapter - The Astrology of Eclipse Season October 2023

Updated: Oct 26, 2023

How has Eclipse season been treating you? The nodes of the Moon shifted to the Aries Libra axis so we saw the first Eclipse, a Solar Eclipse on the New Moon in Libra introducing new themes to a new group of people who may have been unaffected by the previous two years of Eclipses on the Taurus Scorpio Axis.

We are currently in the liminal time between the two eclipses when time seems to take on a different quality. For some, it can hang heavy, for others it is light and magical, events have a deeper meaning. I have helped friends through crisis breakdowns and also breakthroughs in this time. You are not alone if you have a feeling of things coming to a head or that you can't take any more. If you are feeling that something has to change, you are right. Lean into those emotions, maybe record your thoughts, even through your tears if needed, and you may find your own answer when you listen back. You may prefer to journal, but tears and writing are not always good partners. Alternatively, chat with a good friend over a cup of tea or coffee. Reflection can be really helpful right now.

We are in Scorpio Season and it is a time of digging really deep and exploring our deepest secrets, and suppressed emotions. Whatever surfaces now is ready for healing.

The partial lunar eclipse we are moving closer to on 28 October in Taurus closes a series of Eclipses in Taurus and Scorpio which began in 2021. This Eclipse Completes the chapter of that story in your life. It starts at 7pm in the UK and reaches its peak around 9.15pm.

Taurus is an earthly sign, Feminine, Yin and Fixed energy, grounded in stability and sensuality as it is ruled by beauty and harmony loving Venus. The Moon is Exalted here, which makes this the most prominent of the Lunar Eclipse Signs.

The Lunar Eclipse in Taurus will encourage us to contemplate our material security and values. It will beckon us to plant the seeds of abundance and sustainability in our lives, grounding our aspirations in the fertile earth of Taurus.

Eclipses, in the ancient tradition, were considered powerful omens, heralding moments of destiny and transformation. In contemporary times, we consider them to mark significant beginnings and endings in our lives.

This particular lunar eclipse, while occurring in the sign of Taurus, is an "out of sign" eclipse, the Moon's nodal axis has recently transitioned into Aries, making the eclipse Partial. The Aries placement, ruled by action oriented Mars indicates fated new beginnings, even as we are prompted to release the old stories.

The Moon opposes Mars and Mercury in Scorpio, signifying an intensified emotional and communicative time, embodying the element of water. The Eclipse invites us to embrace catharsis and to speak our deepest truths. Allow your intuition to guide you.

Those with major astrological placements in Scorpio, Leo, Aquarius, or Taurus may feel this most. This includes Sun, Moon or Rising as well as other Personal Planets.

Is there a truth you've been withholding, a feeling you've suppressed?

The solar eclipse in Libra has passed two weeks before, 14 October. Eclipses always happen in pairs. For the next two years we can expect the next chapter to hold a story that impacts the Aries and Libra areas of our natal chart. This new series of Eclipses are likely to most impact the Cardinal signs Aries, Cancer, Libra and Capricorn.

In Libra, the sign of balance and relationships, the Solar Eclipse prompted us to reevaluate the dynamics of our partnerships and seek equilibrium. It may unveil hidden truths and illuminate the path to harmonious coexistence.
