The celestial events in the ever evolving Universe serve as powerful mirrors that can reflect happening within our lives. This Libra Solar Eclipse is no exception. The transformative New Moon occurring on October 14 brings the promise of profound shifts in energy, balance, and relationships. New Moons represent the start of a new lunar cycle that ushers in fresh beginnings and opportunities. Solar Eclipses-which can only occur during a New Moon when the luminaries are in close proximity to a transiting node often intensify the effects, which become a significant catalyst for change.

Libra the harmonious and diplomatic zodiac sign ruled by Venus is all about balance, relationships, and fairness.

South Node Eclipses in this sign are known to trigger personal and/or global events that release, weaken, or relax things from the past in areas related to partnerships, contracts, laws, negotiations, or social, race, gender and class relations. Eclipse events are sudden and unexpected, typically occurring within 1-4 weeks after the New Moon. However, anything ruled or influenced by Libra could be stimulated at this lunation, and you may find yourself forced into having to make an important decision within the next 90 days, or even within the next year. Those who have significant placements within 5 degrees of 21° Libra, or any of the other Cardinal signs; Aries, Cancer & Capricorn, are more likely to experience the affects of this eclipse on a personal level. As such, this very special New Moon is set to shine a spotlight on these areas of life inviting each of us to explore and transform them.

It is believed that Eclipse effects are more powerful for those who live in the path of visibility. This annular solar eclipse will cross North, Central, and South America. It will be visible in parts of the United States, Mexico, and many countries in South and Central America.
