Just like life, astrology seems to ebb and flow in waves of intensity and calm. As we step into our second Eclipse Season of the year, we are invited into the high tides of inner and outer transformation.
When is Eclipse Season 2023?
October welcomes Eclipse Season with a Libra New Moon Solar Eclipse on 14 October 2023, and a Taurus Full Moon Lunar Eclipse on 29 October 2023.
What is an Eclipse?
Eclipses are an alignment of the Sun, Moon, Lunar Nodes, and the Earth.
While we are familiar with the dance of the Sun and Moon that brings us a New and Full Moon every 28 days, Eclipses occur when the Moon reaches its upper and lower thresholds of its tilted elliptical orbit – these boundaries that represent the Lunar Nodes.
When the Moon reaches these thresholds and comes into partnership with the Lunar Nodes, it also forms a perfect alignment with the Sun and Earth. It is here that the new Moon becomes a Solar Eclipse, and the full Moon a Lunar Eclipse.
This interaction with the Lunar Nodes are what makes Eclipses so special.
The Lunar Nodes in Astrology, made up of the North Node and the South Node, represent destiny, purpose, and evolution. As the Sun – representing our spirit, inspiration, and life force – come into alignment with the Moon – our intuitive nature, inner truths, needs, and emotions – and the Earth – the land upon which we bring our destiny into reality – this sense of purpose that the Lunar Nodes hold within them seems to have a gateway to travel through, a portal through which they can be heard, through which our call of destiny, alignment, or evolution can reach us.
As we look back on our life’s journey, there are often moments in time where our direction took a clear shift.
Perhaps something ended or a new journey began. We meet the beginning and end of chapters in our lives so much so that we could say we have lived multiple lifetimes in the one whether these changes were initiated through blissful moments of joy, or our deepest cracking open.
Eclipses are often at the heart of these changes. Where what is for us is as clear as what is not for us. Where the voice of guidance – whether that be soul, higher self, intuition, God, or destiny – seems to get louder, clearer, felt deeper in our bodies than before. Where that voice meets us both from within – speaking through our emotions, ideas, or knowing, and our outer reality – though changes thrust upon us that it could seem we have no say in.
Change seems to be at the core of Eclipse Season, as does some kind of greater purpose. They bring the kind of cracking-open that when we look back on, seem to be the very doorway into everything good, whole, and real that follows for years to come.
And while we may not always see the purpose within the changes of the moment, there is an element of surrender being asked of us throughout this season, a trust that seeds are being planted in this very moment, regardless of whether we know what they will grow into or not.
Your Eclipse Season Invitation
There is an undeniable force of energy etched into the very fabric of this season. Eclipses are the divinity within transformation and the light that pours through the cracks of change.
Siting at the core of this season is a strength, a presence, a purposefulness, an alignment, and a transformation that seems to only bring us closer to who we are, and closer to life itself – whether that direction is felt in the moment or reveals itself further along the path.
And if we know anything about transformation, it is that we cannot control it. We cannot orchestrate it, just as we cannot journey through it only with the mind. It is within transformation that we are often led to our edges where the only option from there is to unclench our hands, breathe out, allow, trust – in ourselves and life – and to open to what is coming in.
While we many may say that change is difficult, we can also say that all we know is change. We know this terrain, for we have been journeying it for as long as we have been breathing. To go against change is to go against our nature.
This Season, can you look back to moments in your life that seemed to be the doorway into your greatest transformation?
Can you witness how you moved through these tides of change, what was born in you in those moments, and how your life shifted from then on?
Can you speak your deepest dreams into the ethers, and listen deeper than ever to your voice of guidance?
And can you keep the intentions of this season – more you, more love, more truth, more fulfilment, more purpose, more creation, more depth, more divinity, and more connection – close to your heart?
