KEY WORDS: Venus, Relationships & Finances
Two eclipses bless us with their catalytic energies this month: a solar eclipse on 14 October in the sign of Libra and a lunar eclipse on 28 October in the sign of Taurus. Both Libra and Taurus are ruled by the planetVenus, so expect news, developments and changes in your relationshipsandfinances.Venus, currently passing through Virgo and forming a beautiful Grand Earth trine with Pluto in Capricorn and Uranus in Taurus, shines her protective, nurturing light on these cosmic events.
The solar eclipse in Libra on Saturday, 14 October at 19:55 is one of the best opportunities of the year to set intentions around relationships. It offers a fresh start of some kind, either in an existing or a new relationship, which aligns with your actual needs. Reflect on and clarify what you truly want: experiencing a different kind of partnership, making peace with someone, harmonising your environments, negotiating better balance in relationships, etc. This Aries/Libra eclipse series kicked off with a total solar eclipse on 20 April 2023 and extends to 29 March 2025. By the end of this period, a complete transformation is possible.
The lunar eclipse in Taurus on Saturday, 28 October at 22:24 brings results to actions taken over the last 18 months. As the final eclipse on the Taurus/Scorpio axis until 2031, this series has impacted income and finances, material possessions, personal values and diet (Taurus areas), as well as resources shared with others, loans and credit, karmic patterns, and sexual intimacy (Scorpio areas). So decisions and actions taken around these matters are coming to fruition or culmination. If this means an ending in one of these areas for you personally, it should ultimately be a happy one: Jupiter, the planet of expansion and opportunity, conjuncts this lunar eclipse. However, expect grumblings or resistance from people who may not see things the way you do. Mars and Mercury sit on the opposite side of the see-saw, near the Sun in Scorpio, stirring the pot!
