The LIbra Solar Eclipse disrupts the normal order of life in order to clear the way for a fresh pathway to emerge. It's occurring in the aftermath of the explosive Mars-Pluto square, which has inflamed powerful forces of dominance. Now more than ever, we need Libran diplomacy and cool heads to prevail, however, we could vacillate between indecisiveness as we attempt to be fair judges of the truth.
The eclipse is conjoined the South Lunar Node, opening a portal to the past - past allies, partners or relationship patterns can either lend a helping hand or remind us of shadows that need resolving. The days leading up to the Oct 14 solar eclipse may be especially laden with the need for solitude and closure in order for space to be primed for renewal. We may feel in the dark and unable to make important decisions, however, in time, profound insight will be revealed.
