Global Hot Spot: The Annular Solar Eclipse in Libra on Saturday October 14, 2023

Dateline October 13, 2023: For those of you who are now enjoying the Astrology Cosmic Kalendar App one day at a time – but who have not yet subscribed to be able to look several weeks into the future – here is the calendar entry for a very significant date Saturday October 14 and the day after. Because every day – beyond the current 24 hours that we define as one rotation of our celestial orb on its axis – has astro-zodiacal magic, mystery and wonder is why thousands of people around the world have been tuning into the Astrological Cosmic Kalendar for the last 42 years and since it was at the heart-center of our Welcome to Planet Earth pioneering astrology newspaper/magazine during the 1980s and 1990s.

The Annular Solar Eclipse/Libra New Moon can make an extraordinary impact in your personal life and for all of humanity. You can read more about this powerful solar-lunar conjunction in the cardinal-air sign of the zodiac further below.

In addition, inside this feature see the World Map of solar, lunar and planetary rising/setting above/below lines for this Libra New Moon/Annular Solar Eclipse as well as the horoscope calculated for Washington, D.C.

Extra Map of U.S States Directly Impacted by the Annular Solar Eclipse: We don’t usually provide this, but we are adding a map that shows what astronomers call the Path of Annularity as this eclipse reveals a “Ring of Fire” around the Moon’s disk because the lunar orb is too far away from the Earth to make this a Total Solar Eclipse.

Important Note about “Dangerous Storms” in the Psychic Atmosphere of Humanity: At this Annular Solar Eclipse/Libra New Moon, the Sun and Moon are close to a conjunction with Juno in Libra and opposite Chiron in Aries in the USA birth chart from July 4, 1776. Plus, Mercury and Chiron are in their annual polarity on the day of this powerful sky configuration. Israel and Hamas are already at war, the Russia-Ukraine war is ongoing as are many other troubled hot-spots around the world. Therefore, if national and international events become even more dangerous, I will provide more information on our website. Juno has many sterling and admirable qualities and archetypes, but when it manifests in a negative manner, then rage by the disempowered, terrorist acts as well as atmospheric storms can manifest.

Important about Eris & the Mean Nodes of the Moon: The far-distant planet Eris – discovered in January 2005 and having a 559-year orbit around the Sun – and the fate-destiny Mean Nodes of the Moon are closing in on a rare conjunction-opposition – energizing 25 degrees of Aries-Libra. In Greek Mythology, Eris was the sister of Mars and especially known for being the cause of the Trojan War. This Eris exact link-up with the Mean Lunar Nodes becomes precise October 20 – 21, but is super-active all of October.

Cosmic Kalendar Entries for Saturday October 14 and Sunday October 15 (Times listed are in PDT.)

Saturday October 14 As indicated in Friday’s calendar entry, an Annular Solar Eclipse clocks in at 10:56am. This is simultaneously a New Moon energizing 22 degrees of Libra. Before this time, the dark-of-the-moon monthly phase is prominent — suggesting the need to complete odds and ends that have been going on in your life over the past 4+ weeks. Today’s eclipse will reveal a circular ring of solar light because the Moon happens to be near apogee or too far from the Earth to completely cover the disk of the Sun. Nevertheless, this line up of Earth, Moon and Sun is extremely potent, and all Libra themes are intensified. Early on this Saturday, the Moon makes its monthly union with Messenger of the Gods Mercury (2:59am) to reinforce your literary and educational talents. Later on healing forces are on center stage as the Sun makes a contra-parallel to Chiron (1:17pm) while Mercury forms its annual polarity with Chiron in Aries (3:32pm). Learn more sensible healing treatments, meditation, affirmations, yoga, reincarnation, mandalas, crop circles, pyramid power, esoteric philosophy, UFOs and ETs. [Note to readers: All times are calculated for Pacific Daylight Time. Be sure to adjust all times according to your own local time so the alignments noted above will be exact for your location.]

Sunday October 15 Building forward momentum is an important component of any New Moon cycle which began with a profound bang yesterday in sync with the Annular Solar Eclipse. Turn within for extra guidance as the Moon in Libra squares Pluto in Capricorn (12:02am) beginning a short void lunar zone that lasts until the Moon enters fixed-water Scorpio (4:05am). During the void cycle, heart-and-soul vibrations ratchet up as the Sun forms a contra-parallel with Venus (12:36am). Once the Moon transits the 8th sign of the zodiac, strengthen your detective skills. Ferreting out family secrets and being a savvy researcher are priorities especially as the Moon trines Saturn in Pisces (5:43am) and unite with Mars (8:37am). On the athletic front, take time to improve your curve ball, hook shot, golf swing, tennis backhand, soccer kick or volleyball serve. Ward off any rise in nervous tension as the Sun in Libra forms an oblique, 150-degree link to Uranus in Taurus (12:45pm). Nurture dear ones with a maternal-comforting touch as Ceres in Scorpio makes a rare polarity with Jupiter in Taurus (1:01pm). Love vibrations increase in frequency as the Moon forms a supportive, 60-degree alliance with Venus in Virgo (3:52pm). Saturday’s emphasis on healing wavelengths returns this evening as Venus parallels Shaman-Mentor Chiron (9:22pm). [Note to readers: All times are calculated for Pacific Daylight Time. Be sure to adjust all times according to your own local time so the alignments noted above will be exact for your location.]
