Global Hot Spot: The Partial Lunar Eclipse & Full Moon in Scorpio-Taurus on Sat. October 28, 2023

Dateline October 27, 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 28 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 Partial Lunar Eclipse & Full Moon in Scorpio-Taurus can make an extraordinary impact in your personal life and for all of humanity. You can read more about this powerful solar-lunar polarity and eclipse further below.

In addition, inside this feature see the World Map of solar, lunar and planetary rising/setting above/below lines for this Eclipse as well as the horoscopes calculated for Washington, D.C. and Tel Aviv, Israel. The World Map is an important part of what is known as Astro-Locality charting and contains great insights if you have some experience with seeing these kinds of global perspectives.

Important Notes on The Middle East: With the extreme turmoil in the Middle East, Israel, Gaza and now other nations since the Hamas attack in Israel on the morning of October 7 and the Israeli reprisals against Hamas in Gaza over the last 2+ weeks, when you look at the Partial Lunar Eclipse horoscope for the USA in Washington, D.C., be aware that mighty Neptune in Pisces is almost exactly rising and its many themes will pervade our nation and the world. Plus, the Partial Lunar Eclipse won’t be visible in the USA rather it will be visible in Europe and throughout the Middle East. This is why we are providing the Partial Lunar Eclipse chart for Tel-Aviv as a major city in Israel as well which shows the Moon in the elevated 10th house and potent Pluto in Capricorn almost exactly setting. As you watch the global news this weekend and in the near future, realize that Neptune and Pluto forces are exceedingly potent – hopefully for the Highest Good and with some kind of humanitarian collaborations by millions of people, thousands of groups and organizations seeking peaceful solution to this always challenging/dangerous part of the world.

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 have just made and are still in 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 became precise October 20 – 21, but is super-active all of October and into November.

Cosmic Kalendar Entries for Saturday October 28 and Sunday October 29 (Times listed are in PDT.)

Saturday October 28 As shared in this Cosmic Kalendar over the last several days, the monthly high-point of solar-lunar activity culminates at 1:25pm when a Partial Lunar Eclipse occurs offering humanity an enlightening Full Moon experience (activating 6 degrees of Scorpio and Taurus). Before this Sun-Moon polarity takes place, the Moon in Aries begins a short 3+ hour void zone at 1:21am during a square to Pluto in Capricorn until the Moon enters earthy Taurus at 4:45am. Adding celestial potency to this powerful Saturday in October are the following major sky configurations — Mercury in Scorpio contacts Neptune in Pisces via a 135-degree aspect (7:17am), Mars in Scorpio makes its first polarity since July 29, 2021 to Jupiter in Taurus (9:04am) while Mercury in Scorpio forms its annual polarity to Jupiter in Taurus (8:46pm), and, not to be overlooked, Mercury parallels Mars (11:33am) and the Moon makes its monthly conjunction with Jupiter (11:38pm). So, not only is this Full Moon heightened by being a Partial Lunar Eclipse, but all kinds of additional heavenly portents are inundating the psychic atmosphere. Individual and group meditations, affirmations and prayers to uplift Mother Earth, dear ones and soul-contacts around the globe are advised. Rise to the occasion and think more about your higher purpose in this lifetime than on playing around with trivial pursuit games of chance and make-believe.

Sunday October 29 Just because it is the day following a Partial Lunar Eclipse and vibrant Full Moon doesn’t mean enlightening forces are extinguished. Instead, the following 48 hours after any solar-lunar monthly crescendo are a time-period to remember your role as a goodwill-love-heart ambassador around the globe. Helping you with this Atlas-like task are the Moon in Taurus in polarity to Mercury and Mars in Scorpio (12:02am and 12:31am), Ceres in a rare contra-parallel with Jupiter (1:08am), plus Venus in Virgo forming an inspirational, 72-degree quintile with Vesta in Cancer (3:37am), Mercury making its annual union with Mars at 12 degrees of Scorpio (7:23am), the Moon in polarity to Ceres in Scorpio (12:27pm) and trine to Venus (2:34pm) and the Moon moving on to unite with radical-change agent Uranus (5:37pm). Will every one of these sky patterns boost your awesome capacity to change the world in a positive way? They may be all at your disposal although Mars connections, 180-degree aspects and contra-parallel alignments may need a little coaxing to join the upbeat jamboree. Remember that with the Moon exalted in the fixed-earth, second sign of the zodiac, there are plentiful golden opportunities to strengthen your business acumen and embrace Mother Nature’s beautiful forests, hiking trails and gardens. [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.]
