A solar eclipse occurs when the Moon passes between the Earth and the Sun, blocking all or part of the Sun's light. This temporary blocking of the Sun can create a shadow on the Earth's surface, leading to a darkening of the sky during the day. Solar eclipses are fascinating celestial events that can be observed from certain regions on Earth when they happen.
Eclipses are significant astrological events and are often associated with major shifts, changes, and revelations in various areas of life. The specific effects of an eclipse depend on the zodiac sign it occurs in, the degrees involved, and its aspects to other planets in your birth chart. A professional astrologer can provide you with a more accurate and personalized analysis of how this eclipse might affect you and your life circumstances.

The last time we had a Libra Solar eclipse was in 2004 and 2005. Do you recall what happened to you during those years? There may be some significant events that manifest for you similar to what happened during those years.
I made a video about the nodes back in april:
Looking back to April 20th this year, the Aries solar eclipse already nudged you beyond your comfort zone, and now, the Libra solar eclipse beckons you to embrace transformation. This eclipse is under the influence of Venus, the planet of love, values and money, which forms a close conjunction within the Virgo sign. When Venus and Lilith align during an eclipse, you have the opportunity to liberate yourself from the expectations imposed by others. The solar eclipse this month offers a profound moment to recognise your intrinsic value and assert your needs, particularly within the realm of romantic relationships. Harness the energy of this new moon eclipse to fortify your self-worth.
Nevertheless, exercise caution in conveying these emotions, as celestial influences are elevating tensions. Mars will exert pressure on the South Node, symbolising pent-up anger and festering resentment reaching a breaking point. Mars, the planet of action and ardor, implies that engaging in challenging discussions without a well-thought-out strategy could lead to losing your composure. This solar eclipse is poised to unveil any deficiencies and concealed resentments within your most intimate relationships. How you choose to respond to the revelations presented is ultimately within your control.
The solar eclipse in Libra will have the most profound impact on those born under the cardinal signs (Aries, Cancer, Libra, Capricorn with planets within 5 degrees of the 21st degree). As the eclipse cycle transitions into the bold and passionate Aries-Libra phase, it's an opportune moment to break free from constraints. If you're still uncertain about the path ahead, this solar eclipse serves as a chance to confront and finally release the ghosts of your past. Embrace the encouragement to confront your fears and overcome discomfort. This lunar event sets the stage for the upcoming Aries-Libra eclipses. Begin with small steps and observe the reactions to your newfound empowerment, paying close attention to both external responses and, more importantly, your internal emotional landscape.
