The New Moon (and Solar Eclipse) of October 23rd proves to have an interesting chart.  With an eighth house stellium in Scorpio when set here in Plano as well as Mars near Midheaven (MC), we expect the potential for some intense power struggles and intense transformations.

This intense eclipse is not entirely a surprise, given the recent “Grand Yod” of August and September (and effectively continuing to exert influence through November and into 2015), the Kite of October 5th through 12th (earlier this month), and Rosettas, Mystic Rectangle, and Thor’s Hammers that followed the kite.

Astrologically speaking, October 2014 has been a busy month.  And, this Solar Eclipse, producing a New Moon Stellium in Scorpio (in the eighth house in Plano, where the chart was cast), is no exception.

Maybe this year Halloween should fall on the 23rd!

Here is the chart:

We see traditional planets Venus and Saturn joining the Sun/Moon in Scorpio and (local to Plano) in the eighth house.  Asteroids Ceres (food, food supplies, and issues of prosperity and famine) and Pallas (Justice and legal battles) are also part of this stellium.  NASA has provided a map of the path of the eclipse.  Per, this eclipse will be visible in New York City near sunset.  Wikipedia also has a page dedicated to this eclipse, replete with animations.

From a Solar Maps vantage point, the United States map is particularly interesting.  The corridor of the east coast from NYC to Boston is particularly affected by this eclipse.  Other planetary lines (Pluto / Node / Mercury) affect North Carolina and South Carolina.  A Mars line passes North to South through Shreveport, Louisiana (see, also, this link) and points due north of Shreveport (through Canada).  Des Moines IA is also affected by the same line that affects Shreveport.

A Jupiter line passes through Los Angeles, bringing likely prosperity to that region.  (This might be in the form of rain, literally.)  That same Jupiter line intersects Vesta a few hundred miles east of Boise ID.  (So, this point east of Boise ID would be great to hold some kind of “brainstorming” conference.)

Given that the motion picture industry is centered in Los Angeles, but important productions are now being made in Shreveport, we have to wonder what kind of the collaborations between the two are going to emerge over the course of the next year (or at least until the next eclipse).

The Chiron / Neptune crossing south of Albuquerque NM indicates a need to resolve certain issues.  (This might be an important turning point for the CNVC. Happy 80th birthday to Marshall Rosenberg.)

We see an Astraea line passing near the center of Atlanta GA (and that emphasizes, at this time, any linkages Atlanta has to Paris, France).  We also note a Ceres line (Ceres at Midheaven) going through Vancouver and points north of Vancouver.

While the state of Connecticut does not have any crossings, it does have THREE lines passing through this relatively small region (Sun, Moon, and Venus).  We expect the eclipse to be particularly “viewable” here near sunset, and we also expect this region to be strongly affected by the eclipse.

The West Indies are highly affected by this eclipse.  A number of lines run through Cuba.  Puerto Rico is HIGHLY affected by a concentration of the same lines that affect Connecticut (Sun, Moon, and Venus), but closer together (and, therefore, a bit amplified).  The Bahamas and Jamaica are affected by close alignment of the Mercury / Node lines.  (Interpretation of Mercury / Node: “it is fate that something must be said.”)

In the UK and Europe, we expect Latvia to be most highly affected, but the region including Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania, and Belorus will be affected.  Paris is also affected.

As regular reader Caroline wrote: “I have done the eclipse chart for Bristol and you may be interested to know that Astraea is 01aries 22 9th house side to the eclipse MC of 01aries49.”  We see Astraea at MC for Paris, France.  Note that this activates any linkages to Atlanta GA as being important at this time.  And it also means that questions of Justice will be particularly important for these regions.

We also note that a Uranus (Prometheus) MC (Midheaven) line directly affects Munich, Germany.  Given the rest of this chart, we expect profound events occur here.  We hope that these will be in the high form (powerful insights and scientific breakthroughs) rather than the low form (explosions).  Either or both could occur.  Germany is generally associated with Scorpio, so we expect that Germany is now at a critically important turning point (that may not fully manifest until after the Mercury Direct Station.

SE Asia is highly activated, as shown by this map:

First of all, we note that almost all of the “-stans” in the region, from Pakistan to Kazakhstan, have a Chiron on the Descendant line passing through them.  They are feeling pain and wounds (perhaps wounded egos or maybe physical wounds or fiscal wounds or all of these) and will be sensitive at this time.  The part of India that borders Pakistan is picked up by this also.  Otherwise, India is mostly untouched by this eclipse.

Viet Nam, Cambodia, and Malaysia pick up the Node / Mercury lines similar to the Bahamas / Jamaica lines described earlier.  (Essentially these are slightly different variations of the same line.  Interpretation of Mercury / Node: “it is fate that something must be said.”)  As with Atlanta / Paris, communications between this region and the corresponding region in the West Indies may prove to be important.

Particularly powerful are the lines that pass through Northern China (near Japan), Taipei, the northern edge of the Phillipines, and the eastern edge of Indonesia.  These lines correspond to the lines passing through New York, Connecticut, and (other) parts of New England.  These are the Sun / Moon / Venus lines from the eclipse, and they bring powerful changes to these regions.

Taipei is one of the most highly affected places in the world.  Here is the chart of the eclipse, relocated to Taipei:
