The October 2023 Lunar Eclipse Will Affect 4 Zodiac Signs Most
You deserve a treat.
Eclipse season tends to be full of surprises. When it happens during Scorpio season, though, there’s not always a sense of enthusiasm when it comes to all the newfound changes. As the fixed water sign of the zodiac, the Scorpion emphasizes the desire to dig your heels in when it comes to adjusting to anything outside of your control. You may even find yourself catering less to your desires and exercising more self-control as a way to accomplish your goals and ambitions. However, as the October 2023 partial lunar eclipse unfolds, everyone will be invited to acknowledge what they’ve unintentionally deprived themselves of — especially the four signs most affected by the last eclipse of the year.
While Scorpio season’s placed plenty of emphasis on emotional control and self-discipline, it may have prompted you to neglect your desire to indulge in the finer things in life. But the four fixed signs of the zodiac will be shifting their attention toward comfort and satisfaction rather than restraint and scarcity amid the next eclipse.
What’s A Partial Lunar Eclipse?
Lunar eclipses take place when a full moon occurs the same time the Earth, sun, and moon are all in alignment, causing Earth’s shadow to fall across the moon’s surface. This only happens up to three times every year, making lunar eclipses rare, supercharged full moons. This month’s lunation in particular is considered to be a partial lunar eclipse, meaning that the three celestial bodies won’t be entirely in alignment, causing the moon to only be partially covered by Earth’s shadow.
