Full Moon In Taurus November 19, 2021

As the year winds down and we’re increasingly distracted from our daily grind by all things shiny, warm, and festive, we’re also heading into the second eclipse season of the year. (The last was in late May and early June.) As the sun wraps up its stint in mysterious, magical fixed water sign Scorpio, a full moon will sit in its opposite sign, fixed earth sign Taurus, kicking off a whole new cycle of eclipses through the second and the eighth signs of the zodiac that lasts into late 2023. 

The full Beaver Moon in Taurus will be on Friday morning, Nov. 19, 2021, at 3:58 a.m. EST and  will be the longest of the century.. The Moon will appear full for about three days around this time, from Wednesday night through Saturday morning. This will be a partial eclipse of the Moon. And Because Taurus is a fixed earth sign, this full moon helps us to get in touch with our bodies and seek security when it comes to matters of love, finance, and self-worth. The full moon in Taurus delivers big changes around love, money, and self-worth.

Full moons — which happen when the confident sun opposes the security-seeking moon — are culmination points when we often reach the finish line on goals or find that a particular relationship or undertaking has run its course. In other words, it’s about endings that have to happen in order for us to make room for beginnings, which is undoubtedly full of swimming in big feelings and often requires tuning into and applying your intuition. 

And when a full moon is accompanied by a lunar eclipse — which happens when the earth sits between the sun and the moon and casts a shadow over the moon — the emotional ante around all of that is amped up. The energy of the moment is often extremely intense and possibly even overwhelming. All of these elements of a full moon and lunar eclipse come together to create a powerful change-making brew.

With this month’s full moon falling in down-to-earth, sensual, security-focused Taurus — ruled by the planet of love Venus — shake-ups are most likely to be tied to romantic relationships, money, and self-worth.

A square to Jupiter only serves to magnify the eclipse’s theme. One of the main aspects this Taurus full moon and lunar eclipse makes is a square to Jupiter, the planet of fortune. That sounds fairly benevolent, but Jupiter’s the planet of “go big or go home,” bringing an exaggerating effect to everything it comes in contact with, so whatever the takeaway of this event is for you will only be bolded, italicized, and underlined by Jupiter.

Jupiter’s effect could also have us believing more is better — even if that couldn’t be further from the truth. For instance, you could be tempted to put work on the backburner or indulge a little more than usual only to have to deal with the consequences — the intensity of which could be ratcheted up by the eclipse — later on.    

Mercury blurs our thinking and communication. With the most recent Mercury retrograde in the rearview, you probably thought you were through the worst of this vibe. Bad news: Because the messenger planet is sitting opposite the moon during this eclipse, we’ll have less clarity and more confusion, which could lead to a war of words. Because both Mercury and the moon are moving through fixed — aka stubborn — signs, they’re fueling a tendency to dig your heels in and declare, “I said what I said.” This could of course be applause-worthy if you’re taking a stand on something worthy of commitment, but could very well be problematic if the situation calls for embracing a more open-minded point of view. 

As the year winds down and we’re increasingly distracted from our daily grind by all things shiny, warm, and festive, we’re also heading into the second eclipse season of the year. (The last was in late May and early June.) As the sun wraps up its stint in mysterious, magical fixed water sign Scorpio, a full moon will sit in its opposite sign, fixed earth sign Taurus, kicking off a whole new cycle of eclipses through the second and the eighth signs of the zodiac that lasts into late 2023. 

This game-changing event, which will be exact on November 19 at 3:58 a.m. ET/12:58 a.m. PT, will push the release of anything that’s no longer serving you so that you can more readily make space for the building blocks of a more deeply fulfilling, security-bolstering life.
