There will be a total Lunar Eclipse in Taurus on Tuesday, November 8th at 3:02 pm. On November 8th, the Full Beaver Moon will rise in Taurus at 3:02 am PT. This Full Moon also comes with a total lunar eclipse. A lunar eclipse happens 2-4 times a year at the Full Moon. When the Sun, Earth, and Moon are lined up, with the Sun and Moon opposite the Earth, the Earth’s shadow falls on the Moon, making the Moon “dark”, or more likely red due to the Sun’s light behind. Depending on your location, you may or may not see a lunar eclipse, as its visibility will vary. According to some astrologers, any intentions we set to manifest during this ecliptic cycle will come to fruition over the next 6 months.
This Full Moon signals the coming of winter and asks us to let go of drama and appreciate safety, security, and peace. And since it’s in Taurus, this moon also carries powerful, strong, determined energy to get things done !
With practicality in mind, new pathways and avenues are explored. The energy this month is one of fresh light. A different approach to things around you brings about resolution and forward movement. Stagnation has played a part in us all. But now is the time to release the flow of water in our lives. New projects are highlighted this month with the fire of creativity at the forefront of this lunar eclipse.
The shadow side of the November full moon reveals the darkness present within our own minds. With the enlightenment of light around us, the changes we need to make are made easier. The Lunar Eclipse will “spotlight” that house area and those planet/point energies in your chart – if you have not been paying attention to them and using them at their highest potential. In general, Lunar Eclipses bring out our internal thoughts and feelings, our emotions, about those areas. Of course, our thoughts and feelings can lead to actions, which may be a good thing for you, if these areas of life need you to do something.
For some people, the effects may last only hours, for others, the influence may last up to 6 months until there is a New Moon in the same Sign (Taurus, in this case).
How will this affect you?
For many people, the Lunar Eclipse will have little noticeable effect. However, these are things to look for in your chart: At a lunar eclipse, we want to pay attention to the house it is in and any planets/points that are conjunct or opposite it. Those will have the most effect from this eclipse.
Here’s How The November 2022 Full Moon Will Affect Your Zodiac Sign
Keeping your head held high during significant periods of change is easier said than done, but it’s important to keep reminding yourself that you made it this far, and you did it all on your own. You’re confronting the shadow side of your comfort zone and sense of security under this lunar eclipse. And though these lunar epiphanies are bound to catch you off guard, it’s shaking things up in your world in order to liberate you from the toxicity of your attachments, power dynamics and relationship fixations. The same goes for those of you who feel unconsciously indebted to others, and struggle with being discerning with your energy.
The moon is being eclipsed in your name, signaling profound changes in your energy, personally and professionally. The Great Awakener planet is also being supercharged during this potent lunation, suggesting the possibility of there being surprise shake-ups and unexpected occurrences that propel you towards a brand-new world. This chaotic metamorphosis, however, will likely challenge your contractual agreements, committed partnerships and significant others, because you’re *literally* breaking free from an outdated persona that’s no longer resonating with your soul path. This could be a facade you carried on for the sake of your relationships… or worse, to maintain control. Be honest with yourself.
Everyone has a unique way of coping and decompressing, but under these instigating eclipse rays, you’re unintentionally running into your shadow, and in ways you would never expect. Thanks to erratic Uranus, your psyche is supercharged, intuitive and electric with wisdom, highlighting everything from the dark side of your day-to-day surroundings to the driving force(s) behind your acts of service. Sure, this can feel a bit uncomfortable at first, but rest assured, there’s no denying what’s being brought to your attention at this time. If you’re overworking yourself, or perhaps fixating on something that’s no longer working in your favor, you will know.
A new era is born in your social spheres, one that will enlighten, surprise and liberate you, but there’s some shadow work you need to do beforehand. After all, the celestial ruler of this eclipse, Venus, is sitting with the sun, Mercury and the South Node in Scorpio, highlighting the taboo side of your passion projects, romantic rendezvous and (extreme) desire to love, and be loved in return. The same goes for recognition from your community, and that of your talents, skills and abilities. Others of you, however, may struggle with expressing your unique gifts with the masses, opting to remain inhibited instead.
There’s nothing wrong with keeping things private but, by that same token, whatever goes on in your personal life will eventually reflect onto your professional world, and the same goes for your sense of authority. If you’re going out of your way to avoid a relative, emotion and/or long-overdue conversation, this could potentially influence your reputation with a loved one. With this in mind, it’s important to reflect on what is no longer in alignment when it comes to your work vs. life balance. Fixations, polarizing emotions and intrusive behavior in the family unit is likely, but this is where the cosmos helps you get free.
The doors of your perception are opening, perhaps unexpectedly so. However, this newly found outlook and opportunity for expansion will more than likely challenge your default mindset, as well as the dynamic of your immediate surroundings. A new belief system, entrepreneurial venture and/or journey to self-discovery could catch you off guard, as it will challenge you to confront everything from the shadows of doubt that keep you inhibited to your desire to maintain the upper hand. The North Node is guiding you towards this new beginning, so don’t be afraid to keep an open mind, even if that means financially or in terms of your relationships.
To merge, or not to merge, that is the question. Although, despite the discomfort stemming from these unexpected changes, it’s important to remember that the North Node is, indeed, guiding you towards a brand-new foundation of exchange, whether it be personally or professionally. The same goes for those of you who have been feeling insecure and/or fixating on financial burdens; an exciting opportunity for new streams of income could be presented to you, but it may require you to surrender indulgence, as well as the fear of commitment in the process. What you wholeheartedly value in a partnership can no longer be denied.
Do you feel neglected, or are you unconsciously denying yourself of what you’re really worth? The shadow work continues, but you were born for this. And while the truth surrounding your loyalties and attachments isn’t always the easiest to accept, you’re being called to reflect on the shadow side of these connections, as well as your definition of compromise. The same goes for your fixations, obsessions and/or fears surrounding other people. Let’s say you lack trust in another; this is where the cosmos is challenging you to confront what’s actually driving this low vibrational pattern. The more you’re willing to face the truth about a situation, the sooner you will break free from this.
Got a secret? With a stellium of energies in Scorpio lighting up your 12th house of privacy… the real question is, who’s counting? Despite the strategy you may have in place with regards to the logistics of your lifestyle and/or the dynamic of your habits, some unexpected shake ups are bound to catch you off guard under these erratic eclipse rays. The same goes for the shadow side of your coping mechanisms and life behind the scenes, whether consciously or unconsciously. Others of you could be avoiding taking responsibility for the sake of keeping something yourself, but rest assured, the last thing you have is “control.”
Is Keeping Up With The Jones’ really worth you compromising your happiness, and individual expression? If it’s not a group dynamic and/or community affair you no longer resonate with, then it could be something as silly as an obsession with social media, as opposed to exploring other hobbies. Others of you could’ve been choosing the more challenging route, for the sake of social acceptance, as opposed to taking a practical approach and following your bliss. The universe wants to make your life easier, Capricorn. Besides, don’t you think you’ve paid your dues? Consider this an unexpected opportunity for growth.
When you go within and reflect on what emotionally fulfills you, and brings you an innate sense of stability, what’s the first thing that comes to mind? Does it align with the professional path you’ve chosen to commit to? Maybe you’re living somewhere that’s a distance from your place of employment, but you’re choosing to remain committed, even though it’s a burden. Whatever the case may be, this unexpected shakeup in your personal life is precisely what is liberating you from outdated traditions, and toxic attachments surrounding your desire for authority and notoriety. Release the fear; there’s no reason to be paranoid. Follow your gut.
What you think about on a regular basis will eventually manifest in your reality. That said, when thinking about your worldly pursuits and longterm vistas, it’s important to be honest with yourself about the shadowy layers surrounding your future goals, not to mention the lack of faith you have in the rest of the world. After all, this lunar eclipse will be sitting alongside the Great Awakener planet, bringing unexpected changes to your environment, some of which could benefit you greatly in the longterm. That is, if you’re willing to venture into the unknown, and explore other horizons, of course. Transcend the fear, and take a leap of faith.
