A Full Moon LUNAR ECLIPSE happens on November 8, 2022 (7:02 PM, Philippine Time), in exactly 16° of the fixed earth sign, TAURUS.
Eclipses signal in great new beginnings and great new endings. The LUNAR ECLIPSE happening this month is conjunct the north node, bringing not just closures and culminations, but also glimpses of the possibilities that can encourage us to turn the page, for a new chapter to be written. Those with personal planets or points from 11°-21° of fixed signs (Taurus, Leo, Scorpio, Aquarius) are in the direct path of the eclipse.
If born during these days, this Lunar Eclipse may affect you more than most:
TAURUS: May 1 - May 11 LEO: August 3 - August 13 SCORPIO: November 3 - November 13 AQUARIUS: January 31 - February 10
A set of eclipses happen every 6 months, so nothing to be afraid of! They are fairly regular occurrences in time. However, here are important reminders that one should take note of in the event of an eclipse:
1. Avoid making life-changing decisions at least a week before and after the eclipse. Eclipses are shadows covering the light, so awareness is compromised. It’s best to go with the flow for now.
2. Be open to changes manifesting. During this time, it is important to accept the progression of life situations. Holding on or fighting transformation may cause more stress and anxiety.
3. Expect heightened emotions. Embracing feelings does not require one to act on them or make decisions based on them. Respect whatever emotion you are feeling, allow it to exist, and let it run its course. Knowing most likely that people around you might be feeling out of sorts too, can help with the bubble of isolation that one might feel during these periods.
LUNAR ECLIPSE IN TAURUS
Venus-ruled Taurus, the second sign of the zodiac, is a fixed earth sign that embodies the natural world, and how we place ourselves in the sphere of the tangible. Taurean energy is practical, and surprisingly, quite complex in its simplicity. In it’s purest state, it doesn’t bother with theoretics, with ideas that stay in the sphere of the mind. When it plans, it plans towards execution and solidification, where thoughts eventually transform into what can be perceived and experienced by the five senses: sight, taste, touch, smell and sound. Any idea that doesn’t translate into a physical experience, is inferior in caliber.
This eclipse is exactly conjunct URANUS, the planet of awakenings, surprises, and unexpected events. Uranian events can be likened to earthquakes, where things get shaken, and foundations get to be tested. It may activate exciting, heart-pumping changes in your life that may lead to discomfort, even heartaches. You may feel empty and lonely for a while, but as you distance yourself from these events, the emptiness eventually tranforms into lightness. And this same lightness may be what allows you to reach higher levels of fulfilment, happiness, and peace.
Within the next 6 months, new endeavors that strengthen your personal finances, self-sufficiency, (and therefore, your self-esteem), may be offered, or at the very least, previewed, giving glimpses of an alternative life; possibly one we could have if we were brave enough to take the risk. For most, this vision may be a catalyst for movement. You are driven to leave the realm of ‘what ifs’, and are invited to bring your goals and dreams into tangible reality, even if it means depending solely on your own self, to make it happen. Self-sufficiency is invaluable now; it is the key that unlocks the door where your dreams pass so they can instead be acheivements that you actually wake up to.
Remember too that are themes that have been playing out in your life for the last year or so already, so these are familiar, insistent, nagging thoughts that persevere, no matter how much you try to push them out of your psyche. Unexpected events may occur that fast-forward your process, eventually leading you to the acceptance of inevitable change.
And as we go through this climax of this eclipse cycle, it would be of value to work on learning three important truths: First, to learn how to dance with the flow of time, to enjoy every step, and to understand that everything is unfolding to your advantage, even if it seems otherwise. Second, to know that ‘this too, shall pass’, applies to both the good the bad, and lastly, to learn to have courage in the infinite wisdom of the Universe; it may not make sense now, but everything is progress if you trust the process!
