Total Lunar Eclipse in Taurus: Accept Impermanence

On November 8, 06:01 AM ET, we experience a potent Full Blood Moon Total Lunar Eclipse at 15º59’ of Taurus. This lunation invites us to accept impermanence and welcome change into our lives, during a time of surprising shifts and sudden events that may force us out of our comfort zones before we feel ready for it.

The Total Lunar Eclipse in Taurus is the second Eclipse of the season. It culminates a lunar cycle that started two weeks ago with a Partial Solar Eclipse in Scorpio and a larger, six-month cycle that began on April 30, 2022, with a New Moon Solar Eclipse in Taurus.

Full Blood Moon Total Lunar Eclipse in Taurus: Pivotal Moment of Maturation

 

Lunar Eclipses are supercharged Full Moons that happen when the Sun and the Moon oppose each other close to the Nodal Axis, the two points of intersection between the Ecliptic, the apparent path of the Sun from our perspective on Earth, and the Moon’s orbit.

When Full Moons coincide with Lunar Eclipses, they mark pivotal moments of maturation, culmination, and release. They bring things to a head and catalyze revelations, facilitating clarity and new understandings of something previously unclear or uncertain. These events represent a time when we reap the rewards of our efforts and see the results of the work we have been doing.

Lunar Eclipses happen when the Moon, the Sun, and the Earth align in a way that allows the shadow of the Earth to prevent sunlight from reaching the Moon. During the Full Moon Lunar Eclipse in Taurus, the shadow of the Earth will, gradually, completely cover the Moon: the whole process is lasting approximately five hours. This event will be visible from most of North America, Asia, and Australia, as well as from some parts of Europe and South America.

 

Total Lunar Eclipse in Taurus, conjunct the North Node: Opportunities for Redirection

 

The Lunar Nodes are points of destiny, fate, and karma that mark where Eclipses happen. During Eclipse seasons, when the luminaries align on the Nodes, there are high chances of experiencing unexpected turning points and sudden shifts in our lives, according to the areas of our chart that get activated by them. The Moon is currently on her North Node, while the Sun is on the South Node.

The North Node is associated with our evolutionary direction, with paths and ways of being that feel foreign and unfamiliar. It illustrates a way to balance existing tendencies and inclinations that keep us trapped in cycles of repetition. When Eclipses happen close to this point, they catalyze events and awakenings that redirect our path and guide us toward deeper alignment.

Eclipses always invite us to explore how to harmonize our relationship with the two opposing signs they activate. The current activation of Taurus and Scorpio encourages us to meditate on what stability represents for us, what comfort zones we have been indulging in for too long, in what areas of our lives we feel stagnant or blocked, when we unconsciously need to manipulate or control others to feel safe and secure, and in what areas of life we are resisting change the most.

 

Full Blood Moon conjunct Uranus: Shocking Separation from the Past

 

The presence of Uranus, tightly conjunct with the Moon and the North Node, is a potent indicator of exponential acceleration of change and disruption of our stability. Uranus is also referred to as “the Great Awakener” and its prominence maximizes the potential for unpredictable, sudden, shocking events, revelations, and discoveries, already high during Eclipse season. This lunation is likely to disrupt our stability in some unexpected way, propelling us into the unknown at the speed of light before we have a chance to think whether we are ready for it or not, without giving us much time to understand what happened.

Both Taurus and the Moon have to do with comfort, safety, security, and nurturance. The presence of Uranus conjunct with this Lunar Eclipse has the potential to catalyze the emergence of shocking truth and surprising revelations that can inspire us or force us to deconstruct the foundation we built our lives upon. The simultaneous oppositions of the Sun, Mercury, and Venus to Uranus mark drastic and sudden changes in our values, finances, relationships, thinking patterns, and sense of purpose.

These days, we may drastically shift our lifestyle as a result of radical changes in values and of a new awareness of how we can meet our primary needs without sacrificing our freedom, our individuality, and our authentic expression. We may experience events that generate abrupt separations from our past and from something that represents familiarity and comfort to us. This Lunar Eclipse conjunct Uranus invites us to explore how to gracefully let go of attachments that are preventing us from growing.

 

Sun, Mercury, Venus, Moon, & Uranus square Saturn: Massive Collective Shifts

 

The Moon and Uranus oppose the Sun, Mercury, and Venus, all in Scorpio and conjunct the South Node. All these planets are squaring Saturn in Aquarius, activating the Saturn-Uranus square, the long-term aspect we have been talking about since 2021. We could say that this Lunar Eclipse is marking the culmination of a process that started when Saturn and Uranus began aspecting each other. Key world events that deeply affect global politics and socio-economic factors are likely to take place. These may influence our relationship with the Earth and with Nature, for instance by affecting food production and distribution, as well as the availability and price of energy and natural resources.

This Lunar Eclipse will bring massive changes in our collective values, perceptions, structures, and lifestyles. We will clearly feel the tension between the pull of the old and the known and our urge to break free from it and explore new solutions, experiences, and ways of being.

On a personal level, the important activation of Saturn suggests a high degree of inner restraint, feelings of limitation and tension, and a need to remain in control to feel safe. It can also correlate to the emergence of paralyzing fears and insecurities arising right when we have opportunities to be fully seen, allow ourselves to be vulnerable, and open our hearts to let love in.

Venus conjunct South Node: Repeating Old Patterns to Alchemize them

 

Venus is the planetary ruler of Taurus, and she rules both the Lunar Eclipse and the North Node. The Goddess of Love is highly aspected on this lunation, underlying and maximizing the emphasis on the shift in relationship models, financial paradigms, and values that has been taking place.

Venus is now in Scorpio and conjunct with the South Node of the Moon. The presence of the North Node ruler on the Lunar South Node indicates that we need to solve, integrate, and gain awareness of something related to the past before we can move forward. This aspect suggests that repetition may still be necessary to fully alchemize a pattern. 

Around this time, pay attention to triggers coming up for you that generate a feeling of familiarity or dejavù. Try to identify past situations these triggers could be linked to, and ask yourself when was the very first time you felt that way, when was the last time you felt that way, and what subconscious beliefs and assumptions might have resulted from and have been reinforced by our experiences.

 

Full Blood Moon Total Lunar Eclipse in Taurus: Liminality of Transitions

 

As the Total Lunar Eclipse takes place, Mars is retrograde in Gemini and is forming a quincunx aspect to Pluto in Capricorn. This alignment underlines the fact that we are at a pivotal point in our evolutionary journey: the quincunx is an aspect of crisis that brings up the urgent need for adjustments. These days, we may have to acknowledge how desires and urges that are hard to reconcile are generating compulsive and obsessive behaviors that drain our energy and disempower us.

This Lunar Eclipse in Taurus is bringing many questions to the forefront, for all of us, and it is reminding us that this is a time to make radically different choices. How can we release the past with grace? Can we let go of what is no longer aligned with our values without needing to demonize it or destroy it? How can we allow our relationships to organically transition into a different form?

These could be some of the questions we contemplate these days, as we reflect on and renew our relationship with change and with the loss that is inevitable and inherent in all transformational processes. The planets and the South Node in Scorpio remind us of the value of being intentional in grieving what we are leaving behind, what gets taken away from us, and what is no longer sustainable or nourishing.

The Taurus North Node underlines the importance of allowing enough time for new ideas, visions, and desires to emerge from emptiness. This Eclipse is an opportunity to notice how we instinctively try to fill the void that is left when we transition from one chapter of our lives to the next one. It is an invitation to give ourselves permission to simply be and relax in the space of liminality inherent in transitions.

Blue Full Moon in Taurus: Breaking Free – October 2020

On October 31, 10:49 AM ET, we witness a Blue Full Moon in the sign of Taurus, exactly conjunct to retrograde Uranus. On the same day, many people also celebrate Samhain, an ancient Celtic festival signaling the beginning of the darker half of the year. For many, during what we today know as Halloween, the veil between worlds becomes thinner: spirits, both good and evil, are allowed to pass through.

Every Full Moon brings an energy of release, culmination, and blossoming: they represent the peak moment of the lunar cycle, a time to share what we have been working on and its meaning with the collective.

When two Full Moons happen in a calendar month, the second one is also referred to as a Blue Moon, even though this phenomenon does not affect the actual color of the Moon. The Full Moon happening after the Harvest Moon is traditionally known as the Hunter Moon: during these days, hunters had extra hours of light at night and hunting was easier than usual, as the fields had just been reaped.

Full Moons shine a light on something that was previously unconscious: our feelings come to a head, we are able to see more clearly. We are now experiencing an extremely charged cosmic alignment, that can be associated with sudden events, unexpected news, and life-changing opportunities for many of us. When Uranus is involved, it becomes very hard to imagine what to expect, how this energy will manifest in the 3D reality. Only one thing is certain: this Full Moon will surprise us.

To celebrate the arrival of this Blue Full Moon, on October 31 at 9:45 PM ET, we are hosting Global Live Blue Full Moon in Taurus Meditation on our YouTube channel. We invite you to join us, and invite others to meditate together with us. Tap here to find our scheduled live meditation.

 

Taurus: Survival Instinct, Stability, and Sensuality

 

Taurus is the second sign of the Zodiac, and is a fixed Earth archetype: it is related to form, to tangible matter, to security and stability, to our financial situation, our material possessions, our values, our sense of self-worth and self-esteem.

Taurus correlates to the survival instinct. After the initial impulse, after birth, and the separation from the womb taking place with Aries, we become aware of the essential needs we must fulfill in order to survive. Taurus has a strong connection to the physical body, with our capacity to feel pleasure and perceive with the senses.

Full Moons always happen when the Sun and the Moon are in opposition to each other: the Sun in Scorpio is now opposing the Moon in Taurus in exact conjunction with Uranus, the planet of sudden events, rebellion, and deconditioning.

Blue Full Moon in Taurus Moon Omens October 2020

The Taurus-Scorpio axis, activated by this cosmic alignment, has a strong link to sexuality and sensuality, as well as with our ability to understand and regulate our somatic and psychological responses to stress, trauma, and intense emotions.

 

Uranus: Disruption and Liberation

 

Uranus shakes up the expression of every sign it transits through, and it is going to be in Taurus until 2026. This planet is related to the akashic records, our collective memory field, as well as to sudden insights, ideas, and discoveries coming out of the blue.

Both Uranus and Aquarius, the sign it rules, are archetypes related to groups and friendships: as we enter the Aquarian age, being part of a community we can count on will be key for our personal and collective evolution. 

Uranus correlates with unexpected natural events; it rules electricity, lightning, and thunderstorm, and its transits always bring a revolutionary, extremely dynamic energy. Some Astrologers associate it with the mythological figure of Prometheus, who stole fire from the Gods and brought it to humans, despite knowing he was going to be punished for it. His gesture liberated humans from ignorance and allowed them to develop their creative powers.

Uranus is the principle of individuation, of liberation from the known, of deconditioning, rebellion, and fight for freedom. Uranus breaks down what has fulfilled its purpose, what is obsolete, the form that has lost its function or meaning, the structures and the traditions that aren’t allowing us to expand and grow further.

 

Blue Full Moon conjunct Uranus: Need for Freedom

 

The Moon in Astrology represents the most vulnerable part of us: it gives us information on our habitual reactions, our emotional and inner world, our sensitivity, the way we nurture ourselves and others. The Moon is traditionally considered “exalted” in Taurus: this means that their energies work extremely well together.

However, the presence of Uranus drastically affects the way this Blue Moon is manifesting as well as its significance for all of us. Moreover, Uranus is currently retrograde: this means it is closer to Earth, and its influence is magnified. Conjunctions can be considered the most powerful aspect between two planets: from our perspective, they form an angle of 0° and they appear perfectly aligned.

On this Blue Full Moon, there can be a strong polarization: when Uranus strikes, we might not be ready for it. Sudden events and unforeseen situations that bring the need for change to the surface are likely to accelerate our movement towards the future.

During these days, many of us are likely to notice an increased necessity for freedom and radical change, as well as a stronger feeling of separation from mainstream society and authorities.

The Moon-Uranus conjunction in Taurus, opposite the Sun in Scorpio, can reflect important disruptions of our sense of stability and security. What happens on this Full Moon can help us become aware of how we unconsciously try to generate a sense of safety in our lives, for example through self-sabotage patterns, manipulation, or power plays in relationships.

Venus opposite Chiron: Setting Healthy Boundaries

 

Venus is the planetary ruler of the Full Moon in Taurus: its position by sign and the aspects it makes give us more information about how these cosmic energies are going to manifest. Venus is currently in Libra, the other sign it rules, and it is forming an opposition to retrograde Chiron in Aries.

The Venus-Chiron connection reflects an increased awareness of other people’s pain. As a reaction, if their suffering is perceived as a threat we may shut down completely or, on the contrary, we may go out of our way to help others and in the process forget to take care of our own needs.

A common tendency with Venus in Libra is the need to be needed by someone else: being helpful to others can become the only way we can feel worthy, useful, and valuable. Yet, Chiron in Aries is all about reclaiming our inherent self-worth, the inherent right to exist that we all have, and that is independent of what we do, what we have, or any other external condition.

The purpose of Venus opposite retrograde Chiron is to teach us to have good energetic boundaries so that we can decide to what degree we are personally affected by other people’s struggles and by all the drama that has been going on globally.

 

Mercury square Saturn, Pluto, and Jupiter: Revisiting our Perception of Reality

 

On the Blue Full Moon in Taurus, Mercury retrograde in Libra is forming a square aspect to Saturn, Pluto, and Jupiter in Capricorn, and it is the second of a cycle of three squares. These aspects are likely to invite us to reflect on what took place around the end of September and the Super New Moon in Virgo, when the first alignment between these planets took place.

The type of square that Mercury is creating is also known as Third Quarter or “crisis in consciousness” square. The crisis that this aspect generates has the function of inspiring us to find new ways of thinking, communicating, and perceiving our reality.

These aspects will encourage us to reflect on how we relate to other people in the context of the rules and regulations established by external authorities, on how we communicate our thoughts to others, on the deeper reason behind the words we choose, and the meaning we attribute to language in a changing societal paradigm.

Retrograde Mercury squaring Saturn, Pluto, and Jupiter has the function to remind us that how we think, speak, and perceive the world strongly affects our way of interfacing with our surroundings. For this reason, changing our thoughts, words, and perception of what happens has the power to change our actual reality.

The internalization of our perceptions due to the retrograde motion of Mercury helps us find creative solutions to the challenges and issues we encounter through a non-linear way of thinking.

 

Blue Full Moon in Taurus: Breaking Free from Conditioning

 

The events happening on this Full Moon in Taurus can help us reconnect with our senses, with our sensuality, with the capacity to perceive how what happens to us is physically affecting us and to regulate how our body reacts to triggers.

Yes, the influence of Uranus can be unsettling, but it is also bringing sudden epiphanies, downloads, and insights that offer us enormous creative potential. Uranus, the ruler of Aquarius, loves everything unconventional, weird, and eccentric: this planet always inspires us to find alternative solutions and original ways to solve the problems we encounter.

Creative and innovative ideas can come out of the blue on this Full Moon: we have the opportunity to step into a deeper sense of self-reliance, which in turn helps us cultivate a solid self-worth, and a deeper trust in our capacity to be fully autonomous and independent.

In spite of the chaos and the confusion that many of us are experiencing on the 3D plane, the current planetary configuration offers us important opportunities for healing and self-empowerment. Ultimately, the Blue Full Moon conjunct Uranus is an invitation to honor our uniqueness and our individuality, and to break free from all those limitations and conditioning patterns that are still holding us back from living our purpose.
