Tonight we have a lunar eclipse (partial) in Taurus at 27 degrees 14 minutes. This occurs at 12:57 am Pacific Time.
This lunar eclipse carries the intensity of a Mars and Uranus opposition within a degree, active as it is still very tight opposition. Mars co-rules Scorpio and intensifies the shadow experience, or the surprising outcome of something long-standing, with Uranus creating a breakthrough or breakdown within fixed energy.
Jupiter in Aquarius is in a close T-square with this lunar eclipse. What emotional security and stability are disrupted by the expansive quality Aquarian ruled things such as temporary social distancing rules, technology, air travel technology, and similar. Also, this lunar eclipse shows deeper concerns or challenges emerging related to supply lines and distribution (Taurus).
The Mars and Uranus opposition also has Saturn T-square from Aquarius as well creating a roadblock of some form of restrictive measures. Likely information and news stories will reflect this as well, and in the mix will be a heightened concern of mental health from the continuation of the pandemic and measures communities are taking to communicate the present situation with the public. In the Northern Hemisphere, we are seeing an increase in other illnesses in our communities, which also falls into the archetypes presently heightened with this Taurus lunar eclipse. Consider what the new information reveals and what people, in general, will be adjusting to once again as many consider travel to see family and friends over the next two months.
One other theme that may rise to the top during this lunar eclipse is currencies, especially crypto-currencies having surprising swings in the market. They are a Taurus-ruled thing in our experience and quite Aquarian as well, so I think if you have invested in any crypto-currencies there is likely a period of volatility presently. Lunar eclipse energy heightens the archetypal story.
Many souls will find this lunar eclipse challenging energy to navigate this week prior and the few weeks following, as it carries very strong Mars, Uranus, and Saturn hard aspects. Mental health and self care are incredibly important at this time as well as mindfulness of what you invite into your focus and energy through what you consume both nutrition and even ideas. It is up to us as individuals to discern what and where we give our energy. Sometimes the biggest self-care we can give ourselves is a healthy boundary, saying no a little more frequently to open up space to quiet our experience and slow the flow some. Scorpio, while intensive and penetrating, can be useful for discovering hidden things, working with research in some way, and bringing something to light. It may take longer than usual, but there is strong potential to go deeper.
A solar eclipse is approaching on December 4th at 12 degrees Sagittarius. Anyone with angles or planets in the early degrees of Sagittarius especially ( but any of the mutable signs will have significant experiences connected with this eclipse season). The south lunar node is at 1 degree Sagittarius and as the sun goes through the solar eclipse, and prominently for early Sagittarius there will be a “releasing” and purging that is likely to be in front of their experience across whatever area of life Sagittarius is within their nativity. In life we all move through cycles, all the time, this will be a rather potent one for mutable signs, especially Sagittarius. Religion, higher education, prominent teachers, professors, and religious leaders may go through dynamic life experiences right now, maybe even releasing from their physical life.
