Planetary news this week: Total eclipse at the Taurus Full Moon
Astrological update for the week of November 7-14, 2022
As you probably know, we are in eclipse season and the one on Tuesday November 8th really dominates the airwaves this week. First of all, it’s a total eclipse which means that the lunar nodes of fate are very tightly conjunct the lunation (the Sun and Moon in opposition). We have a powerful see-saw (remember those?) of the eclipsed Moon (feelings) in tight conjunction to Uranus (rebellion and change), but in the sign of Taurus which craves security and stability. So already we are set up for a lack of balance. The Moon conjoins the North Node which points to the future, suggesting that a change that comes about in this lunar eclipse will change the trajectory of destiny. (Quite a big deal considering it falls on Election Day in the U.S.)
On the other end of the see-saw we have a tight stellium (grouping) of planets in intense Scorpio, including a conjunction of Mercury to the Sun, illuminating the realm of reason and information, and Venus for power in relationships and personal interactions. The Sun, Mercury and Venus all oppose Uranus suggesting a burst of energy for something new. The role of Uranus is to inspire the breaking free of old routines and patterns which no longer serve us. The Sun conjoins the South Node of the past, suggesting that there is quite a lot that has been holding us back which needs to be released in order for the future to unfold as it should.
I’d like to also point out that the eclipse takes place just one degree from astrological Samhain, the midpoint between the Equinox and the Solstice known […]
