The Full Moon in Taurus opposite the Sun in Scorpio is a powerful and potentially game changing Total Lunar Eclipse. Lunar Eclipses occur when there is a special alignment of the Sun, Moon and Earth such that the Earth’s shadow falls across the Moon and temporarily blocks its illumination by the Sun. Astrologically this can only occur when the Sun and Moon are in close proximity to the Nodes, indicating karmic release and sling shotting us forward into a new potential reality.
The Sun, Mercury and Venus are conjunct the South Node all in Scorpio, the sign of power, control, secrets, resources and buried treasure. Scorpio is associated with the darkness of the underworld which is being explored, excavated and brought into the light for release at this Eclipse. Relationships, communications and a sense of personal and collective identity are likely to be deconstructed in order to be regenerated at a whole new level of vibration.
The Moon is conjunct Uranus and the North Node in Taurus, indicating this Eclipse has the potential to catapult us forward both individually and collectively. Uranus brings instability and sudden change, breakdown of outworn and unhealthy structures to make way for radical forward thinking systems.
The fixed T square with Saturn holds incredible tension, as the old guard digs in attempting to hold fast to the past. Frustration mounts and tensions surge under this dynamic, eventually erupting in a release of energy. This could manifest as sudden political changes (note the US midterm elections are on this date), financial instability in currencies or the stock market or even earth event eruptions such as volcanos or earthquakes. Current safety and stability structures are challenged as a rebalancing occurs to offer a greater level of security for all including the earth itself.
The energy of an Eclipse lasts for approximately 6 months. This Eclipse ushers in the Age of Aquarius, dislodging the power structures which hold in place disempowering regimes based on force; and portending radical, future focused, evolutionary structures based on fair and equal humanitarian values.
It heralds a culmination of crises and eruptions where we descend into the depths of the underworld both individually and collectively so that we may re-emerge with expanded consciousness at a higher vibration level.
