On November 8 we undergo a full lunar eclipse. Lunar eclipses occur when the full moon passes behind the Earth and into its shadow. In exact conjunction with Moon and Earth will be Uranus, all three in the sign of Taurus, while the Sun and Vulcan are both in opposition to the first three in the sign of Scorpio. Since Vulcan is the planetary ruler of Taurus it’s likely we’ll see a planetary tug of war on the financial level. Taurus rules your money while Scorpio rules other people’s money. Taurus rules energy like gasoline and finances while Scorpio rules the energy that gets things done. Taurus rules gripping and squeezing while Scorpio rules blocking and obstructing. Add an eclipse to the mix and suddenly everything comes to a halt; the light of the Sun itself is blocked, an incredible vibrational shock to the solar system. Scorpio wielding its greatest power!
Some traditional astrology considers an eclipse a malefic time. After all, the moon turns Scorpio-blood red. While Scorpio sometimes gets a bad rap it is the sign of rebirth after being tested in the fire, while the Earth is the planet of transformation. We can see where these issues of energy and money, obstructing and hoarding are already occurring in our world today. The eclipse could bring this to a head and if we are open to it, show us the change that needs to occur. With so many forms of energy involved, we could be proactive in choosing to share rather than accumulate, find new forms of energy and new ways of distribution. Uranus retrograde initiates out-of-the-box concepts while Vulcan, the mythological god of the forge can break the chains of our captivity to greed, fear and old habits. We can use this powerful energy of the eclipse to join together, in resolving global conflicts like the phoenix rising from the fire, immortal and with tears that can heal.
Everyone: The eclipse will be visible throughout eastern Russia, Japan, Australia, and parts of western and central North America.
