Full Moon Lunar Eclipse in Taurus
Each moon phase contains divine energy which can aid us in spellwork.
The full moon in particular provides us with lots of energy and can help us achieve high-impact results. The next full moon is coming up on the 8th of November 2022 and falls in the earthy, venusian astrological sign Taurus at 10:02pm AEDT. But this isn’t just a full moon phase - on this night, the moon’s orbit will create a powerful alignment with the sun and form a total lunar eclipse.
You have probably heard about how full moons and eclipses especially tend to bring about some wild energy and impact people in all sorts of wacky ways, so it’s usually advised to lay low at home. Although it might be best to stay inside and avoid people, don’t shy away from your craft on this night! This potent energy is sure to bring incredible results in your spellwork.
WHAT IS A LUNAR ECLIPSE?
When a lunar eclipse occurs, the moon emanates the Earth’s shadow and Earth is wedged perfectly between the sun and the moon which results in the moon exuding an eerie, crimson red tone.
WHAT DOES THE FULL MOON BEING IN TAURUS MEAN?
Taurus is a grounded and reliable earth sign that can help us form a solid foundation so we can calmly navigate the challenges of life. This assistance is much needed during Scorpio season which can be an astrologically intense time. Perhaps you’ve been feeling ungrounded or anxious, particularly in matters concerning work, home or love. A firm foundation in these areas of life is important for your peace of mind, and this is where earthy and sensual Taurus energy can help you get back on your feet and bring about strength so you can utilise mystical Scorpio’s dreams into practical form.
Taurus is also ruled by the planet Venus which brings sensual and creative energy, making it the perfect night to de-stress and give ourselves some self-love, whether that be in the form of treating yourself to a face mask, having a candle-lit bath and making sure you get your beauty sleep. Taurus rules the neck and shoulders, so if you’re spending the night with a lover, treat each other to a massage to release some tension and spark an intimate moment to enjoy.
WHO WILL BE AFFECTED BY THE FULL MOON IN TAURUS?
This full moon lunar eclipse in Taurus is a significantly powerful and impactful time for everyone, however, those with astrological placements in fixed signs (Taurus, Leo, Scorpio and Aquarius) will be especially affected.
