INNOVATIVE SOLUTIONS VERSUS STEADY INCOME
November 19th, 2021- Partial Full Moon eclipse at 27 degrees of Taurus
Note that this is the first eclipse of a set occurring along the Taurus-Scorpio axis. While the next eclipse after this one is in Sagittarius, there will be a Solar Eclipse in Taurus in April 2022, a Lunar Eclipse in Scorpio (Taurus’ opposite sign) in May 2022, a Solar Eclipse in Scorpio in October 2022, a Lunar Eclipse in Taurus in November 2022, a Lunar Eclipse in Scorpio in May 2023, and finally, a Lunar Eclipse in Taurus in October 2023.
The New Moon Solar eclipse on December 4th is the last eclipse in axis of Gemini and Sagittarius.
With the first partial Lunar eclipse in 27 degrees of Taurus comes the time for changes and transformation for Taurus and Scorpio signs. Eclipses are our strong cards bringing time for change, major renovation and moving or growth. It depends in which house of our Natal chart the eclipses take places.
As the first in a sign set, it can serve as the initial swift, push, or urge to make improvements in Taurus and Scorpio ruled areas of life in our charts, where we may feel spirits of dissatisfaction magnified. It is a Full Moon eclipse, and it signals kind of culmination point of life, which depends on your natal chart.
The eclipse on November 19 will affect people with personal planets and points at 22 to 30 degrees of the Fixed signs: Taurus, Leo, Scorpio, and Aquarius, and 0 to 2 degrees of the Mutable signs: Gemini, Virgo, Sagittarius, and Pisces, most significantly.
November 19 – Partial Lunar eclipse in Taurus
During lunar eclipses we are encouraged to let go of whatever is no longer serving the soul. This is the time to release, purge, and say goodbye. In 2021, a lunar eclipse occurs on Friday, November 19. Remember, cosmic warriors, endings are hard, but everything is cyclical. A culmination always occurs on the edge of a beginning.
The Moon is usually exalted in Taurus, but there is no such assurance at this time, as Saturn’s impacts Taurus. Saturn (from Aquarius sign) squares Taurus, especially Taurus that are between April 25 to May 2. The Eclipse by itself falls on the Taurus, born at the last decan May 10th to May 21st. One way or other, most of you born in the sign of Taurus will be affected. This eclipse can bring tremendous obstacles. The Moon is afflicted by the melancholia of Saturn.
Taurus is the sign that rules money and finances, so be very careful during this eclipse, as you may have to deal with financial issues or to pay large sum of money. Any financial transactions are risky during this time!
Most of us will be impacted by these two eclipses. Some charts will be electrified more than others. If you have nodes in Gemini and Sagittarius or Taurus and Scorpio, or have planets near the degrees of these two eclipses, you will feel the impact.
What to expect from Taurus/ Scorpio eclipses?
Last time eclipses in Taurus/Scorpio came around was in November 2012 to October 2014. What life lessons began for you nearly a decade ago? Is your life on your dream path, or does this next cycle in 2021 mean finally using your will power and psychic passion to turn dreams into a reality? Scorpio in particular, which is ruled by warrior planet Mars and Pluto (the ruler of the underworld) knows how to transform and shed old skin to get what it wants.
The eclipse on November 19th at 27 degrees of Taurus is partial; the energy is slightly weakened, though, still very powerful.
A Lunar Eclipse provides a significant opportunity to release deep-seated wounds, move beyond old fears and to transcend negative patterns or traits within the shadow self. It is time to hide or eclipse (to make disappear) anything that maybe holding you back.
During a Lunar Eclipse it is an opportune time to do much inner-work, and illuminate yourself from the inside-out.
We will be inspired during the Full Moon eclipses to open our gifts to higher degrees of frequency and anchor these on the Earthly plane. It is time to take ownership and acknowledge our divine magnificence and shine brightly from within. This eclipse on November 19th is in the sign of Taurus.
Taurus Moons are down-to-Earth and have a mellow attitude; it is ruled by Venus and is a famine earth sign. Taurus generally is a sign that likes the familiar, the cozy and stable. The Moon shows what makes us feel secure, so for Moon Taurus, it’s all about building a solid life with solid people. The theme of security, finances and stability come first. Taurus is determined, fixed and stubborn sign. It is very difficult to change or accept changes. It will be hard to convince any Taurus of anything. It is a reliable and stable sign that we can rely on for support. Just don’t think you can make changes easily, expect a lot of resistance and stubbornness, as Taurus is possessive, inflexible and suborn. This Full moon eclipse in earth Taurus will be challenging because it will be a time for change, for ending and to let go. It will be an emotional and unsettling time for many, especially if we have to let go of people or possession, of things that have much value to us. With the Full Moon eclipse in this fixed earth sign, we look to what’s comfortable and familiar to give us a sense of emotional security. But the Sun in the opposite sign of Scorpio draws us back to the realization that nothing is permanent… except for the life, death, and rebirth cycles constantly playing out in the natural world and in our lives. This doesn’t mean we have nothing to depend on, no. It’s time to truly realize what we can depend on, what has enduring value to us and what is not-this-way that we can find peace of mind and concentrate on right things.
We may feel sad, but it is a natural feeling for what we are leaving behind. We need to stay grounded and make ourselves more capable of approaching changes with calm acceptance instead of anxiety.
The April 2022 Solar Eclipse in Taurus has the New Moon conjunct Uranus and Saturn square the Node and the Lunar Eclipse two weeks later in May has the Scorpio Full Moon square Saturn and sextile Pluto, so it will be pressured as well as having the potential for enlightenment or insight. Sudden changes are likely to dominate proceedings.
To have a clear picture of what to expect, we look at the Taurus and Scorpio signs characteristics:
Taurus is the second house of the zodiac; ruled by Venus and governs money we earn, finances, banking, real estate, the land, our possessions, and our value system. Venus, as a ruling planet, speaks by itself: how lucky we are in love and finances, how we handle money and how we make, spend, and invest our energy and money in everyday life.
Scorpio is in the eighth house of the zodiac; with its ruling planet Pluto govern the loans, wills, our fears, intimacy and joint account and joint resources, financial or intimate partnership. It rules the underworld, the secrets, the occult, crime, transformation, life, birth, and death. This is the house of sexuality as a transformation and release of energy, growing and healing, it is the sphere of emotional soul stability. This is why healing comes from deep transformation and elimination of the outworn and unnecessary in our life. Scorpio symbol is bird Phoenix that has died and then was reborn again from the ashes, stronger and more powerful than ever.
The square between slow and status-quo upholding Saturn and revolutionary, innovative Uranus, which travels in Taurus will be disruptive for most of us, especially Taurus, Scorpio, along with Leo and Aquarius. These eclipses will be more emotionally intense.
The year 2022 will not be anything like the disadvantaged, depressing and stuck 2020, when Saturn conjunct Pluto; as the eclipses in 2021 in Gemini and Sagittarius are much lighter, optimistic, and progressive, especially the last one, the Solar eclipse in Sagittarius, which will come on December 4th, 2021, brings joy and happy development. The benefits from this eclipse will continue for more than 6 months after this eclipse.
Again, Saturn and Uranus squares influence the eclipses of Taurus and Scorpio and make them challenging. It is time to break out of the rut, to challenge the old (Saturn) and create breakthrough (Uranus), which can create force structures to consider fresh ways of doing things. It can be tough to create solid structure that is secure with Uranus interrupting and upsetting Saturn’s objectives. As Saturn trying to impose limits, boundaries and restrictions could trigger a tornado of rebellious attitude! It will be hard to set up structures or limits that don’t align with what the collective believes sustainable (Taurus means money and values in money, ways we eat, ways we shop and spend our money).
Uranus is the Aquarius ruler, now traveling in Taurus, the sign of money and possession. We can expect innovative solutions versus steady income that Taurus prefers. Digital economy can be introduced at this time and this can be difficult to accept.
Consider the ideas of being trapped and yet a pressure to innovate or rise upin confrontationtoo. Be mindful of an inability to accept change, to be stubborn and unable to see other’s points of view, so consumed with personal agendas or thinking honorably on behalf of the group that life becomes chaotic and unnerving. Think about where you are keen to enjoy freedom and stay in reality.
Eclipses in Taurus and Scorpio will make significant changes in our lives, where money, finances, sex, and power take place.
Remember, Pluto rules Scorpio and it is the planet of the secrets and underworld. Expect many secrets to be revealed, many skeletons to come out of the closet. Pluto rules elimination and it wants full transformation, like a snake that needs to shed her 13 skins, so we shall be prepared for such transformation.
Issues like abortion, sex, immigration, corruption, income inequality, economy breakdown and financial collapses can trigger frustration, anger and raids. Pluto leads to explosive scandals or falls from grace of a noticeable individual, as celebrities, politicians, religious authority, or business leaders.
In 2022 we will experience a turning point, as it is the last full year of Pluto in Capricorn before it moves to Aquarius in 2023. There will be loose ends to be tied up, old structures and organizations to tear down and no doubt sharp resistance to any attempt to remove power from the old guard. Notice, we will be witnessing the first Pluto return at 28 degrees of Capricorn in the USA Natal chart; it takes 240 years to be completed. It is going to happen during the time of the Taurus and Scorpio eclipses. Now, you have an idea what to expect with the return of Pluto and this group of eclipses.
Jupiter is going to move into Pisces (the last sign of the zodiac) on December 30, 2021. Then, in middle of May 2022, it will go into Aries, the first sign of the zodiac, yet, to comeback to Pisces on October 29th, 2022, and move back to Aries by December 21.2022. Then, a new cycle will begin.
There is a hope! We can see the light at the end of the tunnel! Still, we have to be prepared for the coming changes, to be transformed and have progress in our daily life. We need to see and accept the new development, to fight for our freedom and independence, to help others be enlightened and live with love and compassion, to see the truth and make the necessary changes for the good of all.
Neptune is in late degrees of Pisces and is going to move into Aries (a new beginning) in 2025. Uranus is proceeding at standard speed to exit Taurus in 2025 and move to Gemini as well, so there may be a sense of heightened hope and nervousness about widespread changes to come.
