On October 28th at 4:24 pm EDT, the Moon opposes the Sun (in 5º of Taurus/Scorpio). The entrance of the Moon into Taurus on Oct. 28th at 7:44am EDT begins the energetic build-up towards this powerful Full Moon.

This powerful Full Moon is also a Lunar Eclipse. Every six months, the Sun, Moon, & Earth align precisely enough for Solar and Lunar Eclipses to occur.

During a Lunar Eclipse, the Full Moon slowly dims as it passes through the Earth’s shadow, stimulating our emotional body and increasing our awareness of unconscious patterns and fears. If you’d like to learn more, and as a Member of my online community, click here to watch my Lunar Eclipse video.

This powerful Full Moon is a shallow Partial Lunar Eclipse viewable across Europe, Africa, most of Asia, and western Australia. The partial Eclipse lasts 78 minutes (=1hr 18min), so we will feel the influence of this Lunar Eclipse for approximately 39 days.

This Lunar Eclipse is the last of the Eclipses in the Taurus-Scorpio polarity — an Eclipse cycle that began in November 2021!

This allows us to complete an evolutionary process emphasizing creating a healthy sense of self-esteem and having a healthy relationship with the physical world —  learning how to value ourselves, each other, and the Earth.

So, the question is: How well have you been doing with this exploration for yourself since November of 2021? What more is there to be learned? What processes are asking to be completed?

What fears are still asking to be faced? What old traumas still need to be healed? What’s the best way to own your power? What is still holding you back?

As you might know from my last Solar Eclipse video, Eclipses are always powerfully connected to the Moon Nodes and thus to our Soul’s Journey (collectively and individually).

With this particular Eclipse, the Moon Nodes are no longer in the same signs as the Full Moon polarity. That said, they are within 12 degrees of the Full Moon — close enough for this to still be a Lunar Eclipse — partial perhaps, but still powerful.

The Lunar Eclipse highlights relationships of all kinds — but with this particular Full Moon/Lunar Eclipse, there is a heightened emphasis on self-value and intimate relationships. Full Moons also illuminate the truth and consequences of our choices.

We become aware of what has been suppressed or ignored — or, this being a North Node Eclipse, what we need to explore, embrace, and integrate about the Taurus energy.

It’s been 19 years since we experienced a Lunar Eclipse in this degree of Taurus. Think back to Oct. 27th, 2004: What did I need to integrate back then?

What became clearer at that time around exploring my talents? What about my self-worth — was I able to see my value? What about my relationship with money? To my physical reality? My Body? My ability to receive pleasure? To experience inner peace? Where do I need to take this to the next level?

We will also address this upcoming Lunar Eclipse in our next Forecasting Forum on Oct. 27th at 5pm EDT/2pm PT! Please join us if you want to know how this powerful Lunation will impact you personally. We will also address Saturn’s Station Direct phase in Pisces.

There is currently an Early Bird Special that is available until October 25th! So I invite you to take advantage of that — unless you are already a Star Member — you are automatically registered and will receive an invite email to join us live (it goes out the day before the live event). I release the mp4 video recording within 24 hours of the live event.

Many planets are involved in this powerful Full Moon/Lunar Eclipse chart: 

  • The Moon in Taurus closely conjuncts Jupiter
  • The Moon not only opposes the Sun but also Mercury & Mars in Scorpio
  • The Moon sextiles an exalted Saturn in Pisces 
  • Venus, the ruler of Taurus, is currently in Virgo and trines Uranus & Jupiter in Taurus
  • Venus in Virgo opposes Neptune in Pisces
  • The modern ruler of Scorpio (Pluto) is still in Capricorn and exalted, sextiling Neptune
  • Pluto also still squares the Moon Nodes in Aries-Libra
  • Pluto also trines Uranus in Taurus
  • Mars (the traditional ruler of Scorpio) closely aligns with Mercury in Scorpio
  • Mars & Mercury in Scorpio almost exactly oppose Jupiter in Taurus

I’ll give you more details in a moment. For the next 39 days, we seek…

Do you have your Ascendant, Career Point (or personal planets) in 0-10 degrees of Taurus, Scorpio, Leo, or Aquarius? If so, you are more affected by this month’s powerful Full Moon/Lunar Eclipse. The same is true for those of us who have our Ascendant or Sun-sign in Leo or Cancer (the Sun rules Leo; the Moon rules Cancer).
