On November 19th, at 3:57am EST, the Moon opposes the Sun (in 27 degrees of Taurus/Scorpio). 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, generally (though not always) in pairs of one Lunar and one Solar Eclipse.
This particular Lunar Eclipse is the first of two Eclipses within a two-week period; it offers an opportunity for a deeper, more authentic connection with ourselves and others.
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.
Eclipses are always powerfully connected to the Moon Nodes and thus to our Soul’s Journey (both collectively and individually). All Eclipses transmit new energetic codes and transformative downloads, symbolized by the signs involved, in this case: The Moon is in steady, peaceful Taurus, while the Sun is in passionate, all-or-nothing Scorpio.
The more receptive we are to these transformative downloads, the more quickly and easily we can integrate them; time in nature, meditation, art, and spiritual endeavors support this integration process and help us better attune to these evolutionary upgrades.
Relationships of all kinds are highlighted during this time — but with this powerful Full Moon/Lunar Eclipse, there is a particularly strong emphasis both on self-value and on 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 needs to be embraced, integrated, and explored — in regards to the Taurus energy.
It’s been 19 years since we experienced a Lunar Eclipse in this degree of Taurus. Think back to Nov. 19th, 2002: What did I need to integrate back then? What became more clear at that time, in regards to exploring my talents? What about my self-worth? Was I able to see my value? What about my relationship to money? To my physical reality? My Body? My ability to receive pleasure? To experience peace? Where do I need to take this to the next level?
We will also address the upcoming Eclipses in our next Forecasting Forum on Nov. 19th, the day of the Lunar Eclipse! Feel free to join us, if you would like to know how these powerful Lunations will impact you personally.
There is currently an Early Bird Special that is available until Nov. 16th! So feel free to take advantage of that, unless you are already a Star Member — you guys are automatically registered and will receive an email to join us live — it goes out the day before the live event, and the mp4-video recording is released within the 24 hours following the live event.
That’s it for announcements and logistics, back to the Full Moon…
Lots of planets are involved in this powerful Full Moon/Lunar Eclipse chart — two T-Squares, both of them with the Focus Point in Aquarius, and the empty leg in Leo. The ruler of Taurus (Venus) and the ruler of Scorpio (Pluto) are both in Capricorn at the time of this Lunation, making this sign an important place to look for how this Eclipse plays out in our lives. More about the specifics in regards to all of this in a moment….
The Moon Nodes are usually in the same sign as an Eclipse, but there are exceptions — those times where the Moon Nodes have not yet moved into the new polarity, but the Full Moon (or New Moon) is within 15 degrees of the transiting Moon Nodes, and therefore close enough to the Lunation to create an Eclipse effect.
This Full Moon is the first Lunar Eclipse in the Taurus-Scorpio polarity, and therefore provides a preview of what we can expect when the Moon Nodes start their journey through Taurus/Scorpio –– a process which unfolds between Jan. 18th, 2022 and July 17th, 2023.
This constitutes a new collective Soul’s Journey, one that puts an emphasis on…

Because Eclipses are so powerful, they require a bigger orb than a regular Full or New Moon. I usually use a 5º orb instead of 2º… so since this Lunar Eclipse takes place in 27 degrees of Taurus:
Do you have your Ascendant, Career Point (or personal planets) in the following: 22-29 degrees of Taurus, Scorpio, Leo, Aquarius, or 0-2 degrees of Gemini, Sagittarius, Virgo, or Pisces? If so, you are more affected by this month’s powerful Full Moon/Lunar Eclipse. This is also true for those of us who have our Ascendant or Sun-sign in Leo or Cancer (the Sun rules Leo; the Moon rules Cancer).
