Full Moon in Taurus, Lunar Eclipse ~ November 8, 2022

My November 2022 Forecast shared:

November 8 Full Moon in Taurus, Lunar Eclipse, 6:02 a.m. Eastern US time. Also called the “Mourning Moon,” this one occurs on (the scheduled) Election Day in the US. The Full Moon peaks at exactly 16°00′ Taurus, between Uranus and the North Node. This portends an intense day, pointing towards the future. The Sabian Symbol for the Full Moon Lunar Eclipse is: “AN OLD TEACHER FAILS TO INTEREST HIS PUPILS IN TRADITIONAL KNOWLEDGE. KEYNOTE: The inadequacy of past knowledge in time of crisis.” According to Dane Rudhyar, “We might speak here of the principle of CREATIVE FRUSTRATION.” Mercury and Venus conjunct the Scorpio Sun point. This meeting may temper frustration through love, but nasty, vindictive words, jealousy and revenge could also arise. Depending on events, Uranus and the Full Moon Lunar Eclipse could trigger riots, but hopefully not!

We may already be witnessing some early Eclipse energy with the unfolding situation in Brazil. I don’t like to talk politics on my blog–and I am not commenting on specific agendas other than to say that we may see this Eclipse Season play out on the geopolitical field.

If the North Node and Uranus were in Scorpio rather than Taurus, I would feel more concerned. With Taurus highlighted for the future orientation (both Uranus and the North Node), it seems something liberating and tangibly empowering will be unleashed. What that will be remains anyone’s guess. Uranus is full of surprises, and “creative frustration” suggests people may not be satisfied with the first round of whatever transpires. Uranus, the North Node and this Full Moon Lunar Eclipse sit within a few degrees of the Mars/Uranus/North Node conjunction in late July-early August 2022 and this event re-triggers the fourth exact Saturn square Uranus event in early October 2022. We can look back to those times to see which issues may rear their heads again on November 8th.

Eclipses play out over the next six months, so we’ll see how everything unfolds in the longer term. Overall, this Full Moon Lunar Eclipse on the scheduled US Election Day seems important. The US will undergo its own ritual, which may or may not produce desired results, depending on your politics, as well as depending on who counts the votes–and how they do so.

I suspect we won’t have full clarity on the 8th itself, and certainly the First US Pluto Return continues to affect the entire world. Some people have wondered aloud why the UK keeps getting hit by disruption, and I would remind everyone that the US Pluto Return is also the Pluto Return of Great Britain’s role in the American Revolution. Time continually cycles, not just relative to natal charts. We can compare transits for any major event or time period.

Wherever you live on Planet Earth, you’re living through massive changes. Again, with the North Node in Taurus (stability/tradition/Earth Element/security), rather than Scorpio (death/destruction/rebirth), it seems that humanity will ultimately move through a period of disruption into one of greater stability and breakthroughs rather than total breakdowns (Saturn in Aquarius square Uranus/Full Moon Lunar Eclipse/North Node in Taurus).

How can you best utilize this eclipse energy? That depends a lot on your natal chart, but here are some good questions to ponder:

  1. In which areas, do I need to shore up, gather, repair and/or become more self-sufficient?
  2. What limiting beliefs or habits can I upgrade to something more nourishing, sustainable and supportive?
  3. Which traditions are worth preserving? Which ones deserve to die in these times of change?
  4. Which innovations would allow me to experience the best of the old while embracing the new?
  5. What does my body tell me I need to do? What does my physical reaction tell me is true or false?
  6. What feeds my body, my home, and my self-esteem?
  7. What do I value and why? Do I really value these things, or did someone tell me I should value them?

With the Sun, Venus, Mercury and the South Node in Scorpio opposite Uranus, Full Moon/Total Eclipse and the North Node in Taurus, we have an opportunity to release that which no longer serves. Think “liberation” and “innovation” rather than simply getting rid of old things. Focus on upgrades, and you can benefit from potential chaos. Patience will serve well, since some of these systemic upgrades take time. Step by careful step, both internal and external worlds will shift beyond a need to crash and burn.

  4. Wow, I JUST noticed this! The May 16, 2022 Full Moon Lunar Eclipse in Scorpio peaked at 1:11 a.m. over Rio De Janeiro, Brazil. Interesting given all the activity in Brazil leading up to the Full Moon Lunar Eclipse in Taurus.

  6. Such helpful insights in this, lovely lady, thank you. Things continue to very chaotic here in the UK politically and economically, so a good reminder of the role that the Pluto Return is having on our ‘fortunes’ as well – so much history for our nations to take responsibility for. All blessings,
    Sue

  7. Here’s a wonderful video by Astrologer Pam Gregory:

    I always love her insights. She and I look at different things but reach very similar conclusions. On a personal note, she reminds me sooooo much of my beautiful Gramma Irene. ❤
