We have entered the orb of our next Eclipse cycle. The changes being ushered in by the upcoming Taurus Full Moon Partial Lunar Eclipse and the Scorpio New Moon Total Lunar Eclipse are already underway.
The tensions mount as we draw nearer to these two Eclipses. Notice what’s happening now to get a look ahead at the kind of intensity you might experience and what's about to change through the end of this year and into early 2022.
These are the first pair of eclipses in new signs signaling the move of the North Node out of Gemini and into Taurus and the South Node out of Sagittarius and into Scorpio. The exact date of the nodal shifts will occur on January 18, 2022.
The last time the North Node was in Taurus (and the South Node in Scorpio) was from April 15, 2003 until December 26, 2004. Think what was occurring for you (if you were born) for a glimpse of what the next 18months might hold for you. Did certain opportunities come to you? If so, what were they? And, did you make the most of them? Now you get a second chance to make breakthroughs in the houses where Taurus and Scorpio reside in your natal chart.
Taurus and Scorpio are the natural rulers of the 2nd House (material resources and what you personally value) and the 8th House (other people’s resources that benefit you, insurance, alimony, child support, credit, taxes and death).
Aries Full Moon
The Aries Full Moon each year brings an opportunity for stepping up and taking action. A Full Moon always marks a time of fulfillment and celebration, as well as letting go of what’s no longer working. What did you initiate around the time of the Aries New Moon last spring? Now you can take time to celebrate your accomplishments and jettison what didn’t work out as well as you had hoped.
The symbol of the zodiac sign of Aries is the Ram. A masculine sign, Rams are male bighorn sheep that live in the mountains and frequently known to settle arguments by butting heads with others.
The astrological aspects occurring are at the time of the Aries Full Moon are strongly conflicting with one another. The elements at play are explosive. The universe may be signaling its time to stopping messing around, step up and be a leader. Now you are challenged to be a part of the solution. Life is not a spectator sport. Or, for those who are arm chair critics.
It’s an especially energized time with fiery hot debates taking center stage. It may be time when a little dynamite is needed to get things unstuck and moving forward.
- The Aries Full Moon is Square to Pluto in Capricorn. Both of are Cardinal signs, want to be the leader, and control events and outcomes. Capricorn is ruled by the Goat and can be quite stubborn and reluctant to give up its turf. We are in a loggerheads moment. The hard Square forces change and both signs are resistant to accommodating differences.
- Mars (ruler of Aries Full Moon) is also within orb of an exact Square to Pluto, God of the underworld. In other words the mounting tensions run deep and are extremely intense.
- A T-Square between the Aries Full Moon, the Sun in Libra still within orb of a Conjunction to Mars Square to Pluto brings opportunities for setting a new course for the future. Something has to give and most assuredly will with this combination of energies.
Expect BIG explosive changes just ahead!

Before reaching Full and going Void of Course the Aries Moon was Opposite Mars (the planet of war) and Square Pluto (the planet of regeneration).
