This Taurus Full Moon Lunar Eclipse marks the first of two Eclipses taking place on November 19th (Partial Lunar Eclipse) and on December 3rd (Total Solar Eclipse).
Eclipses always usher in a new transformational cycle. Now we also have the first eclipse in a new sign.
The past 18 months has seen eclipses occurring on the axis between Gemini (North Node) and Sagittarius (South Node). Gemini represents networking, social media, gossip, hearsay, information and/or misinformation). While Sagittarius represents the quest for knowledge, higher education and philosophy.
The North Node is where we are needing to develop and grow. While the South Node represents patterns we’ve outgrown and need to let go.
The Nodal Cycle around the 12 signs of the zodiacal wheel takes approximately 18-19 years. The last two times the Lunar Nodes were in Gemini/Sagittarius were October 13, 2001 to April 14, 2003 and March 17, 1983 to September 12, 1984.
Eclipses usher in a complete new cycle in the areas of your life where they are transiting.
Taurus Full Moon Partial Lunar Eclipse
Pay especial attention to what is occurring at the Taurus Partial Lunar Eclipse. This is where we are headed and how we need to move forward in our life (both collectively and as individuals).
There’s illumination of what has been hidden, or kept in the dark. Taurus rules the 2nd House of Self Worth and Personal Possessions. Now this area of your life comes into focus. You (and individuals in the world at large) are seeking more validation, self respect and appreciation from others.
As with all full moons there will be an end to what has previously been allowed to go on. Now things can be culminated and brought to a close. Any outstanding obligations will need to be balanced and eliminated to make way for the new cycle of energy coming in.
Before the sign of Scorpio is activated, take note, that there will be one final Sagittarius New Moon Solar Eclipse. A new path toward greater knowledge and understanding can be activated that will play out over the next 18 years.
Taurus is ruled by Venus and Scorpio has two rulers (Mars, the old ruler, and Pluto, the new ruler).
Both Taurus and Scorpio, though opposite polarities, have similar qualities. Both are feminine (yin) signs, both are fixed (stubborn), and both are patient. These qualities make for more receptivity and adaptability (in order to get want you want). So, there’s a certain ability to negotiate differences despite the predominance of having fixed attitudes. This fixity can help with stability, but can also slow down and delay much needed change.
However, couple this usual Taurean fixity (stubbornness) with the fact that Uranus is currently transiting Taurus, and you get far reaching and inclusive change that comes to all things related to the Taurus (2nd house) and Scorpio (8th house) axis. BTW: The 8th House polarity is about how other’s benefit and value you. As the South Node is transiting here, old stuck values and attitudes are set to be released.
Appreciation of the individual is set to grow and evolve in society at large.
There will be major preoccupation over the next 18 months with creative and artistic pursuits, material concerns, creature comforts, security and control issues surrounding personal, as well as shared wealth. With this mix of energies, passions may run very high.
Remember also for the first year, or so of this transit of the nodes through Taurus and Scorpio, Saturn will be transiting Aquarius which forms a T-Square with the North (Taurus) and South (Scorpio) Nodes. This T-square represents tremendous pressure and conflict arising out of a need to make necessary changes. T-squares force the changes that have to take place.
There’s a finality that’s underlined at the Taurus Full Moon as it is within orb of the 1° Gemini North Node. All the madness and lunacy of the past 18+ months gets shut down. You should notice a marked change taking place now in world events.
Also, Venus in Capricorn Trine to Uranus omens a sudden passionate affair taking place. Venus in Capricorn has a strong head for business and negotiating deals. Breakthroughs in governing agencies and corporate type bodies are especially highlighted.
The Taurus Full Moon Lunar Eclipse, Conjunct to both the Fixed Wealth Star, Algol, and Alcyone, marks a time of extremes when anything is possible. This is quite an intense start to a new 18 month cycle where many firsts are likely to happen.

This can be a time when the passionate release of old pleasures may occur. Urges for naughty pleasures can surface that you know you’ve outgrown. Is a habit to someone, or something holding you back? Time to let it go. Sudden love at first sight, or strong attraction is possible.

Archangel to Assist You
At this time, if you choose, you can invite Archangel Chamuel to assist you with your meditation. Angels are ‘light’ beings, simply meaning they are aligned with the creative power of the universe to create peace and harmony in our world.
Chamuel’s name means, “S/he who sees/seeks God.”
Chamuel is one of the most powerful healing angels and a central leader in the Angelic hierarchy. S/he is one of the Angels known as the ‘Powers’ whose task is to protect the world from fearful and lower plane energies. Call upon Chamuel whenever you feel the need for comfort, protection and intervention in worldly events that threaten to overwhelm.
Chamuel can help you to experience more love, compassion and gratitude in your daily life. S/he can also help you find what has been lost and help to strengthen your relationships with others. The Angel of Peace and Calmness, when you need reassurance that all is well, call upon Chamuel.
