This week the Lunar eclipse in the sign of Taurus on Friday Nov. 19th is the dominant influence.
This week begins with Juno, the asteroid of marriage and commitment, entering the sign of Capricorn at 3:23 PM EST today. Serious thought, consideration, and action is focused on restrictions, responsibilities and challenges within relationships. A mature and responsible navigation through what you’re deeply committed to is the focus.
On Tuesday, Nov. 16th, Vesta enters the sign of Sagittarius at 9:04 AM EST. We experience some expansion liberation, new hope, and optimism as it relates to what we’re deeply devoted to – something that feels sacred we’re determined to protect. A change beliefs could be part of the emerging picture.
THE FULL MOON PARTIAL LUNAR ECLIPSE AT 27 DEGREES OF TAURUS 14′ TAKES PLACE ON ON FRIDAY NOV. 19TH AT 3:57 AM EST. WE’LL BE FEELING IT’S INTENSIFYING INFLUENCE ALL WEEK AND FOR AWHILE AFTER.
In general Lunar eclipses activate endings, clarifications, decisions, some changes, or a re-balance most likely within the realm of relationships.
Taurus is a builder with an interest in keeping what’s foundational solid and supportive in good repair. The Sun in Scorpio’s balancing role is to dismantle old foundations that are outdated, stagnant, rotting, and no longer supportive of continued growth.
The energy suggests you’ve come to the end of the road in some regard. What used to keep you interested, engaged, or continuously benefitting from your efforts, may have run it’s course.
The reflexive urge for Taurus (almost always) is to hold on. Taurus is cautious and conflicted when it comes to change or letting go of anything – ever. 🙂
The opposing Sun in Scorpio requires a reckoning with what’s run it’s course, and an adjustment related to commitments, your role in the world, and the most promising road ahead. It’s possible you’ll need to muster up the courage to navigate through some new and different terrain.
The tightest aspect under this eclipse (other than the Sun/Moon opposition), is Uranus’s trine to Venus in Capricorn. What you’ve built through hard work, sacrifice, and self discipline in terms of wealth, prosperity, and relationship stability, could support some new personal freedoms. You might consider following your heart in a new, more satisfying direction and to embrace some enlightened values and priorities that feel more deeply satisfying and personally nourishing.
A liberating financial windfall or unexpected romantic encounter is also a possibility.
Uranus’s opposition to Mars in Scorpio confronts you with a shocking or de-stabilizing truth that ultimately changes your calculations and requires some significant adjustment.
You might feel increasingly liberated from the need to play a role that’s essentially been played out.
Black Moon Lilith carries a disruptive message that involves your fate or destiny and some personal transformation.
A “Yod formation” involving Venus, Mars, and Black Moon Lilith infuses a destined or fated “factor” into the current equation. A focus on disrupting the conversation, refusing to abide by traditional norms, or the traditional script that’s been laid out for you, seems important.
You might benefit from embracing a subversive role – especially as it relates to the things you tell yourself about who you are, what you desire, and what’s possible. Traditional behavior within the realm of love, sex, and relationships might need to be disrupted, or thrown overboard to make room for what’s more deeply satisfying and truly authentic.
