Hello again. I’ve had a lot of positive feedback about the blog lately, with one of you calling it ‘the best astrology site’ – high praise indeed. Let’s get to it and discuss this full moon lunar eclipse in Taurus on 28th October. For a start, eclipse effects last a lot longer than a day, we’re talking months here.
How are you doing after the new moon solar eclipse in Libra on the 14th of October? Are you feeling renewed? Did something shift a gear in your relationships? Has the status quo returned? Or perhaps the cold hard metal of those Libran scales meant that a few tough decisions had to be taken. And don’t ever write Libra off as soft like marshmallow. This is one tough cookie.
Full moon lunar eclipse in Taurus
We’re about to experience another shot in the arm of eclipse energy. This time it’s a full moon lunar eclipse in the other Venus-ruled sign, Taurus. The Bull likes peace, but his nostrils are flaring at the prospect of the change that he’s already sniffing in the air. This may be curtain-down on eclipse season, but things are far from stable in the sky – as above, so below, and you don’t need me to spell out all the horrors around us in the world today.
This brings me to Mars. Now in Scorpio, this warlike planet can get up to all sorts of things under cover of darkness. Flying under the radar. Get ready for some stealth-like energy manifestations in your life and on the world stage.
As the ancient ruler of Scorpio, this is a very powerful placement for Mars, and yet it’s sensitive too, so you could find that there are some deep and meaningful chats and some grassroots-up transformative changes happening in you and your close personal relationships. And with the lunar nodes also not that long moved, the north node into Aries and the south node into Libra, all our relationships are on a bit of a spin cycle.
And all of this sets the stage for Pluto in Aquarius in 2024. Power to the people. Perhaps we’re going to see our relationships with one another improve just like global relations as we exalt that which truly matters in this world, and all that Aquarius stands for – humanitarianism and the collective.
