Today, November 19, we have a Full moon in Taurus, also called the Beaver Moon. At around 02.00 AM EST, we shall witness the first of 2 eclipses. The partial Lunar Eclipse, or Blood Moon, in Taurus (27º14′) will last about three and half hours and is the longest lunar eclipse in 580 years. It will be followed on Friday, December 3 at 11:43 PM PST by a Solar Eclipse in Sagittarius (12º22′).
This eclipse is expected to be better for water earth signs but can be challenging for air and fire signs. As we are still in Scorpio season, we can expect extensive and epic transformations. They might not be so comfortable since sometimes what’s not working out needs to be broken down to be rebuilt. This will be a time when we will have to learn and accept that change is a part of life.
In ancient times an eclipse played a significant role, as it was seen as an omen, good or bad. The moon represents the female energy and the sun the masculine. The two eclipses happening so close to each other really point to the importance of working on uniting the sacred feminine and masculine within, but also healing and deepening our relationships.
7 things to focus on during this eclipse
- Relax and trust that everything will work out for the best. Universe/Source/Creator has your back and has a master plan not only for you but for the planet. If you are feeling stressed out and insecure, find your balance and stability by getting back to basics, disconnect from social media, work, instead take a walk, look at things working for you. Practice patience and be grateful for the little things. Make sure to rest if you need to. Meditate.
- Value yourself and reward yourself. Venus, the planet of love, rules Taurus. Focus on self-love, and self-respect, but remember that seeking happiness in material things won’t lead to happiness in the long run. However, this is a good time to indulge in luxurious self-care, book massage, spa treatments, or buy that expensive item you have been longing for as long as you can afford it, and it serves a purpose of joy in your life. Seek out sensual pleasures and love yourself for who you are. You deserve it!
- Connect to the earth and to what is authentic and organic. Shift from digital to analog. Instead of playing Mp3 electronic music all day long, play an old vinyl or cassette band, or even better, bring out your instruments and sing a song, beat a drum, or play the acoustic guitar. Remove toxic cleaning supplies and make-up. Instead, buy environmentally friendly products that are much better for your body.
- It is time to speak up! Don’t hold yourself back when it comes to your feelings. Taurus rules the throat chakra, and this is an excellent time to speak your truth and find your voice. Be courageous and speak the words from your heart. Take care of your throat, vocal cords, neck, and shoulders. Rehydrate.
- Take a good look at your finances. Where can you loosen up a bit, and where do you need to adjust. Make sure you are spending your money well and investing for the future. Be smart and make a budget for your big dreams. Make sure you are not obsessing over money issues or status symbols.
- Are you self-sabotaging or are you taking care of your health.? Do you exercise, and do you eat healthily? Make sure to move your body. Buy organic foods and not food full of toxic pesticides, hormones, GMOs. Are you feeding your body what it needs, or are you comfortable eating? Reenergize yourself.
- Take a good look at your partnerships. Are you holding on to someone you should let go of out of fear of being alone? Are you obsessive, possessive, and perhaps even jealous? Are you compromising with your inner truth and staying in a job you know you should have left a while back, but you are afraid that you will not survive without it? Be brave and let go; trust that a new door will open that will lead you to an even better future when you do.
- It is not recommended to charge your crystals during the lunar eclipse.
- Find a balance between the masculine and feminine
- Write a gratitude journal.
