November 19, 2021 – Taurus Full Moon Lunar Eclipse

November 19th is more than only a full moon in the sign of Taurus – it is also a powerful lunar eclipse.

There is always a span of 2 weeks for cycles of full and new moons, but for a lunar eclipse the effects can extend a month before or after, or in some cases the changes they bring can be even more powerful and echo long after they have happened. Are you ready for what this lunar eclipse in Taurus will do for you?

Traditionally, the moon is exalted in Taurus, an excellent position to feel your best and delight in emotional comforts. But, we have more than the moon with us on this night. The moon will also form a square with Jupiter, the happy go lucky planet of fortune, and also form a trine with Pluto. This is an incredible aspect meant to shake things up and could even mean some of you receive a sudden and unexpected windfall.

We also need to remember that Venus is a big deal during this lunation, since she rules Taurus (and Libra!) She is preparing to go into retrograde and will enter her shadow in Capricorn on November 17, and this will have an interesting effect on our lunar eclipse.

We may feel more compelled to consider our sense of security as it relates to our finances, our quality of life, and the comforts it affords us. The big a-ha moment in connection with the eclipse may have already shown itself, possibly in small ways that eventually become too big to ignore – maybe something went missing from an account, the budget was off, a discrepancy has you questioning something you thought was solid. The money may be just the tip of the iceberg that causes you to awaken to a new understanding of your current situation, whether it’s strictly a matter of numbers or a relationship that needs changing.

The moon is in charge of our intuition and emotions. It is in the fixed sign of Taurus, and the sun is in the fixed sign of Scorpio. Venus and Uranus will offer support, with the sun and Pluto in nice alignment. However, keep your wits about you, as Mars and Uranus will not be as well supported. Mars and Uranus will be in opposition to each other, Mars in Scorpio and Uranus in Taurus.

With Thanksgiving about to be underway in the next week, recent politics and the general public mood are going to create some heat at many dinner tables. People will be hot tempered and might find themselves less compromising then they have been. Mars also rules police and military, and it could be that there will be more run ins than usual with enforcement. Stay safe during the holidays and resist over indulging!

For this eclipse, the fixed signs will feel it keenly since this is where the sun and moon will be, but the north and south nodes are in mutable signs. While we are used to and perhaps even feel comfortable with our current arrangements, the shifting energy of this eclipse will force us to move into new friendships, acquaintances, living situations, or environments. You are yet another step further in a journey that may have been kicked off during our last tumultuous new moon, or only just getting started. Stay centered and focused. Since this Taurus-Scorpio eclipse cycle is just starting to kick off in our cosmic sky, everything that happens during this November eclipse is likely to be only part of the story. This impending eclipse is the first eclipse to occur on the Taurus-Scorpio axis – changes are coming, and they will continue to come for about 2 years as the cycle runs its course.

November 4, 2021 Scorpio New Moon Astrology Forecast

November’s new moon is the preview leading up to the November 19 eclipse, so mark your calendars! Things are about to change, some slow and some fast, but be sure that you will look back on events and only see the changes in hindsight.

The New Moon is a new beginning and explosive because it is in Scorpio and is in exact opposition to Uranus, the planet of genius, knowledge and radical change. Also in play, lucky Jupiter in the air sign of Aquarius, while the sun will square Saturn the disciplinarian. As the Sun moves into Scorpio this year and the Moon and planets in our solar system move at different speeds and patterns, each of us will experience this new moon and the upcoming eclipse changes in unique ways.

The new moon rising high in the sky on November 4, 2021 and casts us through a Scorpionic journey to get to the bottom of everything. Expect friction and sudden change, but these moments of tension will bring us in touch with our deep emotions and private fears. Scorpio brings the gift of inner spiritual wealth if you are willing to peer past the occulted and move with it. 

Scorpio rules elimination, and this will be an excellent new moon to clear out the old, in anticipation both of the upcoming eclipse and also the new year into 2022. Consider your new projects and initiatives, you may wish to revamp how you see yourself and how others see you, and you may even be looking at your current partnerships or romances and wondering if there is something more exciting around the corner. You won’t know until you commit to more changes, some of which will be easy and some difficult, but all will require your full commitment and conviction. This new moon will help you kick off a cycle of personal intentions.  If you are stuck in a stagnant place, you can use the energy of the New Moon to bring about a change in your life. This New Moon is aligned with inspiring change and thinking about what needs to be changed in your world, so move forward and adjust your intentions accordingly.    

Venus, planet of love, pleasure, attitude and money, moves into Capricorn on November 5. Now may be the time to block and delete romantic connections that no longer serve you. Social media or a dating app might be the stage for your next romantic adventure. Alternatively, you might find technology brings you unexpected benefit in work partnerships. This proves to be part of Venus’s good fortune, and if you play it right, it could be quite lucrative! 

The fixed signs will find themselves balking at change that the new moon presents, but gather your courage and shift perspective! Especially for Taurus, who is going to feel the earth shake when the full moon lunar eclipse strikes on November 19 — take note, and be ready to meet new challenges. If you are already familiar with Scorpio depths, you may feel challenges less, and reap the benefits. Examining methods of self-improvement would be well supported by this new moon. 

With three planets in Scorpio, Mercury, Mars and the Sun will bring even more energy behind this full moon, highlighting action, goals, and communications. Scorpio will support your financial goals as well, encouraging the gathering of resources that will culminate with Scorpio’s polarity, Taurus. 

Venus will be involved, moving into Capricorn on November 5, this earth sign will lend you grounding strength and extra conviction, lending even more support to the upcoming lunar eclipse. Scorpio will flirt with your greatest fears, but the new moon can help you overcome them and take the leap. Venus will ask you questions about what you desire, how others see you and value you. While Scorpio may intensify the feeling of seriousness, but keep your door open for the possibility of whimsical fun.
