On November 19th, 2021 we have a Full Moon and Lunar Eclipse at 27° Taurus.
This is the first eclipse on the Taurus-Scorpio axis – a very important Eclipse, since it will set the tone for the upcoming 2-year eclipse season.
While the Lunar Eclipse in Taurus is classified as a “Partial Eclipse” since the Moon is a micromoon – the close proximity to the North Node of the Moon will make this eclipse as intense as any other total eclipse.
The earth will still cast a shadow over the Moon – for a long time, a record of 3 and a half hours – but since the Moon is at apogee, the Moon won’t turn red. The huge transformative potential is there, but unlike Total Eclipses which have an “I can’t escape my fate” feel, this time we do have a choice.
Full Moon And Lunar Eclipse – Taurus vs Scorpio
This is the first Eclipse on the Taurus-Scorpio axis. While the Lunar Nodes are still in Gemini and Sagittarius, we will definitely note the energy shift.
If in the past 1 and a half year we’ve been busy arguing (South Node in Sagittarius) on social media (North Node in Gemini), at this Lunar Eclipse things will suddenly get serious, like life (Taurus) and death (Scorpio) serious.
The Taurus and Scorpio axis is what we value. The Full Moon Eclipse in Taurus will ask us to find what truly matters to us – and as always with the Nodes, we have two ways to approach the “how to”: take the safe route, or venture into the unknown.
The danger with the South Node in Scorpio is getting stuck in the “same old”, a masochistic approach to life “to get what I want I have to go to hell first”.
On the other side of the zodiac, the North Node in Taurus invites us to keep things simple and to stop obsessing about things that haven’t even happened. Yes, we are worthy. Yes, we deserve the good things in life. Yes, there’s no caveat.
However, we can’t just cut off the Scorpionic tail of the dragon (even if we know it’s poisonous). We shouldn’t forget those hard lessons around betrayal, the sacrifices we made to survive in a harsh world.
Learning from the past – knowing what can go wrong – can help us find the sense of security the Full Moon in Taurus needs.
Full Moon Square Jupiter – Quo Vadis, Domine
The Lunar Eclipse is square Jupiter and trine Pluto, coming with an incredible pull to transform our belief system. We are at a crossroads. Something very fundamental about us, who we are, our purpose in life, will be challenged.
If you’ve been turning a blind eye to some harsh lessons from the past – Sun in Scorpio conjunct South Node will remind you of what has been brushed under the carpet. The ghosts of the past will continue to haunt you until you turn on the light.
And if you can’t yet see the future that lies ahead of you, the Moon in Taurus conjunct the North Node will come with a vision of what’s possible. You can change your karmic path IF you get very honest about what truly matters to you.
“Quo Vadis, Domine” means “God, where are you going?” and it is a Christian reference to an imaginary interaction between Jesus and Peter.
As Peter flees the crucifixion in Rome, he has a vision that he meets the risen Jesus carrying a cross. Peter asks Jesus, “Quo Vadis, Domine” and Jesus replies, “Romam eo iterum crucifigi” which means “I am going to Rome to be crucified again”. This vision gives Peter the courage to return to Rome and continue his ministry where he is martyred by crucifixion.
When our deepest beliefs are being challenged, we may also feel as though we are headed to crucifixion, and not necessarily by choice. But it’s in the power of embracing the paradox of the old and the new that we will find redemption and head for a better future.
