About the 2021 Taurus Moon Lunar Eclipse
Starting on 11:18 pm PST Friday November 19, and lasting until 4:03 am the next morning, the sky will be aglow with a Partial Lunar Eclipse in Taurus. While eclipses can have unpredictable energy, they can a powerful time for spiritual transformation and change. If you want to learn about the magical meaning of this eclipse and how to utilize it for personal growth, read on. Otherwise, skip to the section on Taurus moon drink recipes.
About Lunar Eclipses
Lunar eclipses occur during a full moon, a time the moon is opposite the sun, highlighting a polarity between these two astrological forces. For this reason, they can feel like a hyped up full moon. However, eclipses can also be a powerful time for illumination, and often mark a 6 month cycle of thematic energy. With the moon in steady and secure Taurus and the sun in transformative Scorpio, this opposition can highlight the tension between these themes. But, it can also provide an opportunity for immense spiritual growth.
About the Taurus Moon
The moon in Taurus at this time means the focus will be on Taurus-related issues, such as finances, scarcity, security, relationships – things that deal with our connection to the earth and ground our life’s experience. Slow and steady Taurus seeks long term, lasting results when it comes to these endeavors. At the same time, being ruled by Venus, Taurus also enjoys physical pleasures, sensuality, and feeling good about oneself. In contrast with the Scorpio sun, this Taurus eclipse can signify a release of hidden information or truths, which could lead to greater intimacy in relationships.
It’s important to also look at events like this through a seasonal lens – as to what is happening around us. In the Northern Hemisphere, we are in the midst of fall, heading towards winter and the holidays. Old wounds may be triggered, and we are dealing with a loss of sunlight. At the same time, with the change in weather, it is a good time to check the home and develop stability & comfort, and organize finances for winter and the holidays – all themes of the Taurus moon.
In the Southern Hemisphere, the Taurus moon signifies spring time and the coming change of summer. It could be a time to re-energize and use that Taurus earthiness to plant long term seeds, or check in with habits and foundation for growth.
How to Use the Taurus Moon
Given the tendencies of eclipses to make others experience big awakenings and life changes, this Taurus moon lunar eclipse is a good time to luxuriate, to soothe the soul and practice some self-care. Spend some time making your home and nice and comfy, look into your finances, and enjoy some earthly pleasures. Let the moon illuminate some key truths in your life, and meditate on the balance between the secure & steady Taurus energy and the deeply transformative Scorpio energy, to make sure you are being grounded in life, but also not too firm and resistant to change. Balance the inner growth, and cope with simple creature comforts that make you feel good. And, it may not hurt to treat that inner Taurus energy with luscious libation or Taurus moon cocktail.
