On November 8th, 2022, we’ll experience a Full Moon and Lunar eclipse in Taurus! We’re in eclipse season, and this is the time for big developments, big decisions, and big events.
Lunar Eclipses occur with Full Moon, which occurs when the Sun and Moon oppose in the zodiac. Lunar Eclipses are times of culmination, where we see important results from work we’ve done and decisions we’ve made, so we can experience progress or setbacks depending on what was done.
This makes Lunar eclipses highly emotional times. With the Sun and Moon opposing, the Moon is the ruler of our emotions, so our emotions run high, and we can be in tune with what we feel.
This Full Moon Lunar Eclipse in Taurus can focus on Taurus matters, which can include:
- Anything dealing with money (Taurus is the sign of money, so this might mean finalizing financial plans, finishing paying something off, getting a raise, or making an important financial decision)
- Anything that impacts self-esteem and self-worth (we’re often more sensitive and have low confidence with Taurus Full Moons and Lunar eclipses, and need to work on issues that are leading to that; this can help increase confidence)
- Anything involving stability and security (this may mean removing blocks that have prevented stability and security or revealing issues or situations that have caused instability and insecurity)
- Anything involving our senses and the physical world (Venus is the natural ruling planet for Taurus, making this sign sensual and grounded to the physical world; we may focus on improving the connection to the Earth and to our bodies, and we may be more indulgent)
- Anything where we feel stuck (Taurus is the slowest sign and super stubborn, so a Taurus Full Moon Lunar eclipse can help focus on how we’re stuck and how we can get unstuck)
- Anything impacting our ability to be present (Taurus wants to be in the moment and not rush to the next one quickly, so we can focus on what has kept us from being able to be more present, blocks that have kept us from relaxing, and how we can be more grounded)
We previously had a New Moon and Solar eclipse in Scorpio two weeks ago, so energy is running high right now for these eclipses. It’s a big time, and we have a lot to do!
This isn’t the first Full Moon Lunar Eclipse in Taurus, though. There was one last year, on November 19, 2021.
Some of what came to pass at that time can tie into what is happening now. There may be a continuation, and we’re picking up on similar themes.
This Full Moon Lunar Eclipse in Taurus is VERY active!
The eclipse is hitting a lot of planets! To start, it’s opposite Mercury and Venus in Scorpio, which means communication may be difficult thanks to Mercury, and we may have to work harder to get along thanks to Venus.
There can be a lot of misunderstandings and challenges in our dealings with others, and we have to make sure we’re listening and processing. We need to be respectful, and we need to stay calm.
But, we’re likely feeling extra stressed and stifled thanks to the Full Moon Lunar eclipse in Taurus also square (challenging energy) Saturn in Aquarius, and this can add to the challenges that we’re dealing with. If we’ve done anything that Saturn doesn’t feel was right, we can feel punished in a big way.
Saturn always wants us to be smart, responsible, ethical, and disciplined, so that’s the way we need to behave. Otherwise, it’s just one problem after another.

And then the biggie – the eclipse is conjunct (aligned with) Uranus in Taurus! Uranus is the planet of the sudden, unexpected change, the unconventional, and the future, so this eclipse comes with big energy for those things.
We may be pushing for some big important change and want to see things done differently from how they’ve always been. The status quo has gotta go!
That’s been a theme for the last few years, and it’s not stopping now.
The conjunction with Uranus also really pushes the getting unstuck energy with this eclipse. Uranus can be incredibly helpful for getting out of ruts, and this may happen suddenly and unexpectedly.
April 2022 was also aligned with Uranus in Taurus, so some of this may tie into energy that was happening in April as well.
And none of this is even mentioning that at the time of this eclipse, Mars will be retrograde in Gemini (adding to the communication problems), and Jupiter will be back in Pisces and anaretic (super sensitive position riling us up even more).
