On October 28th, 2023, we’ll experience a Lunar Eclipse in Taurus, and this is a significant eclipse. It’s the third Taurus Lunar Eclipse we’ve had in three years (starting in 2021) and the last eclipse we’ll have in Taurus (it’ll be eight years before we have another Taurus eclipse).

Lunar Eclipses occur with Full Moons, and Full Moons occur when the Sun and Moon are opposite one another in the zodiac. Lunar Eclipses are much stronger than Full Moons, though, and their impact can last for about six months before and after they occur.

This Lunar Eclipse is likely going to be strong right around when it occurs through to about January, thanks to Jupiter also touring the sign of Taurus and activating the eclipse when Jupiter ends its retrograde on December 30th (so Jupiter will start moving forward again). 

This Lunar Eclipse in Taurus is HUGE for Endings

Lunar Eclipses are times of heightened emotional energy and can bring major developments and results. This tends to be with things we’ve been working at for a long time and with this eclipse, likely for the last 2-3 years.

All of this combined means that this Lunar Eclipse in Taurus is absolutely monumental for endings and culminations. This tends to be the case with Lunar Eclipses anyway, but it’s much stronger with this being the last in Taurus for some time.

We’re ending one cycle and starting another as the previous Solar Eclipse in Libra was the first in Libra, solidifying the Aries-Libra eclipse set. Eclipses occur in sets of opposing signs and have been in Taurus and Scorpio, and now move to Aries and Libra.

This is the time to finish off what’s been of focus for the last 2-3 years and start moving into a whole new phase of life. The Lunar Eclipse in Taurus offers the chance to finish things, tie things up, gain understanding, and get results, so we’re free to move forward.

Our focus may specifically be on something ruled by Taurus, so it may involve money matters or resources, stability and security, the senses and physical world, where we’re stuck, or our values.

The Lunar Eclipse in Taurus Makes Many Aspects

The eclipse is hitting four planets and is widely opposite Mercury and Mars in Scorpio, sextile (beneficial) Saturn in Pisces, and widely conjunct Jupiter in Taurus.

The opposition to Mercury can bring some news we’re not expecting, and we may have to work harder to find the information that we need. We also have to be more mindful of our words and not read into everything everyone else says to us.

Our minds can be overactive, and we may think things to death. This can keep us stuck, and we won’t budge thanks to stubborn Taurus energy.

We need to be flexible with oppositions, though, so even if it feels like things are out of our control, we still have some ability to make it through well. Adjust on the fly and be smart instead of letting frustration take over.

Frustrations can easily mount thanks to the opposition to Mars, so it’s something we need to make sure we’re dealing with in a healthy way. Outlets for frustration can be helpful, and with the Taurus energy, we might want to pamper and indulge ourselves when we’re feeling out of sorts.

Taurus loves grounding as well, so that can help with any challenges we experience. If we’re grounded enough, we can keep things from spiraling and maintain a hold on ourselves to get through.

The sextile to Saturn is a beneficial aspect, and Saturn rules discipline, long-term goals, and responsibilities. This sextile to Saturn helps with developments and results with those goals we’ve been working on for the last few years, and we can reach the outcomes we’re looking for.

We can manage responsibilities well, though this may require some effort. We can be more disciplined with whatever we’re working on, which helps end one cycle and start another seamlessly.

The conjunction with Jupiter is also quite beneficial, and Jupiter is the planet of expansion, so the results and endings can lead to opportunities to expand our lives. We can be super optimistic with this eclipse, which can be a little unusual with a Lunar Eclipse, but we generally don’t want to get stuck on the dark side.

But, we need to be careful with the expansive energy of Jupiter since this can expand on the bad, and we can quickly end up in difficult situations that are hard to get out of. If things start to sour, work to turn it around quickly to avoid getting stuck in it.

If that can be avoided, then the conjunction with Jupiter is super positive, and we’re open to new options becoming available to us thanks to finishing this cycle.
