Feeling a bit eerie? Not to worry because it’s not for nothing. On today’s November 8th date, the moon reaches peak fullness paired with an impactful lunar eclipse in Taurus. On election day? Coincidence? I think not. This lunar eclipse is opposing Scorpio, activating the North and South Nodes in our astrological charts, which symbolize our past and transformative points in our lifetime. With the moon exalted in Taurus - safe in that sign - and Uranus close in range, the energy tailors towards the unexpected, prompting radical changes. Though this might sound terrifying, it is nothing to fear because you’ve already been living in this energy for the past couple weeks. What? Let me explain. (Plus this is the last lunar eclipse till 2025).

Beginning on October 25th, with the partial solar eclipse in Scorpio, the gateway opened, illuminating karmic cycles and putting them to rest, with today's lunar eclipse being the final day marking its closure. However, given the magnitude of the lunar eclipse, its energy will continue to exist for the next three months following today’s cosmic event. Being as the moon reached fullness today - which the energy exists for 3 days prior and 3 days after - paired with the eclipse, expect an emotional tidal wave. 

How Can I Best Use This Energy To Benefit Me?

Typically with an eclipse, you can trust what is happening around you, meaning your visions become a bit more grounded. For example, the universe may spotlight an emotional trigger or you may feel yourself gravitating towards a negative thought pattern you had thought you let go of. This doesn’t mean it's trying to harm you with it, but merely tell you that something has not been dealt with. That perhaps you put this something on the back-burner. I mean think about it… an eclipse literally is when the earth blocks the light from the sun that creates a full moon.

Why is it doing this? For those of you who have been creating vision boards or applying manifestation techniques over the past year, take this recent energy as the eclipse telling you “I am trying to give you what you want, but to do so, you must let go of these blockages.” Honor these shifts and  remember everything the universe does is in your favor.
