Lunar Eclipse and Full Moon 5 degrees Taurus nine minutes.
6.24am (AEST) 29 October 2023
Look to the area of life (house) where this 5 degree Eclipse/Full Moon will fall in your natal chart as it will give you an idea of where to expect change.People who have any of the fixed signs as Scorpio/Taurus/Leo or Aquarius between 3 – 7 degrees of these signs in planets or points in their chart will feel the energy more potently than others.
In this event chart Mercury, Messenger of the gods, is conjunct the Sun and Mars, the masculine planet of war and fire. Scorpio is the most powerful sign of the zodiac. Usually there are deep psychological issues hidden in Scorpio’s treasure chest within our personal subconscious that need to be made conscious, owned, accepted and consciously worked through. It is when release occurs that our internal treasure chest can open fully to expose our unique gifts and talents.
Conjunct the Full Moon/Eclipse is Jupiter, representing the energy within us that seeks to aid spiritual growth and expansion.
It looks to me as if Jupiter’s energy will be doing its best to open and expand our minds to perceive wider horizons. Be open to experience opportunities that may be presented for overseas travel, or the expansion of your spiritual growth path. Also be alert for the exposure of formerly hidden information that can bring greater understanding. This may be on a personal or global scale. There may also be the global or national release of dark manipulative information that can suck you in because of its emotional content. Be alert and allow your body to register truth. At this time it’s vitally important to maintain a high vibration by bringing our minds and bodies into equilibrium. Under no circumstances allow yourself to fall into another 3D societal trap.
This eclipse offers us the opportunity to harmonise the right and left hemispheres of our brain. Our left brain is full of ‘facts’ that are often proved to be incorrect. We can use our left brain to over-analyse and criticise ourselves and others, unable to see life beyond a limited perspective. On the other hand, the right brain sees a bigger picture, can understand life through concepts, symbols, metaphors, analogies and broader realities therefore embracing a wider perspective. I often get my students to visualise, during a meditation, a horizontal figure of eight pattern in front of their third eye. I suggest they trace this infinity symbol with an imaginary pencil, placing the intention to harmonise their right and left brain hemispheres as they do so.
Both the Sun and Moon are in hard square aspect to transiting Pluto suggesting internal stress and challenges to overcome. Tempers may suddenly flare up, and arguments abound. These issues, and other deeper ones, may come through the themes of money, power, sex or death. Transformation is in the air! Are you open to it? Are you willing to move off your comfort zone?
Knowing that an eclipse energy can last for at least a year I’ll check what eclipse expert, astrologer Bernadette Brady in her book The Eagle and the Lark, has to say about this particular eclipse series.
To paraphrase, she says that everything is moving at great speed and either a pending potential crisis could manifest or huge obstacles will suddenly clear.
Of course our personal experiences depends upon our levels of self-awareness relative to our thoughts and associated emotions. May the Force of Light be with you.
May you open your minds and hearts to receive and integrate these messages, and allow the love guiding them to fuel your daily life,
Blessings and Love,
