Eclipses in Taurus and Scorpio
The fixed signs are our rocks. Much like mythological Atlas, they carry the world on their shoulders, solid, reliable, strong. They give us certainty and continuity in an often uncertain world. When they believe in something, they own it fully, relentlessly, unchanged until it is proven otherwise. They exert total control on what is theirs.
Between late 2021 and 2023, these signs will get the chance to level up in their lives. However, this will not be a walk in the park for those affected, who will be shocked by the speed of change and likely resistant to it. What we take for granted will be turned upside down, as a new natural order emerges. With Uranus in the driving seat of 3 out of the 4 eclipses of the year, there will be no time to prepare for these quantum leaps!
History teaches us that the combination of eclipses with Uranus conjunct the North Node in Taurus can trigger unprecedented realignments in the natural order and our appreciation of it.
The previous four such alignments challenged our certainties in:
All our most basic and obvious points of reference are subject to a upgrade, as a new lens is applied to our physical reality. Once seen, it cannot be unseen. What Brave New World awaits us?
Eclipses are like the regular monthly New and Full Moons, but with more far-reaching (6 months to a year) and life-altering effects. At the highest level, an eclipse can manifest in one of two ways:
These themes are likely to be an area of focus over the next 18 months:
How These Eclipses Affect You
While signs give us the how and the planets the what, the houses in your chart where an eclipse lands gives you the sphere of life affected. On the premise that Lunar Eclipses are similar to (but significantly more potent than) Full Moons, while Solar eclipses are like New Moons, you’ll find what you need in my Full Moon (Lunar Eclipse) and New Moon (Solar Eclipse) posts. (Do let me know on social if they resonate!) Please remember however that a chart should always be considered in its entirety. An astrological event can trigger contrasting and bewildering experiences in your personal chart.
Learn From The Past
With the Lunar Nodes changing signs every 18 months, and returning to the same sign and house polarity every 9 and 18.6 years, eclipse themes tend to repeat at these cyclical intervals, with story arcs evolving with the same cadence. You can therefore predict the future by looking back into your past. By revisiting the same themes at these intervals, you can either bring them to conclusion or develop them further to springboard your next life chapter. Here are the date ranges of past eclipses in these two signs.
