Historic Taurus Lunar Eclipse

Tonight’s Lunar eclipse is making history. It will be the longest partial Lunar Eclipse in 1,000 years!

Beginning at 10:02 pm PST, 11/18/21, and ending at 4:03 am PST in the wee hours of Friday the 19th, with the peak happening at 1:03 am PST.

It is technically a partial eclipse because a small portion of the Moon will not enter the umbra (full shadow) of the earth, but the majority will. So, we can expect that reddish tint, which is actually the light of the sun refracting around the earth, revealing all of the sunrises and sunsets that are happening around the earth simultaneously!

What will that look like? Something like this:

As you can see, it should be similar to a "blood moon" with a small portion remaining lighter.

Nodes of the Moon are Shifting

For the past year and a half, we've had the North Node in Gemini and the South Node in Sagittarius, but they are shifting soon into the Taurus/Scorpio axis.

This eclipse is the first in Taurus in 9 years. The earthiness of Taurus is inviting us to enjoy the fruits of life!

While life has felt very "full steam ahead" lately, the feeling of this is much more akin to “let's take a moment (or 50) to breathe”...take some time to be fully in your body.

The Moon loves to be in Taurus. She is sensual and wants us to experience all of the gifts of being sex & chocolate!

So go out and revel in the gorgeous partial/blood red Lunar Eclipse!

Sending you much love and many blessings,
