The November Blood Moon: The Secrets That You Keep
Each eclipse casts its shadow over human affairs for at least six months. Solar eclipses, where the moon blocks the light of the sun, bring us new beginnings and opportunities, whereas lunar eclipses, where the earth gets between the sun and the moon,bring fated endings, breakdowns or breakthroughs. A total lunar eclipse is called a blood moon since the light of the sun must pass through the earth atmosphere to reach the moon, which casts a reddish hue on Earth’s faithful satellite. This eclipse is a lunar blood moon.
This lunar eclipse is on the powerful Scorpio—Taurus axis since Pluto the planet of power and transformation rules Scorpio and Taurus is ruled by the planet of money and love, Venus. At each end of the eclipse other planets cluster at those points lending their power to the configuration. Mercury and Venus join the Scorpio sun, while Uranus joins the Moon in Taurus.
The Scorpio/Taurus axis talks about the use of power on mundane issues. To gain or retain power, Scorpio will hoard secrets. Scorpio peers into the subtext of issues to understand deeply how to use the power it has gathered. This sign isn’t afraid to delve into esoteric practices if it helps to secure the desired effects. Taurus believes in the proper distribution of resources to create a comfortable life. You can say meat and potatoes is the Taurus religion and you would not be wrong. Taurus hates being left out, and Scorpio’s attempt to hide information vexes the bull. The result is an essential struggle between the darkness and the light, secrets and open knowledge, withholding and sharing. This November Blood Moon is about the secrets that you keep.
