Taurus Lunar Eclipse / Full Moon

5 degrees Taurus / Scorpio
The final eclipse in Taurus is coming to fruition. The series of eclipses in the Taurus/Scorpio axis of transformation began with the Taurus Lunar Eclipse on November 19, 2021. With this final Taurus Lunar Eclipse, that which has been cultivated is ripening and ready for release, bringing one chapter to a close. In some significant way, our values have been transformed.
As an archetype, Taurus is concerned with the topic of survival, at its core. The fear of poverty and lack can activate the survival instincts for safety and security. This is why Taurus is associated with self-sufficiency and skill development, so that one can obtain what is needed - such a money, possessions, shelter - in order to sustain life. That dogged determination to put one foot in front of the other and to do what is necessary for survival is an essential character trait of Taurus.

The Great Attractor at 14 Sagittarius is a highly activated degree with...

The May 5 Full Moon in Scorpio is a Lunar Eclipse, and the last eclipse in Scorpio for 8 years, until 2031. Those with Scorpio natal planets and angles have a special understanding of the private, even secretive nature of this sign. Scorpio values deep bonds, consolidates energy and conceals intense emotions. It's the archetypal sorceress within us.
The Lunar Eclipse in Scorpio reveals what's been lurking in the shadows such as secrets hidden from view or truths obscured from consciousness. Simmering emotional resentments can become especially difficult, if not impossible, to suppress. Many of us may even experience a dark night of the soul to deeply unearth the true purpose...
