Full Moons are a time for releasing and relinquishing. If you have an excess in your life, this is the time for it to go down the drain. Through silent meditation, exchanging of thoughts, or spiritual practice, Full Moons moons are a point when we can let go.
The Full Moon lunar eclipse in Taurus on November 8 is a major astrological event. The finale is here, foreshadowing the much-awaited end of eclipse season. Simply put, this Full Moon will bring forth the long-awaited results of your romantic and financial investments. The theme of this Full Moon is fairness and equity, which can make some individuals feel nervous around Venus-ruled subjects like love, money, and beauty. There is no need to fear what feels good, nor should you project ill feelings onto people who are indulging in pleasure, as long as they are not knowingly causing intentional harm.
This Full Moon takes place as Venus—the ruling planet of Taurus—is in the zodiac sign of Scorpio, appreciating joy in all its forms may be difficult to reach. Venus is in detriment in Scorpio, meaning it takes a little longer to process happiness. Instead of pure bliss, great experiences can feel bittersweet. Prolonged and complicated grief may surface despite attempts to deny its existence—please be gentle with yourself during this eclipse. Know it is okay to be human, and sometimes being human means being less than okay.
In moments of sorrow, remember that you are surrounded by people capable of hearing you, seeing you, and understanding you—we are united in grief. Lately, one of my new favorite expressions is si vis amari, ama: To be loved, love. You might have moments during or in the days after this Full Moon in which you struggle with anger or sadness. If so, be still and do what you need to soothe your aches, woes, and worries. This Full Moon lunar eclipse will be on November 8th, 2022, at 6:00 AM EST. The night before is a great time to write your journal prompts before you enter the realm of dreams.

Read your horoscope for the Full Moon lunar eclipse in Taurus:
Aries, you may be putting on a strong front—is that necessary? When in a vulnerable position, it’s natural to want to prove yourself, but are you overcompensating? Remember, dear ram, your independent streak may not always be helpful. Trust that you are allowed to feel your feelings and share them, too.
You and Aries have a lot in common during this Full Moon, Aries (go ahead and read their horoscope, too). Just like Aries, you can benefit from reflecting on how you might be overly self-reliant. Being able to care for yourself and having the independence not to be bothered by certain situations and people is freeing—trust me, I know. However, the risk you make by shutting yourself out from the world blocks you from transformational relationships. Take time to journal about how you cope with loss. How do your coping mechanisms show up in relationships with others?
Gemini, it’s possible to live too deeply in your intuition, to the point that you overflow and drown yourself in all the probable possibilities. The universe lets us make split decisions as need be. Trust that you will know how to navigate every outcome you are faced with to the best of your abilities. Ground yourself in the here and now. If you can, now is an excellent time to move on.
Be careful who you imagine a future with, Cancer. There are many perspectives on flirting, and some people take you much more seriously than you intend. You do not owe anyone anything, but be sure you’re mindful of who you entertain the possibility of tomorrow with. The Full Moon might present an abundance of desires to you. You’re always allowed to say no!
Work is an inescapable part of the human experience. You may not dream of labor, but if you find your work life seeping into your dreams, set aside time each morning to journal about what crossed your mind. Our dreams can reveal so much to us; they do not exist simply for bedtime entertainment. Are you using work to distract yourself?
Oh, Virgo, you and Sagittarius can have a whole conversation about this Full Moon lunar eclipse. You sometimes hesitate to express yourself immediately, and right now, you could be holding your tongue unnecessarily. This Full Moon brings up a message about the intellectualization of feelings. Take time to journal about how you react when you feel shut down and intimidated. Do you let people know how you’re feeling, or do you self-isolate?
Libra, there is trickery afoot. The planets are aligned in your chart’s house of intimacy and values, suggesting a lack of motivation to seek external comfort. If you or someone else is moving in an inconsistent and sketchy fashion, consider why that might be. Stay patient and aware.
Slow down, babe! And I am using the term “babe” quite literally here. We are all baby-like in some respects, unless you’re an all-knowing being (and sorry, but you’re not, Scorpio). This Full Moon allows you to recognize your standards and personal development around relationships. There is no need to rush to let someone in, nor do you need to push someone away. Allow people to reveal themselves to you and then respond with a decision that’s not based on emotional impulses.
Dear Sagittarius, how much attention are you paying to your body, and at what cost? As the winter months approach, it’s extra important for you to treat yourself well. Treat yourself with kindness during this Full Moon lunar eclipse. Plenty of yummy meals and tasty snacks will be present to you. Enjoy!
Capricorn, we’re all adults here (at least I hope so). You’re going to do whatever you want to do, so I will not mother you. The stars suggest that some lousy networking is occurring within your realm. Perhaps you’re flirting with someone you know you shouldn’t—you may think it’ll stay under wraps, but don’t count on it. This Full Moon lunar eclipse reminds us that what is meant to be revealed will be revealed in time. Be smart.
Make sure you’re getting all your work done, Aquarius! The freedom to do what we want so long as we meet our responsibilities is great. Just make sure that you’re actually meeting your responsibilities: attending company events, keeping up with your coworkers, and tuning into company gossip.
This year, your continued message is to speak up. You have acquired plenty of knowledge, and your next step is to take risks. The nice thing to do is to allow yourself moments of foolishness for the benefit of others. Ask questions you think are stupid, because someone wants to know the answer. Create clapbacks to information that is inaccurate and potentially harmful; you may find that there’s a whole community that understands what you are saying. You may not express yourself perfectly, but you can be the first in a string of dominos to fall.
