On October 28, 2023, a full moon and major lunar eclipse in Taurus marks the last eclipse of the year. Eclipses occur in pairs, a solar eclipse and a lunar eclipse, each addressing different aspects of an issue. The lunar eclipse follows the new moon solar eclipse in Libra on October 14, 2023. These eclipses mark the end of the Taurus-Scorpio cycle which began on November 19, 2021.
This two-year cycle primarily focused on areas such as resources, values, power, wealth, and self-esteem. It is essential to step back and reflect on how these eclipses have impacted and transformed your life.
Lunar eclipses in astrology
In astrology, lunar eclipses are celestial moments that take place during the full moon, when the Earth casts its shadow on the Moon. They mark moments of emotional transformation and symbolize the need to face our inner selves.
Unlike regular full moons, lunar eclipses bring unexpected changes and are linked to larger patterns that influence our lives.
Expectations for the Final Lunar Eclipse of 2023 in Taurus: Spiritual Changes and the Influence of Venus
This lunar eclipse in Taurus is particularly significant.
Because it coincides with the Halloween period, a period when it is believed that the spiritual world is more accessible. She’s making major changes while being influenced by Venus in Virgo, which can cause concerns about relationships and self-confidence.
It can revive old patterns, but in association with Jupiter retrograde in Taurus, it will encourage people to react differently by favoring caring relationships.
This lunar eclipse marks the conclusion of the Taurus-Scorpio eclipse cycle, which began in 2021.
During these two years, themes linked to growth, abundance, finances, and security were predominant. Now the focus is on harmonizing the spiritual and material aspects of life, as well as finding ambition and alignment. This is a good time to appreciate how far we have come since the beginning of this cycle.
