The whirlwind nature of Scorpio season isn’t even close to over. Last month’s pre-Halloween solar eclipse had every zodiac sign’s deepest fears, drawbacks, and emotions on full display; while it offered a period of necessary release, it was far from comfortable. Since the next big lunation will be accompanied by similar themes, the November 2022 full moon total lunar eclipse will affect the same individuals (fixed signs) most — but in very different ways.
Scorpio is a sign all about resisting change, especially when it’s outside of one’s control. Since eclipses tend to thrust you into powerful upheavals, embracing these shifts amid Scorpio season hasn’t been, and will not be, easy for anyone. During the upcoming total lunar eclipse, every individual will be encouraged to lean into comfort, sustainability, and pleasure. But with the event taking place in Scorpio’s opposing sign of Taurus, it’ll deeply impact those with the same fixed modality.
A lunar eclipse occurs during the full moon phase, when the sun and moon are in opposite signs. The eclipse effect is caused by Earth positioning itself between the sun and the moon, causing a shadow to be cast across the moon’s surface. Eclipses only take place about four times every year; since they’re somewhat rare (the last lunar eclipse took place on May 16), they’re usually pretty impactful. Lunar eclipses, in particular, resemble full moons, so they tend to bring themes that were previously hidden to light.
Due to the unpredictability of eclipses, it’s not typically a time that calls for action. Sitting back and paying attention to what the eclipse reveals will serve you better in the long run.
