The moon in a dark sky

Your Guide to Surviving November’s Full Moon Eclipse

Feel the earth shift under your feet.

This coming Thursday, November 19, the so-called Beaver Moon will be at its fullest and brightest in the night sky. Full moons always come with revelations and activation, and we often struggle to sleep or contain our emotions during this time of the month. It is no coincidence that full moons are associated with madness – the word ‘lunatic’ is directly derived from lunar, the Latin word for moon. The build-up of emotion on a full moon is the cosmos’ wonderful way of pushing us to release what no longer serves and celebrate all that we have worked for in the last month!

Lunar Eclipse – Beginnings and Endings

In my previous post, I talked about the start of the eclipse season in early November, which will take us up to the end of the year. The next two months will be a powerful time of change as eclipses signify beginnings and endings. This month’s full moon in Taurus is all about closing out what we have done in 2021. So, whether you want to say “good riddance” (and you wouldn’t be the only one!) or reflect on the good times, this is the week to work on releasing thoughts, inner narratives, and attitudes that you do not want to carry forward into 2022.

Eclipse energy is sudden and strong. Even if we feel like we’re not ready for the changes it brings, this energy can help us to see this change as a shift in what the highest part of you is truly craving. Lunar eclipses are also connected with shocking or surprising revelations, so it is important that we remain out of ‘reactionary mode’ as much as possible.

What the Taurus Full Moon Means for Your Zodiac Sign

Full moons mark an emotionally tense time for all. A lunar eclipse adds fuel to the fire, initiating change and disruptions to our day-to-day lives. But there’s no need to panic – these changes don’t have to be bad or scary. Continue reading to understand the impact of this Taurus full moon on your zodiac sign and learn how to navigate what’s coming your way.

Aries & Libra

This Beaver Moon represents activation and maybe some discomfort for you. Perhaps you’re feeling like you want to say something, but can’t relate to those around you? Be careful with your words – repercussions of what we say can linger long after the feelings that propelled us to say it has passed. The best use of your drive and courage is in uniting people. If you feel like sitting this out and finding some solitude at this eclipse, consider this your permission slip to put yourself first and do exactly that.

Taurus & Scorpio

With the sun in Scorpio (how we shine) and the moon in Taurus (our deeper desires), this is a very personal-feeling moon. Your strength lies in your sheer resilience through any change, especially when the waters underneath us are changing direction constantly. Your estimation of your own worth is far more important than the validation from others right now. If you find yourself measuring value in terms of how your work, ideas, or plans are perceived, then this moon will highlight that in some way. Take the lesson and make the shift!

Gemini & Sagittarius

This eclipse energy is happening super strongly for you, transforming your natural ability to absorb and imbibe the many different possibilities opening to you. Are you feeling a call to dive into what feels truthful right now? Any areas of your life where you are anything but your authentic self will be highlighted in the coming weeks, so be sure to set some boundaries and get ready to step into a new ‘destined’ version of your fullness.

Cancer & Capricorn 

Venus – the planet of love, money, and harmony – remains in retrograde until March 2022 and this will impact you the most! Mercury in retrograde has become super popular for its association with matters going a bit haywire, particularly related to e-mails, online dating, and generally getting our wires crossed. But did you know you are far more likely to run into an ex during Venus in retrograde? Venus is all about value and, when she’s in retrograde motion, this plays out in strange ways. For example, if you meet somebody right now or go for a job interview, first impressions may be different than what they would usually be. In spite of your forthright nature, you are being asked to see the slow burn potential of investments (love and finance) and the merits of building a foundation over time.

Leo & Aquarius

This lunar eclipse is the perfect time to bring our attention to where we might be blocking the transformation that we want to make within ourselves. This is such a powerful time to deal with emotional matters as we cannot shift negative thoughts and beliefs if we do not choose to explore them. You really don’t like being caught off guard, so why not step into being a true co-creator of change? This is the definitive time to call in all that you may have been dragging your feet on!

Virgo & Pisces

Remember the old saying, ‘patience is a virtue’? Well, this is super highlighted during this full moon, inviting you to take your time and smell the roses. In making the most of your adaptability, remember to have faith in your spiritual side and pay attention to what inspires you. This is not the time for big moves, but to surrender to the call of your desires and creativity.

Suggested Full Moon Ritual and Journal Prompts

Take a walk in nature – somewhere that feels good. Notice your feet on the earth/water as you go. Before journaling/releasing, find a spot where you can sit for at least five minutes connecting to exactly where you are. Reflect on these prompts:

  • Where in my life am I placing value on things that no longer resonate? 
  • What within me needs to be let go? What no longer serves me?
  • Where or with whom do I find a sense of grounding?
  • Where do I feel a sense of abundance in my life and where do I feel a sense of ‘not enough’?

Frequently Asked Questions

Any tips to make the most of October’s cosmic energies?

Certainly! Here are some tips to make the most of October’s cosmic energies:

  1. Set Intentions: Take some time to reflect on what you want to manifest or achieve during the month. Write down your intentions and goals, focusing on what aligns with your true desires.
  2. Embrace Balance: October brings an energetic shift as we enter the autumn season (or spring, depending on your hemisphere). Embrace the balance between light and dark, and strive to find equilibrium in your life. This can include finding time for self-care, nurturing relationships, and balancing work and play.
  3. Connect with Nature: Spend time outdoors and connect with the natural world around you. Take walks in serene settings, enjoy the crisp fall air, or marvel at the blooming spring flowers. Wear bracelets from our collection to keep yourself calm and manifest positive energy. Nature has a way of grounding us and helping us tap into the energy of the seasons.
  4. Practice Mindfulness: Engage in mindfulness practices such as meditation, yoga, or journaling. These activities can help you tune in to your inner self, be present in the moment, and cultivate a sense of calmness amidst the hustle and bustle of life.
  5. Harness Moon Phases: Pay attention to the moon phases throughout October. Set intentions during the New Moon, release what no longer serves you during the Full Moon, and use the waxing and waning phases for personal growth and reflection.
  6. Seek Cosmic Guidance: Utilize astrology resources, such as our zodiac essential oil mists to gain insights into the astrological influences specific to your zodiac sign. This can help you navigate challenges, make informed decisions, and embrace opportunities.

What are some mindfulness exercises I can try?

We recommend Breathing Meditation. Find a comfortable spot, close your eyes, and focus your attention on your breath. Take slow, deep breaths, observing the sensation of the breath entering and leaving your body. Whenever your mind wanders, gently bring your focus back to the breath. Practice this for a few minutes to calm the mind and promote relaxation.

You can also practise a Body Scan. Lie down or sit comfortably. Gradually shift your attention to different parts of your body from head to toe, noticing any sensations or tension. Allow yourself to relax and release any tension you may be holding. This exercise helps bring awareness to your physical body and promotes relaxation.

This October, we must remind ourselves to focus on Mindful Eating. Try some of our superfoods to keep that gut clean and mind active!

10,000 steps a day will keep your October peaceful. Walking Meditation is highly recommended as well. Find a quiet space to walk slowly and mindfully. Focus your attention on the physical sensations of walking—feeling the pressure of your feet against the ground, the movement of your muscles, and the swaying of your body. Be fully present with each step, let go of distractions and embrace the experience of walking with our newest active wear.

Do I have to be a specific zodiac sign to read my horoscope?

Your horoscope is typically based on your Sun sign, which is determined by your birth date. However, you can also explore horoscopes for your rising sign (ascendant) or Moon sign for additional insights. It can be interesting to explore horoscopes for different signs to gain a broader perspective.
