NOV 7/8 Lunar Eclipse 2022
When we have a Solar Eclipse alignment, the sun and the moon occupy the same spot in the sky. A Lunar Eclipse – they are in direct opposition – across the sky from each other.
Solar Energies represent radiant expansive pulsating outward flow of plasma gas and heat and light – very firey. Often associated with the masculine yang energies.
Lunar Energies are more reflective, inward, contemplative, yin settling quieting energies. More associated with the feminine yin energetic.
This yin yang across the sky opposition energy is a powerful Celestial Gateway. Celestial Bodies that are in opposition balance each other out. One rises while the other sets. One lowers in the sky and the other goes higher. They also create a magnetic pull-pole-dynamic attraction that influences everything between them.
This includes YOU! As an earthling, all of these astronomical events we track are geocentric, are events as observed from here on earth. So, the horizon line of this rise and set polar opposite is the earth line. We sit in the middle. This very moment in earth long lens history is a short moment in galactic time when the disc of the sun and the moon happen to make the same diameter disc in the sky, so that they can cover and eclipse each other like this. And YOU incarnated on this planet at this brief moment in time! Why are you here? What is your soul purpose? What role do you fill in the big picture of humanity and globally? What is your heart and soul calling and how are you fulfilling it?
These are the questions that a lunar eclipse pull unearths. We dig up all the old programming that gets in our way. We honor and observe the shadows, using them as teaching tools. In fact, they get brought front and center, highlighted by a Lunar Eclipse.
You are smack in the middle of the strong magnetic pull to your need for quiet alone time and introspection, and your soul longing to make a big impact for the whole globe. Each Lunar Eclipse contains this magnetic pull of opposites alignment, as does each Full Moon. The Moon moves across the sky along the zodiac constellations rapidly, changing placements by the day. The Sun has its annular journey across the zodiac constellations, building out a solar year.
Where the Sun and the Moon sit in the sky influence the solar system magnetics. The pull of the planets, especially the ones closer to earth, have a strong geometric and magnetic influence. They influence the body of the earth, the whole planet, AND they influence YOUR personal multidimensional energy field- heart, mind, soul and body.
For the November 7/8 Lunar Eclipse
The Sun sits in the constellation of Libra. It sits exactly with Mercury (conjunction) and right near Venus. The Sun and Mercury sit on one of the “scales of justice”, while Venus sits on the center of the scale. Fascinating that it coincides with Election Day here in the USA. Scales tipping energies are present!
The Moon is just entering the constellation Taurus. It sits near Uranus, in the same neighborhood as Mars, and triangulates with the Pleiades, Hyades and Aldebaran.
Mars has been marching backwards through the horns of the bull in retrograde motion and will meet with the moon and the Pleiades later this month.

Mars is a very “personal power” planet. Adding it to the Lunar neighborhood for the eclipse increases the fire of the inner transformation. Many of us are feeling this passionate fire and flow, in the form of strong emotions. Often deep and unexpected emotional reactions to things. This has been building for the two week eclipse corridor with the Oct 25 Solar Eclipse.
Those of us on the East Coast of North America will look to the skies from 3:30 am until sunrise to view this eclipse. The eclipse peaks for us just as the sun is rising and the moon is setting, so the hours around 4:30 - 6:30 am will be good viewing.
When we look at all the players, see the whole board, it can help us orchestrate our big picture advances. We can use these solar system alignments and gateways and influences to move us forward on the path and accelerate our journey. Use this time to clear away the old. The old narratives, the old ways of thinking, the patterns of damaging or draining self-talk. The judgements of self and others, the reactions to triggers and events.
The act of jettisoning anything that is no longer serving your highest and greatest good is an act of self-mastery. It is an act of inner freedom!
Happy Eclipsing friends – we sure are doing a deep inner dive this fall!
