Not the longest lunar eclipse...total eclipses can be longer. Just the longest partial eclipse.
Bottom line: The partial lunar eclipse on November 19, 2021, will be the longest since the 15th century, around the time Machu Picchu was being built. The next time Earth will see a partial lunar eclipse that long will be on February 8, 2669. This is, coincidentally, close to the year that the time-travel movie Bill & Ted’s Excellent Adventure begins!
My daughter's friend is having some issues, so I said, "She should have an astrologer look at her chart." Somehow I ended up looking at her chart. Turns out this girl is a NN solar eclipse person, my daughter is a lunar eclipse person, and their draconic moons are conjunct in Pisces (conjunct the girl's draco sun, opposing my daughter's draco sun). I said, "It's fate that you two met" but that is just a platitude to most people. I don't know how else to communicate that this is rare and interesting (to me, anyway.)
A Full Moon Lunar Eclipse occurs early today, at 3:58 AM EST, in the sign of Taurus. We take an urgent interest in the physical world and our own sensual needs and desires at this time. While we should watch for stubbornness, we must discover that some self-interest is healthy and necessary now. This eclipse is the first in a set along the Taurus-Scorpio axis that will continue until October 2023. As the first in a sign set, it can serve as the initial prompt, nudge, or push to make improvements in Taurus- and Scorpio-ruled areas of life in our charts, and feelings of discontent can magnify. Its square to Jupiter speaks to the extravagant nature of this time, and its harmony with Pluto suggests we're determined, ambitious, and ready to see what we need to do to improve. There can be inflated feelings, so it's wise to sit with them for a bit before taking action.
Full Moons always pit opposite signs of the zodiac against each other and invite us to balance the opposing energies. The contrast between earthy, practical, peace-loving Taurus and emotional, transformative, crisis-oriented Scorpio comes full bloom now. It's a passionate and creative Full Moon, ripe with possibilities and learning experiences. Intimate relationship matters, such as personal comfort levels, sexuality, and values, figure prominently now. Our feelings about a lingering problem or issue can become very clear now.
While there can be a tug of war between closeness and independence, we might discover ways to interact while honoring both needs. We may need to deal with distractions and feelings of discontent that can lead us along unexpected tangents. Disruptions now may lead to a desire to explore motivations and understand meanings.
With today's minor square between the Sun and Venus, we might watch for a tendency to go overboard seeking others' appreciation. What we want to do and think we should do can be at odds now, and we may not be very productive with this kind of discontent. Ideally, we look for creative solutions for dissatisfaction. The Moon continues its transit of Taurus until 9:33 AM EST, when it enters Gemini. The Gemini Moon is curious, interested, and adaptable.
The void Moon occurs from 3:58 AM EST, with the Moon's last aspect before changing signs (an opposition to the Sun), until the Moon enters Gemini at 9:33 AM EST.
Even though I did not have Covid luckily, I`ve had the first cold in almost 2 years it seems, and it was a particularly annoying one, luckily not as bad as Covid. And there was a lot stuff happening around me, that made for a challenging time.
