Scorpio, nothing will be the same after the Taurus Lunar Eclipse that takes place this Tuesday, November 8th at 6:02am EST. You’ve officially morphed into a new person, the type of person who may barely recognize who you were at the start of our season two weeks ago, right before the Solar Eclipse in our sign took place. Whew. The most important thing you can do this week is have grace and compassion for yourself and your transformation. As Scorpios, we have so much empathy for others that at times we wonder how our transformation will affect them, rather than taking time to sit with ourselves and see how it’s affecting us, first and foremost. It’s your transformation after all, so worry less about hurting other people’s feelings due to how much “you’ve changed”, and focus more on the reason(s) you’re ready to change in the first place.

Deep down, something’s been nagging at you. It may be most evident in your relationship sector, because Taurus is our opposite sign of the zodiac and represents our partnerships, but it may also be a general nagging feeling that you tried to ignore or rationalize, but that’s only gotten increasingly bigger, and uncomfortable. This week’s lunar eclipse is letting you know that you have no choice but to face that nagging feeling once and for all. Invite it to come and have tea, (or coffee, tree, shrooms, ginger juice, whatever you’d like) with you, rather than running away from it. It’s been nagging at you for a reason — let your thoughts and intuitive wisdom tell you that reason. Chances are, it’s a reason you’ve been trying to avoid, because it would mean that you’d have to change every aspect of your life in order to let yourself grow beyond your current state of being, and that can be scary. But you’re a Scorpio, and this is Scorpio Season. You can face what scares you. You can face it bravely and overcome the fears, breath by breath. Mars’ retrograde in Gemini is helping you re-evaluate your current trajectory, because the Universe wants you to know that there’s something better that awaits on the other side of eclipse season. It’s so close that you can almost taste it…

But you’re not there yet, Scorpio. So slooow down. And be present. This week is about release, closure, endings, and healing. It’s not about fresh new starts. That’ll happen two weeks from now, during the Sagittarius New Moon on November 23, one day after our season ends. Instead, use this week to mourn who you used to be, and celebrate who you’re growing into. If your relationships and friendships seem to be ending around this time, let them end. This is a Total Lunar Eclipse — it doesn’t play any games! It’s also making a conjunction to Uranus in Taurus, which activates our partnership sector, and it’s opposing Mercury and Venus, which are both in our signs. There may be a conflict between what your heart wants and what your head says. Quiet your mind, and tap into the wisdom of your body. This can best be done in nature. The more time you spend in nature this week, the better. The more you tune out from outside distractions, unhealthy situationships, toxic friendships, and your own limiting beliefs, the better. Will this be easier said than done? Possibly. Are you up for the challenge? Most definitely.

Scorpio, I’m telling you this because I feel this eclipse energy tremendously right now. You may have read today’s SMscope, where I shared that this week’s Taurus Lunar eclipse signals endings in our relationships, as well as a potential for a new beginning. I’m feeling this eclipse immensely, and I have to be transparent with you. I’ve been sharing free readings with this community for nearly 12 years now, and I desire greater reciprocity. At times I feel like I’ve poured more into SM than a majority of its users have poured into me. Some of you have supported my work by purchasing my forecasts and my book, and I’m eternally grateful for you. However,  I also have the impression that many of you benefit from my spiritual wisdom but don’t pour it back into me tangibly.  This eclipse has led me to a crossroads of sorts. I have a book, Signs & Skymates, coming out Dec 6, and I’d love for more of you to pre-order my labor of love! Receiving your support beyond likes and comments will motivate me to keep writing daily scopes, because it’ll feel like an equal exchange of energy. But I’m also okay with starting over, no longer offering free readings, and letting go. Big eclipse energy. Perhaps you feel similarly in some aspects of your life. Use this eclipse to speak your truth, even if it hurts. Let your needs be known. Release yourself from resentment. BE FREE. For those who’d like to support my work by pre-ordering my book, you can do so here. Thank you, and happy lunar eclipse! 

PS: To put my words into action, I also want to pour into you as you support my work, because I know it’s an investment. If you pre-order the Signs & Skymates book, deck, and journal before December 5, you’ll receive a complimentary Birth Chart Reading (created by me), and an Astro Compatibility Course. Learn more & submit your pre-order receipts here. Thank you for the support!
