You’re currently in the throes of eclipse season, which is one reason there’s been no shortage of drama. If you’re feeling the cosmic whiplash already, then you might be one of the zodiac signs affected by the full moon lunar eclipse in Taurus of October 2023 the most. After all, it means you’re sitting right in the eye of the storm!
Alright, real talk—there’s no reason to be afraid of an eclipse, so don’t allow the experience to fill you with dread. In astrology, eclipses open a karmic doorway for a period of 28-days, and during this time, anything—and I mean anything—can happen. After all, an eclipse can only occur when a full moon or a new moon takes place in either of the zodiac signs situated on the North Node and the South Node. While the North Node signifies your future and your ultimate destiny, the South Node represents the energetic baggage of your past. And if your zodiac sign happens to be affected by an eclipse, it could evoke a sharp and unexpected turning point in your life. If you’re already feeling the weight of change, don’t worry—the universe knows what it’s doing.
