How The November 8 Full Moon Lunar Eclipse Will Affect You If You're A Capricorn

For those who follow astrology, it is generally understood that the time of the full moon is a time of energies coming to full fruition (via Elite Daily). The center of both ancient folklore and modern urban legends about supernatural occurrences, unexplained events, and people behaving strangely, the full moon is a time of heightened energies, when people are said to be able to tap into higher intuition, make major strides forward, and generally reap the harvest of what they planted and set intentions for back when the moon was in its new moon phase. 

Eclipses, meanwhile, are understood to be times of great change and shifts (via Yoga Journal). Lunar eclipses especially are considered immense opportunities to shake up your life for the better. Information tends to hit you out of nowhere during a lunar eclipse, and you might be surprised what you suddenly realize, learn, or understand about yourself, others, or your path in general. While this might feel jarring, these sudden revelations are meant to help you take a giant leap forward, so trust in your ability to adapt and listen to your heart and intuition regarding what needs shifting in your life.

Now, combine a full moon and a lunar eclipse, and you've got yourself one heck of an event. Enter November 8th's full blood moon and lunar eclipse!     

What this lunation will mean

This coming Tuesday, November 8th, which is already likely to be a day of heightened energies in the United States due to midterm elections occurring that day, is about to be quite the ride. At 6:02 a.m. ET, the full blood moon will be eclipsed by the Earth (via In Style). This event will happen in the sign of Taurus, an earth sign that also happens to be ruled by Venus. As such, matters of the heart and home will be the major focus of this lunation, and revelations are likely to surround relationships, romance, and worldly needs like security and physical possessions. 

Further, because the moon will interact most closely with the planet Uranus at this time, you can be assured that expecting the unexpected is a must. Uranus is the planet that governs surprises, innovation, and awakenings, so remember what we said about information coming out of nowhere during an eclipse? That applies even more this time around. 

If you're a grounded Capricorn, here's what you need to know about how this will all affect you personally.

How this event will affect Capricorn

Hardworking, driven Capricorn, you rarely ever stop moving. Intent always on showing up as your best self on all stages, you are passionate about your goals, interests, and causes. While you are undoubtedly ambitious, those ambitions almost always involve improving not just your own life, but the lives of others and the world around you in general. Interestingly, this lunation is going to encourage you to, for once, focus all of that energy and drive inward (via Woman and Home). 

What do you want, Capricorn? What you bring you joy right now? Not joy at seeing someone else succeed, not joy at having completed a major work project, but true simple joy that comes about from allowing yourself to truly follow your own heart? This is a time to move toward self care. Not only on November 8, but this entire week, you need to ask yourself what would make you simply feel good in any given moment, and then, you actually need to do it. 

You have been going, going, going for a long time now, Cap. It's time to slow down and take stock of the most important source of your power: yourself. Honor the incredible creature you are. You deserve it.
