While the autumn leg of the astrological events in 2022 started with a partial solar eclipse on October 25, a full lunar eclipse took place on November 8. This has its own effects on zodiac signs but serves as a good opportunity to take stock of certain things and be mindful, and some precautions can easily help you sail through this Blood Moon period.
All about the lunar eclipse and Blood Moon in November 2022, plus its impact on zodiac signs
What to expect from this lunar eclipse?
This is the last eclipse until 2023 and began at 05:17 am EST (5:17 pm MYT) and ended at 6:42 am EST (6:42 pm MY). A partial eclipse was then visible until 8:05 am EST (8.05pm MYT). The moon was be under the Earth’s shadow for a full 85 minutes and took on a reddish tinge, hence the moniker Blood Moon.
This time, the brightest lunar eclipse is expected to be a period of chaos and upheavals. It is also a time to assess material goods and connect with values to see what resonates best with your mindset. In terms of astrology, the four governing planets in focus are Mercury, Venus, Saturn and Uranus, making it a period of chaos and twisted ends which can compel you to make hasty decisions and feel insecure, especially when it comes to relationships.
The sun and Mercury came together on the November 8 morning, while Uranus, which opposes the first planet, connects in the evening. Such an event manifests its energy and helps the zodiacs get a clearer perspective. While on one hand, Uranus makes you break out from the norms and strive for independence as against a controlling Saturn, on the other hand, Mercury and Venus might make you do things that will make you happy and positive.
