When was the last eclipse in Taurus Scorpio?
The Taurus-Scorpio eclipse cycle last occurred between November 2012 and October 2014. So, what life lessons did you start learning nearly a decade ago? Is your life heading in the right direction? Is this cycle about finally putting your resolve and spiritual desire to work producing your dreams? Scorpio, which is ruled by the warrior planet Mars and Pluto, the ruler of the underworld, understands how to transform and lose old skin in order to achieve its goals.
When is the 2022 lunar eclipse?
What causes the redness? The Earth’s atmosphere “absorbs and scatters shorter wavelengths in the blue and green sections of the spectrum, resulting in preferentially reddish light reaching the moon,” according to the website. At 8:29 p.m., the heavenly exhibition of utter darkness begins and lasts until 9:53 p.m.
- You also don’t need to wear any protective eyewear. This eclipse is visible to the naked eye.
The Griffith Observatory in Griffith Park will broadcast all stages of the eclipse from 7:35 to 11:50 p.m. on May 15 if you want to watch with the pros (weather permitting). Perhaps you’d prefer to paddle under the stars from Redondo Beach’s Portofino Hotel and Marina. The Dockside of the Moon, a one-time event, will be guided by REI guides. The cost is $175 per participant, with a percentage of the revenues going to the San Pedro Marine Mammal Care Center. The paddle will take place on May 15 at 8 p.m. and will last 90 minutes. Call (310) 798-5869 to register.
When is the next new moon in April 2022?
In 2022, the Black Moon will occur on Saturday, April 30th. As a new Moon, illumination will be only 0.2 percent, and it will be 395,380 kilometers from Earth.
During the day, the Black Moon will rise at 5:37 a.m. and set at 8:07 p.m. Daylight Saving Time (DST).
Saturday’s Black Moon is noteworthy because it coincides with the season’s first solar eclipse.
What is a solar eclipse of the new moon?
When the moon passes between the sun and the Earth at new moon, a solar eclipse occurs. When the Earth, sun, and moon align in space, with Earth between the sun and moon, a lunar eclipse occurs. During a lunar eclipse, Earth’s shadow falls over the full moon, darkening its face and occasionally turning it a coppery crimson in the middle of the eclipse. Every year, we usually experience four to seven eclipses, some partial, some total, some lunar, and some solar. Why aren’t eclipses visible at every new and full moon?
The orbit of the moon around the Earth takes about a month. We would have at least two eclipses per month if the moon orbited in the same plane as the ecliptic, Earth’s orbital plane. Every full moon would result in a lunar eclipse. There would also be a solar eclipse during the new moon two weeks later, for a total of at least 24 eclipses every year.
Moon’s orbit is inclined
However, this does not occur since the moon’s orbit around Earth is 5 degrees inclined to Earth’s orbit around the sun. The moon contacts the ecliptic Earth’s orbital plane – twice a month at nodes. An ascending node occurs as the moon moves from south to north in its orbit. A descending node occurs when the moon moves from north to south.
If the full moon or new moon passes close enough to one of these nodes, an eclipse is not only possible, but almost certain.
An eclipse does not come alone
Solar and lunar eclipses always occur in pairs, with one eclipse occurring every two weeks (approximately two weeks). On April 30, 2022, for instance, an ascending node partial solar eclipse will be followed by a descending node total lunar eclipse on May 15-16, 2022.
A descending node partial solar eclipse will occur on October 25, 2022, six lunar months (six new moons) after the ascending node annular solar eclipse on April 30, 2022.
There will be an ascending node total lunar eclipse on November 8, 2022, six lunar months (six full moons) following this descending node total lunar eclipse on May 15-16, 2022.
Two eclipses, one solar and one lunar, are most typically seen in a single eclipse season, which lasts about 34 to 35 days. However, if the first eclipse occurs early enough in the eclipse season, there may be three eclipses in one eclipse season (two solar and one lunar, or two lunar and one solar). The last time this happened was in July-August 2020 (lunar/solar/lunar), and the next time it will be in June-July 2029 (solar/lunar/solar).
The middle of the eclipse season in 2022 happens between May 15 and November 4. The lunar nodes are in perfect alignment with the Earth and sun in the middle of an eclipse season, which lasts roughly 173 days.
When the new moon and full moon are closely aligned with the lunar nodes, a pair of eclipses occurs, as explained in the video below.
This movie contains some unfamiliar terms, such as ecliptic and node. The ecliptic is the plane on which the Earth orbits the sun. The orbit of the moon is inclined to the ecliptic plane. The nodes are the two spots on the ecliptic where the moon’s orbit intersects with the ecliptic.
Moon phases shift along the zodiac every month
The moon’s phases reoccur around 30 degrees eastward (counterclockwise) along the zodiac each month, relative to the moon’s nodes. As a result, the next pair of eclipses will not occur for over six months (6 x 30 degrees = 180 degrees), on October 25 and November 8, 2022.
In around 29.5 days, the next new moon and full moon occur nearly 30 degrees eastward as indicated by the zodiac constellations. The moon, on the other hand, returns to its node two days early, in 27.2 days. A waning crescent moon (not a new moon) crosses the moon’s ascending node on May 29, 2022, and a waxing gibbous moon (not a full moon) crosses the moon’s descending node on June 12, 2022, following the eclipses of April 30, 2022, and May 15-16, 2022.
Despite the fact that the moon’s orbit is inclined to that of Earth, and an eclipse does not occur with every new and full moon, there are more eclipses than you may expect. All of these are breathtaking. They serve as a reminder that we live on a planet as well as an opportunity to fall in line with other beautiful worlds in space!
Bottom line: A complete solar eclipse and a total lunar eclipse would occur every month if the Earth and moon orbited the sun in the same plane. We don’t, however, because the moon’s orbit is 5 degrees inclined to Earth’s. There will be four eclipses in 2022, two solar and two lunar.
Why is Scorpio so fond of Taurus?
Taurus is drawn to Scorpio’s magnetic atmosphere, which he perceives as a jewel worth owning. Taurus is one of the few zodiac signs that can match Scorpio’s steady gaze. The chemistry is created by the showdown and the wonderful suspense of what could happen. Taurus in love is tactile, faithful, and seeks security. Scorpio is engulfing, jealous, and passionately protective in love. They telepathically agree on what that reserve and seriousness are all about. They acquire access to each other’s secret world through sensuous pleasure and relaxing, but intense times.
When did the North Node pass over Taurus?
On January 18, 2022, the transiting North Node reached Taurus. This sign will remain in place until July 2023. North and South Nodes are always 180 degrees apart and in opposite signs. So, for the next year and a half, the transiting South Node will be in Scorpio.
The transiting nodes show where we’re concentrating our efforts (North Node) and what we’re evaluating and correcting (South Node). Our attention is frequently drawn to the subjects represented by the transiting North Node, while the transiting South Node reveals what’s on hold. When the transiting North Node was in Cancer, the sign of home and family, this was an excellent illustration. We were on lockdown at the time, and stay-at-home orders meant that people were cultivating plants and preparing bread.
What does Taurus’ North Node mean?
When the North Node enters Taurus, our collective awareness will turn toward what grounds us, relaxes us, gives us security, and just makes sense. We can find ourselves adjusting and attaching to our new normal, finding moments of tranquility in an otherwise chaotic world.
Moon is red for a reason.
The red light of a “blood moon” is one of its meanings. A total lunar eclipse happens during this red moon. The Earth passes between the Moon and the Sun during a total lunar eclipse. The Moon is shielded from the sun by this.
When this occurs, the only light reaching the Moon’s surface comes from the Earth’s atmosphere’s boundaries. The majority of the blue light is scattered by the air molecules in Earth’s atmosphere. The residual light casts a crimson glow on the Moon’s surface, making it appear red in the night sky.
The term “blood moon” is also applied to a Moon that appears reddish in the sky due to dust, smoke, or haze. It might also be one of the fall full moons, when the leaves are turning red.
