Comparing the Nov. 19, 2021 Taurus Lunar Eclipse with the Nov. 19, 2002 Taurus Lunar Eclipse
Today’s eclipse Sun and Moon (lunar eclipse at 27 Taurus 14’) made a nearly exact t-square aspect to the USA’s natal Moon. Eclipses are moments when large amounts of cosmic energy come into the Earth plane; t-square patterns operate like a prism or a funnel, channeling the energy of a planetary opposition — in this case the eclipse Sun and Moon at 27 Scorpio and 27 Taurus — into that planet.
Basically, this dynamic directs a blast of energy into the USA’s Moon. (The Moon symbolizes the people in a national chart, as well as what’s going on in the homeland.) It tells us that the status quo isn’t working, so here’s a cosmic wake-up call to jolt us and get us unstuck. With precise aspects like this one, experience tells us that the condition of the people or the homeland needs to, and is going to, undergo a significant shift.
Normally I would see this signature as problematic, especially given the deep shit we’re in as a society. But every time I’ve tuned into the eclipse, I’ve gotten the hit that things could be different this time.
Eclipses repeat at the same degree every 19 years, so I decided to compare this eclipse with the previous eclipse at 27 Taurus to see if anything jumped out at me.

November 2002 was a pretty momentous month for the condition of the American people. A week after the Taurus lunar eclipse, on Nov. 25, 2002, George W. Bush signed the Homeland Security Act into law. Following on the heels of the Patriot Act in October 2001, the creation of the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) institutionalized the war on domestic terrorism. Continue reading
