Full Moon in Taurus

Taurus Full Moon November 2

The Taurus Full Moon occurs when the Moon in Taurus opposes the Sun in Scorpio, creating a 180 degree angle and a tension between the conscious mind (Sun) and the emotional instinctive reactions (Moon), and the challenging square of both luminaries to Mars will definitely spice up the Full Moon!

Mars is in Leo now, where the role of personal development is emphasized, and the Full Moon occurs in the sign of Taurus. Taurus is focused on stability and physical security, as well as the peace and serenity that comes from a life that is full of contentment and material gifts. This Full Moon could highlight any areas of our life where our personal ego gets in the way of our ability to achieve comfort in our lives, but will also help to energize us to fulfill the dreams of the Full Moon.

Any lunation, or lunar event, encompasses all of the planetary combinations that occur at the time of the event. Taurus’s ruler Venus, the planet of love and beauty as well as harmony and peace forms a harmonious trine to Neptune on the day of the Full Moon. This harmonious dance between the planet of spirituality (Neptune) and the goddess of love helps to wrap our experience in a veil of magic and conscious awareness which helps us to utilize the energy of Mars in a more productive way.

Of course the approaching square from Saturn to Pluto is also a part of the lunation, adding a touch of darkness […]

Full-Frosty-MoonThe Taurus Full Moon occurs around midnight tonight (1:17 am Eastern), and it will be a powerful one!!   There is a very tight Grand Trine in earth signs right now, with the Moon in Taurus, Jupiter in Capricorn and Saturn in Virgo.

Grand Trines are harmonious aspects that facilitate personal satisfaction and an easy and relaxed experience. By themselves they can lead to self-indulgence and complacency, but in this case the Grand Trine includes a hard aspect as well (the opposition from the Sun to the Moon that produces the Full Moon and turns the Grand Trine into a Kite formation). The Kite is a more dynamic aspect because it contains an opposition aspect (Sun/Moon in this case) as well as the Grand Trine which helps to energize the planets towards positive change.

The Sun and Moon are also involved in a challenging aspect (T-square) to Chiron and Neptune, all in fixed signs.  This kind of aspect creates a crisis that encourages action to relieve the crisis. In this case the crisis will involve the eruption into consciousness (Full Moon) of unhealed wounds (Chiron) that may have been driven into the subconscious (Neptune). The Chiron/Neptune combination also signifies an increase of personal wisdom that can be accessed directly by the power of the Full Moon. The fixed signs resist change which will hold back the evolutionary process somewhat unless we remain aware to relax into the process and allow the magic to unfold.

In the middle of all of this, Jupiter and Uranus, which have been moving slowly towards a sextile (harmonious aspect) which brings exciting new changes and expansive opportunities have reached the apex of that relationship just as the Moon is full.  The energy […]
