This Taurus full moon occurs at the end of the eclipse season to bring about closure on the past month which has seen a number of very intense astrological configurations and a powerful taste of what’s to come in 2014.
Occurring on November 17 in the US and November 18 in Australia, this Taurus full Moon is somewhat of a mixed blessing. With Venus conjuncting Pluto and Mercury conjuncting the Moon's north node, this can be quite a transformational time and one that can see people having all kinds of breakthroughs in relationships, realisations about love, being clear with others about their boundaries and finding where one truly belongs.
Today is the Full Moon and Lunar Eclipse. It’s big and it’s powerful and it is calling us to task. The power of the Full Moon actually accentuates the power of the Eclipse. As you know, we have been increasing in energetic intensity for most of this year.
This Lunar Eclipse in the 26th degree of Aries (11:51 p.m. 18th October GMT) encourages us to consider our gifts and talents, hopes and dreams, with a mind to the reality of manifesting those dreams in this material world. It warns us against losing ourselves in fantasies of who we could be, instead embracing who we are today and the seed potential which exists at our heart.
We are currently on the road to what promises to be a very powerful Full Moon in Aries, along with a Lunar Eclipse. Eclipses are powerful “stillpoints” in time that tend to magnetize, accelerate and also move out people, places and things in our lives that are no longer in service to our highest purposes.
Today’s Full Moon occurs at 11:14 a.m. GMT in the 27th degree of Pisces. The Sabian Symbol for this degree is ‘A Harvest Moon’, (nicely appropriate for those of us in the Northern Hemisphere!) and this Moon shines her light upon the harvest we can now reap.
The full moon on the 19th is a perfect time to focus on balance – within yourself, within your relationships, and with your outer world. Creating more balance will serve you well, providing a stabilizing effect and helping you to connect with expanded levels of intuitively guided reason.
The incoming Full Moon energies are definitely potent and womb-like. I’ve felt them building for the past two weeks; especially in combination with Pluto stationing direct on Friday which also shines a light on the inner work we have been doing not only in the last moon cycle, but the entire summer (winter) as well.
We begin the new week with Saturn now conjunct the North Node, the Sun somewhat cast aside from its cosmic colleagues and Mars being relieved of some of the pressure to which it’s been subject in the past few days.
Spirit is everywhere you are, giving you insights about your life and helping you when you get stuck. How do you trust what you get? Tapping your inner wisdom and trusting what you get is a process over time.
