11/4/17 Full Moon in Taurus
Now that the Sun has moved into the middle of intense, underworldly Scorpio, November’s Full Moon falls in the sign of earthy, sensual Taurus, and makes a grand cross with the Moon’s nodes, making this Full moon karmically significant. The axis of Taurus and Scorpio has to do with resources, sexuality, and the balance of personal needs with the needs of the other. The Moon’s North and South Nodes in transit (in Leo and Aquarius, respectively) have to do with how we are being asked to collectively evolve.
Since May, we have been guided to move towards the Leo North Node, (listening to the heart, having the courage to be who we are, to stand up and expres ourselves boldly) and away from negative Aquarius tendencies (aloofness, hiding behind technology and social media, getting lost in the crowd, and being overly cerebral and idealistic about the experience of our lives). This Leo North Node has made a grand trine with Saturn and Black Moon Lilith in Sagittarius and Uranus in Aries for several months now, and this will continue until December. It’s been a time of coming into our truths and being fully expressed, not being afraid to ruffle some feathers in the process.
However, when astral bodies make a square to the Nodes, they can be seen as karmic skipped steps or missing pieces to the evolutionary puzzle, becoming inextricably bound up in our evolution and needing a great deal of our attention! This Full moon has the Sun in Scorpio and Moon in Taurus squaring the Nodes, and asks us to deepen our awareness into the balance between our need to go deep, merging with an other, and our own self worth, personal needs, and our sensual nature. In order to bring our North Node Leo fire and create what we want and who we want to be, we need resources, self value, and we need other people on our side.
The Sun at this time is conjunct Jupiter and trining Neptune, making this full moon time a period of intense growth and expansion through delving into intimacy, our unconscious minds, our shadows, and deepening our spiritual practice. Meanwhile, Taurus moon says “I need”, and brings us back to a centeredness in our own personal values and feelings amidst the Scorpio intensity. At this time, we must remain sensually present to, and aware of our boundaries. What are your likes and dislikes? If you are about to merge with an other, be it business or pleasure, what do you need in order for this merger to work for you? We must remain in tact and sovereign even as we seek to grow and expand through our merging with others. Pluto in Capricorn making an effortless trine to the Taurus Full Moon asks us to be aware of our need for financial security and structure in our dealings with others so that we feel safe and valued.
Venus (ruler of Taurus) and Mars (co-ruler of Scorpio) are both in Libra at this time. It’s a beautiful time for making relationships of any kind happen. Venus is also directly opposite Uranus, which makes for sudden, unpredictable shifts in your relationship sector and/or financial reality.
Take some time to nourish your body and feed your soul this Full Moon, and set a firm foundation within your being for a bountiful and pleasurable new reality to emerge.
The full Moon in Taurus also makes a trine to Pluto, god of the underworld, in Capricorn. This is time to get the money and resources and material security together.
