Full Moon in Taurus ~ November 2, 2009

Bookmark and Share

There is a highly active sky during this Full Moon in Taurus on November 2 at 2:14 p.m. (ET). The Moon is said to be exalted in Taurus. Perhaps the Moon's greatest "weakness" might be that she's too changeable. It isn't that she can't make up her mind or stick to it. Her decisions are based on her feelings/intuition. Her emotions vacillate as often as she moves one degree every few hours within the sign she is transiting and as she changes zodiac signs every few days. She dons the personality and experiences the wealth emotions from twelve different signs in about 30 days. On top of that, she waxes, wanes, eclipses ... and more recently, was bombed by the Earth when she so kindly helps keep the Earth habitable!

Taurus is the bull -- steadfast and reliable, with feet firmly on the ground. Taurus is also comfort-seeking which is a huge plus for the Moon. Simply put, Taurus offers the Moon what she needs -- emotional security -- which is probably all she really wants sometimes ... to be able to feel, yet not get lost in them or be driven to action solely by them.

It's just as well that this Full Moon is in the sign that gives her stability. Both the Sun and the Moon link up with Mercury (thought/communication) while all three are in conflict with Mars (action/aggression). Careful not to respond to any situation with frustration or anger. It's counterproductive, and we may also later regret our actions/decisions.

Elsewhere in the sky and contributing to the energies of the Full Moon are Saturn (the taskmaster) and Pluto (the destroyer) in the backdrop in their fighting stance as their own challenging link to each other grows stronger. Venus (love & money) in Libra (relationships) won't be left out as she forms her own alignments with Neptune (the enlightened one) and Uranus (the mover and the shaker).

The stability of our relationships and finances may be what's at the core of this full moon. The strengthening tension between Saturn and Pluto suggests we have yet to thoroughly examine or fully understand or completely accept our situation/s. More information and/or perhaps less options may be in store for the next two weeks. What we finally to act upon (Mars) should ideally be concluded from much mental deliberation (Mercury) that reflects the wishes of both our conscious will (Sun) and our heart (Moon). There is the danger of impatience with Mars eager and confident in Leo. For Mars, Mercury in Scorpio may be moving too slow in researching and deciding upon a course of action, while the Sun and Moon continue to seek harmony and balance.

With Uranus in play and Neptune soon to be in direct motion, expect the unexpected during this full moon phase. It may be necessary for something to end but keep a look out for a door ajar or window cracked open and waiting for you peer in. Don't hesitate to create your own opportunities. Uranus and Neptune are in mutual reception while they transit each other's signs. They are both linked to Venus during this Full Moon, so there is room for hopefulness. But Saturn and Pluto must insist that there is work to be done. Just make sure that the work being done reflects upon what you truly desire on the inside (Moon) and out (Sun).
