Full Moon in Taurus ~ November 21, 2010

On November 21st at 9:27 a.m. PST / 12:27 p.m. EST, the moon waxes full in the sign of Taurus. The Moon is said to be exalted (best placement) in comfort-seeking Taurus. Taurean energy gives the Moon's fluctuating moods and sensitivities some semblance of stability and grounding.

Full moons signify the completion, culmination of what may have been initiated during the previous new moon in Scorpio which reminded us that it's never too late to make a change. This Full Moon in Taurus squares Neptune (hope) and Chiron (release), daring us to take a look at what we've got, then go ahead and let go of what we no longer need or what keeps us from making the necessary changes, despite how difficult it might be to give up what's been so familiar...comfortable.

Much like the Aries-Full Moon last month, this Taurus-Full Moon also occurs at 29 degrees. Those born within 3 days of April 19 or November 21 or with natal planets and/or house angles on or around 29 degrees of fixed signs may feel the effects of this full moon stronger than others.

For me, this Taurus-Full Moon, along with Neptune & Chiron, square my natal Neptune; and falls in my natal 9th house of personal growth (as a Virgo-rising) and solar 11th house of friendships (as a Cancer-Sun). I've been under the umbrella of Neptune square natal Neptune all year and this full moon is just kicking everything up a notch. Between being under the umbrella of Pluto (purging) opposing my Sun (conscious will) and Uranus (awakening) also currently trine my Neptune, anything goes :) Since this is also a "9" year for me in numerology which is generally about letting go, this Taurus-Full Moon is not-so-subtle "nudge, nudge" for me to get it together ... whatever else I need to get let go of/come to terms with/release, get it done already!
