Full Moon in Taurus
For all the Signs of the Zodiac:
The FULL MOON occurs on Saturday, November 4th, 2017, at 1:23 AM EDT, 12:23 PM CST
This week’s Full Moon occurs late Friday night, early Saturday morning, depending on what part of the world you are in. And it’s in the strong but loving sign of Taurus, which can bring up certain things like: Money, Security, Love, Beauty, Love, and Food, yes I said food, as we love to nurture ourselves and others when the Moon is in good, solid, stabilized Taurus, and therefore food becomes a strong need and desire for some under this energy!
The Full Moon is actually an opposition, when the Sun in Scorpio forms a challenging energy with the Moon in Taurus. This one is also what’s called a “Cazimi” Moon, because it is particularly close to earth, so certain themes will come into play more strong than usual. This energy brings up some issues around filling the voids in our life and what we are lacking.
Do you feel satisfied with what you have and do you have enough of what you need, and do you feel secure? Wondering if you have enough money, love, food, or security can come up during this Full Moon, and the answers will become quite obvious over the weekend.
Full Moons are about balancing out the two opposed forces depending on what Zodiac Sign they are transiting, and we must look at these energies to understand what we need to be doing to work with this energy and not against it. There is the more earthy, practical, peace-loving, and security minded Taurus Moon and than emotional, power hungry, soul-searching, dramatic Sun in Scorpio. The Moon in Taurus wants you to find something that fills an emotional need or void (hence why food can become a stronger desire), but it wants you to do it in a more simplistic way, finding what works for you in this life. While the Sun in Scorpio draws our attentions to what is more deeply psychological and complex, it draws us to solve the mysteries around us. This Full Moon illuminates this conflict between what is physical (Taurus) and transforming (Scorpio).
This energy makes us feel more passionate, in love, and highly creative! This Full Moon’s energy helps us think of the possibilities and helps us learn through our experiences. Taurus is ruled by Venus and Scorpio by Pluto but also Mars, Venus-Mars are the Cosmic Lovers of the Zodiac, so our intimate relationships are highlighted under this powerfully strong Full Moon, and things like our personal comfort and what we value and our sexuality is going to be super strong right now!
The Full Moon is the high point of the Moon cycle, and it is a time when the energies we started during the New Moon come into being. It is a highly emotional time but also a time of romance, relationships, and strong desires.
The Full Moon in Taurus can also be about abundance and helps remind us of what we already have. But there is a strong Venus/Uranus oppostion that will be very close to this Full Moon, and since Venus rules Taurus, this aspect can be quite significant. This is an awakening to what we are lacking in our life and our personal need to find a new way of doing something on our own, and for many of you issues around your personal security may come up, and concerning your work or career, and especially around your love life! Since the Sun, Mercury, and Jupiter are all in the sign of sex itself, Scorpio, issues around our sexuality can also show up now. We need to be doing something that helps us to enjoy ourselves and experience pleasure more often on a regular basis.
This Full Moon is also connected with Jupiter and is harmonizing with dreamy Neptune, as they get closer to make a exact beautiful Trine. This is some nice energy folks that emphasizes fertility (not just having babies), imagination, and those ah-ha moments of realizations or epiphanies that are magical! This energy can bring money, sudden windfalls and just random dumb luck!
This brings in a energy of generosity as our compassion and faith are stronger than usual, we are more willing to make personal sacrifices around what it is we believe in, if it’s for the higher good!
