November’s Full Moon falls in the sign of Taurus on 4th November 2017 at 03:22pm (AEST).
What is Being Illuminated?
As the moon waxes to full this week practical and tangible matters are likely to feature.
As with all Full Moons expect a light to be shone around behavioural patterns or emotions that are asking for your attention and with the Moon in trine aspect to Pluto there could be insightful revelations now around such patterns.
This aspect also tends to intensify the emotions and the energy around this full moon could well unearth something long standing or which feels primal.
Do you Feel Safe and Secure?
When Taurus features, issues related to your physical security may arise.
How safe do you feel in daily life?
Do you feel ‘held’ by those around you?
Safe to express your emotions?
Safe to ask for a hug?
Loved and Protected?
Do you feel financially secure and well provided for?
Is your income able to meet the needs of yourself and your family?
What is Your Belief System Around Money?
With Venus opposing Uranus and with Jupiter situated close to the Full Moon, you may be called upon to confront your belief system around money.
There could be an enlightening realisation about your relationship with money and how that is playing out within your life.
Themes around money and power could arise; such as believing that money is ‘bad’ or that to desire money is wrong.
Perhaps you feel that it’s only for those who wish for power over others or perhaps having money raises feelings of guilt within you.
You can choose to be friends with money or not.
I’ve been on both sides of the equation.
I prefer being friends 🙂
Taurus energy relates to physical abundance and when we feel physically abundant, we tend to feel a greater sense of safety and vitality.
Having enough money brings you the freedom to make choices about how you care for your body.
What food do you choose to nourish your body with?
Organic, Cruelty Free, Whole foods…
… or do you choose less for yourself because you feel your financial situation can only afford you that?
Do you indulge in regular massages or other healing modalities that serve to support your body and to make your journey through this lifetime easier…
Or do you simply ensure to wash behind your neck once in a blue moon?
You have one body during this lifetime, so why not care for it in the most optimal way that you possibly can right now and ensure that this life is a healthy and vital one?
Indulging yourself in this way increases your sense of well-being.
Taurus energy reminds us to enjoy the pleasure of the senses, so why not honour your body with a candlelit bath, soft music and a glass of something you enjoy this evening?
Committing to nourish your body with nature-given foods, morning walks or ocean swims (if you’re lucky to live close to the ocean) is also something that is easily implemented and very effective.
Strengthen Your Connection to Mother Earth, Get Grounded
Taurus is the sign in Astrology most connected with the Earth and the body.
Taking time out in nature can strengthen your connection to Mother Earth, as can grounding techniques; such as visualising sending roots from the base of your spine down and out into the Earth below you.
If you’re feeling insecure then including this visualisation along with your morning meditation practice can increase your sense of belonging and help you to feel balanced and centred throughout the day.
Power and Your Ability as Creator of Your Life
Issues around personal power and your ability to manifest the life that you desire could arise now.
Do you actively participate in building the structures that you desire (as an active co-creator upon the Earth) or do you tend to blow in the wind; feeling like a victim of circumstance?
There is a great quote: “Dreams don’t work unless you do”.
If what you see isn’t quite living up to the dream around this Full Moon then maybe you could contemplate some actions to take at the next New Moon to bring what you want a little closer.
With a Grand Fire Trine between Uranus, Saturn and the North Node in this Full Moon chart, there’s certainly plenty of inspiration and motivation to be tapped into to help you instigate those changes.
On the other hand, if you find yourself feeling content and secure around this Full Moon, you may want to take the time to celebrate what you’ve managed to achieve to date.
In either case, I prescribe expressing plenty of gratitude, because when we look at what we do have and give heartfelt thanks for that, magic tends to happen.
How Can You Help Others to Rise?
With Neptune in trine to the Sun/Jupiter conjunction expect an increase in sensitivity and potentially philanthropic tendencies.
What can you contribute to today that will help lift others?
With Taurus’ concern with the Earth and Neptune’s connection to the Ocean, you might want to consider reducing your plastic consumption and investing in a Cora Ball in order to protect our Ocean environment and water animals.
Or perhaps you’d like to “give a cluck” about the chickens that lay your eggs and choose to use this fabulous App – CluckAR 🙂
Signs From the Body
Taurus rules the throat and neck, so be aware of any discomfort around this area as we move towards this Full Moon.
Pain or illness in those body parts related to your throat chakra may be related to blocked self-expression; perhaps the inability to speak your truth.
Wearing blue and eating blue foods; such as Eggplant or Blueberries can help to bring balance.
Which area of your life is likely to be affected by this Full Moon?
Where does this Full Moon fall within your natal chart?
If you’re unsure of how to find this and would like help with understanding your natal chart, you can sign up for my newsletter and receive my E-Book “Introductory Tips for Astrological Self Awareness” for free.
Look for 11 degrees and 58 seconds of Taurus (The Moon), and 11 degrees and 58 seconds of Scorpio (The Sun).
Which house axis (areas of life) is being highlighted in your chart?
Are there any planets, which fall at (or very close to) 11 degrees within your natal chart?
Those situated between 9 and 13 degrees of the fixed signs (Taurus, Leo, Scorpio, Aquarius) and also Aries, Gemini, Libra and Sagittarius are likely to add more to the picture.
I also offer a 12-month subscription to my Lunar Illuminations.
