Taurus Full Moon 11/2014

So the Taurus full moon is taking place on 11/6 around 5:30pm ET. It opposes the sun in Scorpio (of course) and opposes Venus in Scorpio as well.

Full moons are a great time to look at our progress and make adjustments. This full moon happens in the axis of personal wealth and community wealth. It speaks to what we attain for ourselves and what we share with others. What we keep for ourselves and what we eliminate for the good of others.

This full moon would be good for us to think about these themes, especially when we see that Venus is in the sign of intimacy and transform. What possessions are we emotionally attached to that may be forcing us into a pattern of stagnation? Our higher consciousness and inherent ability to attract the things and people that we need want to streamline and transform, to make room for deeper and unseen connections while the effect of the Taurus full moon assists us in languishing in what we have accumulated.

Balancing the need to hold on and let go is at the heart of this configuration but the added energy of Venus in Scorpio asks us all to share what we have to make room for more. Yes, Scorpio energy can be possessive but at its heart it yearns to connect and meld with a select few.

I have inside knowledge cause I’m a Scorpio sun lol

Full Moon/Lunar Eclipse 10/2014

There is a blood moon ahead *cue spooky music*

A full moon and lunar eclipse will take place at 6:49am Eastern Time. The sun will be at 15° Libra and the moon will be at its fullest opposite it. Full moons signal a push for completion and fulfillment of goals that we started at the beginning of the lunar cycle. Toss in a lunar eclipse and the need to reach completion and release is heightened.

The emotional need to assert our individual self is ripe. Aries houses both the moon and Uranus so moments can happen that beg us to burst forth in emotionally erratic and eccentric ways. Opposite the sun in Libra, we could walk a tightrope between me and we that seems a bit shakier than usual.

The moon’s nodes are involved in this full moon and eclipse. The Nodes are mathematical points where the orbit of the moon intersect the ecliptic. In simple terms, it is where the moon crosses the sun’s path. This moon will sit tightly with the south node, the instinctual things that come natural. The sun sits tightly with the north node, the new things we yearn to cultivate. Use this info and your knowledge of the Aries/Libra axis as you will. (I would suggest that while you strive to “be yourself”, you push to do so in relationships that fulfill you and stretch you to define more than just your differences)

All in all, this full moon and eclipse could bring a lot of relationship issues to the forefront. Even the relationship we have with ourselves. Howl if you need to but maybe you should cry out with (and to) a good friend.

Pisces Full Moon- September 2014

Atpisces1 9:38pm ET this evening, we will have our last super moon of the year. It is a full moon in Pisces opposite the sun in Virgo at 16°. This involves what many call the axis of service; Virgo deals largely with practical service in the mundane world and Pisces concerns itself largely with imaginative service in the spiritual realm. The opposition of these two energies should be our main focus with this full moon.

 

Our focus on the things we do everyday to survive in the modern world (sun in Virgo) should not completely supersede the emotional need to imagine and compassionately connect with a higher power (moon in Pisces). The balance of both is necessary and the full moon is a reminder to look back over where we came from to see where we can balance them a bit more. This can be a bit of a heartbreaking task. Noticing where we fell short is hard; even more so when we are moving from a Virgo centered perspective.

 

Chiron makes a tight conjunction with the moon tonight so old wounds may feel fresh. The pressure to martyr ourselves, to make up for past real or imagined transgressions, may bubble up as well. Allow yourself to feel it, find a comforting friend to listen (it may be easier since mercury moved into Libra- listening and considering others is a mainstay of this combo), and let it go.

“You may say that I’m a dreamer/ but I’m not the only one” Pisces energy understands connection to humanity through the unseen and unknown.

Pisces is excellent at reminding us that we find God/Goddess in the people we meet and connect with everyday. Moon in Pisces nudges us to imagine compassionate ways to interact with humanity. Building bridges on rocky shores is a kind of superpower that the fishes have. 

 

Refine your everyday living with all of the preciseness of Virgo. Assisting others in practical ways is not always Pisces’ first mind for compassionate service but it can do a world of good as well. Giving to others in such a way allows for a free flowing of love that nurtures body, mind, and spirit.
