Taurus Full Moon
Thursday, November 10, 2011, 12:05 p.m. PT
This month’s Full Moon occurs at Eighteen degrees of Taurus and is a prelude to the much anticipated 11.11.11 date. Full Moons illuminate the subconscious realms of the human psyche and highlight the areas symbolized by the constellations and planetary aspects. The strength of this month’s Full Moon is sure to be powerful as it falls in the sign of the bull the day before 11.11.11.
Astrologically, Taurus represents the material and spiritual realms. From a material perspective it is the sign that correlates security with survival – what brings us security, or allows us to feel secure, will promote our survival. When the Moon is in Taurus we can find ourselves wanting to enjoy and relax within the sensual and material realms that we have created. Spiritually, Taurus represents the divine and sacred mysteries. Taurus is ruled by the inner side of Venus marking this an auspicious time to turn inward and focus on one’s connection with self and the divine spark within.
Venus is synonymous with LOVE and when associated with Taurus she is asking us to cultivate a loving relationship with our inner self. Neptune, the planetary body associated with healing, is making a challenging aspect to this Full Moon. This aspect may unveil previously buried emotional dynamics that need our attention and likely our commitment to healing.
And lastly, have you observed the bright planetary body next to the Moon the past couple of nights? Along with the Moon, Jupiter is also traveling through the sign of Taurus. Because the Astrological planet Jupiter is most associated with expansion, abundance and wisdom, this Full Moon will be an auspicious time to evaluate ones use of the Earth’s natural resources—Taurus. Taurus is the zodiac sign associated with responsibility of personal income, and ones overall approach to money. With this in mind it is interesting to note that “Occupy Wall Street” gained its momentum during Jupiter’s journey through Taurus. Let us each be part of this revolution by using our personal resources consciously.
We have an economy that tells us it is cheaper to destroy earth in real time rather than renew, restore, and sustain it. You can print money to bail out a bank but you can’t print life to bail out a planet – Paul Hawken
