We are having a Full Moon in Taurus on November 14th and in the early hours of the 15th in eastern Australia and New Zealand. In the Western part of the Americas, it will appear the most Full on the night of the 13th.
Like last month, it will be another ‘Super Moon’, which is when it is closest to Earth and appears larger. This one is the largest since 1948. Considering that it is also in Taurus, a sign that the Moon is ‘exalted’ in, this Full Moon is a special one.
The effects of a Full Moon become more noticeable in the 3 days leading up to it, and still present during the 3 days following, but is stronger when it is closer to the exact moment. The exact time of the Full Moon will be 1:52 pm Universal Time (Click here for your time zone)
Full Moon In Taurus Opposite Sun In Scorpio, In An Easy Aspect With Chiron
We have been in Scorpio season since the last week of October, which is a time when things can get more intense, serious, fearful, suspicious, dark, and complex. It is deep, calculated, and very sexual. Now that we are entering the Full Moon period, it is time for the opposite sign Taurus to have its influence as well by either balancing things out or challenging Scorpionic energy.
Taurus is a slow, solid, and practical sign which can be thorough yet simplistic. Ruled by Venus, it seeks comfort, beauty, and to please the senses. It is also associated with value(s), self-worth, possessions, and can be creative and artistic. Taurus is about stability and this is one of the reasons why the Moon (which rules emotions, comfort, and security) is exalted here.
Unlike the depth, complexity, suspicions, and fears of Scorpio, Taurus seeks to feel secure, stable, sensually stimulated, and is mostly concerned about what is tangible and on the surface. While Scorpio is associated with sharing or pooling of money, resources, and value, Taurus is about what belongs to the individual as well as one’s personal value.
This Full Moon is in a sextile with Chiron, while Uranus is right in between them at the midpoint. This could manifest as changes, insights, and/or breakthroughs to help us move beyond insecurities or detach ourselves from emotional attachments more easily. This can also be a good time to tap into our gifts as well. The Sun was in an exact aspect with Chiron 2-3 days before and therefore for some people part of this energy could of been more noticeable then.
Venus In Capricorn, In Harmonious Aspect With Neptune And The Moon’s Nodes
Venus, the ruler of this Full Moon, had recently entered Capricorn a few days prior and will be there until December 7th. Venus is the planet of love, beauty, pleasure, creativity, and money while Capricorn is the sign of ambitions, career, business, traditions, commitments. We can expect that over this upcoming month everyone will experience their own version of a synthesis of these energies.
Venus is also moving towards a trine to the North Node in Virgo and a sextile to Neptune at the the South Node, which will be strongest from November 18th-20th. For some people, this can be a great time to start to actualize or materialize any dreams we have had in the past that involves doing work that we actually enjoy. This is especially true if it involves creative and artistic efforts.
For others, this can be a time where we can more easily move beyond illusions, inadequacies or escapism, and potentially replace with a newfound love and passion towards our work, or even starting to appreciate a more realistic, structured and organized life. This is reinforced by Chiron-Uranus energy mentioned above.
Mars In Aquarius In A Sextile With Mercury In Sagittarius
Mars shifted from Capricorn to Aquarius just over 5 days before this Full Moon and will be there until December 19th. Mercury went into Sagittarius just 2 days prior which will last until December 2nd/3rd. They are making a harmonious aspect with each other which will be strongest the 14th-16th.
Mercury rules ideas, communication, and thought process while Sagittarius likes to do things in a big way. This sign is about our beliefs and having a ‘big picture’ outlook overall. Sagittarius is also associated with travel, countries, media/marketing, and freedom. With Mercury here, the way we communicate and think will be reflective of this.
Mars has to do with action; our will and drive and in Aquarius it is collectively oriented, innovative, technological, and about creating change and doing things differently for a better future. Due to Mercury being in aspect with Mars, our big thoughts, ideas, and communications will assist us in any Aquarian-type action we will be taking.
Mercury and Mars energy working together also has to do with communicating with passion, quick thinking, and being very direct. At the Full Moon, Venus is right in between these two planets at the midpoint, and this suggests that this Mercury/Mars combination can help us in doing the work that we enjoy, earning money, and in how we express our love and values.
