Full Moon in Taurus – November 2nd, 2009

full_moon_smallWow! What a Full Moon is has been or I should say, is being. Just as the Sun, Ceres and Mercury are at 1º from each other, around the 10º Scorpio, the Moon at almost 10º of Taurus comes from making an opposition to Mercury and a square to Mars.
You can easily deduce that communication has not been great for some people, especially those with planets in any of the fixed sign, Taurus, Scorpio, Leo and Aquarius or any of these signs in the Ascendant.
Mars in Leo making a square to the Full Moon is not the easiest of aspects, since everyone’s ego, seems to be inflated, and there are quite a few power struggles going on, especially about issues of ego boundaries or recognition. Jupiter is also part of the equation from Aquarius, so groups and communities are being tested and perhaps disrupted.
Although personal planets (Mercury,Venus, Mars, Jupiter and Saturn) are easier to bring into our conscience and therefore, transcend and control than the outer planets (Uranus, Neptune and Pluto) which are impossible to control by any individual, most people can’t control these energies.
And this is the case with Mars in Leo. Egos will confront each other and we will argue even if we don’t want to.
Obviously the younger you are, the more difficult this is. And the truth is that couples or families, where there is an abundance of Leo, Taurus, Scorpio and Aquarius, are going to be in some kind of arguments.
So, what to do? One of the things that work with Mars is to do more physical exercise.
Another thing you can do is try to postpone the conversation that you know is going to lead to an argument. If you can.
The good thing about this Moon, is that Venus is making a very positive aspect to Neptune and if you are a creative person, this could compensate the aggravation of Mars, by being more active and inspired with the necessary energy to work more.
Suddenly we will feel with more courage to give people a piece of our mind. Especially, those we work with.
On the other hand, if you have been working hard at something, this could be pay off time.
Full Moons, never mind how weak or strong, tend to put an end to things, or resolve issues that have started at the time of the previous New Moon.
Among other things Neptune will station direct on November 4th, and Chiron have done so, on October 30th. A sense that things should begin to move on is in the air.
Since the Sun is in Scorpio, these are good times to analyze our feelings and begin to search within our psyche, the real motives of our actions. Never mind how threatening.
With the square of Saturn to Pluto, facing up to our dark side is not only indispensable but also enriching.
I had a dinner party on Saturday, with other Astrologers and Psychologists and we stayed talking until about 5 o’clock in the morning, highly unusual for me. (Not the talking, but the staying up that late)
Feel free to share your experiences of this Full Moon on this blog.
