Full Moons are the perfect expression of the seed planted at the New Moon. Our last New Moon was a solar eclipse, a more intense version of our monthly new moons. Solar eclipses start a new cycle and birth something new, something that's been waiting to be expressed and lived out.

With this Scorpio solar eclipse, the energy was intensified by Scorpio's tremendous emotional power. You might find yourself compelled by others to confront your projections and fears. What have you been feeling and hiding? What feeling is bursting to come out? Why won't you let it out? Apple's CEO Tim Cook admitted he was gay and proud of it. What have you pulled out of your closet?

An intense Goddess for this time of year is Ereshkigal, the Sumerian Goddess of the Underworld, sister and twin to the bright goddess Inanna. If you want to go soul searching and confront your Shadow, Ereshkigal is the goddess for you. You can read more about Ereshkigal at my Lady Wisdom blog at: http://ladywisdomchronicles.blogspot.com/

At the solar eclipse two weeks ago, we were challenged to birth a new emotional body--one that can relate to others in a healthy, self-aware way. That means examining those feelings and needs you usually repress and try to ignore. That means letting our emotions speak to us so we know what we're feeling and then can communicate it to others. With Venus and Pallas joining that solar eclipse, we were seeded with the cosmic intelligence and strategy to ensure that a deep emotional purge could take place. Venus gives us the self-love we need to let these stagnant waters drain away. We need to let these repressed feelings flow out of us, so new feelings can flow in. Our emotional bodies need to grow up. Now's the time for it!

Scorpio relates to how we are intimate with others, how we share values and ideals, how we differ and yet how we get along despite those differences. Scorpio helps us change through the alchemical bath in its Cauldron of Transformation.

Our Scorpio nature desires and fears in equal measure . We all desire, first and foremost, love. Our desires are centered on people, activities and things we love. But we also have a fear of love, a fear put there by patriarchal thinking. Because patriarchy has always feared love as the one force that can make you forget all loyalties and commitments to the social order. That's why it's so hard for most people to take the leap and stop working just for the money and start working at what they love.


This Taurus Full Moon will ground those desires, since Taurus is the Builder and form-giver of the zodiac. This is the sign of manifestation, of bringing something into form. Taurus is also the sign of values--not just social values, but our personal values. What we value, we pursue. Taurus wants to know what we value in life, how we value life, and how we value ourselves. Reflecting on Scorpio's hidden watery depths, this Taurus Moon helps us become aware of what we want most in life. What will give us joy, what will bring us peace, what will open up our creativity!

Taurus Full Moon 2014

The Taurus Full Moon occurs on Thursday November 6, 2014 at 2:23pm PST/ 5:23pm EST/ 10:23pm GMT.

This Full Moon occurs at 15* of Scorpio and Taurus--the power gates of these two signs. Honored at Samhain and Beltane, these are the gates of winter and summer, death and life, darkness and light. The veils are thin when the Sun passes over these degrees and energies can pass back and forth through the veils. Something significant can come through these gates if we call. What do you love? Call to it!

Cathy Pagano is the author of a new book, "Wisdom's Daughters: How Women Can Change the World". Cathy trained at the C. G. Jung Institut-Zurich in dream interpretation, then got her M.A. in Counseling Psychology in Feminine Spirituality, and along the way became a certified Life Coach. As an astrologer and storyteller, she weaves the Cosmic Stories written in the stars and from The Bard's Grove, comments on emerging archetypal themes in movies. Cathy works with the tools of the imagination - dreams, alchemy, myths, astrology, symbolic language, storytelling, ritual - to awaken the Soul's wisdom.

I believe that Americans are called to a higher consciousness at this point in our history. We are called on to live up to our ideals and create the country our forefathers imagined. Inner consciousness needs to be acted upon for social justice.

Cathy believes that our writers and artists must take up our responsibility to create art that inspires, teaches and heals our humanity.

Cathy writes about political, psychological/spiritual, and cultural issues.
