Taurus Full Moon

We've just come through a scorpionic tsunami of energies, with turning the Wheel of the Year at Samhain/Halloween, the two eclipses, the 4th Pluto/Uranus square, Mercury's retrograde of Scorpio finally ending, Jupiter going retrograde in Cancer and Neptune and Chiron turning to direct motion in Pisces.   Now that the wave has gone through, you might find yourself wishing for a moment of quiet, of peace, of safety.

Well, a Taurus Moon is a cure for Scorpio's death rattles.   So let go of the worries and frustrations and let yourself sink into your body so you can refresh your soul.  

A Full Moon reflects back the light of the Sun.    Scorpio's Sun has been through the ringer.   On November 6th, the Sun joined Saturn, bringing our conscious will into play regarding our feelings about intimacy, betrayal, power, sex and shared resources.   Mercury turned direct on November 10th, bringing our conscious intellect to the matter at hand--the naming and transformation of our feeling life.   It is a call for radical Truth.

What have you learned about yourself during this retrograde? Have you been able to retrieve a part of your Shadow that wants to live again?   Have you let go of personal wounds that need to die?    If you've left behind your old story concerning your secret sorrows, now is the time to stop and rest before you begin your new story.   There's plenty of time to get to work on it.

Now is a time to rest.   That's what all our late year celebrations are for.   Our harvest is in, we've let the old die with the year and now we wait for the new light to be born at Winter Solstice.   It is a time to rest and celebrate the fact that we made it through another year!

While Scorpio releases the old into death and transforms what has been dark into light, Taurus welcomes in the blossoms of the new life of Spring.   So in the depths of outer darkness, a Taurus Full Moon can remind us of the pleasures of life.   Taurus is an earth sign, concerned with our physical body and Nature.   Taurus' ruler Venus loves beauty and pleasure in appropriate amounts, generates self-worth when we develop our talents and helps us decide what will make us happy so we ask for what we really want.   

Venus has just connected with Uranus and Pluto on November 14-15, bringing lasting feminine values to our ongoing revolution of consciousness. Venus challenges Uranus to include the Wisdom of Love in his revolution while she brings a bit of beauty and love to the Lord of the Dead.   Even Pluto needs to know he's loved!   If we had no death in the world, there would be no room for birth.   Venus can connect us to our own deaths as part of our ongoing life!

Venus is now in the sign of Capricorn.   When Venus visits Capricorn, we discover if our social system is taking care of our heart needs.   And on a personal level, Venus in Capricorn connects us to how well our inner "rules' are serving our lives.   The Goddess of Love and Wisdom reminds us that this time, our revolution must be at the service of Love and Peace.   

This Taurus Full Moon occurs on Sunday November 17, 2013 at 7:16am PST/ 10:16am EST/ 3:16pm GMT.

The Sabian Symbol for the Sun at 26* Scorpio is: American Indians making camp after moving into a new territory.   This image implies the ability to adjust swiftly to new situations by tuning into what is required.   Living in harmony with nature gives us the ability to "know' what to do next.   Being intuitively at home everywhere means that you're at home with yourself.   So get in tune with the season and relax!   Learn to sense your inner center, the calm within you.

The Sabian symbol for the Moon at 26* Taurus is:   A Spanish gallant serenades his Beloved.   This Moon image suggests that it's time to pay attention to the Heart.   For a man, a woman symbolizes his soul.   For a woman, a man symbolizes her protection and self-actualization.     It is time to sing to your soul and ask for Love.

As you can see, it is time to rest on your harvest and tune in within.   See what's incubating inside you.   What do you want?   What is your heart's desire?   I'm not talking about money and power, but about life and hope.   This is a great time to work on your new story.   If you have planets at 26* Taurus, Leo, Scorpio and Aquarius, this full Moon will light up those energies and connect you to your new story.

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.
