The Full Moon on November 12th is at 19 degrees 32 minutes Taurus across from the Sun in Scorpio.
The Taurus Scorpio axis unifies our ability to be self- sufficient and our ability to share resources with others.
Taurus learns to hunker down and gather it’s resources. With the full Moon here, we might wonder what we’re doing alone at home with a year’s supply of canned goods and no one to share them with.
Playing it safe, emotionally, can be comfy and hassle-free. It can also be a bit lonely or boring or even moving toward stagnation. One strength of the fixed signs is once they decide to make a new habit, they are able to stick with it.
Mercury will go direct at 12 degrees of Scorpio on November 20th. This retrograde cycle, leading up to Sun in Sagittarius time, asks us to listen to our inner conversations and to be conscious of how we speak to ourselves. Scorpio seeks transformation and a great place to start is with our inner voice and how we work with it. Even the words we don’t speak aloud have power, so our inner monologue can be refined to comfort, encourage, and embolden.
Venus, ruler of Taurus, is in mutable Sagittarius at this full Moon. Sagittarius guides us to develop our intuition, making this Moon a fine time for inner expansion, leading to interesting and expansive choices and actions on the outer. Sagittarius can also be optimistic and fun-loving; coaxing Taurus up into the light to share the labors of love that have been nurtured in solitude.
Taurus helps us in the realm of what we value and how we value ourselves. Sometimes it takes going out in the world, to a friend’s house, to a class, to work, even if we don’t feel at our best, to see that sharing our honest self can be of value in the world. Sharing how we have grown and changed and moved through hurt, even if we are still in it, can be life saving for others.
We can only hole up for so long before cabin fever sets in and we are really sick of our home-canned pickles.
It’s time to see if they can be traded with a neighbor’s tomatoes they put up over harvest time.
This is bringing the Full Taurus Moon into the resource sharing nature of Sun in Scorpio.
Clearly I am not just talking about canned goods. I am talking about knowing when to be in strengthening retreat, and when to come out and share the valuable self each of us is developing with others.
The energy shared then transforms ourselves, and those we touch; sparking evolution— small and large.
We don’t have just one purpose in this life on the outer plane.
On a daily basis we can tune in and see where our value and our power lies and how it can be expressed through us - to ourselves, and to others.
Lots of love, Lydia
