Here's the Chart for the Full Moon in Taurus, November 2nd, 2009.
The Full Moon is in Taurus, where its exalted, and draws us into a mood of reverence for natural rhythms. We slow down and become drunk on the sensual delights of Mother Nature. Earthy Taurus is about what we draw to us, in order to cultivate abundance. It roots us in, and asks us to slowly, but surely bring our ideas into form.
Taurus is languid and as slow as nature itself. But we are living in urgent times, and the fixed grand cross creates an "emergency" situation. It's a quickening for your treasure to be dug out, made shiny and shared widely.A Change Cocoon: The Fixed Grand Cross!
This might be a laid back Full Moon that's buzzing with life and cricket sounds. But the Full Moon joins with planets in the other fixed signs, to form a grand cross. That means there are four clusters in square to each other. It generates tension and sparks, which is momentum for your growth. The fixed signs are deeply entrenched, so this square will involve excavating your riches and bringing them to the surface.
The cosmic players include the Sun-Mercury in Scorpio, along with Mars in Leo and Jupiter-Neptune in Aquarius. It drops you into your tangible reality (Taurus) so you see how you're working your own fecund garden. Are you giving your natural gifts the time and effort they need to come into full flower? With Sun-Mercury in opposite Scorpio, it's a psychically potent moment to see what's holding you back. It cracks open the hard places of holding or hoarding, so you can release untapped potential. It invites you to release the grip of control, and take risks to be creative.
This is met by the themes of the Leo-Aquarius axis. Mars in Leo ignites a desire to act on what makes you unique, and share that as part of your gift to the world. It's about liberating your passions. It sets you up to be courageous and express who you really are. This highly energized Mars warms you from the inside, and the fully vibrant self steps forward. Finally, all this is gifted to humanity, as a contribution to the whole (Aquarius). This square is a big squeeze that can force out the hidden natural talents, so they can be enjoyed by all. On a spiritual level, it means unearthing your foundational gifts, mastering them, and offering it as Light (Aquarius) to en-lighten others.Now is the Time
The tug-of-war of this Full Moon puts you on notice. That it's time to claim your true gifts, whatever it takes. That might mean turning yourself inside out, to heal from psychic-emotional wounds that prevent you from stepping into creative power. The penetrating vision of Scorpio is a window into the psychic shadows that drive you. That plutonic energy can be re-directed back to your slow, steady rhythm of fulfilling your life purpose. And as you do that, your creative fulfillment is a gift to others, too.Kindred Spirits
Venus is in Libra, and at the Full Moon, it makes a sublime trine to the Jupiter-Neptune duo in Aquarius. This gives you the detachment to see above relationship quagmires. It creates a light social atmosphere, but one that is charged with electricity. It's a great time to initiate creative collaboration. And if the crucible of the grand cross kicks up a lot of bad vibes, this air trine allows for some perspective on what's happening. That adds to the special atmosphere of the Full Moon, for healing and going beyond old patterns.Affirmations for the Full Moon in Taurus:
