fullmoonnasaForecast 11/17 This Taurus Full Moon is free of the past month’s eclipses and may offer an integration that feels more grounded and less fraught with change. How deeply the eclipse season affected you is seen through your personal horoscope. Regardless, whenever we have a Full Moon, (exponentially magnified when an eclipse) an area in your life is lit up.

The Taurus Full Moon, highlights our attitude towards possessions, food and the body. Since the moon is bright by the Scorpio Sun’s radiance, it fosters integration with the psychological needs that propel our obtainment of wealth and our orientation to the body.

If you do not attract the financial stability you would like, this is a great day to reflect on why. Since our entire economy is going through upheaval, there may be only so many pieces of this you can take personally.

If money is not available through the means you would like, then find a possession you love and focus on that. If you have an altar and it fits, put your possession on it- or a picture that represents it if it’s too big. How did this possession come to you, what is its story?  As you reflect on this, be open to receiving more. What is it you may have to give or complete to let more in?

Remember that your most precious possession is the body that carries you through this lifetime. Give it a careful once-over with Scorpionic awareness of your mortality. What can you give your body that will let it know how much you love it? Love your body. If this is not easy for you to do, it’s time for Louise Hay!

Serenade-full moonThe Sabian symbol** for this Taurus Moon is  “A Spaniard serenading his senorita”. Think of this image as a celebration for your body and everything you value; homage to the essence of you. A serenade is romantic which is appropriate because all Love expands from self-love. I’m not talking about a narcissistic lens, but a healthy relationship with the person you know best: You.

Many astrologers consider the dwarf planet Ceres (the goddess of the Harvest), to emulate Taurus expression.  Ceres’ love for her daughter depicts a nurturing love. We expand and become more when loved.

The Full Moon cast for Washington DC shows Pluto (symbolizing death and transformation) rising with Venus (love and money). Uranus (change) anchors the horoscope on the cusp of the actual land and borders of the country. This can indicate actual physical upheaval as well as unpredictable events. Ceres is at the highest point, the midheaven- how the country is seen by the world. It would seem that it is essential that we prioritize nurturing the people. The fastest way to create these changes is for each individual to work with Self.

full mooncampThe Sabian symbol** for the Scorpio Sun is “Indians making camp”. In contrast with the serenade, this image shows a collective focus. It extenuates the need to pay attention to how you provide security for your needs. There are ways to attract wealth, possessions and well-being to your life although you may not presently see the way. Let it be in a way that is harmonious with your spirit. Gather the disparate voices in your head for the common goal so that you know the end result is to create a home and harbor of peace.

The Taurus Full Moon occurs at 10:16 am ET after which the moon is void-of-course* through 7:07 pm. Once the moon enters Gemini, a sense of urgency may throw an otherwise tranquil evening. This may come from a situation that demands your attention, in which case you act on it. However, it may simply come from within you, with no clear-cut agenda. You can channel it into a week’s list of priorities or find a stimulating book to put the monkey mind to work. ©Cucinell 2013- all rights reserved


*Moon VOC/Void-of-Course… in Taurus, relaxation is demanded. You can try to accomplish a big task, but that couch looks awfully inviting. Give in and let yourself enjoy a leisurely lunch and your productivity will increase afterwards.

** We are still in the process of understanding the Sabian symbols, which were channeled in 1925. The spiritualist astrologer Marc Edmund Jones, took Elsie Wheeler, a clairvoyant confined to a wheelchair to a San Diego park with a project. He put a symbol for each of the 360° of the zodiacal wheel on 360 cards. She proceeded to come up with visual phrases for each one of them. They were done in random order and they have a magic that is hard to decipher, yet feels totally right.
