This Full Moon in Taurus is in opposition to the sun in the sign of Scorpio. This creates a Taurus/Scorpio polarity. They are reflections of two important sides of our nature, Taurus longing for stability and security, and Scorpio being more aggressive in a need to eliminate and procreate. Both fixed signs, they do not adjust easily. A Full Moon is the peak of a cycle, so we are experiencing a peak in our manifesting power. This Moon's influences signify life and death, generation and regeneration. This period we can experience a battle in our psyches, something that requires periodic adjustment for balance. Use the strength of this cycle to make the necessary adjustments for balance and peace.
We are experiencing the second Full Moon in this current season of 'death' (Autumn into Winter). This Taurean Moon energizes us to reflect on the beauty and possibilities that life offers up. Assess what needs to be conserved and protected during the coming months, so it can be renewed in the Spring months. What in your life is important? Look deeply at those things you value and decide...is it worth conserving, or should you let it go?
During this time we are also urged to work with others to create change, either within or without. With the influences of both Taurus and Scorpio, both strength and weakness are at play. Each issue/problem that arises should be put in perspective. Look upon them as problems to be solved, rather than hurdles to overcome.
There ends my short share on this Full Moon in Taurus. Hopefully it doesn't meander too much, and makes some sense. (*grin*)
The following is information from the Farmers Almanac on the current Full Moon, also known as the full Beaver Moon:
- "Full Beaver Moon - November: This was the time to set beaver traps before the swamps froze, to ensure a supply of warm winter furs. Another interpretation suggests that the name full Beaver Moon comes from the fact that the beavers are now actively preparing for winter. It is sometimes also referred to as the Frosty Moon."
