Taurus Full Moon: November 12, 2019, 8:34am Eastern
The lunar cycle that started with the uber-intense Scorpio New Moon peaks at the Taurus Full Moon – a time of culmination, fruition, healing and revelation. The Full Moon’s auspicious alignments with Saturn and Pluto in Capricorn and Neptune in Pisces point to the potential for manifesting your dreams.
The Moon is exalted in earthy, sensual Taurus, helping you feel into and direct your attention toward what’s beautiful and abundant in your life, and express gratitude for all you have. This is a powerful Full Moon for deepening your connection with and giving love to your body and the Earth.
The Full Moon is always a time of revelation, but this one is especially potent as it coincides with the rare transit of Mercury, which occurs on the numerologically significant November 11th. 11 is considered a “master number” and the date 11/11 is thought to open a portal to higher consciousness.
Mercury always meets up with the Sun at the halfway point of a Mercury retrograde cycle. At a Mercury transit, their alignment is so precise – from our earthly perspective, similar to an Eclipse – that Mercury appears as a black dot moving across the face of the Sun. (If you got to see the Venus transit in 2012, it will look something like that.)
There are only 13 Mercury transits in this entire century! This rare alignment can accelerate and amplify connection with your own heart, others’ hearts, the “heart of the matter,” and the heart of the Cosmos/Great Mystery itself – all represented by the Sun.
This potent Mercury-Sun conjunction plants a seed for new ways of thinking, connecting and communicating. Important information may be revealed, prompting a significant turning point in your life.
Mercury retrograde in Scorpio (October 31-November 20), is on a hunt for the life force. On and near 11/11 you’ll have opportunities to gain a deeper understanding of what really turns you on, what you’re passionate about, what brings you alive, and what you’re committed to at an emotional/root level.
Take time around the Taurus Full Moon to be in nature, meditate, tune into your body, pray, and make magic, art and love. Taurus is ruled by Venus, Goddess of love, pleasure, beauty and the erotic.
For more insight into what this Full Moon means for YOU, find the house in your birth chart that contains 19 degrees Taurus. The areas of life signified by that house are where you’re invited to:
- slow down and tune into your body’s guidance and wisdom;
- let go of what no longer feels nourishing or aligned with your values;
- heal wounds around self-love and self-worth;
- come out of “survival mode” and open to receiving more support;
- take steps to create more pleasure, beauty and love.
Events from the past may also come to fruition or completion in these areas.
It’s also useful to pay attention to the house opposite the Full Moon – the house activated by the Mercury transit. The areas represented by that house are where transformational information may be coming to light.
