Full Moon in Taurus – 12/13 November 2019 – productive transformation


The Full Moon this month occurs on either Tuesday 12 or Wednesday 13 November 2019 with the Moon at 19°51′ degrees of the sign of Taurus and the Sun in the opposite sign of Scorpio at 19°51′ degrees.

It is exact on Wednesday 13 November 2019 at 0:34 am Australian Eastern Daylight Time (AEDT). In Los Angeles it is exact on Tuesday 12 November 2019 at 5:34 am (PST), in New York on 12 November 2019 at 8:34 am (EST) and in London on 12 November 2019 at 1:34 pm (GMT).

The sign of Taurus:

Taurus ‘the Bull’ has a Fixed mode signifying the middle of the seasons. Fixed energy is routine, regular and has a sense of pattern. It sustains and preserves that which is initiated in the Cardinal phase (Aries in this case). Taurus is also associated with the Earth element concerning stability, predictability, groundedness and practicality. Some keywords for Taurus include: patience, steadfastness, reliability and sensuality. Unhelpful applications of Taurean qualities include stubbornness and inflexibility, being too cautious, methodical and deliberate, and too much self-indulgence in the sensual comforts of life.

The Moon is Exalted in the sign of Taurus, where her daily habits, rhythms and instincts appreciate the dependability of Taurus. The Moon is also making a harmonious, flowing trine aspect with Saturn and Pluto in Capricorn. This makes any necessary emotional restructuring and rebirthing easier to manifest through discipline; bringing up what is buried or hidden, and  breaking things down for renewal.

The sign of Scorpio:

From October 24 until November 23, 2019 the Sun will occupy the sign of Scorpio, ‘the Scorpion.’ Scorpio too has a Fixed mode. With Scorpio, imagine unabiding emotional depth and loyalty. Scorpio is also associated with the Water Element concerning feelings and emotions, instinct and sensitivity. Some keywords for Scorpio include: passion, resourcefulness, control, power, privacy, intensity, determination, and strength of will; however people with strong Scorpionic tendencies may wish for complete transformation, which can occur through crisis. Unhelpful applications of Scorpionic qualities include being secretive, jealous, possessive, and unforgiving – seeking revenge for betrayal or having a “sting in the tail.”

Mercury Retrograde:

Messenger planet Mercury is currently Retrograde in Scorpio, conjunct the Sun and opposite the Moon at the time of this Full Moon. Any thinking, speaking, learning and reasoning will come from an emotional and introspective space. Dig deep,  formulate your ideas and rationalise these before communicating and/or making changes.

The Full Moon is a time for culmination, completion and closure. It is time for letting go and releasing that which doesn’t serve our highest good. Both Taurus and Scorpio are signs concerned with security and resources – material (Taurus) and emotional (Scorpio). There may need to eliminate baggage in one or both of these areas.

Where does the Full Moon fall for you, affecting the following areas of life (Houses):

1-7 House axis – Relationships – the self and other; “I” and “we”

2-8 House axis – Resources – personal values, material goods, material possessions and security, plus shared resources and possessions, emotional intimacy, and transformation

3-9 House axis – The mind – communication, language, facts, siblings, short journeys, and beliefs, philosophies, higher education, long journeys, teaching

4-10 House axis – Parents – home, roots, past, heritage, family, parents, foundations, and vocation, status, authority, career

5-11 House axis – Creativity, recreation, children, play, pleasure, romance, self-expression, and community, groups, friendships, shared goals, projects, social reform and allies

6-12 House axis – Service work – everyday life, health, craft, daily routines and rituals, colleagues, pets, and surrender, retreat, the mystical, institutions, the unconscious.

The next lunation is a New Moon on 26/27 November 2019 in the adventurous sign of Sagittarius.
