“Full Moon at 29 Taurus 17 on Nov 21 2010 Nudges us to Confront Our Fears!”

On November 21st 2010 at 9:28 a.m. PST is the second of the five Full Moons in a row that are in the last degrees of a sign.  Besides being predisposed to the sign it is about to leave, it is starting to be influenced by the sign it is moving toward.  The ruler of Taurus is Venus, and with Jupiter, both have recently turned direct with Jupiter conjunct Uranus and square to Mars and Mercury, ruler of Scorpio and Gemini, respectively.  A planet that goes retrograde or direct, must be considered having more than a subtle persuasion, doubling it’s’ effect it has on the other planets.  All this is indicating that we need to break away from our old normal way of solving any situation.  Acknowledging and recognizing our ability to think out of the box and to see the variety of steps and solution to solve each situation, which will come easier at this time.  This is the moment we will be more flexible in our thinking, and the need to look and address our fears and demons is very timely.  By facing our fears and demons with the astrological aspects as they are at this moment, we may come to the conclusion, that some, where never as important as we thought they were, and others have gone by the way side.  By clearing out the closet of outdated negative thoughts, we will make room for the positive creative thoughts and wishes to build the future we desire.

 “The Sabian symbol for the Moon in 30 degrees of Taurus and for the Sun in 30 degrees of Scorpio is taken from “The Sabian Symbols in Astrology by Marc Edmund Jones”, and what follows are my comments.

Taurus 30  A peacock parading on an ancient lawn  This is a symbol of the proper dignification which can be given to superficial excellencies, and of the momentary elevation of the individual beyond his capacity or worth as he is able to exhibit the various ideals of others in his own person.  There is an insouciance of vulgar display that serves a purpose here, encouraging men to strive for outer ornament when they are as yet unquickened to inner or eternal values.  The keyword is aloofness.  When positive, the degree is a special flair for dramatizing the heritage of the race or for capitalizing on the lessons of history in some special fashion, and when negative, a wholly unrewarding if not destructive self-contemplation.

Scorpio 30  The Halloween Jester  This is a symbol of a proper informality in the release of the buoyant energies through which an individual gains refreshment, or is freed for the moment from life’s insistent demand on him that he live according to some ideal beyond his potentiality.  The dignification of what often becomes an overbroad humor here serves its purpose by encouraging man to attempt new and various modes of contact with his fellows, and thus ultimately to achieve a more genuine spiritual sensitiveness.  The keyword is spontaneousness.  When positive, the degree is a gift for making the desires and ambitions of self not only of interest but of actual value to others, and when negative, ineptness of self-expression and contempt for established values.

This Sabian symbol brings out the need to show to others who we are and what we have.  Many times in the beginning of understanding what we want and need, we imitate and pretend to have what we don’t have.  The first rule of creating your wishes is to be what you want to be.  If you wish to have wealth, you need to express prosperity in all your actions and thoughts, even if you actually don’t feel it or understand it.  It is through constant repetition that it finally materializes into reality.  It is in understanding that similar things attract their own kind that we begin to understand how the Laws of Attraction works in obtaining what we wish for.  It is through living beyond the apparent reality, that the reality we are working towards materializes.  This can only be achieve by facing our fears and demons, and seeing the reality as we want it to be and working with astrological aspects and energies to arrive at that which we desire and wish for.

    Hi, I’ve been trying to find out some information on this full moon. For me, this full moon falls in my 8th house, directly opposed my uranus in my 2nd house. How bad is this?

      Hi Sam,

      It is difficult to say how you would experience this Full Moon without seeing and analyzing the whole chart. Taking any aspect out of context can change the meaning, and give more importance to the aspect then it should have. If you are worry about this aspect, I would advise you to consult a professional astrologer. In my experience these moon phases have a more subtle influence, and depending how we handle the situation, is how well we get through the experience. Seeing the condition of our natal Sun and Moon, and its’ aspect with one another, will give you a clue to how you will handle the situation, and whether it turns out the way you hope. As in the article, this is the time to face our fears, and maybe find out that what we fear was fear it self, and not the situation at hand.

      Regards and wishing you the best,
