Take a breath before you look ahead, as November will culminate with series of notable celestial events, starting with a Full Moon and partial lunar eclipse in the sign of Taurus, on the 19th.
The Moon is the second most influential celestial body in astrology after the Sun, and it changes signs every two or three days. While new Moons are generally regarded as times to set intentions, full Moons are for reaping what we’ve sown. This full Moon also occurs in conjunction to Uranus, which has been idling in Taurus since 2018, where it will remain until 2025.
Take some time to reflect on where you were and what you wanted just before the summer began, when the Moon was new in Taurus. What made sense then, in terms of your quest for stability? What makes sense now? If it’s a need for security or more consistency, how can you bring that about while avoiding stagnation and inertia? Think short-term goals.
Meanwhile, Uranus in Taurus calls for us to simultaneously hold steady and to continue to evolve. What long-term projects are similarly idling? Can you use the combined energy of these two planets to push forward? Creativity is key.
