Nov 14th – 20th
Full Moon in Taurus
What to expect: High expectations
What to watch out for: Disappointment
What will it affect? Relationships, commitments
On Nov 14th the full moon is in Taurus. This Full Moon sits in a jewel shop with the most magnificent jewels…. well at least according to the sabian symbol for the degree this Full Moon sits on. The problem is that the full moon is also square to Pallas in Aquarius. Promises made at this time seem attractive, but may lead to disappointment. On the same day Mercury is conjunct with the marriage asteroid Juno, both of which are in the bachelorette sign of Sagittarius. It’s not that we are unable to commit, but that we need more than ever to bond through our shared beliefs, shared philosophies and shared need for freedom. Strangely enough we may share the same need, but arrive at very different ideas of what that looks like. The good news is that we won’t waste much time in making a final decision. We are decisive and quick to make our assessments and move on to the next. If it’s not right, it’s not right.
Why? Full Moon at 22°Ta37′, Mercury Conjunction Juno, Mercury Sextile Mars, Mercury Trine Transiting Vesta, Mars Opposition Transiting Vesta
What to expect: False information
What to watch out for: Missing details
What will it affect? Communications, contracts
Nov 17th and 18th communication can be tricky. It’s also a pivotal time for decision making. However, communications are likely to be riddled with missing, misleading or outright false information. It will be important not to take anything at face value. Verify terms and conditions, repeating back and checking on what was said and what was understood, and checking for what was intentionally not said will all be useful strategies at this time.
These couple of days are best to avoid big business transactions or agreement.
Why? Mercury Square North Node, Uranus Sextile Pallas, Mercury Square Neptune
Suspending our Disbelief
What to expect: Overlooking things
What to watch out for: Blinders
What will it affect? Relationships, Money, Direction
Neptune goes direct on Nov 19th. When in direct motion, Neptune once again suspends our disbelief. We are swept yet again into fantasy, action, feats of bravery, we are asked to gloss over facts, excuse inconvenient truths, and be selective in our attention. In truth… ignorance is sometimes bliss. And we may wholehearted need a break from reality. Reality, as they say, sucks! Neptune turns on its heels and heads back in a direct motion, blowing kisses to Venus. Venus has just finished getting her bearings from the North Node and so knows just how to react and respond. If you’re wondering where she got the answer… and where you might too, go back in your journal and check what you wrote at the beginning of the month. Even if you are glossing over reality, at least it’s in service of moving forward. Maybe you decide to overlook someone’s minor flaws. The trick to knowing if it’s right, even though it’s wrong, is listening to and following your heart. And in the words of Selena Gomez, the heart wants what it wants.
Why? Neptune Stationary, Venus Sextile Neptune, Venus Trine North Node
