November’s full Moon was called the Beaver Moon because it was the time to set traps, before the waters froze over. This Moon was also called the Full Frost Moon.
A Full Moon reflects back the light of the Sun. Scorpio’s Sun has been through the ringer. On November 6th, the Sun joined Saturn, bringing our conscious will into play regarding our feelings about intimacy, betrayal, power, sex and shared resources. Mercury turned direct on November 10th, bringing our conscious intellect to the matter at hand–the naming and transformation of our feeling life. It is a call for radical Truth.
What have you learned about yourself during this retrograde? Have you been able to retrieve a part of your Shadow that wants to live again? Have you let go of personal wounds that need to die? If you’ve left behind your old story concerning your secret sorrows, now is the time to stop and rest before you begin your new story. There’s plenty of time to get to work on it.
Now is a time to rest. That’s what all our late year celebrations are for. Our harvest is in, we’ve let the old die with the year and now we wait for the new light to be born at Winter Solstice. It is a time to rest and celebrate the fact that we made it through another year!
While Scorpio releases the old into death and transforms what has been dark into light, Taurus welcomes in the blossoms of the new life of Spring. So in the depths of outer darkness, a Taurus Full Moon can remind us of the pleasures of life. Taurus is an earth sign, concerned with our physical body and Nature. Taurus’ ruler Venus loves beauty and pleasure in appropriate amounts, generates self-worth when we develop our talents and helps us decide what will make us happy so we ask for what we really want.
Venus has just connected with Uranus and Pluto on November 14-15, bringing lasting feminine values to our ongoing revolution of consciousness. Venus challenges Uranus to include the Wisdom of Love in his revolution while she brings a bit of beauty and love to the Lord of the Dead. Even Pluto needs to know he’s loved! If we had no death in the world, there would be no room for birth. Venus can connect us to our own deaths as part of our ongoing life!
Venus is now in the sign of Capricorn. When Venus visits Capricorn, we discover if our social system is taking care of our heart needs. And on a personal level, Venus in Capricorn connects us to how well our inner “rules’ are serving our lives. The Goddess of Love and Wisdom reminds us that this time, our revolution must be at the service of Love and Peace.
