The Moon is Full in Taurus on November 4, 2017, at 1:23 AM EDT.
On Saturday morning, the Full Moon occurs as the Sun in Scorpio forms an opposition to the Moon in Taurus. This one is particularly close to the earth such that we may feel its themes a little more strongly.
Full Moons always pit opposite signs of the zodiac against each other but also invite us to work to achieve a balance between the opposing energies.
The contrast between earthy, practical, peace-loving Taurus and emotional, transformative, crisis-oriented Scorpio comes full bloom now. The Moon in Taurus wants us to find emotional fulfillment through the simple, tangible things in life, while the Scorpio Sun draws our attention to complexities, intangibles, and mysteries. The Full Moon illuminates this conflict between form (Taurus) and transformation (Scorpio), and between collecting (Taurus) and sharing (Scorpio). This is a passionate and creative Full Moon, ripe with possibilities and learning experiences. Intimate relationship matters, such as personal comfort levels and values as well as sexuality, figure prominently now. The Full Moon is a time of culmination and the promise of fulfillment of that which was started at the New Moon. It is an emotional time—a time of romance, fertilization, and relationships.
The Taurus Full Moon reminds us of the abundance of what we already have. A Venus-Uranus opposition is extremely tight at the time of the Full Moon, and since Venus is Taurus’ ruler, this aspect takes on even more significance. Recall that Uranus tightly opposed the New Moon on the 19th, and this has a similar feel to it — we need to awaken to a new way of doing things and enjoying ourselves. The Full Moon itself connects with Jupiter and harmonizes with Neptune, as both bodies get closer and closer to an exact trine, emphasizing the fertility, imagination, and magic of our realizations and epiphanies. Generosity and compassion increase and our faith is boosted. We more easily make personal sacrifices for what we believe to be the better good.
This phase of the Moon occurs at 11 degrees and 59 minutes of Taurus forming an opposition with the Sun at 11 degrees and 59 minutes of Scorpio, affecting people born with personal planets and points at approximately 8 to 16 degrees of the Fixed signs (Taurus, Leo, Scorpio, and Aquarius) most significantly.
