In the Stars November 13-20…shining light on the astrology of the week: Full Moon

Wake up slowly to a lazy Sunday. All things sensual, sweet, and simple are highlighted. As the day wears on we can plod along and get quite a lot accomplished with the Moon in fixed earth Taurus. Make time Sunday evening to plan the week ahead, as the Moon is VoC all day Monday and it won’t be a sharp start to the work week.

The Full Moon shines bright early Monday morning. The third of four SuperMoons in a row, this Full Moon is at perigee, its closest to the Earth. In perigee the Moon’s energy intensifies its pull on the tides and tectonic plates, increasing the likelihood of severe weather or geological events. It affects our psyches, as well. The Fixed Earth Moon in Taurus symbolizes accumulation and building; the Fixed Water Sun in Scorpio symbolizes death, letting go, and transformation. Weighing on us are the inseparability of polarities of gain and loss; construction and destruction; and spending and saving. The Sun aspects the Uranus/Eris/Ceres conjunction in Aries, calling us to widen our perspectives on the feminine. The results of the Presidential election have us thinking about this. The Moon is Void of Course all day until 5:23 PM PST, so use the brilliant Full Moon energy for meditation and intention setting, and insignificant small tasks. It is not a day for meetings or definitive actions. The Sabian Symbols for this Full Moon are about raising the vibration of our lives. The Moon’s Sabian Symbol for 23 Taurus is: “A jewelry shop filled with valuable gems; the social confirmation of natural excellence.” The Sun’s symbol for 23 Scorpio is: A rabbit metamorphoses into a nature spirit; the raising of animal drives to a higher level.”

Tuesday and Wednesday are days for conversations, phone calls, and writing projects, any medium that uses the written or spoken word. Curiosity is piqued; open up to what you can learn these two days, even in the most casual way, such as while standing in line at the grocery store. Tuesday’s aspects are a vast mixture of expansion and contraction; laziness and drive; and boundaries and boundlessness.

The Moon is Void of Course all day Wednesday until 4:57 PM PST. You may feel scattered, and may want to just go with wherever that varied energy and curiosity takes you. Perhaps you’ll discover something amazing! Wednesday evening, when the Moon moves into Cancer, settle in and enjoy a yummy, cozy dinner with your family.

Our attention is on home and family on Thursday and Friday. Thursday is a dreamy, soft, compassionate day until late afternoon when the Moon opposes Pluto, passionately stirring our emotions. Whatever fears or disappointments are rattling around inside of you will need to be addressed. You may as well face the truth, yours or someone else’s.

A Mercury-Neptune square gives confusion and cloudiness to Friday. Widen and soften your focus on matters of concern, and let your imagination soar. A Sun/Moon trine brings out good feelings and a sense of security and comfort. The fiery Leo Moon lights up the weekend, beginning at 7:14 PM PST. It is then time to let the good times roll!

Neptune stations, and moves direct in motion on Saturday. When a planet is stationary, its energy is amplified. Neptune symbolizes art and beauty (as well as illusion and deception). Venus makes a benefic sextile to Neptune, highlighting the artistic, visionary, dreamy, compassionate energy even further. Do something special this day to touch the divine, and engage with the imaginal realm. It is not a day for mundane matters. Visit an art exhibit, or get out your paints. Enjoy a concert, or play music. Write poetry. Infuse and enhance your life with more beauty and inspiration.

Sunday is another playful, creative, day that glows with the beauty of yesterday. The Leo Moon makes a Fire Grand Trine with Saturn and Uranus, another day not to be wasted on the ordinary. Fire up your creativity and engage in a hobby that brings you joy, or turn on the music and dance!

The Week in Short:

Sunday: All things sensual highlighted, and a lot can be accomplished. Plan the week ahead.

Monday: Full Moon: set intentions to raise the vibration of your life. Moon VoC until 5:23 PM PST, so tend to insignificant tasks not requiring decisions.

Tuesday: Connect, converse, and be curious.

Wednesday: Gemini Moon VoC. Scattered day. Don’t try to accomplish anything of consequence, but be open to discovery.

Thursday: Compassionate day; emotionally stormy evening. Deal with fears and disappointments.

Friday: Confused communication, and also feelings of satisfaction and comfort.

Saturday: Be inspired and creative. Let the good times roll!

Sunday: Grand Fire trine inspires and ignites us Dance…to the music!

Moon Void-of-Course: This is the time when the Moon makes its last major angular aspect with a planet before it moves into the next zodiacal sign tropically. This void time, when the Moon is not aspecting a planet, but rather floating on its own, is a time when things don’t come together and it’s difficult to make good decisions. Purchases made during void Moons often turn out to be unsatisfactory and not work out. Appointments often don’t come together, and meetings don’t result in progress or sound, lasting decisions. We more easily get lost or meander in trying to get somewhere. The VoC Moon times for the next month are listed below so that you can plan meetings, decisions, and purchases at times when the Moon is not VoC; and use the void times for gardening, reading, and routine task work.

Exact Void-of-Course Moon times for the month ahead (one lunar cycle) are:
