The Moon will be Full in the sign of sidereal Taurus in the star of Mrigasira on Wednesday, December 11th at 9:12 pm PST. Taurus is where we are grounding down into the material, physical world. The Moon is exalted in the earthy terrain of Taurus. We eat, we sleep, we take care of our sensory needs and wants and we aim to be harmonious, not just with others, but with the world around us. In contrast to our debilitated New Moon two weeks ago in Scorpio, where we rode the roller coaster of the emotional underbelly and faced our fears, Taurus is where we face our life and live it here and now. The specific star of this Full Moon, Mrigasira, is where we become unsatisfied with what we've always known and the comfort of our family values and run off into the world to find new ways of doing things. It is called “the Searching Star” and is often a search for spiritual truth. There is a warrior aspect to this star, where we must have the courage to leave and the faith to know the path will find us on our journey into the unknown. (Watch the video for the myth related to this star!)
Mercury is in Scorpio with our Sun, creating communication that has his strength and power backing it. The Sun in Scorpio brings the shadows into the light. It forces that which was hiding to come out like a flashlight and it shows us that in the end it's not as scary as we thought. Mercury in Scorpio is less aligned, however, wanting to control connection and communication and getting trapped in thoughts that are fearful and dark. With the Sun at the helm, we could have some powerful conversations that really speak to our hidden depths, but we also must beware of wielding power with our words that is aimed at manipulating others' feelings.
Mars is still in Libra, putting a harshness in our sweet idyllic world of peace and harmony and beauty. The occasional sound of stomping feet or pounding fists can only be ignored for so long! We also have to be aware that we might blame others for our lack of discipline right now. We make choices to lean towards luxury or connection and then feel guilty for not being more physically active and disciplined or logical, so we feel angry at the “other”. Likewise, with Venus still struggling her way through Sagittarius, we have to be aware that our relations are on thin ice right now. Best to find the people you have similar ideals and beliefs as and talk to them, unless you are ready to have a battle. With Jupiter in his own sign we are able to see the higher picture, and perhaps the similarities in different belief systems, but can also get caught way up in the dogma and social beliefs and constructs if we are not very evolved in this area of life. Venus is now in exact degrees with Saturn, putting a real strangle on our fun and happiness and creating fear around relationships and connection. This can create commitment, but it is fearfully-derived and the pressure that is on our planet of love right now does not make us feel super romantic. Coming on the heels of a Venus/Ketu conjunction, you may even be running back to, or questioning a love interest you just cut off.
