Insight into Heart & Mind

For those who look up to the starry firmament and wonder why the brightest light in the night sky, our beautiful Moon, is often referred to in folklore and astrological parlance as the ‘Triple Moon Goddess’, well, this is the Full Moon for you. With an ‘exalted’ and still earthy, crazy intense, Taurean Full Moon, we get to experience all three natural archetypes to full effect, with Maiden, Mother and Crone shining brightly against a twinkling starry background of interlinking relationships. 

As events, people and situations, initially display all the unpredictable qualities of hungry youth, as well as the passionately profound and practical talents from creative maturity, age-old grand-mother wisdom associated with a powerful Lunar Triad pulls up the rear, in what promises to be a deeply insightful and memorable three-night Full Moon. 

Igniting individual action with a youthful spark on the 11th, the determined but gentle Moon conjuncts Uranus, accenting team spirit and group activities. Kindling the Sacred Flame around hearth and home on the 12th, asteroid Goddess Vesta conjoins the Moon as Luna culminates, highlighting the central Motherly hub. As Luna wanes on the 13th, losing her lustre she enters into the closing moon phase to become the wise old Crone, experienced to then encounter Medusa (with her wisdom eye open), and the mesmerising seven sisters Pleiades (making it the Full Moon to weather forecast next season, i.e. if it is mild/cold/hot, then so will be Winter/Summer).

Planet of communication, Mercury, also deserves a special mention right at the start of this lengthy Full Moon report, as the currently retrograde winged messenger forms an extremely rare and magical alliance on the numerically powerful portal 11:11, with the intense Scorpio Sun at an almost Full Moon that feels very much like Full Moon – with Mercury occulting the Sun, with a message very much on point. 

The Mysteries of the Silvery Moon
But before going into this marvellous Mercury transit, a quick recap about the Moon, generally considered Yin and feminine. And why we say the Moon is ‘exalted’ in Taurus is because the Moon’s kind and gentle, nurturing qualities are best expressed in the sign of the Bull. A Moon in Taurus lives for love, taking care of business to live a mellow and good life with enough money, enough romance, enough food and fun to keep them happy. This, then, is a Moon to make sure one is remunerated accordingly for work done and time spent. 

Tuning into nature’s rhythms also tends to be easier whenever the Moon is in Taurus. Most beings, animals, children, women and some sensitive men, which can include the divinely empowered masculine function well – albeit subconsciously – within the monthly lunar cycle and its’ regular windows of opportunity. The Moonwise tend to note how and when energy levels rise and fall, and how our own bodies’ and emotions and reactions also wave, ebb and flow, all in tune with our personal lunar tides within an ever-changing Moon cycle, of which we all uniquely resonate.

Indeed, it is only when we are truly in tune with the Moon – and therefore our own emotional flow – is it really possible to connect to our most personal and subtle soul vibration, that part of our being which resonates at once with the three times, currently profoundly receptive to our past, most recent and ancestral. And with the Soul of the Earth presently stimulated by both a wonderfully exalted Taurus Moon, and intense Scorpio Sun Mercury, all together in helpful astral alliances to Saturn/Pluto, we witness all that is currently being released and transformed. Ultimately, this exalted Full Taurus Moon reveals how the power of love coupled with the power of renewal revives a heart and

11:11 ~> Growing Magical Moonbeams

A growing Full Moon is considered to be a most powerful and magical phase, marked by a lightness of heart and emotional confidence. With a Taurus Full Moon in the best possible sign for the grace of the Moon to glow: in sensual, earthy Taurus, Bullish desire and aspiration towards the Light of Love grows a steady pace. Though Taurus likes a sure and slow path to enjoy fields of clover, when the Moon conjuncts Uranus on the exact degree of the Moon’s 3° exaltation on the 11:11 master number day (i.e. not just the best sign to be in, but the very best degree for the Moon to be in on this numerically special day) a quick and sudden change in tempo could call for swift and caring, compassionate action.

Remember: just before the Full Moon is often an idealistic phase; things are not yet fully complete. Remain open, with a willingness to work with others. Humanitarian Uranus invites us to hold a clear image in our mind of an ethical future: one where it’s no longer just a feeling inside you but an actuality. Also bear in mind that while certain personal issues – mindful finance, altruistic love, and healthy body consciousness  continue to increase through (digital) awareness over the coming years, it may now actually be too soon to again try to repeat recent failed experiments or rebellions. Changes instigated Oct 28th’s New Moon may, however, now require certain moderation during this Mercury Retrograde lunation (with a note that Mercury goes forward 20th November).  As well as finding one’s place within potentially volatile collective vacillations at a truly symbolic time.

One day before the culminating Moon in Taurus, healer-trickster-brother Mercury is revealed to seen from earth (emerging from his Scorpionic Bat cave, wearing winged boots and waving his magical caduceus wand optional) to dramatically cross the Sun on November 11th 2019, which is Armistice Day, to make an extremely RARE transit of Mercury passing between Earth and Sun. This means for six hours we could (clear sky permitting) actually see this historic union of heart and mind, exactly conjunct @15:19UT.

This crossing only happens 13 times a century; the last was 2016, before that 1999; the next is 2032 – quite a while away. And with incredibly pertinent timing Mercury, planet of the mind, is with the Sun in Scorpio, in the sign of death and renewal, on the very day when we in the western world purposefully think about – and honour – all those who have died at war.

Here at the C*I*A, we align with many others sending good thoughts to all those who gave their lives in all war, most especially the two World Wars, for peace, freedom and love to flourish.  Interestingly, from the perspective of the school of psychological astrology, this Retrograde Scorpio Mercury is currently in the role of ‘psychopomp’, guiding departing souls from one world to the next with ease and agility: may all those gone beyond be at peace.

When quick thinking Mercury conjoins the Scorpio Sun, the planet of communication deeply align heart and mind to life’s sometimes difficult topics: taxes, shared ventures, sexual intimacy, as well as death and rebirth. This conjunction also denotes a special kind of insight, a sharp and precise extra-sensory perception that is able to penetrate with x-ray vision through any obscuration, to see any situation and hidden treasure clearly.

A point to make about this extra-cosmic extra-sensory awareness on offer, because such powerful insight also requires a well-understood, impartial view as a starting point in this pertinent situation, otherwise one could easily miss the moment by being wrapped-up in nonsense and distraction and remain in the dark about certain murky subjects.

Luckily, dynamic Mars is currently in the sign of intellectual balance and harmony, Libra. Though debilitated in the sign of the scales, warrior Mars in diplomatic Libra provides a balanced view and all-knowing air. Mars in Libra tends to be suave, debonair, cultured; a bit like James Bond taking time out to have his dry martini, shaken not stirred. And, at the exact moment of this Exalted Taurus Full Moon’s culmination, Mars is the leading planet of a locomotive shaped Full Moon horoscope, giving a seriously smooth-talker the heavenly lead to diplomatically announce proceedings.     

12:11 ~> Full Moon Culmination with Asteroid Vesta

With Asteroid Vesta, ‘Goddess of the Hearth’, kindling love, providing virtue and support in these degenerate times, and doubling Luna’s fertility at culmination; this may also be a time of an intense scrutiny to health and wealth, privacy and security in relationship, both personal and shared. ‘The Lights‘, Sun and Moon also strengthen associations to Saturn and Pluto, the authoritative planets which have rather fittingly symbolised the current power hunger from certain people – and now the internet of things.  How we personally fit into the long-term scheme of a 35-year cycle as changes to traditional structures continue to transform will depends upon releasing (past life) mistakes, and learn from what might have seemed ambitious if not practical, way back when (1984 to be precise).

This then, is a ‘Focus Full Moon’, and one not to rush. Whether alone, in delicious Taurean’ style at one with nature – or ensconced in one-to-one, family, or even at work within a group endeavour, during this Sun conjunct Mercury, opposite the exalted Full Taurean Moon conjunct Vesta, now is the time to take time and centre into what we care about, to dig deep and do our Mercury Retrograde research, and make sure we understand what we see, recognising we are also in some way or another, an interconnected part.

At the same time, avoid indulging too much emotional introspection for fear of being unrealistically self-judgemental.  Instead, be aware how Vesta brings added stability to a Taurean and sensually charged Mother Goddess hub. She shows how family devotion ought not to alienate personal needs for intimacy and comfort.

13:11 ~> Planning a Bull’s Eye

The third and final night of this Full Moon sees Luna look up from a cosy nest and ahead into that future, creating strategies, hopefully with a clear view of the target. Without getting attached to outcomes, Venus, the ruler of Taurus in freedom-loving Sagittarius, reminds us how love is not a feeling to be trapped or bound. Because when we feel expansive we are more likely to hit targets, be inspired, and endure difficulties with optimism. Just make sure your view is correct, and that you’re not totally operating from a purely self-centred point-of-view, otherwise you may just find your world is very small indeed.

One last celestial contact of note as the Moon wanes, and an experienced (and hopefully not too exhausted) Luna comes to a newly suggested dwarf planet, Hygeia.  Hygeia’s symbol in the horoscope is a Kundalini Snake Wand, the Caduceus, which gives us a clue as to her influence. Note: now at 8 Gemini, the sign ruled by Mercury, who also wields a magical caduceus.  Check where and what kind of wheeler-dealer mind-healing, is newly taking place in your scope at 8Gemini. 

Welcome Hygeia! Daughter of Asclepius*, medicine man who cured through herbs, dreams, water, and (kundalini) snake medicine; thus Hygeia is the nurse who knows where to apply the bandage, the Matron dwarf planet gifted in hands-on healing; Goddess of hygiene and cleanliness, currently urging us to clean-up the way we use our mind, and how we communicate within our community.  And as this Moon cycles begins to close her message is one of truth and freedom, and the healing that comes about when love radiates within those confines.

The next Full Moon 12th December also brings healing magic to the fore. Plan on it.

Until then: be the love!
With best wishes from Agent Dakini #87

*Asclepius is associated with Ophiuchus , the constellation in which the Medicine Man holds a snake and whose foot dips into the ecliptic to become a contentious ‘13th sign’ between November 30 and December 18th (when Saturnalia begins!).

Any astral argument about signs of the zodiac is allayed Solstice December 21st with the rebirth of the New Light King. Be aware however, this year’s Boxing Day annular Solar Eclipse, December 26th, is the most natural New Moon start to a New Year, in what is shaping up to be a decidedly interesting 2020!
