Theme: Focusing the Searchlight

This Dark Moon occurs at the time of a quadruple conjunction of Moon, Sun, Mercury, and Mars in Sagittarius. Sagittarius is a sign of exploration and discovery, and right now there is a lot of strong personal energy coming together with that intention.

Questions for this Moon:

What do I seek?
What treasure will I find at the end of my quest?
What vision awaits on the horizon?
Where will my learning take me?

Moon Goddess - Taurus

Moon Goddess - Taurus

Best evening for ritual: November 12 (Wednesday)

Theme: Building Permanent Security

This Full Moon finds the Sun and Moon forming a strong, symmetrical kite pattern with Jupiter and Saturn. It’s a rare opportunity: the forces of creation and constraint allied in the service of our conscious and unconscious needs. The Sun is closely and symmetrically flanked by Mars and Mercury, not closely enough to be strongly connected to the pattern, but creating some additional context.

A Taurus Moon is about stability and physicality; persistence and pleasure. It can manifest something desirable and keeping it safe and sound for continued enjoyment.

This is a time when you can put some passion and emotional energy into securing your accomplishments on the material plane. Although nothing lasts forever, tonight you can make something strong and durable for yourself – something that may last months, years, or a lifetime. It can be a new career, a new home, a lifestyle shift; it’s up to you.

Affirmations for this Moon:

What I build now endures.
I am rock of constancy.
I am master of accomplishment.
I have everything I need.
