This weekend’s Full Moon could be a spectacular sight if the skies are clear. It’s one of the closest Full Moons to earth in 2017, and therefore dubbed a Super Moon.

In astrology, Taurus is a strong placing for the Moon as this is its sign of exaltation. This makes sense if you consider that the Moon rules your needs and where you find comfort in life, and Taurus is one of the tactile earth signs, representing security and safety. One of my favourite terms for the Moon in Taurus is ‘a safe harbour’.

Taurus/Scorpio axis

This Full Moon cuts across the Taurus/Scorpio axis of the zodiac, representing money and resources and where your values lie. Taurus is the physical and materialistic side of the spectrum, whereas Scorpio rules the metaphysical and all things hidden.

It’s an excellent time to practise the law of attraction and to trust in life’s abundance. On a practical level, this is a good weekend to focus on finances and consider ways to eliminate debt or make more of what you have. Scorpio is about letting go of what’s no longer useful and is linked to recycling and the never-ending circle of growth, death & rebirth.

Sun Aspects

If you were to look at the astrology wheel for this Full Moon, there are some powerful planetary aspects which feel helpful and bountiful. The Sun remains close to the planet of good fortune, Jupiter in Scorpio, and is in an easy sextile aspect to Pluto, Scorpio’s co-ruler. This feels magical, transformative even and both planetary aspects boost the power of the Full Moon.

The closest planetary aspect, however, is a stunning trine aspect from the Sun in Scorpio to Neptune in Pisces, also at 11 degrees. This is brilliant for dreaming, visualisation, spiritual growth, yearning for something beyond the everyday. Neptune’s realm is vast and boundless and the Sun in Scorpio wants to dig deep to seek out hidden riches.


There is one twist, however, a blast of the unexpected. This is because very close to the time of the Full Moon, Venus in Libra opposes Uranus in Aries. This is important for a Taurus Full Moon because Venus is the ruler of Taurus, so there’s a connection here. Venus is currently strong in Libra, the sign of relationships, but Uranus promises a surprise element.

Look out for someone who acts out of character or doesn’t agree with your plans or ideas. You might realise where there’s unity in your relationships during this Full Moon, but also where there’s dissociation, splitting off. Concentrate on your own affairs and your own well-being, especially if you and someone close are in disagreement.

Here are the areas highlighted by this Full Moon depending on your own Sun Sign:

  • Aries – personal finances, possessions  other peoples’ money, money owed
  • Taurus – image, self-identity, personal goals  relationships, other people
  • Gemini – retreat, secrets, self-undoing  work, service, health
  • Cancer – friends, groups, society  children, creativity, entertainment
  • Leo – work, status, responsibility  home, family
  • Virgo – travel, study, exploration  communication, neighbours, siblings
  • Libra – other peoples’ money, money owed  personal finances, possessions
  • Scorpio – relationships, other people  image, self-identity, personal goals
  •  Sagittarius – work, service, health  retreat, secrets, self-undoing
  •  Capricorn – children, creativity, entertainment  friends, groups, society
  • Aquarius – home, family  work, status, responsibility
  • Pisces – communication, neighbours, siblings, local neighbourhood  travel, study, exploration

Find a Safe Harbour

Focus on sensual activities this weekend and consider what you need to create your own safe harbour in life. Slow down the pace so you create time in your life to tap into your inner needs and longings. Emotions are always heightened during the Full Moon phase and you often see your situation clearly. This is potentially a profound time of insight and understanding.

The November 3rd/4th Full Moon in the earth sign of Taurus is going to be showering all of us with love and abundance, making it one of the most magical Moon’s of 2017.

November is already a power month seeing as it holds the vibration of 11, and this Full Moon is the perfect way to kickstart all of this wonderful energy.

11 is a sacred number in numerology as it represents divinity, rebirth and higher consciousness. It is also the number associated with angels. This vibration will be with all of us through the month of November, making it the perfect time to turn our dreams into goals and our goals into actions.

Couple this 11 energy with the Taurus Full Moon and the first part of November is going to be glittering with an abundance of opportunities for money, success and romance.

Since the October 19th New Moon, we have all been guided to start planting seeds and making wishes. This was also seen with the rare alignment of Jupiter and the Sun which occurred on October 26th as well.

Whatever seeds you have been tending to during this time, wherever you have been putting your energy, you are now really going to be able to reap all the rewards.

This Full Moon is really going to be guiding you, all you need to do is start taking steps forward in the direction of your choosing.

If you have been looking for love, or looking to open your heart after a heartbreak, this Full Moon energy is also going to be supporting you. Put yourself out there, go on a date, or do a heart chakra clearing.

Love is really going to be in the air on this Full Moon, so use it to your advantage! It is also the perfect time to have a deep and meaningful with a loved one, and to share your true thoughts and feelings.

There is so much harmony surrounding this Full Moon that it really is going to support you in whatever way you need to be supported.

The Taurus Full Moon is also going to be delivering waves of abundance and prosperity, so take advantage of this energy too by organising your finances, taking on new projects at work, or look for ways to raise your income.

If you have a business idea you are looking to get off the ground, this Full Moon will also be supporting you, so make a plan and start taking action.

The energy of this Full Moon will be handed to all of us on a silver plate, but we actually have to take action to feel and see this energy in operation for ourselves.

The Universe is always offering us goodies to use, but a lot of the time we fail to see them, or are so concerned with looking for something else that we lose sight of what is really in front of us!

From the beginning of the year, we have all been beckoned to start a new chapter. We have all been called upon in different ways to break free of old patterns and start something new.

Transformation like this can be extremely challenging, and perhaps many of you are feeling zapped and depleted at this point in the year.

This Full Moon comes as a reminder that the Universe is on your side, and that it is there to offer you exactly what you need.

This Full Moon is so bountiful and wonderful, that it is really going to help you regain a lot of your strength and inner knowing as you start making your way through this new chapter in your life.

Again, to feel this energy you have to act. So think about what direction you want to go in, think about what you want in your life, and then start taking steps to make it happen.

Because we are dealing with Full Moon energy, there may be things that we need to release as well.

For this Full Moon, we are going to be called to release all the self imposed blocks that we have been putting on ourselves. We are going to be called to release all of the self-sabotaging thoughts, patterns and ideas that we have been carrying around.

This Full Moon comes as a reminder that the only person standing in your way is You. This Full Moon reminds us that the world is on your side, you just need to get out of your own way and start living the life that you want without making excuses.

Excuses are really just fears, and when you can acknowledge this and address the fear, it allows you to push past it.

Fear is a natural and a normal part of the human condition, but we have to rise up and we have to believe in ourselves more than our fear.

Use the energy of the November Full Moon to rise up and shed all the fears that hold you back from living the life you want. Use this energy to push past any boundaries or barriers that you have created so you can start making steps forward.

This Full Moon favors slow, methodical steps that are aligned with your highest intention. Work with this energy, and very soon you will start seeing tangible, bountiful and abundant results.
