On November 6th 2014 at 10:22pm, GMT, we have the first full moon following the last solar eclipse of October 24th which took place in the deeply emotional and penetrating sign of Scorpio. We had written back then that "a solar eclipse marks the opening or closure of a chapter regarding men who hold an important place in our lives, such as the father, the husband, the boss, or a business partner". We had also written about the potential lack of deep emotional attachment with close ones, as well as about "the potential for difficult experiences or disruptive changes in relationships and partnerships". Now at the first full moon after a solar eclipse that favoured possibly disruptive changes and transformations we have the first opportunity to see the objective implementation of these changes that may only have been on our minds or at a discussion level during the eclipse. The fact that Mercury, who’s back in direct motion, occupies the same degree it had occupied both on September 24 and October 13 reveals that the relevant ideas and discussions may have been pending ever since those dates.
More specifically, with the full moon in the fixed, earthy and sensual sign of Taurus we are expected to feel safe by consolidating, securing and - why not? - enjoying the changes that the last solar eclipse seems to have brought in relationships and financial matters. This is implied by Venus, the full moon’s dispositor, which is still conjunct the Sun in the sign of Scorpio, a conjunction that was active during the last solar eclipse and that also makes direct reference to the previous mid-January when the Sun and Venus, retrograde then, were once more in conjunction. Take your time to think about last mid-January and to ask yourself what goals you may have set then in the arena of relationships and finances because these goals will seem to culminate and pay off now, though perhaps not in the exact way you may have expected.
On a positive note, the full moon axis forms favourable aspects (trines and sextiles) with Pluto and Chiron. On the one hand, Pluto intensifies the importance of the deep changes that we can consolidate during the full moon, while on the other hand, Chiron helps us to heal any wounds caused during the previous eclipse. If you accept that there are many things that are beyond your control (Chiron in Pisces), then you will be given opportunities (sextiles) to radically change your potential need for things to always remain the same (Pluto trine Moon in Taurus). Moreover, if you take methodical initiatives to purge your life from anything rotten (Mars in Capricorn conjunct Pluto) you will get additional opportunities (sextile) to accept the importance of the changes and transformations that have already been put into place on an emotional and financial level (Chiron trine Sun-Venus in Scorpio).
On the negative side of this full moon we count the squares that the full moon axis receives by Jupiter; these may bring tension due to excess. This can materialize as both significant financial squander (Jupiter square Sun-Venus) and emotional or eating bouts (Jupiter-Moon square). Caution is thus needed when it comes to the management of your money and emotions as well as to potential tendencies for gluttony! In any case, I hope you enjoy this full moon because, if anything, it does favour taking delight in material pleasures and physical sensations!
