There’s a Full Moon sneaking up on you. It will happen in Taurus (opposing the Scorpio Sun) on Monday shortly before 9 am EDT (13:51:59 UTC). There is no intention here to imply you are not aware of a Full Moon occurring in less than three days. The purpose here is to raise your consciousness just a bit further.
A Full Moon in Taurus is not just any Full Moon. The Moon (and everything it represents) is what astrologers call ‘exalted’ in Taurus. Exalted is another way of saying ‘strongly expressed’.
If you want an example of how an object in exaltation can correlate with earthly events, you don’t have to look very far back. Mars entered its Capricorn exaltation on Sept. 27, and moved on to Aquarius just as results of the 2016 presidential election in the U.S. were becoming undeniably clear. That was not exactly what one would call an uneventful period.
The Moon and Mars have a lot in common. Both represent qualities essential to sustain life, juxtaposed with characteristics that are hazardous to life. There are also important differences. Perhaps foremost among those differences is that the Moon moves around the zodiac much faster. Compare more than two months spent by Mars in Capricorn to the two days (basically, Sunday and Monday) the Moon will spend in Taurus to initiate next week.
Much like a candidate in the closing days of a political campaign, the Moon tends to pack a lot of activity into a short period of time. Combine rapid and eventful travel with a build-up to the emblematic culmination of a Full Moon — in a sign that amplifies all things lunar — and the implication is a lot of momentum. Hence a good reason for you to raise your awareness as much as possible now.
Momentum itself has an upside and a downside. If you are on top of things, you can get a lot of things done quickly. If things are on top of you, it’s possible to be caught up and swept away quickly by corresponding events.
Obviously, it’s better to have the upper hand when it comes to momentum. In order for you to be on the bright side of Monday’s Full Moon, consider a handful of guidelines. First, have a plan. Sunday and Monday will almost certainly not favor the aimless. Next, do something. No matter how mundane, any actions taken during the first two days of next week will likely yield productive results.
It will also help if the actions you plan to take are chosen with emotional gratification in mind. Picture yourself on Tuesday as being satisfied with what you did on Sunday and Monday, and you will have an ideal to aim for. In addition, bring others along for the ride if at all possible. Many hands make less work. Also, as the legendary Chinese sage Lao Tsu is recorded to have observed, a collective effort creates collective bonds.
Finally, unless your planned action is going to be of the direct and political variety (which would be a good choice, by the way), take a break from current events. Get yourself firmly grounded in your own existence through whatever it is you consciously aim to accomplish on Sunday and Monday. There is more to the world than politics. If it is your choice to spend two days in a garden mulching the soil, or even two days in bed making love, you will be doing your part well by the Taurus Full Moon.
