Did you get a chance to look at the sky last night? The moon is so big and beautiful and just shy of being completely full! Monday, November 11th is best viewing night to see the full moon- but it will officially be full at 8:34am on Tuesday morning. The energy will continue to build until then.
This moon is known as the Full Beaver Moon- due to this being the time of year when the beaver are most active in preparation for winter. It was also when Native American Indians would hunt beaver for their fur. So if you were hunter- these bright nights were the best nights for hunting.
The full moon energy this month is very powerful! We are in Scorpio season, and that means the energy for the past few weeks has had an edginess too it it, causing us to look more intently, to go deeper, and to really consider what is working in our lives and what is not. Scorpio energy has an intensity that is palpable.
Scorpio is a fixed sign, meaning that of all the water signs it is the one that is the leader, and has the strength and follow through to see things to completion. The fixed sign stands it’s ground and can be stubborn when necessary to get the job done. Scorpio carries an intensity and focus that is unmatched! You can feel it. When a Scorpio sets their sights on a mate- look out! Their sexual energy, charm, and universal appeal make them a force to be reckoned with!
This full moon is in the sign of Taurus- which is also the fixed sign among the earth signs. Taurus is the bull- leading the herd, standing strong, and holding everything together. Like a rock, Taurus holds space and only moves in a slow and measured way. Taurus is also the sensualist- loving to be snuggled up in front of the fireplace with a warm drink and tasty food with their sweetie. Taurus likes the comforts of home and loves to explore sensual pleasures- good smells, tastes, and touch. The Taurus’s home is their castle.
Water (Scorpio) and Earth (Taurus) are very compatible. When you put them together they grow things…and that is what these two are doing this month. They give us the powerful boost we need to see what we need to do, and to hold steady until we can get it done. You can depend on their strength this month.
Scorpio is complex and Taurus likes to keep things simple. The moon embodies our emotional state and so this full moon is telling us that even though our goals may seem complex or hard to reach- it’s really simple…slow and steady work will win the race! All this fixed energy will allow us to stay on task and really make progress toward our goals, whether they are physical to-do list items or more internal feelings about where we want to go. Taurus and Scorpio can make it happen! And Taurus tells us that we can take it slow as long as we keep moving. Scorpio has the focus to see it through!
And on a more personal level, the charmer and the sensualist can make for a steamy few days if you are part of a couple or in a relationship. This is definitely a time to reconnect with your sweetheart!
During this full moon (and all full moons) it is the planetary time to manifest any intentions or plans that we have brewing. Two weeks ago was the new moon- the time to set intentions. And during the full moon we can act on those intentions with positive results! Full moons bring waves of manifesting energy so you may feel as though you just have to do something. It may be an unsettled feeling or a slight irritation to act. Don’t be afraid of this, in fact you should lean into this feeling.
Taurus and Scorpio together are saying to just go for it! You can’t go wrong when two fixed signs in compatible elements have your back! This is a powerful time for results and success. The full moon energy this month says you CAN make your dreams a reality! The universe says so. Just go for it! 😊
