    Analysis
    Overall this is an incredibly abundant and stable moon. This Full Moon is a very welcomed break from the last few stressful lunar cycles we've had in recent weeks. The Taurus Full Moon is generally about stabilizing or grounding out matters. Be that financially, or in terms of relationships, its usually a more so easy going lunation. This one is especially powerful, with nods to both Pluto as well as Saturn. Whenever these power hitters are involved, considerable structural changes are happening for a more significant cause; stability and transformation. This is also a sign of patience or being able to handle whatever comes your way. Expect a sense of maturity and more precise decision making. Pluto is the king of profound psychological alchemy. Events taking place around this moon in the end, are paving the way for much stronger, more so fertile future. 
     
    The build-up to this moon will start as early as November 8th, expect the Universe to deliver some subtle cosmic messages to give you clues. It's aspects to Neptune are now nearly exact, and will allow you to drop into intuitive states. This will enable you to be much better attuned to your and other people's feelings. You may notice you're much more sensitive than usual and may feel slightly empathic around certain people or places. Staying hydrated, soaking in a tub, or going to the beach is all highly recommended when dealing with some emotional challenges. When in doubt, use the element of water to help nurture your emotional body. Neptune is also in harmonious aspects to Saturn, suggesting there is a great deal of gain when you follow your spiritual pursuits. Meditation and dreamwork may prove to be very vivid. 
     
    Mars will still be in Libra, now forming a favorable sextile to Jupiter in Sagittarius. This can really be positive and joyous energy when used appropriately. It suggests there will be more room for optimism and also sexual relations. For some, it can be fun and flirty. This can be an excellent time to discuss travel plans in the future with a partner or team effort. On the other hand, it can, at times, lead to edginess and people being short-tempered. The one real challenge of this lunation is Mercury still on its retrograde path, trekking backward through the murky waters of Scorpio. When we see a Full Moon in opposition to Mercury, there's an indication of a difference of opinions or ideas. On the axis of Taurus and Scorpio, its about security and the need to survive. We may see conflicts, arguments, and at times miscommunications. This is not a moon for ultimatums. Watch, look, and listen. You're about to determine which path you're about to take. So much of this is about making peace with welcoming the new. 
     
    Per my last article in the November overview, I discussed this retrograde in length, and it's purpose. My advice; stay in your lane this Full Moon. This is a profoundly compelling and intense time. The more you're focused on bringing in something substantial, but not attached to any one particular source or person, the better. This is a manifesting moon, with the ability to bring you exactly what you need, the trick is being open-minded. Do your best not to make any significant decisions until the dust settles closer to the end of the month. As with all Full Moons, there are always intense situations that come to a head that show us exactly who or what needs to be completed. This may take a few days to a week or so to be fully realized. But keep in mind the writing WILL be on the wall from Nov. 8th- Nov. 15th. Meditate on being in a heart and mind space that facilitates your own security. Pot a house plant. Hug a tree. Stand with your feet in the grass. Put on a mud mask. Work with some clay. Ground it all out, baby. Ask the universe to send us exactly what we need, even if it's not exactly what we want at this very moment. There's something beautiful about being in that vulnerable space of acknowledging we need something new. It's then the magic happens.

    2. Take your candles, dressing only the green for abundance. Feel free to either carve your intentions into the wax or write them down on paper and fold the paper towards you. This can be kept near or under the candle to set the intention. 
    3. Dress the green candle with a few drops of almond oil for abundance. Then roll the candle towards you in the herbal mixture. Be sure any free-standing candles are on a fireproof ceramic plate, or in a holder.

    5. Meditate on the ground facing north with your two candles; White for purity and Green for abundance. Visualize what it is you want to bring into your life. Financial wealth, streaming from a positive source. Emotional or romantic abundance, and how stable and earthy it feels. Ideally, you want to meditate and visualize until you feel these things physically. When you're feeling complete with your meditation, you may light the candles. Let them burn all the way through. 
    6. When you're completed, be sure to close sacred space and thank your guides. Ideally, leave out the offerings for several days.

    Full Moon in Gemini: Slow Your Roll, December 11th/12th, 2019

    This is one of those Full Moons that has more to it than what meets the eye. As an astrologer, this is known as the "Cold Moon," and I'm really beginning to see why. When Gemini really gets to the depths of its core traits, it can be cold and calculating. Detached, and seeking only facts or information. But this isn't why I am connecting this to being a "Cold Moon." While Gemini's usual behavior is chatty and happy go lucky, the aspects between Pluto/ Saturn/ and Venus make this lunation extra, chilly. Venus is moving into a tight conjunction with Pluto in Capricorn.

    This month sure is action-packed. Expect this to be a Holiday season for the books my friends. The month begins with Jupiter making his annual move into to a new sign. Jupiter is the planet of abundance and optimism. Generally, Jupiter magnifies whatever it touches, and in Capricorn, it will be interesting. Generally speaking, Jupiter in Capricorn is considered to be in it’s "fall," or not necessarily at it's best. However, we're gearing up from December 2019- February 2020 to have a whole slew of planets in Capricorn.
