Full Moon November 14 2016 at 22º Taurus Decan 3 Aspects: Opposite Lilith & Semi-Sextile Ceres/Uranus/Eris. Fixed Stars: Zaurak In Eridanus & Capulus in Perseus.
The Full Moon in Taurus 3. Usually the moon is exalted in Taurus, but it is not such a guarantee in this decan, as Saturn’s influence often means there are great obstacles to surmount on life’s testing path. However Moon Taurus 3 does not totally prevent success. At this Full Moon any fame will come with a certain amount of notoriety. The Moon is susceptible to the melancholia of its Saturn rulership.
This period is good for those who can make a career out of doom and gloom. Others could find the pain that comes with such a sensitive moon intolerable. The temptation to self-medicate with drugs (Especially alcohol) can be high at this time and depression a problem too. There is a tendency to self destruction and those touched by this moon might feel their lives are fated, even cursed for the next two weeks.
However at the end of this period you might realise that if fate hasn’t killed you then it has actually made you stronger! Life gets better the Moon wanes, and by the New Moon you will feel much less victimised and become quite fearless. Generally the Moon in Taurus 3 breeds those who are life’s troopers! Bruised and sometimes battered, they get back up to proudly show off their battle scars. Around this full Moon there can be night terrors, dreams will be extremely vivid and can sometimes be prophetic. On the positive side dreams can also be uplifting and inspiring. A ritual to banish phobias and paranoia would be good at this time.
Full Moon November ~ Fixed Stars Zaurak & Capulus
Zaurak is a star found in the Eridanus the river. It means in Arabic “The bright star of the boat”. Zaurak “has a Saturnian character. Anyone who has this star connected with a planet in his chart should endeavour not to take life too seriously and put too much weight on everything people say. This person should struggle to overcome melancholy. Otherwise, this star could trigger off fear of death and suicidal tendencies.”
There are two famous stars in constellation Perseus here. Capulus is the star in the slaying arm of Perseus. Bernadette Brady says this star is extreme, male sexual energy, It could be seen as the male Lilith, a match for Lilith’s wild libido. The sword is very phallic, so this is male Kundalini energy in the shape of then divine Masculine. Capulus has a similar heroic energy of Aldebaran the white knight or Orion the hunter. But with Capulus the energy is wilder and raw, an A+ Alpha male. It is driven by sexual desire to free Andromeda from the changes placed on her by her father.(Or authoritarianism )
Full Moon November 2016 ~ Aspects
Both true and mean Black Moon Lilith are opposite this Full Moon. The Lunar Perigee (When the Moon is closest to the earth) places true Black Moon Lilith opposite the Moon. The point of Priapus (found opposite true Lilith.) is then conjunct the Moon. Priapus is supposed to signify what one does in order to fit into society, where you conform to the norms. If the Moon controls our habits (See Are We Moon Food? article.) and ancestral traits, then we are most likely to go down the line of least resistance. We will be reactive in our daily lives when the Moon is closer (as the Perigee/Priapus) and has more influence on us. So we must bear this in mind when we look at the interpretations of Lilith below.
