Full Moon 24 October 2018 ~ Sweet Chastity

The full moon October 24, 2018, falls at 1º Taurus decan 1. The full moon October 2018 astrology shows the moon as part of a T-square with the Nodes. It falls on fixed star Mirach in the constellation Andromeda. During the full moon October 2018 family commitments will help keep us on the straight and narrow. Having the responsibility of dependents ensures that we keep on plowing ahead and thereby avoid tempting but useless distractions. This will keep the full moon abundance flowing rather than stagnating. Otherwise, we are tempted into immediate sensual pleasures rather than investing in the future.

This is a great time to look at real estate as the Taurus full Moon brings luck with family property. Storing money as bricks and mortar also means that there is less temptation to spend it on frivolous activities. Generally then, caring for children will have a stabilising effect at this time. The Moon is exalted in this decan of Taurus, which sounds good and mostly does promise material abundance. The only problem can be if things come too easily we can be prone to complacency. In that case, the devil makes work for idle hands and the indulgent and decadent tendencies could start to kick in.

Full Moon October 2018 ~ Fixed Star Mirach

Full Moon October starGenerally, Mirach is found in the girdle of Andromeda. It is an extremely fortunate star “portending renown and good luck in matrimony.” [1] Andromeda had pay for her mother Cassiopeia’s boastful tongue by being chained to a rock as a sacrifice. This was to appease Neptune offense at Cassiopeia’s claim her daughter was more beautiful than any of Neptune’s sea nymphs. It all ends well as Andromeda is rescued by brave Perseus whom she marries. This is probably why there is fortune here, due to Andromeda’s lucky escape and the fact she bags a courageous, alpha-male husband.

Robson echoes the myth saying Mirach “gives personal beauty, a brilliant mind, a love of home, great devotion, beneficence, forgiveness, love, overcoming by kindness, renown, and good fortune in marriage.” The Ebertins emphasize a creative side saying Mirach endows “Many interests, a tendency to inspiration and medium-ship as a base for artistic creations, altruism, cheerfulness, happiness, love of company. These people have a stimulating effect on others, they make friends easily and are helped on in life by others.” [3]

Mirach with the Moon “Trouble with opposite sex owing to indiscretions, bad for domestic affairs, honour through martial matters.” [2]

In my research, I certainly found some indications of Moon/Mirach’s ‘sexual indiscretions’. The following natives all had Moon in Taurus decan 1. Hugh Grant was caught having oral sex with prostitute Divine Brown in a public place, Annie Sprinkle made a career out of it, Prince Charles was ridiculed over ‘Tampon-gate’ with Camila, and Monica Lewinsky, need I say more… Belt up Andromeda’s chastity girdle I say!

The tarot card associated with this decan is the 5 of pentacles. Karmically this card means that you may have had many lives addressing poverty and possibly greed. “The Five of Pentacles can be an indication that deep spiritual change is needed and an understanding that money is not everything and, most certainly, not a guarantee of happiness. Instead of being physically hungry, the hunger may be more on an emotional or spiritual level.  You need to evaluate your life to see where the true feeling of deprivation is coming from. You may need to take a look around you, and certainly further than your front door, to understand what true poverty means.” ~ teachmetarot

Both the Moon and Uranus are fluctuating and changeable, so emotions often change in a flash. Uranus stands for the truth and revelation, so those touched by this full moon could risk exile by speaking truth that the many find hard to accept.

  1. Dear Marina,
    Thank you for this excellent and thought-provoking post. Loved the video as well! (And the beautiful Waterhouse painting – never seem that one before.) One question: do you think that the conjunction of Uranus to this Full Moon bodes well for constructive progress with getting a truly liberating Brexit deal? Seems the Remainers are hoping to kick the can until it never happens…
    Love, light and blessings!

    1. Thanks Angelflower. I would hope Uranus would help Brexit along since it is the divorce planet. I hope we don’t have to wait until Uranus reaches 11º Taurus which is the UK’s chart’s Mars which also rules its 7th house of ‘Others’ and open enemies.That won’t be until May 2021! But hey, we have waited 2 years already… 🙁

  2. I’m curious how this full moon affects my natal moon at 0 degrees of Taurus? With my ascendant at 3 degrees Scorpio. Any advise where i can get good info?
