Full Moon in Taurus
November 12, 2019
We have been warped, twisted, investigated, wrecked, torched, drowned, and healed. We have wept, smirked, giggled, and been astounded by all the variations with the eclipses, retrograde, extraordinary moons, and lunar energies. Thus, the Full moon in Taurus should be no surprise and there will be a jolt of frigid energy.
As I write this blog, it seems that everything is exactly as what I had predicted. I just heard of the impeachment vote from the house and the next step is the process. “This will be one of the most intense months when it comes to political fronts… Perhaps we will be looking at the controversies and conflicts play out. I would not be surprised if there needs to be a recount as this election is right in the heart of Mercury retrograde.”- Read more about it here.
I consider this full moon in Taurus on November 12, 2019 a true autumn full moon. The moon will grace our skies with luminous delight at approximately, 7:48am EST, 10:48pm PST. I have continued to remind that every moon has been a replication of the same degree and date as the one in 2000 and with so many parallels I can only anticipate some sort of revolution. However, there seems to be an underlining cause of this degree; if you are keeping a journal as I recommend everyone to do, there is one more similarity. Whatever you may have started in May of 2013 is now complete and it’s time to move on to the next chapter. But don’t be surprised if you are to revise the same plans in 2043.
The Beaver Corn moon being the first full moon in November symbolizes trapping, preparing, and storing supplies for the winter. It been predicted that this will be one of those sporadic winters. I predict the winter in Northeast to be torture, wet and soggy for the South, and the West may be dry which could lead to more fires. But like no other it will be a wild winter with cold days immediately followed by warm ones; nothing will be settled. What saddens me the most is the melting of the polar ice. One of these days perhaps we can be more tuned in to climate change.
With all the intense energy it’s no wonder that VPAT (Vedic Philosophical Ayurvedic Theories) considers this moon not in Taurus but rather, Aries. The fiery moon brings forth aggression when there are restrictions thus causing assertive behavior which is never thought through. Often, it can lead to power struggles as people want total control. Disregarding anyone that is not of their stature and the smallest issues can become the drama of a lifetime due to an arrogant harsh nature without self-accountability. Thus, not only will the full moon effect the nature of our character but it will also affect our entire environment.
The climate change is not the only thing we should be considering, as Mercury is still retrograding even though there will be plenty of feedback to say otherwise. Most retrogrades only last for 3 weeks according to western astrologers; nonetheless, according to VPAT Mercury is a slow-moving planet, not as slow as Saturn but slow enough to understand that planets take their sweet time moving through the solar system.
Transition through Mercury Juncture will not be as bad. “As we move the clocks back one hour to adjust to the daylight savings time, the intensity will lessen with time. This will set the stage for Mercury Retrograde Juncture November 5 through November 16, 2019. In the middle of it all we will have a full moon in Taurus, thus a double whammy for fixed signs but not necessarily in a bad way though.”– read more here. Therefore, we should be clear to make decisions, travel, and wrap up relationship issues on or around December 7, 2019. It may seem long but it’s not far away at all.
Just consider that within 2 weeks of this Full moon will be Thanksgiving in the U.S and within another 4 weeks’ time it will be Christmas week. Then we will open the Christmas season with a bang! The Solar Eclipse in Capricorn on Christmas day. Consequently, I recommend you enjoy this break before the universe wakes you up again.
According to VPAT, Venus is comfortably sitting in Scorpio until November 20, 2019. A craving for profound and avid relationships with others is an absolute. On the other hand, it will be more serious in terms relationships, where playing and flirting will no longer be pleasurable. A deep warm attachment through every connection of our body, mind, and soul is the Scorpio energy as it is as the character of a Scorpio. Anything superficial won’t do. On the other hand, Mars will enter Libra the day before this full moon, and Libra always wants things to be loving and fair.
Furthermore, with Jupiter finally leaving Scorpio and moving directly into Sagittarius, legal issues, education, and truth will be displayed in our world. Along with Ketu and Rahu, past issues and karma will be playing a big role in Gemini and Sagittarius lives. It’s no wonder that some Sagittarius’ may be all over the place. With Jupiter, Saturn, and Rahu all in Sagittarius, they are learning very difficult lessons with plenty in return.
Everything becomes brighter under the grace of the Full Moon – fresh starts and blessings are also amplified during the full moon. As auspicious as the bright light of the full moon, so are the blessings that are bestowed upon us (read more about it here).
Bleeding is more likely during a Full Moon, so take care. This is the time to gather, pray, and be appreciative, and to effort on sensibleness and triumph. During a full moon people can often become tremendously detached, clear minded, and aware of their own wants while wondering how to satisfy the wishes of others.
This moon is quite exclusive. We are obliged to delay our own desire to allow our passion to change through nurturing and gentleness toward others. This individual progress has emitted a lot of anguish and difficulties which, in fact, has allowed us to share our educated understandings with others – this also helps us to recognize ourselves.
As the world continues to revolve and we deepen our understanding of ourselves and others around us. We must recognize what past events are teaching us. The similarities of this moon at this degree which I had stated earlier, fell on the same exact day and degree as 2000. Additionally, we are closing a chapter to events that may have occurred in May of 2013.
Almost everything in this world makes a full circle, events will also. As election issues were in question in November 2000 so will similar issues in 2019. This time they involve President Trump and Biden, in 2000 it was Bush and Gore. Tobacco companies were sued in Europe and the States; could it be that this time the big vaping companies face the same fate? Miranda rights were questioned in regards “custodial interrogation”. Can this once again be up for discussion in 2019? Extreme drought in the western united states caused over 9 million acres of land to be burned which resulted in 3 billion dollars of property damage. As of the first day of this November the damage has already surpassed this amount. These things are the call of the universe asking what could we do differently?
Since this moon is parallel to the new moon in 2013, there is a possibility of something which ended suddenly beginning again. Consider that cyber theft, pharmaceutical companies, bombings, tornadoes, and banking issues were in the news, even the IRS was under scrutiny. Could it be that the same issues arise again? I would not be surprised if they do.
I believe we could discover more hacking of large corporations where identity theft will be an issue. The continued talks over gay marriage could also be in the news. Additionally, I am sure we are all aware of the 2013 Boston Marathon bombing. What I fear is this was bad timing for the killing of the ISIS leader, but I am not a politician nor can I judge. All I must say is that we all need to be vigilant about everything around us, including the weather. Tornado outbreaks in Midwest and drought in the West could be our biggest setback. The saddest moments could be the ongoing onslaught of issues in Turkey and Syria.
Furthermore, I would not be surprised if the following countries make headline news in the next thirty days: Cuba, Cyprus, England, Germany, Ireland, Israel, Palestine, South Africa, Syria, Tanzania, and Zimbabwe. On a smaller scale, the U.S cities that could be impacted would be Birmingham, AL and St. Louis, MO.
The moon in Taurus could give us the oomph to communicate more than usual. But most reliability is driven by steadiness and the comfort of that which often gives us a sense of security. Philanthropic efforts will create a great sense of wholeness for many people and socialization is not out of the question. Nonetheless, Mercury retrograde could put a damper on the ongoing communications we need (read more here).
After the retrograde is completely over, relationships could become smoother because steadiness brings a natural expression of emotions through love and understanding. These are great positives during the full moon but be careful – obstinacy can cause differences and possible break-ups. The focus of struggle can be around inflexibility and failure to stay consistent.
The Moon in Taurus pushes for a time of vigilance and levelheadedness. People may feel more old-fashioned and stronger minded.
This is a good time to finish household tasks that have been overdue as people may be more reliable and prepared. Like the stubborn Bull, representative of Taurus, people may be bull-headed; unsure in negotiation and argumentative. Care needs to be taken to avoid pleasure-seeking and changeable worries or desires for material wealth.
This full moon I will be highlighting Taurus and Aries as they are the most influenced by the moon. The information emphasized is predominately calculated through VPAT (Vedic Philosophical Ayurvedic Theories) not to be confused with Western or Eastern Astrology. The distinguishing is principally based upon metaphysical opportunities according to cosmic features.

Also, it may be advisable to view the last solar, lunar, and Mercury retrograde to get an overall picture. Please note the predispositions are valued until the end of the year but primarily only through December 15, 2019.
Dear Taurus, you should be aware that you are continually changing as your structures collapse and reform. It is very difficult for you to go through changes as a fixed sign. Along with your brothers and sisters it is much easier working with what you are familiar rather than with things that are different, especially habits and materialistic things. Even though the remainder of your year will consist of financial growth, be aware to make profit you must invest or spend to expand. Be careful not invest or do too much with stocks and bonds and make sure you know everything that needs to be considered before you do. I would also not be surprised if you decide during the remainder of this year to invest in a new electronic contraption or even a vehicle. On the other hand, be careful not to become too emotional in areas of interpersonal relationships as it’s better to have open and transparent communication than to assume or disrespect based upon your insecurities. It’s better to be easygoing and take things slow than to jump into situations and get a broken heart. It is time to put your body, mind, and soul into synchronicity. Exercise for your body, seek a professional for matters of the mind, but most of all, yoga and eastern exercises to calm your inner self will be a good bonus for you.
Saturn: (Direct Oct 21-2019 through 2020): Now that Saturn is direct in Sagittarius you may find this time to be difficult for you, especially when it comes to family and finances. Pay more attention to all family members. Make sure your i’s are dotted and t’s are crossed at your place of business as whatever that you do will be under scrutiny. To maintain your positive character, you must work hard and maintain the utmost respect.
Ketu: Since March 2019, there has been no change in the aspect of Ketu and it will remain there until September 23, 2020. Please refer to the new moon scope during May 2019 to examine more current possibilities (here).
Rahu: This transit will remain the same until 2020. Be cautious of being too direct towards people which will cause discomfort and possible hostility in areas of work and family. There could also be health related issues regarding all aspects of the face. Relax when driving and avoid unnecessary spending.
Uranus: Now that Uranus is back into your sign, Dear Taurus, remember that this is not only a radical change for you but the entire world until 2025. At the end of the day you will be completely different. Not only will your personality change, so too will the way you look, your health, and how you express yourself to people. There is going to be a tendency to hold on to things and overspending. De-clutter your life physically, mentally, and emotionally; remember that material things collect dust and emotional things collect baggage.
Jupiter: Now that Jupiter is back in Sagittarius until the spring of 2020, you may see life as a roller coaster. Health issues, restlessness, travel delays, financial worries, and having to work extra hard could cause problems with your health. But taking a spiritual role and bringing inner peace through eastern outlets such as yoga or meditation will be helpful to keep you in focus.
Since the moon in Taurus represents Calm, Real, Mature, Merciful, and Tenacious, we must use the real senses. Remember this is a very strong moon, therefore, know that if your sun or moon sign is not a Taurus or Aries this does not mean that you will not be affected. Rather, if there is Taurus/Aries anywhere in your natal or progressed chart you will be directly obstructed by this energy. The Moon transiting Taurus gives us a diverse range of feelings. Moon in Taurus is driven towards contentment, resolve, carefulness, and preservation.
This is a good time to take a vacation or to schedule a lazy day of letup. It’s a time to get into your corporeal wits and to enjoy the physical world around you through your senses. It is also a good time for environmental or conservation efforts. The theme seems to be reliability and holding fast. This is the time to clean out closets and drawers. You will frustrate yourself and stop your projects because you’ll want to keep everything, and you may hoard.
Remember that with all applications of psalms and mantras, achieving the desired result is dependent upon the quality of intention. This year I am making things a little simpler as there is one mantra which is easy to pronounce for those that are learning and another for those that are fluent. This will give everyone an opportunity to perfect the pronunciations.
The mantras for Taurus moon are:
Om Hreeng Kleeng Shreeng
(uum Hriing Kliing Shriing)
Om Mahadevyai Cha Vidmahe Vishnu Patnayai Cha Dheemahi, Tanno Lakshmih Prachodyaat
Please remember, I am not an astrologer, nor do I claim to be. However, the astrological translation is a vital purpose required to assimilating the best results in Vedic Sanskrit readings. Vedic readings are based upon Indian sages who use the planetary provocations to be more informative and aid mankind through ethics and consideration of karmas.
It is through Vedic Sanskrit readings that we can integrate how our movements are the source of our responses which lead to struggles which can be effortlessly avoided through caring and normalizing our egos.
