The October 27th Full Moon in Taurus features a hard inconjunct to Saturn in Sagittarius. Culminations/endings involving financial or emotional security will feel somewhat defined, or undercut, by external limits. The biggest gain could come with a lingering sense of dissatisfaction, or pressure.
On the same day, Venus in Virgo opposes Chiron (Wounded Healer) in Pisces, while making a hard inconjunct to Uranus Rx in Aries. Relationship, self-esteem or financial issues will spotlight what’s wrong, what’s missing, or what could go wrong.
So far, this all sounds discouraging. And if Virgo’s fixation on certain details is indulged, it could remain discouraging. But if you take one step back, you’ll see that Venus is coming off some fabulous aspects to Jupiter and Pluto, and she’s heading for a conjunction with Mars. As the ruler of Taurus, she’ll have a say in this Full Moon. Will everything be perfect? No. Will there be more to work with than usual? Yes. Look beyond the flaws that you’re compulsively picking at, and remind yourself that you’ve got more to offer, and others want it.
The Full Moon hits your sector of personal resources. Achievements involving financial or emotional security may feel forced or inadequate. You could look at what you’ve saved, or gained, and feel like haven’t received your fair share. Too, financial negotiations can feel pressured.
Tense aspects to Venus in your sector of health and routine suggest the difficulties may involve flaws (actual or perceived) in the details of your work, or how you relate to co-workers. Health issues, or feeling unappreciated for what you’ve been doing, could also amplify the sense of dissatisfaction. Know that Venus’ aspects to Pluto/Jupiter, and her upcoming conjunction with Mars, are presenting you with solutions. Work with what you know, and make the best of your current situation by cleaning up the small tasks and pouring your energy into your daily performance.
- Culmination: earned money, sources of income, values, self-esteem, security
- Solutions to dissatisfaction: do the necessary tasks, focus on self-improvement, take care of your immediate environment, clean up the details, attend to tensions with co-workers
The Full Moon in your sign can crank up the pressure, whether you achieve something desirable, or are compelled to let something go. A relationship, career or personal goal may be reached or missed, and you’ll be reminded of ongoing relationship or financial tensions. What you get may be limited by what you owe, or someone else’s boundaries.
Tense aspects to Venus in your sector of self-expression can increase your desire, while emphasizing the contrast to what you’re missing. Too, you could feel embarrassed/exposed. You may discover that someone or something you reached for wasn’t meant for you. But Venus’ aspects to Pluto/Jupiter, and her upcoming conjunction with Mars, should be reassuring. There may be another (better) opportunity, or you may find that what unfolded during the Full Moon has more potential than you thought. New romance, pregnancy/children or creative work are hi-lighted.
- Culmination: physical appearance, identity, relationships, career, personal goals
- Solutions to dissatisfaction: amplify what you’re good at/what you’ve already created, look more closely at the details around what you really want: will some fine-tuning help?
The Full Moon in your hidden sector can illuminate a secret/background issue, while hi-lighting a disconnect between you and a partner (romantic or business). Other people’s rules can trigger personal dissatisfaction that leads to deeper awareness.
Tense aspects to Venus in your domestic sector suggest that personal and professional issues will mix, as trouble spots at work push you to make changes at home. A relocation, home business, or issues with family can be driven by larger disappointments, to the extent that nothing in your personal or professional life feels 100% correct. Venus’ Jupiter/Pluto aspects, and her upcoming union with Mars, are a reminder that you actually have tons to work with in your domestic life. You can call the shots and direct the course of events (on a personal level) if you focus on the direction you want to move in. Home improvements, repairing a relationship, or maximizing a personal project are encouraged.
- Culmination: hidden/unacknowledged issues, unspoken concerns, gossip, intuition
- Solutions to dissatisfaction: expand your home base, identify areas of improvement in a home business/family situation
The Full Moon in your social sector can pinpoint a friendship, public relationship or public image issue. Reputation can be solidified, or you may discover the limits of how much impact you have. Dissatisfaction with a friendship/relationship to the public can be based on the sense that you can never do enough.
Tense aspects to Venus in your communication sector can deliver messages that hit a sore spot, or make conversations touchy and volatile. You may try to say it/write it perfectly, but you won’t be able to make everyone happy. Venus’ Jupiter/Pluto aspects, and her impending conjunction to Mars, insist that you have power behind your words. The key is to stick with what’s honest, factual and precise. Then say it/write it; now is not the time to hold back. Negotiations are still favoured, despite other tensions. Sibling relationships can also feature tense moments, but overall there’s room for growth and improvement.
- Culmination: friends, groups, the public, public image, group activities, public launch
- Solutions to dissatisfaction: get your facts straight, stick with what you know, stand by your ideas, read the fine print, speak up
The Full Moon in your career sector can signal a career transition (new job, end of job) or the end of a work project. Too, you could receive a reward for professional achievements, but what you receive (or lose) can leave you with an empty feeling. If there’s a lack of recognition, consider if what you wanted was realistic.
Tense aspects to Venus in your sector of personal resources connect the Full Moon scenario to money or emotional satisfaction (or lack of). Even as you strive for more, you could become aware that there’s something even bigger/better out there. Why aren’t you getting paid what you’re worth, or loved the way you deserve to be loved? If you’re asking these questions, it’s time to consider Venus’ aspects to Pluto/Jupiter, and upcoming conjunction to Mars. You do have opportunities to gain more/earn more, and increase your security. Rather than focusing on external sources, consider what you can build within yourself. Too, if you’re not attracting what you’d like, this is a good time to refine your technique.
- Culmination: career, professional image, relationships with authority, future goals
- Solutions to dissatisfaction: refine your techniques/strategies to attract what you feel you want, consider the details of what you actually have, look closely at spending/saving habits
The Full Moon in your sector of opportunities suggests the finalization of a contract, long-term plans (travel) an announcement or certification. Too, this could mark the end of certain long-range goals, or the conclusion of a legal matter. No matter how this plays out, you may feel that it didn’t go as far as the initial potential suggested. Or, domestic responsibilities/rules could pressure you to launch something before you feel ready.
Tense aspects to Venus in your sign can stir up insecurities, both emotional and financial. Are you ready for the next step? Will you ever be ready? Do you have what it takes? What if everyone sees the glaring error that you somehow missed? What if you lose everything? This is when you remind yourself that you will probably never feel 100% ready, but with Venus’ superb aspects to Jupiter/Pluto, and her upcoming conjunction with Mars in your sign, you’re as close to “perfect” as you’ll ever be. You absolutely have what it takes, and more, as Venus amplifies your powers of attraction. Just do what you do best.
- Culmination: long-distance matters, education, publishing, legal matters, exposing yourself to a wider audience
- Solutions to dissatisfaction: put yourself out there anyway, launch that new idea, make your words/project/desires public
The Full Moon in your sector of shared resources can bring a financial or relationship matter to a tipping point. Feeling denied, pressured to give more, or being aware that you don’t have enough, are possibilities. Intimacy between you and another may come with conditions, and financial news could clarify what you or your partner owe.
Tense aspects to Venus in your hidden sector can also pinpoint a secret matter that’s behind the tension of this Full Moon. Relationship or financial issues that have been overlooked, or simmering beneath the surface, can be revealed. Fortunately, Venus’ aspects to Jupiter/Pluto, and her strengthening union with Mars, suggest that you’ve got more in reserve. There may be assistance that you weren’t aware of, or your own, personal Ace in the hole. The events that are unfolding are actually pushing you in the right direction, although this may not become clear until November 8th (when Venus enters your sign). In the meantime, allow things to play out .
- Culmination: debts, taxes, loans, your partner’s finances, physical/emotional intimacy
- Solutions to dissatisfaction: focus on background developments, nurture your personal potentials, accept background help, keep something in reserve, don’t fight the flow of events, wait for the next chapter
The Full Moon in your partnership sector suggests a relationship turning point (business or romantic). Whether you’re moving forward together or apart, finances, values or the need for emotional self-sufficiency will play a role. The next chapter could initially make you feel unsupported. Or, you may question if what’s happening is really what you want.
Tense aspects to Venus in your social sector hi-light public areas where you feel underprepared, or where you’re dissatisfied with your image. Who you are in relation to others (on a one on one and public level) is being transformed. However, Venus’ aspects to Pluto/Jupiter and upcoming union with Mars insist that you are still in a growth and expansion phase. Even if something shuts down, you’re just trimming away the deadwood to leave room for new growth. There are new opportunities (romantic or business) for you out there, and you could find plenty of assistance from others.
- Culmination: partnerships
- Solutions to dissatisfaction: explore new public options, get out and circulate, make new connections, refine strategic relationships, focus on those who want to see you move forward
The Full Moon in your sector of routine can bring a work or health issue to a head. The tense aspect to Saturn (in your sign) suggests pressure to complete something, or push yourself/give more of yourself. Obligations may weigh heavily.
Tense aspects to Venus in your career sector can see you questioning your entire future path. Dissatisfaction in a current job may peak, and relationships with those in authority can be especially tricky. Watch for sudden confrontations that leave you feeling exposed. Venus’ hopeful aspects to Jupiter/Pluto, and her upcoming conjunction with Mars, say that the current pressure is designed to squeeze you in the right direction. A course correction may be needed, so check out new career options, or explore ways to adjust your current professional image. You’ve got so much power on your side, and your professional status is ripe for positive attention. You just have to make a few tweaks. Too, you could encounter someone at work/connected to your future path, who could help you out immensely.
- Culmination: work tasks, health, service to others, co-worker relationships, problems/solutions
- Solutions to dissatisfaction: polish your professional image, explore new career ideas, cultivate professional relationships, promote yourself/your talents
The Full Moon in your sector of self-expression can bring a personal goal to fruition. Something that you’ve been hoping for, or trying to create, could manifest, but there may be a niggling sense of dissatisfaction. You may wonder “Is this it?” or “Will this work out?” Too, the denial of something you were hoping for could be part of a larger ending in your life.
Tense aspects to Venus in your sector of opportunities can make new or future developments feel a bit doubtful, or leave you feeling vulnerable as you put yourself out there. Remember that Venus’ conjunction to Jupiter, her trine to Pluto (in your sign) and her upcoming union with Mars can help you sort out the details of a larger, long-term development, or make favourable completions to one piece of the puzzle. This can mark the first step on your big journey, involving travel, long-distance romance, legal matters, publishing or education.
- Culmination: new romance, creative work, children/pregnancy
- Solutions to dissatisfaction: focus on the current portion of your journey, refine the details rather than trying to work with the big picture, take baby steps, celebrate your immediate accomplishment
The Full Moon in your domestic sector suggests a turning point at home/with family, that may be partially defined by external or public rules. A relocation, career or domestic development may feel restricted by where you can’t, or won’t go. Too, public opinion could be an annoying factor that you have to consider.
Tense aspects to Venus in your sector of shared resources can pinpoint doubts or uncomfortable discoveries involving debts, taxes, your partner’s finances, or physical/emotional intimacy. But overall, Venus’ Jupiter/Pluto support, and her strengthening union with Mars, indicates you can still attract lucrative financial or emotional opportunities. You are definitely not limited to one, unhappy scenario. Financial assistance, a better deal, or passionate encounters are still on the menu.
- Culmination: home, family, relocation, career, home business
- Solutions to dissatisfaction: leave yourself open to existing (or possible new) options, research other opportunities, pursue new sources of emotional or financial security
The Full Moon in your communication sector can present a final message or piece of information. This Moon can trigger scenarios that help you come to a decision, but you may feel some pressure from official rules or those in authority. The final outcome may not feel completely within your control. An issue with siblings can also reach a turning point that is partly defined by official rules.
Tense aspects to Venus in your partnership sector can stir up relationship sensitivities/anxieties. No matter which direction a relationship is going, the opposition to Chiron Rx in your sign can remind you that there’s something to lose. There’s always something to lose when you put your heart on the line, because nothing is guaranteed. But Venus’ aspects to Jupiter/Pluto, and her upcoming union with Mars, suggest that a new or existing partnership has more potential than usual. Even if events seem to be unfolding in an unpleasant direction, know that you can attract significant attention, or launch yourself in a positive direction.
- Culmination: conversations, document signing, sibling relationships, announcements, making a choice
- Solutions to dissatisfaction: stay conscious of who/what you attract, focus on people/situations that are best for you
