Full Moon in Taurus and the Fixed Cross
The moon is getting brighter by the second waxing toward the next Full Moon is on Novemer 2, 2009 @ 11:14 AM PDT or 2:14 PM EDT
The chart for this moment reflects an auspicious configuration called a Grand Cross. Even thought it is not exact with Mars @ 8 Leo still in orb of an opposition to Jupiter in Aquarius there is Grand Square. A grand square involves four signs, four planets, four houses and four areas of life that are connected together. Not only are there four squares in the Grand Cross, there are also two oppositions. A stubborn, resistant quality is pervasive with fixed signs as they drive forward...The Fixed signs are focused on multiple questions of self-worth and societies value. Tomorrow's lunation is directed for the individiual as to the ability to acknowledge the worth of the self and mastery (Taurus), creativity and spirit (Leo), vulnerability and trust (Scorpio), and humanity and brotherhood (Aquarius). The main purpose of the Fixed signs is to uphold and maintain the activity that the Cardinal signs created and initiated. Now with Saturn/Libra SQ Pluto/Capricorn we see the Scorpionic and Aquarian planets/asteroids championing the energies of justice/equilibrium (Saturn in Libra) in battle with power plays by the governemtn (Pluto/Capricorn).
So we have Mercury-Ceres (letting go)- Sun all opposing the Moon
Mars in theatrical Leo along with Hygeia (asteroid of health)and Vesta (focus/commmitment)
all opposing Jupiter-Chiron (both direct in Aquarius)with Neptune stationing direct on November 4th. Sun in passionate Scorpio is applying to this secretive square to Jupiter in the 12th so there will be attempts to influence major events behind the scens.
The moon will be at 10 degrees 30 minutes Taurus with this Sabian Symbol: "A woman sprinkling flowers."
The Sun's Sabian: "A drowning man rescued. "
This is an obvious metaphor for survival and when we look at the chart for DC above
we see those three Scorpio bodies in the 8th house putting a massive focus on debt, death and taxes.
A more advanced Sabian description for the Moon at 11 degrees Taurus found in the naturual 2nd house of values :
"A Dutch woman pulls weeds and plants seeds while her daughter employs a shiny tin watering can to water the flowers. "
Interpretations vary from nurturing the world and others as we would a flourishing garden. Also the theme of recognizing good and bad seeds is a metaphor for encouraging others gifts, talents and skills while discouraging the negative traits.
Today, the first day of the Día de los Muertos or All Souls' Day which can be traced back 2500–3000 years sacred to the indigenous Olmec, Zapotec, Mixtec, Mexican or Aztec, Maya, P'urhépecha, and Totonac. Astrologically Mercury-Sun-Ceres all in the sign of the shadow and underworld, Scorpio seems appropriate to a time of connecting to the souls of our ancestors and other discarnate beings. Most regions of Mexico chose November 1 to honor children and infants, whereas deceased adults are honored on November 2. This is indicated by generally referring to November 1 mainly as "Día de los Inocentes" (Day of the Innocents) but also as "Día de los Angelitos" (Day of the Little Angels) and November 2 as "Día de los Muertos" or "Día de los Difuntos" (Day of the Dead).
Unquestionably this Full Moon will have all the elements of death and rebirth along and Scorpionic traits. Even the Mayan Day sign is 3 - Men or Eagles (one of the symbolic archetypes of Scorpio representing an intermediary between heaven and earth. In the Tzolkein, the Eagle is an keenly intelligent, gifted messenger who can bring hope and trust from his compassionate nature...but he must beware not to slip into greedy, possessive or jealous behavior.
We can all feel the chameleon like energies of transformational shifts coming with accelerated speeds
as we approach the Taurus lunation.
So many shifts both planetary and economic are looming along with the Mayan Calendar
per Calleman -
The Final Mayan calendar steps to 2012:
November 8, 2009 – the beginning of the Sixth NIGHT
Calleman predicts the death of the dollar as we enter the sixth night
"My prediction of a further economic downturn was based on the observation that nights, at least in the second part of an evolutionary Wave Movement, usually mean at the very least a slowdown of economic growth."
The anticipation and tension has been building since the last Libra New Moon on October 17th. into the period of time around the October 25Th/26Th date as described by Cliff High
and the Web Bots as a turning point. In fact they said events would align closely with the 10/25 date, to mark the start of a building tensions period that will last for approximately 10 days till around Nov. 5th. (Neptune stations direct on Nov. 4th @ 10:10 AM signifying forces relating to the Swine Flu, spirituality, Then there will be a release period extending into December. Their Most of the casual followers of High and Ure were disappointed that some huge, dramatic Nostradamus style apocalyptic quake or nuclear war didn't prevail. I guess having Mars transiting in Leo, our expectations are a bit over the top.
From the purely financial and political side these events occurred:
Obama's National Swine Flu Emergency and Internet Restrictions on October 23rd/24th
Capmark Filing for Bankruptcy on October 25th.
ING bank announced split-up and the stock fell 8%
Iran's Oil Bourse Came Online on October 26th as the petrodollar changed perspective
Ending "Too Big To Fail" (TBTF)
On 10/27 & 10/28 financial news increased discussion/reporting on moves by various federal agencies/bodies to a) ensure financial firms bail each other out, and not sock it to the taxpayer (again), and b) reduce/eliminate the Federal Reserves' ability to unilaterally, and with no disclosure, pump unknown additional billions into favored financial firms.
Calleman like many financial pundits continues with "An indication of such an impending downturn at this upcoming night is for instance that there has been a rush for gold, which for the first time passed the magical limit of USD 1000/troy ounce. Moreover, an index of insider trading shows that people knowledgeable about the actual basis for valuing US stock tend to think of this as highly overvalued. Most importantly, increasingly higher voices are now raised in almost all corners of the world for the replacement of the petrodollar system and thus also of the use of the US dollar as the world’s reserve currency."
