This week we have a full moon in Taurus on Thursday morning here in New Zealand. That means if you're a Taurus or Scorpio (it's opposite sign) or you have those planets in a prominent position (That requires your birth time and an astrologer) it's a particularly important time for you, especially around feelings being heightened, both positively and negatively.
In case you didn't know I was brought up with astrology, my mum has been a professional astrologer since I was young so some of this has seeped in and some I get reminded of often, thanks Mum! It is helpful to know a little basic astrological moon info so you know what to expect with full and new moons.
Full Moon Must Knows from Mum
Don't make final decisions near the full moon as they can bring emotional complications.
They can be good for getting things done as they do generate a lot of energy.
Full moons are not good for clear thinking. They are more instinctual.
They are good for emotional or spiritual matters and healing (Spirit is closer to the earth on full moons) if everyone is in harmony.
They exaggerate feelings, both positive or negative.
They are often extremely emotional and full of drama.
Full moons are good for celebrations and situations where there is a need to express emotions.
They are good for bringing out aches and pains and other health issues to look at, as the fluid content of the body builds up at full moons – around the brain also, so personality disorders are more likely to come out.
For the individuals, full moons in your own sign and in the sign of your ascendant, moon and midheaven are always more powerful for you but some are naturally more powerful than others such as the Cancerian full moon at the end of December or in January.
You will notice that they are usually more extreme before the full moon is exact, up to a week beforehand. Often by the day itself it’s all over and things even out (although sometimes they can turn around and bite you the day after.)
It’s important to be our own observers if there are issues that arise near full moons, so seek time alone if necessary.
If there are good energies around it’s an excellent time to enjoy the best of everything with loved ones or friends.
Full moons can also move the Earth's tectonic plates, causing earthquakes, as well as cause the ocean tides ebbing and flowing, so imagine what they can do to us humans who are made up of around 70% water.
The New Moon
Start projects, sign papers and put plans into action. New moons bring the ability to think logically without emotion getting in the way.
Ancient tribes including Maori would use the new moon to rest physically. They would make plans and decisions as the physical energy levels are low. (the light blocks off at the new moon.) As the energy builds up towards the full moon the plans are carried out as emotions get stronger and energy levels rise in the body.

I find it very helpful to have a moon calendar for planning. The following full moon will be on November 23rd in Gemini, so a biggy for Geminis and Sagis.
The next new moon will be November 8th.
wishing you healing moon times
