Marvelous time for a Moondance

Your true self is not something you find, it’s something you remember.  Last week NASA revealed a galaxy loaded with billions of Earthlike planets.  We are so not alone!  We feel the urgency to see the bigger picture.  That together, dancing in a big delicious milky way, we are magnificent stars.

“I don’t dig nature at all...I think the truly natural things are dreams, which nature can’t touch with decay.”  Bob Dylan

When you’re clear about your destiny, you stop chasing butterflies and do the work.  Clarity is with us again as Mental Mercury turns direct today!  Our destination this week is the Taurus Full Moon’s opposition to the Scorpio Sun, coming Sunday, November 17th, at 7:15 AM, PST.  

We all have a Darth Vader inside us.  A place where we have put on defensive masks to hide our wounds.  The job of Scorpio is to uncover masks, while the resourceful Taurus Moon illuminates the love inside.   

♡ Date Night:  Venus in Capricorn and Mars in Virgo
Down to earth!  Date night isn’t very glamorous this week, but it has the potential to solidify your partnership.  The lovers are all about redesigning your busy-ness plans, exposing where you hide from each other.  Warrior Mars shows up with the blueprints under one arm, and the goddess of love holds the permits for excavating.  This couple is relentlessly determined to create a firm foundation to build a lasting relationship.  Digging deep will help you remember your love for one another, your most precious treasure.  This is work that must be done by hand.  

The Force of illumination is with you.
Here’s your horoscope for the week of November 10-16, 2013:

Aries ♈ (March 20-April 19)
You don’t have to dig to find your courage, it’s right on the surface of your entrepeurneurship.  You have the self-confidence to weather this time of painstaking attention to detail, not your favorite thing, in order to excavate the errors of “my way or the highway” type thinking.  Therein lies your treasure.  The beginning of the week is a little foggy for you, but clarity comes through your intuition this Wednesday and Thursday.  It’ll be like making camp in a new territory.  Warm and fresh.  

Taurus ♉ (April 20-May 20)
Don’t just dream sweet dreams of security in this chaotic world, get on your hands and knees, dig deeply enough to make room for the roots of a growing tree.  Otherwise it’s all just talk.  The Taurus Full Moon in your sign empowers you to be the smart one who sells all those picks, axes and wheelbarrows to the gold miners.  You get the steady income.  This is the rich kind of partnership you want to create!  You’ll feel a subtle but dreamy shift this Wednesday when the planet of visions turns direct and fills your friendships with a deep compassion and universal love.
Gemini ♊ (May 21-June 20)
When you have a dream you can’t let go of, trust your instincts and do the work.  Conjure up some patience.  Under the revealing light of the Taurus Full Moon, your exquisite antennae are up and your sensors firing.  Material from memories are raw, not pleasurable, right now.  A wildness is stirred inside you.  The kind that flies from the fingertips of the sorcerer and magician.  Work your magic.  There’s some barbaric destructiveness involved in cutting a hole in that wall.  

Cancer ♋ (June 21-July 21)
Healing takes the courage to dig up some rotten bits.  You’re our hero because even when you can’t see the light at the end of the tunnel, you keep digging.  Even though you’re in your luckiest year (of a 12 year cycle), you know that doing the footwork is part of the miracle. Tuesday is a great day to broaden your horizons and make a strategic plan to get what you want.  Do you know what that is?  When you do, all the doors are opening for you without even a push.
Leo ♌ (July 22-August 22)
Like the strength of the relentlessly growing root that cracks the boulder in two, the Taurus Full Moon shines light on your strengths and splits open an obstacle to your career success. Look to your family values and conditioning for what keeps you grounded and what keeps you stuck.  Blast off comes this Wednesday afternoon when something surprising offers you more freedom.  Your spirits are lifted and you’re loaded with creative energy.  Don’t let some quivering nerves undermine your self-confidence on Thursday.  Without fear, you can revitalize your relationship.  

Virgo ♍ (August 23-September 22)
Right now your most deeply held beliefs are shining a clear light on your words, making the Taurus Full Moon an auspicious time to speak up.  To teach and write.  You’ll feel your spiritual direction and your commitment to others take a quiet but powerful turn beginning this Wednesday.  It’s as if the fog lifts on your hopes and wishes and you can see clearly now that you are not only magnificent, but powerful beyond your wildest dreams.  Intensity grows under those unfulfilled desires.

Libra ♎ (September 23-October 22)
Would digging seem like dirty work to you if you knew you were about to strike it rich?  The Scorpio Sun is illuminating your house of resources, the home of Taurus the tortoise.  It’s step by step out of your brilliant intellect into the depths of your soul’s desire.  Nothing else will content you now.  You’re trudging through the detail work now, all in preparation for putting your dreams into action beginning early December.  You’ll be tempted to exaggerate the seriousness of some events, but don’t.  Watch for a kicker this Wednesday and Thursday when your relationships get all fired up!  

Scorpio ♏  (October 23-November 21)
The Scorpio eagle has landed!  You’re ready to dig up the bulbs that bloomed this year, splitting them into two, planting them again for double the flowering in 2014.  The flower is the enlightenment of the plant, as the bird is the enlightenment of the reptile.  You are the enlightment of deeply buried treasure, the ancient artifacts unearthed through your powerful drive to embrace your passions.  Reconciliation is in the air, especially Tuesday.  Take a risk.  Say it out loud.  Be the first to say I love you!

Sagittarius ♐ (November 22-December 20)
You know that design can be a funny word, especially when it refers to how life looks rather than how it works.  The Taurus Full Moon on November 17th is pulling you to the slower pace of a wise observer who knows better than to dig up a plant just to see how its growing! Solutions will seem to fall out of the sky for you this Wednesday and Thursday.  You’re in no mood to compromise but you’re willing to take a radically different look at an old problem.  

Capricorn ♑ (December 21-January 19)
No-nonsense mood starts your week, and you’re not backing off from confrontations.  The security of having money in the bank helps you sleep at night, but the challenge for you dear Capricorn is to dig into your dreams, even the ones you judge to be impractical.  Dig at their roots instead of just hacking away at the leaves.  What do you truly want?  Under the Taurus Full Moon you can prosper, but the thing that sets you free is to believe that anything is possible.

Aquarius ♒ (January 20-February 17)
The light of the Taurus Full Moon shines on your family, your roots, and brings to a culmination certain ambitions you’ve had.  You are the great explorer of human needs, and right now you are called to the descent into the depths of your heart.  It may seem recklessness on your part, but digging into the endless abyss of your true Self is actually courageous.  A little hurt may get blown out of proportion this Thursday so stay with the big dose of generosity of spirit that you’ll feel.

Pisces ♓  (February 18-March 19)

Time to excavate those politicians who have dug their feet into the sand and no longer listen to what’s being said. They’ve taken up too much space in your head.  Your ability to communicate what’s truly needed is like a shining light on the stodgy patriarchal beliefs holding us back.  Sunday and Monday are your days to fire up that stunningly accurate intuition and draw down healing to smooth over those relationship wounds.  Big ol’ wet Neptune in your sign turns direct this Wednesday, putting practical feet on dreams you’ve been dreaming since June.  You’re in the best position to teach that everyone is your mirror.
