This Sagittarius New Moon is fertile for growth, if you can embrace all that growth entails. Sometimes there are growing pains, we’d like to avoid, but they make us adapt and become something more. Waken the visionary in you and expand your ideas of what you deem possible. We’re talking Jupiter here, it’s a big planet!  Monday is a good day to orient yourself and launch through the gate. Give yourself a running start, but be ready to reach a pace that will sustain you into the new year.

Make sure you give yourself space during this time, a little extra time for yourself, some extra time outdoors, and especially space for your dreams. If you tend to confine yourself, you know, play it safe, be practical to a fault, don’t. Stop trying to be realistic and if you catch yourself holding back, remember now is not the time. Sagittarius is a powerful force which can launch you further than you’ve dared dream. So dare, dream and keep going!

If you are a big planner and don’t know all of the details of how you will get from here to there, don’t worry to much. Sagittarius is the director behind the scenes, putting those key missing pieces in place, so try to have patience. Do what you can, and just breathe. Let the centaur carry you over that unfamiliar terrain. Sagittarius is all about moving forward, so now is not the time to hit the breaks. You don’t need to race, just keep going.

Shop local this holiday season!

Shopping local is one way you can directly impact the local economy, and not in a small way, either.

One study shows $45 of every $100 spent at small, local businesses stays in the local economy. National chains only keep local $13 of every $100 spent.  So, why send $32 out of state (and often out of the country) if you don’t have to?

Full Beaver Moon in Taurus

Full Beaver Moon in Taurus

Full Beaver MoonWhen: Sunday, Nov 17, 2013, 09:16:30 AM Central Standard Time 25° 26′ Taurus

Beaver Moon is the common US full moon name for November. As we’ve seen in the prior months, each symbolic name references a point within the epitome of the month. Beavers are coming into their fullness in November. So much so that the Natives knew to set traps early in the month because the beaver would be in her glory.

Other names for the full moon this month:

Dakota Sioux: Moon When Horns Are Broken Off

Celtic: Dark Moon, Pagan: Tree Moon, New Guinea: Tiger Shark Moon

Full Moon in Taurus

Taurus is very practical, and it’s elemental sign is Earth and is all about adapting to physical life. We’re talking slowing down and focusing on the things which make life a joy and pleasure. Think slow food, senseless beauty, time spent in nature. It’s all about being here now, not to bliss out, but to take in the present moment. Whether you take a walk, play an instrument, learn a new skill, dance, whatever, now is the time you are called to express and experience your physical life.

Explore your senses: sight, sound, smell, taste and touch. Cook a meal and share it. Explore the textures of your life, view everything as if through a documentary lens, or as a poet who wants to capture every detail. Be lush in your exploration. If you have a partner to do this exploring with in a more sensual fashion, so much the better! Taurus is ruled by Venus, who is all about love and beauty.

It’s also a good time to take stock of what has value, not just your bank account, but what people, places or things you value the most. Are you spending the time nurturing what matters most?

One way to honor the full moon is meditation. We found this on YouTube: 20 minute Full Moon Meditation.  Blessed Be!
