The November fullmoon occurs in the solar sign of Taurus and the Lunar sign of Rohini during a penumbral Lunar eclipse, where the shadow of the earth falls partially across the moon.
The full moon occurs at AEST Nov 30 2029, MDT 0229, and GMT 0929.
The eclipse begins at 745pm to 1053 pm AEST lasting 3 hours and 8 minutes. This evening is a time for sadhana, and care of the mind. Chant the Holy name. Pour yourself as an offering into the river of Light. We may be feeling the impacts of this shadow influence in relational realms over these days as we enter the eclipse season.
Paradoxically the Moon is in its most favoured place in the heavens being exalted in the nakshatra of Rohini, the beautiful Red star of Aldebaran in Taurus ruled by Venus the Goddess of Love. Rohini symbolises passion, beauty, sensuality, and is ruled by the deity called Prajapati, the creative force of the universe.The sidereal constellation of Taurus reflects an earthy, devotional love and groundedness, The exalted Moon here amplifies Shakti, the relational and expressive energy of the Divine, which may be shadowed by the exaggerated nodal axis of this eclipse.
My teacher Lee, says the way for a man to find and express his feminity is to give himself to service; the way for a woman to fully express her feminity is to repeatedly forgive. Balancing these elements grows out of adoration and respect. The shadow of this lunar eclipse may be purifying our relationship to male and female energy, revealing where we are out of alignment to the deep beauty and nurturance of the Moon’s grace in Rohini.
In the morning
When I began to wake,
It happened again-
That You, Beloved,
had stood over me all night
That as soon as I began to stir
You put your lips on my forehead
And lit a Holy Lamp
Inside my heart.
Let the fire of suffering burn as the Light of Love
